Nationals Leading in the AJ Burnett Sweepstakes

The Washington Nationals have a great core of talented pitchers that might equate to the best pitching staff in the league.  A rotation including Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Gio Gonzalez, and Doug Fister is almost guaranteed to be dominant.  According to multiple sources, they might be looking to add yet another arm.

Projecting Josh Hamilton’s Fantasy Value in 2014

Last year, I drafted Josh Hamilton in the third round of my fantasy baseball draft.  I thought I had gotten good value with the selection, as Hamilton was coming off a stellar season in which he hit .285 with 43 home runs and 128 RBIs.  He had also just signed a lucrative contract to play for the Angels, and would be hitting behind Albert Pujols and in front of Mark Trumbo.  He would also have Mike Trout getting on base for increased...

The A’s continued their busy off-season today by signing Sam Fuld to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. The deal is worth $800,000 if he is added to the 40 man roster.

Top 10: Center Field Edition

Center Field is probably one of the deeper positions in baseball, and this is the hardest position I’ve had to rank yet, so without further adieu, here we go. Note: Shin-Soo Choo and Brett Gardner will be corner outfielders in 2014 and will not be on my list. 1. Mike Trout – Los Angeles Angels If you could build the ideal baseball player, Mike Trout is it.  He has 30+ homer power, has an amazing eye, hits for great...

Top 10: First Base Edition

Here I continue my top 10 series with first baseman.  Chicks dig the long ball, so chicks must love first basemen.  These guys are usually powerful run producers in the middle of the lineup.  Here we go.   1. Miguel Cabrera – Detroit Tigers The two time defending AL MVP is making the move back to first base this season.  Due to Prince Fielder being dealt to Texas, Miggy gets to move back to his natural position in 2014....
