Draft Sleepers
Written by Gregory Paget
 

 

 

Sleep-er (n) Someone or something unpromising or unnoticed that suddenly attains prominence or value.

The key words for our purposes here are unnoticed and value. There’s somewhere between fourteen and ninety-two different reasons why you’ll be playing for your league championship come September. The first is luck. The second is more luck. The third is luckily avoiding injuries to your core group of stars. The fourth is waiver wire luck. The fifth is the ability to look beyond the obvious names that’ll be gone in the first ten rounds on draft day and spotting the sleepers. The sixth might be skill, but I’m pretty sure it too is luck…and so on…

Great Fantasy Sports Team Names
Written by Jordan Bragg
 

Some fantasy baseball leagues are won and lost before the first player is drafted. This is because of an oft-neglected element of fantasy team building that (unless you’re playing for a lot of money) is just as important as home runs, wins and losses. That element is of course, team name selection. Even if you come in last place because you made Antonio Bastardo your first round draft pick, a clever name for your team can still make you the class of your league. When it comes down to it, fantasy baseball is about outsmarting your friends and co-workers (and maybe having fun, I guess) - a clever team name is just one more element to that.

What to do with AROD ?
Written by Randy Marquis
 
Reports from Tampa indicate Alex Rodriguez will attempt to play this season with a torn labrum in his hip. If he opts for surgery, recovery could take from six weeks to four months depending on your source.

For those who have already drafted or are in keeper formats and are the proud owners of A-Rod, all you can do at this stage is rub the nearest rabbit’s foot and hope that he can avoid surgery until after the season. Even at 75%, A-Rod should still compile numbers to keep him among the top players at the third base position.

Best Baseball Movies Ever!
 

While major league players report to Spring Training, it is time for you to do some Spring Training of your own. Catch up on the top 5 must-watch baseball movies.

1. Bull Durham - "Relax, all right? Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.

2. Sandlot - "You are killing me smalls!" -Fat kid who plays catcher 

3. Major League - "Come on Dorn, get in front of the damn ball! Don't give me this "olé" bullshit"

4. A League of Their Own - "Hey cowgirls, see the grass? Don't eat it."

5. Bad News Bears - "You know, in my life I thought I'd never say, "Look at the ass on that second baseman." But look at the ass on that second baseman."

Go Ahead and Call it a Comeback
Written by Jordan Bragg
 

The best fantasy baseball teams are not just made by the easy early selections. It’s easy to say you want Alex Rodriguez and CC Sabathia - everyone does. But the picks that really make your team are the tough choices you make after the easy decisions have been made. There’s a difference between being optimistic, and being ridiculous; so don’t pin your hopes on the big Eric Gagne and Andruw Jones bounceback years. There are some players who suffered injuries or other problems that held them back last year, but should now be behind them. Allow them to be the aces up your sleeve for the later rounds of your draft, when everyone else has run out of ideas.
