Positional Power Rankings (September 30th)

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Has Mauer lived up to his price tag?

Either you’re fighting for any possible edge as you try to bring home a playoff win or championship ring or you’re accidently looking at this article while trying to do research because your stud quarterback got hurt. As the fantasy baseball season winds down, here is a look at one of the last Positional Power Rankings.

Catcher

1(1) Joe Mauer, MIN: Mauer is still the top catcher in the league, but Twins fans have to be slightly disappointed in his power numbers this year (only 9 HR) after signing Mauer to an $184 million contract. (more…)

Fantasy Power Rankings (September 28th)

Maddon's cerebral approach has Tampa Bay on top.

These rankings are based on a 300 point system, 150 for offensive production and 150 for pitching production. 30 points (1 point for each team) is the most points any team can receive in a given category. For instance, if the Rays lead the league in HR’s they will get 30 points for that category.

The 5 offensive categories used:

HR’s, RBI, Runs, Average, and SB’s

The 5 pitching categories used:

Wins, Saves, WHIP, ERA, and K’s

1.(─) Tampa Bay Rays (93-62): The Rays need to get their batting average up. For the team scoring the most runs in the league, imagine how much damage they’d do with more runners on the bases. (more…)

2010 Fantasy Baseball Risers and Fallers: Three Up, Three Down

Arencibia has been on an absolute tear.

Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia made his debut August 7th against Tampa Bay, and not even Arencibia could have predicted the outcome: 4/5, 3 R, 2 HR, 1 2B, 3 RBI

Wow.

If fantasy owners didn’t hit their waiver wire when they heard he was getting called up, there was most likely a mad rush following that performance.

Nobody would expect that from the encore.

What we have been greeted in his three games since can only be considered a disappointment.

Arencibia is hitless in 11 at bats since his dazzling debut. (more…)

Fantasy Baseball Risers and Fallers (Jun. 11th)

Miguel who?

We’re now two months into the fantasy season and odds are that your team is currently battling an injury or two. Perhaps you’re just looking to inject some new life into your lineup and ride a hot hand. Here at FBS, our risers and fallers detail the guys that are heating up and those that are cooling down, so you can outsmart all of the owners in your league.

Risers

1.Buster Posey, C/1B, San Francisco: The Giants simply couldn’t keep his bat in the minors any longer. Posey was called up last week and has certainly shown he belongs. He’s currently sporting a line of .450/1/6 in 40 Abs including seven multi-hit games in his last twelve. He also just hit his first homer Wednesday night, so he could be finding his groove. He’s had no problem adjusting to big-league pitching and doesn’t belong on any waiver wire at this point. Make sure he’s not available in your league, but if he is, scoop him up immediately, pat yourself on the back, and enjoy the ride. This kid’s for real. (more…)
