  9. 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...

  13. Don't dismiss Adam Dunn, Dan Uggla

    Eric Karabell

    Relying on batting average drains such as Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam Dunn and Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla can be painful for any fantasy owner, but when they're hitting for power -- like they were Monday night -- they can still ...

  14. Bits: Is Alex Cobb the real deal?

    Eric Karabell

    Not all strikeout rates translate from the minor leagues to the majors, but in the case of Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb, who was successful in 2012 but hardly outstanding, it seemed like the best was still yet to come. It's why I paid p...
