2013 top 25

Postby miracles716 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 5:51 pm

who is everyone's early candidate's for the 2013 fantasy draft? mine are:

1. Kemp: injuries killed him but he has same numbers as MVP season when healthy.

2. Braun : power, speed, avg no weakness.

3. Miggy : great lineup for rbis.

4. Pujols: has been typical Albert since mid-May with a full season under his belt should be unstopable

5. McClutchen: only weakness is won't get 30 hrs but 25 ain't bad

6. Hamilton: total beast mode

7. Cargo: total production across the board

8. Cano: by far the best 2nd baseman in the league

9. Votto

10. Strasburg: it's scary to think how good he could be with 200 innings

11. Encarnacion: hands down the top 3rd baseman in the league

12. Trout: one word: MVP

13. Holliday: one word consistent

14. Beltre: has been a consistent 30-100 guy for 3 yrs now

15. Tulo

16. Verlander

17. King Felix

18. Ellsbury

19. Prince

20. Granderson

21. Headley

22. Bruce

23. Kinsler

24. Bautista

25. Stanton

Pretty good list. Think id take a few out though. Tulo, Ellsbury, Headley are all outside the top 25 for me. Even when Tulo was healthy this year he wasnt playing like a top 25. Ellsbury same thing. Headley although hes on huge heater, not enough for me to jump on that train just yet. Grandy also has great power but i know plenty of people that will be avoiding him and his crap average.

To replace the above id likely add a few out of these guys: Posey, Castro, Andrus, H. Rameriz, Dickey, Price, Sale.

My list would be;

Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Braun, Matt Kemp, Mike Trout, Robinson Cano, Prince Fielder, Albert Pujols, Carlos Gonzalez, Andrew McCutchen, Joey Votto, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Hamilton, Justin Verlander, Edwin Encarnacion, Felix Hernandez, Mike Stanton, Adrian Beltre, Evan Langoria, Hanley Ramirez, Stephen Strusburg, Buster Posey, Clayton Kershaw, Adam Jones, Jay Bruce, Jose Reyes

Notable Exceptions;

Jose Bautista- wrist injuries always bother me with power hitters. I could pick him up but id rather someone take him ahead of me.
Tulo- I never go after players in the first couple of rounds coming off of injuries however if he shows good signs in spring training and the rest of the season i could put him behind justin verlander on this list.


Players that will turn heads;

Adam Jones and Jay Bruce-Call it what you want but I love both of these guys going into next season and would rather have either of them oversome like David Price, Granderson, Texaria, Pedroia, or Ellsbury

I love Bruce too. I think he has made some progress of late against lefties, and this should help him to avoid those prolonged slumps we've become accustomed to. Those slumps are the only reason he has not been a top 15 player the past two years. Sure, he'll still slump, but I think he's becoming a better hitter from a psychological standpoint and that will help him to lessen the frequency and shorten the duration of the slumps. He has legit 45+ HR power, and he will be entering his power prime going into the 2013 season at just 25/26 years of age. It wouldn't shock me in the least if he surpasses 50 HR's at least once in the next 5 years.

Point being, I definitely see Bruce as a top 25 player next season. I'd feel comfortable taking him early to mid second round or later.

I'm surprised neither Cueto or Kershaw made it to anybody's lists so far. Kershaw should benefit from much better run support next year.

I refrain judgement until the winter meetings are over. If Chase headley gets traded to a hitter's park, his numbers could be friggin phenomenal. Maybe not worth a top 25, but up among consideration.

Posey's been amazing but a catcher with a history of injuries and a great pitcher's park? Not top 25 material.

The top 4 pitchers, in any order really, should definitely be Verlander, Kershaw, Felix, and Strasburg--with guys like Price, MadBum, Cain, Weaver, Hamels, Gio, Sale, Cueto, etc. coming a bit later. I'm hesitant to include Dickey, as I don't think I'd take him ahead of any of the guys I mentioned, but perhaps he belongs in that second group too...

i think kershaq struggles too much with wins to be a legit top 5, i love all his other stat lines but a cain would be safer. strasburg is great but i would expect no more than 180 innings from him next year so my top 5 is verlander, felix, price, cain and dickey.
