TweetJust what is the average speed expectations at each position? We all know the outfield tends to have speed, but what are the numbers at other positions? Did you know that Carlos Pena was average speed at 1B, and that Chase Headley is a nice above-average pick for 3B? More speed analysis to come in […]

2012 Outfield Rankings http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/01/2012-outfield-rankings/ Wed, 01 Feb 2012 21:48:49 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/01/2012-outfield-rankings/

TweetWith Braun out of the picture, the top spot goes to Matt Kemp, unless you really believe Jacoby Ellsbury can repeat. Justin Upton could also find a new gear. This is a pretty deep ranking, but bear in mind the lower you get, the move arbitrary and fluid the exact position of a player is. […]

Mid-Round Pitchers with Upside http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/30/mid-round-pitchers-with-upside/ Mon, 30 Jan 2012 14:15:11 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/30/mid-round-pitchers-with-upside/

TweetThe starting pitching category in fantasy baseball has almost volatility as, well, relief pitching. Unless you're going to spend big for a stud like Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee it's harder to guarantee production from a hurler than from a slugger. And while there is often a lot of focus on late round flyers many […]

Salty as an alternative to Napoli http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/26/salty-as-an-alternative-to-napoli/ Thu, 26 Jan 2012 13:39:06 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/26/salty-as-an-alternative-to-napoli/

TweetThis article looks at the sleeper potential for Jarrod Saltalamacchia as a poor man's Mike Napoli in 2012. Personally I feel it could be risky with Boston considering three catchers (Lavarnway and Shoppach in the mix). But if it pays off, it'll be one of the best steals of the draft. Not every owner is […]

Fielder to Tigers Good News for Fantasy Owners http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/24/fielder-to-tigers-good-news-for-fantasy-owners/ Tue, 24 Jan 2012 21:58:03 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/24/fielder-to-tigers-good-news-for-fantasy-owners/

TweetThe Tigers made an unexpected move by signing Fielder to play first base. Apparently Miguel Cabrera will be moving to a new role; for this year it might be DHing, but in terms of fantasy we'd all love to see him go back to the hot corner. If he gains 3B eligibility, he immediately competes […]

2012 Shortstop Rankings http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/24/2012-shortstop-rankings/ Tue, 24 Jan 2012 15:34:56 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/24/2012-shortstop-rankings/

TweetThe three R's (Reyes, Rollins, Ramirez) have fallen a bit to allow Troy Tulowitzki to reign at the top. After the top tier, the position looks rather thin. There are a lot of guys who get full AB but really don't help in fantasy baseball, not to mention aging veterans, defense first players, and injury […]
