  1. Colts' awful run defense will be fantasy's gain

    Eric Karabell

    Sometimes when evaluating players, no matter the sport, praise becomes faint because of the circumstances. Sure, Tim Lincecum pitched well, but he was facing the Padres. LeBron James dropped 50 points on someone, but it was on the Knicks, so big deal...

  3. Peavy's value drops in Chicago, healthy or not

    Eric Karabell

    It's not normal practice for players on the disabled list to get traded, but the San Diego Padres were apparently desperate to move Jake Peavy and his large salary, and the Chicago White Sox were more than pleased to complete a deal that nearly ...

  4. Karabell: Maddux's value doesn't change

    Eric Karabell

    Deadline? What deadline? I'm not sure why Greg Maddux wasn't traded from the Padres to the Dodgers before July 31, when everyone was prepared for it, but now that Brad Penny is done for the season, it appears the move was finally made a few...

  5. Being cautious, opportunistic with Headley

    Eric Karabell

    I'm a big window-of-opportunity fantasy player, so while we've all waited for months for the Padres to promote Chase Headley to the big club, and he's finally here, that doesn't mean you can't trade him before he plays. I hav...

  6. Bad teams hurt fantasy players

    Eric Karabell

    I can't figure out the Tigers. I know I've said and written this before, but Jim Leyland's reaction to a floundering two months of the season has been to make some very interesting moves. Let's platoon our ace/fifth starters! Leav...

  7. Man, the AL stinks for fantasy

    Eric Karabell

    The KaraBlog is back! And a lot has changed since the last time I wrote in this space. For instance ... Albert Pujols single-handedly put a few Padres on the DL ... the Dodgers and Reds called up potential rookie of the year candidates ... the two Fl...

  8. Only one home run, but zero worries

    Eric Karabell

    Power isn't everything in fantasy baseball, but I can't say I've ever seen a team punt the power categories and win. If you know me at all or have ever read my work, you know how I feel about punting a category. It's the complete ...

  9. Longoria up, but Fields, Headley still wait

    Eric Karabell

    One third base prospect came up this past weekend, batted sixth in his debut and the fantasy world is all crazy about his Rookie of the Year potential. I agree that Evan Longoria is going to be a solid player, without delay, and should be owned in mo...

  10. It's 'Crystal' clear old players help fantasy

    Eric Karabell

    I say good for Billy Crystal! I'm glad he's going to play in an exhibition game for the Yankees on Thursday, and really, a lot of good things can come from this. It's a terrific birthday gift a day before he hits 60, reward for the und...

  11. Checking out Gagne, 2008 closers

    Eric Karabell

    Good for Eric Gagne, I say, in convincing a major league baseball team that he's worth $10 million for a season, but I'm not going to fall for this in fantasy. I don't care how well Gagne throws in March, I'm not buying. He can&#0...

  12. One more game ... for some of you

    Eric Karabell

    For those in fantasy baseball roto leagues who think you won, hold off another day. For those in head-to-head leagues who think they still have a shot, you can forget it. I'll explain. The season did not end Sunday in ESPN fantasy baseball roto...
