Fantasy Team Preview: Colorado Rockies

15

Ben Carsley

Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez stand out, but Coors Field can breathe fantasy life into just about anyone's bat.

The Colorado Rockies finished with a 74-88 record in 2013, good for last place in the National League West and tied for the fourth-worst record in the National League, and they didn’t add much talent this offseason. Despite the renowned 1-2 punch of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, it’s not unreasonable to take a cursory look at this organization, shake your head, and move on.

That said, Coors Field plays havoc with value in the fantasy world. Average pitchers become players to avoid. Average hitters become players to target. And anyone with even modest power becomes an automatic add on watch lists in just about every league.

The Stash List: The Final 2013 Installment

7

Bret Sayre

Pedro Strop gets the no. 1 spot in this year's final Stash List, as Bret unveils the top 20 and prepares for his second taste of fatherhood.

This week, the Stash List turns 18, and to celebrate, I’m kicking it out the house and telling it to get a job. Like I mentioned a week ago, the closer we get to the end of the season, the more luck-based and less skill-based stashing becomes. It also becomes less helpful to actually use a roster spot on a stash once the beginning of September rolls around. Those roster spots are generally better used by grabbing pitchers who will have attractive upcoming match-ups and hitters who have pronounced platoon splits that you can sneak into your lineup once or twice a week when the situation permits.

This goes double for those of you in head-to-head leagues, where you may have been stashing a player or two on the off chance that they carried real fantasy value for the playoffs. Since we’re now less than two weeks from the likely start of your playoffs, that potential value needs to be shifted to real value. Once the bell rings in that first playoff match-up, it’s all hands on deck every week. And that goes for anyone who is not currently on an active roster. The worst thing you can do is become too confident in your team and look ahead to the semi-finals or finals.

Derek Carty

Two talented young Diamondbacks starters with different degrees of upside join the group.

Your usual host, Paul Sporer, is away this week crossing things off his bucket list.  Things like meeting Robert Pattinson, teaching tortoises how to french kiss, making snow angels in horse manure, and trying to figure out why people find Curb Your Enthusiasm funny… or, you know, doing normal, work-related stuff.  He wasn’t very specific…  In any case, I’ll be filling in for him today with VP and tomorrow with Weekly Planner.  Here goes…

This week's SP Keeper Reaper is composed entirely of reader requests

Thanks to the positive response in the comments last week, this is an all-request edition of Keeper Reapers, and I actually couldn’t even get to everyone that was brought up. I’ll save those for next week, and feel free to toss out some more names.

The 2006 draft has served as a major talent influx for the top forces in the NL West.

I'd wanted to write about Clayton Kershaw because I haven't discussed him in as much detail as his season merits, but finding a fresh angle proved to be difficult. Improved control? Done. Comparisons to Sandy Koufax? Done. A thousand other things? Done.
