    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps Houston Astros outfielder Chris Carter will never win a batting title -- hey, crazy things do happen in this sport -- but let's give this low-average hitter plenty of credit for the fine season he's having. Carter smacked two more home runs T...

  6. OBP leagues: Studs, sleepers, busts

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche is a steal of a 15th-round choice in ESPN average live drafts, but he started the season hitless in 13 at-bats, then missed a few games because of back stiffness, and that apparently was enough for a ha...
