Monday, March 7th, 2011

He can't do it again, can he?

Preseason fantasy baseball position rankings wrap up here at FBS with the Top-10 Closers list. We have already listed fantasy baseball catchers, second basemen and outfielders, so now we finish, fittingly, with the closers. Here are my early spring training rankings for the RP position.

Please Note: Stats are listed as: Wins, ERA, Saves/Opportunities, Strikeouts, WHIP and IP for the 2010 season. The player’s age at the start of the 2011 season is next to his team’s name.

No. 1) Mariano Rivera – New York Yankees (41) (more…)

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Top 10 2B

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Cano takes the top spot after posting near MVP numbers.

The top-10 preseason fantasy baseball position rankings continue here at FBS. Last time we listed fantasy baseball catchers, this time it’s for the second basemen. Once thought of as a thin position in fantasy baseball, the 2B talent pool has grown considerably in the last few years, so much so that you could get good value for taking a second baseman in the later rounds. Here are my early pre-spring training rankings for 2B.

Please Note: Stats are listed as: Average, HR, RBI, Runs, SB/Attempts and AB. The player’s age at the start of the 2011 season is next to his team’s name.

1) Robinson Cano – New York Yankees (28)

2010: .319-29-109-103-3/5 (626)
