Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Joe Mauer 2.0, or even better?

You may have one of this week’s most valuable assets riding your pine. It’s time to check out the Top 5 Fantasy Matchups at FBS so you can make sure to take advantage of the upcoming favorable matchups for the guys on your squad.

Hitters

1.Buster Posey, C SF: .355/8/34/29

I absolutely love this kid. Posey has really lived up to the hype that surrounded him throughout his minor league career, already delivering 70 hits on the season in just 53 games. (more…)

Top 5 Fantasy Sleepers (July 30th)

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…)

Closer Report (July 28th)

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Axford already has six wins this season.

One thing that goes overlooked, as far as closers are concerned, is their effectiveness in staying focused when blowing a save. Often times when a reliever comes in and blows the lead for their team, they are either taken out or will proceed to lose the game. There is a BIG difference when it comes to blowing a save and blowing a game. It goes unnoticed often, but one thing that can make a great fantasy baseball closer, is their desire to remain in the game and hold their ground when they give up a couple of runs.

Think about it, if you have a closer who can add 5-10 wins a year it’s almost like having another starter going every week. We saw K-Rod throw 40+ pitches when he blew a save a couple of weeks ago, but he stayed in and recorded a win for the Mets. Read on to see who kept their composure this past week. (more…)

Pagan's owners are fist-pumping, too.

This week, we feature a group of hitters that nobody wanted to draft, a pitcher whose career was supposed to be over two years ago, and two lefty’s that used to be mistaken for twins on the mound. Let’s dig a little deeper and take a look at how our selections could help you take home this week in fantasyland. (more…)

Closer Report (Jul. 22nd)

Bailey has been brilliant thus far.

There isn’t much to complain about this week when it comes to closers performances over the last week. With only six blown saves for the entire MLB over the last seven days, let’s just say, its nitpicking time. This week it was very difficult to separate an A from a D, let alone a B. If your closer gave up more than one hit look down the list, if he gave up a run, ha, look waaay down the list. (more…)
