OBP Leagues: No Stopping Short Here

Looking over Shortstop in OBP leagues is not pretty. Even the top-5 gets ugly quick; Troy Tulowitzki (.432), Hanley Ramirez (.369), Ben Zobrist (.354), Danny Santana (.353), and Starlin Castro (.339) round out the top-5. The top guys tend to have good OBP numbers and will be a plus at the position while there are a few guys throughout the rankings that will kill your OBP...

The 2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide and Draft Pack, with two great draft day tools, are here! Get your copies today! Adrian Beltre hit at least 25 HR in seven of the eight seasons from 2006-2013 before falling to just 19 HR last year.

2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide: Wade Miley, Sleeper?

View image | gettyimages.com You’d be forgiven if you saw Wade Miley in the title and skipped right over this post. In 638.2 career innings over four seasons he’s the owner of a career 3.79 ERA and 7.03 K/9. He’s played in anonymity in Arizona since 2011, and he had arguably the worst full season of his career in 2014. But if you dig a little deeper, behind the baseball...

View image | gettyimages.com OFFSEASON OVERVIEW If you get off the 4 train outside of Yankee Stadium and listen closely, you may actually hear a pin drop.  The Yankees had one of the quietest offseasons in years, adding a left handed bullpen arm in Andrew Miller, trading for Nathan Eovaldi and Didi Gregorius, and re-signing Chase Headley and Stephen Drew.  Sounds more like...

Player Profile #18: Stephen Strasburg | SP | WAS

Stephen Strasburg is an exceptional player, no question about it, and I don’t think anyone could reasonably make the argument that he wasn’t worth the number one overall pick in the 2009 Amateur Draft. If the Nationals could have a mulligan on that pick I don’t think they would change a thing.  Strasburg is still as exciting to watch as any pitcher in the game What I...

Deep League Thoughts: Trevor Bauer

Per the usual, I have to drop a caveat when it comes to Deep League Thoughts about pitchers: there's no such thing as a deep league pitcher. Unless you're talking 20 team leagues and then you're calling some relievers deep league pitchers. I ain't going there so let's realize upfront before you feel affronted. Now that we have that settled, when does a young pitcher settle? Two...

2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide: Right Field Over/Unders

View image | gettyimages.com Right field is so famous for being a throw away position that Peter, Paul, and Mary wrote a song about it. “Because I’m here in right field, just watching the dandelions grow.” In terms of fantasy baseball, there can be little doubt that right field is now the most stacked position on the diamond. You could argue for first base, but as you will...
