Well, it’s that time of year again. What time is that you ask? I’ll tell you. It’s the approximately ten days or so that most of you have interest in me. I had someone at my front door this afternoon that I absolutely did not recognize. I was certain it was another solar panel douche. For the record, not all solar panel company employees are douches. Just the ones that knock on my door and don’t leave when I say “no thank you” within the first thirty seconds. Dude rang my bell today and I looked at my Ring camera and was like “not another one”. At first I said to my daughter that I was going to go out there and pretend like I was “all in” for solar panels and then at the end change my mind after accusing him of farting. And we were going to record the whole thing on the Ring cam. Well as luck would have it, it wasn’t a solar panel douche. It was Razzball commenter asking me about my points league spreadsheet. That’s when I pretended that I didn’t speak English and shut the door. None of this actually happened, and I would never do that to a fellow Razzball-lite.
Here’s the deal. I know I say this every year, but it’s true every year. The spreadsheet is a ton of work to create. Unfortunately, I just haven’t had the time. If it’s any consolation, I am working on it. I just don’t have an ETA. I know that sucks with drafts rapidly approaching. Step one of making the spreadsheet is always generating my own projections. Although I don’t call them projections, I prefer guesstimations. My process is simple, in theory at least. First I generate my own guesstimations. Then I download about ten reliable guesstimations. Then I average them all with mine. Then I average the average with mine again, giving more weight to my guesstimations. This is as far as I’ve gotten, but I want to share them with you today.
I need your help. Please review my guesstimations and look for things that just don’t seem right. Missing players. Players that should be missing. Hopefully, Edwin Diaz has been removed. This process takes time, but with your help, I can speed things up. Today’s spreadsheet will allow you to enter your league’s scoring system. You will have to manually re-sort each position worksheet after doing so.
After falling just short last year, Will Smith is lining up to be the top catcher in points leagues, slapping J.T. Realmuto off his throne.
Freddie Freeman and Vlad Jr. are going to battle it out for the top spot. Wow, how about that bold prediction? Vinnie Pasquantino sitting at number six. Gotta like his ADP. Just saying.
Thanks to a thumb injury Jose Altuve will not be able to compete in the upcoming MLB hitchhiking tournament. For some reason, this reminds me of the classic movie The Great O’Grady. Thanks to that same thumb issues, Marcus Semien is now the prime candidate to take lead 2B in points. I’ve got Tommy Edman in the two spot. Interesting.
No one even challenges Jose Ramirez. Next. Ok, fine. I’ll write a little more. Take Yandy Diaz and call it a day.
This is Trea Turner‘s job to lose, but I like me some Corey Seager. I said the same thing last year, so maybe I was a year off. Tommy Edman === Bobby Witt Jr. Do with that what you will.
