Mon, 23 Oct 2017 23:04:30 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.3 Pitch F/X Fantasy Sleepers: Middle Infielders http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/28/pitch-fx-fantasy-sleepers-middle-infielders/ Tue, 28 Feb 2012 16:54:42 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/28/pitch-fx-fantasy-sleepers-middle-infielders/

TweetLast time we took a look at the fantasy sleepers at the corner infield slots. Finding sleepers at the middle infield slots is a lot more challenging. Shortstops and second baseman are at such a high premium as it is. However, if we look hard enough we can find some players that might slide through […]

Pitch F/X Fantasy Sleepers: Outfielders http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/28/pitch-fx-fantasy-sleepers-outfielders/ Tue, 28 Feb 2012 16:52:22 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/28/pitch-fx-fantasy-sleepers-outfielders/

TweetWe have seen the best pitch f/x sleepers in the infield. The outfield is a breeding ground for sleepers of all shapes and sizes. That being said, when we look for the pitch f/x sleepers we are applying a little science to the guessing game. It isn’t as foolproof as counting cards in a Vegas […]

Making Sense of the Ryan Braun Situation http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/24/making-sense-of-the-ryan-braun-situation/ Fri, 24 Feb 2012 20:29:02 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/24/making-sense-of-the-ryan-braun-situation/

TweetA wise man once said that democracy was the worst form of government, except for all of the other ones. While Ryan Braun’s appeal could not be compared to any criminal trial in the United States in terms of its importance, the outcome and the reactions to it are fairly indicative of what you see […]

TweetYesterday, I took a look at the pitch f/x plate discipline rates for the projected National League lineups. Most of those projections came from mlbdepthcharts.com, but I altered a few lineups to something that made more sense to me. Today, we are doing the same with the American League lineups. Yesterday’s article got a lot […]

TweetWe’ve talked a lot about fantasy baseball the past several weeks. Many leagues have already gotten started with their drafts, but once the calendar turns to March people are going to start going nuts with their fantasy drafts, paying attention to spring games, and trying to catch up on positional rankings. Naturally, we here at […]

TweetWe continue with our series of looking at how the TRI projections are comparing with actual drafts going on. Of course, you will want to look up the average draft position closer to your draft to see what the current trends are. The average positions came from the first reporting on mlbdepthcharts.com’s fantasy magazine. Often, […]

TweetWe reach the end of our series on impact young players for the coming season. Since we only had eight second basemen, we are going to look at the top twelve impact young relievers. If you do the math you will see that we end up with 100 young players. Hudson Belinsky is going to […]

TweetOur own Hudson Belinsky broke the Yoenis Cespedes signing on this side based on a report from Yahoo’s Tim Brown. In actuality, Cespedes cannot officially sign until MLB clears him as an official free agent. Most sources think he will be cleared by Spring Training and it will not be a moment too soon for […]

TweetWe’ve finally caught up with the TRI projections. We are looking at the TRI projections for shortstops as compared to their average draft positions. There were some peculiar TRI projections at shortstop. Sometimes you can’t even trust your own projections and this might be one of those cases. You’ll be able to figure out the […]

TweetBefore we get started, I wanted to take the opportunity to plug mlbdepthcharts.com again. I just got the second installment of their fantasy magazine and they have up to date average draft rankings for every player. We will put those to use today when look at third basemen. Their average draft position includes all eligible […]
