Fantasy Fool's Gold: American League Starting Pitchers

0

Ben Carsley

These four minor-league arms have intriguing numbers, but their future fantasy value is limited.

On Wednesday, esteemed colleague and scholarly gentleman Craig Goldstein continued our Fantasy Fool’s Gold series with our first look at pitchers, covering some starters in the senior circuit.

Today, I pick up this mantle with four players from the American League who, despite your best intentions, will disappoint you if you rely on them.

Take a deep breath before assuming your favorite team's pick today is a future star.

Unless you live under a rock, and no offense to those living under a rock, you know the draft takes places tonight. The draft creates a lot of excitement, but it's important to be realistic as well about the player that gets added to your favorite. Whomever your favorite team takes, it's not time to start inserting him into future lineups. The attrition rate for top picks has improved dramatically, yet remains brutal. So for a little dose of reality here are the top five hitters and pitchers for each slot. Of the 47 players taken in draft history, this is the cream of the crop, and it can be a bit of an eye-opener. A big note of thanks to Bradley Ankrom for doing the leg work here.

Things to do in Delaware: scout Royals and Orioles pitching prospects.

“Baseball is my stereo, and I get hit looking for a miss, and I never thought it would come to this.” –A guy who dresses up like Elvis Costello

I arrived in Delaware on Saturday afternoon, and I stuffed all the stories and observations from my journey into the parts of my mind that are tasked with storing rambling tales from the road. For example: I saw a girl on the Greyhound bus with plastic pink shoes and a sundress made from a shiny synthetic fabric that looked like plastic, and I think I was in love with her because she looked so imaginary and plastic and dreamlike, and she blew exaggerated bubbles with her gum and her lips were painted with a waxy, pink gloss, which only added to the illusion and excitement of the situation.

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.

On the Beat: Friday Update

16

John Perrotto

The Mets are rolling with the help of many different contributors, along with other notes from around the major leagues.

On the day of the first exhibition game of spring training, David Wright pronounced it time for the Mets to finally forget a disastrous 2009. As the third baseman stood at his locker in the clubhouse at the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida, he also predicted better days in 2010.

Johan versus Livan in Citi Field in a grudge match of sorts.

Unhappy chance puts me in New York now instead of Chicago tomorrow to see the Cubs' home opener, but the usual formula for what to do with lemons applies in the Empire State as much as the Land of Lincoln. Today's game in Flushing gave me a shot to see Citi Field for the first time, with a chance to see Johan Santana on the mound, Jim Riggleman steer a patchwork roster, and Jose Reyes play in his second game since his activation from the DL.

Fantasy Focus: Third Base Rankings Review

29

Marc Normandin

In a process to provide answers, there's some heat to be taken for the pre-season hot corner rankings.

It's time to see where I went right and wrong with my fantasy rankings for third base. These rankings were made during spring training, and this particular series of pieces is meant to review those rankings so we can see what there is to learn from both the process and the results-my hope is that next season's rankings will improve through this, since I'm forced to face the music in a way.
