A.J and Joe are back and ready to roll. Today we are excited as we begin our 2016 Fantasy Baseball Position previews.
We start with the catchers. We all know about Buster Posey and even up and comer, Kyle Schwarber. But what can you expect from them and the other guys? When do you draft your catcher? How about single catcher vs. two catcher league? We cover that and more.
Next is the First Base preview. There are some real studs at this position, but this year feels like there is a lot less depth at the position than in recent years. Should you worry about Miguel Cabrera's injury history? Can Votto repeat last season? Is more decline expected for Albert Pujols?
We also give our sleepers and busts at each position as well.
As always call in or tweet us during the show @fantasysixpack (Joe) or @AppleGarthAlgar (A.J.) to give us your opinion or ask a question.
