Week 2 Spring Training Cheat Sheet

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

Below is our second 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 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 a players fantasy value? We...

Fantasy Baseball Rookies 2010

Posted by on Mar 15, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 1 comment

Outside of it being a fantasy baseball dynasty league, when it comes to drafting a rookie, I am always looking for the player that has the best chance of helping my team in the current season. If you are participating in a one year league or a league with keepers are allowed, it really does no good to roster a player like Josh Vitters down in Single-A when you could use that roster spot for a guy that is going to provide immediate dividends for you in 2010. For evaluating rookies, I am focusing on two things. The first being the players skill set and the other is the chance for an opportunity. Keep in mind that even if an opportunity is not currently present, skill wins out at the end of the day and will force an opportunity...

Fantasy Baseball Effects Of The Aubrey Huff / Tigers Claim

Posted by on Aug 18, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 1 comment

Monday, the Detroit Tigers acquired first baseman / DH Aubrey Huff off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for Brett Jacobson, an A-level minor leaguer. The Tigers intend to use Huff to bolster their lineup for the pennant chase, as they are only 2.5 games behind the White Sox in the AL Central. Coming off his career season in 2008, Huff is hitting just .253 this year with 13 homeruns, 72 RBI, 52 runs and no steals.  These numbers put him on a pace behind his career averages of .287 / 26 / 92 / 82 / 3 coming into 2009. So Huff is joining a contender for the first time in his career. Will he make the most of it? And how will his new surroundings play into his value for the playoffs this season? In January,...

Can the New York Mets season get any worse? Shortstop Jose Reyes went for an MRI on Wednesday and it appears as though Reyes’ hamstring injury is worse than originally anticipated.  Doctors reported that there is scar tissue and severe inflammation in the young star’s hamstring. Jose Reyes, 26, has not played since May 20 when he suffered the injury at Dodger Stadium. If you are still hanging on in hopes of a Reyes’ return for 2009, give up.  There is not a rey of hope that Jose will be back.  If you’re still holding out, you’re not alone.  According to CBS Sports, although only 9% of clueless managers still have Reyes in their starting lineup, 96% of fantasy baseball owners are still holding out for a miracle return in September for Reyes.  Give up.  It isn’t going to happen....
