@fantasytrade411 interview (fantasy baseball)

Who would you take #1 overall and #4 overall?

how good will Will Middlebrookes be this year?

Why are people drafting Paul Goldshmidt so high (23rd in HRs by 1st basemen) (19th overall ADP by mock draft ?

considering how good Edwin Encarncion was last year do you think he is Falling in drafts or just right? how likely to repeat numbers from last year?

Some players you are high on and some players you will not be drafting

Can you trust R.A. Dickey this year?

Ike Davis, Eric Hosmer, or Anthony rizzo Rank them and why?

2 Start Pitchers for next week

Daniel Bard- @KC, vs CLE

Philip Humber- @cle, vs KC

A.J. Burnett- vs Wash, vs, Hou

Felix Doubront- @ KC, vs Cle

2 start pitchers from last week

Henderson Alvarez, TOR- @ Bal,vs SEA pitched 13 innings, only had 1 K but had 2 QS, 1 wiin, 2.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP

Tommy Hunter- vs TOR, vs OAK also pitched 13 Innings, had 2 QS, 1 Win, 4 Ks, a 2.08 ERA, and 1.08 WHIP.

Mark Burhle didn’t start 2 games

R.A. Dickey- vs MIA, @ Col didn’t get 2 starts b/c of rain but still had 1 really good start as he pitched 7 innings, struck out 7 got the win and QS. his era 1.29 and had a .57 whip for the game. Great start.


Doug Fister  P, Det (70%)- was great last season and most owners dropped him when he went on the DL this year. Last year he had a 2.83 ERA, 1.06 whips and had 146ks to only 37 Walks. Go pick him immeediiatly if he is your league

Alcides Escobar SS, KC—if your desperate at SS look now further than THIS GUY. He can produce in SBs, as he 5 of them on the season. He his hitting .295 and is hitting atop a solid lineup

Michael Saunders  OF, SEA (ESPN 3.6%)- has been on fire in his 6 games as he is has 2 Homeruns, 9 RBIs a .348 BA, and even 1 SB.

Gerardo Parra OF, ARZ ( ESPN 24%)- picked this guy up in a couple of leagues and has produced. He gets Stolen bases, runs and rbis, will hurt the average alil bit.In his last 13 games he has scored 10 runs, hit 2 homerunes, 9 rbis, 5 SB. and a .267 BA. Will get PT as long as Chris young is hurt and even will get some after. he is tied for 5th in Stolen bases.

Jed Lowrie 3b,SS, HOU-  He has 2 homeruns, 5 rbis, and 4 runs over his last 6 games and is hitting .360 during that span. He will play almost everyday for the stros and this guy can put solid numbers when he gets hot.

Don’t Give up

The weeks brothers have both struggled mightly to start the season.  but keep faith in these 2 guys. Rickie will by far come around and he will hit for power and RBIS, while Jemile weeks will steal bases, He has 4 but that number should jump when he starts getting on base more.

Lucas Duda Abides- this guy is going to get hit 20 homeruns, Close to 100 RBIs and will hit close to .285. Just be patient.

Coco Crisp has 3 SBs in his last 6 games. he is hitting a miserable .190 on the season but that will defiantly go up and when that does his stolen bases will drastically increase.
