  1. Saints, Colts playoff performance affect '10 drafts

    Eric Karabell

    I find the phenomenon of overrating actual real-life playoff performance in future fantasy drafts is more prevalent in fantasy baseball than in fantasy football. Then again, lasting impressions count for a lot in fantasy sports, just like everyday li...

  3. Relief update: Marlins' depth lowers Nunez's value

    Eric Karabell

    A few weeks ago, I gave my early 2010 rankings for the top 25 fantasy baseball relief pitchers, and I've made just a few adjustments to them since then, as not much has happened. I mean, this endless "Johnny Damon Watch" -- where will he not be ...

  4. Hart remains legit 20-homer/20-steal candidate

    Eric Karabell

    It wasn't long ago that Corey Hart was one of the hottest fantasy baseball choices in the game, the rare hitter with 30-homer, 30-steal upside. The Milwaukee Brewers outfielder posted a 20/20 season in those two categories in both 2007 and 2008 ...

  5. Trends and observations from our first mock draft

    Eric Karabell

    I've played fantasy baseball seemingly forever, and one might think someone like me wouldn't get too excited about a mock draft in January. Well, that's just not true! I love drafting, pretty much no matter the sport, no matter the mon...

  6. Sheets a sleeper in Oakland, but he's also risky

    Eric Karabell

    Just last Friday, I blogged that from a fantasy baseball aspect, Ben Sheets potentially joining the Texas Rangers wouldn't be such a great thing, and that I would prefer he choose a larger, safer home ballpark, like where the New York Mets play....

  7. Value of Damon, Sheets tied to their destinations

    Eric Karabell

    Kudos to Octavio Dotel! The 36-year-old relief pitcher took his dormant fantasy baseball value and became quite relevant Thursday, signing a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Was this a big-money deal? Not really. Does he have a chance f...

  8. Mauer, Lincecum make for strong second round

    Eric Karabell

    Way back when -- OK, it was only nine days ago -- I ranked and explained my top 10 for the 2010 fantasy baseball season, and the feedback was excellent. I thank you, kind readers, for that. No, I don't expect everyone to agree with my thoughts, ...

  9. Dye to the Cubs? Works for fantasy owners

    Eric Karabell

    Johnny Damon isn't the only interesting free-agent outfielder still looking for work. For the first four months last season, Jermaine Dye was a valuable fantasy baseball resource, with 23 home runs, 63 RBIs and a good-enough .281 batting average...

  10. Cards' Freese ready to emerge ... now

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa obviously has had a lot to say this week, but I don't think his reflections on Mark McGwire will affect the 2010 fantasy baseball season much. Rather, I would like to hear his thoughts on the team's...

  11. Top-10 rankings: Heavy on power, missing Mauer

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome back, fantasy baseball owners! It's 2010. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in a mere 40 days, and I'm ready to go, needless to say. I'm counting the days. Nothing against the fun offseason, but I'd rather s...

  12. Week 2 decision time on rankings, lineups

    Eric Karabell

    You don't need to love football to have a good fantasy football team, but I think it helps if you actually enjoy the game a little. I have a friend who is a huge baseball fan -- well, who isn't, right? -- and he always does well in fantasy ...

    It's back. Back in the day here at ESPN Fantasy, I used to write a popular fantasy football and baseball blog, and now I'm pleased to announce I'm writing it again, just in time for this pigskin season. There's always a lot to di...

  16. Rolen helpful in Cincy; can Encarnacion rebound?

    Eric Karabell

    It might look odd that the free-falling Cincinnati Reds were buyers on trade deadline day, picking up Scott Rolen from the Toronto Blue Jays, but this is a move for 2010 as well. Rolen is one of the top fielding third basemen in baseball, and he was ...
