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...

Strasburg, Chapman Debut

Posted by on Apr 12, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Sunday marked the debut of two future fantasy baseball superstars. Stephen Strasburg made his long awaited debut for the Harrisburg Senators in front of a standing-room only crowd of 7,877 in Altoona.  Strasburg pitched 5 innings and struckout 8 Curve hitters (I wonder if they swung at “curves”?).  Strasburg also gave up 4 hits, walked 2, and had 1 earned run and 4 runs allowed. Strasburg started slow, but then began to dominate.  At one point, he retired 7 straight Altoona hitters; 5 were by strikeout.  His second inning was 8 pitches–all strikes.  One of his sliders caused a Curve hitter to back out of the box, only to see the pitch nip the corner and an embarrassing third strike. Strasburg, who signed for $7.5 million plus 4 years at $15.1 million during the off-season out of San Diego State,...

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...

REDS ALERT: Ink Cuban Missile Thrower

Posted by on Jan 10, 2010 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 1 comment

Jays Make Pitch for Cuban, But No Cigar Cuban southpaw Aroldis Chapman has reportedly signed with the Cincinnati Reds. Cincinnati Reds for five years and $30 million.  That price is twice what Steven Strasburg, 21, was signed for by the Nationals.  Of course, Chapman had the advantage of not being an American and not having to go into the major league draft. The Reds were one of many teams to see Chapman throw on December 15 when Chapman threw for numerous major league scouts in Florida.  The 22-year-old was clocked at over 100 MPH while pitching for Cuba in the World Baseball Classic. In our last report on Chapman, we identified the Blue Jays as the favorites to land the Cuban defector and we believed he would sign on New Year’s Eve.  That did not happen and reportedly several big...
