Referencing Wikipedia liberally here: Trey Lipscomb, a very famous barber in the 1840s who could twirl three mustaches at the same time. Johnny Appleseeds, children between the ages of 8-13 in the 1840s, used to exclaim, “You are a hero, Mr. Lipscomb, for us, Johnny Appleseeds, and you will never be forgotten by golly,” as […]

Opening day has come and what a sweet thing it was.  So what did we learn so far?  First thing first, the Dodgers are leaving little doubt that they are going to try to bash their way to a championship.  We also have confirmed that our first round hitters are going to give us a thrilling chase for the top spot with our number two hitter Mookie Betts hitting all over the world.  Finally, we have confirmed that Colorado and Oakland will continue to be barren for fantasy owners this year.  In this week’s edition of the Top 100 Hitters for then 2024 fantasy baseball season, we attack the last 20 spots in our rankings to finish off opening weekend.  If we could fit 40 players into these spots, there would be a longer list as this part of the rankings is tight.  If you are expecting to see Tyler O’Neill, Mitch Haniger or even Jackson Merrill there is good argument for each to crack these rankings and time will tell if they can.  For now, let us finish up our pre-season top 100 hitters.

I know auctions (I guess we’re calling ’em salary cap drafts, now?) take too long, but so do most movies these days. The culture serves us escapism in heaping gobs of minutes and hours, and for four hours twice a year, I clear the calendar and settle in at the computer screen to click along with fantasy baseball luminaries like Scott White, Mike Gianella, and a handful of Razzball’s finest. I love it. The niche math in motion appeals directly to some lizard-brain survivalist inside me. Thanks as always to Scott for running these leagues and for inviting Razz-folks like Laura, B_Don, Grey and me to the party. Here’s how the night played out for me:

Welcome back another installment of the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty rankings. This week we feature the players ranked 100-76 on our way to the top-ranked group.

Here is a look at the breakdown of this week’s grouping:

5 players between the ages of 30-34
14 players between the ages of 25-29
6 players between the ages of 20-24
9 infielders
7 starting pitchers
7 outfielders
2 catchers

If you are surprised by the number of players who are 29 or younger – a whopping 20 of the 25 players ranked in this group – you shouldn’t be. It stands to reason that the best way to build or maintain a winning dynasty team is do that is with the best young players in the game. The older players are great to fill a hole, but not build around.

More and more of the top hitters are starting to get ranked as well as I skew my rankings in favor of the young hitters, though I don’t ignore starting pitchers as much as I used to. But if picking between a pitcher and a hitter who are close in the rankings, I will go with the hitter this point.

Now on to the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty Rankings: 100-76…
