2011 Fantasy Baseball: What’s with all the inconsistency?

Friday, July 8th, 2011

What's with all the inconsistency out here?

One of the biggest things I’ve noticed in this wonderful game of fantasy baseball is that nothing is ever guaranteed.  Don’t get me wrong, nothing is ever guaranteed in any sport, but for some reason I just feel like in fantasy baseball, and even real-life baseball for that matter, nothing is ever, ever predictable.  For the 6 years that I’ve been playing fantasy baseball, the overall league stats by the half-way point in the season just never seem to play out the way that you would think they should.

For example, in my 16-team league, I’m currently matched up against the 15th place team and here I am losing to him going into Friday ball.  Yet looking at the overall team stats for the season, I’ve got him beat in almost every category by large margins.  I am the 2nd ranked team in that league, so theoretically, I should be crushing this guy, but I am not.  They say that the stats never lie, well in baseball they do!

2011 Fantasy Baseball: All-Star Selection Process Out Here Grinding Our Gears!

Elmo playin' along with the Joke of Derek Jeter making this years' All-Star team!

 

Ok, first of all, Elmo is on this photo because Derek Jeter making this year’s All-Star team is a joke.  Somebody please answer this question for me.  At 37 years of age, coming fresh off the DL this past Monday with a bum right calf muscle, hitting .256 with only 2 home runs and 20 RBI, how the heck did Derek Jeter get voted into the 2011 All-Star game?  What kind of All-Star game is this where the more deserving players who are having real All-Star seasons keep on getting snubbed out of making the team?  I always thought the All-Star game was for those players who are having All-Star type seasons.  What’s going on out here?

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Paul Konerko and Gaby Sanchez

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Talk about draft day values

At 35 years of age, Can Paul Konerko actually win the AL MVP trophy?  He’s certainly been playing like he should win it.  Today, Konerko is batting .327 with 21 homers, 59 RBI and 39 runs.  We aren’t even at the All-Star break yet, so he definitely looks to be on pace for a 30-35+ home run year, again!  Talk about draft day value.  I snagged this guy in round 5 of my fantasy baseball draft.  Now I know round 5 might not seem like a big bargain round, but when your round 5 pick is putting up numbers like a round 1 pick player should be, he’s a bargain.
