  4. Top surprises, disappointments thus far

    Eric Karabell

    Surprise! We're finishing up the second full month of the fantasy baseball season and yes, it seems to have flown by. The overriding theme of the campaign has been the ulnar collateral ligament -- whose is torn and whose is not -- but there have been...

  5. 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...

  9. Bullpen Report: Axford struggling again

    Eric Karabell

    Those non-save situations for closers can be so frustrating. Real-life managers might not give a second thought when a reliever who is "just getting work" gives up a run or two -- in the case of Milwaukee Brewers right-hander John Axford on Wednesday...

    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...
