FN Fantasy Projections Are So Far A Mixed Bag

Last February, the fantasy sports website FanDuel asked a range of sports blogs to pick their 2014 fantasy baseball options by position. We were honored to be asked to participate in the FanDuel survey. Here were our positional picks back in February: C: Buster Posey; 1B: Paul Goldschmidt; 2B: Dustin Pedroia; 3B, Manny Machado; SS, Xander Bogaerts; OF: Mike Trout; Bryce Harper; Carlos Gonzalez; SP: Clayton Kershaw; RP: Koji Uehara. We'd give ourselves an "A" on: Kershaw, Trout, Posey and Goldschmidt; a "B" on  Machado, Pedroia and Uehara; and a Gentleman's "C" on Bogaerts, Gonzalez and Harper. Not bad—but a mixed bag.
