It has been a long awaited four months and baseball is finally here! Now that baseball is back, it means that fantasy baseball has arrived. It is time to start drafting teams, but before you start drafting, you need a plan of attack. You need to know whom you will get the best value for and whom you just need to avoid altogether. My advice, look for sleeper picks that...
Pedro Alvarez has been out the last few days with discomfort in his right elbow, according to a Pittsburgh Pirates press release. The injury is a “mild hyperextension” that was caused by a swing a few days ago. The Pirates say that Alvarez will miss a few more games, but can still participate in some workouts “as tolerated.”

We all know Pedro Alvarez had a pretty rough year in 2014, as he hit just 18 home runs, half of his total of 36 in 2013. That was almost the whole story, as hitting home runs (usually impressive, towering ones) is what Pedro Alvarez does well. Unfortunately, he happened to time the failure of […]

This is an unpopular opinion, but I think there’s a decent chance that Pedro Alvarez will be the exact first baseman the Pirates need him to be in 2015. This is buried well underneath the throwing problems, the position change, the power outage, and the foot injury, but in 2014, Pedro Alvarez finally did the two things that everyone has been saying that he needed to do to become...

It’s safe to say that Pedro Alvarez’s stock in Pittsburgh is down, at least among Pirates fans. That may even be true for the organization as well. Alvarez has struggled this year at third base, leading to a move across the diamond to first. He has also seen a drop in his power numbers, which led to Josh Harrison and Ike Davis getting playing time over him.
Despite the struggles...
Through his struggles on defense and league lead in errors, Pedro Alvarez continues to battle something that has haunted him all season long for the Pittsburgh Pirates. No one knows exactly what is wrong with Alvarez, but everyone still holds their breath when he fields a groundball at third base, hoping that the 2013 NL […]

The Pittsburgh Pirates avoided arbitration with Pedro Alvarez signing him to a 1-year deal worth $4.25 million dollars, a hefty raise over his 2013 $700,000 earnings.
After hitting a career-high 36 home runs, Alvarez has rightfully earned his raise. Pittsburgh controls the slugger’s rights through 2016, but...
