2012 Fantasy Baseball: Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Outlook

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

What do the birds have this year in fantasy?

Baltimore will have an uphill climb from the basement of the AL East in 2012. When you play in the same division as New York, Boston and Tampa, the chances of them finishing in the top three of that division are slim at best.

The Orioles don’t have many appealing fantasy options in 2012. SS J.J. Hardy hit 30 HR last season but has seen his share of time dealing with injuries. None of them are serious, but they are the day-to-day types that cost him an average of 50 games a season. He makes a nice middle infielder with pop to have, but be ready with a backup plan if you own Hardy. (more…)

If even a quarter of these pitchers have fantasy value then there are 60 plus pitchers who are available to you in the draft. Conversely, there are only a few SS who have a chance to produce in 4 or more of your offensive categories. The same issue exists at 3B. Only a handful of players can guarantee you the stats you need to compete year in and year out in your coveted Fantasy Baseball Pool. So, ask yourself: ‘Why am I drafting a pitcher in the first 5 rounds?’ (more…)

2012 Fantasy Baseball: Paul Konerko Eyeing Another Big Season

Can Paul Konerko put up big fantasy numbers in 2012?

Since 1999, Paul Konerko has been one of the most consistent power hitters in Major League Baseball. Over the past 13 seasons, he has averaged 30 home runs and 95 RBIs per season for the Chicago White Sox.

The former Los Angeles Dodger has seemingly gotten better with age, posting back-to-back seasons of hitting .300+, 30 home runs and 100 RBIs. (more…)
