Prince Fielder trusted his agent and waited, and waited, and waited. It paid off as the Tigers signed him to the 4th largest deal in the history of baseball. Will he continue to have success in Detroit? At this time of year everyone talks about projections. I'll give my thoughts on why I think number projections are a shell game that no one really has the answer to. I'll also touch on two relatively minor signings – Bartolo Colon to the A's and Wilson Betemit to the Orioles – and tell you which one has the potential to be a more significant move for the 2012 season.
On the other side of the spectrum, here are the guys who came on to your roster and absolutely surprised you and led you to the current first or second place in the standings that you currently sit. Most of these guys were players who weren't even drafted but were the diamonds in the rough in fantasy baseball this season. These are the guys that separate the pretenders from the contenders. Below is a list of my ten favorites and how you can expect them to finish this season and how they will perform going forward in the coming years.
June means prospect time and today was no exception as one of the most intriguing prospects in baseball is coming to the Big Show. Perhaps he won't be the best, but he seems to be the one that fantasy players have been talking about for a long time. We also have good news for once on an injured star, and a slumping star finally parks one in the seats. We have an established pitcher who keeps getting pounded, while we have news on two younger guys who are looking very strong. Don't forget to check out the pitch streamer for Saturday as so far we have had a pretty good record of success. Can you ask for anything more from Rounding The Bases?
Welcome to the start of Week 5 of the fantasy baseball season, and I can't believe we are this deep into the season already. We have the news on two returns from injury of some of the games best young players, one hitter and one pitcher. One will be right away, while the other will be in time for the weekend. Other than that we have news of a young slugger starting to go on a tear, a young catcher giving us a daily double, and a young pitcher who is starting to turn the corner. I tell you which two old Yankees are bound to fall apart, and which player with diarrhea ruined his fantasy owners weekends. If that isn't enough for you, I don't know what is so enjoy today's version of Rounding The Bases.
