Welcome to my weekly Free Agent Acquisition Bidding/Budget (FAAB) column where my goal is to have you confidently prepared to acquire the hitters and pitchers off free agency or waivers to make your t...
Every time you look up, it seems likely someone is being removed from a game with some sort of physical malady. As Jeff Mans pointed out in this tweet, the DL was used nearly 700 times last season, an...
I've been getting a lot of questions from folks wanting to move on from Miguel Cabrera and Joey Votto. Two batters, likely headed to the Hall of Fame, are there reasons to suggest that it's time to mo...
Kingery is rolling. Lindor is about ready to return. How is McNeil doing it? Ozuna is mashing homers. Trea Turner's return is up in the air. Boyd has been as on his game as possible in the early going...
Two of the better righties in baseball, Nola and Syndergaard, are struggling in the early going. Kershaw returned from a health issue to look pretty darn sharp. As he returned, another left as Snell h...
These first few weeks have been a bumpy ride for many fantasy owners who invested in early starting pitching but are getting bombarded out the gate. If you used a pick in the first few rounds on Chris...
Arms, arms, arms. Ray Flowers reviews the plight of a bevy of arms in this Ramblings entry. Some of the arms are off to solid starts (Buchholz, Morton, Price, Sabathia, Smith), others are a bit cold (...
I'm gonna to spend some time going through the FAAB bidding in five experts leagues. There were some aggressive bids on players that I think were overspends, and plenty a player added on the cheap tha...

It's time to look at some arms. Buehler still doesn't look quite right. Foltynewicz is closing in on a return to the bigs. Glasnow has been stupendous. Lynn has turned in a couple of solid outings for...
What are the Padres doing with Luis Urias? Is there a plan? What does that mean for his outlook? Altuve is blasting. Buxton is slashing. Chapman is surging. Correa looks healthy. Khris D. is socking. ...
Every week of April can feature words of advice about not panicking, but as I mentioned in last week's column, it's in our nature as fantasy baseball managers. The number of injuries through the first...
Mike Clevinger's back issue will cost him most of the first half. Luis Severino has a new injury, and his first half is also in doubt. Who will step up for the Yankees to fill the void? Clayton Kersha...
Now is the time of year for panic. Did you make a bad draft pick? Is that ascending star someone you missed on? Should you make one or two moves, or perhaps overturn a good deal of your roster? I keep...
I keep getting the same question, over and over. I keep answering the question the same way, over and over, but it still comes. In fact, I answer the same question at this time of year, every year, an...
I'm gonna take a moment to go through the FAAB bidding in five experts leagues. There were some aggressive bids on players that I think were overspends, and plenty a player added on the cheap that cou...

It's time to look at some arms, and the bat of Dansby Swanson. On the hill, Spencer Turnbull, Tyler Mahle, Jordan Lyles and Max Fried starred. At the opposite end of the success train, Eduardo Rodrigu...
It's early, we're just in the second week of the Major League season, but we're already inundated by injuries. Every time you look up, it seems likely someone is being removed from a game with some so...
Matt Boyd has made history in his first two starts of 2019 with massive strikeout totals. Where have those punchouts come from? Can he sustain the pace? Is it worth paying a premium to add the lefty t...
We eat, sleep and breathe. We are human. We've also spent months preparing for our drafts and couldn't wait for the regular season to start. That is why as fantasy players, our inherent reaction to a ...
Trea Turner suffered a broken finger which will shelve him for a good amount of time. Who could you turn to in order to try and stop the tears you're likely dealing with after losing your first round ...
The Yankees suffered another injury, this one a potentially significant blow to Miguel Andujar. The Padres have a plan at catcher an in the outfield - we think. Maybe. Dexter Fowler injuries his foot....
Stanton heads to the DL with a biceps issue. What should we make of Clint Frazier who has been called up? Wendle heads to the DL for the Rays. Who steps up in Florida? Correa is back and playing for t...
