I know spring stats don't really matter, but I still find myself looking at boxscores over the course of the spring, always keeping an eye on just how some of the former member of the Toronto Blue Jays are doing these days.
Thanks to baseballreference.com, spring stats are easier to find, with the site using a new tool to determine the quality of opposing pitcher or batters faced.
Here's a look at how a few former Toronto Blue Jays are doing this spring.
11-for-31, .423/.452/.923, 4 HR, 11 RBI, OppQual 9.0
Aaron Hill (D'Backs)

With your fantasy draft just around the corner, the debate on who just go number one in reagrds to the starting pitchers is a good one.
Any one of these guys in the top ten listed below would be a great choice, but the top four, Verlander, Kershaw, Strasburg or "King Felix" are realistically the pitchers that will give you the advantage you are looking for all season.
Surprisginly, when it comes to fantasy, Greinke and Dickey are ranked as the 14th and 15th best picthers, but taking them in the second round is not out of the question.
One pitcher I would consider taking early is Blue Jays' Brandon Morrow. Starting on night's after teams get the knuckleball of R.A. Dickey will give him a huge advantage. His fastball will look at least five mph faster to hitters after the hitters struggle to hit the knuckleball.
A review of the prior composite rankings:

Mike Trout is a name you will hear over and over when it comes to a projected number overall pick in fantasy baseball in 2013. Unless you were one of the lucky ones who drafted him last season in a keeper league, or found a way to steal him off the waiver wire before his call up by the Angels in April,the decision to draft him first shouldn't really be a tough decision.
Even after looking at the composite rankings, where we found Braun and Trout tied as the top outfielder, go with Trout as your pick, you almost have to.
In just 139 games in 2012, Trout hit .326 with 129 runs scored, 30 home runs 89 RBI and 49 stolen bases. These numbers are just going to get better, making him a 5x5 roto fantasy player that deserves the number one selection for outfielders, and overall for that matter.
After Trout, Braun is solid choice with Kemp, McCutchen and Carlos Gonzalez rounding out the top 5. For Jays fans, Jose Bautista's wrist appears to be fine, and ranks 6th in the rankings, tied with the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton.
To date, we have looked at the composite rankings for
Now let's look at the outfield rankings:

Who's the best shortstop in the major league's today? We may not be able to answer that question today, but from a fantasy standpoint, it looks like we may be close.
Even after missing significant time due to injury the past few seasons, Troy Tulowitzki leads all shortstops in the composite rankings, but many owners may stay away from him this season, and instead, take a chance on Ramirez or Reyes.
To be honest, Reyes and the Jays are in store for a pretty special season, so Reyes looks to be the pick here.
To date, we've covered the catchers, first baseman, second baseman and third baseman.
Now we take a look at the shortstops:
|Troy Tulowitzki (COL)||2||1||1||2||1.5|
|Hanley Ramirez (LAD)||1||2||3||4||2.5|
|Jose Reyes (TOR)||4||3||2||1||2.5|

Your fantasy draft is probably a few weeks away, but it's never early to start looking at rankings.
To date we've covered catchers, first baseman and second baseman.
Now we take a look a third base, where Cabrera is hands down the cream of the crop, but after that, it's anyone's guess who should go next. With A-Rod out until after the All-Star break, David Wright and Adrian Beltre move into the spot once held by A-Rod. Brett Lawrie, ranked the 10th best in these rankings, will be solid pick if you can get him.
|Miguel Cabrera (DET)||1||1||1||1||1|
|Evan Longoria (TB)||4||3||2||5||3.5|
|David Wright (NYM)||2||4||6||2||3.5|

With spring games now underway, here's a quick review of some of the new homes for some former Blue Jays.
From a fantasy perspective, most of these guys can be looked as players you may want near the end of your drafts.
Overbay is looking to secure a spot on the Red Sox roster in 2013, but the addition of Mike Carp from the Mariners might put a damper on that plan. He may still end up as the starter in Milwaukee, so watch those developments over the spring.
Expect a .260 average, ten home runs and around 60 RBI. A good back up if you run into injuries with your starting shortstop.

With the start of spring training just days away, the beginning of a new season of fantasy baseball is upon us.
The much anticipated return of Yahoo! fantasy baseball has arrived.
New features include continuous waivers, new pitching stats (saves + holds) (Net saves + holds: saves + holds - blown saves) and an improved app for iPhone and Android , which comes in handy more than you realize all season.
Something that I noticed in the early going after looking through the players is the first base eligibility for Miguel Cabrera has been eliminated in Yahoo! This season, he's just listed as a third baseman.
You almost knew this was going to happen after playing only two games at first in 2012 compared to 154 at third base. I believe you must play at least 10 games to keep the eligibility at a position, so failing to do so may change your drafting plans a bit.
Cabrera, who is in the same conversation with Mike Trout for the first overall pick in 2013, is now in competition with the likes of Adrian Beltre, Evan Longoria and David Wright at third for the coming season.
Obviously having Cabrera is a good thing offensively. The Triple Crown winner hit .330 with 44 home runs and 139 with 109 runs scored. The difference this year with Cabrera is the fact you can now have Cabrera and possibly Prince Fielder or Mark Teixeira on your squad if the pool you're in allows one player for each position.

Well, here we go!
I made a promise the blog would soon turn to a fantasy blog, and after a few weeks off, it is finally here.
I know most fantasy baseball sites are still not up (Yahoo!) but some deadlines set by commissioners for keeper players are just around the corner.
Since it's never too early in the off-season to talk fantasy, we start out composite series with a look at the catchers.
