  1. Add Billy Burns right now

    Eric Karabell

    The best team in baseball promoted one of the best base stealers in the minor leagues Monday, and I, for one, couldn't be more pleased! I remember watching the ridiculously speedy Billy Burns back in March while at spring training in Arizona, and ins...

  2. Mining for stolen bases

    Todd Zola

    Todd Zola is filling in for Eric Karabell, who is on vacation this week. Of the standard rotisserie hitting categories, stolen bases offer by far the greatest element of strategy. Granted, the majority of this is tied into how you draft your team....

  3. Is Adam Jones poised for a big May?

    Eric Karabell

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones entered Wednesday's game hitting .252 with one home run in five weeks, this after consecutive 30-plus homer campaigns plus enough stolen bases to matter earned him second-round status in ESPN leagues. Naturally...

  5. Colabello a shrewd daily league pickup

    Eric Karabell

    The story of Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello is actually kind of interesting, one I followed during the past year due to my investment in one of my deep teams. The Massachusetts native played for most of his 20s in the indepe...

  6. Sleeper stolen base options for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    One of my favorite players to watch while seeing spring games in Arizona last week was Oakland Athletics outfielder Billy Burns, because pretty much every time the guy got on base -- and he was on base quite a bit -- he tried to steal second. And at ...

  7. 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...

  8. 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. SB projections: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Nobody should be terribly surprised that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is running wild, because this is what he did last season. Cabrera led the National League -- and all middle infielders -- in stolen bases last season, and all of baseb...

  12. Roy Halladay's ownership set to plummet

    Eric Karabell

    Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay began Sunday owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, but that number is going to drop precipitously in the coming days. Halladay owners trusted him Sunday against the awful Miami Marlins, despite...

  13. What to do with slumping Jays options?

    Eric Karabell

    There is certainly no shortage of disappointing Toronto Blue Jays players, as the team enters the first full week of May in last place in the American League East and with a mere 11 victories in 32 games. The lone team with a worse run differential i...

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Wednesday, the No. 3 option on the Player Rater was none other than Oakland Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp, the same fellow who has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. This creates quite the trouble for f...
