The hits keep coming as Castle Grey-Shitz is ready to make your dreams come to true. Then again maybe your dreams don’t come true, and instead your team comes crashing down around you, leaving you preparing for your fantasy football draft in late May. Try and avoid that, listen to Grey’s top 20 Third Basemen post, and use this podcast as your book on tape. Draft good players, win your league! We can help! This is turning into an infomercial and not the introduction to a podcast. Where did I go off the rails? Any who, here we are, third basemen; Machado, Arenado, Bryant, Ramirez, Rendon, and the whole gang. We go about 30 deep on this one, giving you all the jewels and gems that Mobb Deep dropped on ‘Em. We talked to ‘Em and recovered the gems. Oh yeah, Third base be deep yo!

    Roto 6×6 with doubles, choose 5 keepers, no salary or draft considerations. Keep for as long as you want.

    Trout, Bregman, Abreu, Cano, Rendon, Odor, Devers

    I’m in a 9×9 category keeper/dynasty hybrid 14 team league. I’m currently keeping 3 second basemen, but there are only 2 utility spots and 1 2B spot. How important is it to be able to be flexible with my roster? Is it important enough to sell one of my 2B for half price?

      @Peter: I never try and sell good assets at a discount. It’s early, that depth will play itself out.

    Hi Ralf,

    would like your recommendation for a 7 player keeper league, 14 teams, H2h:

    Scoring:
    R, H, 2b, 3b, Hr, rbi, sb, bb, avg
    W, L, K, Hld, Sv, ERA, WHIP, QS, K/9

    For sure:
    Blackmon + Machado + JD Martinez + Dozier + McCutchen + Kluber

    For my 7th keeper, please let me know, which is best for my team:
    Didi Gregorius + Lorenzo Cain + Tanaka + McCullers

    thanks for the advise!

      @Chris: In that scoring with doubles and triples, I’m feeling Lorenzo in the Benzo!

    Bought the Crab Army Shirt. Is that a party foul/violation as I am not a prospector?

    hey ralph. in a 16 team dynasty league, h2h, 6×6 with OPS and k/bb extra cats plus QS instead of W. we roster 276 prospects and I need to determine who I’m going to drop so I can participate in the draft. I traded my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rd picks last year to make a successful charge at the title so i’m going to be drafting really late.

    I have caratini, mountcastle, blankenhorn, andres gimenez, yu cheng chang, starling, pache, jhailyn, yusniel, kiriloff, luzardo, pete lambert, alex reyes, funkhouser, de la cruz, ragans, fernando romero.

    right now i’m probably throwing caratini, blankenhorn, funkhouser, lambert, and de la cruz back. I’m torn on whether i should toss back gimenez and/or chang. Gimenez seems like he’s tracking to be a better IRL prospect than fantasy so even though he has some support, not sure I feel like he’s going to break out this year. as for chang, i like his general profile as one that has a chance to have some nice value even though he’s more under the radar. so who would you drop from my minors list? and would you keep gimenez and/or chang?

      @Brian: I’d go Chang. He’ll have less trade value.

    Hey Ralph,
    Keeper question. 8 team H2H point based league. Each week every team can only start 7 pitchers, so your pitching starts are always the same with the team your playing that week. Can keep players forever. Each team does keep 15 players. Which 5 do you cut:
    Goldy, Jose Ramirez, Manny, Story, JD Martinez, Stanton, Buxton, Hosmer, Sano, Moncada, Josh Bell, Strasburg, Giolito, Taijuan Walker, Taillon, McCullers, Corbin, Glasnow, Alex Wood and Snell. Thanks.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      @Schwab: Glasgow, Giolito, Snell, Story, Moncada. You gotta cut bait in 8 teams unless they’re the goods.

      @Jimmy: Haha, I think it was actually the connection from Skype. Audio drives me crazy. I have no idea why that happened. Goes in and out too.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: maybe you should try it without audio

    Hey Ralph, enjoyed the pod as always. Quick question, where would you rank Julio Pablo Martinez in your First Year Player Draft list?

      @Paste: I think I’d have to move him within the top 15 conservatively.
