Lance Berkman is set to fill the void left over by Josh Hamilton

Lance Berkman is set to fill the void left over by Josh Hamilton

Last week I gave some players to look out for this spring training. This week, I am going list some more sleepers to remember heading into this fantasy baseball season.

 

Lance Berkman (Tex) – Here is a familiar name we all know. Two years removed from a surprise renaissance year with St. Louis, Berkman proves that can still be productive. But, let’s face it; the first thing that comes to mind about Lance is “injury prone”.  He had a disaster final year with the Cards as he played in only 32 games. Now he is with the Texas Rangers and playing as one of the key parts to fill the void left over by Josh Hamilton. I am banking on him having a bounce back season as being the DH for the Rangers will lessen his chances of getting hurt. It is not a stretch to think he can have a 30 HR/90+ RBI campaign.

 

Kendrys Morales (LAA) – The deepest infield position this year has to be 1B. One player to keep an eye on is Morales. This player will forever be known for his game winning celebration in 2010 where he broke his ankle after he hit a walk off grand slam. (more…)

2012 Fantasy Baseball: When is it Time to Panic?

When is it Time to Panic?

When is it time to panic in a Roto league? A H2H league? Is it after Opening Week? Two weeks into the season? May 1? All-Star Break?

The answer is a bit more simple than you might think. It’s never too early or too late to panic. We all play fantasy baseball for fun and bragging rights and part of playing the game is managing your team as you see fit. So, if you have identified a problem with one of your players then it is time to address it. If one of your players is raking but you don’t think he can keep it up then it is time to see what you can get in a trade.

However, there are times to be patient and give a player time to ‘right the ship’ so to speak.

I’ve been getting add/drop questions since last Thursday so let’s just address some of those questions by taking a look at players who have either under-performed or outperformed expectations in Fantasy Baseball‘s Opening Week. (more…)
