My Model Portfolio: The Rare "Spend More on Offense" Strategy

3

Ben Carsley

Ben devotes more than 70 percent of his $260 budget to bats.

On Friday, March 21, Mike Gianella released Version Four of his mixed league Bid Limits, which spurred an idea from Bret Sayre called Model Portfolios, wherein the fantasy staff (and anyone else on the BP roster who wants to participate) will create their own team within the confines of a standard 23-man, $260 budget. The roster being constructed includes: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OFx5, UTx2, and Px9 along with the following standards issued by Sayre:

Alex Kantecki

David Wright and Jay Bruce anchor Alex's ideal Roto offense, while Felix Hernandez and Madison Bumgarner do the heavy lifting on the mound.

Five to Watch: National League Hitters

6

Mauricio Rubio

The senior-circuit bats might provide nice value on draft day.

Anthony RizzoChicago Cubs
Rizzo’s 2013 season boils down to a lack of singles. He notched 65 extra-base hits and generated a healthy 11 percent walk rate, but those types of things get mitigated in a big way fantasy-wise when you hit .233. His ADP is typically in the 100 range, and I think he can outperform that position this year. He has his issues with left-handed pitchers, but he also posted a .258 BABIP, which I think points to at least a bit of bad luck. If he gets the average in the .260 range, he makes a big jump in value considering the power potential. I think it’s a jump he can make considering the plate discipline and manageable 18.4 percent strikeout rate.

Rizzo is being judged off of what can only be described as a disappointing 2013, and that’s fair. But that assessment also creates an attractive value pick in the middle rounds of drafts.

Fantasy Team Preview: Cincinnati Reds

4

Bret Sayre

Bryan Price's club boasts a three-headed rotation monster, a triple-digit-throwing closer, two lefty sluggers, and the fastest player in the game.

The 2013 season ended in brutal fashion for the Reds, as they lost the National League Wild Card Game to a division rival. The offseason wasn’t much better, as they saw one of their best hitters and most consistent pitchers (even if he is flatly average) leave town. They were replaced by internal options who have good upside, but have yet to prove themselves over the course of a full season. They’ll need to hit the ground running, as anything short of a return to the playoffs will be a disappointment in the Queen City.

What You Need to Know: The Rays Rotation Gets a Boost

5

Daniel Rathman

Alex Cobb returns to rearm the Rays for the stretch run.

The Thursday Takeaway
For a while, it seemed as though the Rays might not miss a beat in the absence of Alex Cobb, their most reliable starting pitcher during the first two-and-a-half months of the regular season, who was struck in the head by a batted ball on June 15. From the following day through July 30, Tampa Bay led the American League with a 2.64 team ERA.

But as the adage goes, you can never have too much pitching. Matt Moore succumbed to elbow soreness after a rough start in the Bronx on July 28. Jeremy Hellickson, who stepped up when Cobb went down, has been shelled to the tune of nine runs in 7 2/3 innings over his first two August starts. And from the trade deadline through August 14, the Rays’ 5.38 club ERA was the second worst in the majors, ahead of only the Angels’, whose efforts on the mound were so brutal that even their beat writers got snarky.

In A Pickle: Slugger Off

9

Jason Wojciechowski

Silver Slugger awards shouldn't be controversial, but Jason finds a gap remains between advanced metrics and voters.

When you do an article search on this site for the phrase "Silver Slugger," you get 57 results, the first of which, by Gregg Pearlman, is apparently the 18th article ever written for Baseball Prospectus and the most recent of which is Geoff Young's piece about the Padres throwing their heft around the N.L. West this offseason. (That's #19056.) Young's Silver Slugger mention came because Jason Marquis won one. Pearlman was writing about Barry Bonds. (Or really about sportswriters' relationship with Bonds. This was October 1997. We were innocent once, and young.)

By contrast, when you search "Gold Glove," you see just a smidge over nine times the results. (The first of which, hilariously, is another Gregg Pearlman article -- this one includes a lamentation of the J.T. Snow trade—which is numbered "1" in our content system.)

The tater trots from the first weekend of playoff baseball.

Wild Card Weekend was wild in a lot of ways (whoever thought the infield fly rule would ever actually be debated?!), but it was seriously lacking in one regard: home runs. In the eight games played this weekend, a total of nine home runs were hit. That's not exactly lighting the world on fire.

Let's get right to the trots. The "Mad Men" cast is calling...

The tater trots for August 14: Nick Swisher watches his big fly, Jay Bruce walks off.

The Tater Trot Tracker will be Melky Cabrera-free today—though that's only because he hasn't hit a home run since August 4. I guess those PEDs weren't doing much, huh? *nudge, nudge*
