  1. Is Josh Hamilton worth waiting for?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners will be tempted to cut Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton now that he's on the shelf for at least six weeks, and perhaps more than two months, with a thumb injury, but I think that's a mistake. Sure, I can't possibly know how ...

  3. Yordano Ventura electric in season debut

    Eric Karabell

    In a fantasy baseball world that unfortunately gets cluttered with so many injuries -- and there were more significant ones Tuesday -- it's always nice to see a young pitcher with nasty stuff make us smile. It reminds us why baseball is so awesome an...

  4. Don't overreact to Matt Moore's injury

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore is not hurt as badly as it originally looked when he left his Monday outing in the fifth inning, but generally when a pitcher leaves a start in the worrisome fashion he did, clutching...

  5. Closer Report: Papelbon's woes

    Eric Karabell

    Honestly, if closers keep pitching the way they have so far this season, we're going to need to devote a daily column to it. On Monday, those fellows were a mess. On Tuesday, it was a bit quieter. On Wednesday, an incredible six closers blew saves, s...

  6. Camp Tour: LA's Calhoun ready to shine

    Eric Karabell

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- Six players received more than 25 at-bats out of the leadoff role for the Los Angeles Angels last season, including J.B. Shuck, Erick Aybar and the splendid Mike Trout. Then there was Kole Calhoun, a lefty-swinging outfielder who hit ...

  8. Bits: Iwakuma fantasy MVP among pitchers

    Eric Karabell

    It's tough to argue against Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer winning the AL Cy Young award. After all, he's the one with the bright and shiny 21-3 record after Wednesday, when he struck out 10 over seven shutout innings against the lowly Minn...

  9. Bits: A tribute to Helton, Pettitte, Rivera

    Eric Karabell

    As the 2013 baseball season enters its final week, it seems an appropriate time to pay tribute to the once-productive players that occasionally carried fantasy teams but have already announced their intention to retire. On Sunday, Colorado Rockies fi...

  10. 2014 values of two Hamiltons, Bits

    Eric Karabell

    Take out a $10 bill and celebrate because Wednesday night was one for the Hamiltons. Josh Hamilton, a polarizing figure in baseball with a monster contract and less-than-stellar numbers in his first year with the non-contending Los Angeles Angels, sm...

  11. Bits: Andrew Cashner's 2014 value

    Eric Karabell

    Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo has 22 home runs and 75 RBIs this season, and is owned in more than 92 percent of ESPN standard leagues. Rizzo is seen as one of the building blocks of the young Cubs, a middle-of-the-order presence for years ...

  12. Bits: Nationals continue to tear it up

    Eric Karabell

    The hottest team in the National League, much to the chagrin of the suddenly vulnerable Cincinnati Reds, is the Washington Nationals. The Nats have won eight of 10 games and 19 of 25, and among the key hitters in the surge to contention have been thi...

  13. Bits: Hunter Pence joins 20-20 club

    Eric Karabell

    Once upon a time back in March, San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence made my list of players I liked more than my colleagues did, and thus was more likely to end up with on my teams. My argument on Pence was simple: He was an established prov...

  14. 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,...

  15. Bits: Ellsbury sidelined with foot injury

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners certainly can't complain about Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's production this season. Ellsbury leads the big leagues in stolen bases with 52, and he's sprinkled in a .299 batting average, eight home runs and 89 runs scored...

  16. Bits: Closer situations surprisingly stable

    Eric Karabell

    The closing situation for the Los Angeles Angels might seem up for reasonable debate, but rest assured that right-hander Ernesto Frieri is the preferred choice for manager Mike Scioscia. Yes, setup man Dane De La Rosa saved Tuesday's victory, but onl...

  17. Bits: Brewers sleepers emerging; Tulo sits

    Eric Karabell

    The Milwaukee Brewers certainly aren't playoff-bound, but it hasn't stopped several of their more unheralded players from becoming interesting in fantasy baseball. Right-hander Marco Estrada dominated the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, allowing one hit o...
