We all love value picks.  We all love sleepers.  Who will be this season’s Lance Berkman, Joel Hanrahan, or Ian Kennedy? BallparkBob reviews his top sleepers at each position for the 2012 season.   Catcher — Wilson Ramos, Washington Nationals Wilson Ramos is best known as the guy who got kidnapped in Venezuela this off-season before a daring rescue saved him.  But, he may be quite more well-known in 2012 now that Pudge Rodriguez is gone.  The 24-year-old’s ability to hit for power and average makes him an enticing sleeper for 2012.  In just 389 at bats, Ramos hit .267 with 15 homers, 52 RBIs and 48 runs scored.  He will not be pushed by backup Jesus Flores and should get the vast majority of the playing time.  Based on his 2011 season, Ramos is capable of a .270...

This post was written and contributed by Kellen Hunter. Picks for 2012 During the fantasy baseball draft, nothing quite beats the thrill of getting the most in-demand players on your roster. If you’re serious about your team, you spend hours poring over predictions and stats, making your picks and setting your lineups. But sometimes, a player that looks great on paper just fizzles on the field. That pick that was such a coup during training camp turns out to be an albatross that brings down your whole team… Just like some of these 2011 fantasy baseball must-haves who turned out to be duds: Justin Morneau, 1B, Minnesota Twins Players returning after injuries are always risky, and Justin Morneau is a textbook case as to why. The once consistent hitter hit only four HRs in 2011 and had an average...

Top 12 Relief Pitchers Sleepers

Posted by on Feb 25, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

One of the many flaws of fantasy baseball is that it doesn’t reward teams for having good middle relief or set-up men.  Holding a team in the 8th should be just as important as shutting them down in the 9th. But, it doesn’t work that way.  So, when we are talking about fantasy baseball relief pitchers, we are almost exclusively talking about the most valued fantasy baseball relief pitchers–closers.  You can keep up with the closers and closers in waiting on the ESPN closer depth chart.  Remember, when it comes to relief pitchers, its more about getting a chance to earn a save than being the best relief pitcher. Many experts believe that it isn’t important to draft closers early since they will be available in later rounds and can be picked up off the waiver wire.  And, certainly...
