WTP Fantasy Baseball Rankings #251-350

Fantasy Baseball draft season is just about upon us and it is time to release my rankings for this season. Today’s post will be the back end of my Top 350, so all of you in 10 team leagues may not dip into much of this portion of the list. Those in 12 teamers may draft half the guys here and anyone in insane 14 team leagues(the E&L Money League for example) all of these players and more will be relevant in your draft.

254    Jair Jurrjens    SP
255    Luke Gregerson    RP
256    John Lackey    SP – .320 BAbip could mean a bounce back year with BoSox but don’t trust him until I see it.

272    Nyjer Morgan    OF

312    Jim Thome    DH – Won’t play everyday but will hit bombs when he does.
