The Amazing Cardinal’s Rotation: Is it the real thing?

The Amazing Cardinal’s Rotation: Is it the real thing?

St. Louis is currently in first place in the majors with the next closest team being the cross-state AL Kansas City Royals at four games back. Given their track record and typical winning ways, there is no reason to think they won’t be able to continue this pace. I’m always trying to find trends and […]

The 2 and 2: Revisited

The 2 and 2: Revisited

It’s the All-Star break, and fantasy baseball’s regular season is 2/3 over. With the break underway, I wanted to take a day and revisit my “2 and 2” articles I had running for the first part of the season. It was a new concept I was trying out (promoting buying high and selling low). I […]

The Good, the Risky, and the Unknown

The Good, the Risky, and the Unknown

Today we will be looking at a few up and coming pitchers that may or may not be getting attention in fantasy leagues around the country. I’m going to focus on three in particular, one that is a relatively safe bet, one that I would call a riskier call and my personal dark horse pick […]

Upside versus Production and Sustainability

Upside versus Production and Sustainability

All too often perfectly reasonable players sit on the waiver wire while under performers and name brand players continue to get free passes for months on end into the season. Some of these guys are hurting you in multiple categories; meanwhile these lesser known guys could be helping you in more areas than they would […]

Super Two and the Shortstop, is it worth waiting on?

Super Two and the Shortstop, is it worth waiting on?

All of the annual “Super Two” talk has returned, but just how much of the hype should you buy into this year? In some cases it is probably worth it; in others, it might not be as clear as you think. This year’s “Super Two” cutoff looks to be around June 20. “Super Two,” in […]

Fresh Arms or Risky Mediocracy (FARM)

Fresh Arms or Risky Mediocracy (FARM)

Believe it or not, it’s officially June, and the production you are getting from your fantasy baseball team should be considered what you should expect on a week-by-week basis at this point. So we are always searching for ways to change that trend for the better. May and June are typically exciting times of the […]

The 2 and 2:  Tulowitzki, Kemp, Pollock, Harrison Edition

The 2 and 2: Tulowitzki, Kemp, Pollock, Harrison Edition

This week’s 2 and 2 article is focusing more on players that are probably borderline “sell low,” and, could probably be justified as, “buy low” almost as easily. For that reason, you may be taking a little more risk, but, you also should not be selling these guys for considerably less than market value. This […]

The 2 and 2: Gonzalez , Dickerson, Carpenter, Richards Edition

The 2 and 2: Gonzalez , Dickerson, Carpenter, Richards Edition

There comes a point when a player’s slow start or hot streak becomes the norm. As the season presses on, you and I will find it more and more difficult to buy high and sell low. This week is a precursor for that dilemma as I focus more on some players that will likely be […]

The 2 and 2: Sale, Teheran, Salazar, Keuchel Edition

The 2 and 2: Sale, Teheran, Salazar, Keuchel Edition

Continuing on this series premise, I will continue to identify players who I believe qualify as sell low / buy high candidates. Here are yet more players I bring attention to that are worth looking into. Chris Sale – I am really reluctant to place Sale on the sell low list, but I almost feel […]

The 2 and 2: Cano, Heyward, Travis, Pederson Edition

Last week I identified several players who I believe qualify as sell low/buy high candidates.  Today I continue on with that trend by presenting you with a  few more players worth looking into. Robinson Cano – Last week I spoke about Beltre and his slowing power, well this week I bring a similar situation in […]

The 2 and 2: Zimmermann, Beltre, McHugh, Arenado Edition

Selling low and buying high players are a lot like a 2-2 count. If you make a move and you are wrong, it will cost you significantly (strikeout). Alternatively, no one will tell you sitting on a top player that’s under performing was the wrong idea, so you get your free pass if you take […]

Imprisoned by the Ranks

Imprisoned by the Ranks

What I’m about to tell you is probably not going to make any sense, but I am going to say it anyways. You may not appreciate it; you may not even like it, and it might not even make any logical sense. That doesn’t change the fact that it may be true. Selling low and […]

The Panic Button

The Panic Button

Is it ever too early to press eject and bail out on your player of choice? That is one of the bigger questions in sports that most people would like to know. Unfortunately there is of course never a perfect answer which is a big reason why you have writers like me and others that […]

Predicting Value: Wheeling and Dealing

Predicting Value: Wheeling and Dealing

Opening day has finally arrived and baseball season is underway! Now that you have your team ready to go it’s time to actively try to find any edge you can over the rest of your league. But how? Well, I thought I would try a somewhat unique approach to how you may be managing your […]

The day you learned you were drafting all wrong

The day you learned you were drafting all wrong

Everyone is talking about how the MLB has shifted so much more toward pitching friendly over the past ten years and how much depth there is in pitching when compared to a few years ago. It only adds to the fuel the common school of thought that pitching should be considered in your draft after […]
