The top players in this position group are some of the top players in all of baseball. I would be more than happy to build my team around the players I ranked in Tier 1. And the depth of this position is pretty strong. I have no qualms having any of the players in Tiers 2 and 3 on my team while players in the lower tiers still can offer value to a fantasy team.

So let’s get to the rankings.

Pop quiz: Which MLB team has the worst offense since June 1st?  Give up? It’s the New York Yankees, who come in with a woeful 69 wRC+ for the month.  To make matters worse, their best hitters of late have been Jake Bauers and Billy McKinney, lefties who will face Oakland Athletics southpaw JP Sears […]

Shohei Ohtani (1-for-2, 2 RBIs, hitting .301) hit his 22nd homer to tie for the MLB lead, and he tossed 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.29, vs. the Rangers in Texas, one MLB’s best teams, and the Win. Are there enough superlatives for Ohtani? Let’s try, he’s the best baseball player ever. Good place to start. It’s unfair to compare different eras, because things were different 100 years ago when Babe played. Things were different 20 years ago when Bonds was in his heyday. Speaking of which, besides those two, there was Say Hey, there was Hammerin’, there was–Rickey knows you’re not forgetting Rickey–There was Rickey! None needed their full name mentioned. You knew who I meant. None pitched as well as Ohtani is pitching. Babe’s the only one to even give that a go, and we know when he was an elite hitter, he wasn’t also a pitcher. Ohtani sent a ball 443 feet the opposite way last night with ease, has hit six homers in seven games, and has 105 Ks in 82 IP, which is third in strikeouts. Absurd. There are no superlatives. He is the superlative. Superlative Ohtani. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

I’d be lying to you if I said I was satisfied with last week’s streamers. We had a couple of pitchers absolutely pummelled, but it felt like that happened to every pitcher across the league. My ERA and WHIP are laughably bad in some leagues, but almost every fantasy manager is dealing with the same […]

Well Razzfolks, I spoke too soon in last week’s edition of Razzball Ambulance Chasers. In this edition, we are chock full of injuries. So, Grey cannot lay me off yet, right? RIGHT? Last week, the Cincinnati Reds descent into madness continues as five Reds, including Joey Votto, hit the IL. Across the country, the Padres […]

It feels like only yesterday that we were beginning this Head-to-Head journey together, and magically we are entering the final weeks of the regular season.  With only a few more weeks left until the playoffs start, the wins become ever so important.  I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention again that the fantasy football season has crept upon us, leaving, on average, 25% of the league’s cellar dwellers empty.  There are those teams that are still competitive, despite their poor standings, but the odds are greatly reduced.  This is also the time of year when I trim my roster.  Here are a couple of “end-of-season” tricks that I use in preparation for the playoffs.

Trim your roster.  If you have players who are just “certain” they will come out of hibernation.  It’s time to cut bait, it’s nearing September.  I’m looking at you, J.D. Martinez.
Check waivers for returning players.  Not all leagues have IL spots (leave that league if so).   Ozzie Albies, Bryce Harper, Mike Soroka, Manny Margot
Rotating spot among staff.  I always leave at least one spot available among my pitchers to have a stream-worthy option.
Sunday night waiver dump.    If you have limited roster moves per week, use the remaining moves on Sunday night for the week ahead.
