  1. Add Yadier Molina now

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals had to be hoping that when superb catcher Yadier Molina was lost for a few months with a thumb injury, they could merely remain within striking distance of the NL Central lead. Mission accomplished there. The Cardinals are NL ...

  2. Fantasy value of Pirates lineup

    Eric Karabell

    The Pittsburgh Pirates enter Tuesday having lost six games in a row, but don't worry, center fielder Andrew McCutchen is scheduled to return to save the day! The defending NL MVP has apparently recovered from his rib injury and Tuesday is the first d...

  3. Ten players who could soon help in saves

    Eric Karabell

    In the past week we've seen one established closer moved from the NL to the AL where he gets to continue closing (Huston Street), while on Wednesday another ninth-inning option stayed in the AL but saves don't appear to be close to his immediate futu...

  4. Talking baseball with NL All-Stars

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- What a week it's been for Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier! What a season, really. Let's just say few would have guessed that if the Reds were going to have an offensive breakout performer this season, that Frazier, who enter...

  5. What to do with Joey Votto

    Eric Karabell

    The Cincinnati Reds lost another close game Wednesday, as San Francisco Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong -- not exactly Roger Clemens -- registered a career-best nine strikeouts in a 3-2 win, and they're now closer to last place in the NL Central t...

  6. Bullpen Report: AL saves projections

    Eric Karabell

    There was some general upheaval when it came to various big-name National League closers and my saves projections for this season. But my saves predicting is not complete. Here are my American League projections: Baltimore Orioles: Right-hander To...

  7. Bullpen Report: NL saves projections

    Eric Karabell

    Whether you're the type of owner who targets high-end, dominant relief pitchers such as Craig Kimbrel early in drafts or adopts the adage to avoid paying for saves, the fact is we spend a lot of time talking about closers, predicting who's next in li...

  8. 2014 NL-only LABR auction recap

    Eric Karabell

    Each fantasy baseball auction is different, and if you're anything like me, when an auction ends, I feel like I spend more time regretting not spending the extra dollar(s) for certain players rather than celebrating the fine individuals who compose w...

  10. Spring storylines: National League

    Eric Karabell

    The lineups can get a little crazy, and the top hitters generally leave after a few at-bats. Players with futures not likely to include fantasy stardom tend to produce big numbers. The starting pitchers get an inning or two as they cautiously get str...

  11. Bits: Kemp, Ramirez, Marte return

    Eric Karabell

    Several National League playoff teams welcomed back key offensive players to the lineup Tuesday, and fantasy owners certainly needed to pay attention. Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp (hamstring) went 4-for-4 in his first start since July, wi...

  12. Bits: Nationals continue to tear it up

    Eric Karabell

    The hottest team in the National League, much to the chagrin of the suddenly vulnerable Cincinnati Reds, is the Washington Nationals. The Nats have won eight of 10 games and 19 of 25, and among the key hitters in the surge to contention have been thi...

  13. Liriano fires another gem; Taveras out

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher in baseball, someone I'd be comfortable handing the NL Cy Young and MVP awards to this season, but the most surprising pitcher in baseball also has amazing numbers: One outing after being ...

  14. Can Marlon Byrd's power surge continue?

    Eric Karabell

    I spent a reserve bench pick on New York Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd in the LABR NL-only auction the first weekend of March, hoping the guy would just make the team. After all, the goal late in a one-league format is often to simply find playing time...
