Bullpen turnover last year was at an all-time high with two of every three teams making changes in the 9th inning. We're not even to March yet of 2013 and there is already movement with a few teams setup at the end of the game. Will the presumptive Athletics closer be healthy enough to take the ball on Opening Day? Just how historically good is the Rockies' closer? Who is going to get the call for the Blue Jays since both of their options are coming back from shoulder surgery? What the heck are the Astros doing with their bullpen? After breaking down those throwers we'll spend a wee bit of time looking into a couple of outfield situations that could have an impact in how you draft players for your fantasy baseball squad in 2013.
The Blue Jays have decided which man will handle the final frame while the Tigers are still debating how they will handle the 9th inning. Elsewhere there is all kinds of excitement. We've got one of the better hitters of his generation being arrested for a DUI. A righty is ready to sign with the Orioles and why anyone cares is beyond me. A masher in Boston, think overweight, smiley and slow on the base paths, may not be ready to play full-time once the season starts. I'll also touch on a guy who was hurt while wrestling, a hurler who might have been the worst pitcher in baseball last season and I'll share some thoughts on the latest hurler turned hitter.
In fantasy baseball we are all lost when it comes to getting a handle on closers. A microcosm of that lost feeling this season can be found when we look at the White Sox pen as the club from Chicago has zero idea what they are doing. Should you be targeting Sergio Santos if you're looking for some bullpen help (who isn't)? Josh Hamilton made history Tuesday night. Does that mean now is the perfect time to deal him? What about Andre Ethier of the Dodgers – a just how well is he performing this year? Is A.J. Burnett worthy of being on your roster? What about the perpetually struggling Adam Lind? Finally, Cliff Lee is back and ready to dominate hitters once again.
Yes, it's true, the regular season of football is over, so now is the time to start focusing on the diamond. You may barely be over your New Year's Eve hangover, I know the seven Long Island's I pulled back on are still affecting my vision, but it's time to get to breaking down the 2012 fantasy baseball season. To do that I'll take a sweep around the landscape of the game and give some thoughts on the major players that have switched teams this offseason either by trade or through free agent signings. Did you overlook any of the moves due to drinking, lack of interest, or your intense focus on the fantasy football season?
It is the end of another week of fantasy baseball and hopefully this article finds you on the good end of another matchup. Injuries and other factors are going to play a bigger and bigger role as we head down the stretch and every week now becomes more and more important as we get closer to the fantasy playoffs. Only three or four weeks are left until we are playing against the best of the best, and you need to make the moves now to maximize your roster in order to make it the best that it can be. Have you been holding on to that injured guy forever? Is he going to come back in time to help you? These are the decisions that need to be made before it is too late. We will continue to give you the news as it happens to help you win a championship here at Fantasy Alarm with Rounding The Bases.
Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there, and most importantly MINE! Patricia Hallam is the absolute best mother that anyone could ever hope for, and I am forever grateful for all that she has done for me. The woman would do absolutely anything for me, and I will never be able to properly thank her for everything. She did embarrass me tonight on The Fantasy Alarm Show on Sirius/XM Fantasy Sports Radio, but regardless I still love her more than she could ever know I'm glad to have an avenue that I can tell everyone aboute her. As far as baseball is concerned, we had The Captain show signs of life, and a bunch of starters show signs of life. Enjoy the article below and good luck in your upcoming fantasy matchups.
Tuesday nights are typically reserved for sheer boredom and dreading the following work day. This is not the case my friends while baseball is in season. Reminiscent of hanging out in a hotel room with Charlie Sheen the baseball world was filled with drama and intrigue. This typically bland Tuesday revealed three post hype first baseman who are begging for the fantasy world's attention. We also have an ex Red Sox who is making an improbable run to perfection, not to mention a current Sox player who is baffling his owners after imploding once again. As you wade through the plethora of fantasy news you also come across closers grabbing the job by the horns and ones who might have blown a once in a lifetime opportunity. With all that has happened today in the world of baseball, Tuesday's have become a fantasy owners guilty pleasure.
Happy Monday from your friends at Fantasy Alarm! We have some disturbing news from the Bronx about one of our favorite pitchers coming into the 2011 season, and it looks like it might lead to an extended absence. Tonight I will give you two guys that I absolutely can't stand, and one that I think you need to jump on sooner rather than later. I am declaring myself the leader of a new bandwagon, and also we gloat a little about what appears to be a new closer on the South Side of Chicago.
Happy Hump Day to you all as we are in the middle of another fine fantasy week in the regular season. Tonight on the pitching side we see what could be the end of a closer in Chicago, a major concern in Minnesota, one ace rolling again and another one on the mend. The guys with the bats in their hands see a couple of Jeff's favorites going yard, an under the radar shortstop staying hot, and a change of identity in St. Louis. We also run down some of the guys who let the dogs out tonight on both sides of the diamond. We hope that your teams are absolutely crushing the competition, but if you need some help don't forget that you can send an email which is located in the article below. Sit back, pop a cold one, and enjoy the show!
Another day, another rash of news in fantasy baseball. Tonight we have a couple of guys going to the Disabled List, a closer in danger of losing his job and the next guy in line.
