Free Agent Watch and A Few Gut Feelings
 
Kyle Seager, (3B,2B SEA) – Second baseman turned third baseman, Seager was recently called up to replace Chone Figgins at third base.
In 321 at bats so far this season in the minors, Seager maintained a stellar average of .336 with six homers, but his 29 doubles show his potential to grow into some power.
Speaking of Figgins, don’t be surprised when you see this guy get swooped up by a team...

Thanks to my boys over at Razzball.com, I now understand why the Tampa Bay Rays haven’t brought up Desmond Jennings.
 “The only thing in the way of Desmond Jennings, is not Sam Fuld or Ruggiano, it’s the Rays avoidance having him acquire Super-Two status; such status is acquired if a player receives more than 128 to 140 days of servic...

If you were snoozing and missed your shot at Anthony Rizzo, don’t fret, there will be plenty more where that came from. In the next several weeks, you are going to have rookie call-ups coming at you from all directions. I appreciate saber-metrics as much as the next guy….but jeeezzz…
The stat masters will tell you their BABIP, their park advantages or d...

Neftali Feliz is pitching injured
    It is time to become somewhat concerned about the health of Neftali Feliz. The back-to-back blown saves may frustrate fantasy owners, but could happen to even the most reliable closer.
Feliz was sent to the 15-day DL a little less than a month ago after it took him 31 pitches to get out of the ninth inning. Although he didn’t allow a hit or a run, he showed a lack of comma...

All of you stubborn Lance Berkman owners have one more chance to take advantage of his trade value before it is too late.
 I mentioned last week that Berkman’s trade value had reached it’s peak, you didn’t listen as he plummeted into an 0 for 15 slump. You are lucky he came back to life and whacked a homer before anyone noticed. SELL IT or regret it.
Buy now on Ubaldo Jimenez ...

Fantasy Values

Josh Collmenter (SP-ARZ) Threw six shutout innings against the Dodgers last night. This guy grew up throwing tomahawks, and can really freak a batter out with his unusual delivery. He has only pitched 20 major league innings so far, all but 6 from the bullpen, but has given up only two earned runs while walking one. Who knows how well h...

The Time to Act is Now
   At this point of the season we have seen enough baseball to start making decisions about how well, or how horrible, our fantasy players are. The decision on how long we hold onto a player is pretty rough. Murphy’s Law tells us that the same day we gave up on a guy, he starts hitting like crazy.
On the other hand, wait too long and you won’t even be able to pawn the guy off in a ...

Last Chance Fantasy Batters
For those of you still contending in your fantasy baseball leagues, here are some batters you may want to pick up in a last ditch effort to win some cash in 2010.
Homeruns
Dan Johnson (1B TB) In only 22 at bats, Johnson has hit three homers, earned four runs and drove in seven. He seems to be getting every day at bats now for the Rays with 21 at bats in the last seven days. He should be a good so...

Fantasy Football Draft Strategy
It is a good idea to enter your fantasy draft with a strategy. It is important that you develop your strategy based on the league settings. Do not assume that all leagues are standard because they are not. Once you understand the rules and settings look at the different ways to accumulate, or lose, points.
In my 20 team dynasty baseball league we are required to keep four relief pitchers active at...
