I like Fantasy Football, and tolerate Fantasy Basketball, however I LOVE Fantasy Baseball.

I like tinkering with my lineups. Yes, I stream pitchers.  So I’m going to track the fantasy relevant M’s.

Robinson Cano:  As my 13-year-old, my 10-year-old, and NOW my 4-year-old says, duh.  I don’t think Safeco will affect his game much, if at all.  I buck the court of public opinion in that view. I would take him mid/late 1st anywhere from 9-12 overall in a standard 12 team H2H.

In the last five years Cano has 48, 41, 46, 48, and 41 doubles. In 2014:  .313 avg, 32 HR, 107 RBI, 42 doubles.

Felix Hernandez:  The King is 27, soon to be 28, nothing to suggest anything other than royalty.   I am a homer: Late 2nd/early 3rd (20-25 overall)  17-7/2.98 era/212 ip/215 k/1.12 whip.

Hisashi Iwakuma: I prefer to wait on pitching, I mentioned I stream.  I DID like Kuma in the early 8th (86-90 ovl) and I am trying not to panic.  15-5,/2.80/214 ip/180 k/1.00 whip.

Kyle Seager:  Coming into his prime, with some offensive help, I like him in the 9th (99=104) .270/24/90/88 runs

Brad Miller:  This is subject to change with the fluid Nick Franklin situation, but I like Miller as a viable SS option 10th round or later.   .318/15 HR/68 RBI/100 runs/40 doubles

Fernando Rodney:  Typically I wait on saves.  That said, I like the fire of “The Archer”, and I would take him anywhere from the 14th to the 15th (160-180)  5-2/3.30/40 saves/1.28 whip.

Sleeper: (For now…)  Taijuan Walker:  I am being cautiously optimistic about the shoulder soreness.  14-5/2.85/150 ip/140 k.

Free Agents:

Corey Hart:  If healthy:  .270/25 HR/75 RBI/ 90 runs

Logan Morrison:  Where will he play?  .250/20 HR/68 RBI/
