  2. Buy low, sell high: All-Star Game edition

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- The 85th All-Star Game has come and gone, and while it was clearly a night to honor and celebrate New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter in his final midseason classic, on occasion we certainly see eager fantasy owners assign altered v...

  3. 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...

  4. Injured Beltran among active WAR leaders

    Eric Karabell

    More than half of the top 15 for wins above replacement (WAR) among active players entering this season have been New York Yankees at some point. Perhaps this isn't surprising, but with the news Thursday that Carlos Beltran was placed on the disabled...

  5. Wieters' elbow injury a major concern

    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 ...

  6. May a defining month for Domonic Brown

    Eric Karabell

    Last May three hitters slugged their way to double-digit home runs, and two of them were MVP candidates Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers and Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles. The other was Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown, whose...

  7. Nick Castellanos nearing eligibility at 3B

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos isn't quite a third baseman in ESPN standard fantasy formats yet, but it should happen soon. For those who keep wondering about the ESPN rules of eligibility, it takes 10 games in-season to add it, 20 fro...

  8. Yordano Ventura electric in season debut

    Eric Karabell

    In a fantasy baseball world that unfortunately gets cluttered with so many injuries -- and there were more significant ones Tuesday -- it's always nice to see a young pitcher with nasty stuff make us smile. It reminds us why baseball is so awesome an...

  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. 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...

  11. Chris Davis fantasy MVP among hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis and his sore right foot got the day off Thursday against Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle, but fantasy owners can't complain about a season's worth of surprising production. Davis, a 15th-round ch...

  12. Bits: Cubs' Murphy continues to surprise

    Eric Karabell

    Five players enter Friday having hit eight home runs in August. Chances are, even the most casual baseball fans are well aware of four of them: Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, Atlanta Braves o...

  13. Bits: Sorting out the Red Sox infield

    Eric Karabell

    For a 20-year-old who might not make an impact for the Boston Red Sox or fantasy owners until next season, Xander Bogaerts seems to be an awfully popular guy in AL-only and other deep formats. Not only do fantasy owners desperately want to know when ...

  14. Tigers' Torii Hunter caps off torrid July

    Eric Karabell

    Let's hear it for the old guys! Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter hit his 11th home run Wednesday and doubled twice in a rout of the Washington Nationals, raising his batting average to .316. Hunter, 38, completed a stellar July in which he hit ...

  15. Bits: Marlins sport new-look lineup

    Eric Karabell

    Things haven't been going so well for the Miami Marlins lately, a fact underscored by the team literally not scoring a run in Milwaukee this past weekend, but perhaps all it takes is a few top prospects to change fortunes. On Tuesday, the Marlins not...

  16. Potential fantasy impact of Biogenesis

    Eric Karabell

    It's a shame that the Biogenesis scandal will remain in the news this week, next week and probably for many weeks, overshadowing the games we've missed. The games mercifully return Friday night, but we'll still be hearing and reading about several of...

  17. Bits: Ike Davis sent down to Triple-A

    Eric Karabell

    Enough was mercifully enough for the New York Mets and their once-slugging first baseman Ike Davis on Sunday, as yet another hitless performance prompted the organization to finally demote to Triple-A Las Vegas a guy who blasted 32 home runs last sea...
