You may have noticed a pattern thus far with the fantasy baseball rookie posts, they’re mostly hitters. This is done on purpose. Hitters give you nothing and it’s a 3-for-50 line and you move on. A pitcher gives you nothing in the way of 5 IP, 10 ER and a 2.00 WHIP line and you wanna crawl into a ball in the corner of your shower and cry like you just figured out Einhorn is Finkle and Finkle is Einhorn.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Check out the catcher pool as it deepens. First, Wieters. Then Jesus Montero (I don’t plan on covering him.

Last year, Brandon Allen treaded his six-two, two-hundred and thirty-five pound man-gams through Double- and Triple-A before hitting the majors in August. And by hitting the majors, I don’t mean hitting in the majors. As Lil Jon once said in grade school, I come correct with my prepositions, okaaaay!!!!!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last year, Desmond Jennings won the Rays Minor League Player of the Year honors. In Double and Triple-A in 2009, Desmond Jennings had a slash line of .305/.391/.457 while chucking in 11 homers. You might be thinking it was a slow year in the Rays organization.Please, blog, may I have some more?
First, I looked for anecdotal evidence on Mr. Stanton. I found in 2007 the Red Sox offered to trade Manny to the Marlins, while paying his salary, for Mike Stanton. The Marlins obviously refused. Interesting, but the last time Marlins traded a prospect for a big name was exactly never.Please, blog, may I have some more?
