Andy Pettitte: How Does Lefty’s Return Impact »

Yesterday brought on some rather surprising news as the Yankees signed Andy Pettitte to a minor league contract. They already had six starting pitchers for five rotation spots, which had brought on questions as to who was going to be in and who was going to be out. The questions just got much more plentiful.Obviously there is no guarantee [...]

Fantasy Baseball 2012: Curtis Granderson Is a Risky »

Curtis Granderson not only had one of the best seasons in baseball in 2011, but no one could’ve predicted the numbers he was going to produce.  There’s a difference between expecting an impressive season and expecting this: 583 At Bats.262 Batting Average (153 Hits)41 Home Runs119 RBI136 Runs25 Stolen Bases.364 On Base [...]

Fantasy Baseball Buy Low or Ignore: Can Jorge Posada »

Moving out from behind the plate and working exclusively as the Yankees DH, Jorge Posada was supposed to be fantasy gold.  Despite being 39 years old, a player with his upside, coupled with being eligible at catcher…people were drooling over the potential for him to produce massive power while playing every day. The power has been [...]

Fantasy Baseball Buy Low or Bust: Can Brett Gardner »

Prior to the season, Brett Gardner was a popular selection for people looking for a pure speed option.There was talk of him hitting in the leadoff spot, making fantasy owners lust for the potential to score a significant number of runs. Over two weeks into the season, Gardner has been nothing short of a major disappointment. He is hitting just [...]

Should Fantasy Baseball Owners Sit Phil Hughes for His »

When I posted my projection for Phil Hughes prior to the season (click here to view), I noted that I was concerned with him heading into the 2011 season.  I do believe a lot of people got caught up with the fact that he was an 18-game winner, allowing that to overshadow some fairly evident flaws hanging over him. If you looked closely, you [...]

MLB Fantasy Baseball Fallout: Brett Gardner To Hit »

Heading into the season, while many felt the Yankees' best arrangement would be with Brett Gardner sitting atop the lineup, the constant chatter was that Derek Jeter would remain the leadoff hitter.  For better or worse, the Yankees legend was getting the limelight, despite a .348 OBP in the leadoff spot in ’10, while Gardner would be [...]

Fantasy Baseball First-Round Pick Analysis: Alex »

There was a time where Alex Rodriguez was not only a surefire first-round pick, but the best player in baseball.  The days of being the supreme force are surely behind him, but that certainly doesn’t mean that he is no longer one of the elite bats in the game.    2010 Statistics 522 At Bats .270 Batting Average (141 [...]

Fantasy Baseball 2011 Projection: How Should We Value »

Phil Hughes was the toast of baseball through May as he appeared nearly unhittable.  He was 6-1 over the first two months to go along with a 2.72 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 57 strikeouts over 56.2 innings of work.  Over the next four months, however, he was not nearly as effective. For the entire season, he posted the following line: 18 [...]

Fantasy Baseball First-Round Pick Analysis: Robinson »

For all the hype Robinson Cano had in 2010, when you compare his numbers from the past two years, the only major change was in his RBI.  As fantasy owners enter 2011 drooling over the numbers Cano posted just a year ago, they quickly forget that in 2009 he hit .320 with 25 home runs, 83 RBI and 103 runs.  Clearly, that’s not a [...]

Jorge Posada: Will He Prove Usable for Fantasy »

It is almost a foregone conclusion that Jorge Posada will spend significantly more time at DH in 2010, as his days as a full-time catcher appear to be over.While that should certainly help keep him healthy, which will make fantasy owners happy, does it really matter?  Does he bring enough to the plate that justifies using him, even in [...]
