Transaction Analysis: Royals Bank on a Rios Rebound

4

R.J. Anderson, Ben Carsley and Nick Shlain

The Royals add another aging bat, the Marlins hope a move to first keeps Morse healthy, the Rockies add bench depth, the Yankees keep some rotation depth, the Cubs and Orioles build pen depth, and a low-risk, but possibly not-so-high-reward arm, lands in San Diego.

Fantasy Team Preview: Miami Marlins

0

Ben Carsley

It's a new-look squad in the wake of the Winter Meetings, but aside from Mat Latos, the headliners are still the same.

The Miami Marlins are dumb and bad.

This preview piece was slated to run Thursday morning, but, upon news of the Dee Gordon trade, was held back a day in order to be updated. Then, the Marlins went ahead and pulled off the Mat Latos trade, further ruining the good work of the handsome author, who is the protagonist in this story.

There Is No Offseason is a podcast that focuses exclusively on dynasty and long-term keeper formats. We talk major leagues, minor leagues and we never miss an opportunity to take a jab at Craig.

Five to Watch: Fantasy-Relevant Winter Meetings Rumors

1

Ben Carsley

A look at how hypothetical moves would impact players' fantasy stocks if they come to fruition this week.

Generally, when writing on the internet, you want to produce content that is evergreen. You're also encouraged to make arguments based on facts, not rumors or conjecture. And tired tropes like "listicles" or Bill Simmons-esque breakdowns based on arbitrary differentiators are discouraged.

Let's break all the rules tonight.

Fantasy Team Preview: Kansas City Royals

Ben Carsley

The Royals don't have a ton of fantasy awesomeness. There's always Jeremy Guthrie!

2014 was a disappointing year for the Royals, as they lost the Wil Myers trade once and for all.

Five to Watch: More Post-Hype Prospects for 2015

3

Ben Carsley

Part two of a series on erstwhile prospects you shouldn't forget about heading into the coming year.

"There’s a theory I’m partial to that says we need 1,000-1,500 at-bats at the major-league level to know who a hitter really is. Given how early some prospects are being promoted these days, it’s possible we need to be even more lenient. That said, knowing when they’re going to be useful to you is as important as knowing if they’ll be useful. Below are five guys I’d work to keep, given the chance."

I had my people tell Craig Goldstein to write the introduction to this mini-series last week, and that's what he came up with. Unfortunately, it will have to serve. Send any and all complaints to Peter Gammons.
