  2. The value of Holliday, Taveras in 2015

    Eric Karabell

    It's going to be interesting to see how much fantasy owners really want St. Louis Cardinals outfielders Matt Holliday and Oscar Taveras for fantasy purposes next season. The two players will likely handle the corner outfield slots for the perennial N...

  3. Giancarlo Stanton's season done?

    Eric Karabell

    Thursday night was an oddly dark one around the major leagues as several players were hit by pitches and forced to leave games, with the biggest name being potential National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. The excellent Miami Marlins outfielder was st...

  4. What to expect from Michael Wacha

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha never really had a chance to help fantasy owners much in his return to the mound Thursday, but that shouldn't be a problem moving ahead. Wacha tossed 50 pitches in three innings in what ended up being a ...

  5. Fantasy impact of Carlos Gomez injury

    Eric Karabell

    The Milwaukee Brewers and fantasy owners received tough news on the left wrist injury suffered by awesome outfielder Carlos Gomez, one that could keep him out of action the next two weeks, if not more. Fantasy owners wisely love Gomez, who entered Tu...

  6. Don't overrate Wil Myers' current value

    Eric Karabell

    It's difficult to tell if Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers would be owned in roughly half of ESPN's standard leagues, and be one of the most-added players over the past week, had he not won the AL Rookie of the Year award in 2013. It might sound u...

  7. What to do if you own Garrett Richards

    Eric Karabell

    A wonderful Wednesday night of baseball -- both at the big league level and for the teens and tweens in Williamsport, Pennsylvania -- was a bit overshadowed by the knee injury suffered by Los Angeles Angels right-hander Garrett Richards at Fenway Par...

  8. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  9. Remaining value of Darvish, Bailey

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Wednesday, five of the top 20 starting pitchers by ESPN average draft position this season -- a quarter of them! -- had that annoying asterisk next to their name denoting their place on the disabled list, and as we found out earlier this wee...

  10. Masterson's new value as a Cardinal

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals acquired right-hander Justin Masterson from the Cleveland Indians for minor league outfielder James Ramsey Wednesday, a day before Thursday's trading deadline. Although I've never been a big Masterson fan, he really could impr...

  11. Future value of Final Vote candidates

    Eric Karabell

    Final fan voting ends Thursday afternoon, as MLB will announce the last player -- at least for now, before replacements -- for each squad in the All-Star Game. In theory, there's nothing wrong with this idea of choosing one last performer for the gam...

  12. Will Jason Kipnis turn his season around?

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth middle infielder chosen in ESPN average live drafts entered Tuesday as the No. 43 middle infielder on the Player Rater. Yes, Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has certainly been a disappointment, perhaps a bit overrated as well...

  13. 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...

  14. What to do with struggling James Shields

    Eric Karabell

    Kansas City Royals right-hander James Shields is putting his fantasy owners in quite a spot, as Tuesday evening was the sixth time in eight outings the top-20 starting pitcher from draft day and long-time reliable had permitted four or more runs in g...

  15. Harper a top-10 OF for the rest of 2014

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list to face the Colorado Rockies on Monday, and figures to be in the lineup in left field, hitting anywhere from ... well, why bother to guess? Rookie manage...

  16. Who's on pace for 20/20 seasons?

    Eric Karabell

    It's not easy as it used to be to finish a baseball season with more than 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Nine players achieved the feat last season, 10 the year before and 12 in 2011. Basically, the trend of five-category fantasy options continues...

  17. Surprising end-of-season predictions

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to Friday the 13th, the only one of this entire calendar year, and one can be sure if there's an impactful baseball injury on this day many a fantasy owner will blame it on bad luck because of the number 13. Without getting into how ridiculou...
