Top 5 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers (May. 9th)

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Brett Gardner leads the league in stolen bases

1. Brett Gardner, OF, New York Yankees

One man’s misfortune, is another man’s opportunity. In this case, the young outfielder is making most of the opportunity he has been given with Curtis Granderson on the DL. Gardner, who has been platooning in the OF, is not the Yanks’ everyday center fielder.In 27 games this season, Gardner has a .348 average with 31 hits and 24 runs. Most stunning number is 14.. Gardner is leading the league in stolen bases. No signs at all of Gardner slowing down. Even when Granderson comes back, Gardner will see a huge increase in time in LF with Randy Winn struggling mightily. Gardner is slowly becoming a fan favorite in the Bronx.

Fantasy Baseball Top 5 Position Rankings (May. 5th)

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Rookie Austin Jackson leads the league in hits. Are the Yankees regretting trading this young stud?

Who’s cracking the Top 5 list for our player position rankings this week? I can tell you who is not and that would be the best catcher in the game, Joe Mauer. Mauer is battling a bruised heel which had him sitting on the bench over the weekend. A big injury risk this week at this point. If he is healthy, he is arguably the most important fantasy player for owners. If you’re a gambler, take the chance on him.

Biggest surprise so far this season belongs to Austin Jackson. Leading the league in hits so far. He shows no signs of slowing down.

Fantasy Closer Report (April. 28th)

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Matt Capps has been sensational this season for the Nats.

By: Zac Fluewelling

Grade: A

Matt Capps (Nationals): 3-for-3 in save opportunities, Capps has been the best closer in the game! Possibly the biggest steal in all drafts, Capps added 9 strikeouts while not allowing a run. I am not sure if you should sell high at this point or keep the stud on your team: I’ll let you be the judge.

Matt Lindstrom (Astros): Lindstrom is finally getting some props, the almost forgotten Astro closer of the first week was a perfect 3-for-3 in save chances. Lindstrom gave up three hits and one walk while striking out two.

Francisco Rodriguez (Mets): K-Rod is finally making an impact this year. With almost a perfect week, Rodriguez struck out 5 while going perfect on all three save chances. He gave up just one hit in three appearances.
