  1. 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...

  2. 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...

    AJ Mass

  4. Results differ as Hamilton, Trout return

    Eric Karabell

    A pair of Los Angeles Angels outfielders returned from injury to the lineup Tuesday in Houston, but only one of them lasted the entire game, and it's not the one who was selected first -- or second, in theory, I suppose -- in nearly every fantasy dra...

    Jason Rosenberg

    A very happy Friday to all of you. What we learned this week: Johnny Cueto and Masahiro Tanaka aren't slowing down anytime soon, each with domiminating CGSOs; we can't have nice things as we lose Jose Fernandez to TJS, although Aroldis Chapman return...

  8. Peralta among most unlucky hitters so far

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps no hitter illustrates how wildly unpredictable Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) can be more than St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta. A year ago with the Detroit Tigers, Peralta hit .303 with a .374 BABIP, including a ridicul...

    Richard Durrett
