  1. My top 20 players for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann ended his 2014 regular season on a significant high note by no-hitting the Miami Marlins Sunday, but it's still not enough to get him into my overall top 20 for next season. This theme has resonated...

  2. My 2014 fantasy baseball MVPs

    Eric Karabell

    When I spoke to Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley at the All-Star festivities in Minneapolis and asked him about his shocking statistical season, he made it seem like it was no big deal at all -- just a maturing player becoming smarter wi...

  3. Least Valuable Player awards for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    The Texas Rangers, playing better of late but still the worst team in the American League, started seven rookies in Wednesday's 5-1 victory over the Houston Astros. The Rangers have used a record number of players to get through the season, and while...

  4. Early 2015 top 10 pitcher rankings

    Eric Karabell

    I think we all enjoy baseball nights when aces are in action, even though I rarely own aces in the first place. Perhaps that's why I enjoy it, to some degree, not really worrying from pitch to pitch about my teams but just reveling in the glory of a ...

  5. Fantasy value of Orioles, Nationals players

    Eric Karabell

    Congrats to the first two teams to secure MLB playoff berths, as the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals, their stadiums separated by less than hour of drive time, won their respective East divisions Tuesday night. The Orioles received five pa...

  6. How to value deGrom for now, 2015

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton will be given the NL Rookie of the Year award for his flashy contributions in stolen bases, but New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom really should be earning more attention. Fa...

  7. Giancarlo Stanton's season done?

    Eric Karabell

    Thursday night was an oddly dark one around the major leagues as several players were hit by pitches and forced to leave games, with the biggest name being potential National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. The excellent Miami Marlins outfielder was st...

  8. Bounce back coming for low-OPS players?

    Eric Karabell

    None of the 152 hitters qualified for the batting title have a lower OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging) than Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart, but he wasn't really expected to aid a fantasy team this season. However, several others near the ...

  9. What to expect from Michael Wacha

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha never really had a chance to help fantasy owners much in his return to the mound Thursday, but that shouldn't be a problem moving ahead. Wacha tossed 50 pitches in three innings in what ended up being a ...

  10. Surprises abound on leaderboards

    Eric Karabell

    With a month of games to go in the regular season, the races for individual statistical honors are still up for grabs and in most cases they feature some surprising names. That's part of the fun of it for me. Anyone could have predicted Miami Marlins...

  11. Add Yadier Molina now

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals had to be hoping that when superb catcher Yadier Molina was lost for a few months with a thumb injury, they could merely remain within striking distance of the NL Central lead. Mission accomplished there. The Cardinals are NL ...

  12. Don't overrate Wil Myers' current value

    Eric Karabell

    It's difficult to tell if Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers would be owned in roughly half of ESPN's standard leagues, and be one of the most-added players over the past week, had he not won the AL Rookie of the Year award in 2013. It might sound u...

  13. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  14. Remaining value of Darvish, Bailey

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Wednesday, five of the top 20 starting pitchers by ESPN average draft position this season -- a quarter of them! -- had that annoying asterisk next to their name denoting their place on the disabled list, and as we found out earlier this wee...

  15. How to value the Rockies for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners are probably getting tired of the top Colorado Rockies players, especially slumping star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who -- while you were all participating in fantasy football mock drafts this weekend -- was again placed on the disabl...

  16. Masterson's new value as a Cardinal

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals acquired right-hander Justin Masterson from the Cleveland Indians for minor league outfielder James Ramsey Wednesday, a day before Thursday's trading deadline. Although I've never been a big Masterson fan, he really could impr...
