TweetOF Michael Bourn consistently brings your team Stolen Bases (50+) and Runs (90+) with a Batting Average (.270+) you can easily live with on your roster. I was surprised to see how differently he was ranked on the big three fantasy baseball sites: ESPN #35; Yahoo! #50; CBS #74. In any format, Bourn is a […]

Fantasy baseball players with power and speed you should be targeting on draft day http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/09/fantasy-baseball-players-with-power-and-speed-you-should-be-targeting-on-draft-day/ Fri, 09 Mar 2012 14:41:09 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/09/fantasy-baseball-players-with-power-and-speed-you-should-be-targeting-on-draft-day/

TweetStandard fantasy baseball leagues use five basic statistics as offensive scoring categories (AVG, R, HR, RBI, SB) and finding the players who will contribute across most categories, if not all, should be your primary objective while those types of players are still available in the drafting pool. But what if I told you which of […]

Buy and Sell: Contract Year Players in the MLB http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/04/buy-and-sell-contract-year-players-in-the-mlb/ Mon, 05 Mar 2012 05:08:49 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/04/buy-and-sell-contract-year-players-in-the-mlb/

TweetContract year. Walk year. Opt-out year. Whatever the year, we have it covered for anybody having trouble keeping score at home. Some really big name players may very well be playing their final seasons with their respective teams, and you just might find that information useful. If you happen to play in a keeper league […]

TweetUnder the warm sun of Arizona, it’s already starting to feel like spring. Although the mornings and evenings have slight chill to them allowing you to see your breath, the days are sunny and bright with a hint of baseball in the air. One of the reasons I live inArizona(and there are many) is that […]

Fantasy baseball draft guide http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/23/fantasy-baseball-draft-guide/ Thu, 23 Feb 2012 18:10:42 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/23/fantasy-baseball-draft-guide/

TweetMany people have begun participating in mock fantasy draft in anticipation of their upcoming real drafts. Let me be the first to say… I do not understand this mentality. Mock drafts are different almost every time you do them and they don’t really give you much of a feel for how your real draft is […]

Why the A’s should trade for Ichiro Suzuki http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/22/why-the-as-should-trade-for-ichiro-suzuki/ Thu, 23 Feb 2012 04:21:32 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/22/why-the-as-should-trade-for-ichiro-suzuki/

TweetLast year, Ichiro Suzuki had his worst season. The Seattle Mariners right fielder and future Hall of Famer hit .272, 54 points below his lifetime average. He also had an OPS+ of 84 and -0.4 WAR and failed to win a Gold Glove or top 200 hits for the first time in his career, the […]

Justin Smoak: To Draft Or Not To Draft, That Is The Question http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/19/justin-smoak-to-draft-or-not-to-draft-that-is-the-question/ Sun, 19 Feb 2012 18:53:50 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/19/justin-smoak-to-draft-or-not-to-draft-that-is-the-question/

TweetIt is the middle of your draft. You have to fill the rest of your roster spots. You’re 30 seconds away from making your choice. The clock ticks down and you see Justin Smoak, first baseman for the Seattle Mariners. Should you draft him? He had a rough year, but got really hot at the […]

TweetYou wouldn’t expect a guy from Brooklyn growing up idolizing a catcher from Montreal, but I did. And I have the bad knees to prove it. The sad news of Gary Carter’s passing brings me back to a time in my life when little league, baseball cards, Topps Baseball Sticker Albums, wiffle balls and bats […]

TweetThe Miami Marlins may have a new name, a new uniform and a new look, but what’s going to happen when a ball is hit to center? The news broke this Monday (February 13th) that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes agreed to a four-year contract with the A’s thus turning down Miami’s offer. CBS Sports presumes that […]

TweetWith Prince Fielder signing with Detroit and Ryan Braun facing a possible 50 game suspension for allegedly using PED’s, the Brewers offseason has not gone so well. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t players with fantasy value on their roster. DO keep an eye on the Ryan Braun situation. A resolution is expected before […]

TweetLet’s be honest. Most of us baseball fans have learned more about WAR over the last two years of baseball’s Hall of Fame voting than we ever did in years of taking American History classes from middle school through college. Okay, okay. Different kinds of war. I get it. One is a heated battle between […]

TweetThe clock is ticking for the baseball Hall of Fame, about 11 months remaining now before the storm. The deepest class of players in decades will become eligible for Cooperstown, and this could get ugly. It won’t be pretty for newly-eligible candidates like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa, all connected to steroids, the […]
