  1. Yankees hitters to buy and sell

    Eric Karabell

    A mere five players hit more than the 34 home runs outfielder Alfonso Soriano blasted last season, and of the 14 players who reached the 30-home run mark, none registered more than the 18 stolen bases he did. So why did Soriano simply stop hitting an...

  2. What is Tommy La Stella's fantasy value?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners had seemed awfully excited lately about a possible promotion for Atlanta Braves second base prospect Tommy La Stella, and thus there was a palpable buzz on Twitter when this actually occurred Wednesday. La Stella, a patient left-handed...

  3. Mining for stolen bases

    Todd Zola

    Todd Zola is filling in for Eric Karabell, who is on vacation this week. Of the standard rotisserie hitting categories, stolen bases offer by far the greatest element of strategy. Granted, the majority of this is tied into how you draft your team....

  5. Red Sox fantasy notes: Who starts in CF?

    Eric Karabell

    OK, boys and girls, it's time to sit down and listen to a tale from yesteryear. ... Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (well, Cleveland), an outfielder named Grady Sizemore was one of fantasy's most spectacular players, a superstar acros...

  6. Chris Davis fantasy MVP among hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis and his sore right foot got the day off Thursday against Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle, but fantasy owners can't complain about a season's worth of surprising production. Davis, a 15th-round ch...

  7. Bits: Iwakuma fantasy MVP among pitchers

    Eric Karabell

    It's tough to argue against Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer winning the AL Cy Young award. After all, he's the one with the bright and shiny 21-3 record after Wednesday, when he struck out 10 over seven shutout innings against the lowly Minn...

  8. Bits: Ellsbury sidelined with foot injury

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners certainly can't complain about Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's production this season. Ellsbury leads the big leagues in stolen bases with 52, and he's sprinkled in a .299 batting average, eight home runs and 89 runs scored...

  9. Bits: Billy Hamilton makes debut

    Eric Karabell

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton certainly played a key role in his big league debut Tuesday night, scoring the lone run in a victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Of course, Hamilton did not bat in the game, or play the field, but he entere...

  10. All-Star hitter interviews: Kipnis, Zobrist

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals are one of baseball's most successful organizations, in part because they think progressively and try new things. Coaxing more defensive versatility from their hitters is one of the more obvious themes, and certainly the fact ...

  11. Examining June's offensive leaders

    Eric Karabell

    While Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was undoubtedly the most intriguing individual baseball story from June -- I hear they're getting his Hall of Fame plaque prepared this week -- there was actually one player who eclipsed him on the ESP...

  12. Rockies lose Tulo, Beachy set to return

    Eric Karabell

    The seemingly brittle NL West teams just can't seem to catch a break when it comes to key injuries. The Los Angeles Dodgers haven't had their optimal lineup all year, and two outfielders are still out. The San Diego Padres got center fielder Cameron ...

  13. Bits: Cameron Maybin returns with flourish

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome back, Cameron Maybin! Perhaps many of you weren't aware that the San Diego Padres outfielder hadn't played since mid-April with a wrist injury because he had been hitting only .091 after 10 games, but it's true. He returned to the Padres line...

  14. Bits: Daniel Nava remains hot

    Eric Karabell

    The top Boston Red Sox outfielder on the Player Rater is stolen-base maven Jacoby Ellsbury, and I think we have a pretty decent idea who he is. Ellsbury is not really the same hitter who bashed 32 home runs in 2011. He's the guy before that, someone ...

  15. SB projections: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Nobody should be terribly surprised that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is running wild, because this is what he did last season. Cabrera led the National League -- and all middle infielders -- in stolen bases last season, and all of baseb...

  16. Should we be concerned about Sabathia?

    Eric Karabell

    Only 13 starting pitchers are going earlier in ESPN average live drafts than New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia, and it's certainly possible that after Monday's somewhat erratic performance, that figure will, like his waistline (and m...
