MLB News and Notes: Week of May 7

Protection. It is needed in so many different ways. For fantasy owners, the best protection for fantasy owners is making sure you keep up with news concerning your players, such as hot and cold streaks, and whether an injury may impact playing time or lead to a stint on the disabled list. Speaking of protection, did you notice what happened to Yadier Molina on Saturday? The veteran Cardinals catcher took a 100 MPH foul tip off the bat of Kris Bryant in his groin. Even with all of the protection catchers wear, that can still…

MLB News and Notes: Week of April 23

I usually do not record baseball games and watch them, but last Friday night was the exception. This was because the Dodgers were playing the Nationals, and the pitching matchup was Max Scherzer versus Clayton Kershaw. First, this was the first time two pitchers with three or more Cy Young Awards have matched up since 2006. Second, I took a little grief during the Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational when I took Scherzer with the eighth pick over Kershaw. At least for one night, Scherzer was just a bit better, as he allowed…

Waiver Wire Report: Need a Bud? Norris Steps Up in St. Louis

Let me start by thanking you all. Joey Lucchesi's ownership finally increased to more than 75% of Fantrax leagues, so he will not be included here again.

2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Outfield Part 3 (51-75)

The last few rounds of standard fantasy drafts are where things get interesting. Anyone can draft Mike Trout first overall. However, that's not how fantasy championships are won. The real difference makers are the sleepers and upside picks you make in the tail end of your draft that pan out and provide major value for your squad.  Some call these picks, "lottery tickets." I call them, "championship tickets." Over the last couple of weeks, we've ranked the top-50 fantasy outfielders for the 2018 season. Now, we finish up…

Dynasty Dugout: Outfield Risers and Fallers

In last week's edition of Dynasty Dugout, we discussed trends amongst middle infielders. This week we dive into the outfield where there's a lot happening. Without a doubt, the position that has seen the most trends so far in 2017 is the outfield. Between top prospects, post-hype sleepers, and former stars, a lot of big names are trending in dynasty leagues. Trending Up Aaron Judge, New York Yankees Let’s start with the biggest outfield riser, no pun intended. Actually, yes, pun intended. Aaron Judge is a goliath. At…
