By the title, I’m referring to the return of the Fantasy Baseball War Room.  I’m not saying the Fantasy Baseball War Room is back, as in, is a butt.  So, if Sir Mix-A-Lot is reading, I’m truly sorry for the confusion.  Our Fantasy Baseball War Room is one part draft tool, one part fantasy team evaluator, one part fantasy junkie’s s’s and g’s tool, one part holy, two parts smokes, three parts… How many parts is that so far?  Cause it’s only really seven parts total.  I think there’s one part kill-your-day-with-this-war-room-thing-a-maboob in there too.  After you’re done signing up for a Razzball Commenter League (oh, just sign up already!), this is the next step.  Practice with building a team.

If you’re unfamiliar with our Fantasy Baseball War Room, it’s a draft tool to help you track where you are at any moment in a draft.  It shows you if you have too many steals, homers… Or if your ERA or WHIP are too low.  Or too high.  Or if your lamb is still rare or should be turned (results vary on lamb).  If you’ve already drafted a team, go into the War Room, enter your team and it shows you exactly how stacked/dreadful the team is.  If you’re in the middle of a draft, you can filter which guys are left that have the most home runs according to my projections.  Or the most steals, or the most runs or the most whatever (only applicable if “Whatever” is a category in your league).  If you’re in a bind, go into a Warm Room and take a shvitz.  Ah…That’s better!  There might be some bugs in our Fantasy Baseball War Room, just comment here and we’ll look into fixes.  The default projections are mine from the 2016 fantasy baseball rankings. Step by step:

  • Sign up. If you get a message that says your email is already in the system and you don’t remember the password, just use a new email or a made-up email.  It doesn’t really matter.  It says to email us to retrieve your password, but I have to be honest, I’m not retrieving shizz.  I’ll ask my dog and see if he’ll do it.
  • Choose what kind of team you want to draft. How many catchers, outfielders, middle infielders, etc. ESPN and Yahoo are for position eligibility. It doesn’t mean you’re playing there. ESPN is 20 games started; Yahoo is 5 started and 10 games played. So that means ESPN and CBS are the same. Or wherever you play that uses 20 or 10 game eligibility is accounted for. I say configure the team to look like our Razzball Commenter League teams.  And sign up for one too!  Or three!
  • Now as you draft players, click Draft next to their name. If someone else takes them, then X them out. If a player is eligible at more than one position, drop down the menu to the position you want them at.  If you can’t find a player, search for them at the top.  As Jeff Francoeur would say, voila!  Or if you’re a Twins fan, Frank Voila!
  • Get as close to the Totals as you can.
  • Wanna start again? Delete the Team, by scrolling to the right of the player search at the top and a down arrow will appear. Click that, then click the pinwheel under ‘Taken” and delete team or sign out. We got pinwheels! Wanna throw your computer out the window from excitement?  Go for it!  For those that missed it in the first bullet point, if you forget your password, Create New User and make up a fake email.  Do not email me.
  • Note from our programmer, Jamil.  If you get this error page, then your shizz is broke and you need to buy a new computer.  But, if you don’t want to buy a new computer, you should clear your cookies and start again.  Likely what happened is you’re logged into the app still from an old version.  Less likely, you still have the same internet cache from last year and haven’t cleared your cookies once in 12 months.  I’m not judging, Cust kayin’.

  7. Trial Baby says:
    (link)

    I play in a league that is 6×6, but Head to Head each week… Categories are OBP, SLG, HR, R, RBI,SB and QS, W, K, ERA, WHIP, S.

    Because there are W and QS, do you think it increases the need to draft SP early? This is the first year we’ve had both… We also added SLG for the first time this year. Wondering how this should change my strategy… I typically wait on pitching, but…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, you need better SPs than usual… And you need more power than usual…

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Trial Baby: you could also punt saves on draft day. I used to do that format and it’s a loop hole. Seriously. Anytime you get out of 5×5 it creates a punt category. Remember there are lots if meh pitchers that are great for quality starts. In the case of raisel, who has an awful pen behind him, he gets a boost for QS since you are not expecting the wins as much. Also be weary of young arms. If they go 5 and 2/3 and give up one run you get no QS. But the guy that goes 6 and gives up three gets you a QS

      • Vegans says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Good point, Mr FOH. Do you think that would probably apply to teams with “super pens” like KC & NYY too? No sense risking a team W when you can run superstar arms out for the last half of the game.

      • Trial Baby says:
        (link)

        Thanks, guys. I think we have to carry two RP — it’s not just starlight P. So I can’t really punt, but I don’t have to prioritize.

    I’m a newbie to dynasty leagues this year so I have a question in regards to starting from scratch in one: once I get Mike’s prospect rankings, how should we merge those w/the top 500 to get value while including the youthful upside angle? Is there a strategy to a dynasty startup in drafts where you wanna fill out your starting lineup first to some degree & then focus on all the youngsters from there? If it matters, this is a 14 team h2h points league w/8 prospect spots we automatically keep along w/10 MLB players starting in 2017.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      There will be keeper rankings that take both into account… I’d try to win this year and worry about next year next year

    • JeF WiTh 1 F says:
      (link)

      @Clint: Fill out your roster first, keep in mind age when drafting, you’ll want guys that can produce now but are young enough where your not getting them in a decline..There will always be spots where you have some age and you can have the rookies behind those spots…Also draft rookies that have enough upside that you can use them in trades. Every dynasty league i’ve been in has 1 or 2 rookie hoarders…take advantage of those guys and get usable pieces for unproven rookies. Other than the cant miss type of prospects i like to use my rookies as more of trading chips rather than wait for them to come up and find out after 2 or 3 years of holding them that they aren’t what you hoped..Good Luck hope this helps

    Another keeper question for you – in my first year of this long-standing keeper league, I’m looking to snag impact minor leaguers/rookies to lay some groundwork going forward.

                  @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: to make sure you get some of those guys at those prices here’s one tip (picked up from SCHEKtor’s book). find whatever player you would be happy with as your weakest starting position (MI probably or C) player, the kind of guy you are willing to get for cheap, announce him early at a small price (so you aren’t pissed if you get stuck with him) and watch that player cost a couple of bucks more than you were willing to pay. This helps get rid of money from owners such that near end of draft you get 1-2 or more of those prospects for 2-3 bucks. less guys willing to go 4-5 for them when their money is dried out late. Definitely DON’T announce those top end prospects early though, as somebody might very well be willing to bid more then.

    • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: (the keeper has 4-7 reserve spots and most people only hold 0-2 minor leaguers)

    Grey,
    Need some help deciding on keepers. I am in a ten team, head to head points league. For keepers we are able to keep four players at whatever round they were drafted in and this continues every year and there is no limit on how many years you can keep a player. Here is my final roster from last year with the round a player can be kept in, I have the sixth pick in the first round this year in a snake style draft.

    Brian McCann (15), Anthony Rizzo (11), Dee Gordon (6), Anthony Rendon (20), Yunel Escobar (20), Chris Davis (7), Adam Eaton (20), Lorenzo Cain (16), David Peralta (20), Madison Bumgarner (7), Jordan Zimmerman (2), Johnny Cueto (13), Alex Wood (9), Marcus Stroman (20), Craig Kimbrel (4), David Robertson (8), Dexter Fowler (20), Hector Olivera (20), Alex Gordon (15), Josh Tomlin (20), Corey Dickerson (2). If I pick two guys from the same round I lose that round pick and the round after. My initial feeling is Rizzo, Cain, Bumgarner, and Stroman or Davis. What do you think is my best bet? Thanks for your help in advance.

    I don’t let myself think fantasy baseball until middle of feb…its finally here.

    What do you think of following potential trades;

    Aaron Sanchez for Wong.

    J Upton, Russel, Wong for Corey Seager and Carrasco.

    • JeF WiTh 1 F says:
      (link)

      @Matt: 1. Wong but more of a need type of trade…2. Upton side but again if you need pitching i could see going with Carrasco.

      • Matt says:
        (link)

        @JeF WiTh 1 F:
        Thanks Jef.

        How much of an upgrade is Wong over my current 2b, Walker?

        I would probably drop Walker in my 18 player keeper league if I get Wong.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Matt: what no MI? Walker has more power and based on batting order slots should produce more RBI’s. If this is an 18 team league with MI I couldn’t see not owning walker.

          • Matt says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH:
            It’s a 12 team, 18 keeper spots. No MI.

            I think i’m going to hold off on both.
            Seager has same if not better potential than Russel…and I read Grey’s pitching strategy earlier…i need to keep Carrasco.

        • JeF WiTh 1 F says:
          (link)

          @Matt: Wong may be in a bit of a platoon so i wouldnt make the deal based on wong…i like the deal because you get upton and Russel..try to flip wong for something else and keep walker.

    Grey, what is your thought on this trade offer. $260 Keeper league where cost of a player goes up $5 each year. I got offered Cespedes $25 for Carlos Martinez $15. We only start 9 hitters and 4 SP so value is good for both players. My hesitation is Mets lineup/ballpark and believe that Martinez is close to being an ace.

            With Archer/Abreu/Frazier to start, would you double up on pitching with Stras + Sev, or go something more like Stras + CI Hosmer ($14) / Blackmon ($20).

            Not many good hitters left, but underpriced Stras/Sev/Pineda/Darvish/Smyly are still out there…

  37. get johan off my balls says:
    (link)

    ok so im in a roto h2h mixed 10 team keeper league.
    We keep players based on round. 5 keepers but one has to be at least be a pitcher. currently my keepers are:

    stanton (1)
    machado (5)
    Rizzo (10)
    Klubber (15)
    Correa (22nd)

    i have the sixth overall pick. Since we can only keep players for max of 3 years there is some good players available in the draft pool.

    Trout, Harper, Mccutchen, Cabrera, should all go top 4. Not sure if Kershaw’s owner is keeping him as he is also a first round keeper and he drafts 8th overall. if hes available then im sure he would be gone by the sixth pick anyways.

    so hes my question. would you trade stanton for JD Martinez who would be a 9th rounder. The guy that wants stanton has the 9th overall pick and he doesnt like his options. . I am not sure of who everyone is keeping but i have a really good idea. I draft sixth overall but after the first 4 or 5 there is a slight drop off..

    Here are some of the options i believe will be available:
    encarnacion,
    Sale,
    Jup
    Cargo
    Adam Jones,
    Price,
    Cano,
    Posey

    I love stanton probably as much as you do, but in theory i would be trading him for JD and Edwin (since hes probably the person i leading towards drafting)
    i could always keep stanton and then hope to draft someone like JD in the second, adam jones, blackmon, gomez, Justin upton and Cargo should all be available.

    another option is to keep maikel franco in the 21st round and throw stanton back in the pool and hope he falls back to me.

    which do you prefer

    a) Trade Stanton for JD and have a first round pick
    b) Keep Stanton and draft an OF in the 2 round
    c) Keep Franco instead of Stanton and hope to draft stanton with my sixth overall pick

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take JD… Or Maikel and draft Stanton

    I’ve got some keeper decisions for a championship team. 12 team H2H, standard scoring, I can keep up to 5. Some are no-brainer choices but would appreciate your opinion.

    Rizzo,Encarnacion, Betts, Upton, Blackmon, Polanco, Cespedes, Sano, Cargo

    What 5 would you look to keep?

    Thanks!

      Rizzo, Edwin, Betts, Sano, Upton

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks, homie. I just realized that Sano only has DH eligibility in ESPN. Any odds that changes this year?

        Also, do you favor not keeping Polanco here because he should be easier to re-draft due to poor rankings through other ‘perts?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Sano will be an OF by mid April… Yeah you can redraft Polanco

          • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Would you consider moving Sano, Cespedes, and maybe another player that I wouldn’t keep for Trout? I feel like I could put together a package that is attractive enough to acquire him…Not sure this could happen, but may be worth exploring since he is on a bad team.

    Could you rank the following 6 players for FANTASY PURPOSES only given the league categories. Blake Snell, Anderson Espinoza, Lew Brinson, Andrew Benintendi. Victor Robles, and Jose DeLeon. Yes I believe these are the best six available in our draft as the minors are 280 players deep.

      You should ask Ralph… Beni, Brinson, Snell, Robles

    Grey – my world just got wrecked in my NFBC 15 team draft and hold (Draft Champions). I have Rizzo, Odor, Springer, Just Dongs Martinez, King Felix, Salazar, and Ken Giles through 7 rounds. I intended to take Franco or Longoria in the 8th, but they both just went 3 and 4 picks before me.

    My 8th pick is pick #114. It feels like it is too early to take Belt or Russell (ADPs 149 and 134). I’m thinking either Dickerson (Pence, Hanley, and Dickerson are left from your not-so-awesome OF tier – the next tier have ADPs a bit later) or Garrett Richards (I can get Rodon or Walker later, and Richard’s entire tier is left, but Darvish is risky with no waivers, and Pineda and Iglesias have later ADPs).

    Am I over thinking this and should just go Belt, or what do you think about Dickerson vs. Richards?

    Thanks man,
    Curtis

    where in ESPN do you go to rank your own players predraft? i have a draft that is only gonna give 30 seconds per pick, which is completely ridiculous (esp since we keep 9 players per year), so i better be VERY ready for this.

        @Grey: good thing is ESPN has an actual phone number you can call (unlike yahoo, who don’t respond to anything at all, nor have any way to communicate with any type of human)

        @Grey: wait, but don’t you yourself draft RCL’s (your own i mean) in ESPN? you don’t prerank your own players! wow.

          @Eli Man Penguin Boy: it’s completely obvious, it’s on team page just below team name.

    Same error as some of the others have been getting. Cleared cache and cookies. Had similar problems last year. It’s my favorite feature of Razzball every year, but could use a tune up.
