All-Star Balloting: Another Week of Power Rankings, Another Batch of Home Runs From Bautista

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011
Jose Bautista

Jose Bautista continues to hit, and hit with power.

As the Major League Baseball season passes the quarter mark and heads for the dog days of summer, the time has come to decide who is a contender, and who will fizzle away. Some of the hottest bats of April have seen their decline in May, while others needed a month to warm up. Some of the best have been doing it all season long, with no slump in sight. These are the best offensive fantasy baseball players in the American League as on May 23rd.

1) Jose Bautista – TOR (Last Week: 1)

As another week passes, more home runs stack up for the best player in baseball right now. Up to 19 home runs so far, Bautista is on pace to put up about 65 homers this season, and at this rate, he may just do it. (more…)

Jose Bautista Power Rankings

Jose Bautista refuses to give up top spot in AL Power Rankings

Just when it looked as though Bautista may be knocked out of the top spot as the best bat in the AL, he belted 3 homers in one game against the Twins. The season is a quarter of the way through, and the most prolific home run hitter in baseball right now is on pace for over 60 home runs. However, some of the best bats in the American League are creeping up in his rear view, vying for that top spot as the best bat in fantasy baseball. This is a list of the best hitters in the American League as of May 16th.

1) Jose Bautista – TOR (Last Week: 1)
Hot off of a game in which Bautista blasted 3 home runs, the most menacing right handed bat in the American League has opposing pitchers scratching their heads. (more…)

Adrian Gonzalez is Hot in Fantasy Baseball

Adrian Gonzalez has been on an absolute tear.

Here it is…the new “Hot” and “Not” list.  A couple of guys have returned to the “Hot” list for the second time this year, but everybody on the “Not” list is a newcomer this week.  With 40 games played so far in the 2011 season, we have a pretty good grasp as to who is, or who isn’t, performing at expected levels.  Check out the list below to see if any of the players are making an impact for your fantasy baseball team.

Fantasy Baseball Who’s Hot Week 6

Adrian Gonzalez, BOS 1B
Make it two weeks in a row on the “Hot” list for the newly acquired Boston first baseman.  Last week Gonzalez was on fire.  However, this week he took it to a whole new level.  In fact, I don’t even know if there is an appropriate word out there to describe just how scalding hot Gonzalez’s bat has been over this past week.   (more…)

Curtis Granderson's bat is on fire with 11 home runs already

A new week means new guys have the potential to land on the “Who’s Hot and Who’s Not” list.  The 2011 season has been an interesting one so far in fantasy baseball, and the players on the list below have helped contribute in making this season a good one (or a bad one for some…) so far.  Read below to see which players have been “Hot” and which players have been “Not” over the past week.

2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Old Faces in New Places

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Crawford has gotten off to a slow start in 2011.

Every year in this crazy world of professional sports, some huge free agent acquisition goes down, or someone gets picked up off waivers and we wonder how that player could even look in another uniform. Think of Drew Brees playing for the San Diego Chargers before he went to the New Orleans Saints, or even Johnny Damon signing with the Yankees in 06, which I thought was the craziest thing ever, especially after being so popular with the Boston Red Sox and supposedly hating the Yankees. What about all those so-called bloody games and brutal series’ they had together? Anyway, it’s hard to imagine seeing certain players in different uniforms, but it happens every year and we always wonder how it’s all going to pan out for the new team and player.
