  11. Garza a better fit in Chicago than Texas

    Eric Karabell

  12. What's wrong with Justin Verlander?

    Eric Karabell

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios did something noteworthy Tuesday night, tallying six hits in as many at-bats, while adding a pair of stolen bases and an RBI. The oft-overlooked Rios is rightly owned in all leagues, and good for him; he's provi...

  16. Don't dismiss Adam Dunn, Dan Uggla

    Eric Karabell

    Relying on batting average drains such as Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam Dunn and Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla can be painful for any fantasy owner, but when they're hitting for power -- like they were Monday night -- they can still ...
