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 2020 fantasy baseball rankings are not far away. Right now, January Grey is throwing darts at a board to figure out where to rank Shohei Ohtani, the hitter vs. Shohei Ohtani, the pitcher. Maybe I should use two dart boards. Hmm…In the meantime, let’s look at the players who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2020 fantasy baseball season. I did this list of multi-position eligible players because I figured it would help for your 2020 fantasy baseball drafts. I’m a giver, snitches! Happy Holidays! I only listed players that have multiple position eligibility of five games or more started outside of their primary position. Not four games at a position, not three, definitely not two. Five games started. If they played eight games somewhere but only started one, they are not listed. 5, the Road Runner of numbers. So this should cover Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, et al (not the Israeli airline). Players with multiple position eligibility are listed once alphabetically under their primary position. Games played are in parenthesis. One big take away is Jonathan Villar started in, like, 200 games. That can’t be right. Oh, I know, they’re listed if they had 5 or more games started, but I noted games played in parenthesis, so Villar must’ve switched positions three times per game or played two positions at once because the Orioles only had seven fielders plus a pitcher. Don’t know, don’t care. Players are listed by Games Started, and Games Played are noted. It’s not confusing at all! 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 2020 fantasy baseball season and the positions they are eligible at:

CLE traded kluber for almost nothing (delino and clase, clase appears to be getting leverage right away at RR depth charts), WTF is going on there? unless they think he’s just broken or something. but even then how do you leave that deal getting only that.
and this can’t be right, but NYY intend to get lucky again on urshela, playing him OVER andujar?! this could just be an early depthcharts thing.
That seems like an early depth charts thing
Even if he was broken, they didn’t get enough
exactly, his value should be a good deal higher than that with 2 years left on contract. plesac/civale ain’t making up what he is over those 2 years, and even if one of them did that they should be getting more for him right now.
What are your thoughts on this deal:
I give up: Justin Turner ($33), I have Vlad jr. and Jose ramirez for third, Craig Kimbrel ($28) and Dillon Peters ($6)
I get: Nomar Mazara ($28), Daniel Hudson ($6), Raisel Iglesias ($39) and $10 in salary.
Should I accept it?
Out of $260? I don’t love it
no out of $1300 salary cap
since it has a $1300 salary cap, what are your thoughts on the deal?
Oh, then that Raisel deal is decent
ok im signing off on the deal. Merry Christmas Grey.
Merry Christmas, Scott!
Merry Christmas to all the Razzball razzballers.
Garrett Hampson would be super valuable with three position qualifications if, you know, the Rockies would actually play their young talent more than twice a week for two innings.
Dominic Smith can rake, but his OF defense is like watching the Statue of David shag fly balls. And I’m pretty sure he will not overtake his main competition at his natural 1B position for the Mets. They have this polar bear with forearms bigger than my thighs hitting the planes flying overhead with his batted balls.
Haha, Marry Christmas!
JD Davis all the way!
Agree. JD Davis is a super duper looper snooper sleeper. Too bad he’ll be kept in my NL-only auction league.
Dom Smith is trade bait USA. Some team will be happy to get him. I have him for a $1 to keep. Can you say Miami Marlins? Well, can I write it? I can’t. Or did I just write it?
Haha, you did!
Would you rather have Kimbrel or Raisel Iglesias?
so trade Kimbrel for Raisel?
Thanks Grey! Merry Christmas!
Thanks for all the wisdom you have given us in 2019 and I look forward to “much more” in 2020 .
With your insights I’ve gotten, Albomso, Alvarez, Mercado, Robles, Eloy, Robert, & Bichette for a combined $38 to go into the draft.
Have a great holiday and continue the fine work that you do!!!!!
No problem! That’s a solid core for $38! Have a great holiday too!

I really like this team, think your pitching could be excellent and hitting looks balanced on speed and power, but, as you know, a bit light on AVG
Thanks. Its winner take all, and not part of overall pool, just a potential $1700 entry to the ME. I’ll take that chance. But, yeah, barring any injuries my team looks like it as good as any others in the league.
I like the upside of this team a lot too
Thats a really good team Dave D!
You think Kela closes in Pittsburgh?
Thanks, MP! Yes on Kela.
Considering this list, who do you think is very valuable, J. McNeil or E Suarez in a points league?
Thanks Grey, as everyone said above, thanks for all you provide. Happy holidays, Chag Sameach, and Happy New Year! COME BACK BASEBALL!!!
Happy holidays! And, yes, baseball return… Thank you!
I learned a lot this year on survivor.
Merry Christmas brother.
Still waiting for a real copy of the most anticipated movie this decade.
Survivor made me a better person, now I hope never to talk of that season again… Merry Christmas, Grimey! Uncut Gems?
Do you think giving up Luis Urias, Garrett Hampson and Reynaldo Lopez for Zack Wheeler fair or is it too much? Happy Holidays buddy
Happy Holidays, Scott!
Don’t love it for you
Let me explain it another way. It is the three team deal i told you about. Team A wants to do this: Trade Lucchessi, Urias, Hampson and Lopez to Team B for Gio Gonzalez and Zach Wheeler. Then Team A trades Wheeler and Raisel Iglesias to me for Darvish and Justin Turner. What are your thoughts for Team A, B and then myself regarding the deal?
I prefer Darvish
u prefer darvish over Wheeler?
ok I guess I will look elsewhere for a deal
What do you think of trading Alex Young and getting Avasil Garcia now with MIL?
That works for me

I can ask if he is interested
Thanks Grey, this is such a useful tool for quick reference come draft prep season!
My dumb CBS AL-only league has Nick Solak as DH only, since he didn’t play more than 20 games anywhere in the field… now he’s gonna be clogging that spot in my lineup. Still think he’s worth keeping on the cheap? Here’s my projected draft day lineup…
1B Nate Lowe $10
2B Brandon Lowe $1
3B Rafael Devers $21
SS Marcus Semien $8
OF Aaron Judge $37
OF Eddie Rosario $17
OF Ramon Laureano $18
DH Nick Solak $9
Got no pitchers worth keeping. Other hitter options are Mookie ($56), Austin Hays ($8), Sean Murphy ($4)…
Forgot I have MI and CI spots too
You don’t really have anyone else to keep and his price isn’t bad, so I’d keep him
Thanks Grey! Looking forward to rankings—— im curious how you view David Fletcher
Think he’s fine for empty average and not much else…
Runs, baby! Hes a two category guy not just one, hehe..
Haha, if he’s hitting anywhere in the top half of the lineup
For his/my/your sake I sure hope so. Twelve bags would be a nice bonus as well if we’re getting a little greedy.
If I got 12 steals from him, I’d say he’d need to steal about 20 bags for me to have him in my lineup fro 12 of them
Here’s to a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic Holiday Season to all razzball writers, commentators, readers and fans, with a chance for so much more!
Thanks, MP! Merry Christmas to you too!
very cool, Merry Christmas to you and yours too bro
Thanks Grey, for this list and all your insight throughout the year.
Scratch that, I’m a moron
No Ketel Marte’?
Thank you for your many gifts throughout the year Santa Grey. May all Razzball readers get what they hope for no matter what holiday they are celebrating…. with a chance for much more!
Me, I’m hoping for new sweatpants . The ones I’m wearing are pretty stained.
Haha, you’d think in Sweatpants Nation it would be a land of many sweatpantses so you’d have plenty to choose from…
Have a great one!
Haha. Yeah, you’d think but now you’re just be logical.. and sanitary.
Well, very thorough work, Grey. The one number that stood out to me as al all-in-on-McMahon is that he had 19 GP at 1B so he was one shy of eligibility this year in NFBC. That doesn’t hurt his value in DC so much, but is kind of a pain in regular format. I’m hoping he gets ten starts there quickly just in case.
Thanks! That would be nice boost, but 2B is pretty solid
Well, I’m 3/3 on drafting McMahon, Civale, Kopech so far. Ive got several 2/3. Clearly I like those guys. Im real confident in the first two. Kopech is a little iffy with Keuch and Gio signings if he’s not dominant in spring. I think he’ll force the issue if he’s back to 100% though.
Think there might be something to Kopech bc the White Sox are going for it and Kopech could be up and contributing quickly
Hopefully I get something more like 150IP 12-6, 170K, 3.60/1.25. That would probably be a near best case scenario unless he goes all Buehler on us or something crazy.
Wouldn’t count on anything near that, but maybe, if you get super lucky
