Hope everybody’s All-Star Break is going smooth and you are able to catch up on seeing your family more and maybe getting into a new show or two to help you get through this dead period of our sport that consumes our daily lives. The 2nd half will be fast and furious with trades, playoff […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Please see our player page for Luis Arraez to see projections for today, the next 7 days and rest of season as well as stats and gamelogs designed with the fantasy baseball player in mind.
Welcome, prematurely balding men and five women who are married to PBMs and decided if you can’t beat them, join them! Make yourself comfortable, this is gonna be a long post. Here, enjoy some coffee. Oops, you just drank rat poison. I should’ve used different mugs. Don’t worry, it can’t be worse than rostering Jonathan India in the 1st half. Oh, you rostered him, and that’s why you drank the poison? Now, I’m following! Hey, I’m supposed to be leading! *does a teapot with both hands on hips and shakes head* Before we get into the top 100 for the 2nd half of 2022 fantasy baseball, let’s just be glad our 18-year-old selves can’t see us now, we’d get beat up! But our twelve-year-old selves would think we’re the coolest! So, as with all of the other 2022 fantasy baseball rankings, slop this up with a grain of salt. If you need a 2nd baseman, but an outfielder is above him that doesn’t mean you can’t trade that outfielder for that 2nd baseman. Also, things change in fantasy baseball. Daily. I could put Aaron Judge number one, and he could pull a–Well, we won’t even mention an injury with the top players after we lost Tatis this preseason. As I say about the Giancarlo underwear I bought off eBay, why soil a good thing? This list is a road map for where I think guys are valued. It’s not the Holy Grail in the Church of Grey, that would be my mustache. This list is NOT (caps for emphasis, not aesthetics) where I see guys ending up if you were to take their first half and combine it with the 2nd half. This is simply a list of the top hundred fantasy baseball players if you were to pick them up today. So while Juan Soto did not have the greatest first half, he will appear on this list because, well, we have to believe in miracles — my 12-year-old self would want that, and to sleep with Cher. 12-year-old Grey loved Cher. The projections are not their combined 1st half and 2nd half numbers; these are their projections for the 2nd half of 2022. I also liberally used our rest of the season Fantasy Baseball Player Rater. That’s right, we have a Player Rater that tells you what players will do. It’s like that camera from The Twilight Zone. Welcome to the future! Anyway, here’s the top 100 for fantasy baseball for the 2nd half of 2022:Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve made it to the All-Star break, and like the previous Top 20 shortstops list, today’s top 20 second basemen list looks very different than the preseason’s top 20 due to injuries and ineffectiveness. Players with long-term injuries like Ozzie Albies and Brandon Lowe have been omitted (although Lowe was just activated Saturday). This list […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
All righty, Welcome Back and I’m back from a little rest and relaxation which was much needed. I had plenty of time though to stay plugged into the games and watch and listen to what was happening around the league. The dead zone of sports is almost upon us as the all-star break is just […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hunter Renfroe has 13 home runs, but his 118 points and 0.527 points per plate appearance is not roster material. He did have 31 homers last year and 33 in 2019, so the power is real. Hopefully, it returns soon. Unrelated but now related because I’m writing it, Wade Boggs surprisingly had only a 0.677 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A few days ago, MLB announced the 2022 MLB All-Star Game starters. For the most part, MLB and the fans got the voting right. As usual, there are the inevitable All-Star snubs. There will be some nostalgia seeing future Hall-of-Famers Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera take part in the festivities. Last week we took a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kyle Schwarber sees the Nats, whether he’s wearing the uni or facing them, and he turns into Schwammerin’ Kyle Schwarber, The Schwammer. Got a homer to hammer? Call the Schwammer! Need a nail put in the Ikea cabinet you just bought? Get the Schwammer! Wanna scare some kids off your porch? Schwammer time! Yesterday, The Schwammer went 3-for-4 with his 26th and 27th homer. In his last 162 games, The Schwammer has the eye-popping stats of 121/53/109/.256, and 17 homers in the last 34 games. U Can’t Touch This Schwammer. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you have Yordan Alvarez on your team then you know that he’s made it his business to do everything he can to help you win. In fact, no hitter has scored more fantasy points than Alvarez over the last 28 days. During that span, he has scored 120 points, with a 1.25 points per […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
All Star voting is in full swing for the MLB (go vote for your favorites) so lets turn our attention to the fantasy baseball points league All Stars. I don’t want this list to just be a look at the top 3 at each position because you can check that on whatever platform you’re playing on. Plus I want to recognize some performances from guys no one was talking about during draft season. And it’s my list so I can write about whoever I want. Let me know who you disagree with below or on Twitter. Hopefully you were able to snag a few of these guys for your squad.
So without further ado… I preset my 2022 Fantasy Baseball Points League All Stars.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The end of the world. No, I’m not talking about WWIII, the continued collapse of the US Dollar/economy, or the next predicted apocalypse conspiracy. I recently spent the weekend in Montauk, celebrating a dear friend’s wedding. Montauk is colloquially known by Long Island residents as the “End of the World” because it is the easternmost […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Did you know that Wilmer Flores has two brothers named Wilmer? So when he introduces himself and some of his brothers, he says “Hi. I’m Wilmer. This is my brother Wilmer. And this is my other brother Wilmer.” Why couldn’t they be named Larry and Daryl! The Wilmer Flores that plays for the San Francisco […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I remember this time when I wanted to take a break away from my job as a fantasy analyst and travel the world. I had decided to take a trip with my friend to Jamaica. As you can imagine, I had totally lost myself in the vacation and no longer had those feelings of remorse for recommending Tyler O’Neill, Javy Baez, and Joey Votto. It was a clean slate as I had gone a good 6 weeks without even a late night text to any of my old “crushes”. As I returned to the States, I got back into my old habits of chasing last weeks’ hero or the new rookie call-up.
It was this behavior that caused me to slip into bad habits and questioning everything that I thought I had learned alongside my Razzball breatherin (and sisterin). Then, just like that, there was a collective “snap” and I remembered that I have this handy article every week to keep me in check and keep me prepared. It was like I ” got my groove back”! Come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever been to Jamaica, and I am pretty sure that Whoopi Goldberg isn’t a friend of mine?
Oh well, so this was all a terrible dream, and an even worse story! Luckily for you, this weeks’ edition of Getting Ahead in Head to Head will help you get your groove back!Please, blog, may I have some more?
