Fantasy Baseball 2012: Top 60 Fantasy Baseball Players

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera (30 HRs, 105 RBIs, 111 runs, .344 BA last year) is a strong choice for the No. 1 pick in mixed- and AL-only leagues.

I want to leave room for reader hate mail here, so I'll keep this introduction and explanation to the top 60 fantasy baseball players relatively brief. I factored in three components of assessment when compiling and prioritizing the list: 1) My personal picks for the top players at each position (which can be found throughout this blog); 2) Average daft position value from; and 3) The average slots for the last 10 mock drafts I've participated in, dating back to March 5.

Was this a perfect means for creating a painfully subjective list? Probably not. But it'll certainly help the fantasy owner who can ignore the minutiae of specific rankings (Miguel Cabrera, Jacoby Ellsbury, Cliff Lee and Carlos Santana come to mind), and focus on landing at least eight of the top 60 in 12-team, mixed-league drafts. To sing a popular refrain from previous blog entries: Good drafting, regardless of scoring rules, is always about getting great value at every turn.
