The Dynasty Guru’s Top 200 Dynasty League Starting Pitchers, Nos. 61-80

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.

The Dynasty Guru’s hard-working staff has spent countless hours crafting these rankings, and we hope you enjoy and continue to support our efforts by showing your appreciation through this link or via the splendid ‘donate’ button located on the upper right-hand corner of the homepage.

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.

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.
