SOELDEN, Austria -- The skier best known for crushing the overall World Cup points record and celebrating her victories with a cartwheeling handspring, announced her retirement.Two-time Olympic champion Tina Maze of Slovenia said on Thursday she will quit the sport after competing in one more race, a World Cup giant slalom on home soil in Maribor on Jan. 7.I am really happy with what Ive achieved. I dont feel the need to compete at such a high level anymore, Maze said.The Slovenian started her World Cup career with a GS in Maribor, as a 15-year-old in 1999.The four-time Olympians announcement was not unexpected.A few weeks after winning two gold medals at the 2015 world championships in Vail and Beaver Creek, Colorado, Maze was beaten for the overall title by Anna Veith, then competing under her maiden name, Fenninger. Maze took a year off from the slopes and got her degree in elementary education.The move prompted year-long speculation about her career, but Maze always kept all options open until announcing her decision two days before the World Cup season-opener on the Rettenbach glacier in Soelden on Saturday.I was always thinking about it, Maze said. I have a big motivation to compete one last time in front of my home crowd.Maribor will be her last World Cup, but Maze did not rule out defending her world downhill title in St. Moritz in February.Now I live by the day, Maze said, adding she will decide about a start in Switzerland in the weeks leading up to the championships. As the defending champion, she wouldnt have to qualify.Mazes rise to the top started in 2008 when she set up her own independent team, led by her Italian coach and boyfriend, Andrea Massi. They called it the Team to aMaze.Maze won her first of 13 medals at major championships the following year, taking GS silver at the worlds in Val dIsere, France. She added two more silver medals at the Vancouver Olympics the next year.Finishing fourth in the 2010 overall World Cup standings, Maze improved one spot each year and finally won the big crystal globe to cap a record-breaking season in 2013.Maze won 11 races that season, took the GS and super-G titles, and broke the overall World Cup points record in a single season. She beat the previous mark of 2,000, set by Austrian great Hermann Maier in 2000, by another 414 points.The same season, Maze also became only the sixth female skier to win events in all five Alpine disciplines, with American standout Lindsey Vonn the only other active achiever.Her World Cup results faded in the following season, but Maze went back to the top when she won Slovenias first ever gold medal at the Winter Olympics by sharing victory in the Sochi downhill with Dominique Gisin of Switzerland.At the moment it is not easy for me, Massi said, adding he was particularly proud of his girlfriend reaching the top of her sport without doping.Tina is the best proof to young athletes that you can become the best on normal food: Schnitzels, pasta, vegetables, and goulash soup.Known as a gritty competitor who doesnt try to hide her mood after not winning a race, Maze once said she becomes completely inaccessible when things are not going her way.That is just who I am. I certainly do not want to be rude, said Maze, who in 2012 displayed her singing talent by entering the charts in her home country.The song was fittingly named, My way is my decision.

Fantasy baseball has no such thing as an offseason.The 2016 regular season is scheduled to conclude Sunday, Oct. 2, or 11 days from now (plus any potential tiebreakers to decide playoff spots), and the playoffs 31 days later (if the World Series extends to seven games), but once the games are in the books -- and often sooner -- fantasy baseball owners begin analyzing next year.Well, championship-caliber fantasy owners do, at least. You can be sure that some of your competition is, and those are the owners who will have an advantage once spring training begins next February.Heres a good place to start: What follows below is my tri-annual Dynasty 250 rankings. They serve as a price guide of sorts for dynasty or keeper leagues, whether yours exists already or plans to start from scratch in 2017.The rankings formulaThe Dynasty 250 uses the following player valuation formula:2017 performance: 20 percent2018 performance: 20 percent2019 performance: 20 percent2020 performance: 20 percent2021 performance and beyond: 20 percentThe rationale for these weights is to provide a long-term projection of player values, in order to help fantasy owners in dynasty/keeper leagues who might be required to make critical roster decisions before the offseason arrives. For those in re-draft/single-year leagues, Ill have preliminary rankings for the 2017 season alone beginning next week, then updated regularly throughout the offseason. In addition, I -- and ESPN Fantasy as a whole -- will publish plenty of 2017 rankings, projections and profiles in the coming months to help you in your title quest next season. This page, however, is aimed at those fantasy owners who need to speculate further into the future.Remember that other factors influence these values, beyond simply your leagues scoring system. The list beelow is a starting point, but you need to do your own manual adjustments to account for the following:Number of keepers: How many players can you keep, and must every team keep the same number of players?Player pricing: Is your league draft or auction format, and do you keep players in the round they are picked, for the auction price paid, or are players simply kept without prices attached?Contract factors: Are there limits on the number of years you can keep a player and/or are there guaranteed contracts, and is there price inflation?Farm teams: Does your league include minor leaguers and how are these players factored into the keeper system?Team competitiveness: Are you a contender, rebuilder or something in between? At midseason a firm answer to this is much more crucial.ddddddddddddThe Dynasty 250Note: Position eligibility (Elig. Pos.) is projected for 2017 based on 2016 data through Sept. 20, and is determined based upon a minimum of 20 games or the position the player appeared at most often in 2016. Players projected future positions -- 2018 and beyond -- are considered in the ranking. Players listed ages are as of April 1, 2017.Players 2016 midseason (Mid 2016) and peak rankings in past keeper lists (Prv. Peak) are also provided: These lists have been published semiannually since 2010 and triannually since 2014, with preseason (Pre-), midseason (Mid) and end-of-season (End) designated to differentiate the different times of the years in question. For example, Johnny Cueto is listed with a peak of 55 in End 14, meaning that his best all-time rank was 55th, in the 2014 end-of-season list. A -- means that the player has never before made the top 250 cut.
