Week 2 Two Start Pitchers

Posted by on Apr 10, 2011 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Editor’s Note: Arrived at Fantasy Baseball Dugout looking for the current week’s rankings for two start pitchers? Click here. 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. Some leagues don’t allow such activity by limiting the number of player adds you can make each week. 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!

Home Run Production Decreases

Posted by on Apr 1, 2011 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball | 0 comments

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the Decline of the Dinger and how it is even more important to select power in your fantasy baseball draft.  It seems as though the guys over at the USA’s largest newspaper USA Today must have been listening as it did a similar article of its own. Home Runs — Tale of the Tape Home Runs Per Team Per Game 2000 — 1.17 2001 — 1.12 2002 — 1.04 2003 — 1.07 2004 — 1.12 2005 — 1.03 2006 — 1.11 2007 — 1.02 2008 — 1.00 2009 — 1.04 2010 — 0.95 Interestingly, when you look at the stats by league, it’s the American League that showed the big power shortage in 2010.  The AL saw its home runs per team per game drop from 1.13 to 0.97 from 2009 to 2010. ...

Final 2011 Spring Training Cheat Sheet

Posted by on Mar 29, 2011 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Rankings | 0 comments

Below is our final 2011 review of the top three hitters and pitchers in each standard 5×5 fantasy baseball category during 2011 Spring Training… even though we’re in the middle of the third week of Spring Training. Judging a hitter or pitcher on Spring Training performance is difficult because both hitters and hurlers tend to face some competition that won’t make an Opening Day roster. Spring Training stats can be useful in discovering who might breakout in the upcoming season or which rookies can make an impact when they are called up later in the year. In the case of sluggers like Ryan Howard, Spring Training numbers just reinforce the notion that they are warm weather superstars – guys who dominate during the summer months and are notorious slow starters because they play in a four-season climate. Any thoughts...

What You’ll Pay, Where You Play

Posted by on Mar 28, 2011 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

By Jon J. Simmons, guest contributor to Fantasy Baseball Dugout Let’s face it, in an attempt to bring fantasy baseball to the masses, online fantasy baseball leagues had to present information to help prevent the casual fantasy player from feeling lost. Thus, every online draft program now has numbers next to every player like average draft position, average auction value, and projected stats. Inevitably, these numbers are self-fulfilling prophecies as team managers use these number staring them in the face to make decisions as the clock ticks down. This creates a new variable that every manager needs to be aware of. For instance, if the drafting window says that Carl Pavano is the best player left and Team 9 needs a pitcher, what are the chances that Pavano gets an extra long look? We call this venue value. Even...
