Week 5 Two Start Pitcher Rankings

Posted by on Apr 29, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Are you two-start pitcher streaming? If not, you’re likely missing out on a great opportunity to increase your weekly strikeout total, win total, log more innings pitched, and potentially lower your team ERA and WHIP in head to head leagues that allow daily lineup changes. Some leagues don’t allow such activity by limiting the number of player adds you can make each week. However, if you can find a loophole in your league settings and add/drop pitchers all season long – you’re going to have a great chance to win the whole thing come September! For the fifth consecutive season, we will be tracking two start pitchers to make sure you always win your pitching categories. That way, if you consistently lose strikeouts each week – you can find someone who can help you in that category in a...

Bargain Basement Pickups

Posted by on Apr 28, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Here’s some bargain basements pickups for National League teams.  These are guys that are likely available in deep NL-only leagues that show some promise (well at least a little) and might be worthy of a flyer on a free agent pickup.   Eric Young, Jr., OF, Colorado Rockies  — All Eric Young Jr. will do for you is steal bases, but he’s actually quite good at it.  He has 4 SB’s already this year and amassed 27 in just 77 games last year.   Chris Johnson, 3B, Houston Astros  — Johnson is starting every day for the Astros at third.  He doesn’t anything very well for fantasy, but he is hitting .273 on the year so he won’t hurt you at the plate if injury forces him into your lineup at the corner position.   Ruben Tejada, SS, New...

VIDEO: Humber’s Perfect Game — See the Final Out

Posted by on Apr 22, 2012 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Phillip Humber pitched the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history on Saturday.  Watch the final out here as Humber puts down Brendan Ryan on a checked swing, missed third strike by A.J. Pierzynski. What do you think?  Did Ryan check his swing? The perfect game hurler has played for four teams during a 7 year MLB career.  He’s never pitched a complete game prior to his perfect game.  He makes the Major League minimum of $530k. Humber is owned in just 21% of CBS Sports fantasy baseball leagues so there’s probably a chance you can pick him up if you want to ride his momentum.  We called Humber a waiver wire gem last season....

Value picks.  Fantasy baseball is all about buying low and getting value.  Getting players that exceed the typical expectations for that player. Here’s our list of players that we’ll be targeting in our 2012 fantasy baseball draft. HITTERS Pedro Alvarez, Third Base, Pittsburgh Pirates — After a great rookie season when Pedro Alvarez hit 25 homers and drove in 104, he suffered the proverbial sophomore slump and even a mid-season demotion finishing a dismal .201 on the year.  We look for a bounce back year from Alvarez. Elvis Andrus, Shortstop, Texas Rangers —  Elvis Andrus is just 23 and his defense won’t hurt you in fantasy baseball.  Won’t give you any power, but is a consistent 35+ stolen base guy who had a career top .279 average last year. Jason Bourgeois, Outfield, Kansas City Royals — If Jason Bourgeois...

Mets Optimistic on Santana

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

The New York Mets have to be pleased with the progress made by Johan Santana.  Santana turned in an impressive performance in Wednesday’s Spring Training game against the World Series champion Cardinals as he dueled Jake Westbrook.  Santana pitched 6 innings, struck out 6, and did not walk a batter. World Series hero David Freese was so flummoxed by Santana’s pitching that he threw his bat…twice.  Santana’s fastball nestled into the 86-88 range and one time hit 90, but velocity has never been Santana’s game anyway.  It’s his off-speed repertoire that gets people out. Santana missed all of the 2011 season after having shoulder surgery in September 2010.  Back in 2010, when the Mets were still considered competitors in the now much stronger NL East, Santana notched a 2.98 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.  That compared to his career marks...
