h2h Corner ~ Katy Perry (Hot ‘N’ Cold Fantasy Baseball) All-Stars

Players get hot and cold over a seven-day period, it’s as sure as the samples are small.

That is why Katy created the Hot ‘N’ Cold All-stars.

Cause you’re hot…you’re yes…you’re in…you’re up

Chris Heisey– I don’t know a baseball fan alive who doesn’t like Chris Heisey– he, sort of, reminds me of Cary Conklin – man Redskin fans loved that back-up QB. Well, I guess the comparison isn’t that apt as Heisey has put together amazing weeks (and showed he is damn good at his sport…Conklin, not so much). Over the last seven days, Heisey is 8/18 with four homers. In just 270 plate appearances this year, he has amassed 17 dingers with an astounding .249 ISO. Still, he is striking out a ton and swinging and missing a lot. I keep hearing that he is better than Drew Stubbs – he isn’t yet. He has a decent line drive rate and is benefiting from a good bit of his balls landing over the fence. Grab him while he is hot, but playing time could continue to be sporadic and he isn’t Jonny Gomes.

Lonnie Chisenhall – The non-Jason Kipnis Indians prospect, Chisenhall has been largely ignored by the fantasy community. However, he went 7/25 over the last seven days with three bombs. He probably wasn’t quite ready for prime time when he got the call (he sits at .234/.263/.421), but he has four homers this month. He is still getting fooled a lot (look at the K-rate and swinging strike percentage compared to his Honey I Shrunk the Kids walk rate). However, if you need power from third (and really who doesn’t), you might as well kick the tires at this point – he is certainly someone you can shuttle in and out of your line-up on off days.

Gerardo Parra – I have a special insert Parra card so I like him – it’s a default reflex sort of love. Still, Parra always seems to do a few things each year to make him interesting. To wit, his last seven days:   8/21 with a homer and steal. He is now 28 for his last 86. He is slowly getting more looks at the top of the line-up which should help with runs. He’s not a sexy option, but he should hit for a decent average and score some runs.

h2h Corner ~ I’m a Believer: June Edition

You’re hitting the tough part of the fantasy baseball season. At this point you’re really doubting your struggling stars and the urge to drop is high. But it’s still somewhat early. Patience isn’t always a virtue, but, in this instance, it is.

Players who will bounce back: Dan Uggla, Evan Longoria, Carl Crawford, Alex Rios, Ubaldo Jimenez, Max Scherzer, Chris Carpenter, and Mat Latos.

Remember when I said Anibal Sanchez was a sleeper this year? 13th in Ks right now!

I love James Shields (always own him), but he’s not the second best fantasy pitcher…right? Can’t be….

One thing I am certain of? Kyle Lohse is not the third best pitcher in fantasy (maybe on his team, but not in baseball).

I’m amazed by the Marlins – Johnson injured, Hanley not so good/injured. I thought they’d be good, but had you told me about their injury woes and the craptastic way Vazquez has pitched, I’d be shocked they were in the play-off hunt. That said, I still think the Braves run away with the Wild Card.

h2h Corner ~ The Buddy Garrity, Don Draper, Ed Norton Sales Convention

Buddy Garrity sales time (sell now)
When it is Buddy Garrity sales time, you should be moving players immediately. These are players that will likely regress to means or not perform as well as they have been (i.e., sell high candidates).

Matt Joyce – It’s safe to say, I’ve been a Matt Joyce supporter (see: here & here). However, I can’t buy his current production: .367/.426/.608 with six bombs. Currently his isolated power* is in line with last year, so his power profile is somewhat legit (although his HR/FB is elevated over last season). In addition, his line drive percentage is about 10% higher than in 2010. Continue reading

h2h Corner ~ Knowing ADP – How To Win Your League Before the Season Even Starts IX

Maximizing every drop of value in every pick is hugely important. Taking a player in the fifth round that you could just as easily have taken in the sixth round is a major mistake. To avoid this, you need to know all about Average Draft Position (ADP). Continue reading
