What You Need to Know: Chisenhall Messes With Texas

10

Chris Mosch

The Indians third baseman cements his breakout with three homers, plus much more from Monday and previews for Tuesday.

The Monday Takeaway
Lonnie Chisenhall has been teasing a breakout, as he entered Monday’s contest with a .365/.413/.538 slash line in 176 plate appearances this season. But nobody could have expected the show the former first-round pick put on during Cleveland’s 17-7 blowout of the Rangers. When the Indians walked off the field, Chisenhall had accomplished a stat line that no other player in history had ever recorded.

Free Agent Watch: Week Four

6

Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre

If these players are on your league's waiver wire, they might be worth a look, depending on the format in which you play.

Welcome back to our weekly walk through some of the players who may want to keep an extra eye on in your leagues. Mike and I will be tackling this topic on Thursdays again and focusing on a singular hitter and pitcher in four of the more popular formats: shallow mixed, deep mixed, NL-only and AL-only. These are certainly not the only players who are worth pickups, but it gives us a nice opportunity to write about players we have close tabs on in our leagues.

12-TEAM MIXED

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 6/18/12

2

Michael Street

With solid replacement options dwindling, most of Michael’s Value Picks stick around, but several are in their final weeks on the list.

June is a tough month for waiver-wire pickups; all the early bargains are long gone, starting positions have largely solidified, and most of this season’s call-ups haven’t yet begun to arrive. That means even more patience is required from fantasy players, a virtue that paid off for owners of one VP this week and a lesson to those who are ready to drop a talented hitter after a prolonged cold spell. Patience can make for some nail-biting weeks and short-term statistical swoons, but it’s always good to remember the baseball cliché that the season is a marathon, not a sprint.

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 6/12/12

Michael Street

Michael sweeps four VPs off the list while bringing in two Rockies and two hot-hitting first base call-ups.

Being a fantasy owner requires balancing three P’s: production, playing time, and the patience to see if a hitter will improve the former after an increase in the latter. This week, I’m losing my patience with two hitters while sticking by another one who’s about to get more playing time. Owners without my patience can find other options in another set of P’s—the Playing Pepper section—but you can find some fantasy value in any of this week’s players, which is our goal here at Value Picks.

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 6/6/12

7

Michael Street

Godzilla and Lonnie Chisenhall join this week’s Value Picks list, while Michael waves bye-bye to a hot Smoak and a cold Barton.

Fantasy prognostication is not a perfect science, but my Value Picks have been solid, graduating six players in seven weeks, including top performers like Adam LaRoche, Chris Davis, and Will Middlebrooks. Along the way, I’ve made some bad calls too, of course, largely on single-league players like Brad Eldred and Conor Gillaspie. This week features one of both kinds—a promotion and a demotion—along with the usual crop of strong performers available on at least 80 percent of most leagues’ waiver wires.

The Keeper Reaper: First, Third, and DH for 12/09/11

9

Michael Street

Michael looks at a trio of third basemen, traditionally a thin fantasy position, as well as a young first baseman and an aging designated hitter.

Now that the Great Wall of Pujols has finally been breached at the Winter Meetings, the barbarian hordes of remaining free agents will surely begin to come pouring through, sending fantasy owners scrambling to make keeper decisions like so many frightened peasants. Until those signings happen, this issue of Keeper Reaper will catch up on some reader requests and look at one other significant transaction that’s already occurred in the corner infield and designated hitter markets.

As always, the names for each keeper category are linked to PFM’s 2011 dollar-value rankings for players in those leagues. And suggestions for other players you’d like to see covered are always welcome in the comments section.

Kiss'Em Goodbye: Cleveland Indians

13

Steven Goldman, Kevin Goldstein and ESPN Insider

The Indians rolled the dice on Ubaldo Jimenez and must now fill holes for 2012.

Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fadewhether in September (or before), the league division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski, and Kevin Goldstein's farm-system overview.

The Indians summon another prospect to prop up their flagging pennant hopes, the Cardinals recover a pair of walking wounded, the Brewers gamble on Mat Gamel, and the potential next Sam Fuld makes his play with the Pirates.

The Indians' hot start has caused the team to rethink recalling prospects before rosters expand.

There is little argument that the Indians have been the biggest surprise on a team level this year. In many ways, whether one thinks this is real doesn't matter, as having the best record in baseball in early May already changes the team's 2011 outlook significantly. Given only a 3.8 percent chance of reaching the playoffs on Opening Day, Baseball Prospectus' Playoff Odds still see Cleveland as a sub-.500 team from here on out, but the hot start has increased their post-season chances nearly 10-fold, to 37.8 percent heading into Wednesday's action. For you horseracing buffs, they've gone from a 26-to-1 long shot to better than 3-to-1 odds at needing to call the printer about playoff tickets.

Pegging BP's favorites in both leagues, both in the standings and for the major awards.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards  (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting. 

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that has been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.). Next to each of these selections we've listed the total number of ballots, followed by the total number of points, and then the number of first-place votes in parentheses, if any were received.
