  1. Witlon's Fantasy Baseball Rankings: First Base

    The list is a mixture of stats, potential and playing time projected for the 2012 season(with standard 5◊5 catagories). These will be my preranks to open the season. Iím always open to questions, comments and civil disagreements with my rankings.

    Notes: Probably the deepest position in fantasy baseball, as always. You could argue either way on Cabrera and Pujols, but I like Miguelís situation an protection a tad better. Same can be said for Fielder and Votto. With the depth on the ...

    Something I was doing for my blog, figured I'd share it here as well. Expect a new position posted every day with a Top 100 list to close them out. These are pure opinion, and I'll be using these in my preranks for 5x5 drafts this season.

  4. Sim Leagues, it's a serious business.

    I am going to get it out of the system, so that those who are not a part of sim leagues will never have to worry about blogs on sims ever again.

    But most of you have or are a part of a league. If not, sim leagues are like complex fantasy leagues that are beyond fantasy since it's not based on real life production, instead, it's based on rating forumalas and a statistical generator. Geeky, yes, very. But as sports fans, aren't we all? Sim leagues bring out the best in a sabermetrician, ...
