About Joe Gallina - RotoBaller

When I’ve got time to bleed, I bleed Giant Pinstripe blue. I’m a fantasy guru with a knack for finding that diamond in the rough that will help you win your fantasy league. Over the years, my fellow fantasy team owners would scratch their heads when I would draft and stash future fantasy stars like Kershaw, Strasburg and Puig. When I drafted rookies like Doug Martin and Eddie Lacy they'd ask themselves, who are these guys? Well now they know, and because I have agreed to share my fantasy sports knowledge with you, you'll know before everyone else too.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~205 Overall ANALYSIS: In between his suspension for the “pine tar incident” and a long DL stint, Michael Pineda did show flashes of brilliance last season. His first-strike and swinging-strike percentages were well above average. Not only did Pineda do a good job of getting ahead of batters, but once batters were behind in... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 Overall ANALYSIS: Jorge Soler is a pure power hitter with great bat speed and patience to make opposing pitchers work. He doesn’t strike out as much as the typical slugger, and he’s not afraid to take a walk. Even though Soler spent a productive 24 games with the Cubs late last season, he... Read More

The Called Shot, The Billy Goat & The 27 Year Old Throughout its long history, the game of baseball has been surrounded by legends and folklore.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~230 Overall ANALYSIS: Henderson Alvarez compiled a 12-7 record along with a 2.65 ERA in 30 starts last season, yet he is consistently available after the 20th round in most 12-team leagues for 2015. The Marlins have enough belief in Alvarez’s talent to make him their opening day starter while Jose Fernandez is recuperating from... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~200 Overall ANALYSIS: Joc Pederson decimated the Pacific Coast League’s pitching last year, slugging 33 HR and stealing 30 bases. By jettisoning Matt Kemp to the rival Padres, the Dodgers have given the rookie Pederson a vote of confidence, as well as the everyday centerfield job. Beyond his tools, Pederson gives the Dodgers a young player who wants... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~240 Overall ANALYSIS: It’s not often that minor league statistics can be used to predict the performance of a future major leaguer, but when it comes to Jesse Hahn, it’s safe to say the writing has been on the wall all along.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~160 Overall ANALYSIS: The Texas Rangers recently announced that Leonys Martin would be their everyday leadoff hitter, which should give his fantasy value a nice boost.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~240 Overall ANALYSIS: Oswaldo Arcia has a ton of power, but if he expects to make it in the big leagues, he needs to cut down on the strikeouts. Arcia has put in a lot of time in Venezuela this offseason, working on becoming a more patient hitter. He had a brutal 31% strikeout rate... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~130 Overall ANALYSIS: Two years removed from Tommy John surgery, former top prospect Carlos Carrasco finally enjoyed a breakout year for the Indians in 2014.

BALLER MOVE: Target Late in Deep Leagues leagues ANALYSIS: Michael Taylor is a power hitting speed demon who’ll likely be the Washington Nationals’ centerfielder for the first month of the season.

BALLER MOVE: Target Between Rounds 10 and 12 ANALYSIS: The Miami Marlins have the potential to put up one of the best young outfields in baseball for the next several years. We’re all familiar with Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich has garnered a ton of attention, but 23-year-old Marcell Ozuna is still flying under the radar. Ozuna’s skillset... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~14th Round ANALYSIS: Much was expected from Michael Wacha last season after he posted a 9.05 K/9 rate and 2.78 ERA in nine starts during his 2013 rookie campaign. Unfortunately, a stress reaction in his right shoulder forced the Cardinals to shut him down for seven weeks in 2014. Once he came back... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft Target Late in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Kennys Vargas got a brief taste of major league pitching last season - and after racking up nine home runs, 10 doubles and 38 RBI in just 215 at bats, he is ready for a second helping in 2015. Vargas’ career minor league power numbers and... Read More

Every fantasy player wants to boast that he or she picked up a player in the wee hours of their fantasy drafts who put up a genuine a breakout season. Indian outfielder Michael Brantley and Colorado’s Corey Dickerson were perfect examples from last season. There's nothing more satisfying than picking up a guy in the 20th round of your... Read More
