Top 27 Players Turning 27 In 2012

Posted by on Mar 12, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 2 comments

There’s a popular theory in sabermetric circles that MLB players enter their years of peak statistical performance when they turn the age of 27. Technically, the age range of peak performance for MLB players is somewhere between 26 and 32. During this time period, a man is physically at his peak. The combination of physical peakness coupled with the repetition of swinging motions and pitch motion practice lead to outstanding statistical performance during these seasons. We aren’t the only believers in this theory. For some examples of recent memory for those skeptics, we point to the 2011 quality statistical campaigns players like almost MVP Matt Kemp, Royals 3-bagger Alex Gordon, and D-backs starter Ian Kennedy each put together the year they turned 27. So, assuming all of this “age 27” stuff is true, its probably a good idea to...

When Is The Best Time To Draft A Pitcher?

Posted by on Mar 10, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball 101, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

While in most traditional 5×5 fantasy baseball leagues they still contribute statistically to 50% of the scoring, pitchers don’t get the respect they often deserve at draft time. The main reason for this is obvious – starting pitchers only contribute once every five days, and relievers only face a handful of batters (at best). One of the most common questions at draft time is when you can get value for a pitcher. Now, taking elite pitchers out of the equation like Justin Verlander or Roy Halladay, the best time to consider taking a starting pitcher is likely the 3rd round, even better if you can stetch it to the 4th round. In the first three draft rounds, depending on where you end up in the draft order, your selection pattern should likely resemble something like this: Best available hitter...

Jonathan Bentz of Fantasy Baseball Dugout discusses the Michael Pineda for Jesus Montero trade and its impact on fantasy baseball 2012.   Michael Pineda to the Yankees: Fantasy Analysis In getting traded to the New York Yankees, Miguel Pineda immediately gets thrown into a spotlight/pressure cooker situation. He’s projecting right now as no. 2 in the Yankees rotation behind CC Sabathia — so you know he will be in line for some wins if he can keep it consistent. After his All-Star start to the 2011 season – he struggled with getting wins down the stretch. Obviously, wins aren’t as important in fantasy baseball as they are in real life. This is one of the great inaccuracies of fantasy baseball, but one of the biggest reasons great pitchers on bad teams still have a lot of value (see Hernandez,...

Do you go by the names or the numbers?

Posted by on Jul 23, 2011 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball 101, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 2 comments

Editor’s Note: Below is another awesome contribution to the Fantasy Baseball Dugout library from the Fantasy Baseball Scholars, Ryan Jones and Tim Lander. Make sure you check them out on Facebook and follow them on Twitter, too. Names sometimes lie to us. Our perception of a player is often dictated by their reputation or pedigree. As a fantasy owner, you must determine whether it’s the name you want or the numbers. A successful fantasy owner knows that it is always the actual numbers. Lack of knowledge on what a particular players actual numbers are can give you a statistical advantage over your leagues owners. The best way to compare players is without the names attached. Take a look at these players stats to see how your perception matches up with reality on a statistical analysis. Statistics are IP/QS/ERA/WHIP/K and updated as of...
