Ty Wigginton: Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

Posted by on Feb 15, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 2 comments

Last week, I compiled my fantasy baseball sleepers at the third base position.  And, the more I thought about it, the more I liked my 13th pick of Ty Wigginton of the Phillies. Wigginton can play and he isn’t just coming to Philadelphia to be insurance and play on Sunday afternoons after a late Saturday night game.  With Ryan Howard out early in the year, Wigginton is going to have more opportunity to play.  It may be that Wigginton plays third base and bumps Placido Polanco over to second with Chase Utley moving to first base.  Utley played 21 games at first base during the 2004-05 seasons.  It may also be that Wigginton offers more power than Polanco and the Phillies platoon the two if Wigginton hits well early in the season. One thing is for sure: Polanco, Utley...

How To Take Charge of Your Injury Problem

Posted by on Feb 4, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

  Ever draft a great fantasy baseball team, only to see it go down the tubes quickly due to unanticipated injuries to your new fantasy baseball studs?  We’ve all been there. But, how do you avoid the injury bug in fantasy baseball?  Well, the first way is to avoid those injury prone players.  Injuries are not about bad luck, at least not always.  Some player are just more prone to injury than others (Grady Sizemore anyone?) so try to avoid them.  (Shameless plug to see pictures of Grady Sizemore’s girlfriend here.   Heck, we could have chosen a lot of other guys that are injury prone too.) The second way is through drafting multi-position players and guys who will be moving to other positions for the new season.  On our radio show this morning, we targeted Trevor Plouffe, Emilio Bonifacio,...

Top 9 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers: Shortstops

Posted by on Feb 4, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

Shortstop is no longer a position where the 3 R’s (Reyes, Rollins, Ramirez) dominate as Troy Tulowitzki is the clear top pick today and perhaps the top pick in the game.  But, if you look closely, you will be able to find some diamonds in the rough at the shortstop position. Here are our 2012 fantasy baseball sleepers at the shortstop position. 1.  Dee Gordon, Los Angeles Dodgers — Stolen bases are over-rated in the fantasy game when compared to the real game of baseball.  And, Dee Gordon, son of ex-Major League reliever Flash Gordon, will light up the stolen base charts in 2012.  In just 224 at bats and 56 games last year, Gordon swiped 24 bases and was caught on 7 occasions.  If he plays in 156 games instead of 56 in 2012, that projects to 67...

2012 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers: Second Base

Posted by on Jan 28, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 0 comments

In our continuing analysis of your 2012 fantasy baseball draft, we look at the fantasy baseball sleepers at the second base position for the 2012 fantasy baseball draft. Second base, along with catcher, is the position many managers look for when it comes to position scarcity, meaning that there’s less good ones available.  Hence, players like Ian Kinsler and Robinson Cano have increased value in your fantasy baseball draft.  But, if you have to draft a second baseman deep in the rounds, here are some guys they just may turn out to be keystone gems. 1.  Michael Cuddyer, Colorado Rockies — When most baseball fans think of Michael Cuddyer, they don’t think about a second baseman, but Cuddyer, depending on your league’s rules, may be just that.  Hence, his value in moving to hitter friendly Coors Field is increased...
