I didn’t even get a chance to write the Billy Butler fantasy sleeper post before I had to bring out the “This Guy vs That Guy” post. Geez, people are really overhyping early this year, huh? (More of a question to myself, you don’t have to answer.) What did Butler do last year that has him screaming up the rankings on so many draft sheets?Please, blog, may I have some more?
From when he was called up in May until he went down with an Achilles injury in mid-September, Nolan Reimold was having a standout rookie campaign. In 358 ABs, he had a line of 49/15/45/.279/8, slashing .279/.365/.466. Some days he hit for power, some days he stole bases, some days he was Fred Savage… Oh, wait, that’s his brother, Judge.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes I overestimate when people will be drafted. November Grey wrote an Alcides Escobar Sleeper post thinking Elvis Andrus sleeperity (sleeperishness? sleeperitude?) was inherent. Then I took a looksie at what people are doing in their mock drafts. As I write this, Andrus is being drafted on average 180.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Julio Borbon can steal 40-plus bases for your 2010 fantasy baseball team. I really shouldn’t even have to say more. And a lot of you probably won’t even read what else I write, especially the readers that found this because they searched Google for “Borbon fantasy” after hallucinations from drinking too much Wild Turkey.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Being the fantasy baseball ‘pert I am — ‘perting ain’t easy — I’ve noticed a trend I think I need to address. There’s a whole lot of what have you done for me lately. If someone takes a dump in their comforter in 2009, people ignore them for 2010.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s do some hypotheticals. It’s the end of your mixed league 2010 fantasy baseball draft and you’re looking to fill in the last spot in your outfield or your utility. You see random fifth wheel candidate that will do exactly what you expect him to do.Please, blog, may I have some more?
