Last week I took a look at who I felt was deserving of consideration for the 2011 American League All-Star Team. This week, let's look at National League players deserving of the honor. The same criteria will hold true. These players are evaluated upon the season they are having thus far in 2011. P..
Oh! What a Relief! Bolstering Your Fantasy Baseball Team with Relief Pitchers
Posted on 06/15/2011 10:00:57 PM
Most fantasy baseball owners put a lot of stock in starting pitchers. And they should. Lots of innings mean lots of strikeouts (unless you choose pitchers with low strikeout numbers) and a chance at some decent win totals as well. In contrast, there is also a lot of emphasis placed on closing pitch..

As I have said time and time again, my favorite thing about fantasy baseball is how much fun it can be. Some players can provide their owners with a great deal of joy. Imagine the giddiness fantasy baseball owners experienced watching Barry Bonds crush his way through the Senior Circuit in 2001 (I ..

Picking players deserving of the All-Star team can be a dicey challenge.

I will never forget the first season I got involved in fantasy baseball. The year was 1992 and my first pick was an up-and-coming first baseman from the Chicago White Sox named Frank Thomas. I was hooked. Following “Big Frank” that season and watching him rake his way through the America..
“K” it Forward or Put it in Play?

When analyzing fantasy baseball pitchers, there is often the tendency to highly value those who strike out a lot of batters. But is it possible to over-value this stat? Probably not, but it got me to thinking. Since part of the fun of playing this game is trying to pick out the fantasy baseball dia..

Baseball is a funny game. Because of all the quirks and odd statistics available, it is often easy to prove or disprove just about any theory going. One theory that has been around seemingly forever is the idea of the “Sophomore Slump”. There are lots of articles written and lots of sta..

One of the best parts of fantasy baseball is analyzing who is over-performing and who is under-performing.
