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...

Baseball’s Hottest Wives Nominee: Stephanie McNutt

Posted by on Mar 14, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitchers, Hottest Baseball Wives | 3 comments

Fantasy Baseball Dugout reader Keri Bush tipped us off to a hot baseball wife that deserves to be considered for our 5th Annual Baseball’s Hottest Wives contest in 2012. If you haven’t heard of Trey McNutt before, you had better start to take notice.  McNutt is currently the #2 pitching prospect in the Cubs organization.  McNutt will be fighting for a bullpen position for the Cubs in 2012, despite not having pitched at the Triple-A minor league level yet.  McNutt is 22-years-old and from Birmingham, Alabama. According to Scouting Book.com, the Cubs covet McNutt and think he has a bright future, although injuries have clearly slowed him in recent years.  McNutt may spend 2012 in Double-A or Triple-A, thus making wife Stephanie McNutt ineligible for the 2012 Baseball’s Hottest Wives competition.  I’m sure you will agree, however, that Stephanie...

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...

Astros Announce Closer

Posted by on Mar 1, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitchers | 0 comments

Maybe we should add QR Codes to our articles.  Then, when information changes and what we’ve already written is no longer accurate, fans could scan the QR Code and get the latest information! On Tuesday, the Houston Astros announced that their closer will not be $5.5 million man Brandon Lyon, but veteran starter Brett Myers.  Myers is no stranger to a closer role.  He occupied the closer role for the 2007 Philadelphia Phillies, when he notched 21 saves with a 2.87 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 10.80 strikeouts-per-nine-innings ratio in what were 48 of his 58 career relief appearances. It is highly detrimental to a young team’s psyche to blow the few leads that they have late in the game and there is reason for concern with Myers.  Myers’ fastball has dropped below the 90 MPH mark and he’s now...
