Free Agent Watch: American League, Week Two

15

Paul Singman

Two Red Sox position players could have sneaky value, and the door may not be closed on Jose Valverde just yet.

Each week, two members of the BP fantasy team will provide a rundown of potentially valuable players that are available as free agents in most fantasy formats across the major platforms. We will run one column on the National League and one on the American League each week, with Josh Shepardson tackling the senior circuit on Mondays and Paul Singman focusing on the junior circuit on Tuesdays.

Overthinking It: A Tribe's Hard Quest

7

Ben Lindbergh

Last year's Indians surprised everyone with a first-place start, then collapsed. This year's Indians have also surprised everyone with a first-place start. What's next?

​Note: this article was originally published on Thursday afternoon, so stats are as of Thursday morning. Last night, the Indians defeated Detroit and Justin Verlander (in their 10th one-run victory of the season), further solidifying their hold on the AL Central.

“I felt last year at this point we had played our best baseball. You couldn’t play any better than the way we played the first 45 games. Unfortunately, we had some guys go down. But I still don’t think we have played our best baseball [this year].”—Manny Acta

Resident Fantasy Genius: BP Fantasy End of Season Awards

Derek Carty

With the regular season complete, we take a look at the BP fantasy crew's votes for a variety of awards.

With the fantasy season coming to a close this past week, each member of the BP Fantasy team cast their votes for a variety of categories. Today, I'm here to hand out the theoretical hardware. 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.

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 8/9/11

4

Michael Street

After a strong week from most of his Value Picks, Michael makes a few tweaks and offers plenty of post-September-callup analysis in Playing Pepper.

Nearly every VP performed well enough to remain this week, and there’s plenty of other waiver wire value to be found, although September callus—a while unlikely to be valuable in and of themselves—can affect those waiver-wire decisions. I’ll look at those angles, along with other potential VPs, in a heaping helping of Playing Pepper.

The tater trots for September 7: Victor Martinez outpaces everyone, an interesting landing spot for Will Venable.

A few big home runs, a few ridiculously slow trots, and a few other memorable home runs (including a first-career home run and a pitcher home run) made Wednesday night a much more interesting night than it had any right to be.

Fantasy Beat: Value Picks at First, Third and DH

Michael Street

As the talent pool dries up, Michael digs even deeper to uncover new Value Picks

Despite what Eliot says, May is actually the cruelest month for fantasy baseball. Positions have calcified, so the waiver wire is generally empty of starters, and it’s too early to expect promising prospects to be called up (impatient teams with deep farm systems notwithstanding). On top of that, players with early hot starts are gone, leaving plenty of backups or poorly performing starters. What’s an owner to do?

With graduations just around the bend, Michael hands diplomas to two Value Picks while welcoming three new VP freshmen.

Amid pomp and circumstance that has nothing to do with overdressed, self-important people named William and Kate, we graduate VP alumni who made the grade, while sending out acceptance letters to several others.

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Outfield

Rob McQuown

Rob McQuown examines the Value Pick outfielders.

Jose Guillen is Surging – Why? As anyone who's played fantasy realizes, a huge part of winning is not only knowing how much players are going to produce, but also how highly valued they might be by others. I own Jose Guillen on my ill-fated FP911 Expert League team. Here's the latest writeup, for people in need of a laugh – “I wasn't prepared, so I drafted Gerald Laird”... that rhyme more-or-less summarizes my season, though I did avoid picking up Mariners Milton Bradley, Chone Figgins, Ian Snell, et al - not that anyone could have predicted their declines in 2010. But, honestly, I hadn't paid much attention to Guillen as a potential Value Pick. So, I was surprised to see that he's still owned in about 50% of leagues, even in the shallower formats available. Sure, before 2010, his Weighted-means PECOTA came out at a useful .285/.333/.464 rate, despite playing in KC. And he's theoretically moving to the easier league. But consider his rate stats by year:

2006: .216/.276/.398

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Outfield

Rob McQuown

Rob happily graduates a couple longstanding Value Picks, lets Logan run, and is able to add Cain - with analysis of why and what to expect from all the value picks.

Pomp and Circumstance: The list was overloaded last week, with the expectation that several names would be removed this time around. With that in mind, two of these outfielders have enough credits for graduation: Jose Tabata and Tyler Colvin. Tabata is hitting .310 with 12 SB, and people are slowly realizing that he can help a fantasy team. Tyler Colvin had a terrible week, yet his continued power assault makes him quite valuable. He may knock an odd home run against Manny Parra here and there, but fantasy owners will be happier if they just bench him against lefty pitching in daily-move leagues.

Bonus coverage: Recent alumnus Drew Stubbs may be losing playing time, but he has hit the Cubs well this year, going .311/.326/.733 with five (5) home runs and three (3) stolen bases in the ten games he's started. For owners who like to make a lot of moves, it's something to consider August 27-29, when the Reds face the Cubs again
