“All Things Fantasy” (5-7-12)

This is Monday, May 7th 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy”. Jeff Erickson from rotowire.com joins me to talk Fantasy Baseball. We discuss, some Second Basemen, Closers, Some pitchers that have started off hot, and more. Also, I give you some pickups you should make and 2 start pitchers for next week. The notes are attached.


2 week starters

deep league is Wade Miley @ LAD, @ KC has his last 2 out 3 starts and allowed only 4 runs in that span and that all came in one game. He gets almost a Strikeout per innings and could put up  great stats next week

Henderson Alavarez (4%)-vs TB, vs NYM makes it back on this list. while he doesn’t strike out a lot of batters only 12 in 41 innings. he does have a great 2.83 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. The TB offense is good but if he can make it through the start then the Mets should be an easy W. he did give up 6 ERs against them in his first time he faced TB.

Jeff Niemann @Tor, vs ATL

Ryan Vogelsong- vs Col, vs OAK

Drew Smyly – (45% ESPN)@CHW, vs Pit has not given up more than2 ER in any start this season. has 29 Ks in 28 Innings, he wont get a lot of 2 start weeks but if gets 2 next week he could have a huge next week against a weak offense in Pit and an OK offense in the Sox

2 week starts from last week

Juan Nicasio vs LAD, vs ATL had 1 win, 1 QS, 9 ks in 11. but have a 6.55 ERA and 2 whip

Bronson Arroyo-  vs CHC, @ PIT didn’t start twice,

Phil Hughes- vs BAL, @ KC did ok he had 1 win and 1 QS in 12 inns, with 13 Ks, and a high era of 5.11 but did have a .97 WHIP

Clay Bucholz vs OAK, vs BALT got lit up. His stats are so bad I cant even calculate them


Players to add

Josh “chronicles of” Reddick OAK, OF(40% ESPN) – has 5 multi hit games in his 10 games and has 5 HR, 11 RBIs, 16 runs, and 3 SBs. He has started almost every game this year for Oakland and look for him to keep getting Regular PT.

Andres Torres NYM OF (.6%)- Was just activated from the DL about a week ago and has started every game since his return and has gotten a hit in every game since then. Has a .333 BA, 3 runs, 6 RBIs, 1 SB and .407 OBP

Andrew Cashner

Jake Arrieta  SP, BAL- has been pretty good this year has he has a ok ERA at 3.52 but a low WHIP of .99 He has 33ks in 38 Innings, and 3 QS out of 6. his record is 2-2 on the season. However his next 2 starts are against TEX and TB so be careful.

Chris Johnson 3B, Houston

Kyle Seager 3B, Seattle

Yonder Alonso 1B, OF San Dieg- The hits are there, eventually the RBI’s are going to come. He has a .361 OBP  on the season and .444 OBP in the last 15 days. He is batting in the middle of order and has always been a solid prospect
