Expert Mock Draft Analysis: Matt’s Team

I’ve been playing fantasy sports (baseball and football) for some time now, but to be perfectly honest, I’ve only been writing about it for a little more than a year. Last night’s 2012 Kick-Off Special Expert Mock Draft was the first expert mock I have participated in, and I learned a valuable lesson:  I don’t […]

Yu and Your Fantasy Team

Yu Darvish has reportedly officially inked a long-term deal with the Texas Rangers. Now that all of the speculation and assumption has come to fruition, we can officially focus on what this means for your fantasy team. There have been a number of pitchers who have come over from Japan to pitch in the major […]

Carlos Quentin Heads to PETCO Cemetery

First and foremost, happy new year to all who stop by FB365 throughout the year! 2012 is going to be a great year, I don’t care what those silly Mayans say! Now, back to our regular programing… The Padres and White Sox came together on a confusing trade today. The Padres, seemingly in rebuild mode, […]

Athletics 2012 5×5 Prospect Rankings

The Athletics have been busy this offseason, but not in a good way if you were a fan expecting them to contend in 2012 (then again, why would you really have been expecting that anyway?). The A’s are short on cash and are in desperate need of a new ballpark, so in the meantime they’re […]

New Years Resolution #1: Lay off the Sauce

People, I have a problem. It’s been going on for the last three years or so, but I have finally taken the first step and admitted guilt. Quite frankly, I should have had this problem taken care of this past year, but I was just too proud to admit that I was wrong. As of […]

Astros 2012 5×5 Prospect Rankings

The Astros don’t exactly have a great system, but there is some upside at the lower levels. In the Astros 5×5 rankings, we’ll look at their best long-term fantasy investments as well as a few players to specifically target for the 2012 season. Astros Top 5 Fantasy Prospects 1. Jonathan Singleton, 1B Josh’s take: Singleton […]

Project Gold Heads West for Gio Gonzalez

The A’s dealt yet another of their young starters from this past season, and received four prospects in return. Two of the four prospects, Brad Peacock and Tom Milone, saw time in the majors, one, Derek Norris, could make his debut as soon as this coming season, and the fourth, A.J. Cole, has a high […]

Early 1st Round ADP Analysis

Christmas is only a few days away, which means that the new year is speedily approaching, which means that fantasy baseball draft prep season is right around the corner! Let’s look at some early ADP data from Mock Draft Central and see what the first round is shaping up to look like as we head toward […]

Reds and Padres Agree to a Blockbuster

It’s not cheap to acquire a cost controlled, and talented young pitcher, but the Reds were willing to pay the price to land Mat Latos. In return for Latos, the Padres received erratic starting pitcher Edinson Volquez, and three of the Reds top 10 prospects according to Baseball America. Those prospects are Yonder Alonso, Yasmani […]

Red Sox and Astros Strike a Deal

The Red Sox lost closer Jonathan Papelbon to the Phillies, and they plan on stretching eighth inning flame thrower Daniel Bard out in spring training. Needless to say, their bullpen is major upheaval. On Wednesday they dealt infielder Jed Lowrie and prospect arm Kyle Weiland to the Astros for late inning reliever Mark Melancon to […]

Gamble on Gamel

Suffice it to say Brewers have a lot going on right now. They are facing the fact that their MVP left fielder is most likely going to miss 50 games in 2012, so they finally made the move to lock up Aramis Ramirez to a three year deal. After that, they traded former third baseman […]

Milwaukee Hot Corner Shuffle

The Brewers have made a whirlwind of activity at the third base position in the last twenty four hours. First, they inked Aramis Ramirez to a three year deal. Then, they flipped incumbent third baseman Casey McGehee to the division rival Pirates for Jose Veras. Ramirez is an above average offensive third baseman with a […]

A’s Deal Cahill

The A’s dealt one of their young starting pitchers, just not the one rumored throughout the winter meetings. Trevor Cahill and Craig Breslow have been dealt for Jarrod Parker, Collin Cowgill and Ryan Cook. This is a deal where all fantasy relevant pieces could benefit. Signed through all of his arbitration years, and possibly his […]
