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 2021 fantasy baseball rankings are not far away. Right now, January Grey is throwing darts at a board to figure out where to rank Randy Arozarena: rookie, customer of Big Bossman’s Bail Bonds, and first ballot Hall of Famer — a triple threat! In the meantime, let’s look at the players who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2021 fantasy baseball season. I did this list of multi-position eligible players because I figured it would help for your 2021 fantasy baseball drafts. I’m a giver, snitches! Happy Holidays! Seriously, in a year as crazy as 2020, take a moment and thank those you truly love: Me.
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 this post is going to be shorter than all previous years because — surprise! — it’s harder to play multiple games at multiple positions when there’s only 60 games. Also, somehow Whit Merrifield played 78 of a possible 60 games. How? Don’t know, don’t care! Maybe he just loves playing the field so much that he went out there and played the field after the season was over. Just call him Whit Merrifielder. 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. Be well, be safe. Anyway, here’s all the players with multiple position eligibility for the 2021 fantasy baseball season and the positions they are eligible at:

Tiger Williams was a favorite of mine as well. He played junior in my hometown. Looked forward to Saturday nights (back when hockey wasn’t on TV every day) when we always got to see the Leafs and Tiger got to play with Darryl Sittler and Lanny McDonald
And the gifts just keep’on comin’!~ Thanks G-Man, Merry Christmas
Appreciate you, Smitty! Merry Christmas!
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and a Happy Feativus!! Thank you for letting us all live our lives as Hanukkah/Christmas/Festivus day every single day of the year with your content. It’s truly invaluable and a gift.
Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!!
Appreciate that! Have a great holiday, Charlie!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Grey, the whole staff and Razzball nation.
Back at cha, packers2018!
Baseball news on Christmas Eve – Josh Bell to the Nats for two minor league pitchers. Pittsburgh seems to be trying to lose!
Pirates have been trying to lose since 1979
Well, maybe 1992, but still
With both Cincy and Pitt in tank mode, only helps my Cubbies
Wish the Cubbies were more exciting for fantasy tho
Agreed on that. They don’t have many being drafted in the top 100 (Darvish 17ish, Javy 70ish, Rizzo 90ish). Bryant’s all the way down in the 130s at the moment.
Josh Bell to Nationals for 2 Minor league pitchers…., interesting…, Happy Holidays !!!
Anything that gets him out of Pittsburgh, I guess
Sounds like 2021 will be an odd year. I got him in the 11th round. 3 years older, I guess I can wait until round 16 or so.
Might be a steal that late
Curious about those deep, no-waiver leagues you guys are always discussing. Is there also no trading?
The $10 leagues? Yeah, there’s no waivers and no changing your lineup — It’s Best Ball, the computer puts in your best lineup
It sounds like he’s referring to NFBC DCs.
Ah, well, same with no waivers, but those leagues you have to set your lineup and they cost $150
Obviously higher prize payouts
Yeah, I was just curious. I would never enter one. I haven’t played for 2 seasons, so my lack of preparedness will make even shallow leagues a challenge.
Well, youre reading a fantasy baseball site in December. Thats not your typical casual FBB player so…
Amen, Dave D
I bet you’d jump back in and do fine
BTW, the Tigers seem nuts to give Urine-ah $3.25m. I think a minor league deal with an invite to spring training would have been more than adequate.
I was just thinking similar to DBacks giving Merrill Kelly 4.25 mill
I checked my 1 good team from 2018. I got 12 wins/215 K/2.26 ERA from a Trevor Bauer. Is he still any good?
Only in odd years…
Any thought sites might reduce eligibility requirements due to the 60-game schedule?
Honestly, I think it would be too much work for them — think about how Yahoo doesn’t even change obviously incorrect eligibility for one player
*when it’s wrong
Yeah, that makes sense. HAPPY AMERICAN CHRISTMAS!!!
Thanks, Vin! Happy Canadian Thursday to you!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from across the big pond! Thank you so much for all you do for us fantasy baseball fanatics. No-one does it better!
Appreciate it! Merry Christmas!
Ovechkin, MacKinnon, Draisaitl or McDavid?
What language is this?
I was curious and it turns out this is hockey language — Alex says he returns on Monday with rankings for 2021
Nice. I just wanted to throw a curveball. You got a foul tip at least. NHL officially announced schedule and return to play. The biggest part is there is an all-Canada division.
Really? Wow, I honestly didn’t know there were enough Canadian teams for a whole division — I haven’t paid attention to hockey since 94 Sega tho
Ha! Yeah, there are 7 Canadian teams. I grew up going to lots of Kings games back when they played in Inglewood. The good ole days indeed. There is good minor league hockey here I will take the kids to if enough normalcy ever returns. Its way better in person.
I went to one of the best hockey colleges — BU — was one of three hockey games I’ve been to in my life, I do remember thinking hockey in person is a lot more fun than you think it’s gonna be
Back when it was more violent it was incredible. Its still good but in the pro games there would be some real good bouts. Lots of taunting. Some guys you just knew were going to tussle. It was more raw.
I remember Tie Domi (sp?)
Yeah, he was something. Dale Hunter, Bob Probert, McSorely. Tiger Williams was my fave: not a real big guy but psycho. A total menace. He could score too. He had 30 goals and 300 penalty minutes a few times. When he played for the Kings (before Gretzky) all the fans cheered and everyone paid attention. The whole building was energized.
How did Mike Grier do in the NHL? He was at school when I was there
Like the second he stepped on the ice. You knew something exciting was about to happen.
He was solid. Played for Edmonton. He had a pretty decent career. Not a star but very respectable.
Gotcha, he was the BMOC for a few years
Great POS eligibility for ’21 report! Copied and pasted for next year’s draft!
a. Merry XLax. Don’t eat too much. We’re having cod moussaka (cod and potatoes roasted in the oven with a garlic+parsley+olive oil+sea salt mixture poured over it before, so it’s a layer of potatoes, a layer of cod filet, that garlic mixture, than more potatoes and fish on the top, something like that. It’s divided up 4 ways and every gets something to eat) today. Tomorrow it’s roasted rabbit, sorry it’s rabbit season.
b. MLB quote of the day for December 24, 2020
1. Victor Cruz, born December 24, 1957
‘Yo soy como el caballo negro, nunca olvide su capacidad.’
Victor Cruz (Spoken directly to his daughter, received via email)
2. Kurt Ojala, born December 24, 1968
‘It’s good to have a combination of youth and experience. I look around this clubhouse (1997 Florida Marlins) and see a lot of guys – [Jim) Eisenreich, [Darren) Daulton, [Bobby) Bonilla – guys that know what it takes to win with a game on the line. For a team to be successful, there’s no substitute for experience.’
Kurt Ojala in The Sun Sentinel (David O’Brien, 08/18/1997, Eight-year Wait Ends For Ojala, Source)
3. Johnny Oates, died December 24, 2004
‘The biggest thrill was that I was able to put on a major league uniform for thirty years and to know the players I played with and against. I often have said that my biggest disappointment was that I didn’t enjoy it more while I was doing it. I should have enjoyed it more. I had a career that many wanted to have, but I let too many things bother me.’
Johnny Oates in the Baptist Standard (Toby Druin, 09/03/2001)
A. What, are you Italian eating fish today? It’s rabbit-eating season, last month was rabbit hunting season, so it adds up…Have a good one, Ante!
B. Lot of introspection from Johnny Oates
Boning up for Marx brothers quotes. I’ll start ’em up March 1, 2021. These quotes are getting too somber though this year is SUPER somber.
Super somber, but it’s time for equal moments of reflection and cheer and egg nog
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,Grey, to you,your family and everyone at Razzball. You have made 2020 a better place for us all with your informative and entertaining writings. You are the best in the business. Let’s hope 2021 brings us more laughs and we can all say we made it through to 2020 and the China plague.
Appreciate it! Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, DonnieB!
Always a most useful post. Thanks Grey and happy happy holidays to you and the Razzball fam! Daily reading has never been more valuable. Rationalizing the last wackadoo season is going to be some challenge! Really looking forward to January Grey’s take and projections! Stay well all!
Thanks, zombie! Happy holidays!
You’re the man, Grey! Thank you and the Razzball guys (and maybe 5 girls) for all you do throughout the year. Your articles give me something to look forward to even during the winter.
Appreciate, Charlie! All the best!
