Interleague Report: Week One

5

Jeff Quinton

In the debut edition, Jeff looks at the DH options of the NL clubs who will visit AL parks and the lineup changes for AL clubs losing the DH.

I am excited to introduce our weekly fantasy baseball Interleague Report. With interleague play now being year-round, we can benefit from keeping tabs on teams that have played or will be playing games in opposing leagues. The plan is to give you helpful info whether it relates to daily or weekly lineups, waiver or FAAB pickups, or changes in positional eligibility. The Interleague Report will cover last week, this week, and the following week.

Fantasy Team Preview: Chicago White Sox

0

Mike Gianella and Craig Goldstein

The Pale Hose might not contend in 2014, but that doesn't mean they won't have useful fantasy contributors.

When I think of the White Sox fantasy landscape, I tend to think more of The Badlands than I do the Fertile Crescent (Mesopotamia, children). Fear not though; there’s reason for hope on the South Side. Thanks mainly to Cuban import Jose Dariel Abreu, the Pale Hose have a little extra thump, and could see even more added if Paul Konerko returns. Free agency could well play a part in this too, as some have hinted that Abreu isn’t the only big-ticket item that Chicago will buy, but until we know how that shakes out, this is what the team looks like:

Overthinking It: The Latest Attempts to Beat the Shift

5

Ben Lindbergh

Adam Dunn, David Ortiz, and others are doing their best to make defenders abandon the ever-more-popular over-shift.

A few minutes into the bottom of the first inning of Sunday night’s game between the Red Sox and Yankees, a Dustin Pedroia groundout and a Daniel Nava double brought up David Ortiz.

“He’s made a concerted effort to hit the ball the other way a lot more this season, that’s why the average is so high,” said ESPN’s Dan Shulman. Before he could finish the sentence, Ortiz grounded a single to left. “And there he goes,” Shulman said.

What You Need to Know: Striking from Second Place

0

Daniel Rathman

The Rangers and Indians earn dramatic walk-off wins.

The Monday Takeaway
The Rangers left Cleveland on Sunday afternoon dogged by a four-game losing streak. The Indians, riding a four-game winning streak, stayed at home and welcomed the White Sox. Both teams emerged victorious in their final at-bats last night. These are their stories.

Ron Washington’s team was 2-8 since the All-Star break, 8-15 in July, and had not won a series against a team other than the Astros since the end of June. One of the Rangers’ two post-break victories came in Matt Garza’s debut with the club, a 3-1 win over the Yankees last Wednesday. They had not won since.

What You Need to Know: Fearing Jose Fernandez

1

Daniel Rathman

The Marlins have the worst record in the National League, but they have the arms to play spoiler down the stretch.

The Weekend Takeaway
From the beginning of the 1916 season through Saturday, only three pitchers had struck out 13 or more batters in a start while walking none before reaching the current legal drinking age: Gary Nolan, Kerry Wood, and Dwight Gooden, who did it twice. Now that club has a fourth member: Jose Fernandez, who will have something to celebrate when he turns 21 on Wednesday, and who opposing manager Clint Hurdle compared to Gooden after the game.

The 14th-overall pick in the 2011 draft, Fernandez opened eyes when he fanned eight Mets over five innings in his major-league debut and then blanked the Phillies through six two-hit innings in his second trip to a big-league mound. A couple of hiccups in late April and another in Tampa Bay on May 27, combined with the Marlins’ hopeless entrapment in the National League East cellar, served to take Fernandez off of most fans’ radars. But Sunday’s dominant outing, in which he outgunned the pitcher taken first overall in his draft class, should restore Fernandez’s place on the stage.

Fantasy Freestyle: Not Dunn Yet

3

Jason Collette

After a dismal first two months, Adam Dunn righted his ship with a strong June, and he could be a fantasy asset the rest of the way.

As June became July yesterday, Adam Dunn’s numbers looked rather familiar. His batting average was once again below the Mendoza line, at .198, and he had 21 home runs through his first 312 plate appearances. A bit encouraging is that he had only struck out 95 times, putting him on pace to strike out about 50 fewer times than his league-leading 222 last season. He is also on a decent pace to hit 40 home runs for the seventh time in his career.

The move from the National League to U.S. Cellular Field was supposed to be one that would likely help Dunn’s offensive numbers, yet he has just a .187/.313/.401 slash line in 1,457 plate appearances on the South Side of Chicago. Quietly, as the White Sox continue to have a disappointing season, Dunn had his best June ever and his best single month since changing leagues. Dunn was so red-hot in June that his MLB.com player card has over 50 highlights of him either driving in runs or crossing the plate in June alone!

Resident Fantasy Genius: The Ones We Got Right

4

Derek Carty

Derek begins reviewing his pre-season predictions, starting with the ones that made him (and you) look good.

At the end of every season, I find it useful to go back and examine the predictions I made.  What did I get right, and where did I go wrong?  Today I’m going to look at some of my biggest hits. For each player, I’ve listed his mixed and AL/NL-only auction value in Tout Wars and LABR (only Tout has a mixed auction, but AL/NL-only values are an average of Tout and LABR) as well as his actual value for the 2012 season according to Last Player Picked. And of course, in the interest of fairness, I will be going through the same exercise for my worst predictions too.  Also take note that I’ve excluded most of the “value picks” from my preseason tier articles, as they’ll get their own review article.

Mixed:
$9/$32
AL-only: $17.5/$35

This is a lot of interesting information about Adam Dunn. That's what this is.

I would like to alert you to the presence in the American League of a player you might not have heard of. He's a little bit under the radar, this guy. Baseball hipsters love him, though after this piece takes him wide, they'll probably abandon his cause because of overexposure.

You: Yo I was just reading abou--
Hipster: Yeah, yeah, Adam Dunn, blah blah. What effing ever.1

It raises a good question, though. *Has* a team tried to score 14 runs every game and go 124-1?
