The Mets' post-season hero changes NL East laundry and John Jaso gives the National League a whirl.

Can the Mets' postseason hero become a fantasy hero for your team?

Narrative breathes life into postseason baseball. Pundits often discuss things like momentum, clutch hitting, and leadership as if they’re crucial to winning the World Series. Granted, these terms are bantered about in the regular season, as well, but not with the same fervor or lasting impact. Right or wrong, teams and players establish legacies during October.

Rubbing Mud: The Qualifying Offer Slows as it Grows

14

Matthew Trueblood

Discussing the eleven players that make up the qualifying offer bubble.

In the excitement and immersion of the playoffs, some extraneous news tidbits can go fly under one’s radar for a while. Things affecting teams not playing on into October do continue to happen during the month; they just get less attention. So it was that Jon Heyman reported, a week ago now, that the qualifying offer (QO, from now on) teams will need to offer free agents hitting the market next month in order to get a draft pick if they sign elsewhere will be $15.8 million. I didn’t catch wind of that news until Thursday afternoon.

It’s interesting information, though, and it makes for some interesting analysis. Consider the progression of the QO since its first winter in 2012:

Fantasy Team Preview: New York Mets

6

Bret Sayre

There aren't many high-end fantasy assets in Queens, but a youth movement could soon change that.

There hasn’t been much to get excited about in Queens over the past five or six seasons—unless you get joy out of watching the franchise greats take the field day in and day out. Of course, there was also the 2012 National League Cy Young Award winner who captured the hearts and minds of those paying attention—though he was traded a couple of months after receiving the hardware. And then, when there is an exciting young attraction worth watching, of course he ends up undergoing Tommy John surgery before the end of his breakout season. However, the roster has been improved through trades and free agency, adding a little extra fantasy relevance to what has been a pretty stale roster in the recent past. Though, as you’ll see from the rest of this preview, high-end talent is still severely lacking.

Projected Lineup

Sporer Report: Under the Radar

0

Paul Sporer

You might have missed these 10 players' fine fantasy campaigns, but don't let them sneak up on you in 2014.

Are you running out the clock on a title run? Fighting off a team or two nipping at your heels to hold onto said title? Are you the nipper? Perhaps your season was over in August when a rash of injuries made that comeback just too far-fetched.

I certainly hope the majority of you are taking part in one of the first three scenarios, but regardless of where you fall on this spectrum, you likely missed some nice seasons in 2013. I don’t just mean those by players who weren’t on your fantasy team. You may have missed them altogether, because they weren’t on a competitor’s team or playing a lot of games against your hometown team. Here is a closer look at 10 solid fantasy seasons from sub-.500 clubs, which may have missed your radar in 2013.

Jameson Taillon's curveball made a scout whom Zach spoke with giddy.

Which player do scouts feel is the best unknown major leaguer?

The question was posed to a dozen front-office types and scouts during the final days of spring training: Who is the best player in baseball that nobody knows about? The winner of the highly informal poll was a bit of a surprise, especially since he entered this season having played in just 43 major-league games. Yet there is a strong feeling that Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie won't be a secret much longer.

Preseason Value Picks: Second, Short, and Catcher for 3/21/12

2

Michael Jong

Buck, Pierzynski, Murphy, and Furcal join the VP ranks this week

Last week, a number of readers pointed out that some of the PECOTA ranks for the Value Picks series did not match up well with the ADP listed based on the name “Value Picks.” It should be noted that we do not necessarily fully agree with PECOTA and do rate players higher or lower depending on their prospects for the 2012 season, including any bonus (or potentially lost) playing time in addition to their skill set. Having said that, this week we bring players whose PECOTA ranks are higher than their respective ADP, with the smallest difference being four ranks.

John Buck | Miami Marlins | C
Mixed: $9 | NL-only: $11 | PECOTA C Rank: 13 | C ADP: 26

Prospectus Preview: NL East 2012 Preseason Preview

28

Derek Carty and Michael Jong

Roundtable discussion of the pressing questions facing the NL East teams as we approach the start of the season

1) After a disappointing sophomore campaign, what can we expect of Jason Heyward going forward?
MJ:
Jason Heyward had an injury-riddled sophomore season in Atlanta, but there is a lot to like about his chances at a rebound campaign in 2012. His offensive line was deflated by a .260 BABIP, but his peripherals were once again stellar. His 11.6 percent walk rate represented a regression from 2010 but cannot be considered poor, and his .162 ISO likewise dropped from the previous year but did not experience a precipitous fall.
