Is Edwin Encarnacion Finally for Real This Time?

Posted by on May 10, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

Edwin Encarnacion, the designated hitter for the Toronto Blue Jays who is also qualified in many fantasy leagues as a first baseman and third baseman, has gotten off to a roaring start in fantasy baseball 2012, making him one of the top players in the game right now. In the first month of the season, Edwin Encarnacion hit .322, with 8 homers, 21 RBI, and 4 stolen bases, which makes him a fantasy baseball player’s dream. He was one of the fantasy baseball sleepers this year, because Edwin Encarnacion has not exactly been highly touted. So what is the deal with Edwin Encarnacion? Is he worth keeping for the long haul in fantasy baseball 2012? Or is he one of the fantasy baseball sleepers who may only be hot for the short term? It is hard to say, but...

Swinging Around The Rogers Centre with Yu Darvish

Posted by on May 6, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

When we came out in preseason touting Yu Darvish thanks to watching YouTube videos of his pitching in Japan, many of you were skeptical that Darvish would rank as high as the 15th best pitcher in the league. So, we decided to see for ourselves and crossed the border to see Darvish pitch against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, April 30.  Darvish’s performance, much to the delight of the largely Asian audience, was superb and Yu ran his record to 4-0 on the year and his ERA dropped to 2.18.  Based on Darvish’s 2012 stats, at least so far, Darvish is living up to our expectations.  The only ding on  Darvish has been his control.  His 17 walks in 33 innings contribute to a less than stellar 1.42 WHIP on the year.  The key for Darvish is that...

Week 5 Two Start Pitcher Rankings

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...

Bargain Basement Pickups

Posted by on Apr 28, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Here’s some bargain basements pickups for National League teams.  These are guys that are likely available in deep NL-only leagues that show some promise (well at least a little) and might be worthy of a flyer on a free agent pickup.   Eric Young, Jr., OF, Colorado Rockies  — All Eric Young Jr. will do for you is steal bases, but he’s actually quite good at it.  He has 4 SB’s already this year and amassed 27 in just 77 games last year.   Chris Johnson, 3B, Houston Astros  — Johnson is starting every day for the Astros at third.  He doesn’t anything very well for fantasy, but he is hitting .273 on the year so he won’t hurt you at the plate if injury forces him into your lineup at the corner position.   Ruben Tejada, SS, New...

Baseball’s Top Performers Of April 2012

Posted by on Apr 23, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Two weeks into the baseball season and already tons to discuss. I always state that at this early juncture the sample size is too small to make meaningful conclusions, i.e look at Josh Willingham’s .419/.514/.871 stat line. Having said that, my friends usually don’t miss an opportunity to harp on me and state that they are still putting up these numbers, no matter if they’ve only had 30 at-bats. So going in this direction, I will discuss some of the big standouts from the first two weeks of the baseball season, even if the sample size is too small. Matt Kemp, Los Angeles Dodgers Looks like Kemp is wasting no time attempting to fulfill his prediction of a 50/50 season. He is the driving force behind the Dodgers 9-1 record, mashing six balls out of the park. On the...
