It would be easy to get caught up in the onslaught of fantasy football and the kickoff of the new season this week, but if you find yourself in the midst of a competitive battle in baseball, now is the time to capitalize on other owners’ inattention.   You have fought too hard over the lengthy and involved season to lose focus now.   Here is the help you need to get a strong lineup on the field this week.

If you’ve been paying attention at all to prospects, you know the basics.   You know that Bryce Harper is a special talent.   Mike Trout is going to be a star for many, many years. Matt Moore is the next coming of Sandy Koufax.   Jesus Montero is the best hitting ‘catcher’ to come along in years.   Sound familiar?   Throughout your research in trying to find the next big star, you’ve likely come across something that resembled the above.   I’m not here to tell you about these players.   Sure, I think they are special talents who are all going to have very successful MLB careers (Moore, in particular I’ve been following for years).   I want YOU to be the guy who is on top of the upcoming prospects before they get known to the mass-market media.   Throughout the year, this column will be dedicated to clueing you in on what is going down on the farm.   Come back weekly, and maybe you’ll hit gold in your prospect hunt!

You have a great start to your squad, but are now entering the make-or-break portion of the draft. A couple of misguided picks in this section and it can send your whole draft into a tailspin. The key words to remember at this juncture are balance and patience. Curveballs will be thrown your way, but just like on the diamond if you’re ready for them you will connect.

Fantasy owners look at him from a glass half empty perspective and say "Hill's peaked already and he'll never hit anything close to 36 HR's again like he did in 2009".   We couldn't agree more except that fantasy owners are downgrading him far too much in their evaluation.

While it seems like he’s been around forever, he’s actually just 27 and is coming off a career year with the Kansas City Royals, posting a .305 average, 18 home runs, 102 runs scored, 87 runs batted in, 27 stolen based. Step back … those are some impressive numbers!

Why on Earth do we have this guy so low? He hit .320 with 30 home runs and 75 runs batted in last year and is slated for more designated hitter at-bats this year than at-bats as a catcher … we must be nuts! We say, if you think Dan Uggla is a bargain in Round 5, then Mike Napoli is your guy at catcher because he’s going off the board late in Round 4.

In Part 2 of this series, we’re going to continue to build the foundation of your team. You’ve got a great start with a corner infielder in Round 1, but the next 2-3 rounds are equally as important in laying the ground work for your championship-caliber team. Since I didn’t disclose in Part 1, this series is written from the perspective of a daily transaction 12-team mixed league with 14 bats and nine arms in the starting lineup with five bench spots.

Winning fantasy baseball teams are built by cleverly drafting players on the cusp of a breakout season while managing to not overpay for players who will not deliver a repeat of a career season. Here is a look at position players who might be primed for a breakout campaign and others that I suggest you draft cautiously.

As we flip the calendar to March, baseball teams are reporting to spring training. That can only mean that fantasy baseball drafts are just around the corner. If you are a fantasy baseball traditionalist like me and enjoy playing in rotisserie scoring leagues, you have to keep reading to find out about a winning strategy that will help you draft a well-balanced, winning team.

Matt Kemp and Troy Tulowitzki are very attractive and tempting names at the top of the draft.  Kemp bordered on a 40/40 season on a putrid Dodgers team and Tulowitzki will probably be the #1 rated shortstop for the next half decade.  However, they are not the keys to success for this season.

Once Albert Pujols was off the market and headed to the Los Angeles, all eyes focused on free agent Prince Fielder. With signs pointed to the Washington Nationals and Texas Rangers, the Detroit Tigers swooped in to sign the highly regarded slugger. 

With Fielder and Miguel Cabrera now hitting back to back, what fantasy implications will result from this acquisition? How will Detroit fare in 2012? Take a dive with me as we answer these questions.

We like Ian Kennedy (not personally because we’ve never met him), but drafting him late last season, Kennedy put up Cy Young type numbers, winning 21 games, with nearly 200 strikeouts, a sub 3.00 earned run average and a sporty 1.09 walks plus hits per inning pitched (WHIP). So what to expect for 2012?

This is the intro, syllabus day, and just like your professors have tried to drill into your head in years past (or in some of your case’s, many years past), I am going to tell you how important this is and just hope you retain some of it.

"How much do I love thee …  let me count the ways.” Elizabeth Barrett Browning wasn't talking about Dan Uggla, but could have been when it comes to a lot of his fantasy owners and the stats he put up in the second half of 2011.

Mark Chamberlin Speed, and Why You Don’t Need to Worry About It Until The Very End of the Draft Speed, and Why You Don’t Need to Worry About It Until The Very End of the Draft
Mark Chamberlin, Fantasy Baseball Staff Writer
Mar 9, 2011
Most will remember 2010 as the year of the pitcher, but one thing that’s getting lost is how much more teams are emphasizing the base paths - stealing them, turning a single into a double, going first to third on a single, getting home from first on a double, the list goes on. All of this is why you do not need to worry about speed until late in the draft, no matter how long you wait there will still be stolen bases to acquire.
