LATEST STORIES FROM SONS OF ROTO

**** I Do: Lamb of God (a.k.a., Me)

We’re over a week into the fantasy baseball season, but I haven’t dusted off the keyboard to throw something up until now. The reason? My rosters stayed mostly intact from draft day, with a couple of moves here and there, but nothing too crazy. Of course, I’m aware that our loyal readers need something, anything from your boy Daddy Starbucks with the season firmly underway...

Fantasy Baseball 2015 Cheat Sheet, or, “Awww Skeet, Skeet, Cheat Sheet!”

Just heard Starbonell’s cheat is out…              Photo Credit: Keith Allison If you read my work, you know that I much prefer the auction format to a snake draft. The reasons are plentiful (even playing field for all owners, less luck involved, etc.), but we won’t get into all that now. Despite my feelings on snake drafts, I fully understand that a large percentage...

Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitcher Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

Wheelin’ & Dellin… Photo Credit: Keith Allison In the final installment of “Tiers, Not Fears,” we have landed at relief pitching. A lot of fantasy owners hate having to deal with closers, but not me. While you read a lot of “don’t pay for saves” idioms being thrown out there, the fact is, if you play in a league that uses closers, you HAVE to pay for saves. Me...

Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

Get on the Cole Train…       Photo Credit: Johnmaxmena2 We’re not even through March yet and already some notable starting pitchers have gone down with injuries. Yu Darvish and Zach Wheeler highlight the list, but believe that by the time the calendar turns to May, there will be a few more joining them on the DL. Yup, starting pitching is a *****. Fortunately, like your...

Fantasy Baseball Outfield Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

The player so nice they named him Bryce…     Photo Credit: Miss Chatter Most fantasy baseball heads are of the belief that the outfield position is deep. If you play in a basic 12-team league that utilizes three OFs then sure; you can literally rotate streaky players in and out of your last outfield spot (or two) and get by. You don’t even have to really research the position...

Fantasy Baseball Third Base Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

Longlorious…     Photo Credit: Keith Allison There’s not much to say about the third base position. Here it is: 1) It’s not as deep as first base. 2) It is deeper than the rest of the infield offensive positions. 3) Like your mom, it’s top-heavy. 4) The fall-off of talent is precipitous when the ranks hit the 20s. Only time I cry? When it’s crocodile tiers son...

Fantasy Baseball Shortstop Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

Gets hurt every year, yet is still a top tier player at his position. Goddamn the shortstop position sucks in fantasy…          Photo Credit: SD Dirk If you thought the second base position sucked, you haven’t had a chance to see this year’s crops of shortstops. I’ve seen some steaming piles of ****, but this is the steamiest pile I’ve peeped in a while.  Think...

Is There Anymore Room For Me In Jean Segura’s Bandwagon?

Jeans are always in style… Photo Credit: Steve Paluch Fantasy owners have a short-ass memory. Entering drafts at this time last year, Jean Segura was considered just a notch below guys like Troy Tulowitzki and Jose Reyes. After a brutal 2014 season that saw him hit .246 with just five HRs and 20 steals, he’s being ignored more than a sensical plot device in Dexter. Clearly...

Fantasy Baseball Second Base Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

There’s a new top dog at second…      Photo Credit: Keith Allison Raise your hand if you hate drafting for second base. I know most of you *********** got a paw in the air. The negative connotations surrounding second base center around the fact that the position traditionally has been weak for fantasy purposes. This year is no different. Sure there are some intriguing options...

Homeless Heroes: Devon Travis

With his thumb in the air and a full bandana of worldly possessions on the edge of his stick, Devon Travis enjoys his time as a hobo. He sees it’s the little things that count. The wind in his hair. A good night’s summer sleep by the bridge, with the gurgling of water serving as Mother Nature’s lullaby. Wild nights with his friends even give him the feeling that he’s...

Fantasy Baseball First Basemen Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

A fifth round pick is not fit for Prince… Photo Credit: shgmom56 The first base position is like your mom, it looks easy to fill, and in most cases it will wind up being a slam dunk; but one misstep could leave you with a serious case of blue balls. Yes, first base is (and forever will be) the deepest of the infield offensive positions in fantasy baseball. That doesn’t take...

Pearce of My Heart: The Steve Pearce Story

Looks easy, goes hard…            Photo Credit: Keith Allison 31-year-old Steve Pearce was just a regular joe. He played professional baseball. He probably had ho’s in various area codes (remember, he was a journeyman prior to last year). He made a blue collar-like $850,000 a year. Yup, a regular Bro Six-Pack, just like you or me. Things were going well enough for Pearce...

Eric Hosmer Sucks: The Sequel

Does this look like the face of a winner? No, no it does not….       Photo Credit: Charles Sollars I’m a bit of a trail-blazer when it comes to ******** on Eric Hosmer. I was on the case prior to the 2012 season, when Hos-mania was at an all-time high. My reasoning for his sucking back then was an unimpressive minor-league power track record, coupled with a modest rookie...

Fantasy Baseball Catcher Rankings 2015, or, “Tiers, Not Fears”

View image | gettyimages.com The words “fantasy catcher” conjure up thoughts of largely ineffective players in the minds of fantasy owners (unless your a jacked gay dude, in which case names like Bruno Mars or Daniel Radcliffe might cum to mind). This year though, the position is actually looking pretty solid. Power is famously down around the league, yet there are a...

Homeless Heroes: Peter O’Brien

Get used to seeing this trot… Photo Credit: slgckgc Peter O’Brien has yet to play at AAA. Peter O’Brien is not a scouts darling (mostly because of his poor defense behind the plate). Peter O’Brien strikes out a lot. If you hear anything about Peter O’Brien coming into the season, it will be mostly negative. Yes, he’s a career 26.5 K% “artist” in the minors whose...

Jonathan Lucroy Is Merely Mediocre

He’s gonna be copping a squat on anyone who drafts him…                                              Photo Credit: hj_west For some reason, Jonathan Lucroy is considered a top two or three catcher entering the 2015 fantasy baseball season. I’ve tried looking at this through glasses so rose-colored that Elton John would weep with jealousy, but I just...
