  2. 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...

  3. Fantasy impact of position changes

    Eric Karabell

    Most times that I've talked to a baseball player about the potential effects a position change will have -- or is having -- on them at the plate, they've looked at me like I was an alien from outer space. In other words, although these guys are human...

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Monday night, the main knocks that a reasonable person -- or a fantasy analyst -- would make on Cleveland Indians corner infielder Lonnie Chisenhall were a lack of actual home run power and a bloated BABIP of .411. After all, Chisenhall neve...

  8. Bits: Josmil Pinto continues to rake

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps it's a Minnesota thing. Major league catchers are hitting a disappointing .247 this season, with a .703 OPS, but the Minnesota Twins laugh at that number. Their catchers are hitting .305 with a .867 OPS. Three-time batting champion Joe Mauer,...

    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 ...

  12. Bits: Kelly Johnson, Blue Jays hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Two Tampa Bay Rays hitters are featured among the top 10 hitters on ESPN's most added list, but only one of them is intriguing. That's second baseman/outfielder Kelly Johnson, who has fit in well in the team's No. 2 lineup slot while playing mainly l...

    Eric Karabell

    San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is the consensus top guy at his position this season, a point I have no intention of arguing. Posey has proven himself to be a terrific, accomplished hitter -- and healer of injury -- and his performance in t...

  17. 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...
