  1. Midseason rankings reactions

    Eric Karabell

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could all redraft our fantasy baseball teams today, knowing what we know now? Perhaps the first-place teams would stick with what they've got, but then again, some of those ladies and gents might have used a first-round pick...

  2. How to deal with injuries to Molina, Phillips

    Eric Karabell

    Earlier this week, the popular injury for preseason top-five first basemen Edwin Encarnacion and Joey Votto was the quad. On Thursday fantasy owners got a few more jolts of bad news with thumb ligament injuries to St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier M...

  3. Bits: Nelson Cruz quietly producing

    Eric Karabell

    Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz fell to the 13th round, on average, in ESPN live drafts prior to this season, which seemed a bit strange, but it made him a nice bargain. Sure, there's outfield depth this season and Cruz has had trouble staying o...

  4. Kluber stays strong, Strasburg returns

    Eric Karabell

    Both pitchers in Sunday's 2-0 Cleveland Indians win over the Washington Nationals are being judged unfairly these days. The relatively unknown Tribe right-hander, Corey Kluber, spoiled the return of Stephen Strasburg from his disabled list stint by h...

  5. Don't go overboard for Yasiel Puig

    Eric Karabell

  6. Bits: Domonic Brown keeps slugging

    Eric Karabell

    A week ago, Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown was really just a guy hitting for modest power, doing little else to notably ingratiate himself to fantasy owners. He was owned in roughly half of ESPN's standard mixed leagues, and got some ...

  7. Bits: Kinsler placed on DL, Profar gets call

    Eric Karabell

    The many fantasy owners and Texas Rangers fans who have been waiting all season for the promotion of super-prospect Jurickson Profar finally got their wish Sunday night: He got the call when Ian Kinsler was placed on the DL. But it's premature to ass...

  8. Moreland no longer Rangers' 'weak link'

    Eric Karabell

    A month ago, the focus on Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland was on how he was the weak link in a strong lineup and should be replaced in the lineup by hotshot prospect Jurickson Profar. Ian Kinsler would slide from second base to first base ...

  9. Big Papi tops oldie-but-goodie hitters list

    Eric Karabell

  11. Top 100 for 2013: Mike Trout No. 1

    Eric Karabell

    As the saying goes, fantasy drafts aren't necessarily won in the first round -- or early rounds, for that matter -- but they can be lost. I don't buy that notion anymore. All the picks count, and team depth is critical, but many owners who...

  13. Top bounce-back options for 2013

    Eric Karabell

    One of the annual components of my fantasy baseball draft preparation for any league is to take a look not just at current results from average live drafts but at what occurred in drafts a year ago. Fantasy owners are a reactive bunch, regardless of ...
