Camping and hiking are not easy things to do when you live in an Urban Serengetti like Philadelphia or New York City. That said, you should really get out of town this summer for some travel and outdoor fun.

More Mixed League Fantasy Baseball Draft Results

Posted by on Mar 25, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

At Fantasy Baseball Dugout, we find it much more effective for our readers to review a draft of a normal league as opposed to experts leagues. More often than not, regular fantasy baseball GM’s don’t draft with other “experts,” who reach for prospects earlier, never draft their favorite players, and always draft pitchers much later than you or your buddies would. One of my college buddies who I’ve been playing a variety of fantasy sports over the past five years had his baseball draft last night. The league is a head-to-head contest consisting of 10-teams with 6 hitter categories (average, runs, homeruns, RBI, steals, walks) and 6 pitcher categories (wins, saves, strikeouts, ERA, WHIP, quality starts). Starting lineups in my friend’s league include 1 hitter at each infield position, 3 outfielders, 1 utility hitter, 2 starting pitchers, 2 closers,...

My Second Draft Of 2009: FSIC AL-Only Experts League

Posted by on Mar 25, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Outfielders, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

This past weekend, I had the privilege of participating in a fantasy baseball experts draft as part of the Fantasy Sports Invitational Challenge sponsored by Fantasy Sports R Us. The league consists of 12 teams and features an AL-only player universe – meaning you will find names and draft positions of some players that might not make any sense for your league. For those of you who are playing in AL-only leagues this season, publishing these draft results could be a real gift. This was probably the toughest draft I have ever participated in because I had to dig deep into my dungeon of player knowledge to come up with late round draft picks as I did in this draft. 5×5 roto scoring will be used for points with set lineups locked each week on Monday. Every team has...

New Home for the Holliday

Posted by on Mar 5, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Outfielders | 0 comments

Matt Holliday has a new home and it’s in Oakland. After a five year career in the friendly confines of Coors Field, Matt Holliday now moves to cavernous McAfee Coliseum.  Holliday’s projected 2009 fantasy baseball stats are the subject of many stories this Spring. It makes sense that Holliday’s 2009 projections will be lower than they have been historically.  Holliday has not been the same during his career when playing on the road.  His lifetime batting average in Denver is .357 versus a more ordinary .280 on the road.  He’s hit 84 homers at home versus 44 on the road.  Over the past three years, that converts to one homerun in 14.6 at bats at home and one in 26.3 on the road. Holliday’s production dropped off last year as well, but that can be blamed primarily on injury.  Holliday played...

Oakland Signs Giambi. Hope for Holliday?

Posted by on Jan 9, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 1 comment

The prodigal son returns home to finish his career. Tuesday, Jason Giambi signed with the Oakland Athletics. This a great story for Jason as he gets to return home to finish his career. In 2008, Giambi batted .247 with 32 homers, 96 RBI, 68 runs and 2 steals. The batting average leaves something to be desired, but the power numbers remain consistent with his post-steroid, healthy self. Similar power numbers AND a better batting average are available from most “start worthy” first baseman in 10 or 12-team leagues. For 2009, fantasy owners who draft Giambi should have no qualms playing him in a corner infielder slot or as a DH/utility player. The biggest winner in the Giambi-signing: the 2009 fantasy value of Matt Holliday. His stock took a major drop when he got traded from the Colorado Rockies, which...
