  1. Previewing 2015 positional eligibility

    Eric Karabell

    As we wind down another fantasy baseball regular season and look ahead to 2015, it seems worthwhile to give an update on eligibility situations that owners might not be aware of. Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz played first base in Pitts...

  2. Red Sox full of fantasy value for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The Rusney Castillo era began for the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, as the 27-year-old Cuban made his big league debut in center field, hitting seventh and delivering an infield single in four at-bats of a 9-1 loss. This was my first look at Castillo, an...

  3. What to do if you own Garrett Richards

    Eric Karabell

    A wonderful Wednesday night of baseball -- both at the big league level and for the teens and tweens in Williamsport, Pennsylvania -- was a bit overshadowed by the knee injury suffered by Los Angeles Angels right-hander Garrett Richards at Fenway Par...

  4. 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...

  5. Red Sox hitters to buy or sell

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth-most owned Boston Red Sox hitter -- and seventh-most owned Sox player -- is Brock Holt. Think about that for a minute. These are the defending World Series champions, a team that scored by far the most runs in baseball in 2013, and Holt --...

  6. Players most impacted by defensive shifts

    Scott Spratt

    With Eric Karabell on a well-deserved vacation this week, we've got a collection of guest bloggers filling in. Jim Bowden batted leadoff Monday, Keith Law had the honors on Tuesday and Wednesday was Tom Lasko's turn. Thursday, we're joined by Scot...

  7. Victor Martinez flashing surprising power

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is quickly becoming one of the more valuable players in fantasy, but my favorite stat on him is this: In an era of ridiculous strikeout totals by hitters, Martinez has actually homered more times than ...

  8. Poll: Best 3-4 combo in the majors

    David Schoenfield

    During today's Power Rankings video chat with Eric Karabell, we mentioned that Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion of the Blue Jays may be the best 3-4 combo in the majors. But are they? Let's put it to a poll. Bautista-Encarnacion, Blue Jays ...

  9. Bonifacio is bona fide for now

    Eric Karabell

    Let's make this clear up front: Chicago Cubs speedster Emilio Bonifacio is not exactly a great baseball player. However, the Cubs have played two games and Bonifacio has nine hits and three stolen bases already. He's the fourth guy in 85 years to sta...

  10. The 'Perfect' Draft: Think balance early

    Eric Karabell

    Between myriad mock drafts, a few random and planned explorations into the mock draft lobby, and a few real ones that will be played out, I'm already well into double digits in ESPN leagues for March alone. While I've felt differing degrees of satisf...

  11. SweetSpot TV: Ranking the DHs

    David Schoenfield

    Eric Karabell and myself discuss the top designated hitters. Considering few teams use a regular DH these days, it's pretty thin once you get pass the ageless David Ortiz. Only five players were regular DHs last year -- Big Papi, Victor Martinez of t...

  12. Papi still highlights oldie-but-goodie list

    Eric Karabell

    I get a kick out of armchair analysts pontificating that someone like St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday "isn't getting any younger." That just makes me laugh. Yes, it's factually correct that Holliday is getting older. Of course, so are Mi...

  13. Position eligibility report entering 2014

    Eric Karabell

    One of the most common mistakes fantasy baseball owners make during drafts is selecting players without actual knowledge of which position(s) they are actually eligible to play. Obviously, this can be a pretty big deal. This also happens when owners ...

  14. Disappointing Sandoval homers thrice

    Eric Karabell

    San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is listed on his player card at 240 pounds, and perhaps that's accurate, but I'm taking the over. Kung Fu Panda, as he is affectionately known, has battled weight issues in the past, and it's likely a...

  15. Bits: Samardzija bests Zimmermann

    Eric Karabell

    It's not terribly uncommon for a pitcher to be among the top 10 in strikeouts and walks in the same season. Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish achieved this distinction last season, Washington Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez was close, and San Franci...

  16. The big picture: What we've learned in '13

    Eric Karabell

    While there have been myriad positive themes during the 2013 major league season, ranging from the greatness of Miguel Cabrera and Matt Harvey to the surprising Yasiel Puig and Chris Davis, the overriding big-picture story has unfortunately dealt wit...
