Good luck!Fantasy Baseball RankingsTop 300: There’s a real battle for No. 187 between Ryan O’Hearn and Eduardo Escobar — and you’ll never guess who won out!Catcher: We don’t want to say catcher is bad, but…no, we do. It’s bad.First Base: Why are so many highly ranked 1Bs eligible at other positions? Today’s MLB, man…Second Base: We have a pair of guys who hit 35-plus HRs last year outside the top 12. Bad job by us, or is this position just really deep now?Third Base: Let’s face it — all you care about is where Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is ranked.Shortstop: Three legit 20-50 candidates? Shortstop sure is cool now.Outfield: How high is too high for Ronald Acuna Jr. and Juan Soto?Starting Pitcher: Can’t believe we’re asking this: Should Walker Buehler be ahead of Clayton Kershaw? (Spoiler: Yes.)Relief Pitcher: About 10 closer jobs are up for grabs this spring, meaning this list will change many, many times before opening day.Comparing ESPN vs. Yahoo rankings: If you play on both sites, you’ll definitely want to know which guys could be drafted sooner/later than you might expect.Fantasy Baseball Sleepers30 Teams, 30 Sleepers: Any list that starts with “Ty Buttrey” has to be a good list.Catcher: Can we interest you in a 5-9, 225-pound catcher-eligible utility player who never walks or strikes out? Thought so.First Base: There’s a guy on here who actually steals some bases. How ’bout that?Second Base: The picture-day photo of Wilmer Flores is reason enough to click on this article.Third Base: There aren’t many true sleepers at the hot corner, but we manage to come up with few bounce-back/breakout candidates.Shortstop: Shortstop has by far the best first names of any of our sleeper lists.Outfield: Can a guy who has basically had the exact same stats his first three seasons really be a sleeper? You’re damn right he can. Hey, they can’t all be Eloy Jimenez.Pitcher: If it wasn’t for Tommy John surgery, we wouldn’t be able to put SPs coming back from TJS on this list. We’re glass half-full people.All-Breakout Team: If this is your entire starting lineup, you’ve done something wrong. If two or three guys are in your lineup, you’ve done something very right.Fantasy Baseball BustsAll-Overrated Team: You’re going to disagree with more than few of these picks, but that’s kind of the point.Fantasy Baseball Rankings Tiers, Draft StrategiesCatcher: Ideally, you’d never have to draft a catcher, but you probably do, so we give you an idea of the best time to strike.First Base: One of these tiers has sub-tiers, so you know it’s good.Second Base: Few positions offer the varied types of contributors 2B does. Also, Brian Dozier.Third Base: Lots of these 3Bs will be drafted as 2Bs or shortstops, which doesn’t seem fair, does it? We help you get ready for that.Shortstop: This might be the strongest top two tiers we’ve ever seen from SS. And then things fall off…Outfield: Spoiler alert: Randal Grichuk and Michael Conforto are in the same tier. More earth-shattering info is just one click away.Starting Pitcher: Tier 1 has six pitchers in it. Can you guess who?Relief Pitcher: Closer tiers depend a lot on job security, which changes quickly, so this article might be irrelevant by the time you’re done with this sentence.2019 MLB Top Prospect Rankings, SleepersTop 50: Nos. 1 and 2 will be drafted fairly highly this year, but the other 48 names are worth remembering, too — especially for dynasty leaguers.Catcher: If you’re looking for the next Mike Piazza…you’re not going to find him here. But you might just find the next Francisco Cervilli, so…still pretty cool, right?First Base: There aren’t many names you need to remember here, but there’s one you definitely need to know on draft day.Second Base: One of these guys has been on top prospects lists for three years now, and another one has a very familiar last name.Third Base: There are more 3B prospects than Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and they’d appreciate if you learned about them by reading this article…that starts with Vladimir Guerrero Jr.Shortstop: Two of baseball’s top prospects are likely on their way to the majors at some point this year. You might remember their fathers…Outfield: There’s a nice mix of opening day contributors and midseason sleepers on this list.Pitcher: The pitchers you draft will probably be awesome and never get hurt, so you might not even need to read this…but maybe just for fun?Fantasy Baseball Mock DraftFantasy Pros Mock Draft Simulator: Just plug in your league settings, pick your draft spot, and run through full mock drafts in minutes.Fantasy Baseball Auction Draft StrategyAuction Draft Tips: Auctions are unpredictable, but if you follow these tips, you’ll be ready for anything…even a “My Cousin Vinny” reference.

Sagnol urges PSG to go for Liverpool midfielder Keitaby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Bordeaux coach Willy Sagnol believes PSG should move for Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita.PSG are in the market for a new midfield signing as a replacement for wantaway Adrien Rabiot.And Sagnol says: “With (Marco) Verratti, you have a player who is very good technically, able to organise the game from deep. But he needs a player with a large volume of play at his side. “Naby Keita (Liverpool) is a player who knows how to do everything, who recovers balls, can also project with and without the ball. Verratti and Keita could form a beautiful duet if we assume that (Thomas) Tuchel retains his defence with three men behind.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp expects a tough game against Arsenal and highlighted strike duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette as the main threatThe unbeaten Premier League leaders will welcome Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday hoping to maintain their six-point advantage over Tottenham with a ninth straight league win.On Thursday, Gunners manager Unai Emery revealed he believes Liverpool can remain unbeaten for the entire season – just like when his club’s “Invincibles” managed to do so in the 2003/04 campaign.And Klopp dismissed the suggestion that Emery could be trying to pile the pressure on Liverpool by saying that.“That is not how I know Unai Emery,” said Klopp, according to Sky Sports.“I don’t think they will have the white flag and say ‘no chance’. It will be a really tough game tomorrow night, because they are good.“That is all I am interested in and all the rest is a nice little game, where people respond to your questions and you make stories of the answers.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We are focused on ourselves and that is all.”The German reckons Liverpool cannot afford a similar performance to the one they did at the Emirates Stadium last month, which ended in a 1-1 draw.“Play much better than we did at Arsenal, for example – that would be a good idea,” replied Klopp on what Liverpool could do better this time around.“Because, especially defending wise, we weren’t as good as we can be, or we were after that. I think it was a period where we didn’t do too well.“They are strong, good with the ball and very lively. Their counter-attacks are crazy quick – (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang and (Alexandre) Lacazette are an outstanding striker couple up front. It will be difficult.”The Liverpool and Arsenal match will begin at 18:30 (CET) on Saturday.

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he enjoys a great relationship with Unai Emery but will put that aside when Tottenham face Arsenal on Sunday.Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery are familiar foes as they have faced each other numerous times in La Liga, but Sunday’s game will be the new Arsenal manager’s first North London derby.The Spurs manager is getting ready for his 10th North London derby and says Emery’s arrival at Arsenal will add a different element to the game.“It will be so different,” Pochettino told Sky Sports.“Now we are going to face a good friend in Unai Emery. It will be strange but when we start the game we are going to compete.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We always had a fantastic relationship when we faced each other in Spain. I wish him all the best here at Arsenal, after our game of course.“He is doing a fantastic job there. Arsenal have always been a very good team and they had one of the greatest managers ever, but now they have a totally different culture.“This is my fifth season here so I understand completely what it means. In the last few seasons we have increased the level against the London clubs.“But, of course, Arsenal is special and it is important to be ready with the right mentality.”
