First base used to be a spot on the diamond where teams had their big power guys. The position has fallen off offensively in recent years. Although there are still a few gems, the days of waiting on a first baseman for value later in the draft have all but disappeared. Let’s take a look at the top 30 players at first and see if there are a few values still out there.
Continuing the trip around the diamond for our rankings for the 2020 Fantasy Baseball Season, next up is the second basemen. Second base has been a fairly weak position as far as fantasy production goes, with not much depth. The guys at the top have been consistent, but there has not been much after that as you go deeper. You may find some flyers in late rounds that look to break out this year, but if you want more of a guarantee, pick this position earlier. Let’s dive into it.
Any season that ends without hoisting the Commissioner’s Trophy for the New York Yankees is considered a disappoint. So when the Yankees lost to the Astros in six games in the American League Championship Series, there was obviously a lot of disappointment. But that doesn’t mean it was a complete and utter failure of a 2019 season. Let’s delve further into the Yankees’ 2019 season and what to look forward to for 2020.
Game Four of the ALCS was supposed to be last night. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. What the change in schedule does for us though is it gives us a rematch of the Game One starters. It will be cool at Yankee Stadium tonight, and the wind will be blowing out toward the short right-field porch at about 16 mph. There should be a few souvenirs for the fans in those seats tonight.

Many managers will rest players to close out the season if there is nothing left to gain. Bats to focus on will be the Bronx Bombers at Globe Life Stadium in Texas and the Brew Crew and the Rockies at Coors. Let’s party one more time kids (for the Regular Season anyway), let’s go Around the Horn!!
Tonight will be a good night to practice what it will be like once playoff baseball begins in October. Way fewer games to pick from for our starting lineups. All toll just five are on the docket for the evening slate. Pretty straight forward, we have an ace going for Cleveland against the woeful Detroit Tigers. As for bats, three powerhouse offenses should be targeted as they are all in good spots against a left-handed starter. Let’s get right to it and go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
The baseball season is a grind. It’s every single day. We will approach DFS the same way and be winners at the end of the season even if we have our hot streaks and slumps. Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.
