Fantasy Freestyle: The Fantasy Fallout of the Fielder-Kinsler Swap

15

Bret Sayre

Covering all the fantasy angles of a swap whose impact goes well beyond the two traded players.

The fantasy impact of the Prince Fielder-Ian Kinsler trade go well beyond the two players involved, so we’re going to tackle its effects one-by-one and with lots of arrows. Who doesn’t love arrows? Let’s start with the Rangers’ side:

Fantasy Freestyle: Ditch or Play Down the Stretch

8

Mike Gianella

Mike runs down 10 players who have hurt their fantasy owners in recent weeks and explains whether you should ride out their ruts or cut bait.

If you’re in an NL- or AL-only league, your bed is made with all of the big-ticket items on your roster. Starlin Castro might be a disappointment, but at this point he’s your disappointment. You’re not going to cut him for a back-up middle infielder in the free agent pool who is going to get three to five at-bats a week.

In mixed leagues, however, these are the types of players you have to make choices on down the stretch. A number of mixed leaguers have already cut the cord with Castro. However, there are other players who might be worthy of tossing off of your roster, or at least keeping on reserve for the time being. Below are a handful of players who are slumping yet mostly owned in mixed leagues. Should you hang on or try to find better stats elsewhere?

Resident Fantasy Genius: The 2012 Fantasy Fantasy Awards

17

Derek Carty

The fantasy team votes on the year's bests, worsts, and mosts.

With just three days left in the season, each member of the BP Fantasy team took the time to reflect on the year that was, casting their votes for a variety of categories. Today, I'll be handing out the fantasy fantasy hardware (that is, inconsequential awards for a derivative game). After seeing who we thought had the best, worst, and most interesting 2011 seasons, be sure to tell us who you think deserved some recognition in the comments section.

Resident Fantasy Genius: Where to Find Last-Minute Steals, Homers

1

Derek Carty

Playing for one category might make sense this late in the season. Here are some limited players who might nonetheless pick up a point or two for you.

On Thursday, I discussed the importance of managing your categorical needs at this time of year.  By this point in the season, you could actually make a case for dropping certain would-be stars like Adam Dunn or Michael Bourn if their categories are no longer of use to you (and if you’re certain enough they won’t fall into the hands of a competitor that needs what they offer).  On the flip side, players that you might have turned your nose up at earlier in the year may now be incredibly appealing.  Because there is so little time left in the year, a couple of home runs or steals could mean a point or two in the standings.  And if this is the case, the crappy batting average that is likely to come with it probably doesn’t matter to you.  As I always say, it’s all about context.  So today I return with some more one-category wonders that are worth considering for a final championship push.

Home Runs
My Mitch Moreland obsession is far from a secret.  He was one of my preseason sleepers and I drafted him everywhere.  As little love as the guy gets outside of these pages, he has 25-homer power at worst.  Especially if you have the luxury of picking the days you play him (he sits against lefties), he could give you a couple of homers over the final weeks.

Collateral Damage: Offseason Surgery Updates

5

Corey Dawkins and Ben Lindbergh

Catching up with players who are recuperating from their time on the operating table this winter.

Injury news is slow this time of year, but it’s not nonexistent. Almost all of the news nowadays involves surgeries that were either planned or were complete surprises and the result of a new injury.

Tim Hudson, ATL (Low back herniated disc surgery)
Tim Hudson underwent surgery on a herniated disc in his low back on November 28. His back has been bothering him off and on over the last few years but never to the point where he thought he would need surgery. During off-season workouts, his pain started to increase significantly, and not too long afterwards, he underwent surgery, which was most likely a microdiscectomy. This procedure is more successful than earlier operations and requires a much shorter recuperation period. Hudson should be able to resume throwing in about six weeks, which will give him enough time to go through his preseason program and be without limitations at the start of the season.

Kiss'Em Goodbye: Texas Rangers

15

Ben Lindbergh, Kevin Goldstein and ESPN Insider

With or without Wilson, Texas should have enough to make another World Series run

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.

World Series Prospectus: Mixed-Up Confusion

35

Jay Jaffe

A series of questionable moves, bloopers, and blown calls to the bullpen were pertinent in the outcome of Game Five.

Given not only his history but the clinic in bullpen management that Tony La Russa put on in the NLCS, it’s difficult to believe that he could wind up botching a situation as badly as he did in the eighth inning of Monday's Game Five of the World Series. But thanks to a miscommunication between the Cardinals' dugout and their bullpen, a manager who has spent his career chasing the platoon advantage ad nauseam was left with lefty Marc Rzepczynski facing righty Mike Napoli with the bases loaded and one out. Meanwhile, the pitcher he wanted to face the Rangers' best hitter at the game’s pivotal moment wasn't even warmed up. Napoli, whose three-run homer had broken the game open the night before, pounded a double off the right-center field wall, breaking a 2-2 tie and helping the Rangers take a 3-2 lead in the Series.

The Keeper Reaper: First, Third, and DH for 9/7/11

17

Michael Street

Michael looks at possible keepers among the corner infielders on this year's playoff teams

So if a team makes the playoffs, all of its players are keeper studs, right? Wrong. Among the corner infielders, Brandon Inge and Wilson Betemit of the Tigers are barely fungible redraft fantasy options, let alone keepers, and Casey Kotchman’s Bizarro World 2011 season isn’t enough to make him a keeper, either. In between these definite non-keepers and no-brainers like Prince Fielder, Adrian Gonzalez, or Mark Teixeira, quite a few keeper enigmas took the field in the four 2011 Divisional Series.

As Rob McQuown did, I’m taking my dollar values from lastplayerpicked.com, and we’ll all be adding the extra “Super Deep” category (20 teams with 10 keepers) for BP readers in the deepest of leagues. Think of it as an even deeper Keeper Reaper.  If you missed it earlier this week, read the beginning of Rob's column for an introduction to what Keeper Reaper is all about.  Remember, here are how league depths are determined:

The tater trots for May 9: Hunter Pence with an awkward trot, Victor Martinez takes a stroll to the countryside, and Mitch Moreland is unclockable.

I was at Miller Park for the home debut of Zack Greinke last night. It was a fantastic experience, with Greinke mowing down Padres like nobody's business and Rickie Weeks hitting a laser of a home run. But it was the defensive gem of Yuniesky Betancourt that really charged the crowd up. It sure was something (and Rickie Weeks' barehand catch was a huge part of it).
