Week 8 MLB Power Rankings

Posted by on Jun 1, 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 NL East each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 8. Since it is our responsibility to provide analysis of each NL East team, I’ve sprinkled that throughout the post below, too. So, after moving the Phillies into the top 2 last week, they promptly forgot how to score runs for an entire 7-day stretch and plummeted in this week’s rankings – down five spots to no. 7. Therefore, De Rays and Da Yanks are back in the top 2 spots, and the Twins have entered the top 3. Otherwise, there...

Week 9 Two Start Pitchers

Posted by on May 29, 2010 in 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 third consecutive season, we will be tracking two start pitchers to make sure you always win your pitching categories. That way, if Felix Hernandez continues to winless deep into the month of June – you’re not screwed. Below you will find each...

How To Handle Jason Heyward In Your Fantasy Baseball Draft

Posted by on Mar 29, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

There’s always one highly-touted MLB prospect that rocks the fantasy baseball world during draft season. Sure, there are pitchers too, but they are typically the victims of overhype because we all get to see them audition against Major League hitting during the stretch of the previous season (Joba Chamberlain and David Price, anyone?). Hitting prospects who get a taste of Major League action typically blossom the following offseason and during Spring Training. In 2008, this was the case with Rays 3B Evan Longoria. In 2009, ditto with Orioles catcher Matt Wieters. While these young players are typically sent back down to the minors for contractual reasons, 2010’s youngest, highest talented, and highest touted prospect is making the  Opening Day roster. So, with that knowledge at hand, and your draft likely to fall sometime this week… it’s time to figure...

Week 3 Spring Training Cheat Sheet

Posted by on Mar 27, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Below is our third 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, 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 a players fantasy value? We...
