Key Stats: Last season was certainly a disappointing year for Jayson Werth, but more eyebrows were raised after he signed his 7 year $126 million contract than they were when he fell 195 spots in the rankings. Werth was supposed to come apart a little last year because of the pressure of the contract and his inflated 2010 season by the numbers. That 2010 season saw him have a .352 BABIP (about 30 points higher than his career BABIP) and saw him finish with a career high 45% fly ball rate as he moved from an above average home run hitting park to an average one.
Skeptics Say: Werth will be 33 in May. That’s officially past your prime as a ball player, so he will never come close to being a top twenty kind of player again. There also wasn’t really a stretch where Werth demonstrated he was capable of carrying a fantasy team last year. He did not hit over .300 in any month and did not hit more than 4 home runs in any month. If he gets hurt even for a two week time period this year, he will have a hard time achieving this preseason ranking. no comments
Unfortunately, Darvish is far from any pitcher that has been imported from Japan. He is, in many ways, in a class of his own.
2012 is well underway and FB365 is poised and ready to be your number one source of fantasy baseball analysis as we have been all year round since 2008. You’ll see many sites pop up over the next couple of months, some will re-launch in hopes of putting together enough content to satisfy the draft-prep crowd, but here at FB365, we’ve never slowed down, shut down, re-launched or succumb to any mode of complacency. We’ve been here for you non-stop since 2008. This is who we are: fantasy baseball, all year long.
As you may have noticed we have three new and extremely talented writers on board, all of which have years of experience both playing and writing about fantasy baseball.

We’re currently cranking out player projections, prospect and keeper rankings as well as chiming in on any breaking hot stove news. Come February, we will begin pouring out our comprehensive positional rankings, providing multiple mock draft analysis articles and begin to look at some in-depth draft day strategy.
In other words: we’ve got it covered.Thanks for reading, whether you’ve been along for the ride since the beginning, come on board a bit later or are just checking us out for the first time. Draft day is right around the corner and we couldn't be more excited about the 2012 season!
