107th ranked damn that's crazy af he was beast 220 s/o he was top ten in strike outs 3.90 era not bad 1.20 whip I was expecting top 30 at least wow. 16 wins also...even shields at 95 there gone be some huge steals this year for sure
Bro, you should do your own rankings. Not rely on a magazine or Yahoo! To win you need to rank players yourself prior to your draft based on your strategy, league stats, and knowledge of draft tendencies of the other managers in your league (if you've played with them before in the past).
Darvish playing in the AL and having now had a year to be examined by hitters has all the makings to be figured out and a 4.4Era with a 1.3Whip. Pitchers are always going to be ranked a round to 3rounds lower than what many may feel they should be ranked just because Batters typically provide more in Fantasy value over a season. Add to it among top 20 Prospects, youre more than 50% on SPs and the replacement of an injured pitcher is lying in the waits while a replacement for a top 10position player is a replacement level player. which is a 25-40level position player.
Shields I think, will prosper in the Central. But, owners got to sit through his substandard season last year which leaves a bad taste in their mouths and unwilling to draft/rank him as high. So, you're right there. MLB has a bunch of young talent moving in it's a great time to own a fantasy team the top 150players are much better than the top 150players of 4years ago.
