2017 RECAP

Record: 59 - 64

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion lived up to their billing and raked all year. Joey Bats stayed healthy and posted this sweet line of fantasy goodness: 35 HRs, 103 RBIs, 101 Runs and an OBP of .401. Double E was not as good but still pretty darn good, smacking 34 HRs, knocking in 98 and registering a .354 OBP.

What Has Changed?

Quite a lot has changed including Josh Donaldson arriving from Oakland to take over 3B from Brett Lawrie and Michael Saunders arriving from Seattle to attempt to replace Melky Cabrera (snarky comment: good luck with that). The closer role remains up in the air. Russell Martin will catch whoever does close and Dalton Pompey will attempt to make the jump to the big leagues and win the everyday job in center field.

What to Expect:

Expect what has become common in Toronto. They will hit and get hit. Joey Bats and Double E will rake (though I do not Expect Joey to hit for nearly that average or post nearly as neat an OBP). R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle will continue to be valuable innings eaters but way overrated in fantasy baseball and Marco Estrada will not enjoy pitching in the bandbox ballparks of the AL East.

This Year’s Surprise:

Russell Martin will disappoint many a fantasy owner. Not only will he do the human nature thing and press to demonstrate he is worth his big contract, he will simply come back to earth and be the player he was from 2010 to 2013 when his batting average never even reached .250 (he hit a shocking .290 in 2014). In 2015, Martin will no longer be playing for the payday and will not be able to post a BABIP 50 points higher than his career average and almost 100 points over the average of the three preceding years. Regression is coming.
