BALLER MOVE: Target ~160 Overall ANALYSIS: Jean Segura had a down year in 2014, but he was injured and had gone through a terrible family tragedy. He just never got going like he had in 2013, but that is partially due to a .276 BABIP, down from .326 in 2013. The result was almost 50 fewer hits, and for somebody... Read More

  Draft Strategy for Deep Leagues What are deep leagues?  Are they anything over 10 team leagues?  The phrase "deep leagues" gets thrown around a lot on fantasy websites.  You see headlines like, “Deep League Sleeper” and “Deep League Targets” all over the internet.  Who are they targeting?  Are they targeting me since I’m in...

BALLER MOVE: Draft Target in Mid-to-Late Rounds ANALYSIS: Finding cheap SB and HR in the later rounds of your fantasy baseball drafts will help you win championships. Leonys Martin of the Texas Rangers can be that source of cheap steals, as he is currently an undervalued asset. Martin has 67 SB in the last two years, which... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 Overall ANALYSIS: Alex Rios might not reach his career high stolen bases of 42 last year, but Rios will very likely net 30+ SB for the Royals. Ned Yost loves to run, so Rios should see plenty of opportunities. When you consider his .275 BA and 15-20 HR, you are looking at a great OF option.... Read More

  We're Baaaaaaaack! What constitutes a bounceback or rebound year for hitters? For the sake of this list, I’m going to provide you with 10 hitters who should return to career averages or at least provide you with more than they gave in 2014.   Below are the first 5 hitters who should return you great “value”...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~80 Overall ANALYSIS: Jay Bruce has been a favorite of mine for the last three years, but he really killed us last year. Bruce was just awful in 2014, and it can be attributed to injuries. Somehow, he managed to talk the Reds into allowing him back on the field 14 days after tearing his meniscus... Read More

Welcome back to the second installment of We’re Baaaaaaaack! If you missed the first five bounce back candidates, be sure to check it out. This next group of hitters will also return the kind of value that fantasy experts look for in their drafts. Pull the trigger on these five guys at or around their ADPs, and you... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target as Low-End CA1 ANALYSIS: Miguel Montero is coming off a season in which he fell short of his career averages in HR, R, AVG, OBP and SLG. In the first half, he hit 11 HR, drove in 52 runs and earned his second All-Star appearance, but hit just .212 with 22 RBI and two HR... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target as 3B1 ANALYSIS: The Chicago Cubs may choose to wait two weeks to bring up Kris Bryant, giving themselves control over their top prospect through 2021. Bryant was Baseball America’s 2014 Minor League Player of the Year after hitting .325 with 43 HR and 110 RBI. Translating that success to the big league level is hard...

  Better in Chicago? I understand the Chicago Cubs addition of Miguel Montero was not all about his bat. He is also an upgrade defensively over Wellington Castillo. You can read all about his ability to frame and his defensive metrics in this great piece from Fangraphs. He'll hit in the middle of the rebuilt Cubs lineup.... Read More

  The North Side's Savior? When called up, Kris Bryant will become at least the 25th different third basemen to play for the Chicago Cubs since the year 2000. The regime of Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein have made the moves necessary (trade of Luis Valbuena) to open up the hot corner for Bryant. However,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 10-12 ANALYSIS: Melky Cabrera is coming off a good season with the Blue Jays in which he hit .301 with 16 HR and 73 RBI. Cabrera has hit 64% of his home runs from the left side of the plate in his career, and his new team, the White Sox, play... Read More

Melky Cabrera: A Questionable Past Melky Cabrera will be joining his sixth team this spring after signing a three-year, $42 million dollar contract with the White Sox. Cabrera is coming off a good season with the Blue Jays in which he hit .301 with 16 HR and 73 RBI. His strong performance undoubtedly helped him to... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target as High-End 3B1 ANALYSIS: In 2014, Josh Donaldson finished in the top four in HR, RBI, R and OPS among third basemen. He posted 29 HR, 98 RBI and 93 R, but hit a lowly .255, down from .301 in 2013. His counting numbers increased from 2013 to 2014, but his rate... Read More

  Josh Donaldson Can Still Be a Sneaky Draft Day Value All-Star Josh Donaldson is taking his talents up north, crossing the border to the launching pad known as the Rogers Centre. This is great news for his fans and current owners. Donaldson’s trade was part of Billy Bean’s dismantling of the Oakland A’s. The trade was... Read More
