Fantasy Baseball Dugout’s 2012 Rankings
The season is upon us once again – and the time has come to get ready for fantasy baseball. Without further adu, it’s time to debut the 2012 fantasy baseball rankings from Fantasy Baseball Dugout.
Ranking the players for 2012 fantasy baseball seems eerily similar to how the rankings began the last three seasons… with Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols at the top. To be fair – he wouldn’t have the throne for a fourth straight year if it wasn’t for Ryan Braun’s 50-game suspension. Anyhow, in 2011, Pujols hit .299 with 37 home runs, 118 RBI, 115 runs and 14 steals. And even though he has changed teams – because of his historic consistency, you better take The Machine first overall in any mixed-league or AL-only draft in 2012.
