Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 20

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below.

Waiver Wire Report: Week 19

Welcome to week 19 of the waiver wire report. Each week I will dig through the f/a pool to find the best potential free agents on waivers (under 50% ownership).

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below.

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Adam Jones – He had a great career peak from 2011-14. Then the batting average, runs, and RBI came down. To be fair, you can’t fully blame him for runs and RBI. Still, it […]

Minor League Report: Second Half

Minor League Report: Second Half

The halfway point, kind of, is in the rearview mirror as we exit the All-Star Break. That means a lot of trade rumors will be getting thrown around in the next two weeks. Quick side bar on that. This is one of my most annoying parts of the baseball season. Hearing and seeing reporters link […]

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Rougned Odor – Well, Odor is providing the same power and speed as last year, and he’s on pace to match both 2016 marks. However, what’s hurt his value for those who drafted him […]

Minor League Report: Midseason Top-100

Minor League Report: Midseason Top-100

It is finally time for the midseason prospect ranking update. A lot of names have taken a significant jump either up or down since the preseason.

Is it time to Sell-High on Greg Holland

Is it time to Sell-High on Greg Holland

Holland is in the midst of a remarkable comeback. In 2013 and 2014 he was one of the top closers in the league, totaling 93 saves and 193 strikeouts with an ERA and WHIP of 1.33 and 0.89 respectively. Then in 2015 things went downhill.
