I did notice on the right tail of the chart it says BAL 29th before PIT but in the text of the story it has the Pirates ahead of us.

For AL Only leagues, Richie Martin is skyrocketing following Escobar's release though - is anyone else at all going to play SS for us this year?

CF - 23!    

I noticed Mullins is getting drafted in fantasy this year. CF must be really weak.

Just added RF (27th) and starting pitching (30th).

I liked their comment on Joey Rickard: “He is mostly there because it is frowned upon not to field a full nine.”

Orrrrrr he's perhaps not as terrible--with the book on him shut--as some around here would claim?

Rule 4.17: A game shall be forfeited to the opposing team when a team is unable or refuses to place nine players on the field.

These rankings suggest an exciting race for MVO, with the dynamic OF trio of Mancini, Mullins and Rickard the pre-season favorites (especially with Hays out of the picture for a while) -- but that's not including some of the outstanding pitchers we'll be seeing. 

Play Ball, I guess.

Finally:  bullpen, 20th.   Our best showing at any spot.    https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2019-positional-power-rankings-bullpen-no-16-30/

The Orioles' bullpen is not good.  Does anyone actually believe the pen will be better than the Red Sox?  I think this shows the limitations of using cumulative WAR for bullpen predictions.  They'd probably be better off ranking everyone by some combination of K rate and K:BB ratio.

How often can you do that before they call you out for tanking?

Fangraphs has started a daily post on positional rankings at the different positions.    I guess nobody is surprised that the Orioles were ranked 30th at 1B yesterday, with Davis occupying the position.    But I was somewhat surprised to see the O’s also ranked 30th at 2B today.    They’re projecting us at a collective 1.0 fWAR at 2B, led by Villar at 0.9.

2B — 30th https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2019-positional-power-rankings-second-base/

Yeah, this analysis didn’t age very well.

It was probably better than the bullpen ranking #20th in the Fangraphs poll, but might not be in the top 50 bullpens in all professional baseball.  They said 20th, the O's said "Ha!  We're going to allow the most runs of any bullpen ever!"
