2014 Fantasy Baseball: Dumpster Diving — Ryan Hanigan

Depending on the league you are in, dumpster diving is a pastime that could lead you to the playoffs in your league. Some leagues limit your moves, but even then it pays to pay attention to your waiver wire. You can think of the waiver wire the same way that stock brokers look at stocks. Some stocks are the kind you hold onto for years and use them to stabilize your retirement. Others...

Kyle Farnsworth Replaces Jose Valverde as Mets Closer

We all knew that the time was coming and inevitable, we just didn’t know when. Well that question has been answered as veteran right-hander Kyle Farnsworth has been named the replacement to Jose Valverde as the New York Mets closer. While Farnsworth has had a bloated ERA of the mid-4.0 range, he did do a fairly decent job in 2011 as the Tampa Bay Rays closer, racking up 25 saves...

Fantasy Roundup: Time to Sell Fielder

Based on his ADP, I was not a believer in Prince Fielder because of his declining performance against fastballs. Specifically, he was making less hard contact. The image below shows his WHAV (Well Hit Average) against fastballs since 2008. A declining trend indicates a loss of bat speed. Bat speed is extremely important for every hitter, but it’s even more important for power...

Mets Go From JV To Junior Farnsity

Terry Collins announced a change at the top of Mets bullpen system on the down, Jose Valverde would concede the job to Kyle Farnsworth. Valverde handed him the ball, and like a true sportsman said, "You can't be worse than me, but I know you'll try." Terry Collins, or Mr. C as the players call him, told Valverde to sit on it, Farnsy's cool. Some have speculated...

Minor Accomplishments — Week 3

2013 was supposed to be a breakout year for Trevor Story, who was coming off of an exciting 2012 campaign at Low-A Asheville where hit .277/.367/.505 with 18 HR and 15 SB. That line, combined with the face he was stepping up to the hitter-friendly environment of the Cali League, made for some serious hype last spring – hype which his on-field performance couldn’t match. Story...

Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitchers For Week 4

Every week I will compile a list of all the two-start pitchers during the next week.

Make sure to pay attention to his opponents and that is...

Simon Says Pick Up Alfredo

"I know it was you, Alfredo, you broke my heart--because I should have picked you up yesterday. You're nothing to me now. Not a brother, not a friend--but, I'll admit you may be an intriguing add in fantasy baseball this week." Michael Corleone's words for his fantasy team are harsh but true. Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon continued his streak of success yesterday...

Buy Myers With Zest As He’s No Lemon

I remember distinctly the day Will Clark retired. I just got home from a Winter Solstice Pageant. I was only 12 years old at the time, but my mustache was already coming in. Earlier that night, when I was singing in the pageant, a mother yelled out from the audience, "Who's the midget with the mustache?" Then another parent yelled out, "Or is it a dwarf? I...

Fantasy Roundup: Salazar, Dickey Continue to Struggle

Salazar’s command hasn’t been there in the early going (Photo: Jason Miller/Getty Images) For the first three innings Danny Salazar was efficient, threw a lot of strikes, and missed a lot of bats. However, near the end of the fourth inning he lost command of his fastball. The command issues got even worse in the fifth inning as he started the inning by walking Alex Avila and...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week Three Musings

lidom.com (LIDOM) A few tweets from my colleague, Brett Talley, serve as the motivation for one of my talking points in this week’s musings.

However, it also provides a golden opportunity to discuss the strategy of stashing prospects. Don’t Be That Guy or Gal,...

K-Zar Danny The Not-So-Great

This should go down easier than Danny Salazar's last start, but it's still not going to be that easy to digest. You have a Tums handy? Good, take like seven of them. Don't worry, if they give you kidney stones, it will take your mind off of K-Zar. Something is wrong. I hypothesized that he was tipping his pitches last time. It didn't make sense that he would...
