Yahoos 2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings Ranklings

My esteemed colleagues at Yahoo have put out their 2018 fantasy baseball rankings. I think I'm using the word colleague incorrectly. Does colleague mean someone you're in a league with? Yes? No? Okay, let's move on. I might be using esteemed wrong too. Know what? We're moving on! The Yahoo 2018 fantasy baseball rankings are out; I'm sure about that after consulting with my hair stylist, Jeffrey, at SuperCuts. I said to Jeffrey (don't shorten it), "Do I have dandruff, Jeffrey?" Jeffrey, digging through my full, lustrous mane, "Why do you think this horrible thing, Mr. Grey?" I replied, "I saw how low Yahoo ranked Cody Bellinger and I began to demonically scratch my head." After a three-hour explanation of who Cody Bellinger was, what fantasy baseball is and the ins and outs of Yahoo fantasy baseball, Jeffrey responded, "That is not dandruff, Mr. Grey. I shaved my hair and donated it to a sculpture at Miami's Art Basel, and that Cody Bellinger ranking makes me scratch my head too." Thrilled I didn't have a disease of the dry scalp, I was still left puzzled by some of Yahoo's rankings. So, I figuredbe a Pisces and jam. For this post, I will be looking at the consensus Yahoo 2018 fantasy baseball rankings vs. my own 2018 fantasy baseball rankings.
