2018 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: HUMIDOR IN CHASE FIELD A MINOR BUMMER FOR PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT AND COMPANY

The humidor is spreading.  Following in the footsteps of the Colorado Rockies a few years ago, the Arizona Diamondbacks will install a humidor at Chase Field for the 2018 season.  A climate-controlled environment will be set up to house the team's baseballs and the humidor has been shown to negatively impact the distances that baseballs kept here travel.  In fantasy baseball terms, this is not such good news for any Diamondbacks slugger, with first baseman Paul Goldschmidt heading this list.  There are even further studies that have been done that the dry desert air in Arizona will hurt the distance the balls will travel even more than in Colorado and so that is another factor to be considered as well.  So while Goldy is still a top five pick overall in 2018 fantasy baseball, this big of news could help break the tie between him and say a Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper, or Giancarlo Stanton in the first round.  Yes the overall impact on Goldy may result in just a few homers and RBI being removed from his bottom line numbers but it is something to be aware of either way when it comes to drafts this spring.
