Week 6 MLB Power Rankings

Posted by on May 18, 2010 in Baseball News, Baseball Power Rankings | 0 comments

Fantasy Baseball Dugout is proud to have one of the six voting spots in Yardbarker’s Blogger Poll for MLB Power Rankings 2010. In addition to providing our insight on ranking each MLB team 1-30, we also monitor the AL West each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 6. Since it is our responsibility to provide analysis of each AL West team, I’ve sprinkled that throughout the post below, too. Since the last time we published the rankings here on FBD (MLB Week 1), several things have changed – but the top is still very similar. De Rays and Da Yanks have been neck-in-neck for weeks as the league’s best team, and the Phillies are right behind them to round out the top three. Below, in ( ), you...

Week 6 Fantasy Baseball Two Start Pitchers

Posted by on May 8, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 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 third consecutive season, we will be tracking two start pitchers to make sure you always win your pitching categories. That way, if Johan Santana continues to carry an ERA in the mid-4’s all season – you’re not screwed. Below you will find...

Final Spring Training Cheat Sheet

Posted by on Apr 3, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Below is our fourth and final review of the top three hitters and pitchers in each standard 5×5 fantasy baseball category during 2010 Spring Training. Judging a hitter or pitcher on Spring Training performance is difficult because both hitters and hurlers tend to face some competition that won’t make an Opening Day roster. Spring Training stats can be useful in discovering who might breakout in the upcoming season or which rookies can make an impact when they are called up later in the year. In the case of sluggers like Mark Teixeira or Ryan Howard, Spring Training numbers just reinforce the notion that they are warm weather superstars – guys who dominate during the summer months and are notorious slow starters because they play in a four-season climate. Any thoughts on how spring training can positively or negatively affect...

Budgeting for Fantasy Baseball Auction Drafts

Posted by on Mar 19, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Editor’s Note: This article is written by Todd Lammi. Todd’s been playing fantasy baseball for 20 years. He has won numerous auction and draft leagues in multiple formats. The latest craze in fantasy baseball is the 15 team mixed auction draft. This combines players from both the American League and the Nation League into one player pool. It seems like 15 team leagues are gaining in popularity due to the outbreak of high stakes fantasy baseball leagues that are emerging thanks to the continued growth of the sport. One thing to keep to remember when viewing auction dollar values in a magazine is what is the league size that is being used. Some magazines will use 12 teams, some use 152, while others only post dollar values for a AL or NL only format. You have to be sure...
