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.

Posted by on Mar 7, 2010 in Baseball News, MLB Network | 0 comments

Clearwater Beach, Florida — It’s a tough assignment to have to leave the snow of the Northeast to spend a few days in Florida covering Spring Training 2010, but that’s exactly what the owners of Olympic Internet wanted me to do this season to help get you ready for your 2010 fantasy baseball draft. We couldn’t be everywhere, but we did get to see the Yankees – Rays game on Friday and the Phillies – Pirates game on Saturday.  Here’s some general observations from the games. *  The price of a ticket to Steinbrenner Field – $31.  The cost of the same ticket at Pittsburgh’s McKechnie Field in Bradenton — $11.  If that doesn’t compare a big market franchise with a small market franchise, I don’t know what does. *  If you think Phil Hughes is the answer for...

Posted by on Feb 28, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Tips, MLB Network | 0 comments

Here’s the single most important fantasy baseball tip you’ll get for the 2010 season. More important than “don’t take a relief pitcher in the early rounds, as saves are always plentiful.” More important than “your hometown players will always be over-valued in a local league.” The single most important fantasy baseball tip for the 2010 fantasy baseball season is: Watch the Games. We’ve never believed that fantasy baseball should be the reason that you follow baseball; fantasy baseball should be something that you do that helps you enjoy baseball more. By playing fantasy baseball, you naturally become more knowledgeable about the game itself.  You don’t just know about your hometown team, you know all the players in the league if you play fantasy baseball, even the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ohlendorf Down for Fantasy Baseball Season

Posted by on Sep 20, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Ross Ohlendorf is down for the season after another fine outing on Saturday. General manager Neal Huntington announced that he would sit Ohlendorf down for his final two starts remaining this year due to overuse.  Ohlendorf has hurled 176 2/3 innings this year in his first full season as a starting pitcher. Ohlendorf  ends the year with a record of 11-10 and 3.92 ERA in 29 starts.  He whiffed 109 and had an impressive WHIP of 1.23 for the hapless Pirates. More important, however, was Ohlendorf’s performance since the all star break.  In his final 11 starts, he had an ERA of 2.83 and limited opponents batting average to .234.  He had 8 quality starts in the final 11 games. Winding Up Ohlendorf Ohlendorf credits pitching coach Joe Kerrigan with adjusting his windup. “I think...
