Will Scooter Gennett Develop Into A Viable Fantasy Option In 2015?
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) It was obvious that Gennett was the preferred second base option over Rickie Weeks last season, and chances are he’s going to be handed the full-time job in 2015. Does that make him a player we want to...
Chris Iannetta: One of my Favorite Players
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have a lot of tremendous fantasy options, most notably the great Mike Trout, but one of my favorite Angels is Chris Iannetta. I am a fan of his because Iannetta has fantastic plate discipline. Chris Iannetta ha...

Joc Pederson, 2015 Fantasy Outlook
The other day I said that Jorge Soler was going to be your top rookie in 2015 fantasy baseball. Big words from a little man. At least I am a man, and not just an italicized voice. Joc Pederson would've been the top rookie if I saw the Dodgers c...

AL Notes: Indians, Hunter, Davis
In his latest mailbag piece, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com looks at various facets of the Indians roster. Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t predict any sweeping changes for the Cleveland roster. Here’s more from Bastian and around the AL.
Give Dustin Pedroia A Hand, Please
In 2013, Dustin Pedroia had what most fantasy baseball enthusiasts considered a down year. Despite hitting .301/.372/.415, Pedroia’s counting stats slipped to single digit home runs, and he failed to break 20 stolen bases for the first time ...

Friends With Gennett’s Hits

Do Not Draft Scott Kazmir Next Year!
Kazmir was a draft bargain in 2014 and went on to have a very good season, but next year he will not justify his draft slot.
After missing all of the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Scott Kazmir resurfaced in 2013 as a Cleveland Indian and deliv...

Death To One-Size-Fits-All

Ballsy with Trevor Cahill
Here’s my ballsiest, way-too-early, 2015 Fantasy Baseball Prediction: Trevor Cahill becomes a fantasy asset again at age 27: the magical-mystery-kind. For only the second time of his career last year, his FIP was sub-4.00, but his left-on-b...
Can We Buy Low on Jedd Gyorko?
The case of Jedd Gyorko, 2014, is a curious one. It’s an ugly one, too, with that .210 batting average and 10 home runs he put up in 443 plate appearances this past season. The San Diego Padres certainly hoped for more given that they signed...

The 2014 Royals are eerily similar to the '07 Rockies

Jonathan Schoop: Power and Impatience

Daniel Murphy: Underwhelming or underappreciated?
In 2013, Daniel Murphy defied all expectations by vaunting into the top-five tier of fantasy second basemen, making him one of the best bargains at the keystone sack and a tempting draft target back in March. Unfortunately, he couldn’t quite kee...

It was a move that every rebuilding team should mak...
Buy ‘Em or Deny ‘Em: Has Bryce Harper Been Over-Hyped Or Is A Bounce Back Coming?
by Ray Kuhn Bryce Harper just turned 22 and completed his third major league season. He still has a lot of baseball ahead of him, and also some maturing and growing to do, would be an understatement. It doesn’t mean the outfielder is not a
Dee Gordon: The New Juan Pierre?
It’s not often that a player we failed to even rank in the preseason finishes third in overall value at his position. But that’s exactly what Dee Gordon did, earning the third highest dollar value among second basemen this year. If som...
