Karablog: Fantasy baseball going mad over Vlad

Fantasy managers will have to hope that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. gets used to playing at a new position in 2020. AP

Kudos to the Toronto Blue Jays for realizing that future Hall of Fame slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. -- and yes, I expect his induction sometime around 2042 -- simply is not a passable third baseman. He will move to first base, or combine that role with designated hitter duties. Guerrero underachieved at the plate as a rookie, but that happens to plenty of folks. Defensively, he was poor with little hope of significant improvement. And while I generally loathe acknowledging this, perhaps it did affect him at the plate. Just let the slugger slug.
