2010 MLB Predictions (And Some Fantasy Baseball)

Posted by on Apr 4, 2010 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Tomorrow – officially – is Opening Day (even though ESPN likes to get the party started one night early). Opening Day is still one of our favorite days of the year at Fantasy Baseball Dugout. Something about baseball being played nationwide for the first time each April is thrilling. Maybe its one of the sure tell signs of spring, maybe its the famous people throwing out first pitches, maybe its the fact that there is meaningful afternoon baseball on a Monday. Whatever it is – the homies at Fantasy Baseball Dugout love Opening Day. Since every baseball blogger is going to be throwing out MLB predictions over the next 48 hours, we figured now is the best time to throw out our 2010 regular season predictions, too. When we look back over our track record in making these MLB...

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...

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...
