These updates will be more yawn-inducing than usual if the same guys keep showing up. There is no way Brandon Beachy (owned in 55% of Yahoo fantasy baseball leagues), J.J. Hardy (66%) and Vernon Wells (49%) should be as available as they are. Beachy has 20 strikeouts (20!) in just 12 innings pitched in his […]

There are certain players that make these updates at least once per year and Ty Wigginton is probably the mayor of that camp. He almost always qualifies at a wealth of positions and almost always puts up a string like he’s currently enjoying. For Colorado, Wigginton has 1B, 2B, 3B and OF eligibility in Yahoo […]

I had to stop and ask myself, “what defines this position in 2011?” For me, the answer came quickly: “I’m drafting Evan Longoria, David Wright or Ryan Zimmerman.” Those are the big three in my opinion (ADP has A-Rod splitting them up). Frankly, if I don’t […]
When we all sat down at our computers or draft tables this fantasy baseball preseason we were all geniuses. Our sleepers were still ready to wake, and our bouncebackers still had bounce. We waited until the perfect moment to call out that prospect we just knew would get an early call-up. Now it’s May 21. […]
There were nearly enough pitchers to have a top 10 of their own Saturday, but it was difficult to pick just one for the intro. Roy Halladay pitched another complete-game shutout and struck out six. He allowed just four baserunners (one walk) in improving to 5-1.
