Fantasy Baseball

Here at The Best Sports Blog, we like to start fantasy early. I mean really early. That's because, even when you're not playing yet, it's still fun. One of my favorite hobbies is to debate rankings with my friends.

Last year, my friend John had Jose Reyes in his Top 10 and we debated that all the way….well all the way until he got injured and I ended up being right.

Of course, I was wrong about Gordon Beckham and Paul Konerko so no one's perfect but I do tend to win my fantasy leagues so I must be doing something right.

So, with that, I give you my initial top 75 rankings with overrated players in bold and my favorite sleepers underlined.
