The Wire Troll: Emilio Bonifacio Second to None

Posted July 27, 2014 by Anonymous

Brush those trade rumours aside, Mr. Ackley, we don’t think you’ll be going anywhere. You may, however, find some new Fantasy owners after your torrid July, which includes a .358 average, 814 OPS, and five RBIs. No, Ackley’s season numbers don’t wow you, but the former No. 2 overall draft pick seems to be finding his stroke as of late.

2014 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Top 65 Prospects, Part VI

Posted July 21, 2014 by RotoRob

The Pirates’ first rounder from 2010 is still only 22, so we maintain our belief in him as a top 10 prospect despite this setback which derails any value he might have had this year. Now, we’ll have to wait until 2015 before this talented hurler is unleashed on the majors. This kid has the potential to average better than a strikeout per inning, and the valuable experience he accrued at Double-A last year should allow him to hit the ground running as soon as he’s healthy. Taillon hasn’t put together impressive won-loss records in the minors, but we’re not worried. A mid-season Eastern League All-Star last year, he really helped alleviate our worries about home run issues last year — and that was the one weakness he had. Every other part of the towering 6’6″ righty’s game should translate well into the bigs when he arrives.

The Wire Troll: Joaquin Benoit Steps Up

Posted July 20, 2014 by Anonymous

The second half is officially underway, which means rumours about who stays and who goes from teams’ rosters is now all the rage. No one expected the San Diego Padres to be anything but sellers at the trade deadline, so the deal sending Huston Street up the coast to Anaheim was no surprise. For Fantasy owners, this means Joaquin Benoit is the man to own, just as he was last year for Detroit. For now, at least.

Diamond Stocks: Sam Fuld Back in the Fold

Posted July 14, 2014 by Anonymous

ESPN owners are taking notice, with Wong experiencing a 34.8 percentage point increase to 38.9. That number still dwarfs his 55 per cent ownership in CBS leagues, but his popularity spike is justified. Wong has hit in seven of eight games this month at a .321 clip, tattooing five long balls while driving in eight and also stealing three bases.

2014 MLB Draft Team Grades: AL Central

Posted July 12, 2014 by Anonymous

We would define this as the prototypical “solid if not spectacular” draft class for Cleveland, with more substance than flash. There is plenty of upside with many of the Indians’ top choices, especially Zimmer and Sheffield. Cleveland did not overload on pitching as some teams had a tendency to, but it need make no apologies.
