Wondering what the ‘experts’ think about Colby Lewis – aka the biggest American phenom to appreciate its value in Japan since Cecil Fielder and Cheap Trick? Should you expect a Cecil Fielder-sized ERA or will he surrender few enough runs and baserunners that you’ll want to want him?Please, blog, may I have some more?
It must be remotely close to a new fantasy baseball season as the Fantasy Roundtable returns from a couple months of dormancy.
This week’s Fantasy Roundtable is being hosted by the roundtable creators over at FantasyPros911 – the only fantasy baseball blog that my namelganger Rudy Giuliani reads.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Rudy’s off on some far away exotic island (Manhattan) and asked me to wave my wand on the fantasy baseball roundtable. This week it’s hosted by Patrick Cain of the Albany Times Union. (I think the sun only comes in from the west in Albany, hence his eyeblack under only one eye.) This week’s question:
Second Half Sleepers that should be available in more than 50% of mixed leagues. Here’s the answers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week’s Fantasy Roundtable is hosted by Adam Ronis at Strong Island’s most awesome paper - Newsday.com.
THE TOPIC: Where would you draft David Wright in a mid-season league and why?
I veered toward the most bearish in the group – saying I’d take him somewhere in picks 20-30. Grey put him at #14 in his midseason fantasy baseball rankings. Click on the link above to see what some other Fantasy Bloggers thought…Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week’s Fantasy Roundtable is hosted by phonetically fetishy friends at Fantasy Phenoms.

This week’s Fantasy Roundtable is hosted by Big Jon Williams over at Advanced Fantasy Baseball.
THE TOPIC: You find yourself in 7th place in a 15 team mixed 5×5 league. You’ve just lost your best hitter to injury and your pitching isn’t that good. If you really want to win, what do you do?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Razzball is hosting the Fantasy Roundtable this week. Very stressful. Had to clean up my bachelor pad. Was busy baking all day. One guy only drinks decaf because caffeine keeps him up all night. Two guys had torn hip labrums and needed to be Bela Karolyied up the 4 flights of stairs to my apartment. Good times. So here was the question for the group:
What category(ies) do you think about least when drafting and managing your fantasy roster?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Early regrets…I had a few…
The Fantasy Roundtable this week is hosted by Tim Dierkes of RotoAuthority who I remain friendly with despite refusing my suggestion to add an animated Cartman to his site that says “Respect RotoAuthoritah“. His question:
Here on April 30th, what is your single biggest fantasy baseball regret of the year?Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve got a double Roundtable post this afternoon as I got too busy with life and whatnot to post the one from last week.
The first one was hosted by Patrick Cain of the Albany Times-Union Fantasy Baseball section. His advantageous location in the heart of New York State politics makes his blog the must read for the Governor and his staff (as in his staff must read it to him – the NY Guvn’r is blind, people! If he can’t see prostitutes, we New Yorkers assume he’s much less likely to frequent them. Wonder if he does the Ray Charles thing and feels their wrists to know if they’re skinny or not?). Anyway, here’s the link and the question:
What cold starts should I be reading into…and why?Please, blog, may I have some more?
