Fantasy Beat: Fantasy Chat Accountability

4

Jason Collette

Jason looks back on 2011 chat answers and how his advice panned out

Yesterday, Jason Parks ran a piece entitled Chat Accountability where he went back and revisited advice he had given in earlier chats. I love this concept because as writers, what we spat forth in a chat should be praised as well as panned. We are advising with the information at hand at the time, and that kind of analysis is tougher than results-based analysis because you are advising based on the potential rather than the actual.

Prospectus Q&A: Will Rhymes

2

David Laurila

The Tigers rookie discusses getting to his road to the majors and succeeding despite his size.

When Will Rhymes made his big-league debut this summer, it represented a win for the underdog—the undersized underdog. The Tigers rookie is 5-foot-9 and 150 pounds, and he came into professional baseball as a senior sign who was drafted in the 27th round. He proceeded to hit well in the minor leagues, topping the .300 mark three times in six years, but he was never all that highly regarded as a prospect.

Under The Knife: Hitting Pause

9

Will Carroll

The saga of Jacoby Ellsbury continues, plus updates on Peavy, Greinke, and more heading into the All-Star break.

Jacoby Ellsbury (fractured ribs, TBD)
Ellsbury's notes got as much news as his ribs over the weekend. As he went through his very awkward press conference, Ellsbury showed that he was way off the pages of the Red Sox' songbook. Ellsbury took the time to break down the timeline of his fractured ribs and associated injuries, making sure that it was clear along the way that he thought the Red Sox had dropped the ball. Shortly after, Kevin Youkilis put on record what many other Red Sox are apparently thinking-that Ellsbury was getting the "bad teammate" vibe for not staying with the team and for speaking against the Red Sox medical staff. Ellsbury said many things, but the timeline for his return to the Sox still remains unclear. The strained lat and intracostal that he disclosed give us nothing more to go on. For now, he'll head down to the spring training facility in Ft. Myers. This remains a pain tolerance issue, and several weeks away from the team don't seem to have cleared that up. One source wondered if Ellsbury would be back in time for the Sox to put him up for trade, saying, "he's got to go". This will definitely be a test for the field staff and 'clubhouse leadership' as much as the medical staff.

Fantasy Beat: Weekly Planner #10

6

Craig Brown

A certain rookie makes his debut and has two starts this week.

Interleague returns next week for another round, but the big story will be some dude named Strasburg who will pick up a pair of starts, first at home against the Pirates and then on the road in Cleveland.  You think the Nationals know what they’re doing?  He couldn’t draw a better pair of teams out of the chute.  I hope you decided to take a flier on Strasburg in a late round of your draft a couple of months ago.  The dividends are on their way.  Make sure you start him now, because those inning limits will push him to the sidelines later in the season.

OK, at this point, you know the drill.  The week starts on Monday and the starters are provided by Heater Magazine and are subject to change.  The asterisk next to a starter means they’re owned in fewer than 50% of Yahoo or ESPN leagues.  Hopefully, if you’re interested, they’ll be available.  You can download a handy pdf of all starters and match-ups here.

The Rays are being carried by their red-hot starting rotation, along with other major-league notes.

James Shields pondered the questions for a moment, then boomeranged it right back at the person making the query.

Bill Baer

After the first month, which starting pitchers can provide value to your fantasy team?

(Remember: Green indicates the player has been added to the list; Yellow indicates the player has been removed; and White indicates the player is remaining on the list.)

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Starting Pitchers

Bill Baer

Which starting pitchers may help push your fantasy baseball roster over the top?

Over the last two weeks, I have detailed some pitchers who I think would provide most fantasy baseball players with some decent value. As we go further and further into the season, the list will be constantly updated as players rise and fall in value and rise and fall in fantasy ownership. You may wonder why some patently good pitchers were omitted from the list. That is because you will not need me to beat the "Pick up Brad Penny" drum throughout the season when he will end up being owned by everybody eventually anyway. I will be identifying the less obvious value picks.

Still a good value:

Which AL starting pitchers are being passed over in fantasy leagues nationwide?

Last week, we tackled a few National League pitchers that should be given more attention. This week, we will look at American League hurlers.
