    Eric Karabell

  6. 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...

    Christopher Crawford

    May has finally arrived, and as one scouting director put it when I discussed the draft with him this week, these past few months have been "flat-out weird," and we still have one more month for things to potentially get even weirder. This year has h...

  12. 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...

    Jim Bowden

    As the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals battle it out in the 2013 World Series, no one's thinking past the next game, with perhaps the exception of the two managers as they plan out their pitching and lineups. For the players, it's the here and...
