What sets fantasy baseball aside for me is all the strategy that goes in. Some owners like crafty veterans while other want young prospects. There is no right way! It’s your team! You’re able to build it how you want!
I’m asking you all now to please get involved in a dynasty start up. I’m not trying to push my ideals on anyone but I promise you’ll thank me later! The excitement that builds inside of me this time of year can only be explained as Christmas 1989 and getting my first Nintendo. Only this time you get to relive that excitement over and over.
We all find our own way in terms of fantasy sports. There is no wrong way! Build how you want and build to maximize your enjoyment.
What I’m going to bring you this time around is a 14 team mixed league mock draft. 5×5 rotisserie scoring format. Which means, batting average, home runs, RBI’s, stolen bases and runs for hitters. Wins, saves, ERA, strikeouts and WHIP for pitchers.
169. German Marquez SP-Colorado Rockies
Great combo of age and skill. I’d prefer more of a discount but to each is own.
170. Lorenzo Cain OF-Milwaukee Brewers
Always dealing with nagging injuries but he’s still running.
171. Scott Kingery OF-Philadelphia Phillies
Has multi-position eligibility and is still young. Remember the name!
172. Edwin Encarnacion 1B-New York Yankees
Aging yes but still packs a punch.
173. Marcus Stroman SP-New York Mets
His ERA is better than his WHIP and the strikeouts could pile up if he’s able to toss 200+ innings this year.
174. Matt Carpenter 3B-St. Louis Cardinals
Boy oh boy was he a disappointment last season. Matt has a solid track record so I’m expecting a bounce bag.
175. Kevin Newman SS-Pittsburgh Pirates
Kevin hit .308 with 12 HR’s and 16 SB’s his rookie season. Transitioned to batting lead off late in the season. I love the upside here for cheap.
176. Paul DeJong SS-St. Louis Cardinals
Has great power at SS and hit for average. Super steal at this spot!
177. Brendan McKay SP-Tampa Bay Rays
Kid can miss bats but needs to induce more ground balls.
178. Tommy Edman 3B-St. Louis Cardinals
Another Cardinal with multi-positional eligibility with an all around stand up offensive profile.
179. Griffin Canning SP-Los Angeles Angels
Was productive when healthy. Was his rookie season so let’s see what he can do this season.
180. Didi Gregorius SS-Philadelphia Phillies
Why have so many people forgot about him and how good he was in 2018? Power upside galore.
181. Hunter Dozier 3B-Kansas City Royals
Hunter is a late bloomer and that’s ok. He should maintain these numbers.
182. Mitch Haniger OF-Seattle Mariners
Another guy who is often injured. Doesn’t bother me one bit, take the discount.
Cardinal heavy 13th round! Shout out to Ed Ehlers!
