K-Rod wasn’t the top closer according to our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater and he’s not the number one closer according to our 2009 Fantasy Baseball Projections — it’s called Point Shares, ya’ll! The title of top closer goes to Mariano Rivera and Jonathan Papelbon, respectively.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Can you feel the fantasy repercussions of the Ramon Hernandez trade? Yeah, a tremor. Thanks, random italicized voice. No, don’t you see, this has so little to do with Ramon Hernandez being traded. It does? Yes! It has everything to do with Matt Wieters now having an opportunity to start the 2009 season in Baltimore.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is the third post I’ve done on what I’m expecting for Votto in 2009, the last was in the Pedroia fantasy keeper post. Can you tell I’m excited about Votto for 2009? Right now, I see him listed anywhere from 13th to 18th on preseason rankings lists for 1st basemen.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Since that post was mostly just listing players and their eligibility for 2009, I figured I’d do a companion piece to highlight the guys that have a boost in value because of multiple position eligibility.Please, blog, may I have some more?
With our 2009 fantasy baseball rankings a sneeze and a “Bless you,” away, I’ve decided to look at the guys who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2009 fantasy baseball season. This was an arduous (<–Word of the Day!) task, but I thought it might come in handy for the 2009 fantasy baseball drafts you’ll be doing.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Who’s a 2009 NL Rookie of Year candidate? Who’s a 22-year-old Phillies rookie who should be owned in keeper leagues already? Who won The Pickup Artist and how? Wait, that last one was off topic, but to answer, Carlos Carrasco, Carlos Carrasco, Simeon with negs and DHV spiking.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Most of the rookie nookie reacharounds I’ve given out so far have been for hitters. But that doesn’t mean all 2009 fantasy baseball rookies will be hitters. Right, David Price? So today there’s Dodgers rookie pitcher, James McDonald, who is in no way related to the smooth-as-a-Mah-Jong-tile, Michael McDonald.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Andrew McCutchen has been compared to a young Barry Bonds. Not because he takes steroids and kicks puppies. He’s getting the comparisons because McCutchen is toolsy. Hey, Grey, my friend works at Home Depot and we call him Toolsy. Good to know, random italicized voice.Please, blog, may I have some more?
