TweetDoing a mock draft is so much fun but, reader beware, no one, and I mean no one, gets a good amount of the picks correct. Certain teams stay incredibly quiet, some teams have higher-ups that butt-in and take “their guy” (I’m looking at you, Rockies, when the scouting director wanted Evan Longoria but he […]

Blake Tekotte Gets the Call http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/23/blake-tekotte-gets-the-call-2/ Mon, 23 May 2011 18:28:53 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/23/blake-tekotte-gets-the-call-2/

TweetThe San Diego Padres are ready to give center field prospect Blake Tekotte a shot in the Majors. Tekotte, a patient center fielder with speed and some pop, was ranked #158 in my top 175 prospects list. The ranking was a bit higher than most but nowhere near as high as the optomistic Adam Foster […]

A Dead Art – The Complete Game http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/12/a-dead-art-%e2%80%93-the-complete-game/ Thu, 12 May 2011 18:11:55 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/12/a-dead-art-%e2%80%93-the-complete-game/

TweetIn this day and age we baseball fans have seen advanced statistics and advanced scouting change the way the game is played. Over the past decade we have grown accustomed to seeing a starting pitcher go maybe 6 innings then see a plethora of relievers, one specialist after another, get the call to get a […]

The Legend of Sam Fuld http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/12/the-legend-of-sam-fuld/ Tue, 12 Apr 2011 18:46:15 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/12/the-legend-of-sam-fuld/

TweetThe Legend of Sam Fuld is something that is sweeping the Rays fan base and is a popular tag on Twitter right now. Sam Fuld Eats Chick Fil-A on Sundays. The Red Sox check under their bed for Sam Fuld. Sam Fuld is bored by The Most Interesting Man in the World, who bows whenever […]

2011 Top 175 Prospects http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/23/2011-top-175-prospects/ Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:15:25 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/23/2011-top-175-prospects/

TweetThere is no need to bore you with multiple paragraphs that you will not read or maybe skim over at best. Everyone wants to see the list, whether they will agree with it or not. One note is that I did not include anyone that does not qualify as a rookie, meaning anyone over 130 […]

2011 Rays Projections: Ben Zobrist http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/22/2011-rays-projections-ben-zobrist/ Tue, 22 Mar 2011 14:35:57 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/22/2011-rays-projections-ben-zobrist/

TweetI won’t bore you with a long post about how Ben Zobrist will bounce back because quite frankly I already wrote it. Bottom line was that Zobrist was still swinging the same percentage of time but he was letting more strikes in the zone go by and swinging, yet making weak contact, at more balls […]

2011 Rays Projections: Dan Johnson http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/21/2011-rays-projections-dan-johnson/ Mon, 21 Mar 2011 15:31:51 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/21/2011-rays-projections-dan-johnson/

TweetDan Johnson may be the toughest Ray to project. Johnson has never had 500 plate appearances in any Major League season and will be 31 on Opening Day. Is there a reason he has not hit the 500 PA mark? Is he what he is, an incredibly patient hitter that is more of a Quad-A […]

2011 Fantasy Rankings: Shortstops http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/16/2011-fantasy-rankings-shortstops/ Wed, 16 Mar 2011 17:31:12 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/16/2011-fantasy-rankings-shortstops/

TweetShortstops, ah, the shallowest of all the positions. You will notice in my rankings how shallow the position is because there are only two players in Tier 1 and none in Tier 2. In fact, it is so shallow that Tier 5 starts at the 12th ranked SS, meaning at least one owner in a […]

TweetThirdbase is a very top heavy group. Odds are that the top tier will be gone by the middle of the 2nd round and you may end up reaching a little early for a second tier thirdsacker just to fill the position. Your best option may to to reach for a top tier guy because […]

The Worst Player in the Majors Is… http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/14/the-worst-player-in-the-majors-is%e2%80%a6/ Mon, 14 Mar 2011 17:57:28 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/03/14/the-worst-player-in-the-majors-is%e2%80%a6/

Tweet… Melky Cabrera. I find it rather hard to believe that any team would give a contract to Melky Cabrera after the season that he had with the Atlanta Braves last year which was the worst of any player in 2010. Well, the Kansas City Royals gave him a Major League deal worth $1.25M plus […]
