Introducing Fantasy Baseball 2007
Hello loyal Brew City Sports readers, it's that time of year again. It's fantasy baseball draft season! Yahoo will open up its fantasy baseball leagues this friday, and other leagues are already forming on other systems. Last year, we ranked players at every position, ordering just about every player that you'd ever consider for a fantasy baseball team. I ranked all the players and we discussed rankings as a group. It was a system that worked well, at least it did for me. I finished first in all four of my fantasy baseball leagues last year. I'm still looking to perfect the ranking system, so I've made some changes to the categories this year. As always, I encourage criticism and discussion. It's that discussion that makes us all more knowledgeable and prepared to draft.
There are a lot of other sites that discuss draft strategies, top players, and sleepers. In my opinion, most sites are garbage. They're all too standardized and fail to fully capture breakout potential and whether a player's numbers were highly influenced by luck. I also think that most sites will miss the significant talent differences between the AL and NL. And, every site I've ever seen overvalues the top-notch relief and undervalues lower end closers. It is my hope that we are the best site available for fantasy baseball draft prep.
I'll post general draft strategies this weekend and will begin positional postings next week. I hope you're all ready to discuss and anxious to get the year started.
In closing, make sure to watch the classic Brewers game televised tonight in the Milwaukee area. It is the Brewers' 13th straight win on April 20th, 1987. It was a scortching day in Milwaukee, setting a record high Milwaukee temperature for the day. Only serving to make things more hot was Rob Deer. You'll just have to watch tonight to see his performance.
