Champ or Chump: Dee Gordon & Giancarlo Stanton

In what has become something of a South Florida tradition, the Miami Marlins are again selling everything on their roster in an effort to reduce costs. The team is unlikely to have any established names when the 2018 season starts, setting it up as a land of opportunity for fantasy owners searching for gems on... Read More

As we move closer to the 2018 MLB season, the MLB Winter Meetings came to a close on the third day in Orlando, FL. After a lot of projected moves over the first two days, some big name players came off the board today, filling major holes for teams looking to contend in 2018. It... Read More

As we prepare for the 2018 MLB season, fantasy owners need to look at what is next from starting pitchers. Rookie hurlers from 2017 like Jordan Montgomery, German Marquez, Kyle Freeland, and Luis Castillo all garnered Rookie of the Year votes and were key parts of their teams' successes. It is important to be on... Read More

As we move closer to the 2018 MLB season, the MLB Winter Meetings continue in Orlando, FL. There were some signings later in the day involving relievers, but the biggest news revolved around trades that are in the making. As the Miami Marlins are working to shed payroll, they are working to move two of their... Read More

Now that big names like Giancarlo Stanton and Shohei Ohtani have moved, it's easy to stop paying attention to the lesser names on the transaction wire. Don't fall into that trap! The most prepared owners frequently perform the best, and everybody will have an educated opinion on guys like Stanton. Spin rate is still beyond... Read More

As we move closer to the 2018 MLB season, the MLB Winter Meetings have opened up in Orlando, Florida. Two of the biggest highlights of the winter have already occurred, first with Shohei Ohtani signing with the Los Angeles Angels and then Giancarlo Stanton being traded to the New York Yankees. Stanton was announced by... Read More

Last week, we discussed prioritizing power hitters when constructing your roster. In order to compete, most leagues require an average of roughly 25 home runs per active roster spot. Hitting that target requires a plan. However, power alone will not win a championship. Roster too many Joey Gallo types and you'll be left with a... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. I’ve already covered catchers. Today I'm bringing you my top 10 first basemen - dynasty prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues. The group of first base prospects simultaneously lost its star-power and recovered. Cody Bellinger, Josh... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. I’ve already covered catchers and first basemen. Today I'm bringing you my top 10 second basemen - prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues. The second base position is often a challenging position to find good... Read More

The hot stove has been more of an ice box so far this season, as few moves have been made of any fantasy consequence. This seems poised to change in the near future, as both Shohei Ohtani and Giancarlo Stanton should provide some clarity regarding their intentions before the new year. That said, the two...

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton set career highs in games played, home runs, RBI, and OPS, winning the National League MVP in 2017. Stanton was particularly potent in the second half, hitting 33 home runs in 73 games, and posted a Herculean .899 slugging percentage in the month of August alone. He was good in... Read More

Thanksgiving is over, meaning that it is officially time to start preparing for 2018 fantasy baseball drafts! This column usually uses sabermetrics to determine whether a given player is worth his current cost, but draft data isn't reliable this early in the offseason. Instead, we'll do a deep dive on the lesser offseason transactions. Players... Read More

Shohei Ohtani is already the most talked-about player in the baseball world and he doesn't even belong to a Major League team. Not yet, at least. When Giancarlo Stanton is practically an afterthought at the GM meetings, you know you have something big on your hands. The Japanese sensation has dominated headlines lately and is now... Read More

We've all heard about the home runs. A total of 6,105 balls left the yard in 2017 - or avoided outfielders sufficiently for an inside-the-park home run. The previous record of 5,693 home runs was set in 2000 during the peak of the steroid era. This time, juiced balls and mechanical changes seem to be... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. Today I'm bringing you my top 10 catchers - dynasty prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues. Catchers are often a challenging position to find star prospects. It seems the best hitters are the worst defensively and... Read More

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. Just like with the preseason pieces in March, I’m kicking off the review of our RotoBaller staff’s 2017 bold predictions. Let's get to it.   Grading the Predictions... Read More

Reviewing JB's 2017 Bold Predictions

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. As Michael Scott once said, "It takes a big man to admit his mistakes, and I am that big man."    JB's Rowdy (Bold) Predictions for 2017 1. Buster Posey... Read More

Never have I looked forward to writing a season recap so much. I didn't do as well in my fantasy leagues this year, mainly due to lack of time attending to my lineups. Nor did half of these predictions come close to coming true. Sometimes it just takes one thing to make it all worthwhile.... Read More

So, it makes sense that the worst fantasy season of my life coincides with my worst bold predictions. I failed to finish in the top five in any league for the first time, which I guess makes sense considering how heavily I bought into Joc Pederson and Yu Darvish— as you’ll soon find out. I...

Well, my quest for a second straight championship in the RotoBaller Expert's League fell short. Congrats to Max Petrie for pulling away mercilessly in the final few weeks. Luckily I was able to hold off the aggressive pushes from Brad Johnson and Kyle Bishop to finish in second place. For those of you keeping track... Read More

Let's mine through the poop pile and see if we can dig out...I don't know, some undigested corn or something. There's a few good ones here. SHUT UP, I don't see you making any bold predictions. 1. Max Kepler hits 30 bombs AND is a top-30 outfielder.   Ehhhhhh not so much. Kepler fell outside... Read More

What a season, RotoBallers. Fantasy baseball is always a fun, interesting, and long season - filled with injuries, breakout players, and different strategies. It takes stamina and endurance to win the six month marathon, and we're here today to recognize those who pulled it off. With over 200 teams competing to be crowned champ of... Read More

One of the my favorite articles of the year is to write up my bold predictions for what will happen in the upcoming fantasy baseball season. Another one of my favorite articles is looking back on those bold predictions to see how great (terrible) my predictions wound up being. I will tell you right now,... Read More

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. It's my turn to determine if my preseason picks make me a Champ or a Chump. I was terrible this year, so the answer is the latter. Let's... Read More

Way back in March, I wrote a multi-part tutorial on how to use all of the metrics cited in Champ or Chump. I concluded the series by introducing Barrels and Brls/BBE, arguing that the metrics could have been used to predict Chris Carter's 2016 HR title had they been available before the season started. Gary... Read More

    This is it, folks. Our last weekly MLB Closers and Saves Report for the 2017 season. It's been 26 weeks of fantasy baseball, and there have surely been ups and downs as the weeks have gone by. Speaking of ups and downs, bullpens have been a mess this season, maybe more so than... Read More

While holds are even tougher to predict than saves, the players we’ll highlight today include some elite setup men to target off the waiver wire for Week 26, the final week of the fantasy baseball season. The more likely an MLB team is to win, the more likely these pitchers will be eligible to earn the... Read More
