  1. My top 20 players for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann ended his 2014 regular season on a significant high note by no-hitting the Miami Marlins Sunday, but it's still not enough to get him into my overall top 20 for next season. This theme has resonated...

  2. My 2014 fantasy baseball MVPs

    Eric Karabell

    When I spoke to Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley at the All-Star festivities in Minneapolis and asked him about his shocking statistical season, he made it seem like it was no big deal at all -- just a maturing player becoming smarter wi...

  3. Yankees hitters to buy and sell

    Eric Karabell

    A mere five players hit more than the 34 home runs outfielder Alfonso Soriano blasted last season, and of the 14 players who reached the 30-home run mark, none registered more than the 18 stolen bases he did. So why did Soriano simply stop hitting an...

  4. What is Tommy La Stella's fantasy value?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners had seemed awfully excited lately about a possible promotion for Atlanta Braves second base prospect Tommy La Stella, and thus there was a palpable buzz on Twitter when this actually occurred Wednesday. La Stella, a patient left-handed...

  5. Injured Beltran among active WAR leaders

    Eric Karabell

    More than half of the top 15 for wins above replacement (WAR) among active players entering this season have been New York Yankees at some point. Perhaps this isn't surprising, but with the news Thursday that Carlos Beltran was placed on the disabled...

  6. Middlebrooks, Teixeira land on DL

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into the weekend both Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks and New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira were owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, each having been selected in the range of the 17th round in ESPN live dr...

  8. Bits: Butler continues tear; Jeter returns

    Eric Karabell

    It's possible that no matter how Kansas City Royals designated hitter and occasional first baseman Billy Butler performs the rest of this somewhat disappointing season, most fantasy owners will be avoiding him in the first 10 rounds of 2014 drafts. A...

  9. Monday Bits: Examining Rangers' bullpen

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to the final few days of July. On Wednesday, the last day of the month, there likely will be trades that affect both real baseball and the fantasy version. Some of the players moved will be big names, some will be minor leaguers, and in some ...

  10. Bits: CC rocked, but don't give up on him

    Eric Karabell

    After New York Yankees lefty CC Sabathia's struggles against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night, it might seem obvious for me to suggest you (finally) run away and give up on any hopes that he'll be anything resembling the top-20 starting pitcher we ...

  11. Is Derek Jeter worth adding right away?

    Eric Karabell

    The New York Yankees will welcome back future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter to their lineup Thursday afternoon, and not a moment too soon. No offense to Jayson Nix and pals, but Yankees shortstops weren't helping the team much offensively, featuring a lo...

  12. Granderson's return alters Yankees' lineup

    Eric Karabell

    What interests me most about the return of New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson to the lineup is not, oddly enough, the two-time 40-home run, 100-RBI player himself. Granderson is going to play regularly. He's going to hit home runs and stri...

  14. Vernon Wells tearing it up, but will it last?

    Eric Karabell

    Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees got clubbed at home by the Houston Astros 9-1 Monday night, a reminder for many that spot-starting in fantasy even against the league's worst offenses can occasionally backfire (ask Brandon Maurer about fac...

  16. Young could be cheap source of steals

    Eric Karabell

    Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton hit the disabled list Thursday with a wrist injury, and while this is no longer a big deal in fantasy because he's not productive and is owned in less than 1 percent of ESPN standard mixed leagues, I&#0...
