2013 Dynasty League Rankings
*This list and commentary originally ran early this month at Baseball Prospectus. You should be reading BP, but I don’t think I need to tell you that. What can three months teach us about the landscape of talent in the minor leagues? Most of the time, that short span teaches
We’ve now reached the midpoint of the 2013 season. When we last took a look at this list in mid-May, we were still dealing with relatively small sample sizes from both major leaguers and prospects, so there weren’t huge shake ups to the order. This time is a little different.
He who is resistant to change is destined to perish. On one hand, it’s so simple. The whole off-season we build value-based mausoleums around all of these players, as time stands still long enough for us to construct them. But the only problem with that is that these players are
So this is it. We’ve finally made it to the final day of the project. I hope it’s been a fun read — I certainly know it’s been a long one. After this post, it’ll be at 50,000+ words. Next week, it will be back to regular content, so if

However, I cannot stress how important it is (especially for starting pitchers) to know your league’s scoring system inside and out. The rankings you’ll find below are for a standard 5×5 rotisserie league, but
In a dynasty league, relievers are rarely more than a necessary evil. You’re way behind the eight-ball without them, and it’s the most difficult position to project over the course of a year or more. As you’ll notice much more in my overall rankings, relievers are extremely devalued in a
Not much of an introduction here for Part 2, as we’ll just jump right into the fold. The only thing to note is that here is where the underbelly of the position rests, and it causes there to be a minimal difference between a lot of players on this list.
There are two very distinct sides to the crop of outfielders out there today. The most obvious side that we see is the star side, which is as deep as ever – led by as strong of a top-10 at the position as we have seen this century. And not
