The fantasy baseball draft season is upon us and tonight we get the first of the big experts league draft results from the LABR Experts AL-Only league draft. Yes, the LABR, or League of Alternative Baseball Reality, draft take place this evening at 7pm ET in Arizona.
The LABR drafts, along with the upcoming Tout Wars drafts, serve as the benchmark for auction values for auction drafts. I know the owners in my oldest NL-only league use these auction values almost to the dollar every year. Other leagues I participate in have so much inflation, these auction values aren't as helpful.
The experts participating in tonights draft are as follows:
Brandon Funston*, Yahoo
Tristan Cockcroft,* ESPN
Greg Ambrosius/Shawn Childs, NFBC
Larry Schechter, Winning Fantasy Baseball
Perry Van Hook, Mastersball
Nick Minnix, KFFL.com
Chris Liss, Rotowire
Rick Wolf/Glenn Colton, Full Moon Sports
Steve Gardner, USA TODAY Sports
Dave Adler, Baseball HQ
Ray Flowers,* SiriusXM
Eno Sarris,** Fangraphs
You can follow the results live on rtsports.com. I will post my thoughts on the draft tomorrow morning.
