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...

Best Fantasy Baseball Tips

Posted by on Apr 22, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

We asked for fantasy baseball tips from some of the experts out there and came up with a lot of great tips for you.  Here’s just a few of our favorites. Everyone tries to build a solid foundation with their first pick, but astute fantasy players go beyond that to build a rock-solid foundation.  My LABR League partner Shawn Childs advocates that you shold try to get 75 Home Runs and 75 Stolen Bases with your first three picks.  The NFBC’s $100,000 champion, Lindy Hinkelman, takes it one step further by trying for 100 HRs and 100 SBs with his first four offensive picks, while taking two top Starting Pitchers among his first six picks.  Who am I to argue with those solid fantasy players?  I’m going with balance on offense and a rock-solid starting rotation with my first...

Posted by on Apr 20, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball 101, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Many fantasy baseball leagues implement Free Agent Acquisition Budgets (FAAB) as a way to level the playing field for acquiring players on waivers and the free agent player pool. ESPN has been offering FAAB as a waiver management option in their free fantasy baseball games since 2010. We’re not sure when Yahoo! and some of the other major game providers began offering it. But thanks to back to back seasons participating in the BBA Blogzkrieg! as members of the fantasy chapter of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance – we’ve gotten quite familiar with the ins and outs of managing FAAB (even if our roto rankings in the league may indicate otherwise).

UPS and DOWNS: Adjusting Your Roster in Weekly Leagues

Posted by on Apr 6, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball 101, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Tips on adjusting your roster in weekly fantasy baseball leagues. Many fantasy baseball leagues are set up so that teams accumulate statistics based on the players that are active during that particular week, often a Monday through Sunday week.  Some leagues allow daily changes to be made in the league, but this is often too much for the average fantasy baseball player as most of us don’t really want to bother looking at our rosters every day.  It seems as though Sunday night is the perfect night to make changes since most Sundays are day games and we often have sufficient time on Sunday night to do our homework. Here are some tips to help you make roster adjustments for weekly leagues. Check Games Scheduled Some teams will play 7 games per week and others may only play 6...
