Sizing up the best young players in the division.

Remember this from last year? We do. That’s why we decided to do it again.

Here’s the intro from the 2014 round of U25 rankings:

Craig and I went to Arizona again this year. We drank beer and stared into Jeff Quinton’s eyes and watched baseball. Here’s how we feel about some players we saw, because #scouting:

Fantasy Freestyle: 2014 Graduated Prospects, Part 2: 26-50

Ben Carsley

The second installment in the series looking at the future performance of last year's top promoted prospects.

Last week, I brought you the first installment in this series. This installment follows it, sequentially.

The disclaimer: Let’s take a look at all of the graduated prospects from Bret’s 2014 list, examine how they performed last year and what we can expect moving forward. For each player, I’ll simply render an “overvalued,” “properly valued” or “undervalued” verdict at the end of each writeup, based on current ADP (from FantasyPros.com) and to be used for the 2015 season only.

Picks 106 to 150 take you from Rio Ruiz to Roman Quinn.

In all of our responsibilities, we make decisions and come up with ideas that are not our finest moments. It’s human nature. It’s what drives us to do better. When I came up with the idea to create a mock prospect draft for dynasty leagues years ago, it was one that frankly I wasn’t sure would be super helpful or entertaining—but it has turned into one of my favorite exercises of the off-season. And it’s only become more fun as the participants have gotten stronger. This year we added names from CBS, BaseballHQ and Rotoworld—along with many of our household-name-in-the-fantasy-community participants form last year.

Just like we did last year (and the year before that), we first must examine the parameters. There are always parameters. These were the instructions for the participants of this draft, straight from the email I sent out prior to kickoff:

Fantasy Freestyle: A Different Dynasty Top 101 List

22

Ben Carsley

Ben takes on Bret with a competing ranking of the best fantasy-relevant talents in the minors.

Fun fact: I used to "compete" with Bret Sayre when it came to this stuff.

Before the days of Craig Goldstein and I joining the fantasy team, I considered Bret to be something of a rival in the niche world of dynasty fantasy writing. We both published top-100 lists every year. We both wrote extensively about minor leaguers. Neither of us were very good at Twitter. We were on a collision course.

Tale of the Tape, Dynasty Edition: Nick Burdi vs. Derek Law

6

J.P. Breen

Two right-handed flamethrowers square off, but does the Twin or the Giant have the edge?

At times, we all participate in something that causes us to (1) realize that life has no greater purpose, and (2) accept that our tolerance for pain is much greater than we previously ever imagined. Welcome to the Tale of the Tape, Dynasty Edition, for relievers. We’re placing Nick Burdi alongside Derek Law and trying to determine a winner.

Spoiler Alert: There are no winners in life. We’re all relief prospects at heart—people who flash sporadic greatness, but lack either the luck or the consistency to make it big. A precious few reach their full potential, teasing us with a glimpse of the promised land. The delusion is thinking that the closer’s role is the promised land, though, isn’t it?

Dynasty League Positional Rankings: Top 50 Relief Pitchers

20

Bret Sayre

Sizing up the bullpen arms for the long haul.

The Primer:

Because dynasty league rankings are relatively league-dependent, I set up parameters for ranking the players below (and the ones who will follow at other positions). The list here presupposes a 16-team standard dynasty format, where there are no contracts/salaries, players can be kept forever and owners have minor league farm systems in which to hoard prospects. So feel free to adjust this as necessary for your individual league, whether it’s moving non-elite prospects without 2014 ETAs down if you don’t have separate farm teams or moving lower-risk, lower-reward players up in deeper mixed or -only formats.

The Top 101 Dynasty League Prospects for 2015

69

Bret Sayre

The top 50 of the Dynasty 101 is revealed, from Michael Taylor on up.

Being a self-proclaimed veteran of these lists, I’ve spent the introduction space here on plenty of topics—ranging from the benefits of reading scouting reports, to not giving up on guys too quickly, to reflecting on your own personal biases. There are always discussion points to jump into here that discuss how best to digest and use the information embedded in this articlepossibly one for each of the over 9,000 words spread across these 101 players. This time, I’m going to focus on one that we all know, yet are often afraid to put into action.

As excited as we get about the top prospects in baseball, they represent a value. A number. A price point. And while so many owners, including the ones on this staff, can fall in love with their favorite prospects, the risk in holding onto the larvae of the fantasy world when they can be used best as currency is one that we don’t often consider. If I own Tim Anderson (and believe me, I do), my first thought is always going to be on the type of player Anderson could bewhen it should be equally on both that and what Anderson could return for me now in the trade market. Though the pull of drafting a player out of the amateur ranks or picking up a player when he was far from a top-101 prospect is strong, it’s not the same way you’d generally view a financial investment. Not to get too Quinton on you, as that’s best saved for the man himself (seriously, go read his chapter), but if you buy a share of stock at $20 and it goes up to $40, maybe it’s time to cash it in for something that actually costs $40, rather than waiting for it to go up to $75.
