Ortiz still has plenty of pop.

Another week of fantasy baseball means another week of surprises and intriguing matchups. Owners are searching for that diamond in the rough, so allow me to articulate my strategy. I look at three factors: current play, season stats, and matchups. This is the FBS recipe for success. (more…)

Rios is making GM Kenny Williams look great.

Sometimes the best sleepers are the easy starts, so it’s best not to over think who to play and just go with your gut. So many times we contemplate who to start and sit when the easy choice is right in front of us. Those are my fantasy baseball sleepers this week; allow me to showcase some of the better options.

AL MVP- Miguel Cabrera, 1B, Detroit Tigers. Cabrera is in the mix for the Triple Crown. Mentioning someone’s name and Triple Crown in the same sentence makes it easy deciding who the midway MVP is.

Somebody has to step up to score some runs due to the injuries to Placido Polanco and Chase Utley. I believe Rollins is the prime candidate. (more…)
