  1. Will Wright, Pedroia ever be top-50 again?

    Eric Karabell

    It seems a bit outrageous now, but a few seasons ago New York Mets third baseman David Wright and Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia were regarded as late first-round picks in fantasy drafts, deliverers of five-category goodness and viewed ...

  2. Don't overspend to target Taveras

    Eric Karabell

    The trade of John Lackey for Allen Craig and Joe Kelly is, on the surface, really good news for St. Louis Cardinals rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras, because it opens up right field for him on a full-time basis. But what if Taveras just isn't ready to...

  3. Fantasy fallout of Lester-Cespedes deal

    Eric Karabell

    Thursday's trade deadline got started with the proverbial bang when the Oakland Athletics acquired lefty Jon Lester from the Boston Red Sox, but parted with slugger Yoenis Cespedes. What? Say that again? It's true, and quite shocking. From a fantasy ...

  4. Red Sox hitters to buy or sell

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth-most owned Boston Red Sox hitter -- and seventh-most owned Sox player -- is Brock Holt. Think about that for a minute. These are the defending World Series champions, a team that scored by far the most runs in baseball in 2013, and Holt --...

  5. Buy or sell on Jake Arrieta?

    Eric Karabell

    Chicago Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta entered Monday at Fenway Park winless in five starts against the Boston Red Sox, with a 5.90 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. This certainly might have led a concerned Arrieta fantasy owner to bench him, citing history, which...

  6. Middlebrooks, Teixeira land on DL

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into the weekend both Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks and New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira were owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, each having been selected in the range of the 17th round in ESPN live dr...

  7. Red Sox fantasy notes: Who starts in CF?

    Eric Karabell

    OK, boys and girls, it's time to sit down and listen to a tale from yesteryear. ... Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (well, Cleveland), an outfielder named Grady Sizemore was one of fantasy's most spectacular players, a superstar acros...

  8. Bits: Ellsbury sidelined with foot injury

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners certainly can't complain about Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's production this season. Ellsbury leads the big leagues in stolen bases with 52, and he's sprinkled in a .299 batting average, eight home runs and 89 runs scored...

  9. Bullpen Report: Is Uehara a top-5 closer?

    Eric Karabell

    One could argue that no relief pitcher is playing a larger role in the pennant races these days than Boston Red Sox right-hander Koji Uehara. The Red Sox scored off the great Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning late Thursday night -- his sixth blown s...

  10. Bits: Sorting out the Red Sox infield

    Eric Karabell

    For a 20-year-old who might not make an impact for the Boston Red Sox or fantasy owners until next season, Xander Bogaerts seems to be an awfully popular guy in AL-only and other deep formats. Not only do fantasy owners desperately want to know when ...

  11. Jake Peavy traded to Boston Red Sox

    Eric Karabell

    The non-waiver trade deadline arrives Wednesday afternoon, but a bunch of American League teams couldn't wait, making moves late Tuesday night. Certainly new Boston Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy is the big name here, as he left the Chicago White So...

  12. Bits: CC rocked, but don't give up on him

    Eric Karabell

    After New York Yankees lefty CC Sabathia's struggles against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night, it might seem obvious for me to suggest you (finally) run away and give up on any hopes that he'll be anything resembling the top-20 starting pitcher we ...

  13. Bits: Daniel Nava remains hot

    Eric Karabell

    The top Boston Red Sox outfielder on the Player Rater is stolen-base maven Jacoby Ellsbury, and I think we have a pretty decent idea who he is. Ellsbury is not really the same hitter who bashed 32 home runs in 2011. He's the guy before that, someone ...

  14. Five things to watch this weekend

    Eric Karabell

    The first-place Cleveland Indians strode into Fenway Park on Thursday night to face the Boston Red Sox, which normally wouldn't be significant but the return of Tribe skipper Francona to the place he managed to two World Series titles in his eight-ye...

  16. Five things to watch this weekend

    Eric Karabell

    The Washington Nationals, fresh off a 98-win season and expecting a similar result in 2013, enter their weekend series with fewer wins than their surprising opponents, the Pittsburgh Pirates. Which team is better? That's an easy one. It's the team wi...
