Trout Wins POY and ROY From Baseball America

Posted by on Oct 16, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders | 0 comments

Editor’s Note: This was a press release sent to us by the good folks at Baseball America. Turns out they love Mike Trout. We don’t blame them. Baseball America is running out of ways to recognize Mike Trout’s greatness. Just one year after he was BA’s Minor League Player of the Year, Trout grabbed a place in the Los Angeles Angels’ outfield and showed he’ll be a star there for years to come, winning Baseball America’s 2012 Major League Player of the Year Award as well as its 2013 Rookie of the Year Award. While Albert Pujols has won both the BA Rookie of the Year and Major League Player of the Year awards, no one else has ever won both awards in the same year. Such were the accomplishments of Trout, who hit .326/.399/.564 and played a stellar center...

Fantasy Stretch Run Pickup: Trevor Bauer

Posted by on Aug 23, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Like many fantasy baseball sites, we’ve been talking about Trevor Bauer of the Diamondbacks for some time now.  Now, it looks like Bauer will get another chance to show the electric stuff that everybody has been talking about. Bauer had a rude welcome to the MLB.  In 16.1 IP’s, he walked too many (14) and had an ERA above 6.  The WHIP was 1.65 before getting demoted on July 17.  But, Bauer’s move to the MLB was simply too quick for the 21-year-old.  Bauer pitched only 8 games at Triple-A Reno before the D-Backs came calling.  And, Bauer was struggling with a groin injury during his abbreviated 4 starts in Arizona. Bauer’s resume is impressive.  He was the third pick in the draft last year.  He won the Golden Spikes award as the best player in college baseball while...

Andrew McCutchen 8-1 Longshot In 2012 Home Run Derby

Posted by on Jul 9, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders | 0 comments

If you pull up the first-half player rankings of all batters in Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball today, you’ll see that the current no. 1 overall player heading into the All-Star break is none other than Pittsburgh Pirates OFer Andrew McCutchen. Cutch hit two home runs on Sunday and went 3-for-5 at the plate against the Giants. His current 5×5 stat line reads .362/18/60/58/14. On Sunday, Cutch was named as a replacement participant in the 2012 Home Run Derby to replace Giancarlo Stanton, who injured his knee on Saturday and will be out for 4-to-6 weeks. Despite being the no. 1 overall fantasy baseballer heading into the break, and also despite having only one less home run than Stanton heading into the break, McCutchen’s current odds to win tonight’s Home Run Derby still stand at 8-1. At post time, he’s officially...

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. 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! 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...
