Hanley Ramirez’s Huge Muscles Amaze David Ortiz, Red Sox Teammates

This embed is invalid" /> Hanley Ramirez returned to Boston older, wiser and much, much bigger. Ramirez, listed at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, looks more like an NFL linebacker than an MLB outfielder these days. The Red Sox are hoping Ramirez’s new physique will lead to better durability and more power, but for now, the 31-year-old’s teammates can’t...

OBP Leagues: No Stopping Short Here

Looking over Shortstop in OBP leagues is not pretty. Even the top-5 gets ugly quick; Troy Tulowitzki (.432), Hanley Ramirez (.369), Ben Zobrist (.354), Danny Santana (.353), and Starlin Castro (.339) round out the top-5. The top guys tend to have good OBP numbers and will be a plus at the position while there are a few guys throughout the rankings that will kill your OBP...

How Did They Get Here:? The Miami Marlins

Last week I looked at the Atlanta Braves and tracked their progression as a franchise within the last 5 years. This week, I will continue my analysis of the National League East by looking at the team that finished 8 games under .500 and 4th in the division last year, but seems to be on the rise: the Miami Marlins. In 2010, the Marlins finished the season 80-82. Over the next three...

The Boston Red Sox: A Study in Extremes

Trying to predict the American League East in 2015 seems about as straightforward as solving a Rubik’s Cube while blindfolded. This division looks as competitive as ever, even though every team has potentially fatal flaws. After a busy off-season, the popular pick to win the East, seemingly by default, is the Boston Red Sox.

Fooled By The Name Brand Shortstops

Fantasy owners often like to have a name to associate with their picks in a draft or their purchases at an auction. Shortstop easily calls up the following names: Troy Tulowitzki, Jose Reyes and Hanley Ramirez. We all have associations with the names, but Tulo's injury history cost my team valuable points the last three years. He was 11% below an average-producing SS in my 18...

Friday Links: Red Sox outfield surplus biggest question heading into spring traing
