  11. Bits: Nationals continue to tear it up

    Eric Karabell

  15. Pitchers overowned due to name value

    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...

    Eric Karabell

    While Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper made news Monday by coming off the disabled list and -- naturally -- smacking an opposite-field home run in his very first at-bat, fellow outfielder Jayson Werth was the one who finished with an eye-...
