So the title is a bit of a superlative.  What was I gonna say, “The Mostly Kinda Good Fantasy Baseball Team?”  You’ll get over your scoffing, I have faith in you.  This is the best 2015 fantasy baseball team that I can put together when drafting from my top 100 for 2015 fantasy baseball and top 400 for 2015 fantasy baseball.  Honestly, I could draft another 25 teams from those lists, and they’d all be different, but equally terrific… Well, one of the twenty-five would only be almost terrific, but it would be really hard to tell which one that is.  If I took Adam Jones in the 1st round, everything after would change.  If I took Anthony Rendon in the 1st round, everything after would change.  For this exercise, I’m taking Mike Trout first, because, well, I have him first overall.  Until pick 100, I’m taking one guy somewhere in every fifteen picks.  It would be nice if I was in a league where someone drafted F-Her and Kershaw in the first round and I was able to take Anthony Rizzo in the 2nd round (which is likely), but since Trout and him are in my first 10 picks, according to the rules I’ve set up for myself, I can’t take them both. Then, as we all know, once you get into the 100’s, there’s wide gaps between ADP and where players are actually taken.  People tend to look at team need over value.  So for this exercise, once I get to pick #101, I’m going to pick two players every twenty picks.  Finally, because there is so much latitude in the last 200, I gave myself free reign to fill up my team.  Throughout the draft, I also gave myself the ability to reach to a lower draft pick, but not reach forward.  Or reach around, if you’re feeling frisky.  It should still be my ideal team… Or not.  Let’s see, shall we?  Bee tee dubya, this team is 5×5, one catcher, 5 OFs, MI, CI, 1 UT, 9 P, 3 bench, just like the Razzball Commenter Leagues (Go sign up or start a league).  Anyway, here’s the best 2015 fantasy baseball team:

C: Robinson Chirinos (306)
1B: Chris Davis (38)
2B: Scooter Gennett (175)
SS: Danny Santana (101)
3B: Nolan Arenado (20)
MI: Brett Lawrie (181)
CI: Eric Hosmer (75)
OF:  Mike Trout (1)
OF: Starling Marte (63)
OF: Jorge Soler (99)
OF: Gregory Polanco (141)
OF: Steven Souza (166)
UTIL: Juan Lagares (309)

P: Jeff Samardzija (52)
P: Mike Fiers (108)
P: Hyun-Jin Ryu (120)
P: Dellin Betances (130)
P: Gio Gonzalez (159)
P: Wily Peralta (195)
P: Tony Cingrani (217)
P: Steve Cishek (201)
P: Brad Boxberger (292)
Bench: Darren O’Day (326)
Bench: Bobby Parnell (327)
Bench: Joakim Soria (328)

SO, THIS TEAM IS THE BOMB DOT ORG, BUT IS THERE ANY CHANCE OF ACTUALLY GETTING IT?

No.  Sorry, I don’t mean to be short with you.  Let me say that again:  Noooooooooooo.  As I said in the opening, this is an exercise to give you an idea of a team I wouldn’t kick out of bed.  With this exercise, I don’t look at ADP, so it’s nice that I want Polanco at 141 or Marte at 63, but it may not happen.  Still, for every guy I’m getting for this team later than their ADP, I’m also reaching, according to their ADP (see Arenado).  What this team should show in broad strokes — Did you get aroused when you read broad strokes?  Gross! — this team shows how I build a team.  Names change, but early on I’m looking at the corner spots, then I focus on outfield, while sprinkling in a pitcher here and there.  I completely wait on relievers, taking one around 115-130 overall, then whenever I can after the top 200.  If I see a middle infielder I like, I jump on them.  Speaking of which…

HOW DID YOU NOT JUMP ON WONG?  UM, YEAH, THAT’S WHAT I MEANT!

I love Wong long time.  Tis is true, prematurely balding man.  I arrived to the 60th pick and I didn’t have a 2nd outfielder, and I felt I needed one more than a 2nd baseman, even one I schlonged for.  This goes back to the point that you need to build your own team at the draft and not “have to get players.”  This team just happened to be a scenario where I got Trout.  Getting Trout is a nice problem to have.  For what it’s Wuertz, Wong is going deeper (oh yeah baby) than I have him ranked, so I’d prolly still be able to draft him.

“GREY, YOUR MUSTACHE IS YOGA PANTS ON THAT HOT MOM PICKING UP MY FRIEND FROM DETENTION, BUT WHAT GIVES WITH THE BENCH? NO BENCH BATS?”

First off, welcome to the site.  Get comfortable.  That doesn’t mean put your feet on the furniture.  What’s wrong with you?  Why I’m saying welcome is I’ve been saying for years I don’t draft bench bats.  If you didn’t know that, you’re new.  It’s okay.  We were all new once.  Shoot, I love that new person smell.  Don’t draft bench bats in 12 team and shallower leagues.  They’re useless.  You’re not going to hold them for longer than a few days after your draft.  Now, if you draft a few middle relievers with your last few picks, maybe — just maybe — you’ll luck into a closer getting injured before the season.  And, if that doesn’t work out, then you can drop the middle relievers without any hesitance.  It’s more of a hindrance to have someone like, say, Dexter Fowler on your bench because then this happens, “Oh, it looks like like Drew Storen might be hurt, who should I grab?  Hmm…Actually, who should I drop?  Should I drop Fowler?  He’s hitting leadoff and the Cubs are supposed to win 162 games and– Oh, it’s too late anyway, someone else grabbed Casey Janssen already.”  And then Janssen goes on to save 42 games and win the Rollie Rolaids award.  Oh, and in deeper leagues, bench bats are okay (within reason).

DAMN, YOUR OUTFIELD IS SO YOUNG THAT YELICH BABYSITS IT.

That’s my one big pet peeve with this team.  I could get to May and have no outfield outside of Trout.  I don’t think Marte is that risky, but he looks like a perennial All-Starrer (totally a word!) compared to the rest of my outfield.  At one point, I fake-drafted Pederson instead of Souza, but I changed it up because I wanted a guy that at least was guaranteed a starting job.

GREY, TELL ME TRUE, WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THIS TEAM?

The pitching, which is hilarious, since I drafted only one starter in the top 100.  My pitching is ridunk.  I suggest doing some mocks where you don’t draft a starter until the 100th pick overall just to see what kind of team you can assemble.  I’m guessing a pitching staff that is a lot better than you thought you could assemble.

CAN I TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR TEAM AND SEND IT TO MYSELF OVER ELECTRONIC MAIL AND PUT A RED FLAG ON THE EMAIL INDICATING IMPORTANT?

Yes, be my guest.  The only thing is you don’t want to get too caught up in trying to replicate my draft because if someone else takes a guy you want, you’re gonna start scrambling and then sweating and then shart your Underoos.  Just build the best team you can and use my example as a guide.  For s’s and g’s, go to my top 400 and put your best fantasy baseball team into the comments below.

    5×5 Roto … 10-team keeper league … keep 6 players (no year/time restrictions).
    Which 6 would you keep as keepers? #1 pick in the draft

    E. Encarnacion, Dozier, Chris Davis, Desmond, Jose Reyes, Ryan Braun, Adam Jones, Christian Yelich, Aroldis Chapman, Garrett Richards

    Thanks for asking .. Yes, I am in a few Razzball Commenter Leagues :) lol

            @Grey: 78/24/81/13/.278

            I think the HR’s are a little lofty but 20 should be easily reachable. Either way he’s going to be hard to draft because of the differing floors across the web. Fans has his him batting.288 which I thick is way to aggressive. If I’m in a deep league or NFBC he is a guy you take a chance on but in a 12 he is just as risky as a Dickerson or a Brantley, I wonder if Im so up on him because I’ve been eating lox almost every day.

              That’s what Rudy gives Braun after using Steamer…Either way, his thumb and general health malaise worry me… He seems like he’s being held together by duct tape and the occasional needle pop…. Dickerson is in Coors and about to get rowdy/bawdy

    Great article!

    Would you take Cabrera at round 1 cost/last year on contract or Wong at round 18 cost/3 years left. I already have two 1B and 1 3B
    Feels weird cutting Cabrera after all this time.

    My keepers thus far:
    Arenado round 7/3 years left
    Goldschmidt round 10/last year
    Rizzo round 12/1 year left
    Marte round 14/2 years left
    Brantley round 17/3 years left

    So in a league where most drafters stay close to whatever site we are drafting on ADP, when do you take a guy like arenado?

    Let’s say he’s 80ish on the draft sites adp list everyone is drafting from, do you still take him late second round’ish?

    • Jim says:
      (link)

      Oops! I kind of commented the same thing before reading others posts. I think I would take him in the 3rd round if he’s still available. @the swinging:

    Hey! You forgot to put NSFW on this post. Thank GOD I’m not allowed to wear sweatpants on cas-fri. I’m picking 4th in a 10 team, mostly thanks to Prince Fielder and slightly thanks to Jay Bruce. Without looking at how ADP gives us Razzballers an advantage in regular-people drafts, I’d say this could be achievable (Note: Parenthesis represent my draft pick not your rank, my b!):

    C: Travis D’Arnaud (224)
    1B: Albert Pujols (24)
    2B: Jason Kipnis (44)
    SS: Alexei Ramirez (77)
    3B: Josh Donaldson (17)
    MI: Kolten Wong (64)
    CI: Freddie Freeman (37)
    OF: Andrew McCutchen (4)
    OF: Matt Kemp (57)
    OF: Marcell Ozuna (84)
    OF: Jorge Soler (97)
    OF: J.D. Martinez (117)
    UTIL: Chris Carter (137)

    P: Jake Arrieta (54)
    P: Mike Fiers (104)
    P: Cody Allen (124)
    P: Drew Smyly (144)
    P: Gio Gonzalez (157)
    P: James Shields (177)
    P: Andrew Cashner (184)
    P: Mark Melancon (197)
    P: Jonathan Papelbon (204)
    Bench: Ken Giles (217)
    Bench: Andrew Miller (237)
    Bench: Brad Boxberger (244)

    Wow. That was harder than expected. Overall, satisfied, but I tried not to change things once I committed. I felt like I started to get a little heavy on speed and average in the first, so I tried to balance that out. Also veered from the pitching chart a bit. With only 10-teams, I assumed most catchers would be off the board early. I guessed at who might be available outside the Top-10 at my pick. Fun game!

                      Power hitters don’t all go the route of Giancarlo or Ozuna and come out mashing from day one. We have plenty of players tabbed as ‘power hitters’ who don’t figure it out until late. And back to my original stance: this isn’t a guy who needs to pull everything out to hit HRs. 9/5/9 were his splits to LF/C/RF for his HRs. I like guys who can hit the ball hard to all fields.

                      Where ESPN has him (162) I could even see the flyer, but I’m not convinced… I wasn’t convinced on Bautista and Edwin either after their first year of producing….I have a hard time trusting a change of approach…

                      I can understand that. I don’t think I’d be talking about him as much if he only did it across 150 to 200 PAs but it was 480 and over 123 games. I know his BABIP will regress (hard not to when it’s .389) but I don’t think it will to the point where he’s not at the very least a .270 hitter. Anyways, I am very much not doing the JFOH ‘just to be contrary’ here. I have my reasons to like him for 2015.

                      But what about for 84th overall? We all have our likes and dislikes. Ozuna is JD to me. We should do a fun bet on who has the better season between those two. What should it be? Doesn’t have to be money.

                      Since you’re there, you should go check Marcell Ozuna stats and do a side by side. Ozuna is my reference point for why I like JD this year.

                      (link)

                      @Sky: Definitely very similar in everything but GB% and FB%. Their GB/FB were closer in 2013. Ozuna hits more grounders, and although he doesn’t steal, he’s a faster guy. But if you’re saying JD did change his approach, he’s hitting more flies, which could translate to a small bump in HR/RBI, but that BABIP and HR/FB% is unsustainable. Basically, I see your point, Sky, but I also see Grey’s! I’m just the referee here, LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!

And you guys are much more expert-y than me, so, I’ll make sure to attach this thread to the “Notes” column in my War Room spreadsheet and read it nightly before my slumbers.

                      Haha, there’s no beefing here and definitely no expertiness going on. I was just making it clear to Grey that I wasn’t saying it just to say it and I’m the guy who wrote about Ozuna last year! There’s obviously still room for improvement with Marcell so in that respect, he’s on the upswing. How much room Martinez has to improve is debatable. Any uptick in BB% or downward trend with K% would be huge for him. Would love to see him sneak below 25% K rates. There are very few players with that high of a K% and low of a BB% who stay successful in the BABIP/AVG. I did a quick scan of players with Greater than or equal to 350 PA from 2009 on who had a K% greater than 25% and a walk rate lower than 7% with an ISO greater than .185. The list only has 12 total players, Chris Davis appears twice (so 2 separate seasons), and 5 of them are catchers with low averages. Of course, Ozuna and JD are sitting there. Which one is the outlier who improves? TBD.

        @Grey: Yeah, I like my pitching best of all. For the record, I hate the Simmons pick. I was mad at myself for making it to pick 200 and not having my SS slot filled. I didn’t want to go backwards and revamp, so I grabbed Simmons in anger. I didn’t like any of the SS eligible choices after 200. I should have grabbed Segura in the 121-140 area and passed on either Stroman or Pollock (probably AJ since I really (maybe a bit too much) like Marcus this year).

    Always love this writeup every year.

    Anywho, in a 10 or 12 team league that counts OBP instead of AVG, does Springer immediately become worthy of a 3rd/4th (or even 2nd) round pick? Seems like the only knock against him is AVG, and his OBP projects to beat, for example, Adam Jones (who is otherwise very comparable to him in terms of counting stats).

    Thanks!

        I’m hoping to grab an OF1, 1B, and MI or 3B in the first 3 rounds, would be great to snag him as my OF2 in round 4.

        Unrelated, but you weren’t kidding about how crazy deep pitching is this year. I’ve done 2 10-team mocks so far, and have been able to get guys like Ross, Arrieta, Hisashi, and even Shark all the way in rounds 9-12. My main league fields a traditional lineup (3OF, 1 C, no MI/CI, and 1 UTL) – you can draft an entire offense before taking a single “Razzball ace-level” pitcher!

  18. Dave says:

    Gray,

    I hate to bust in on your Arenado parade, but I’ve looked closely at Arenado and I don’t see the same 2nd round guy you do. Forgive me, I have all the respect in the world for you and you can ignore the rest of this comment now if you wish, I’ll still love your articles. But here goes…

    First I noticed your remark on his BA in the minors, saying “Everyone loved him in the minors. He hit .388 one year, .298 another year, .364 another…” I see a .364 year in 2013, but no .298 or .388, perhaps you got numbers jumbled somewhere? He hit .308 in 2010 in single A, .315 in 2011 in A+, .285 in 2012 in AA. His .364 in 2013 was only in 18 games in AAA, and he followed that up with a .267 and .287 in the majors (with another 5 game AAA stint at .350 in between). You also noted his lack of Ks as a plus, but I see he doesn’t draw many walks either, with 25 and 23 the last two seasons. That worries me that he isn’t very patient at the plate, much like a lot of other young hitters who have disappointed in the past.

    Secondly, he hasn’t shown me that he’s a 25+ HR guy yet. He had 26 back in 2011 in A+, but since then he has had 12, 13, and 18 the last 3 years in leagues above A+, most of which was with the Rockies.

    He only has 4 steals in the last 3 seasons, so I’m not sure why you project him for 5 this year, but this isn’t why he’s being drafted so it’s whatever. If you project his 2014 rates for Runs and RBIs to 600 ABs, a lofty number already, that’s only 80 Runs and 84 RBIs.

    Fact is, he’s not a 25 HR guy (yet, he may develop further), he doesn’t contribute on steals or have great rates, and he could just as easily hit .262 as he could .292. Suddenly he’s slumping a little in early-May and getting days off, and we’re cursing his name the rest of the season as we get a 60/15/65/.262/1 line from our 2nd round pick. And that’s if he doesn’t catch whatever CarGo and Tulo have and miss half the season. That last line is a joke. I hope.

    I get that Arenado COULD have the kind of season you’re projecting, but it requires an awful lot to fall right for him. Compare him to guys you have ranked 30 or 60 spots lower like Posey, Heyward, Bruce or Ozuna and I don’t see much of a difference. Upside, sure, that’s what has his ADP in the 4th round most everywhere else, and I think that’s more acceptable for him.

    This coming from someone who’s drafted Lawrie, Stanton, and Harper the last 3 years with early round picks. Even Stanton off 37 and 34 HR seasons only gave us a 62/24/62/.249/1 line in 2013, and Arenado is no Stanton.

    • El Diablo says:
      (link)

      @Dave: the Stanton comparison isn’t fair because he was playing injured for much of 2013 and the marlins around him absolutely sucked.

      I personally believe Arenado is more fitting in the 30-45 range. When you look at those prorated stats you mentioned, they really aren’t far off from what Beltre did last year. Offense is down and someone with the potential to go 25+ .290 at a shallow(er) position is very valuable. I’d much rather own Arenado than Posey, Heyward, Bruce, or Ozuna.

    • K-DOGG says:
      (link)

      @Dave:

      Good analysis! That has been niggling me the last month of so with this Arenado bandwagon that has trampled this site. 2nd round pick? Really? I agree on the 4th/5th round upside but he didn’t open my eyes as much as a Rendon or even a JD Martinez. More of a case could be made for JD being a breakout candidate with his all-fields power in Comerica than Arenado with 16 of his 18 HR in the thin air of Coors.

      • Dave says:

        @K-DOGG: Oh geeze, I got Sonny Gray and Grey Albright backwards on the day of Grey’s big movie premiere. How embarrassing!

    • Nathan says:
      (link)

      @Dave: As a regretful Rockies fan who lives in where the Rockies used to play AAA ball I can see where there is a lot to be excited about with Arenado. His Line Drive and Contact rates are very encouraging and while I see your point with avg, the fact is that his BABIP was .294 last year. That is pretty low and 60 point below what Stanton’s was last year (since you brought him up). The fact that he doesn’t strike out much only encourages that fact that he will increase in batting avg.

      Arenado also broke his finger on a freak sliding play. Not only did that keep him out for at least a month, but the Rockies also rushed him back into play because they were so desperate for a product on the field. That injury severely hurt his ability to drive the ball for much of the season. Before the injury he was posed for a break out season.

      He has apparently been building strength and in a place like Coors Field, his luck will improve. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen him drive a ball off the outfield wall for a double. He might not be 2nd round value, but he also might be 2nd round value. Hopefully the Rockies can stay somewhat healthy to help out his counting stats as well.

    With both being 1B eligible in Yahoo leagues, is there really that huge of a difference between Ortiz and Pujols?

    I feel like Ortiz is almost the better choice due to the fact that he won’t see the field, his lineup, his ballpark, and that seems to be less of an injury risk.

              Oh for sure. I only mentioned because I have seen it happen. The low 5 start setup makes it pretty hard to not get eligibility if you played the year prior. Usually only happens to September callups who don’t get many ABs

    So I’m pretty sure that I know the answer to this but curious for some replies…

    In a H2H 10 tm keeper, we keep 5 (first five rds). I trade away some picks last year and now I don;t pick until the 11th rd. So in determining my keepers i have:
    Stanton, Upton, Puig, Arenado and Scherzer right now, but I can get Adam Jones. So do I keep 4 OFs and fill my util spot going into the draft or do I swap out either Upton or Puig with jones and go that route?

    Thanks all!

        @Grey: cool that what I was thinking!

        SAMSIES!!!

        Right now I’m giving away keepers to other teams. Thaks to our league rules wwe can trade away allour picks for players to make a playoff run and then sell them off in the offseason. because of that I am also trying to get Rendon by offering a package of Puig and Sale. Wish me luck….

    As instructed by the Grey-one:

    I’m looking for some help on my NL keepers this year. Through some wick-ahd (i’m not even from Boston but I am drinking Sam Adams. It’s 10:30 here, but 5:00 in between timezones somewhere) smart drafting in years past I have redonk guys and rock bottom draft prices I can keep them at. I can keep 4 total. I have to choose between Stanton and McCutchen with my first round pick. After that I have three left from Goldschmidt in round 8, Puig in 9, Rendon in 11 or Strasburg in 16.

    I’m leaning towards skipping Strasburg and taking all bats, but is Goldschmidt enough power to get Cutch and Rendon, or is Stanton and Goldy too much power? Can i have too much power? If i do take Strasburg do I skip Puig or Rendon? It’s a H2H league, so I guess Puig since he is so streaky?

    Grassy -ass!

        @Grey: I doubt I’ll be getting that team in a RCL
        Heh… That would be awesome. It looks like a 10 team league. Those guys were taking all the top arms while I sniped all the positional hitting. You can build a monster staff without taking top tier guys. I take back my Kersha comment earlier this month. Can you forgive me fantasy baseball lothario?

      • Bye Felicia says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Do you think getting the #1 overall draft position gives you a distinct advantage? I mean you are obviously getting the best player in fantasy, but I mean the rest of the draft? Especially if you are getting offense out of the way early while everyone else takes pitching. This gives you the run at the 100-140 adp starters. I like this plan, I used it last year with great success in H2H leagues but I’m not sure how well it would translate over to roto? I watched a guy with 2 top starters, the rest closers & MR destroy my RCL . He finished top 6 in the overall master standings. Do you take pitching early in roto?

            @Grey: Not true. You could say the same thing about drafting Kershaw. He won you your league. Its more accurate to say don’t miss in the first round.

            • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
              (link)

              @halfdonkeyhalfunicorn: i’d doubt many teams that had kershaw won their leagues, and if they did they would’ve had to have gotten very lucky with hitters, as they never got a 1st round one. Due to this across many Kershaw teams i’m betting a whole lot of them did very badly, and some very very good. Probably not a lot of 2nd-4th place (i.e. teams that were close to winning but didn’t) among Kershaw-owned teams.

        • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
          (link)

          @Bye Felicia: baseball forecaster has done research on this across many years, and the top 3 picks are the best place to draft (both with and without Trout). 1st better than 2nd, 2nd better than 3rd.

    I agree that closers are harder to find later on if one doesn’t pan out early on but isn’t the level of uncertainty for bats just as bad? I mean, Souza hasn’t been guaranteed a job per you & Hosmer is, well, Hosmer depending on the year as is Lawrie’s health. Isn’t it easier to stockpile bats and then flip a lower level one for a closer than it is risky to get screwed having to pick up guys like Adam Lind if a guy gets hurt or doesn’t pan out, hoping he can keep your hitting categories afloat when he faces the right plattoony pitcher? I annually trade a LOT and usually people with bats hold the cards, not the other way around.

    Have to lock in keepers soon. 10 team, h2h. I am keeping Ad Jones $33, Cobb 15$, Arrieta 10$, Hamels $11, and Sale $23.
    Do I keep any of the next 3 or just pass and leave 3 open keeper slots (we can keep 8)?
    Gausman $6
    Adrian Gonzalez $21
    Duda $6

    Hey Grey,
    Keeper question. 8 Teams H2H points league. Can keep players for as long as you want. Each team keeps 15 players. Would you trade Hosmer, Paxton & Sano for Goldy?
    Thanks.

    Thoughts on this mock Grey? Did I wait too long on pitchers and OF depth? 12 team snake, did it on ESPN. Man, I like a lot of the pitchers that fall out of the top 100, even top 150 this year.

    C- Posey
    1B – Pujols
    2B – Kipnis
    3B – Davis
    MIF – Wong
    CIF – Hosmer
    OF – Stanton
    OF – Puig
    OF – Castillo
    OF – Werth
    OF – T. Hunter
    UTIL – A. Garcia

    P – Arrieta
    P – Carrasco
    P – Wood
    P – McHugh
    P – Salazar
    P – Reed
    P – McCarthy

    12 Team Dynasty, no time limit holding players. 11 keepers. 7×7(Hits, OPS,Losses, K/9)For sure keeping:
    Giancarlo(mmmmmm)
    Miggy
    The Good Upton
    Kris Bryant
    Hanley
    Xander
    MadBum
    Price
    Hamels
    So I’ve got that going for me. Which is nice. Gotta keep 2 more out of:
    Polanco
    Wil Myers
    Arrieta
    Garret Richards
    Mesoraco
    Leaning towards Polanco and Myers but I love me some Arrieta too. Would appreciate your sage-like wisdom on the matter. Also mulling a trade of Upton and Arrieta for Arenado…

    Grey,

    Pumped to be reading your great articles again. 12 team 6×6 OPS and K/9 and I can choose up to 4 keepers: Goldy, Longoria, Arenado, Brantley, and Upton. Ive kept Longo the past couple years and I’m over his decline…I think he’s my odd man out. Also, and obviously it depends on how the draft is going and whats available, but what would you target with the 5th round pick given those keeps? Thanks man!

      I agree with what you said, but fear you might struggle with power too… Hopefully not with Hosmer, Tomas and Myers producing like they should… Your pitching is a tad better than you need, likely why the hitting is slightly under

    Yo Grey and the Razzball team,

    I’ve been a Razzball user for 3 years now and we’ve had our ups and downs, mostly ups. I’m an ardent supporter of the War Room tool for drafting, but I’ve found it to be lacking in one critical area (for me): Comparison Rankings. I tend to agree with your rankings, because they are just about perfect. But when I’m in an ESPN or Yahoo draft room, all I can see are that site’s rankings. I usually have the war room pulled up as well so I can see both rankings at the same time, but I thought it might be useful to have both sets of rankings loaded into the downloadable War Roo so that while I’m drafting I can more easily see where I can wait on a guy or where I might need to reach. This is just an idea for next year, but I thought of it now and wanted to spit it out before I sleep again and forget it.

    For example, I’m just as high on Arenado this year as you are. But he is ranked #58 over at Yahoo and #82 at ESPN. Instead of taking him in the 2nd round, its probably safe to wait until the 3rd or 4th, while loading up on OFs like Upton or Harper. Since I’ll mostly be using the war room during the draft, it would be nice to have everything in one place so that as I’m drafting, I can easily see the difference in a player’s rankings and make wait/reach decisions.

    Anyways, I love the work you guys do. Keep on Keepin’ on.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I hear ya, would possibly be doable but can imagine a lot of headaches in implementing and I don’t put together the war room, someone else does it every year and I simply allow them to post it… So, slightly out of my hands… I could nudge the people who do it maybe, but not sure if they’d commit…. Anyway, good suggestion.

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
      (link)

      @CTP-O: two ways to work with this, i do both. A. do a lot of mocks at whatever site in question. and B. put in your own (grey’s, or a hybrid) rankings into the site, and yahoo/espn let you bounce back and forth from yours to yahoo’s/espn’s to see what each player is at. eventually you’ll notice, “oh so and so’s ADP is 117, and i want him now at 70, but i don’t have to jump yet”

  64. james says:

    yahoo auction pulic h2h, I put together a $35 pitching staff of:
    Cole, Latos, Archer, Stroman, wheeler, Shoemaker, Salazar, and Wheeler (SP)
    Storen, Cishek, Feliz (RP).

    I could have actually went lower than that, but was planning on have a $45 staff, but overspent a little on the hitters (E5, Rendon, Hanley, Longoria, Harper, Upton, Cruz, Dickerson, Ozuna, dozier, and Bryant… so 2 bench bats but were too cheap (dozier and Bryant at under $5 each).

    I agree. Wait on SP, there is just too much out there spend. As an old man, I remember being told in auction to allocate $100 for pitchers (15 years ago), then $60 (in the past 5 or so), now it is way way less to me (i think i could figure it out with $25)

    This thread is prolly over…but I thought I would post the a team based
    on Grey’s rankings while keeping track of ESPN default list. In other
    words, this would be my team (or Grey’s?!?) assuming the other 11
    draftees were on auto-draft.
    Notes: This assumes the #1 overall position in a 12-team snake. Can
    only reach down, not up (or around.) There was no consideration at
    all for either category balance or the upside/predictability tradeoff.
    Lastly, while Grey favors RPs on the bench, I will have a hard time
    passing on the likes of Av Garcia/Saunders (10th/11th round for
    Grey, being defaulted after the 24th round currently.)

    PLAYER-ROUND-POSITION-other options that round

    Rosario-15,C…skipped Hughes/Ventura/McHugh/Pineda
    Pujols-5, 1B
    Wong-9, 2B…skipped Iwakuma
    Desmond-3, SS…skipped J-Upton
    Arenado-6, 3B
    D Santana-18, MI…could have had Segura/Gyorko/Gennett
    C Davis-7, CI
    Trout -1 , OF
    Harper-2, OF
    Y Tomas-10, OF
    W Myers-12, OF…or JD Martinez…skipped Hosmer
    Soler-13, OF…or Rus.Castillo
    Khris Davis-20, UT…or Pederson/Souza
    J Zimmermann-4, P…skipped CarGo
    Arrieta-8, P
    Carrasco-11 , P…or A. Wood
    Storen-14, P…Bogaerts but getting DanSantana later
    Fiers-16, P… skipped Arcia/Cain, getting K Davis/Av Garcia later
    Rondon-17, P…skipped Escobar/N. Walker to wait on Dan Santana
    Casilla-19, P…Skipped Salazar-Cle; could have had Belt/Castellano
    Shoemaker-21, P…Could have waited until 23rd for him
    Hutchinson-22, P…Grey has him around 14 rounds earlier than ESPN default
    Schoop-23, Bench…or Vargas or Owings
    Av. Garcia-24, Bench…or Saunders. Hard to pass on these values this late
    Cecil-25, Bench…Default setting is after currently 25th round

    These also could all have been had in the last 3 rounds:
    SP-Nelson, Heaney, Bauer, Tai.Walker, Paxton,
    W.Chen, Cingrani, Hahn, Hammel, CarMart, AJ Burnett,
    Peavy, W Peralta
    RP-Broxton, L Hawkins

    Hi Grey, Hi guys,

    here is how i’m set now after reading almost ALL the Razzball articles on 2015 Draft
    i just need a last feedback for my (14) keepers:
    pick 1: #7 Encarnacion 1B power
    pick 2: #12 Bautista OF1 (pair InF/OF) power
    pick 3: #16 Desmond SS 20/20
    pick 4: #28 Altuve 2B speed
    pick 5: #73 Springer OF2 (pair InF/Of) ESPN rank#45 30/10? low avg
    pick 6: #69 Wong Util1 –> Grey loves him + breakout year + SB combo w Altuve
    pick 7:#61 K.Jansen RP1
    pick 8: #72 A.Wood SP1
    pick 9: #86 Z.Wheeler SP2 (pair over/under 1.30 whip)
    pick 10: #82 W.Myers OF3 (promising youngster in my team since 2013 / high risk/reward)

    NOW here is the deal, i lack(ed) good pitching, but won last season thanks to my bats and RPs:
    i’d go :
    pick 11: #156 M.Carpenter 3B (100runs and avg) ESPN 93 Y! 113
    pick 12: # S.Perez C (workhorse/addict) #5-6 C and i wouldnt’ risk to loose him @draft
    so i won’t have to care about searching my last bats and concentrate on SPs and youngsters/rookies (your thought?)

    how do i complete my team: pick 2 (or 1/2more if you don’t like Carp or Perez)
    SP3-4: S.Gray / Shields both are better ranked in ESPN and Y! than Grey’s and should complete my pitching (pair over/under whip 1.30) (i combo traded Shields last year hoping good)
    SP5-6-7: Archer/Salazar/Cashner (i like Archer / Grey likes Salazar but he can fall after in the draft / Cashner is risky)
    RP2-3: Melancon/Allen (i love Allen, in my team since 2013, both up for 35-40SV))(Note: we also count Holds)
    Util2: Calhoun (high runs, power, w higher avg than George and Myers) Grey#102 ESPN 67 Up for a repeat? do i need an OF here, or focus after on a Khris Davis, O.Arcia, Souza…Pederson, Y.Tomas ?

    (not in discussion now: Kendrick 2B, S.Pearce1B/OF, Odorizzi SP8, Britton RP4)
