Turning Two: Will Anyone Hit .350?

Turning Two: Can Anyone Hit .350?   Welcome back to our fourth edition of Turning Two. We've now discussed who will hit 50 HR, who will win 20 games, and who can put up a 20/20. Last week's topic was fairly common year over year, so let's tackle a real challenge: hitting .350. Hitting .350 is a daunting task.... Read More

We've got just the remedy to prepare you for the upcoming baseball season with our new segment, Turning Two. So what is Turning Two?

With 17 home runs and 33 RBI in the past 30 days (not games), I’d say he’s hotter than the David Price... Read More

While this week's waiver wire pickups at the corner infield spots include some familiar faces that continue to produce and remain widely available, there are also two sleepers on the list that have yet to have play in a game in 2014. Fresh options are usually hard to come by at this point in the season... Read More

Today I'll be ranking the top 1st baseman fantasy keepers for 2014. I'll assume a fairly standard keeper league here for simplicities sake: 10 teams, and a simple keeper penalty in which the owner forfeits the round in which the keeper was originally drafted for the upcoming year's draft. For example: if a player originally... Read More
