The ‘Little Things’
Inside Edge has developed a metric to collect all the things that simply don't show up in the box score.

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Shortstop Rankings
As rough as second base is offensively, shortstop might be even worse. The top options at the position are still relatively sexy, but they all come with their own drawbacks. After the top five you get into players with low upside or prospects that haven’t yet played in any meaningful games. As dynasty owners we get to witness players grow and mature while he follow them, sometimes for an entire career. Positions have ebbs and flows like all things in life, and I think that we’re about to...

Kris Bryant, 2015 Fantasy Outlook
Okay, so I'm basically going to have to do a post for every Cubs prospect. They have me prospiqued. I've been knocked on the head and no one can find any smelling salts, so they're holding Cubs prospects under my nose. A Nubian genie is offering me three wishes and I'm taking three Cubs prospects. I already gave you my Jorge Soler fantasy. Today, it's Kri...

2015 fantasy baseball profile: Travis d’Arnaud
Travis d’Arnaud will be in the mix for a top 5 catcher spot in 2015 Travis d’Arnaud was a highly touted prospect before his big league debut. He was a consensus top 20 prospect in the game and was ranked as the #6 overall prospect in baseball by MLB.com before the 2013 season. d’Arnaud hit .311/.371/.542 with 21 HR and a 150 wRC+ in the Easter...

AL Notes: Provas, Beimel, Correa, Shields, Royals
Sad news today out of Chicago, as longtime White Sox scout Paul Provas passed away from brain cancer at age 63. As Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports, Provas had been scouting for the South Siders since 1993 after doing the same for the cross-town rival Cubs dating back to 1983. MLBTR extends its condolences to his f...

Episode 175 The latest episode of “The Sleeper and the Bust” is live! Zach Sanders and Nicholas Minnix talk end-of-season second basemen rankings, which went up on Monday, as well as what they think of 2015 prospects for some of those second basemen, including: Kolten Wong, Dee Gordon, Jose Altuve, Ben Zobrist, Rougned Odor, Jonathan […]

Blue Jays Begin Contract Talks With Melky Cabrera
The Blue Jays are hopeful to retain Melky Cabrera and have opened preliminary discussions with his representatives at the Legacy Agency,

Luis Valbuena: Bueno, or No?
This is an article about Luis Valbuena. What follows might be rendered moot if Kris Bryant wins the Cubs’ third base job out of spring training next year. Even if Bryant doesn’t do so, he’s probably not long for Triple-A ball, and should be up in the big leagues for good by midseason. So, unless […]

Week 8 Rankings


Up next in defensive shifting: five-man infields?
Listen, my children, and you shall hear / Of the groundballing ways of Ben Revere Bringing an outfielder into the infield is rare, but it does happen. It tends to be based on the fielders and the situation, and not the batter at the plate. The classic scenario: home team has the winning run on third with less than two outs, in the ninth inning or later. A ball on the ground cou...

NL East Links: Kaneko, Cuddyer, Ricciardi, Braves
Japanese right-hander Chihiro Kaneko is visiting the United States to get a first-hand look at the atmosphere of Major League Baseball by visiting the World Series, according to Yahoo Sports Japan (

“Perusing the Perimeter” Week 8 Blog


Are the Giants a modern-day baseball dynasty?
It's difficult to reach the World Series, let alone do it in three out of five seasons like the Giants have. How does their five-year streak stack up in baseball history? When the term "dynasty" is used, certain teams come immediately to mind -- the Yankees, the 1970...

Braves To Name John Hart President Of Baseball Operations
10:58am: The Braves have officially announced the move, adding that Hart signed a three-year contract which will run through the 2017 season — the first in their new stadium, SunTrust Park. “I’m delighted that John Hart has agreed to accept the position of President, Baseball Operations,” team president John Schuerholz said in a press release. “Our organization is now poised to move forward in the best possible manner to do the imp...

Mango ChUtley
Chase Utley entered the season with two big questions to answer – could he stay healthy and how hard would age related decline bite? The answers turned out to be yes (good!) and pretty hard (not so good). Despite that, Utley turned in $15 of value per Mr. Sandman with an average preseason cost of […]

Blue Jays Receiving Calls On Adam Lind
Blue Jays first baseman/DH Adam Lind has drawn interest from a number of teams, including National League clubs, reports Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun. O...

What Happened to Aaron Hill?
Since his 2007 semi-breakout performance, Aaron Hill has been an enigma. In fact, he’s run the gambit from being really good, mediocre and bad from a fantasy perspective over those years. Unfortunately, Hill owners got the bad version this year, as he ranked just 17th in earnings among second basemen. Since it would be fun […]

Week 8 Start Em, Sit Em
Armando once again has provided his weekly starts and sits to alleviate the stress that fantasy owners go through while finalizing their lineups. Armando Marsal Fantasy Writer Teams on bye: 49ers and

Will Scooter Gennett Develop Into A Viable Fantasy Option In 2015?
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) It was obvious that Gennett was the preferred second base option over Rickie Weeks last season, and chances are he’s going to be handed the full-time job in 2015. Does that make him a player we want to target,

Chris Iannetta: One of my Favorite Players
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have a lot of tremendous fantasy options, most notably the great Mike Trout, but one of my favorite Angels is Chris Iannetta.  I am a fan of his because Iannetta has fantastic plate discipline. Chris Iannetta has a career walk rate of 14.2%.  In 2014, his walk rate was […] Chris Iannetta: One ...

Week 8 Tight End Rankings
Julius Thomas had his first game without a TD last week, but does that mean he isn't the top ranked TE for week 8? Robert gives you his TE rankings for week 8 to find out. Well week 8 is going to be starting here soon, so it is time to make those roster decisions.  The Tight End position has always been viewed as a collection of mediocre players who are TD dependent to get points ...

Here's a defense of the approach that emphasizes the duel between pitcher and batter.

Early 2015 Fantasy Shortstop Rankings
Continuing with our early 2015 positional rankings, we move on to my beloved shortstop position. As I explained before revealing my previous early 2015 rankings, what you can expect to find in this series is rankings, key positional eligibility changes, and key free agents. However, if you are looking for more of a “state of the position,” you should check out our awesome positional recap series that you can find here. Or heck, better yet, read em’ both! Ranking Methodology: It all com...

Joc Pederson, 2015 Fantasy Outlook
The other day I said that Jorge Soler was going to be your top rookie in 2015 fantasy baseball. Big words from a little man. At least I am a man, and not just an italicized voice. Joc Pederson would've been the top rookie if I saw the Dodgers committed to him out of spring training. There's still time for that to happen. Like trading And...

Week Eight Data Study


AL Central Notes: Aviles, Soria, Burton
As the Royals look to even the score in the World Series against the Giants, other teams in the division are shifting their focus to the offseason. Here are a few notes from the AL Central… The Indians are expected to exercise their $3.5MM club option on Mike Av...

Free Agent Profile: Rafael Soriano
The Nationals gave Rafael Soriano $28MM (half of it deferred) over two years and sacrificed a draft choice to install him at the back of the pen of one of the league’s most talented rosters. Though he was a reasonably productive pitcher, however, Soriano was not the force that Wash...

AL Notes: Indians, Hunter, Davis
In his latest mailbag piece, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com looks at various facets of the Indians roster. Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t predict any sweeping changes for the Cleveland roster. Here’s more from Bastian and around the AL. The Indians bullpen seems set behind closer

Give Dustin Pedroia A Hand, Please
In 2013, Dustin Pedroia had what most fantasy baseball enthusiasts considered a down year. Despite hitting .301/.372/.415, Pedroia’s counting stats slipped to single digit home runs, and he failed to break 20 stolen bases for the first time since 2007 (not counting injury-plagued 2010). He did provide plenty of runs and RBI for the World […]

Fantasy football trade targets: Week 8
Looking to change up your roster? Here are some moves you should consider making heading into Week 8's matchup. It's hard to believe we're halfway through the fantasy season.

Rangers Notes: 40 Man Roster, Coaching Staff
We already learned today that hitting coach Dave Magadan would meet with Rangers manager Jeff Banister to discuss his future with the franchise. Here’s what new in Arlington, Texas. Banister, GM Jon Daniels, and key Rangers personnel sequestered themselves for 12 hours yesterday to discuss the state of the roster,

Friends With Gennett’s Hits
Scooter Gennett owns a .300 lifetime batting average. To be fair, that line is a bit misleading as his lifetime of major league hitting consists of 704 plate appearances spread out over parts of two seasons. The left-handed hitting second baseman has been used in a platoon fashion with the probable free-agent-to-be Rickie Weeks since […]

Do Not Draft Scott Kazmir Next Year!
Kazmir was a draft bargain in 2014 and went on to have a very good season, but next year he will not justify his draft slot. After missing all of the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Scott Kazmir resurfaced in 2013 as a Cleveland Indian and deliv...

Fun with World Series matchups
The World Series is too short to accurately assess the batter-pitcher matchups. However, we certainly can have a look at how things should play out by using available statistical tools. The World Series has finally begun! We have a very interesting battle between wild card teams for the title. The

Jose Altuve and Expectations of Regression
What will the fantasy baseball market look like for Jose Altuve in 2015? The Houston Astros’ second baseman, as a top-five commodity overall who wasn’t, on average, drafted as a top-five player at his position and barely within the top 100, according to Fantasy Pros’ ADP data, certainly helped some fantasy baseball players win this […]

Quick Hits: Nationals-Astros, Plantier, Cabrera, Hillman
Palm Beach County has approved $108MM in public funding for a $135MM spring training complex to be shared by the Nationals and Astros, writes James Wagner of The Washington Post. The clubs must still agree to a site for their new spring home. The ...

NL East Notes: Braves Catcher, Burnett, Tomas

AL Notes: Shields, Magadan, Yankees
Prior to last night’s three inning, five run meltdown, Mike Petriello of FanGraphs examined why Royals ace James Shields has failed to live up to h...

Death To One-Size-Fits-All
I’m here to introduce or perhaps reinforce an idea today. People always, always, ALWAYS oversimplify things. Why didn’t such-and-such team win? It’s because so-and-so made a bad pitch. We readily gobble up that answer even though it’s probably one of a thousand ways to explain why a team lost a contest. Fantasy baseball has its […]

The former Diamondbacks and Padres GM was seen taking in an AFL game with Dodgers president Stan Kasten and special adviser Pat Corrales. In...

What Can Rickie Weeks do for You?
It’s been a long couple seasons for Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks. The injuries and ineffectiveness finally took it’s toll in 2014, as Weeks was moved out of a full-time role for the first time since 2005. The move came at an inopportune time for Weeks, as he’s now set to be a free-agent. […]

Ben Zobrist: Is the Zorilla Becoming Extinct?
Since his 2009 breakout, Ben Zobrist has been a consistent all-around fantasy contributor, with his blend of power and speed. But the first chinks in the armor started to show in 2013. After hitting 20+ homers in three of his previous four seasons, he knocked just 12 out of the park. And after attempting at […]

Breakout or Bust: Will Michael Saunders Finally Emerge In 2015?
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) The Mariners’ Michael Saunders is hardly a new face, having made his Major League debut back in 2009. Since then he’s shown flashes but hasn’t been able to put things together over an entire season. If he had been

Travis d’Arnaud and his Top 5 Catcher Upside
Travis d’Arnaud was a prized catching prospect that the New York Mets obtained when they sent R.A. Dickey north of the border after his Cy Young article.  In 2014, Travis d’Arnaud was given the chance to be the full time catcher for the Mets, but he struggled big time in the first half.  In fact, […] Travis d’Arnaud and his Top 5...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Third Base Rankings
If you own one of the top 15 guys on this list as your dynasty league third baseman, then you have to be feeling pretty good about the position, or at least that it isn’t a huge hole on your team. Third base is very deep at the top and the prospects at the position are among the most dynamic power threats in the game. We saw a lot of breakouts in 2014 including Anthony Rendon, Josh Harrison, Todd Frazier, and Lonnie Chisenhall. We also so some players take a step back due to age or injuri...
