With the top 40 outfielders for 2016 fantasy baseball, we’ve finished all the hitter recaps.  We meaning me, but I’ll include you.  No, that’s not a cue to try to hold my hand.  Why are you now patting my butt?  Don’t muss my hair!  The pitching recap will begin next.  You can hardly wait.  No, you!  To recap, the end of the season rankings are based on our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater.  I felt the easiest way to keep it objective would to go this route.  This way when I say someone finished 30th and I ranked them 23rd in the preseason, it carries more weight like a non-vegan Bill Clinton.  Anyway, here’s the top 40 outfielders for 2016 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:

21. Gregory Polanco – The funny thing (which is unlikely to be funny to anyone) people were scratching their heads about my preseason ranking of Polanco, and how high I was on him, but they had no problem with my speed projections, they didn’t understand how Polanco was going to hit 15 homers.  Yeah, he blew away 15 homers, but Machado’d his speed.  I might be even more aggressive with Polanco next year, thinking he can put together the 20+ homer power with the 30 steal speed.  Yeah, I love Polanco.  Preseason Rank #14, 2016 Projections:  101/15/62/.269/30, Final Numbers: 79/22/86/.258/17

22. Rajai Davis – I’m going to go out on a 150-year-old, sturdy-as-shizz oak limb and say The King of SAGNOF has been in the top 40 outfielders for four (stutterer!) of the past five years, yet — again with some stank — YET! if I were to rank Rajai in the top 40 in the preseason y’all would be like, “Yo, Grey is handsome, but dum AF.  What’s that?  Dum has a B?  You sure?  So, it’s spelled bum?  The B’s at the end?  Aw, get out of here!”  Preseason Rank #62, 2016 Projections:  52/8/38/.251/29, Final Numbers: 74/12/48/.249/43

23. Jay Bruce – Appropriate that Bruce and Upton are back-to-back because both are so great (for a few months) then are so terrible (for a few months).  If you traded Bruce for Upton on July 17th, then all praise to you, Jesus Allah Zuckerberg, as they’re instructed to call their boss at Facebook.  You are some kind of soothsayer, a sayer of soothes, if you will.  Preseason Rank #63, 2016 Projections:  65/27/82/.229/8, Final Numbers: 74/33/99/.250/4

24. Justin Upton – Hahahahahahahahahaha… Upton kills me, literally and figuratively.  He reached his projections almost, nearly, exactly, perfectly, on the mark, and looked like a scrub, barely, almost, not-exactly terrible for four of six months.   Is there anyone that looks like they should retire for two-thirds of the season while still having a top 25 outfielder year?  Oh, yeah, Jay Bruce.  Preseason Rank #10, 2016 Projections:  95/29/102/.254/12, Final Numbers: 81/31/87/.246/9

25. Odubel Herrera – I faintly remembered liking ODB in the preseason, so I went to read what I wrote and I did have him in a tier of deep league flyers, i.e., I was positive on him, just not positive on what I was positive on.  ODB definitely was hot like Mariah in the 1st half, more than the 2nd half when he was just an Old Dirty Bastard.  Preseason Rank #98, 2016 Projections:  58/6/51/.257/15, Final Numbers: 87/15/49/.286/25

26. Yoenis Cespedes – His end-of-the-season ranking is much worse than his preseason one because 4,765 guys hit 30 homers, and less because Yoenis was disappointing.  Technically, since Yoenis missed thirty games, you likely got a lot more from his outfield slot than a top 26 outfielder too.  Preseason Rank #16, 2016 Projections:  85/27/102/.278/7, Final Numbers: 72/31/86/.280/3

27. Stephen Piscotty – I seriously almost fell off my seat when I saw my projections for Piscotty, though, I am typing this while standing up.  “Who got a standing desk?  This mo’fo!” Which is also the most unlikely rap lyrics ever.  I could’ve sworn I projected Piscotty for 25 homers.  At some point in-season, I started begging Piscotty to get to 25 homers on the year and soon I began to think that was my projection for him.  Damn, he surpassed my expectations by a lot!  Preseason Rank #43, 2016 Projections:  86/15/65/.278/7, Final Numbers: 86/22/85/.273/7

28. Chris Davis – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen.

29. Adam Jones – Due to *uck Showalter, we were cost about five to ten spots in the rankings on Jones.  Most guys if they moved from cleanup to leadoff, they’d just flip-flop their runs and RBIs.  Any ideas why this is not true for Jones?  Has a little something to do with his .310 OBP.  If he hit cleanup, he prolly would’ve had near the same number of runs, but would’ve also had at least 20 more RBIs.  Preseason Rank #20, 2016 Projections:  82/28/95/.266/4, Final Numbers: 86/29/83/.265/2

30. Billy Hamilton – I giggled slightly when I saw he only knocked in 17 runs.  Any hoo!  I can give you a pretty easy shorthand on Hamilton.  He’s always going to be ranked between 30 and 40 if he plays close to a full season; any player would that can get out of bed and steal 60 bases.  Is he easy to own?  No, not especially because it’s straight speed and nothing else.  Preseason Rank #37, 2016 Projections:  71/5/35/.244/60, Final Numbers: 69/3/17/.260/58

31. Trea Turner – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen.

32. Yasmany Tomas – Went over him in the top 20 3rd basemen.

33. Ben Zobrist – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen.

34. Adam Eaton – Damn, he’s a bore.  His value almost entirely lies in the 619 at-bats.  Without those ABs, there’s no Eaton, which sounds contradictory.  Should be with those abs, there’s no eating.  Preseason Rank #36, 2016 Projections:  101/11/58/.278/21, Final Numbers: 91/14/59/.284/14

35. Hernan Perez – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen.

36. Melvin Upton – I don’t know what the Padres were feeding their hitters in the first half of the year, but Myers and Upton were all bowdie-bout-it, then Upton was traded and reverted to his previous B.J. years, I mean sucking.  Preseason Rank #128, 2016 Projections:  37/7/29/.217/15, Final Numbers: 64/20/61/.238/27

37. Andrew McCutchen – A lot of guys in this top 40 —  Piscotty, McCutchen, Calhoun, Melky, Zobrist, Eaton — weren’t exactly terrific; what they all did was have a crapton of at-bats.  With that said, McClutchin-My-Knee should’ve been obvious to rank this low in the preseason.  His knee is shot and he got older than Benjamin Button played backwards in fast motion.   Preseason Rank #8, 2016 Projections:  89/24/98/.289/14, Final Numbers: 81/24/79/.256/6

38. Brad Miller – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen.

39. Kole Calhoun – If this were an ordinary season and we were living in an ordinary world and we were ordinary men with extraordinary women, Calhoun should’ve had 30+ homers this year.  He’s in his prime and this year Gyorko hit 30 homers in 84 at-bats, so Calhoun, you did a’ight, but a’ight doesn’t walk the dog, butter the biscuit or say sorry when you run over someone’s foot with your Vespa.  Preseason Rank #41, 2016 Projections:  76/23/54/.258/5, Final Numbers:  91/18/75/.271/2

40. Melky Cabrera – They should make one of those novelty baseball cards like they did in the 80s of Vida Blue and Bud Black, that they labeled “Black and Blue,” but with Melky, Coco Crisp and LL Cool J, labelled, “Melky…Cereal…Baby…Melky…Cereal…Baby…”  Preseason Rank #68, 2016 Projections:  79/14/68/.276/5, Final Numbers: 70/14/86/.296/2

    Grey!

    Great write-up, better than yesterday’s. That makes today’s even greyter!

    a. On the King of SAGNOF, he led the junior circuit in SBs!! Led!!!! SAGNOF no more!

    b. Think I’m going to go all-in with ODB and Cespedes next year. Tough to love Cespoopdes with all those moving parts but he could easily hit 40 HRs if healthy. Odubel could be a legitimate break out candidate!!

    c. Eaton, man. He was good at times but overall just waiver wire fodder even in a 12-teamer. Had him for a bit but overall the run production for the WhiteSux was really atrocious from top to bottom! A very dilapidated lineup indeed.

    d. Have visitors from The Embassy coming on mission today!!! Can’t wait! They’ll be with us until Friday! True story, I was redeployed to be on this mission ONLY because I was the ONLY staff member who could speak English. One of the American mission members speaks French and English but the rest speak only English! I’ll show those Frenchies who’s the boss!

    Cheers,
    Ante

            @Grey: Grey!!

            Ga!!!! Now you’ve cornered me! ‘All men are created equal.’ It’s written in the constitution, right?

            Anyway, check this out.

            a. One of the mission members is an avid fantasy baseball manager!!!! He won his 10-team roto league!! I told him about razzball.com and he was very grateful.

            b. Other important information…So, I’m getting ready for bed about 5 minutes ago and there’s a knock at my door! ‘Ante, please help.’ Aw, man. I just got into my PJs (i.e., no PJs I sleep naked). So get dressed go see what’s up. And another friend from the US can’t unlock the door to her room. I used to occupy that room so I resolve the problem in a second. Basically, the lock on the door can be in one of 4 states – 0 when it’s completely unlocked, 1 when the lock’s been turned one full rotation, 2 when the lock’s been turned two full rotations and 0.5 when you can’t open the door and you can’t unlock the door or re-lock the door. Basically, the answer is ‘Made in China, what did you expect?’. So, all you have to do is take the key and kind of jimmy the lock between the door and the door frame to phase 0 and open the door, Frank Voila! It’s weird and I’m sure there’s a locksmith in the house who can explain it better than me.

            Cheers,

      @Cram It: So crazy… Piscotty did exceed expectations, but he sure didn’t feel like he won any leagues…

      • CMUTimmah says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Traded Morales for Piscotty after the draft, and was stoked the guy wanted to make the trade (would have just drafted him, but got booted from the lobby and autopicked Bruce and Morales…)

        I cut bait with Bruce for Diaz early in the season, so of course Bruce came out hitting shortly after. But Diaz was a more important piece in my championship.

        I hate half of the players above. However, am I crazy or is Zobrist usually way over drafted? He’s a great baseball player, but he’s merely a fantasy average guy. He’s the “stop the bleeding” swiss army knife. I haven’t owned him in years because I can’t commit to him in a position usually. I’m perennially successful in non-roto formats, so I’d like to think I’m doing something right avoiding him..

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          You’re not crazy, he’s always overdrafted for the reasons you state… He’s a great real world player, but for fantasy he’s pretty meh

    We start 5 outfielders in my dynasty 12 team league. I’m carrying 7 with 2 on reserves. Can have 6 reserves.
    My current outfielders are Yoenis, JD, Leonys, Kiermaier, Fowler, Maybin and Margot. I needed SB late last year. I wish I had one more power guy. Best available are Domingo, Grandy, and S. Rodriguez with his multi positional status. He is a FA so who knows where he will take his boxing skills.
    Do you see any obvious move?

      @Packers: Meh, not really… Maybe Leonys for Domingo but not really a move I’d do right now

      @Dr. Kenneth Noisewater: He was the slut of my league this year, he got traded like 6 times before the all star break….I was guilty of trading for him early in the season then passed him to the next owner.

          @JeF WiTh 1 F: @Big Odio: Yeah I drafted him in one league too. In one RCL I traded Adam Jones and Semien for Heyward and Villar. I’ll still count that as a win.

        @Big Odio: My worst is keeping Carlos Gomez in an 8 keeper league.

        RCLs I took the guaranteed save combo of Hoover/Jumbo, haha, but that was lateish. Worst would have to be taking Heyward in the 4th I believe. That Drumpfs anything else.

        • Big Odio says:

          @Dr. Kenneth Noisewater: I took Gomez in the 3rd or 4th round of perts league…and still won

                  That was my hometown! (kinda, I grew up a half mile from there) Dapper Dan’s had all the latest fly fashions, where I got my 8 Ball jacket

    We have a guy here in STL that talks sports, is one helluva entrepreneur and cackles like a hyena…Coincidence??!? …………Also, he’s short, bald and has no mustache…..So, that’s some disguise you have Lothario!

    Help me pick 10 keep forevers from this list:
    C- Sanchez
    1B- Miggy
    2B- Trea Turner
    SS- Correa
    3B- Arenado
    CI- Bregman
    OF- Betts
    OF- Springer
    OF- Polanco
    OF- Dahl

    SP- Syndergaard
    SP- Price
    SP- Strasburg
    SP- Salazar

    This team lost in the semi-finals due to Stras, Thor, and Salazar injuries. Such a bummer. I’m loaded for next year. Just need to keep the right guys.

    • Grey

      C- Sanchez
      1B- Miggy
      2B- Trea Turner
      SS- Correa
      3B- Arenado
      CI- Bregman
      OF- Betts
      OF- Springer
      Syndergaard
      Salazar

      Hard to say on Salazar, Price or Stras right now, depends on their health in March… Maybe even Polanco instead of one of them

        @Grey: Yeah, I’m hoping it will all be sorted out by then. Maybe I can trade one for a different arm? Thanks for all the write-ups. You truly do the lord’s work.

            @Grey: Seriously, I want every single print from that dude. “Flying Shark Amongst Pyramid City” might be my personal favorite, but I could probably talk the woman into one with a cat.

                  At this taco place by me, they have them on the wall, like a diner would have a local artist… And I’ve never bought art off a wall before, but I was thisclose to buying a cat-chola

      NLCS! I’m psyched… Already making fun of Cougs, asking her if she’s excited to see Larry Bowa

      • Big Odio says:

        @Grey: you shoukd ask her ” hey babe, do you think Sandberg will be at the game today?”

          He prolly will, but in the crowd… She likely has a crush on him, what female Cubs fan doesn’t?

                    (link)

                    @Grey: not insight, maybe in hindsight that’s not the best idea. I kinda get tired of seeing those things too. I’m with Cougs on that one unless they are black track pants which is totally acceptable for most social situations, but those grey ones are so whatevs

    Hi Grey. This fantasy baseball lag is a downer. I didn’t do a playoff pool either. Oh well. Wondering what your ranking would be for keepers for next year out of Verlander, Carrasco and Archer. Thanks.

    Not sure what made me do it…time on my hands? Anyway, I wanted to see what the impact of Story in the lineup had on Arenado. Wanted to be conservative so disregarded Story’s first week. Left me with 89 games that the two played in the same games. Arenado’s production was down across the board when in with Story, compared to games without Story.
    Have never compared impact on a brute when in the lineup with other brutes.
    Any thoughts?
    The 89 games:
    Arenado: 63R/22HR/70RBI/.284AVG
    Story: 58R/20HR/60RBI/.283AVG

      When he was with Story it was colder weather… when he was with Story, it could’ve been the pitchers… when with Story, it might’ve had nothing to do with Story

            @Grey: Your reasoning is solid to me. The weather thing would totally explain better performance outside those dates. (Something I hadn’t considered at all…that’s the reason for asking THE MAN.)
            Story’s numbers not that much off Arenado’s, hmmm….

    Oh my god, they put my pops full body picture on the sliding doors going into the emergency room that he works at. You now get greeted and treated by a male model. And they’re putting his picture on the door of all affiliated hospitals as well. I can’t even…
