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...

Budgeting for Fantasy Baseball Auction Drafts

Posted by on Mar 19, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Catchers, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Editor’s Note: This article is written by Todd Lammi. Todd’s been playing fantasy baseball for 20 years. He has won numerous auction and draft leagues in multiple formats. The latest craze in fantasy baseball is the 15 team mixed auction draft. This combines players from both the American League and the Nation League into one player pool. It seems like 15 team leagues are gaining in popularity due to the outbreak of high stakes fantasy baseball leagues that are emerging thanks to the continued growth of the sport. One thing to keep to remember when viewing auction dollar values in a magazine is what is the league size that is being used. Some magazines will use 12 teams, some use 152, while others only post dollar values for a AL or NL only format. You have to be sure...

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...

Week 1 Spring Training Cheat Sheet

Posted by on Mar 11, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 2 comments

Below is our first 2010 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, however, 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 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 a...

Cuban Defector Chapman Likely to Sign Today

Posted by on Dec 31, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 2 comments

Some time today, a major signing will be announced. Cuban defector Aroldis Chapman will sign with an MLB team–likely the Mets, Yankees, Marlins, or Athletics. If you think the A’s don’t have a chance against the New Yorkers, think again.  The A’s were able to sign Dominican Michael Ynoa in 2008 and the 17-year-old Ynoa made his debut in the 2009 season in the minors. Defection Opens Doors Chapman defected from Cuba in July 2009 while in Rotterdam, The Netherlands for the World Port Tournament.  Chapman had only been in Holland for an hour when he told his roommate he was going outside for a smoke.  Instead of lighting up, Chapman jumped into a car owned by a friend and sped away from the hotel after Cuban officials neglected to collect his passport after landing at Rotterdam Airport.  When...
