2016 Minor League Preview: Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays sort of operate their franchise like your buddy that chases strippers and always ends up with a massive credit card bill to show for it. Sure, sometimes it makes for a once in a lifetime experience (Josh Donaldson), but other times it's for fleeting exploits with a disappointing outcome (David Price). Only the bill in this case isn't an actual physical one, but a bare...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: St. Louis Cardinals Team Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals fell short of a magical feat last season when they won 100 games during the regular season only to lose to their divisional foe Chicago in the first round. The team, which has not had a losing season in their least eight years, has won at least 90 games five times in that stretch and is predominantly run by the team’s youth, which seems to get better and...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: NL Starting Pitcher Projections

Rating position players was relatively easy. Runs above replacement tends to work pretty well and you only needed 20 players at each position. Grading out pitchers is considerably more difficult. Additionally, most teams carry at least five starters, and when you add in the standard 12-team league then you have yourself 60 starters. That seemed a little unwieldy, so I decided to...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Texas Rangers Team Preview

2015 Quick Overview The Texas Rangers surprised everyone when they went from last place in 2014 to edge the Houston Astros by two games in the 2015 standings. Despite a seemingly mediocre 88-74 record, the Rangers came within one game of advancing to the ALCS. They took a two games to none lead against the Blue Jays and lost three consecutive games to close out the season. Still...

2016 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT PROFILE: TREA TURNER

It isn’t often that a player regarded as highly as Trea Turner is traded away, but that’s exactly what happened in 2014 when the Nationals, in a three-team trade, acquired Turner from the Padres and only had to give up Steven Souza and Travis Ott to do it. Profile Turner shined at both AA and AAA in 2015 for the Nationals before getting the call up just before roster expansion...

Podcast: “Could You Change My Doorbell Ring To La Cucaracha”

I'm so glad baseball is approaching! Especially after, well, that happened in football... Anyway, on today's show we break down the Rockies/Rays trade swapping Jake McGee and Corey Dickerson, I then hijack the show to talk Brewers trades, and we spend the bulk of our show talking Grey's C and 1B ranks. Grey gets berated by some of JB's homerism! And we also talk a deep sleeper...

2016 Fantasy Baseball Prospect Profile: Alex Bregman

The Houston Astros had a huge image to overcome in the 2015 draft. In 2014, they drafted Brady Aiken first overall and failed to sign him. Something came up during his physical and they pulled their offer off the table. Ironically, he ended up having Tommy John surgery during the winter of 2015. As a result of the failed signing, Astros fans were excited when they had the second...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: New York Mets Team Preview

2015 Season in Review No one picked the New York Mets to be the National League representatives in the 2015 World Series when the season began. But after sweeping a pair of series against the division-favorite Nationals in early August and September and then clinching the NL East about two weeks later, they had to like their chances in the playoffs with that dominant starting rotation...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Relief Pitcher Projections

I will be the first to admit that grading out relievers is not my forte. Unfortunately, there is a huge disconnect between traditional baseball value and fantasy value. Fantasy value is dependent upon saves (and holds to a lesser extent). Saves and holds are essentially opportunity statistics. They have something to do with quality, but it involves the quality of the team more than...

2016 Minor League Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers

The best way to describe the Dodgers system is "an embarrassment of riches". Not only do they have one of the biggest budgets in MLB, but they're also the proud owner of one of the top farms in all of baseball. With two top ten prospects in Corey Seager and the newly two eyed Julio Urias, there's a ton of top level talent. Including top 100 darlings Grant Holmes, Jose De Leon, and...

30 Prospects in 30 Days: Steven Matz, New York Mets

Profile Steven Matz has already played baseball at the highest level there is. The 24 year-old left handed starting pitcher was given the ball for game four of the 2015 World Series and took the mound for the team he grew up rooting for, the New York Mets. It’s hard to believe that Matz is still considered a prospect already having already made three postseason starts, but with...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Right Field Projections

There are many ways to rank players. I don’t claim to have a monopoly on the truth, but I hope my methods balance analytics with common sense. The analytics part is probably the most involved. We take runs above replacement from the past three seasons according to three different sources (Baseball Prospectus, Baseball Reference, and Fangraphs). We apply a multiplier to make sure...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Miami Marlins Team Preview

2015 Quick Overview Finishing 71 – 91, the 2015 season wasn’t the kindest of years for the Miami Marlins on either side of the field. Ranking in the bottom fifth of the league in runs scored, home runs, on base percentage, and slugging percentage among others, the Marlins failed to generate a game plan that could consistently win games. The loss of Giancarlo Stanton for a good...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Cleveland Indians Team Preview

The most valuable fantasy players on the Indians are most certainly their pitchers. Competing for the best rotation in baseball, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and Danny Salazar headline the high strikeout staff and closer Cody Allen is one of the more underrated closers in baseball – he led the MLB in relief pitcher WAR last season. Let’s dig in to a very intriguing fantasy...

30 Prospects in 30 Days: Byron Buxton — Minnesota Twins

Profile Byron Buxton was the second overall draft pick in the 2012 draft by the Minnesota Twins. The 6-2, 190 pound centerfielder is known for his blazing speed and his incredible defensive attributes. Buxton, 22, has come along a little slower than most had hoped, in large part due to injuries. Buxton has been one of the top prospects in baseball since being drafted. While he has...

Changing of the Guard: Pocketful of Posey

Last year, I was probably Buster Posey's greatest champion. Not only was he the obvious number one catcher, but my futuristic math indicated that in points leagues he had first round value. While he had first round numbers, I wasn't actually suggesting drafting him in the first round. This would have been a very foolish and easily avoidable mistake. The reason was simple. Buster...
