Week 7 MLB Power Rankings

Posted by on May 25, 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 AL West NL East (props to Lady Loves Pinstripes for taking over the AL West beat) each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 7. Since it is our responsibility to provide analysis of each AL West NL East team, I’ve sprinkled that throughout the post below, too. De Rays and Da Yanks have been neck-in-neck for weeks as the league’s best team, but the Phillies have moved into the top two this week as the Yanks have gone 4-6 in their last 10. The Diamondbacks and Braves are the biggest...

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 AL West each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 6. Since it is our responsibility to provide analysis of each AL West team, I’ve sprinkled that throughout the post below, too. Since the last time we published the rankings here on FBD (MLB Week 1), several things have changed – but the top is still very similar. De Rays and Da Yanks have been neck-in-neck for weeks as the league’s best team, and the Phillies are right behind them to round out the top three. Below, in ( ), you...

April 2010: The Month That Was In Fantasy Baseball

Posted by on May 7, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Hard to believe that a full month of the MLB season is already in the books. Most baseball diehards know that what happens in April often means very little come September. There’s always a hott team in April that isn’t expected to hang around all year. On the other side of the coin, many teams struggle out of the gate but gain momentum as the year goes on to get competitive… at least, that’s what all of Red Sox Nation is hoping for. In fantasy baseball, the game is similar. Several players who are historically great and reliable struggle in the early months. Also, many journeyman players that you’ve never heard of before light up the box scores every night. Figuring out who’s April numbers are a phase and are for real is critical to being successful all season....

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...

2010 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper List: End of Spring Training

Posted by on Apr 1, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Sleepers | 2 comments

As MLB clubs wind up Spring Training 2010, several players have positioned themselves as 2010 sleepers for your upcoming fantasy baseball draft. David Wright, Mets, 3B —  He’s an all star so he’s not your typical sleeper pick, but he’s coming off of a horrible season for power.  Many think that Citi Field hurt Wright’s power numbers last year, but we think it’s just a blip of a year for Wright.  After seeing his power production drop to just 10 home runs last year after hitting 33 and 30 the previous two seasons, David Wright has gone yard 5 times already during Spring Training.  Wright lost a month and a half of the 2009 season after taking a fastball to the melon, but he looks ready for 2010. Roy Oswalt, Astros, SP — If you remember the Roy Oswalt...
