In honor of the “NFL’s Top 100 Players” list recently being finalized, I decided to put together my own list of “Butter’s Top 100 Players in MLB” to have a little fun and (hopefully) debate.
We’ve officially hit the 1/3 mark of the 2018 MLB season. Through 55-60 games, you can generally separate the pretenders from the contenders. There are quite a few surprises at this point of the season.
This is a position that is as stacked as they come with top-tier talent. Outside of pitchers and outfielders, you’d be hard pressed to find a deeper position than 3B.
2B is definitely the thinnest position as far as top talent in fantasy baseball. You have the King (Jose Altuve), the prince (Robinson Cano), then everyone else.
For the sake of my mental state, I’m rating players based on their primary positions. Obviously, there are hundreds of players that qualify at 1B in fantasy baseball. I believe the threshold is 10 appearances the previous season to be eligible for a specific position.
Is it possible that after 2 MVP’s and 3 MVP runner-ups, we have yet to see the best from Mike Trout? I think it’s not just possible, but a guarantee.
It’s never too early to start talking baseball. The fantasy football season is coming to a close and baseball is on the horizon. I know, basketball and hockey are in full swing right now, but baseball and football are my true loves. We’ll soon have other writers who are more knowledgeable to talk on those sports, but anyways, baseball.
