  1. Bits: Josmil Pinto continues to rake

    Eric Karabell

    Eric Karabell

    Name value can be a dangerous thing in fantasy baseball; it often drives owners to trust a player longer than they should. Washington Nationals right-hander Dan Haren, for example, used to be a top-10 fantasy pitcher, an excellent innings-eater who d...

  3. Need strikeouts? Try out these pitchers

    Eric Karabell

    With strikeout rates across the big leagues rising to historic levels, it's relatively easy to find pitchers who pile on this statistic. Then again, the bar for competing in this category has been raised as well. It's tougher to get away with a low-s...

    Eric Karabell

    Every fantasy baseball owner who fails to win his or her league can point to a player or two they feel doomed their chances. We've all done it. What's interesting is the disparity of those players. To some owners, choosing Matt Kemp third o...

    Eric Karabell

  11. Don't get too excited over Ubaldo

    Eric Karabell

    Ubaldo Jimenez is owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, and while I'm not his biggest fan from a statistical standpoint, I can't really quarrel with his ownership. Jimenez was a likely regression candidate from 2010, and he's ...
