Normally, the term "first base" is synonymous with "failure" for handsome soothsayers like myself. Yet when we are talking fantasy baseball, the word takes on a more positive connotation. First base is deep, always has been.
Sure the league-wide drop in power over the past few years has affected the position, but if you adjust your expectations for today’s HR production, first base remains the most power-heavy position (and it’s not even close).
Of course, the position remains chock full of overrated options and profit-netting players. Fortunately, your boy Big Poppa Pockets has gotcha covered.
Oh, and if you are wondering why Joe Mauer and Miguel Cabrera aren’t on the list… well, if you plan on starting either of them at first base instead of at catcher and third, then you need to stop reading this article and quit fantasy sports. Seriously, at this point, it’s just a waste of my time and yours.
