Yesterday RotoBaller participated in an awesome Q&A session on Reddit. Almost 200 questions & answers were posted, and each one was answered by @BillyJohnston14 and the RotoBaller team. We talked about recent MLB news, waiver wire pickups, sleepers, prospects, trades and much much more. You can click here to read a full transcript on Reddit of all... Read More

Although he's way more of a predictable power hitter than some of the potential sleepers on list below, it was still awesome to watch Edwin Encarnacion have the best May we’ve seen since Mickey Mantle. 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

The more likely the team is to win, the more likely these following players... Read More

I don’t know if a single player can win a fantasy baseball league, but Troy Tulowitzki is beginning to make me think it’s possible. This season, Tulo has a 227 wRC+. That means that out of every other hitter in baseball, Tulo is creating 127% more runs! You just can't find production like this often in your... Read More

C.C. Sabathia isn't the pitcher he used to be. A former workhorse who was as good a lock as any player in the game for 200+ innings a year, has now been shut down by the Yankees and sent to the DL with what team doctors are calling a 'degenerative knee condition.' Even before his... Read More
