  2. Yankees hitters to buy and sell

    Eric Karabell

    A mere five players hit more than the 34 home runs outfielder Alfonso Soriano blasted last season, and of the 14 players who reached the 30-home run mark, none registered more than the 18 stolen bases he did. So why did Soriano simply stop hitting an...

  4. Top surprises, disappointments thus far

    Eric Karabell

    Surprise! We're finishing up the second full month of the fantasy baseball season and yes, it seems to have flown by. The overriding theme of the campaign has been the ulnar collateral ligament -- whose is torn and whose is not -- but there have been...

  5. Victor Martinez flashing surprising power

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is quickly becoming one of the more valuable players in fantasy, but my favorite stat on him is this: In an era of ridiculous strikeout totals by hitters, Martinez has actually homered more times than ...

  7. OBP leagues: Studs, sleepers, busts

    Eric Karabell

    The most obvious name that moves up in fantasy formats that count walks or on-base percentage is that of misjudged Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto. Not only did the terrific Votto draw a cool 135 walks last season, but that was 23 more than ...

  8. Spring storylines: National League

    Eric Karabell

    The lineups can get a little crazy, and the top hitters generally leave after a few at-bats. Players with futures not likely to include fantasy stardom tend to produce big numbers. The starting pitchers get an inning or two as they cautiously get str...

    Eric Karabell

    The 2014 fantasy baseball season has finally arrived! Oh sure, the games aren't starting quite yet, and while it always seems exciting when pitchers and catchers report to spring training, the truth is we're not reporting and the numbers don't count,...

    Eric Karabell

    The San Diego Padres organization as a whole had a pretty decent Wednesday, as third baseman Chase Headley came off the disabled list after recovering from a small fracture in his left thumb, and the team blasted three home runs off the usually invin...

  14. Injured stars could be fantasy bargains

    Eric Karabell

    When it comes to dealing with injured players in fantasy drafts, it's safe to assume no two situations are exactly the same. Even with New York Yankees sluggers Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson expected to miss roughly the same amount of time...
