Sauceda's Slants: Buy Low Report - 8 Hitters to Target

There’s something positively blissful about scanning your rosters and seeing double-digit — or *gasp* single-digit! — ranks up-and-down the roster. But let’s be clear: these stats are in the past. They’re already banked. They shouldn’t overpower our valuation of them going forward because, really, that’s all that matters — what are they likely to produce... Read More

H2H Category Streamers - Week 9 Waiver Wire

There are plenty of strategies that fantasy managers explore in hopes of getting an advantage over their opponent. Heavy lineup, heavy starting pitchers, no catcher, all (or mostly) reliever staff, no reliever staff, etc. Even if you play a balanced lineup, injuries can cause holes. A few weeks without a key player won’t kill a... Read More

The Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 9

As important as it is to be active on the waiver wire, snagging that next hot bat or pitcher on a roll before anyone else can, let's be honest--there are only so many roster spots. That's why your watch list is just as important as your waiver wire activity, and perhaps even more so. Throughout... Read More

Buy or Sell - Undervalued and Overvalued Players for Week 9

We are nearly a third of the way through the fantasy season and things are starting to figure themselves out.

Lucas Giolito Has Arrived (For Real)

As a fan of Lucas Giolito and his potential for the last couple of years, I have to admit I'm bummed about his last outing. A complete game, four-hit shutout on the road against the Houston Astros, MLB's top offensive team??? This would be great, except couldn't you have waited until I finished this article... Read More

Keston Hiura Deserves Your Attention

Prospect call-ups have been getting all the baseball headlines recently - Austin Riley has been mashing, Brendan Rodgers has Coors Field, and fantasy owners are salivating over the presumed promotion of uber-prospect Yordan Alvarez.

Weighing In On Zac Gallen

Zac Gallen isn't a name that anyone outside of prospect hounds and die-hard NL-only fantasy players will be aware of. I would include Marlins fans in that group but I'm not sure there are much of us around anymore. Gallen has emerged as an under-the-radar name that could jump onto the scene without any fanfare while... Read More

Franmil Reyes and the Javy Baez School of Hard Knocks

For almost a month straight, Franmil Reyes did not take a walk. While that’s not a good thing, I’m not convinced that it’s a bad thing either. Since April 18th, Franmil Reyes has hit nine home runs, and that is definitely a good thing. Reyes’ carrying tool is his power. Walks don’t provide him a path... Read More

Angels In The Infield - The Rise of La Stella and Fletcher

The Los Angeles Angels have suffered injuries all across their infield this season, which has led to them being forced to play journeyman utility infielder Tommy La Stella and fringe-prospect David Fletcher in regular roles.
