  1. My top 20 players for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann ended his 2014 regular season on a significant high note by no-hitting the Miami Marlins Sunday, but it's still not enough to get him into my overall top 20 for next season. This theme has resonated...

  2. My 2014 fantasy baseball MVPs

    Eric Karabell

    When I spoke to Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley at the All-Star festivities in Minneapolis and asked him about his shocking statistical season, he made it seem like it was no big deal at all -- just a maturing player becoming smarter wi...

  3. What to do if you own Josh Hamilton

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia certainly raised eyebrows this past weekend when he said outfielder Josh Hamilton, now in his second season with the club, is not the same player he was previously with the Texas Rangers. Perhaps it's a motiva...

  4. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. Talkin' keepers: Hitters to stash for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    August is a time when a large portion of the fantasy sports-playing world collectively turns its attention to football, leaving behind average or poor fantasy baseball teams in the process. Of course this isn't ideal, and it affects even the contendi...

  8. Yoenis Cespedes showing signs of life

    Eric Karabell

    It's been two weeks since Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes delivered an impressive, winning show at the Home Run Derby at Citi Field, and finally he's hit a blast in a game that counts. More are forthcoming. Is it a Derby jinx or just one...

    Eric Karabell

    So many eyes in the real and fantasy baseball world were on young Baltimore Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman Thursday night as he made his much-awaited big league debut in Canada against the Toronto Blue Jays. Gausman, the team's No. 2 preseason pi...

  12. Sleeper steals options: American League

    Eric Karabell

    The big-league leader in stolen bases last season was Mike Trout with 49, which was basically six weeks for Billy Hamilton. I was at the Futures Game in Kansas City, Mo., last summer, and in the clubhouse prior to the game, Hamilton was being mobbed ...

  14. 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...
