Adding Cameron Maybin From the Waiver Wire

View image | gettyimages.com While he looked like somewhat of a throw in from the Craig Kimbrel trade that took place the day before the season started, the Braves knew they had some potential in centerfield in Cameron Maybin and he has shown that potential over his first 100 plate appearances in Atlanta. Prior to this year, Maybin has been ravished with a number of injuries that...

Baseball's Luckiest Hitters

View image | gettyimages.com Earlier we focused on those MLB players with the worst luck to begin the season, looking at LD% and BABIP.  Now we look at those around the Majors hitting lots of fly balls, and still owning a BABIP above .300. There have been just 27 players since 2010 that finished the season with a FB% greater than 43% and a BABIP over .300. 15 of those happened...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 22

The boom-or-bust Brewers busted in Atlanta, which is always a very distinct possibility, but starter Danny Salazar came through as expected and I got a big payoff from a switch I made after lineups came out, subbing in Mike Aviles for Jose Ramirez. Originally I had Ramirez in there as he’d been batting second in Carlos Santana’s absence, but with Santana reappearing in Cleveland’s...

View image | gettyimages.com The following is a list of players in the MLB who are hitting line drives in more than 20% of their ABs, but have a BABIP below league average.

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, May 23-25

With Memorial Day coming this Monday, we have a rare full slate of baseball to kick off the fantasy week. Unfortunately, it’s one of the more mediocre sets of probable starters I can remember. There are 19 pitchers that rate average or better, but 12 of them rate between 100-110, meaning only a little above average. Both Saturday and Sunday have only eight such starts. At the...

5 Fantasy Veterans: Done or Dependable?

A popular debate every offseason is which players are ready for a decline due to their age. It’s about that time in the season to check in on some of those players who were hot topics of debate entering the season. Jimmy Rollins, SS, LAD Verdict: Dependable Rollins had by far the highest expectations of any player on this list and he’s failed to live up to them to this point...

Disgrace and Delight, Week 7: Taijuan Walker’s Plummet to Peasantry

Greetings! How's your week going? Swimmingly, I pray. How's mine? First off, thanks for asking, for it's much appreciated. I have a 88-year-old Grandmother with a severe alzheimer's and a broken hip, so things could certainly be better. That's without mentioning what is seemingly a wasted season for Corey Dickerson and sliding in at dead last in one my RCL leagues. Ahhhhh, the Elder...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Redrafting Rounds 1-2

View image | gettyimages.com Article written by Max Hadelman, but he’s off the grid so I’m posting this on his behalf. This is based on a 10 team league, so I am, essentially, making a new rankings list and redrafting the first two rounds of the league for the rest of the year. This is based on a standard league with 5 outfielders and the corner positions as well, with roto...

Bear or Bull: For Whom the Beltre Tolls

Congratulations are in order for Adrian Beltre. Last week, he became the newest member of the 400 home run club and only the 52nd player in MLB history to accomplish that impressive feat. Only three other active players - Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols, and David Ortiz - are in that company. To put it into historical perspective, Beltre is one of only four players to spend at least...

Closer Report, Week 7: Goodbye Mr. Happy, and a Snake Committee?

Big changes since last week kibitzed away and lot's of rankings went up and down.  The regions in the south seem to be upping the border patrol in regards to the save situation, as both Texas and Arizona are forming committees.  For this week, I would rather focus on the desert instead of the burbs of Arlington.  So with the demotion of Addison Reed and a full on committee type...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, May 21

On Tuesday I recommended a Rangers stack at Wade Miley and the Red Sox with the wind blowing out to left field. I also recommended Anibal Sanchez against the Brewers. Well, the Rangers were so-so and Sanchez blew up for about -7 points. Below is a screenshot of Tuesday’s Official Lineup with one notable change — it has James Shields instead of Sanchez. Why am I showing the Shields...

Fantasy Roundup: Rodon & Hutchison Struggle

I’ve only watched two of Carlos Rodon’s starts (his last two) and he’s obviously a very talented pitcher. The fastball sits 92-94 mph and can touch 97 and the slider will flash as a near-elite pitch. It’s that repertoire that has some scouts saying he’s the best left-handed pitcher prospect in baseball. However, I don’t see it; he looks more like a number three starter...
