On Dancer! On Prancer! On–Oh, I didn’t hear you come in.  Welcome, reader! Grab some egg nog and brandy it up to the fire. You look festive.  I love that Rudolph tongue ring, though not as much as I love your Facebook photo with Santa while wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirt. That’s the great thing about Christmas, no matter what your interpretation is, it’s all about commercialism.  That’s unless you light the Munenori Kawasaki. The 2015 fantasy baseball rankings are not far away.  Right now, January Grey is throwing darts at a board to figure out where to rank Rusney Castillo. Exciting!  In the meantime, let’s look at the players who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2015 fantasy baseball season.  This took me far longer than it probably should’ve.  Can’t someone write me a program that sorts all the players by games played at a position?  Why do I need to go through every player on every roster?  It totally harshes my buzz.  I did this list of multi-position eligible players because I figured it would help for your 2015 fantasy baseball drafts.  I’m a giver, snitches!  Happy Holidays!  I only listed players that have multiple position eligibility of ten games or more played outside of their primary position.  Not FIVE games at a position, not six, definitely not seven. Ten games.  10, the Laurel & Hardy of numbers.  So this should cover Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, et al (not the Israeli airline).  Yes, Christmas came two days early this year.  Players with multiple position eligibility are listed once alphabetically under their primary position.  On a different post, I’ll make some comments about some of the players.  In the mean’s while, you make comments in these comments. Say that fast 117 times! Anyway, here’s all the players with multiple position eligibility for the 2015 fantasy baseball season and the positions they are eligible at:

      @gareth: gareth!!

  2. gareth says:

    I know you got burned last year by Ryan Zimmerman. But if playing 1st base helps him stay off the DL, that 1b/3b/of eligibility is pretty nice to have.

    Heath permitting of course.

      @gareth: He’ll still get hurt…doesn’t matter where he plays

      @gareth: Yeah, if he can stay healthy…

    • dem ribbies says:
      (link)

      @gareth: burnt here too. his shoulder would probably hold up longer @1B, but if memory serves, his 2 major injuries in 2014 (thumb and hammy) both occurred on the base paths. prob one of those 1/2 season guys regardless of position.

    • dem ribbies says:

      Grey, happy belated giftmas.

      In a $200 budget 5×5 (w/OPS) which 2 would you hold?
      * Votto $3
      * Rios $4
      * Pedroia $6
      * Myers $4

        You too, dem ribbies! Myers, Votto

  3. Nimrod says:

    Our league format starts out with only one position eligibility. For example, M. Morse may be 1st base eligible because that is where he is deemed to play even though he played more games in the outfield in 2014. This post helps a lot for drafting some flexibility for my draft and potential line-ups. Once a player gets to 10 games played at a position then he becomes eligible at the said position. Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you and the whole staff at Razzball.

    Keep 5: runs, obp, rbi, hr, sb position in draft does not have to be given up to keep a player…
    Lucroy
    Hanley
    Braun
    Cano
    M Brantley
    R Zimmerman
    Rizzo
    T Frazier
    JD Martinez
    Danny Santana
    Soler

    Thank you

    • Ralph says:
      (link)

      @Chris: You didn’t say the depth of the league, but assuming it is 10-12 teams, I would keep Cano, Hanley, Brantley, Rizzo, and Frazier.

      I guess you can make a case for Lucroy, Braun, or Soler, but I wouldn’t keep a catcher and Braun leaves little reason for confidence re a resurgence. You could definitely go for Soler’s upside, but Frazier was so good last year it is hard to throw that back.

      I’m not huge on position scarcity, but it is nice that this gets all the IF positions covered for you, which is nice.

        @Ralph: Thank you all

                @Grey: I’d totally keep Zimmerman

        • JeF With 1 F says:
          (link)

          @J-FOH: Yea to me it was a coin flip between hanley braun ..just figured braun would play more

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Yeah, it is a coin flip on those two… Hanley just has a bit more interesting position eligibility…

    Hi Grey;

    Asking for some advice on Who to keep in 15 player, keep forever 14 team keeper 6×6 ROTO League?
    (regular categories plus BB’s, and Holds)

    Bats include IF, Utility, and 4 OF’s;
    Arms are 6 SP and 3 RP’s.
    Bench = 10 players and 3 DL spots.
    Pick 15 From:
    Bats- F Freeman, J Kipnis, N Arenado, I Desmond, Goldy, T Frazier, A Gordon, Cargo, C Dickerson, S S Choo,
    Spares -JD Mart, Duda, Avisail Garcia,
    Pitchers – Jordan Zimm., Z Greinke, M Latos, C Carrasco, Fister, H Bailey, G Holland, Cischek, Melancon, G Perkins?
    Tough to whittle down to 15… Should I consider keeping JD over Choo? Carrasco over Fister/Latos? A. Garcia? Can T. Frazier do it again?

    Suggestions/discussion encouraged! Thanks!

    • Grey

    uh oh Miggy had exactly 10 games at 3rd eh? hmm didn’t factor in his 3rd base eligibility into possibly keeping him. is he a must keep at $40 over a $10 pence or lester.

    thanks for all the great work. happy holidays.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d keep Miggy… You too!

    Grey!

    All the best, man!

    Really gr8 research on this one. I think I agree that 1 ‘n’ Zimm is much less of an injury risk (therefore a gr8 chance to produce this year with 500+ ABs). Maybe he still qualifies at 3B in CBS leagues?

    All the best for the holidays!

    In my dynasty league..i won last year and am thinking about trading Miggy before this season…Im feeling like hes still really good but his best days are behind him….all depends on what i can get but i think i can get a nice package for him….I have Arenado Frazier and Goldy…so it wont hurt me position wise to move him….You think hes a hold or sell him before he comes down even more.

    You told me Dickerson over B ham for my last keeper in a previous post. Could you expand a little. I have a ton of power in my other keepers and I also thought you were really high on B ham last year. Bham cooled for you? Or Dickerson that good? I love the rockies too just don’t know if i trust Dickerson.

        @Grey: i used you to justify my “highness” on b ham. Haha. Damn. Didn’t you write about him as your first rookie last year. Then emphasize the fact that trout and myers had those honors before him. the two. You have me doubting my b ham and giancarlo combo.

My buddy used to live in Bay Point and when I would have to go down the hill to the McDonalds for hangover breakfast it was night and day.

            It’s always interesting to see how certain players are valued though. Marte at 71? Soler at 152? I hope that those slots hold up. Love those values. I like your Carrasco, Gattis, and McHugh picks too. Really solid value with those players.

    Hey Grey, thanks again for all the advice this year: 2 Firsts, 1 Second, and 1 Seventh. Need some advice with keepers for 1 team – 6×6 (Standard Hitting plus OPS, SVs, K, ERA, Whip, K/9, BB/9). Keep 4 players, can keep players forever and must keep at least 1 pitcher. (1C, RF, CF, LF, 1 Util)

    Possible Keepers:
    HItters: Anthony Rizzo, Jorge Soler, Brandon Moss, Jay Bruce, Alcides Escobar, Drew Stubbs, and Josh Harrison.
    Pitchers: Matt Harvey, Corey Kluber, Michael Fiers, Alex Cobb, and Carlos Carrasco

    I’m leaning towards Rizzo, Soler, Harvey, and Kluber

    Merry Christmas big man, can’t wait for this year. I’ve got Arismendy on my minor league squad, you think he will be a starting 2b this year? That would be huge to already have my 2b filled before the draft. Also, what do you make of Crush Davis being allowed to take adderall this year? I’ve played sports on adderall and that shit makes sports easier, I think he could have a bounce back year. Thanks.

    • TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
      (link)

      Starting 2b for fantasy, its a 12 team keeper league and I’m keeping Brantley, Trout and Cutch so my OF is filled. Arismendy would probably played 2nd for me since it’s a tough position to fill.

      • goodfold2 says:

        @Grey: i think they just have to have a legal script, same as any other allowance for drugs anywhere else. If/when we get pulled over we’ll be in trouble having adderall too without script (it goes from legal to a felony without).

    Merry Christmas Grey…quick question for ya regarding which 4 players to keep. I finished 2nd in my 12 team H2H 5×5 league last year. I can only keep 4 players, and each player costs you the slot/ round they were drafted in the previous year, if the player was undrafted they are slotted in the last rounds of a 26 round draft. I’ve narrowed down my current choices to the following players, with the round they were drafted in parenthesis :

    G.Stanton(2nd)
    F.Freeman(8th)
    Y. Ventura(18th)
    G. Springer(20th)
    T.Frazier(22nd)
    C. Kluber(23rd)
    D. Gordon(24th)
    M. Betts(undrafted)
    J.Soler(undrafted)

    I have excluded Cano(1st) and Ellsbury(4th) due to their high round selection, but maybe I’m wrong to do so. I was leaning towards Stanton, Kluber, Springer and Frazier based on value vs draft slot. But Im curious to see if you’d go with a different 4 and if so why? Thanks in advance!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Merry Xmas! Stanton, Kluber, Springer and Frazier works for me…. You have a lot of great choices though…

      • Eric Bateman says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks for the reply and I know… Freeman, Betts and Soler are the ones I’m struggling with the most. But Stanton and Kluber are no brainers to me. I still want to believe the Springer hype and Frazier seemed like better value in round 23 than Freman in round 8.

            @Grey: seriously freeze me a piece. I love a good lasagna and with you being from Jersey I can only assume.

            I watched that Pauly Shore flick on Showtime the other day and it was pretty good. Really sad, but not in the way you think it would be. You know he is the celebrity endorsement for SAGNOF.

            @Grey: looked like a hard one to pull off as a film. It was a cable watch for me and I will probably like it because you don’t.

              Crazy hard to pull off… There were some amazing parts, but the whole was kinda messy…

      Nice! Where did you cook them? I got one of those pizza ovens from Williams Sonoma… It cooks it at about 600 degrees… Pretty solid for homemade…
