Spring training isn’t just for, you know, training. Some of these guys are actually competing for something.
Jobs, I mean.
And while the players competing for jobs aren’t exactly Fantasy mainstays — not for the most part, anyway — some of them have the upside to become just that, making these position battles well worth monitoring.
Specifically, these position battles.
They’re the 30 you should care about … well, unless you have some sort of sickness and can’t help but care about all of them, which is sort of true for me. But then, I play in some really deep leagues.
I’m drawing the line at 30 because the fact is position battles are sort of a word-of-mouth thing anyway. Not every one is so distinctly defined. Some managers talk like every job is up for grabs, which is absurd.
