Fantasy Team Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

6

Mike Gianella

The defending National League champs are replete with fantasy assets on both sides of the ball.

At the risk of pummeling home an obvious point, teams that advance to the World Series typically provide plenty of fantasy value across the board. The St. Louis Cardinals were no exception in 2013. Fifteen players provided double-digit Roto value in NL-only last year. Carlos Beltran left to join the New York Yankees, but with Matt Adams and Allen Craig already in the fold, Oscar Taveras waiting in the wings, and a handful of shrewd acquisitions, the Cards won’t miss a beat in 2014, and will once again be a good place for most of your fantasy shopping needs.

The Stash List: The Biogenesis Fallout, or Lack Thereof

10

Bret Sayre

Bret reviews the few players who could see their fantasy values rise as a result of the Biogenesis suspensions, and then unveils his updated top 20.

I saw a question posed on Twitter a couple of hours before Major League Baseball announced the Biogenesis suspensions asking why there hadn’t been any content on the players likely to benefit from the playing time being left behind by Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, and the like. And the easy answer is that there’s just nothing really exciting to say about the players standing behind them, but we’re going to talk about it anyway. Things might have been different were Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon been handed suspensions, as they each had interesting players waiting in the wings, but alas, that is not the case. At least Melky was kind enough to go on the disabled list anyway.

For something as long and drawn out as this Biogenesis saga has been, you’d think there would at least be a little excitement for fantasy purposes on the back end. Maybe a young prospect with some impact potential would get a call up. Maybe a bench player with some power potential would see additional at-bats. Instead what we’re left with are a ragtag group of hitters who are uninspiring at best. Here are the three biggest names to get suspended on Monday and who’s most likely to take those at bats:
