2018 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: STREET AND SMITH TOP 12 DEBATE

Like we did with the Lindy's Top Ten last week, we wanted to compare our top 12 to the Street and Smith (formerly Sporting News) list in their annual draft guide.  As a reminder, we had the following as our top 12:

1.  Mike Trout
2.  Jose Altuve
3.  Giancarlo Stanton
4.  Paul Goldschmidt
5.  Bryce Harper
6.  Aaron Judge
7.  Mookie Betts
8.  Carlos Correa
9.  Nolan Arenado
10. Charlie Blackmon
11. Kris Bryant
12. Joey Votto

So in terms of Street and Smith, here is what their top 12 looks like:

1.  Mike Trout
2.  Jose Altuve
3.  Bryce Harper
4.  Nolan Arenado
5.  Paul Goldschmidt
6.  Charlie Blackmon
7.  Trea Turner
8.  Clayton Kershaw
9.  Mookie Betts
10. Carlos Correa
11. Kris Bryant
12. Chris Sale

So like Lindy's list, Street and Smith have Trea Turner in their top 12 which we do not.  Again we always like to see a player put up first-round numbers before we ascend them there and that is why we kept Turner out despite his monster potential.  Also Street and Smith agreed with us having Betts in the first round which Lindy's did not.  We also have Bryce Harper as a top 10 guy which Street and Smith agreed with but Lindy's for some odd reason did not.  Finally, we have no pitchers in Round 1 as we continue to espouse not using a first-round pick on that group of player.  Kershaw is a supreme talent but he has been a bit injury prone the last two years and that makes him even more risky for 2018. So as always let us know who has the better list.  Post below. 


1. Mike Trout 2. Jose Altuve 3. Giancarlo Stanton 4. Paul Goldschmidt 5. Bryce Harper 6. Aaron Judge 7. Mookie Betts 8. Carlos Correa 9. Nolan Arenado 10. Charlie Blackmon
