2012 Fantasy Baseball Projection: Drew Pomeranz

Posted by on Nov 30, 2011 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

The pitching staff of the Colorado Rockies is, well, pretty rocky.  The Rockies had the second worst ERA in the National League last year at 4.73 and at least on paper, things are only getting, well, rockier. Gone is ace Ubaldo Jimenez from a July trade.  Gone is veteran Aaron Cook who has opted for free agency.  Promising southpaw Jorge de la Rosa has had Tommy John Surgery and won’t be back until at least June, 2012. Colorado has been active in pursuing Roy Oswalt, but the consensus is that Oswalt will likely land somewhere other than in Denver.  The Rockies would be happy to pick up a # 3 or # 4 starter to go with Jhoulys Chacin. Esmil Rogers and Juan Nicosia are expected back after tough seasons last year.  Rogers was especially awful: 7.05 ERA and...

Week 14 Two Start Pitchers

Posted by on Jul 4, 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 you’re cutting Wandy Rodriguez because of his 8.30 ERA over the last month – you can add someone who can...

Posted by on Jun 21, 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 11. They fell from the top of our Power Rankings (which they originally topped) in MLB week 2 and dropped all the way to no. 3 by week 4. But this week, thanks to a 3-7 slide over a 10-game span by De Rays, Da Yanks have retaken the top spot in our power poll. Thanks to hot streaks by both the Da Sawks and the Braves, De Rays fall to no. 4 in Week 11. Biggest movers of the week:...

Ubaldo Jimenez: What a Season

Posted by on Jun 19, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 2 comments

Just how good has Ubaldo Jimenez’s 2010 season been for the Rockies? Jimenez is 13-1 with a 1.15 ERA and a WHIP that is second in the MLB.  The last pitcher to start off the season with 13 wins and just 1 loss was Roger Clemens back in 1986.  Before that, you have to go back to a pretty fair pitcher named Lefty Gomez who did it in 1932 and another Lefty, Lefty Grove, who did it in 1931. This for a pitcher that was a projected 7th rounder in most National League drafts in pre-season publications. Ubaldo Jimenez has great stuff and he’s improved his stats every  year since coming up to the Big Leagues. 2008 — 12-12 3.99 1.43 2009 — 15-12 3.47 1.23 2010 — 13-1 1.15 0.99 Yeah, that’s a pretty good year. I know...
