Over the next week or so we will be releasing teasers of our staff consensus rankings with the hopes that you will break the bank and purchase our 2013 Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit to see the full versions, and more importantly, show us your support.
Thanks in advance.
Here are the second basemen we have ranked 10-14, guys who will be options at the 2B and middle infield slots in shallower leagues.
10. Danny Espinosa | 2B | WAS
Espinosa will provide some nice value as the tenth second baseman off the board. He’s coming off of back-to-back seasons in which he appeared in at least 158 games, scored 72+ runs, clubbed 17 long balls and swiped 17 bags. Espinosa’s batting average leaves a bit (or a lot?) to be desired (.241 over the last two seasons), and the perpetual strikeouts could be a disaster in the making for those in points leagues. But, with a current ADP of 106 and the possibility of carrying multiple position eligibility, Espinosa could mak...

I love spring training
It is a time speculation and expert opinion about what the coming year will look like, where the M’s will place in their division and what players will make the 40 man roster for opening day.
It is a chance to see the possibilities of the future as the Mariners prospects play alongside the veterans.
What is bad about spring training are the skewed stats that...
The Seattle Mariners walked through every door and jumped through every hoop that they had to.
By the end of last-minute elbow evaluations and the like, they ensured that their $175 million investment in pitcher Felix Hernandez was a wise one.
On Wednesday both Hernandez and the team made the pact official and he is now the highest paid pitcher in the history...
M’s make headlines
It’s been a crazy week for the Mariners, and things reached an apex Wednesday. Here’s the big headlines from Seattle’s exciting day.
Seattle finalizes deal with King Felix
After some minor bumps in the road, the Seattle Mariners have finalized a contract extension with ace pitcher Felix Hernandez.
It was originally reported early last week that the Mariners...
An elbow “issue” was reportedly behind the delayed and ultimately adjusted agreement reached between the Seattle Mariners and
right-hander Felix Hernandez. While this unknown ailment that was discovered
during Hernandez’s MRI following the initial agreement, the former Cy Young
Award winner has now received a clean bill of health from team doctors, general
The Seattle Mariners designated Mike Carp for assignment
recently, and the Boston Red Sox could be interested in acquiring the
outfielder/first baseman, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.
Carp was designated for assignment by the Mariners to make
room on their roster for left-hander Joe Saunders.
Carp showed promise in 2011, hitting .276/.326/.466 with...
The Yankees exiled 23-year-old OF Abraham Almonte to Seattle yesterday for pitcher Shawn Kelley, a 28-year-old bullpen cotter pin who been designated for assignment, leaving the Mariners near zero leverage in cutting another sweet Jesus deal. It's hard to spin these sub-atomic particle movements, which can only be seen through River Ave electron microscopes, or the Scranton Tribune...
R.I.P. Danny Espinosa's beard. Video of Danny shaving his beard via MLB.com. We hardly knew ya. At least we still have Ian Desmond's mustache and Jayson Werth's beard. Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.

Washington Nationals’ second baseman Danny Espinosa had a decent season in 2012 (except for those NL-leading strikeouts). Unfortunately, Espinosa and Washington packed away their Nattitude for the year after blowing Game 5 to the Cardinals in the National League Division Series. It was a crappy ending for the team with baseball’s best record in the regular...
Our team previews star in the northwest of the US where the weather says baseball is still months away, but I believe the calendar. The Seattle Mariners represent a bit of what I love about baseball. Perpetual hope. They might not be the best now, but they have plenty of young talent that make the future look brighter.
Let’s do a run down of the Mariners.
