Top 10 Keeper League Strategies

Posted by on Oct 2, 2010 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Prospects | 6 comments

If you are reading this post in October, it’s probably because you love fantasy baseball.  And, you plan on playing again next year.  You also likely play in a keeper league and/or an auction league, because these leagues simply have more strategy and more to offer a serious fantasy baseball player. Keeper Leagues Defined Most fantasy baseball managers play in a yearly redraft league.  In such a league, the slate is wiped clean every year and a manager gets to re-draft an entirely new team.  Its fun, and its the most common of fantasy baseball leagues, but it doesn’t nearly have the level of strategy of a keeper league. A keeper league, as opposed to a dynasty league, usually allows you to keep some players (as little as 3, but as many as 15) from one season to the...

Can Pat White Make An MLB Roster?

Posted by on Sep 13, 2010 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Prospects | 8 comments

While its quite unfortunate, the above picture is the last image most people have seen of former NFL quarterback Pat White. Following a wildly successful collegiate career as a dual-threat quarterback at West Virginia University, White was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft to be a backup quarterback and featured signal caller of Miami’s famous “Wildcat” offensive scheme. NOTE: if you are interested in our free fantasy football tips, please visit Fantasy Football Sideline, our football sister site. On January 3, in the final week of his rookie season with the Dolphins, White was carted off the field following a collision that left him unconscious. Even though he played his best game as an NFL pro in the Dolphins third preseason game of 2010, it wasn’t enough to keep his spot...

5 Guys To Consider If You Own Pedroia Or Utley

Posted by on Jul 3, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

If you own one of these two top fantasy baseball second baseman, you’ve probably been scrambling trying to figure out what to do at second base with your team. Pedroia’s already been out for about a week with a broken foot, and will probably miss another five. Utley is going to be out until about September with his thumb injury and recovery from the surgery. According to ESPN draft data, Utley was a universal first round pick and Pedroia was pretty much a universal third round pick. Bottom line – if you had these guys on your roster, you were starting them and probably had a low grade insurance plan. So now, chances are good you might be scrambling to find a second baseman. Fantasy Baseball Dugout has five recommendations for teams looking for a second baseman readily available...

Two Third Basemen You Want Now

Posted by on Jun 18, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

Many fantasy baseball leagues have supplemental drafts throughout the year or enable managers to pick up new  players who make their debuts.  If you are in need of a third baseman or a corner infielder, then this week is your lucky week if these guys are still available. DAYAN VICIEDO, 3B, WHITE SOX — On Thursday, Dayan Viciedo, 21, was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte.  The 5′ 11″ Cuban, who signed a 4 year $10 million deal in 2008, was hitting .290 with 14 homers and 54 RBI in the minors in 62 games. At first, the move left Sox fans wondering given that Viciedo has started all but ten games at first this year, but manager Ozzie Guillen confirmed that Viciedo’s role will be at the hot corner.  Paul Konerko, the Chicago first baseman, has 17 homers already this...

Why Now Is The Time To Add Sean Rodriguez

Posted by on Jun 16, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

During Spring Training this year, your favorite rotoball pundits at Fantasy Baseball Dugout waxed on and on about Sean Rodriguez. The Tampa Bay Rays utility man was our unofficial Spring MVP after he spent most of the exhibition season as the top run scorer and home run hitter in either league with a batting average right around .400. We hyped him. We told you to draft him. We lobbied the Rays to start him at second base. Then the season began, and… On April 17, he went 0-4 against the Boston Red Sox. That 0-fer dropped his season average to .160. While he had reached base in five of the eight games he saw action in, he only had 1 RBI and no home runs. We can’t blame you if you took our advice during Spring Training. We also...
