2015 Fantasy Dynasty Catcher Rankings

Catcher is without a doubt one of the most difficult positions to plan for in a dynasty league since prospects at the position take so long to develop. The position itself requires so much game planning with the pitching staff that the offense sometimes doesn’t show up until the player’s mid-20s (e.g., Devin Mesoraco). You’ll see this reflected in my rankings as I’m much...

How should the Cincinnati Reds approach the offseason?

The 2014 Cincinnati Reds were crushed by injuries. Joey Votto missed 60% of the season and wasn’t exactly healthy for the time he was on the field. Devin Mesoraco missed a month over two different DL trips. Brandon Phillips missed a month. Jay Bruce missed two weeks but never recovered once he came back. Tony Cingrani missed nearly half of the season. Homer Bailey missed a third...

2014 Catcher Recap: The Flop Five

The 2014 fantasy baseball season has ended. I’m not one for superlatives or useless “Who was this season’s fantasy MVP?!” stuff because — let’s be honest — that doesn’t help you moving forward. But end-of-season recaps are a necessity as they bring a sense of closure and tie up any remaining loose ends, so over the next week or two we’ll recap what we saw from each...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball Catcher Rankings

Jonathan Lucroy was the real Catcher MVP this season.  Carlos Santana played more 1B, than 3B, which is the position he was supposed to shift too at the start of the season.  His position changed opened up playing time for Yan Gomes who hit 21 home runs and hit .278 to finish 4th* among catchers. Brian McCann hit 23 home runs as a member of the Yankees, but his .286 OBP was...

It turns out the Pirates have an afternoon game today (and it’s not going well)

About ten minutes ago, I walked into lab and immediately remembered that the Pirates have an afternoon game today. The Reds were in the process of scoring three runs in the first inning when I turned it on, so that’s where we are right now: the Reds are up 3-0 after a weird review at the plate in which I’m still not sure if they were reviewing whether Devin Mesoraco was safe...

Devin Mesoraco: The next Johnny Bench?

Some might say that Devin Mesoraco wears his feelings on his sleeve and if he doesn't he certainly wears them on his chest. The red jersey Mesoraco wears under his Cincinnati Reds uniform every game says, "I Play to Win." That he does. And while the Reds haven't done a whole lot of it this year, the 26-year-old catcher has done his part and sprinkled in a whole...

Top Fantasy Waiver Wire Adds for Week 26

Does anyone else want to hurt Devin Mesoraco? I was in line to solidify my spot in my league’s championship game, and then HE had to go and hit a 3-run homer in Sunday night’s matchup with the division rival Cardinals. I usually root against the Cards but from now on I will shake my fist from afar at Mesoraco every time I hear his name. Some of the players mentioned below might...

Mesoraco has proven Reds right

CINCINNATI -- The ball flew into the left field stands at Great American Ball Park with authority. Most everything Devin Mesoraco does comes with authority. The Reds catcher isn't rah-rah.
