  1. Pitchers to start at home, but not away

    Eric Karabell

    The excellent and somewhat expected performances by San Diego Padres right-hander Tyson Ross and Miami Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler on Wednesday got me thinking about other hurlers who fantasy owners might rarely think about, but should because h...

  2. How to deal with Bautista, Lawrie injuries

    Eric Karabell

    Injuries are often the great equalizer in the standings for real teams and the fantasy versions, and Sunday's unlucky squad was the Toronto Blue Jays. Several key offensive pieces of the AL East leaders missed the end of the 4-3 loss in Cincinnati an...

  3. Peralta among most unlucky hitters so far

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps no hitter illustrates how wildly unpredictable Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) can be more than St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta. A year ago with the Detroit Tigers, Peralta hit .303 with a .374 BABIP, including a ridicul...

  4. Adrian Beltre the latest star to hit shelf

    Eric Karabell

    A second member of the top 10 in ESPN average live drafts has hit the disabled list, as Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw has company in Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre. However, while Beltre was placed on the DL Sunday, i...

  5. OBP leagues: Studs, sleepers, busts

    Eric Karabell

    The most obvious name that moves up in fantasy formats that count walks or on-base percentage is that of misjudged Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto. Not only did the terrific Votto draw a cool 135 walks last season, but that was 23 more than ...

  6. Papi still highlights oldie-but-goodie list

    Eric Karabell

    I get a kick out of armchair analysts pontificating that someone like St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday "isn't getting any younger." That just makes me laugh. Yes, it's factually correct that Holliday is getting older. Of course, so are Mi...

  7. Bullpen Report: Is Uehara a top-5 closer?

    Eric Karabell

    One could argue that no relief pitcher is playing a larger role in the pennant races these days than Boston Red Sox right-hander Koji Uehara. The Red Sox scored off the great Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning late Thursday night -- his sixth blown s...

  8. Morse undervalued; other injured sluggers

    Eric Karabell

    The Seattle Mariners entered the week third in baseball in home runs, which is incredible considering the player that many predicted to lead the team in the category hasn't hit any since May. The Mariners brought outfielder Michael Morse back from...

  9. Assessing values of Soriano, other Cubs

    Eric Karabell

    While the baseball world awaits a resolution on the annoying Alex Rodriguez situation (like the Ryan Braun saga, it's not likely to end well), the New York Yankees have reportedly been trying to acquire another right-handed bat, one certainly familia...

  10. Second-half rankings reactions: Hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Oh, how things can change in only eight weeks. The last time the ESPN fantasy crew supplied its rest-of-season rankings in mid-May, Atlanta Braves outfielder Justin Upton was a consensus top-10 choice, Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis wasn't ...

  11. Can Marlon Byrd's power surge continue?

    Eric Karabell

    I spent a reserve bench pick on New York Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd in the LABR NL-only auction the first weekend of March, hoping the guy would just make the team. After all, the goal late in a one-league format is often to simply find playing time...

  12. A-Rod back in action; Bailey unhittable

    Eric Karabell

    Baseball's active home run leader participated in his first game of the season Tuesday night for the Charleston (S.C.) RiverDogs, and while Alex Rodriguez still has a way to go before he's actually manning third base for the New York Yankees, hey, it...

  13. Examining June's offensive leaders

    Eric Karabell

    While Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was undoubtedly the most intriguing individual baseball story from June -- I hear they're getting his Hall of Fame plaque prepared this week -- there was actually one player who eclipsed him on the ESP...

  14. AL West midpoint report

    Eric Karabell

    We're nearly halfway through the 2013 baseball season, and we've seen some good, some bad and some Josh Hamilton. This week in the KaraBlog, we'll take a look at each team at the midpoint of the season and discuss what has happened and what should ha...

  15. Bits: Daniel Nava remains hot

    Eric Karabell

    The top Boston Red Sox outfielder on the Player Rater is stolen-base maven Jacoby Ellsbury, and I think we have a pretty decent idea who he is. Ellsbury is not really the same hitter who bashed 32 home runs in 2011. He's the guy before that, someone ...

  16. Franchise Player Draft: Round 2!

    David Schoenfield

    The Franchise Player Draft has been completed, so it's time for Eric Karabell and myself to continue our tradition of doing the second round. All picks were made by Eric and myself, not the franchise "owners," so yell at us, not them. Eric made all t...
