Fantasy Baseball 2012: 2nd Half Projections for Stat Leaders

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

When drafting a fantasy baseball team, one dreams of having the categorical stat leaders in each stat. It obviously gives you a huge advantage when you ending up having the leaders. That allows you to fill in the rest of your roster to focus on some other category. If you dominate in homeruns and struggle in steals, and you are able to play 2 speed guys instead of one speed and one power guy, it just improves your roster flexibility. As we near the all-star break, are the guys leading the league for real, or should you think of trading them if you think it is just a hot start? (more…)

Adrian Gonzalez and the Red Sox have a lot to celebrate about.

Adrian Gonzalez is trailed by a slew of Yankees and Red Sox, fittingly, as those two teams compete for the top spot in the AL East.

Adrian Gonzalez has stepped up and become this week's AL Power Ranking's #1.

With how hot the Red Sox offense has been, it is not too surprising that they have a slew of players in this week’s American League Power Rankings.

Jose Bautista

Jose Bautista is back on track.

Jose Bautista is back, and blasting home runs once again. He has a big lead over the second-best home run hitter in the league, who is also mentioned in this list, and is a name that might surprise you. While Adrian Gonzalez has been knocked off of the #1 spot, that does not mean that the Red Sox are not well-represented in this week’s American League Power Rankings. These are the AL Power Rankings as of July 18th.

1) Jose Bautista – TOR (Previously: 4)

Jose Bautista was happy to see June go, and his bat has heated up with the weather in July. After hitting only 4 homers in June, Bautista has already hit 7 in July, to contribute to his Majors-leading 31 HRs total. (more…)

Another week, another update

You know the rules, another week of fantasy baseball means another week of fantasy injury updates. Read below to get a quick glance at who’s coming and going for week 16 of the fantasy regular season.

OF, Jose Bautista/Toronto Blue Jays: Jose Bautista has missed the last several games with a twisted right ankle. He hasn’t been placed on the DL yet, as the injury is not believed to be that serious. The Blue Jays believe that Bautista may have a good shot at returning for their next game on Tuesday the 19th at home against Seattle. For those in weekly leagues, I deem it safe to roll him this week. (more…)
