Spring Training has hit the halfway point, and we're starting to get an idea of what to expect for fantasy baseball in 2013.
To give you an idea of what the player rankings currently look like, we're bringing you this mock draft. But before you dive in, here are two points to keep in mind.
1. This mock was run through CBS Sports, and it was set up as a 5X5 rotisserie, 10 team league.
To spare you some time, we're covering just the first 10 rounds in depth. The final slide is a summary of interesting takeaways from the final 14 round.
2. The player rankings were much more favorable towards hitters. Keep in mind that you should expect pitchers to go a little sooner than they did in this mock.
As an example, Jon Lester wasn't picked until the final round. Yes, he had setbacks in 2012, but not enough to justify that big a dip in stock. So keep in mind that overall pitchers deserve more respect.
there seems to be some confusion, and that's on me. I was just one of these 10 teams (pick No. 2 in odd rounds, pick No. 9 in even rounds). I should have made that clearer.
That is why I tried my best to point out which picks were absurd, and which were a little too good to be true. Sorry for the confusion folks, and hope this helps to clear things up.
