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.  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 2016 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 2016 fantasy baseball season.  The biggest surprise from this list?  Sean Rodriguez played how many games at 1st base?  Hayzeus Cristo!  I did this list of multi-position eligible players because I figured it would help for your 2016 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 a day early this year.  Players with multiple position eligibility are listed once alphabetically under their primary position.  This is the only time a year I do anything alphabetically, so I might’ve confused some letters.  Is G or H first?  Who knows, and, better yet, who cares?  Wow, someone’s got the Grinchies, must be the spiked egg nog talking.  Anyway, here’s all the players with multiple position eligibility for the 2016 fantasy baseball season and the positions they are eligible at:

What do you think is fair trade value for chapman? In other words who should I give up to get him? He asked for either Trout or Altuve and I turned him down immediately

ok, now with this roster and 42.273 mil left for at least 6 spots (up to 9 if i drop leone/urena and minor alvarez)
C d’arnaud
CI beltre (probably, i still have to match whatever offer he gets or take the pick(s) by the 3rd)
CI smoak
MI segura
MI alcides
OF leonys
OF a-jax (man i should’ve traded him a couple of months back when i had an offer, now he has no team and still costs 6.4)
OF altherr
util e.rosario
BN drury
SP liriano, z.davies, quintana, sale
RP melancon, fien, rj alvarez, leone, urena (these last 3 current listed in minors, but i can’t minor the last 2)
and 6 more BN spots to fill (at least 2 SP needed at some point).
Trying to see if bidding on any restricted FA makes sense (and up to how much)
guys that could be worth it
CI – plouffe, valencia, aroid (he’ll bost too much though)
MI – walker, h.kendrick
OF – fowler, souza
SP – chen, lackey, miley, erasmo, peavy, tomlin, kazmir, hammel
RP – a.miller (he’ll cost too much though), nate jones, joe smith, romo, benoit

The much bigger list of just straight free agents includes (we’ll bid on these post draft, in FEB, i’m just showing these for what will be left if i get none of the restricted guys.
CI – colabello, yunel, yogt, dan murphy, c.hernandez, espinosa, howard, napoli, matt duffy, marwin, v-mart, pearce, sandoval, laroche
MI – j-honney, alexei ram, e.escobar (MIN), kike, kelby tom, giovatella, villar
OF – werth, maybin, beltran, byrd, blanco, aokidoki, pham, bj upton (starting now again, but for how long)
SP – fatolo, b.anderson, koehler, bolsinger, shoemaker, hellickson, erv santana, godley, c.anderson, j.chavez, roark, sabbathia
RP – tons of good names here
Looking like i might want bid on some SP, or anybody else?

@Grey: right, last year, about 11 months ago i bid on and won c.anderson and chavez for cheap, neither were technically starters at the time. the only list i need to worry about between now and jan 1st is the top list, the restricted FA, those are being bid on right now. the bottom list doesn’t apply till post draft, those are just standard FA, winning bid would win them, nobody has rights to them.

@goodfold2: all of sale/liriano/quintana’s contracts expire after this year, so i don’t want to give long term deal to somebody that doesn’t have future value, so most of that list of SP would be one year deals from me if any.

@Grey: walker could play at util or backup. what’s biggest bid for those sound about like, i’ll assume beltre gets bid up to around 8-10 but not much more, and if much more i can just take the pick rather than pay near the 18 of last year. this would leave around 32 mil for 6-8 spots total left. probably will have to give werth some sort of action as i need homers pretty badly (not the 12 he got from me last year that i’m still paying 6 of now)

@Grey: we play 2 CI, 2 MI, 3 OF, 1 util, 1 C, don’t need 2B in particular. if drury gets play i’d have him of course, and i could put him down if he’s not up also. so right now i’ll assume i match beltre’s bid (probably only 7-11 or so million, not the 18 he made before), leaving me with 31-35 million to make somewhere in the 6-10 players to add, with around 2-3 of those being SP. The difference of 6-10 would have to do with if i drop leone/urena and/or put down rj alvarez/drury. if beltre’s price gets too high i could take the pick, so at most 11 players would be added using 42.848 mil. If i don’t keep beltre i’d have to grab a CI from the 2nd list
CI – colabello, yunel, yogt, dan murphy, c.hernandez, espinosa, howard, napoli, matt duffy, marwin, v-mart, pearce, sandoval, laroche

in FEB when regular FA bidding goes on.

@Grey: of that list i’m guessing duffy gets biggest contract (if no beltre), for some years, but really he doesn’t hit that many homers either. i need homers with that lineup for sure. werth looms (my god if he doesn’t produce again, gets hurt again i’ll really wanna giloolly him) as possible need. pham probably a good longer term investment (cheaply).

how much you thinking is biggest bid i should make on kaz/lackey/chen/hammel. i’ll go from the biggest (kaz) downward

hey Grey, after learning that in hockey Fantrax will add correct positions (say a guy came up in minors/prospect at position X but in NHL plays position Y) and getting them in the middle of the night to add 3 players to the baseball database from Mike’s lists, i thought, wow, this company is so good it’s as if it’s run by Grey. So, do you run/own Fantrax?

@Grey: 2 days before it was found!! Ahh, she was stabbed, raped, throat cut in the bedroom, where’s the blood?? Shot in the garage and still no blood! Key and bullet weren’t found until a week later after so many searches. The car found by the only searcher with a camera and she found it immediately in that whole huge lot. Why is their blood and hair in the car anyways if she was killed inside and dragged into the backyard to be burned? The tampered blood vial!!! There is something with the brother and ex boyfriend, they are so so shady. The deleted voicemails?!…all that and the worst was the police forcing that obviously false confession from the nephew. So sick.

Anyone know what happened to Bryant’s eligibility in the OF ( 19 games)? At season’s end he had both 3B and OF. I know this for reasonable certainty, of course as a Bryant owner I keep tabs on important features such as that. MLB must have reviewed the records and taken one game back, hence the 19 games in the OF instead of 20. Did anyone else notice this?

I like to target Catcher eligibles who will primarily play other positions. Only Schwarber is listed here, but he’ll be long gone by the time I’m comfortable picking him. The only other one I can think of is Jaso, who Pirates just signed to play 1st on the long side of a platoon. Is there anyone else who fits this category?

Can you go into how position eligibility works?

So Schwarber will be catcher eligible all year next year even if he doesn’t take a single pitch behind home plate correct?

Also, any player who hits 10 games at a position will then gain whatever eligibility, correct?

I didn’t see you rank sano, but probably because he only played 3b, so my assumption is he has 3b eligibility next year? Trying to decide if I want to keep him or not.

Happy holidays. I’ll put some extra spice in my egg naug

finally caught up with all baseball posts, adding all those football/hockey leagues and comishing some has eaten the crap out of time. tag time tomorrow in 30 man roto (but done with divisions like real life, we have overall standings but you make playoffs in how you do in your division/conference) 6×6 with holds/OPS added. 25 active roster and 25 minor slots (goes up to 30 this year, which i believe will cap it, draft starts jan 5th). 100 million budgets. Assume all contracts are minimum (.4 million) and this year ending contract unless noted. 7 BN spots, usually i find it’s optimal to have 2-3 for hitters rest for SP to make up to 6 SP or so total, and also have 6 RP that start every day (unless i have more than 3 SP go at same time).
C – D’Arnaud (2017)
CI – Drury (2019)
CI – Smoak 1.347 mil
MI – Segura 6.4 mil
MI –
OF – A-Jax 6.4 mil
OF – Altherr (2019)
OF – Leonys 3.1
UT – E.Rosario (2019), no longer counts as MI anymore.
SP – Sale 6.425
SP – Liriano 11.5
SP – Quintana 6.4
RP – Melancon 6.421
RP – Fien
RP – Leone 1.15 (2017)
P Z.Davies (2019)
P R.J. Alvarez (2019)
P Urena (2018)
So i need about 2 more SP at least. 3 solid or better ones.
The kinds of tags we get are one Restricted tag in which i get to match the highest bid or get a draft pick(s) depending on size of contract (last year got screwed by matching Werth for 12 mil per for two years, three days later he just happens to mention he’s injured and needs shoulder surgery, ruining at least 2/3 of 2015 for himself and me, still on hook for 6 mil of that now); also one Franchise tag in which i pay exactly what a guy makes in real life. Also a third tag, which can be of either type. Depth charts this early are notoriously worthless of course, but Drury/Alvarez/Leone would be in minors according to them. I could put both of the first two into minors, but i’d have to cut a prospect to do it (i have some weak ones that i could do this with). Leone can’t be put down, i overpaid for him slightly and if i want to cut him i’d be on hook for half of 1.15 for each of this year and next (or all of 1.15 this year). He was awesome in 2014 however. Options for tags are
1. beltre (16 million, or very much likely cheaper if i restrict, and if his hand thing is fine he’d be much better than in 2015)
2. alcides (5.25, or ? if i restrict)
3. segura (franchising would likely make him cheaper than 6.4, but it’s unknown at this point too)
4. a-jax (since he has no team and made 7.7 last year it’s hard to tell, but if he gets a job and starts restricting him now would very likely save me money, franchising probably awful idea, could cost more)
5. uribe (made 6.5 last year in real life, no team, likely non starter, restricting would be cheap)
6. coghlan (was big value last year and MI/OF, but no role now)
7. chirinos
8. furbush/liam hendriks (would be cheap no matter which, hendriks really sick FIP of 2.15, currently slotted as 7th inning man at OAK, furbush about same role)
9. c.anderson/j.chavez (both would be cheap either tag, BUT no worthwhile role really yet)
10. ERV santana (way too expensive to franchise at 13.5 million)

Sounding about like restricting Beltre (hoping it costs less than 10 or maybe just take a pick for full rebuild), franchising Alcides for 5.5, and then an unknown third (franchising and hoping if segura is only slightly above his last year .534 real life money?)?
Ah the christmas tag rush to start our 2016 fantasy season. so GD early this league goes, and then we do nearly nothing important when normal leagues do all their important preseason stuff. it’s annoying, as most prospect stuff isn’t even out yet (Mike is 1/2 way through his prospect lists, ahead of many other sources)

@Grey: ok, so it comes down to whether or not saving nearly 4 million (which is exactly the average price of a player, 100 mil for 25 players) or so is better than grabbing a cheap extra player like hendriks (made around half mil last year, raise is probably near 2.5 or so though). whole pt of that would only be if we are wrong about segura and he’ll actually make more than 6.4, or just to grab a useful bullpen guy for pretty cheap. 7th inning or better players are quite useful in this league, not so easy to obtain like even in 16-20 team leagues.

@goodfold2: nevermind, i just found our our rule is that an arb player gets paid his last year money, so i save 6 million for SURE franchising him. that’s solid.

@Grey: with 6 million i can grab anywhere from 2-5 IF i either guess right or those depth charts now are more valid than not. i’ve found very cheap gems simply from only say 2 other owners bidding anything on them. they just can’t have high holds totals or be established names already, those ones go for bigger money, even if in fact they aren’t very good (think joba types)

@Grey: of course of those “solid” bullpen grabs i thought 1 year ago leone at 3 years at 1.15 was smart. it appeared to be at the time.

Thanks. What’s the best way to find this list in the future?
I think Bryant is the most intriguing name on the list. In an 5 outfielder league, is he a #1 or #2 outfielder?
Merry Christmas.

@Packers: seems like it could be listed in “tools” but i don’t think they’ve done that in previous years yet.
