Most Untradeable Fantasy MLB Keepers: No. 14-30

April 4, 2010 Leave a comment

The funny thing about fantasy keeper leagues, is that there’s no single winning formula in which to build your perennial contender. If you had to peg a strategy though, continually upgrading your keeper core from year-to-year, making them as strong as possible, would probably be the way to go.

The question of how to go about doing so, is a riddle that too few ever figure out. Identifying your Holy Grails can often be hard enough as it is. It’s easy to look at the previous year’s numbers to figure out the most helpful players, but much harder to take recent history, player make-up, team/ballpark support, position, age and skill sets, to prognosticate a player’s potential upside.

Lucky for you, I’m here to do it all for you. Read more…

2010 AL Central Preview

With their team’s epic collapse finally secured after a 12-inning 6-5 loss to the Minnesota twins in the AL Central tie-breaker game, Detroit Tigers fans found themselves with mouths full of poison.

Not too different from that which was found in mass quantities in slugger Miguel Cabrera’s blood just a few days prior.

No team in the history of MLB had ever lost a division which they led from May 10th until the final day of the regular season. No team had ever lost a lead of three games with only four to play. No team had ever (presumably) let a player play in a critical night-cap, after one of his own, leading to a Blood Alcohol Level of .26 as late as 5 a.m. on game-day.

The Detroit Tigers accomplished all of those feats. The question the rest of the AL Central is interested in, is whether or not that trave-sham-ockery will carry over into the 2010 season. Are the Tigers still favored to win the crown? Read more…

Got Mail?

Alright, so it may have been roughly a month ago when I promised a Got Mail? blog. I got sidetracked with the NBA Finals, a Hodge Podge blog, some site notes and a sweet Top-10 YouTube clips blog. So let’s not focus on my month old preview, but rather the goodness I brought you since then. And don’t call it a broken promise, just delayed.

So here I am, ready to bring my “A” game. As always, our readers sent in some fantastic queries, but the biggest question is whether I’ll lead with an MLB, NBA Draft, NBA Finals, U.S. Open or Nike Puppets question… Read more…

The Hodge Podge: A Whirlwind of Fury

In getting caught up in the NBA Finals, Britton, Dan and I haven’t been fulfilling our civic duties of satisfying your baseball fix. For that we apologize. In retribution I’ve decided to give the Hodge Podge a bit of flare, by making this chaotic array of thoughts only about baseball.

Let’s do this.

I’ve been thinking… Read more…
