Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 20

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. Eddie Rosario – I’ve liked him for several seasons, but a lack of playing time and the inability to put everything together has forced him to develop slowly. However, he has made important steps […]

Replacements for Injured Staring Pitchers

Replacements for Injured Staring Pitchers

The trade deadline has passed for most leagues.  Playoffs are on the horizon and may even be starting soon in leagues that try finish up a bit early.  Many teams are struggling with injuries, particularly injuries to their pitching staff.  James Paxton just went onto the DL, the Yankees plated both Sabathia and Tanaka on […]

The Great Debate: Rhys Hoskins vs Dominic Smith

The Great Debate: Rhys Hoskins vs Dominic Smith

This past week two of the premier prospects in baseball got called up. Rhys Hoskins and Dominic Smith. If you had either one you were ecstatic. If either was available in your league you most likely ran to your computer to add one of them. This sparked the great debate in fantasy this week and […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 19

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). Some are good for a quick boost, others could be good long-term additions, and there will be a few speculative adds thrown in there as […]

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Eduardo Nunez – Changing teams hasn’t slowed him down — if anything, he’s picked it up a bit since joining Boston. The super utility glove is also providing much-needed batting average and steals, and […]

Bauer and Estrada: A pair of second half bloomers

Bauer and Estrada: A pair of second half bloomers

Baseball, by nature, is a sport of luck. In any game, you can see a fielder simply be just out of position on a double play ball, a pitcher can throw a curveball out of the zone that gets hit into the gap, hard hit balls will still find gloves anywhere on the field. Of […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 18

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 […]

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Chris Taylor – He’s one of the biggest surprises for fantasy owners this year, and most of us had no problem picking him up as a free agent. Maybe you’ve been waiting for him […]

Minor League Report: The Trade Deadline is Approaching

Minor League Report: The Trade Deadline is Approaching

This is the last edition of the report before the major league trade deadline. This time next week many prospect, as well as MLB players obviously, will be changing teams. There are very few times we will actually not like the landing spot for a prospect. The only case being if a pitching prospect ends […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 16

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Andrew McCutchen – Knee injuries have dropped his stolen base total. A thumb injury was the likely culprit for his bad batting average in 2016. As McCutchen enters his thirties, owners wonder whether he […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 15

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. Some guys might be in roughly the same area, but with graduates from the list, it equates to a drop. In this midseason class I see a significant drop […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 14

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 14

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Elvis Andrus – The reliable speedster often disappointed owners because he seemed to have the ability to reach 30+ steals, but usually totaled no more than 25 swipes. This year he has busted out, […]

Minor League Report: Pitching Prospects

Minor League Report: Pitching Prospects

As I started compiling names this week for people in consideration, I noticed I was really pitcher heavy. So why not just do an all pitcher version this week. No one loves investing in pitching prospects. There is so much risk, and even when they do make it to the majors they are valued less […]
