Second Base Preview 2.0 (06/30 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
So, uhh, about second base. It's not the greatest position, which gives us even more reason to break it down! Because of how shallow it is, do we find ourselves reaching at the position? We won't normally hit news and notes on position previews but it's worth mentioning the four players who have already opted out of the 2020 season (3:50 ). ... Onto the "elite" tier at second base where we find Gleyber Torres, Jose Altuve, Ozzie Albies, and Ketel Marte (8:02 ). Why are people shying away from Altuve? Will Gleyber crush the Orioles again? ... Amidst talking about Albies, Scott struck up a conversation regarding "safe" players vs. streaky players in a shortened season (19:56 ). Should you target more of the high-upside, streaky hitters? ... Rounds four and five at second base are mostly filled with veterans... and Keston Hiura (24:40 ). Should Hiura be part of the elite tier? What do Merrifield, Villar, and LeMahieu have left in the tank? ... Sleepers, breakouts, and busts at second base (37:06 )! Is this finally the year for Garrett Hampson? Is Cavan Biggio a breakout or a bust? ... Back to ADP, the mid-range is filled with Max Muncy, Jeff McNeil, and Mike Moustakas (51:05 ). Is McNeil a poor man's DJ LeMahieu? ... Rounds 10-13 are filled with Eduardo Escobar, Cavan Biggio, Tommy Edman, and Gavin Lux (54:30 ). Who is the real Escobar? How much will Lux play this season? ... We wrap things up with the late-round options at the position (59:30 )! ... Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
