Well, this was supposed to be a May update, but sometimes life doesn’t exactly go according to plan. Of course, when this happens to my daughter, I tell her “you get what you get and you don’t get upset”–and though I think it’s kind of dumb, it rhymes and she generally becomes agreeable. I hope you will all find that same level of agreeableness.
Before we just into the list, a few quick housekeeping items. First of all, you will notice that 2014 MLB draft picks are NOT included here–and that’s because they’ll get looped in during the next update. I know there are a few players who would be on this list who have signed so far, but until the signing deadline passes, there’s no point in just including some and not others (it just feels arbitrary). If you want to know how I feel about 2014 draftees, check out my Top 50 list at Baseball Prospectus that went up yesterday. Secondly, like all of the dynasty league rankings on this site, it is geared towards medium-sized mixed leagues (think 15 teams), so adjust as necessary if you’re in a shallower/deeper format. Finally, like the pre-season #Dynasty500, this ranking is all me, it’s not a consensus (though it does include feedback from a few choice people I would trust to drive my getaway car if I were to rob a liquor store). Also, I’m not going to rob a liquor store. Jokes, people.
And finally, if you enjoy these rankings (or anything else you see at the site here), I hope that you will make a donation to show appreciation for the content you’ve seen here at the Dynasty Guru. We’re not a pay site, so our lifeblood is reader giving. You can do that through this link, or by clicking the “Donate” button on the top-right corner of the homepage. All donations are truly appreciated.
And that’s enough words junking up this space, time to post a huge list because the internet. Your June #Dynasty500 awaits:
