The subjects? Huff v. Wilkerson. Cabrera v. Wright. Good drafting v. bad drafting. With chatter about Matt Cain, Troy Glaus and Jeremy Hermida. Don’t miss it!
There has been a bit of discussion about position scarcity recently, as there is every March really. Along the way I remembered this interesting series (there is a part III, which can be found at http://www.mixednutsleague.com/nuthouse3.shtml). Todd is one of the mastersball.com posse.
One of the reasons I remembered it was because it got me thinking about this issue and looking into it further. But more about that later. For now, reading Todd’s story is a good place to start.
The new one is up. Sheffield or Jeter? Jeter or Sheffield? Is this a tossup? What makes a freeze? Is Clint Barmes a dear? Plus some chatter, all over at mlb.com.
MLB.com’s Mark Newman asked me to kick in some tips for new fantasy baseball players. 10 to be exact. I gave him 11 and he appropriated the last one, which is to have fun. Reading them over now I wonder if I missed some.
Anthony Beaulieu won the 2nd Annual Rotoman Regulars League, and with some encouragement from me wrote a Strategies of Champions piece about how he put together his winning team. Confusion about the due date and some last-minute ads nudged the piece out of the magazine, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a look. I don’t think anything teaches us more about strategy than learning what actual champions did to win their league.
