Fantasy Baseball Profile: Albert Pujols

Posted by on Nov 28, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders | 0 comments

On Tuesday, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols won the National League’s Most Valuable Player Award for the third time in his career, and second time in as many seasons. Unlike the idiot reporter who voted for Miguel Cabrera in the AL, Pujols got all 32 first place votes in the NL. Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez was second, followed by Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard and Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder. We’ve gone over Pujols’ 2009 numbers several times here at Fantasy Baseball Dugout, where the Cardinals top player has also been our no. 1 fantasy baseball player the last two seasons. But… here are his 5×5 numbers for those who aren’t aware: .327/47/135/124/16. Pujols led the bigs in homers and runs, finished third in the NL in average and RBI, and his steal total matched his career high....

Hey Hey Hey its Phat Albert Again

Prior to the beginning of the 2009 fantasy baseball season, we told you that the best pick in the 2009 fantasy baseball draft was Albert Pujols.  Pujols has been the best player of the decade and while there were sexier picks prior to the start of the season, Fantasy Baseball Dugout reasoned that Pujols had been doing it longer and Albert, therefore, warranted the top pick. Most other publications and fantasy baseball web sites recommended that the # 1 pick should be used on the Marlins’ Hanley Ramirez.  And, while Ramirez had a great season, Pujols was the overwhelming top rated fantasy baseball player in 2009, as analyzed by ESPN’s Fantasy Baseball site. Pujols was ranked the top player in the 2009 fantasy baseball season with a 14.28 ranking.  The runner-up, Zack Greinke, received a distant 12.51 ranking.  Pujols was not only...

Five Free Agents To Watch For 2010 Fantasy Baseball

Posted by on Oct 13, 2009 in Baseball News | 0 comments

There are some big names in the list of 2010 eligible free agents. While it is conceivable that guys like Manny Ramirez will simply have their options picked up and resign with their current teams, some of the big chips in this year’s free agent pool are going to cash in with new teams. Their fantasy value will be effected by the change of scenery, no doubt. Here is our list of the top 5 unrestricted free agents to watch. Where they land could have a major effect (positive or negative) on their 2010 fantasy baseball value. Chone Figgins: The 32-year old has been a source of runs and steals for several years in the Angels lineup. Last season, he batted .298 with 5 homeruns, 54 RBI, 114 runs scored and 42 steals. With three straight seasons of 30+...

Fantasy Baseball Profile: Mark DeRosa

Posted by on Oct 7, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders | 0 comments

If you are a regular reader of Fantasy Baseball Dugout, then you know one of our favorites is St. Louis Cardinals’ utility man Mark DeRosa.  And, while Mark is one of our favorites, his wife Heidi DeRosa is clearly the favorite of our readers; Heidi has been voted Baseball’s Hottest Wife for two consecutive years.  That’s an all-time record in the history of the Baseball’s Hottest Wife competition. DeRosa, the baseball player, is the 34-year-old third baseman for the Cardinals as they enter the NLDS in Los Angeles. He’s a 7th round pick of the Atlanta Braves from back in 1996.  DeRosa grew up in Passaic, New Jersey and attended the University of Pennsylvania where he not only played baseball, but was also the quarterback on the Quakers’ football team. After spending 2005 with the Texas Rangers, DeRosa signed a three year,...

Heidi DeRosa Repeats As Baseball’s Hottest Wife

Posted by on Sep 2, 2009 in Hottest Baseball Wives | 0 comments

Heidi DeRosa, a former fashion model and winner of Fantasy Baseball Dugout’s 2008 Hottest Wife In Baseball Contest, received 63% of the vote in 2009, repeating in a landslide victory as winner of our 2009 Hottest Baseball Wife Vote. DeRosa, wife of St. Louis Cardinals Utility Infielder Mark DeRosa, jumped out to an early lead on the support of Cardinals fans and listeners of KHITS 96, a radio station in St. Louis. Listeners and blog readers of Captain Carl’s “BLARRRG” rallied listeners/Cardinals fans to vote in massive numbers. By the time the dust settled on the ballot stuffing from KHITS listeners, DeRosa’s lead was insurmountable. Jordan Schneider, wife of New York Mets catcher Brian Schneider, pulled away from the rest of the wives in the second half of the voting period to finish as runner up. Schneider’s success came...
