  2. Bullpen Report: Late-spring update

    Eric Karabell

    By now you're probably aware that veteran right-hander Ryan Madson would make for a poor pick in 2012 fantasy drafts. The man who was signed to what seemed to be a steal of a one-year deal to close for the Cincinnati Reds tore an elbow ligament ...

    Eric Karabell

    Michael Pineda helped carry many owners to fantasy titles last season, including yours truly, but the minute he was traded from the Seattle Mariners to the New York Yankees, I was off the proverbial bandwagon. Everything changed with that deal. The m...

  6. Bold predictions for 2012: pitchers version

    Eric Karabell

    Being bold is fun! Yeah, yeah, we all know that sometimes going out on a speculative limb can backfire and look silly, but a month or so ago I laid out my bold fantasy predictions for hitters for each team in 2012, and it seemed to go over well, so h...

  8. Why no love for R.A. Dickey, Mets staff?

    Eric Karabell

    As a fantasy owner, knuckleball pitchers scare me, and apparently that's the case for many other fantasy owners as well, because New York Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey is owned in a mere 4.7 percent of ESPN standard (10-team) leagues despite bei...

  10. NL closers: Will Heath Bell be traded?

    Eric Karabell

    This season there has been just as much turnover among major league closers as we're all used to. Of course, it's still only mid-July and a lot more can still change, but by my count, 22 closers from the ESPN preseason rankings remain in th...

  12. Closers: Is Craig Kimbrel a future closer?

    Eric Karabell

    I picked up Atlanta Braves reliever Craig Kimbrel in a deep keeper league last week, not because I thought the 22-year-old could help me win this season -- the team I added him to is out of it -- but because he's likely to vault into a closer ro...

    Eric Karabell

  16. Closer report: Marmol still getting it done

    Eric Karabell

    Ever so briefly, I felt bad for Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Ted Lilly on Sunday night. He took a no-hitter into the ninth inning against the Chicago White Sox, gave up a Juan Pierre single and then left the game and to sweat out a Carlos Marmol mag...
