The Dynasty Guru’s Top 200 Dynasty League Starting Pitchers, Nos. 121-140

It’s been over two months since the Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years, ending the 2016 baseball season. But if you’re like most fantasy baseball owners, those two months probably feel like two years. Considering it’s still another month until Spring Training even starts, late January has to be the worst time to be a baseball fan. It’s too late to reflect on last year, but next season is too far ahead to look forward to. Luckily, with a little help from The Dynasty Guru, the next month is survivable, as we’ll be ranking and commenting on a whole lot of players over the next six weeks.

Minor League Ball Releases its Top 200 Prospects

The wise and powerful John Sickels released his top 200 prospect list earlier this week and it’s free for your eye balls. Andrew Benintendi claimed the top spot, followed by Yoan Moncada and Dansby Swanson.

It’s great content and it can help inform some of our fantasy decisions, plus provide a “follow” list for those of us in leagues that roster 150 or more prospects. It also serves as a reminder that dynasty prospect rankings are a very different beast than generic prospect rankings. For example, defense gets you on the field, but we don’t care as much about things such as throwing arms in dynasty baseball, do we? No, we do not. Brendan Rodgers (number 17 on Sickels’ list) could be as high as number one on a dynasty prospect list.

Defense Wins Championships: Robert Covington

Looking for a boost in the conventional defensive categories (blocks, steals, rebounds)? You came to the right place. Welcome to “Defense Wins Championships” – a section of the Dynasty Guru Blog that will spotlight one statistically thriving defensive player. Target them.

Robert Covington has been a part of “the process” for three years now. A valuable part.

The 6-9 small forward has proven to be a commendable fantasy player, particularly in the defensive categories.

Covington’s potential was evident from his days at Tennessee State. With his outstanding length and versatility, RoCo was able to guard multiple positions and recover quickly when beat off the dribble. In his senior season, he averaged 2.2 steals and 1.7 blocks (with a steal percentage of 4.1 and a block percentage of 5.9) in 31 minutes of action. He was also a force on the boards, grabbing 7.4 per contest in his four-year career.

Many thought his ability wouldn’t translate to the professional game, as Covington went undrafted in 2013. They were wrong. Continue reading

I Command You To Trade for Alex Reyes

Normally, you wouldn’t encourage trading for the pitcher that’s been deemed out for the year in March. There’s only one place that my crazy idea could possibly fly, and that’s this website.

I am about to implore you to go and trade for Alex Reyes. Just this week, the Cardinals determined he will need Tommy John Surgery and confirmed he will be out for the whole year, and possibly some of next. Don’t expect them to renege on that assertion, as this young arm is too gifted to be risking a quick comeback.

Right, I told you that I was gonna tell you the unthinkable: pursue a trade for Reyes. This is the part where if you’ve already determined I’m crazy, or if you’re at least on the fence, I will attempt to prove to you that what I lack in craziness, I make up for in a desire to swindle the other owners in my league. Finally, let’s talk about Alex Reyes.
