A mere year ago this was a top 400 for fantasy baseball.  A mere few years ago before those years ago, this was a top 300 for fantasy baseball.  Before that, it was 16 AD and I was rolling with Jesus to this deli that had great matzoh ball soup.  In a few years from now, this is going to be a top 10,000 and I’m going to be ranking Mike Trout Jr. Jr. Jr. the 15th. Today, in this year, sixteen after twenty, comes the top 500 for 2016 fantasy baseball.  Flippin’, right?  Or as I like to call it, from Mike Trout A to chimpanzee.  Actually, I don’t like to call it that.  So, this post isn’t meant to send shockwaves through your system.  The pipe cleaner that the doctor uses to get the clogged Cheeto out of your artery is meant for that.  This is simply to give you an idea of where guys are ranked in relation to other positions.  I.e., you know I like Jean Segura better than Ketel Marte, according to the top 20 shortstops, but do I like Segura better than Lucas Duda?  Okay, it’s not that simply.  You’ll notice towards the last top hundred there’s a ton of pitchers clumped together and a ton of outfielders.  I might be the only fantasy baseball ‘pert to tell you this, but it doesn’t matter where, say, Yangervis Solarte is ranked vs. Rick Porcello.  If you need a pitcher, Solarte isn’t going to help you.  He can be ranked 75 spots in front of Porcello and it doesn’t matter.  That’s why I have the 2016 fantasy baseball rankings broken down by positions.  If you need a 2nd baseman, where Scooter Gennett is vs. Kolten Wong matters, but where Scooter vs. Jay Bruce really doesn’t matter.  Also, there’s no comments about players, which you really should know prior to drafting.  In other words, Mark Trumbo might be in the early 100s overall, but am I drafting him?  Well, you’d know if you read the top 20 1st basemen.  There’s also a top 100 for 2016 fantasy baseball to help you.  Along shortly will be a Fantasy Baseball War Room and a pitchers pairing tool.  Anyway, here’s the top 500 for 2016 fantasy baseball:

Please, blog, may I have some more?
