TweetIn the final installment of “Tiers, Not Fears,” we have landed at relief pitching. A lot of fantasy owners hate having to deal with closers, but not me. While you read a lot of “don’t pay for saves” idioms being thrown out there, the fact is, if you play in a league that uses closers, […]

Tiers, Not Fears: OF http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/05/tiers-not-fears-of/ Mon, 05 Mar 2012 11:39:37 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/05/tiers-not-fears-of/

TweetIt’s no secret that there are a lot of great fantasy options in the outfield. The position is deep as hell, which is why I always tell people not to go too crazy overvaluing the top OFs. Sure there’s something comforting about selecting Matt Kemp or Ryan Braun with your first round pick knowing that […]

“Tiers, Not Fears:” Top 40 Shortstops http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/13/tiers-not-fears-top-40-shortstops/ Mon, 13 Feb 2012 13:07:59 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/13/tiers-not-fears-top-40-shortstops/

TweetThere’s no getting around it: the shortstop position is shallow as hell. Fantasy owners are forced to either overpay based on position scarcity, or take their chances with a cheap scrub. Most people in your fantasy league will not be happy with their SS, and they might even have one of the best options (see: […]

Tiers, Not Fears: Second Base http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/07/tiers-not-fears-second-base/ Tue, 07 Feb 2012 13:13:57 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/07/tiers-not-fears-second-base/

TweetSecond base has its appeal. The soft, bag of sand-like feel. The expression on her face when you move in unannounced on her unmentionables and proceed to pounce on her like a raccoon on a rotting pork shoulder… wait, we’re talking fantasy baseball? Oh, in that case, second base really isn’t that great. Sure it […]

First Base Rankings/Tiers http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/01/first-base-rankingstiers/ Thu, 02 Feb 2012 01:01:14 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/01/first-base-rankingstiers/

TweetNormally, the term "first base" is synonymous with "failure" for handsome sooth-sayers like myself. Yet when we are talking fantasy baseball, the word takes on a more positive connotation. First base is deep; always has been. You are pretty much guaranteed elite power numbers from the top six, and potential 30 HR hitters are littered […]

Don’s “Do Not Trust” List: Fantasy Baseball 2012 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/29/dons-do-not-trust-list-fantasy-baseball-2012/ Mon, 30 Jan 2012 00:54:41 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/29/dons-do-not-trust-list-fantasy-baseball-2012/

TweetPhysical Therapist Don Brown puts in work at Sons of Roto with analysis on ailing baseball players. Don identifies which players coming off injuries or surgeries are not worth the risk, bringing clarity to fantasy owners wanting information on which options to avoid and which options to draft. Hanley Ramirez, Tommy Hanson, Ryan Howard, Carl […]

Fantasy Baseball Catcher Rankings/Tiers http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/25/fantasy-baseball-catcher-rankingstiers/ Wed, 25 Jan 2012 23:57:33 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/25/fantasy-baseball-catcher-rankingstiers/

TweetEven Shaolin's Finest understood the power of tiers. So it's only right that we kick off the Sons of Roto 2012 Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit with a run down of the top 45 catchers in fantasy baseball, tier-by-tier. Why 45? It's a nod to the Wu Tang Clan's "Enter the 36 Chambers." Confused? You should […]

Adrian Gonzalez: Overrated? http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/26/adrian-gonzalez-overrated-2/ Mon, 26 Dec 2011 14:02:47 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/26/adrian-gonzalez-overrated-2/

TweetThe hype machine enveloped Adrian Gonzalez last year and fantasy owners expected other-worldly power numbers. “He’ll win the MVP!” some clamored. “He’s a demigod put on this earth to mash taters!” others yelled. “I’d totally let him bang me! In a platonic way!” another chimed in. Yeah A-Gone love was at an all-time high, but […]
