This is a list that examines the league’s 100 best players heading into the season – as voted on by the other players.

Evaluating Hall of Fame Odds for 10 Active Major League Pitchers

Embed from Getty Images This isn’t your father’s Hall of Fame. At least not for starting pitchers. There’s a good chance no pitcher will again crack the 300-win plateau, a mark that has been achieved 24 times throughout the sport’s history. Even 250 wins is a rare accomplishment at this point.

SwartzSports 2017 Mock Draft with Trades

Embed from Getty Images   Mock drafts are fun, but you know what is even more fun? A mock draft with trades. Trades happen, and to pretend that no team will trade out of its spot is irrational. That’s why I included a handful of them in here.
