A quick Google search for Fantasy Baseball Rankings returns 21 million results. There is one from Yahoo! and FantasyPros, ESPN, Rotoworld, even one from the good folks here at Crackerjacks. Everyone has one and there are draft rankings everywhere. So how do you decided which one is best for you, and what do you do with it?
You need to understand that Draft Rankings is that they are not one-size-fits all. Each list is composed by some combination of either last year’s fantasy performance, pre-season projections for 2013, and the authors gut-feeling about particular players.

On Wednesday, Minnesota Twins power-hitting left fielder Josh Willingham was spotted patrolling the outfield at the team’s spring training facility in Fort Meyers, Fla., but in this instance, he wasn’t practicing his fielding or shagging fly balls. Instead, according to a Pioneer Press report, Willingham was pushing a lawnmower while outfitted in “a flowery pink house dress...
The Minnesota Twins finished 2012 with the worst record, 66-96, in the American League. They ranked 28th in baseball with a team ERA of 4.77 and their staff finished dead last in all of baseball with 943 strikeouts.

Ryan O’Rourke isn’t as talented as some of his 2012 teammates, nor is his future as bright as many of the hitters he faced in the Midwest League. The Minnesota Twins pitching prospect is realistic about his strengths and weaknesses, with no illusions of becoming the next Frank Viola. He does, however, intend to pitch in the big leagues.

The Minnesota Twins have historically prided themselves on having a strong farm system. Now, Minnesota's minor leaguers rank among the best in baseball.
Baseball America unveiled its Top 100 prospects list Tuesday, and the Twins had six players make the list. That included two players in the top 10, as third baseman Miguel Sano and outfielder Byron Buxton checked in at Nos....
Carl Pavano has placed his Palm Beach Gardens, FL house on the market for $3 million. The 37-year old righty went from being a back-to-back opening day starter for the Twins in 2011 and 2012 to not even being in baseball this year. Time to sell!
That 4-year, $40 million deal he signed with the Yankees back in 2004 seems so far away.
2013 has not been kind to pitcher Carl Pavano...
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Vance Worley managed to become a fan favorite in Philadelphia despite pitching on a staff that included Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels.
Now with the Minnesota Twins, the 25-year-old Californian will have a chance to stand out again. In fact, he could end up being the team's opening day starter.
