2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– San Diego Padres

Tanking is such a dirty word. No one truly loses on purpose. At least, no one purposely tries to lose that we know of. However, it is difficult not to look at the Padres record (15-29 going into the weekend), their payroll, and the moves they’ve made and come to any conclusion other than they aren’t trying that hard to win. There is a subtle difference there and it can manifest...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles–San Francisco Giants

One of the great things about sports is that you can never predict the future. Unfortunately, fan of the Giants are witnessing the downside of that fact. As of this writing, they stand in fourth place in the NL West and that is only due to the struggles of the San Diego Padres. Their staff ace got injured in a freak motorcycle accident. Hunter Pence is on the disabled list and their...

2017 Fantasy Baseball, Week 8 Preview

Week 8 looks like a good week for pitching. There’s an abundance of SP2/3 types with two starts already so the likelihood is you’ll have some good starts in the week ahead without having to pick anyone up. Couple that with the number of good hitters currently hurt, sitting on the DL or only just about ready to return to action, I’m expecting a pitcher dominated week. Of course...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– St. Louis Cardinals

Every organization operates differently even when they use data to support their moves. The Cardinals are a unique franchise because they have enough revenue to operate like a big boy, but they like to build their team through their farm system. So, most of their players are home grown and that comes with a number advantages and some disadvantages. The primary advantage is that you...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: 3 to Add, 3 to Keep, 3 to Drop– Second Base Edition

Admittedly, I took some flack last week for going with the obvious choices at first base. This feature creates an interesting conundrum. We can outthink ourselves by going for the under the radar choice when the obvious choice is well…obvious. On the other hand, if that player is owned in your league it can be less than helpful. Point taken. Still, there is always the possibility...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– Pittsburgh Pirates

Most of the time, you want star players on your team. Stars obviously produce great numbers in their own right, but they also attract other players. Then, there is the marketing that goes along with those stars. Andrew McCutchen might or might not be a legitimate star, but he is as close to that as the Pirates currently have. He won the NL MVP award in 2013 and has finished in the...

With week 7 commencing, we are entering make or break time for your fantasy leagues. Those of you in standard head-to-head leagues, the end of week 7 marks a third of your season over. So making a statement in week 7 can put you in a great position to charge for the playoffs. This week 7 could be bigger than ever as well. It’s something I think I say every year in mid-May, but...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– Philadelphia Phillies

One of the truths of using a zero-based system is that someone must be negative. Defensive runs saved uses a zero-based system and in that system approximately half of the regulars and half of the teams will be below zero. No matter how much we may like a team, player, manager, or executive, someone must finish last. Sometimes it is because of malpractice or lack of effort, but sometimes...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: 3 to Add, 3 to Keep, 3 to Drop– First Base Edition

As we continue on with the 3x3x3 saga we move to first base where things are really moving and shaking. The key is to know which category to put guys into. Sometimes you may drop a guy that is simply slumping. Sometimes you may add a guy that is simply having a hot week. Utilizing the waiver wire is definitely an art and a science. 3 to Add Ryan Zimmerman— Washington Nationals...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– New York Mets

The Mets have been to the playoffs in two out of the past three seasons, so they must be doing something right. Watching different teams reach the playoffs is a testament to the different philosophies that can succeed in the sport. Try as we might, we cannot dictate how a team should build themselves to be successful. The Mets have built around a group of pitchers that collectively...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers are embarking on a rebuilding project and they seem to be ahead of schedule because of some clairvoyant decision making. Both Travis Shaw and Eric Thames have paid huge dividends so far. David Stokes learned from the best in Houston, so it makes sense that he would be successful in rebuilding. Fielding has played a small part of that, but with a group of young players...

2017 Fantasy Baseball, Week 6 Preview

So we head now into week 6. And witty intros about how time is flying by are becoming more and more difficult to do. It’s a bit like finding a new and amusing joke about Star Wars on May 04th. So rather than prolong the painful inevitability of failing to find sufficient wit, we’ll just head straight into week 6. As always, our Two Start Stars are here which will fire you to...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– Los Angeles Dodgers

A funny thing happens to people that have been poor their whole life and suddenly become rich. Most of the time, they don’t suddenly become sophisticated. They make many of the same poor choices they made before they were rich. There are plenty of stories of lottery winners that wound up in worse shape than before they won the lottery. Such is the same with the baseball executive...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: Monitoring Outfielder Trends

Late in the draft, you would have been looking for specific stats to round off your team. That’s what you do. It’s the 20th round and you’re light on speed. So you draft Rajai Davis, knowing he has next to zero power and will likely only knock in a couple of runs a week. But he has the speed you need. You still need some power, so in round 21 you take a chance and pick Aaron...

2017 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles– Miami Marlins

Thankfully, the Jeffrey Loria era is about to come to an end in Miami. Baseball’s bulimic franchise is about to gain some stability. At least we hope the new ownership group (whoever it may be) will bring some stability to south Florida. Like with real bulimia, the baseball version causes internal damage you can’t see from the outside. In the case of the Marlins, they have never...
