2015 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles — Shortstops

View image | gettyimages.com Why should I read this article? I thought my draft had gone well. I drafted my man crush Ben Zobrist to be my starting shortstop and even added Jed Lowrie as insurance. Everything seemed right. Then, a month into the season I lost both of them to the disabled list. These things happen and when they happen you start looking for someone (anyone) that...

Daily SP Rankings: Tue/Wed, May 26-27

The Memorial Day weekend threw off my posting schedule a bit, so let’s jump back in with a double-dipping of probable pitcher rankings! On Tuesday Jose Urena makes his rotation debut for the Marlins in their game at the Pirates. Urena ranks slightly above average in this game thanks in large part to his immaculate control. That should help keep his WHIP down even if he gets hit...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, May 26

After the long weekend, I went back to find my Official Lineup from Friday, but I couldn’t find the right one. To briefly recap, I went with a Yankees stack at home against Colby Lewis with Ubaldo Jimenez at the Marlins as my featured starting pitcher. The Yankees were only so-so and Jimenez only put up 6.70 points, so I know the lineup didn’t do much. Unfortunately, I don...

Fantasy Roundup: Nap Attack

Mike Napoli was a sleeper candidate entering the season but has been a disappointment. There have been signs of promise, and the biggest of those came this weekend. While he’s still hitting just .201, Napoli came alive this weekend with 4 HR while going 5-for-9 with 5 R and 8 RBI. Now with 8 HR on the season, this is what we were expecting to see from him to start the season...

SAGNOF Special, Week 8: Heeere’s Carson!

Last week I recommended Shawn Tolleson, a player that seemed on the cusp of closerdom.  The closer's role is now his and even though they have a player in Keone Kela that is being groomed for the role (thanks for the tip, Smokey!), it is my belief that Tolleson will stay the closer until he loses the job by blowing saves, but that could be said of just about any closer.  This week...
