When it comes to the outfield, there are numerous strategies.  Go for the elite outfielders or take your time and fill your late round picks with decent producers.  One thing is for sure in this season’s outfield draft: there will be stolen bases available in the later rounds as teams start running more now that we are in an era where the pitchers have caught up to the hitters a bit (PED’s?). Here’s a look at our fantasy baseball sleepers for 2012 at the outfield position. If you want to see our overall top 75 outfielders for 2012, click here.

Braun’s PED’s Make Kemp Top Outfielder

Posted by on Jan 2, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders | 0 comments

We recently named Ryan Braun as our number 1 pick in the 2012 fantasy baseball draft.  Within 24 hours of our pick of Braun, information was released that Braun has been associated with performance enhancing drugs that could sideline the Brewers slugger for 50 games.  Guest writer Chris McBrien takes a look at what Braun’s likely disqualification means to his 2012 fantasy baseball projections. National League MVP Ryan Braun has tested positive for having a banned Performance Enhancing Drug (PED) in his system. As a result, he now faces a 50-game suspension from major league baseball. Many observers have been quick to condemn the slugger but it is probably best to reserve judgment on Braun until all of the facts are known. Regardless, what is important in fantasy baseball circles are the implications this will have on Ryan Braun’s...

Fantasy Baseball Effects of the Major Hot Stove Moves

Posted by on Dec 17, 2011 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

It has been a very hot Hot Stove League for Fall and Winter 2011 and there are still many key free agent signings remaining. Fantasy Baseball Dugout takes a look at the winners and losers thus far in the 2011 free agent market.  Which players will perform better in their new homes and which players will struggle.  We take a look. Albert Pujols:  Cardinals –> Angels  Value: Slightly Up With the PED charge looming against Ryan Braun, Albert Pujols at age 32 just may be the #1 pick again in the 2012 fantasy baseball draft.  Pujols has fared well in his career as both a DH (.360) and against the American League (.348) so we don’t expect any decline.  The only slight concern is that Pujols is coming off of his worst season ever, although worst season for Albert...

Fantasy Baseball Effects of Albert Pujols Move

Posted by on Dec 11, 2011 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders | 0 comments

Albert Pujols did the unimaginable.  Pujols faked all of us out by signing with the Los Angeles Angels–a team that didn’t even enter the Pujols sweepstakes until two days before he actually signed.  The result of the contract is a 10 year commitment from the Angels that will pay Phat Albert $68,493 per day for the next 3650 days–the second largest contract in MLB history. Pujols is coming off of his worst season of his career, at least by Pujols standards.  Pujols suffered an elbow injury and ended the year at .299 with 37 home runs, 99 RBI, 9 stolen bases, and a World Series championship.  You know you are a pretty good player when those kind of numbers are your worst ever. But, there is no denying that Pujols’ batting average has been trending downward for the past...
