NOTICE: We adjusted the rankings and dollar values in the draft prep section. But 60-game projections might be misleading considering slow starts and hot streaks as well as injuries and illnesses. This could change as per your input so let us know what you think. The Fantasy Baseball Insider book has also been updated.

TESTIMONIAL: “I have been using the Sandlot Shrink since the early ‘90s and it has been instrumental in winning many baseball, football and basketball leagues over the years. The spring training news for baseball is by far the best information anywhere on the Net. I have been in a league of 18 teams that drafts a total of 500 players on our rosters for 15 years. With your help, I have finished in the prize money 10/15 years, which is remarkable with the competitiveness of my league. Your news and projections helped me win the first National Fantasy Baseball Championship . I always tell people your site is the best.” Artie Rastelli, Triple-A winner of the 2004 NFBC.
