  2. Can Lester repeat 2014 stats with Cubs?

    Eric Karabell

    For all the success new Chicago Cubs left-hander Jon Lester has achieved in his major league career, he's generally been a bit -- brace yourself, because nobody ever wants to hear or read this word -- overrated from a fantasy aspect, because we deal ...

  3. Early 2015 top 10 pitcher rankings

    Eric Karabell

    I think we all enjoy baseball nights when aces are in action, even though I rarely own aces in the first place. Perhaps that's why I enjoy it, to some degree, not really worrying from pitch to pitch about my teams but just reveling in the glory of a ...

  4. Juan Lagares running wild

    Eric Karabell

    New York Mets outfielder Juan Lagares entered this season known mainly for his elite glove work as opposed to anything he has shown at the plate, but so far his September play has been extremely valuable for fantasy owners looking for an edge in stol...

  6. Players to get before trade deadline

    Eric Karabell

    Baseball's non-waiver trade deadline is Thursday afternoon -- I mean, nobody's been talking about this for the past month, right? -- and while we can't possibly know for sure which players will actually be sent to new teams, I have a few hunches the ...

    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...

    Eric Karabell

    The No. 2 catcher on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater started at designated hitter for the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, hitting a pair of singles in five at-bats and raising his batting average to an impressive .341. Then again, nobody knows when Matt ...

  9. The 'Perfect' Draft: Think balance early

    Eric Karabell

    Between myriad mock drafts, a few random and planned explorations into the mock draft lobby, and a few real ones that will be played out, I'm already well into double digits in ESPN leagues for March alone. While I've felt differing degrees of satisf...

  10. Fernandez wraps up impressive season

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners really could not have asked for much more of Miami Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez this year. The Cuban import surprisingly made the Marlins out of spring training at age 20, became a popular fantasy free-agent pickup immediately, ...

  12. Second-half rankings reactions: Pitchers

    Eric Karabell

    It didn't take my Twitter followers long to realize that I had ranked pitchers in the ESPN Fantasy midseason rankings a bit lower than my colleagues. Yes, that's by design. My list of those making their living throwing the baseball started with Los A...

  13. What's wrong with Justin Verlander?

    Eric Karabell

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios did something noteworthy Tuesday night, tallying six hits in as many at-bats, while adding a pair of stolen bases and an RBI. The oft-overlooked Rios is rightly owned in all leagues, and good for him; he's provi...

  14. Projecting SP wins: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Unlike home runs and stolen bases and most offensive statistics, for that matter, pitcher wins are not a good gauge of a player's true ability. They just aren't. We could compare myriad sets of pitchers in this space with similar statistics in ERA, W...

  15. Top 100 for 2013: Mike Trout No. 1

    Eric Karabell

    As the saying goes, fantasy drafts aren't necessarily won in the first round -- or early rounds, for that matter -- but they can be lost. I don't buy that notion anymore. All the picks count, and team depth is critical, but many owners who...
