Fantasy Baseball Ace Jake Peavy On DL

Posted by on May 22, 2008 in Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

The San Diego Padres have been killing fantasy owners all season with their lack of run support for their A-list pitching staff. This week, their team’s overall fantasy value took a major hit when fantasy baseball ace Jake Peavy landed on the 15-day DL. On the year, Peavy was 4-3 with a 2.91 ERA with 60 strikeouts and 20 walks in 58.7 innings of work. His season WHIP is 1.16. Despite his great numbers, Peavy has lost three of his last four starts. Peavy was placed on the DL retroactive to May 15, so he is eligible to take the mound on May 30 at AT&T Park against the San Francisco Giants. There is no structural damage, so at best he will miss only two starts. Considering Peavy was the 2007 Fantasy Baseball Cy Young winner, FBD will definitely...

Posted by on Apr 7, 2008 in Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

If you need something to look forward to at your desk during those dull spring and summer Mondays , your friends at Fantasy Baseball Dugout hope you consider our weekly blog posts chronicling fantasy baseball’s Players of the Week. The award criteria are pretty simple. Start with a standard 5×5 league. The top hitter and top pitcher based on typical 5×5 statistics over a typical weekly scoring period (Monday – Sunday) win the awards. Now, onto the hardware… Hitter of the Week: Xavier Nady, OF, Pittsburgh Pirates. Nady tends to hit well during the first month of the season and then level off by June, finishing the year as your average waiver wire, fill-in stud in mixed leagues. Week 1 was a special week for Nady, however, as he batted .385 with 10 hits in 26 at-bats. Nady also...

Using Fantasy Baseball To Cast A ‘Final Vote’

Posted by on Jul 2, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Rankings | 0 comments

Now that the 17-starters have been selected for the 2012 All-Star Game and the useless Home Run Derby fan vote is over with… there’s still time to vote for two more All-Stars. 5 AL and 5 NL players have been selected for the All-Star Final Vote. If you voted with your heart and not with your head (looking at you, Kung Fu Panda-voters) for the ASG starters, the time is now to use the roto-side of your brain to select the most-deserving players for the Final Vote. If you think about it, there really isn’t a better way to vote for All-Stars then by using the simple logic of fantasy baseball. If you scroll position by position in your league’s player rankings, it’s very cut and dry who rightfully deserves to be voted an All-Star, each year. Past performance...

Are you two-start pitcher streaming? If not, you’re likely missing out on a great opportunity to increase your weekly strikeout total, win total, log more innings pitched, and potentially lower your team ERA and WHIP in head to head leagues that allow daily lineup changes.

However, if you can find a loophole in your league settings and add/drop pitchers all season long – you’re going to have a great chance to win the whole thing come September! For the fifth consecutive season, we will be tracking two start pitchers to make sure you always win your pitching categories. That way, if you consistently lose strikeouts each week – you can find someone who can help you in that category in a...

Waiver Wire Gem: Philip Humber

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011 in Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

On Monday night, Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Phillip Humber held the Yankees hitless until the 7th inning. Humber, once a third round draft pick, was dealt in the February 2008 deal that sent Johan Santana to the Mets.  He didn’t pitch very well for the Twins and was waived by two teams, the A’s and the Royals, this off-season.  The Pale Hose picked up Humber as somewhat of an after-thought. As for now, Humber is the starting pitcher replacement for Jake Peavy.  “We said when Peavy went down, Phil has great stuff,” catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. “There’s a reason he was the overall third pick, and he can do it. He’s just got to throw strikes and believe in himself. Every start he’s been good.” Was the Yankees start a fluke?  Humber pitched 7 innings against the Orioles tonight...
