Revisiting Bold Predictions: National League East

Back in March, I penned some bold predictions about every Major League team. I’m revisiting them division by division to see how I did. ATL – A healthy Dan Uggla doesn’t log 400 plate appearances for the Braves in 2014. I was so right about this one (the writing was on the wall). Uggla only [...]

Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Outfield

Seriously, was there any doubt who the top outfielder is? No, and not for the next 5 years. It’s Mike Trout until at least 2019. Last year’s NL MVP is the unanimous #2 OF, and after that, things start getting a little fuzzy.

Mock Draft Analysis – 12-team, 5×5 ESPN league

Mock drafts are never perfect and will never be able to fully simulate the thrill and indecision of a real fantasy draft. However, mock drafts can paint a broad picture of how the general public views this season’s crop of players. It also allows you to simulate certain decisions you’ll have to make during your [...]

Surprising Offenses

My sophomore year in college, I transferred to a new school and was placed in a dorm with a senior. He was a decent enough guy, I guess. I do recall he was very keen on keeping a clean gun. Yeah, gun. He was an avid hunter and kept a pistol (in a locked box) [...]

Called Shots: Week 10

One of the biggest surges in this week’s rankings comes from Adam Lind, who I went over in a separate post yesterday.  While Lind has flown somewhat under the radar, Domonic Brown cannot help but steal the attention of the entire baseball world.  In his past 15 games Brown has gone absolutely bonkers, hitting .426 [...]

Called Shots: Week 8

With one quarter of the season behind us, the rankings are finally taking shape.  With a huge week, Carlos Gonzalez moves up into the third position and one could easily make an argument for him at #1 overall.  Owners are still waiting for Ryan Braun, Bryce Harper and Justin Upton to get in gear with [...]

Called Shots: Week 7

I am all in on Josh Donaldson.  He is making his debut on the rankings this week at #85 and is only going to move up if the past is any indication.  Donaldson was the 48th overall pick of the 2007 draft by the Chicago Cubs and was one of the pieces used to acquire [...]

Called Shots: Week 6

The biggest riser of the past week is Starling Marte, who has outperformed Andrew McCutchen so far and is one off the league lead for stolen bases with 10 to go along with his 5 jacks.  He sports a .203 ISO and a .325/.390/.528 triple slash line.  Basically exactly what McCutchen’s owners hoped for when [...]

Called Shots: Week 5

Justin Upton finally takes the top spot this week, as there seems to be no way of slowing him down.  David Ortiz makes the biggest jump, from the 87th position to #64 after returning from the DL ten days ago and proceeding to hit .500 so far with 3 HR.  The man in front of [...]

Called Shots: Week 4

The biggest stories of the season so far have been the power outbursts by players who always had the potential, but had not displayed it consistently at the major league level.  Justin Upton has continued his hot start and has 9 home runs through the first three weeks to lead MLB.  Bryce Harper is right [...]
