Found March 16, 2012 on Razzball:
3rd base sucks.  My apologies to MC Serch and Prime Minister Pete Nice, but it ain’t about y’all!  It’s 3rd base for fantasy baseball.  And it’s like a raccoon crawled up in your attic and died, then the raccoon’s ghost came back in the form of your dead grandmother and nags you about changing your underwear.  Tell your dead raccoon ghost in the form of your dead grandmother that you don’t need to change underwear if you’re not regularly getting laid and 3rd base sucked before, but now it’s even worse with this David Wright getting all iffy up in here, up in here.  Let’s face it, only two people per league are getting Bautista or Longoria.  You want Adrian Beltre for $29/3rd round?  I don’t really want to pay that premium.  So we’re left with trying to figure out how to get the stench of this dead raccoon/grandmother hybrid out of our fantasy attic with sleeper picks.  I went over some targets for 3rd base for 2012 fantasy baseball.  I didn’t mention Brent Morel there becaus

Dunn ready to move on from horrific season

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- I didnt think Adam Dunn would stink last season. I dont think he will stink this season. It seems impossible that a guy could average 40 homers for seven seasons and then turn historically horrible. But it happened. Dunn thinks he knows why it happened. But three different people with the Chicago White Sox used the same phrase unprompted when talking about Dunns...

Dunn just glad 2011 nightmare is over

I didn't think Adam Dunn would stink last season. I don't think he will stink this season. It seems impossible that a guy could average 40 homers for seven seasons, then turn historically horrible. Well, it happened. Dunn thinks he knows why it happened. But three different people with the Chicago White Sox used the same phrase -- unprompted -- when talking about Dunn'...

Maybe Dunn Isn't Done

Adam Dunn's season was as historic a year ago as Babe Ruth's was in 1920. Nobody had ever seen a season like that before. But while Ruth's historic season was for all the right things, Dunn's was historic for all the wrong reasons. Nobody had ever seen a guy get 496 plate appearances and hit .159. Dunn struck out 36 percent of his at bats. Incredible. After averaging...

Jake Peavy: 2011 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

Author: Andrew SwansonA common recommendation from fantasy baseball writers this spring is to wait on pitching, as there is value to be found in the latter stages of fantasy drafts. While there are certainly a few blue chip starters like Roy Halladay and Felix Hernandez who command an early round pick, there are also late round value picks or sleepers who could pay dividends for...

Hot Stove Report: Adam Dunn

Author: Andrew SwansonThe 2011 Hot Stove Season has included numerous high profile free agent signings, including blockbuster deals signed by Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford, and the multi-player trade that brought Adrian Gonzales to the Red Sox.  Of the many deals this off-season, the free agent signing of Adam Dunn by the White Sox may bring the most value to fantasy owners. Adam...

White Sox 5, Mariners 0

Jake Peavy threw five hitless innings in his best outing of the spring and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 5-0 on Saturday. Peavy struck out five and walked one. The right-hander had allowed nine runs in 4 1-3 innings in his previous two starts. Eduardo Escobar, a candidate for a reserve role, hit a three-run homer off Hong-Chih Kuo to give the White Sox a 4-0 lead...

The BP First Take: Thursday, March 15 by Daniel Rathman

For most players, spring training stats are meaningless. As long as they are healthy, their swings or deliveries are in order, and their bodies are conditioned for the 162-game grind, all the March 0-fers and five-run duds will be forgotten come Opening Day. That’s not the case for Adam Dunn. No one in baseball needed a clean slate after last season more than the 32-year-old...
