    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Sometimes a minor trade occurs in the final days of spring training and it gets buried because the names aren't interesting to fantasy owners. So it is that we report the Braves traded Josh Anderson to the Tigers on Monday for Rudy Darrow. Ho hu...

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

  3. Camp notes: Unit, Lindstrom, Manny hurting

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    There's plenty of time. That seems to be the prevailing opinion from managers who are dealing with injured ballplayers. Sure, if this was July we might see Randy Johnson or Manny Ramirez making visits to the disabled list, but in mid-March, wi...

  4. Soap opera in Denver? Just change the station

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    My six-year-old daughter came home from school recently and complained about her best friend, saying they can't get along, that she can't play with her at recess, had to find another table to eat lunch at, and more travesties. One of them c...

  5. Camp notes: Beware Mauer's back woes

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Normally fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned about a big-time fantasy option possibly missing a week or two of the regular season. However, in the case of Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer, an MRI scheduled for Tuesday could prove to be bi...

  6. Benson's return to Cincy not that exciting

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Even after the way Cedric Benson flamed out in Chicago, I thought he'd end up finding work again. Just about everyone, no matter how much of a disappointing high draft pick they are, eventually gets another chance or two. I just wasn't so s...

  7. Ward gets a real chance to shine

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Right about this time last year, a smallish power back who averaged more than 5 yards per carry but didn't get his chance at significant playing time with the San Diego Chargers left to become the primary back in Atlanta. That worked out OK for ...

  8. Camp notes: Cabrera a fine pickup for A's

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    While Manny Ramirez continues to play hard-to-get, the other high-profile unemployed baseball players are desperately seeking work and agreeing to stunning contracts they probably thought they never would have to face. It is, after all, March. Not mu...

  9. Housh gets chance to redeem himself

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    T.J. Houshmandzadeh certainly wasn't the best fantasy bargain in the 2008 season, as several key Bengals players around him crumbled and led to his falling out of the top 30 for wide receivers in fantasy points. He was, after all, a top-10 wide ...

  10. Marshall's value tumbles with latest incident

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Brandon Marshall has been in trouble on too many occasions since joining the Denver Broncos, enough that the NFL suspended him at the start of the 2008 season for repeated offenses. The suspension was originally supposed to be for three games but was...

  11. Camp notes: Injury to Wells a bad omen

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Only twice in seven full seasons in the major leagues has Vernon Wells finished as an above-average fantasy outfielder, and his bid to make 2009 one of those seasons took a hit with the news Monday that he could miss most of spring training with a ha...

  12. Camp notes: Reyes, Ramirez not leading off?

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Welcome back to the ESPN Fantasy spring training blog, a daily compendium of what's happening in baseball's preseason! Since pitchers and catchers just reported over the weekend -- and really, shouldn't that in itself be some sort of h...

  13. Nationals beef up lineup with consistent Dunn

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Sometimes when fantasy owners or analysts try to make a point about a player, they incorrectly use the word "always." You know, such as when someone says Josh Hamilton always gets hurt, Matt Holliday always steals a lot of bases, Tim Lincecum always ...

  14. Perez stays with Mets; O's get Wigginton

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    It was getting tough to project the Mets as the best team in the NL East, with their pitching staff consisting of three starting pitchers and a prayer, but now that Oliver Perez has been brought back ... OK, there will be still be some praying, but i...

  15. Garland to continue getting ugly wins in Arizona

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Real baseball teams need innings eaters to get them into the sixth and seventh innings. Those pitchers don't need to be Johan Santana, just durable, somewhat reliable and capable of keeping their ERA below 5. On good teams with offense and a str...

  16. Will Cubs let Heilman start?

    Eric Karabell, ESPN.com

    Aaron Heilman has made it pretty clear he'd rather be a starter than a relief pitcher. Just six weeks after the Mets dumped him on Seattle in the J.J. Putz heist, Heilman is on the move again. This time, he's joining forces with Lou Piniell...
