Snake Drafts: Fantasy Baseball Strategy
 

For those of you that have not had much success playing fantasy baseball or are just getting started playing fantasy baseball for the first time, there is different strategy that goes into playing snake drafts (where picks go 1-15 and then back 15-1) or in an auction format.

 
Why Fantasy Baseball Auction Formats
 

Well if you are anything like me as the time for celebrating your fantasy football championships and grumbling over how close you came in other leagues comes to an end you look at the 8 month span before the next football season and realize there is only one thing to be happy about.  It’s time for some Fantasy Baseball.  I’m sure there are plenty of your hard core players that consider this a year round thing and I have nothing against that but for the majority in the fantasy field we know this is more of a sport to sport game.

 
2011 Fantasy Baseball Strategy: Keeper Leagues Draft Format
 

With fantasy baseball drafts only a month or two away, it is time to start preparing for your fantasy baseball keeper league draft. There are several more challenges that go into getting prepared for a keeper league than there is in doing an annual draft that starts new each season.

 
Case: Devil's Reject vs. r kelly's golden club vip
 

League rules stipulate that a roster must be entered properly for teams to earn points for the week. While running a "test" for an upcoming rookie draft, Commissioner (r kelly's golden club vip), had accidently set his line-up in error.  The commissioner argues that at 1am while running the test, he didn't realize that the rosters automatically set.  Devil's Reject (DR) argues that this is not the case and that not only does a warning clearly state a roster is not set properly, but also the rosters sets at 5 min before each game rather than at 1am.

 

Historically in this league the Commissioner has been very strict in upholding league rules and this particular roster rule. In this case, however, the roster slots that were in error were not materialistic to the outcome of the week points.

 

RULING:

Because the roster slots in error were not materialistic to the outcome of the week's points (the roster slots affected were reserve slots), ruling is in favor of the Commissioner. FBA's ruling comes with a warning to the Commissioner, who with this new precident shall amend the roster rule to account for non-factorial roster errors as not to affect a teams weekly points. FBA is giving the Commissioner the benefit of the doubt and suggests in the future that he does the same in his league when league rules are disputed.

The Great Fantasy League Debate
 

When starting your fantasy baseball league there are a lot of rules to debate, but it is important to get these out early so that you have a smooth season. It is a good idea for a fantasy league of managers that have been with each other for a few season to enter into a written constitution. Here is a comprehensive list of items to discuss during preseason to ensure a lot solid league.

 
Say It Ain't So Garrett
Written by Charles Dimino
 

Every year in fantasy you are going to get a dud or two in your draft.  Guys taper off after long careers, have season ending injuries, or just have plain terrible years.  It is just a fact of fantasy baseball life.  For me, however, there is one man that sucked the life out of my (and a whole lot of other people’s) team this year.  His name is Garrett Atkins.
 
Wednesday’s Wheelhouse Jaunt
Written by Shawn Lindsey
 

A day late and a dollar short but I would like to enter the Wheelhouse this week as I watched the Red Sox secure their seventh victory of the season against the Yankees Wednesday night. The sox lead the season series 7-0 with 11 games left between the two teams unless they meet in the playoffs. For some reason the Yankees trotted Chien-Ming Wang out to the mound to continue his 2009 nightmare. Wang was tagged for 4 runs on 6 hits in less than 3 innings of work. But the box score doesn’t tell the whole story. Wang picked up right where AJ Burnett left off Tuesday night. He had a terrible time finding the strike zone with any consistency and was almost chased from the game in the first inning after he walked the bases full. Until the Yankees can sort out their pitching woes the Red Sox are the team to beat in the A.L. East and just imagine how good they could be if David Ortiz comes around.

 
First Impressions, Part I
Written by Randy Marquis
 


If you missed it (and if you're fantasy baseball fanatic, you didn't), the Matt Wieters Era finally began on May 29. His sidekick in hype, David Price, made his season debut just a scant four days earlier. Perhaps inspired by seeing Orioles and Rays fans stampeding to the ticket counter, the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and Chicago White Sox all followed suit by calling up their own franchise saviors, Fernando Martinez, Tommy Hanson and Gordon Beckman seemingly within minutes of each other.
