Pitcher List’s 2018 Mock Draft Recap: Andrew Todd-Smith’s Picks

It’s Andrew Todd Smith's turn to detail his round-by-round thoughts as we continue our coverage of the Pitcher List 2018 Mock draft.


Andrew Todd-Smith’s 10 Bold Predictions in Review

We’re continuing to review the Pitcher List Staff Bold Predictions this week, with Andrew Todd-Smith next up as he looks back at his predictions from March. 1. Oakland’s bullpen is so mired in committee mediocrity that both closer candidates Ryan Madson and Santiago Casilla each blow seven saves and fail to amass 30 saves individually This […]


Batter’s Box: We Are Living In An Alternate Correality

For owners who may have despondent when Astros SS Carlos Correa sustained his torn thumb ligament and had to somehow slog through six weeks of fantasy play without him: holy moly, is he coming up big now that it’s crunch time in the playoffs. After a scintillating 4-4, 3 R, HR, 3 RBI, BB line […]


Batter’s Box: Grandrew Slam

I understood, when this season began, why fellow fantasy enthusiasts were scoffing at the concept of believing that Andrew McCutchen could ever return to stardom. He was coming off career lows in average and steals, and he also had fewer runs per game played and his lowest RBI total since 2010. It was like he […]


Batter’s Box: Are You Suzukidding Me?

It’s hard to believe, since the conventional wisdom that Tyler Flowers was the catcher to own in Atlanta has long lingered in my consciousness, but Kurt Suzuki has actually been one of the more effective second-half catchers in the entire league. Upon some deeper delving, I know I was surprised to discover that among catchers […]


Batter’s Box: The Linds of Change

What Cleveland SS Francisco Lindor is accomplishing right now during this second half is simply incredible. Not only has he reached safely in all but two September games (a BB in two of his four hitless games this month), but he’s got the eighth-best slugging percentage league-wide since the All-Star break. His 1-4, R, HR, […]


Batter’s Box: The Jackson Thrive

For a team that’s chasing home field advantage throughout the playoffs, 30-year-old OF Austin Jackson has been consistently delivering clutch hitting in under-the-radar fashion for Cleveland all summer long. With a 4-5, R, RBI evening in Anaheim, this is the type of low-profile yet still valuable outing Indians fans have been getting accustomed to seeing […]


Batter’s Box: 20/20 Vision Runs In The Phamily

And just like that, Tommy Pham has joined the 20/20 Club for the 2017 season. With his 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K, 2 SB line Thursday against Cincinnati, Pham went yard for the first time since August 30 and also managed to inflate his batting average ever so slightly to an appetizing […]


Hitter List 9/15: Ranking The Top 150 Batters ROS

Every week during the season, we have been releasing a list of the best batters in fantasy baseball that’s designed to be similar to Nick’s list of Top 100 Starting Pitchers that comes out earlier in the week. Our objective has been to give you the most current rankings of who we see as being […]


Batter’s Box: The Other Santana Isn’t Getting A Fair Shake

Milwaukee OF Domingo Santana has been an interesting fantasy play and unsung hero for Milwaukee all year long. After going 3-4, 2 RBI, K, SB Tuesday against Pittsburgh, it was intriguing to see him contribute in a non-power, non-run-scoring capacity. Normally, he does have cross-category value and will bring something to the table in each […]


Batter’s Box: For Your Sake, Abreu Don’t Have To Play Against Him

Sure, it was against the hapless San Francisco Giants, but Jose Abreu had himself a slugstravaganza over the weekend. If an elite fantasy 1B going 7-11, 6 R, 3 HR, 6 RBI, BB, K doesn’t call for invoking an awesome and newly coined word, then I don’t know what would. It’s a shame Abreu is […]


Batter’s Box: Lucroy Me A River

It is mind-boggling to me that C Jonathan Lucroy has scored a number of runs this year (34) that is just 10 greater than the number of homers he launched in 2016. That is an unprecedented caliber of sophomore slump after being a great power threat last year with Milwaukee. He was supposed to be, […]

Batter’s Box: The Cron Prince of Los Angeles

As the fantasy season draws to a close, I’m trying to direct a fair portion of my focus toward the fringe guys. That could mean guys whose bats are hot right now despite their season-long counting stats perhaps not standing out to a less investigate eye. Or it could refer to guys who are ending […]


Batter’s Box: Detroit Victimized By Tribe And The Battering J-Ram

It isn’t really fair what Cleveland utilityman Jose Ramirez is doing to opposing pitching during the team’s current 11-game winning streak. Terrorizing the Tigers at Comerica Park during the weekend series to the tune of 8-14, 4 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, J-Ram’s contributions were felt even more palpably in points formats since he doubled […]
