Found June 10, 2012 on Win My Fantasy League:
With players like Lucroy, Avila, Ramos, Hernandez, Soto, and Iannetta on the DL, fantasy baseball owners may be struggling to find a decent replacement for the catcher position.  You may even have a guy like Kurt Suzuki who’s just been plain disappointing.  I offer Wilin Rosario as a remedy for your troubles.  Rosario hasn’t seen a lot of at-bats this season but has proven he belongs in the big leagues since fellow catcher Ramon Hernandez went down with an injury.  Nine of Rosario’s 28 hits this season are home runs.  He has added eight doubles and 25 RBI in his 116 at-bats in 2012. Rosario is available in 85 percent of ESPN fantasy baseball leagues and 79 percent of Yahoo! fantasy baseball leagues. Written by winmyfantasyleague.com contributor Zach Greubel.

Rockies' starters' troubles are startling

The Rockies' rotation is in tatters. The overall staff ERA is an unsightly 5.31 because of the starters' ineffectiveness. Their ERA is 6.17, which is historically bad. The highest ERA for the Rockies' starters is 6.19 in 1999, Jim Leyland's forgettable one season as the team's manager. That team lost 90 games, topped only by the 95 losses in 1993, the Rockies...

Buy or Sell: Rosario and Goldschmidt

Wilin Rosario – Rosario is who we thought he was. Plenty of power, but a long swing and well below average plate discipline. Over the last week or so, however, Rosario has been on fire, hitting well over .300 with two home runs in his last six games. Just like any hot streak for any player, the sample size is too small to draw from, but the overall body of work is telling. Rosario...
