  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. What to do if you own Josh Hamilton

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia certainly raised eyebrows this past weekend when he said outfielder Josh Hamilton, now in his second season with the club, is not the same player he was previously with the Texas Rangers. Perhaps it's a motiva...

  3. What to do with struggling James Shields

    Eric Karabell

    Kansas City Royals right-hander James Shields is putting his fantasy owners in quite a spot, as Tuesday evening was the sixth time in eight outings the top-20 starting pitcher from draft day and long-time reliable had permitted four or more runs in g...

  4. Fantasy impact of position changes

    Eric Karabell

    Most times that I've talked to a baseball player about the potential effects a position change will have -- or is having -- on them at the plate, they've looked at me like I was an alien from outer space. In other words, although these guys are human...

  5. Fantasy value of former No. 1 overall picks

    Eric Karabell

    High school pitcher Brady Aiken was the lucky first overall selection in the MLB 2014 Rule 4 draft Thursday night, and if history is our guide, there's a pretty good chance he'll end up in the major leagues someday, but no guarantees of success. Aike...

  6. Bits: Josmil Pinto continues to rake

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps it's a Minnesota thing. Major league catchers are hitting a disappointing .247 this season, with a .703 OPS, but the Minnesota Twins laugh at that number. Their catchers are hitting .305 with a .867 OPS. Three-time batting champion Joe Mauer,...

  7. Mauer placed on DL: Five fill-in options

    Eric Karabell

    Anytime a player gets that little asterisk signifying a disabled list stint next to his name this late in the season, fantasy owners must consider the risks versus the rewards of keeping the player or looking elsewhere. With awesome Minnesota Twins c...

  8. Billy Butler frustrating fantasy owners

    Eric Karabell

    Kansas City Royals first baseman/designated hitter Billy Butler remains 100 percent owned in ESPN standard leagues, but, judging by my Twitter feed, patience is apparently running thin. Butler might have quieted the critics with Wednesday's three-hit...

  10. 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...

  12. My ranks for 2013: Nos. 11-20

    Eric Karabell

    Some believe I've gone a bit overboard in selecting Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout as my top player for the 2013 season. Granted, Trout was awesome in 2012, and I concur that some regression is pending, but he delivered numbers we&#039...

  14. Upton's power, speed will play in Atlanta

    Eric Karabell

    New Atlanta Braves outfielder B.J. Upton finished the 2012 season as the No. 14 outfielder on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater, but I'm guessing most people wouldn't even think of selecting him among the top 14 outfielders in a draft. After al...
