Before we get started:

  1. This is the second run of my rankings for 2023 MLB Best Ball contests on Underdog. Eventually I'll be adding player notes and reworking the ranks as more analysis and research are conducted.

  2. My biggest takeaway entering The Dinger is that I don't necessarily want to be the first person in my draft to take a pitcher, but once the Strider/McClanahan/Verlander tier comes up I want to be taking SPs every couple of rounds (at least).

  3. Additional reading:

    3. Late-Round Pitchers Are a Trap

Reminder player notes coming soon!
