h2h Corner ~ Katy Perry (Hot ‘N’ Cold) 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.

I think Matthew Berry (not this guy) subtly stole my column idea!! His latest opus talks about the Maxim Top 100, which, as you well know, loyal reader, I discussed a week ago. He also goes on to say Katy is too highly ranked, which I agree with. To his credit, he does mention his love for the song Hot ‘N’ Cold, but, really, only haters could deny its excellence. No harm no foul, right? Continue reading

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). In addition, they include guys I don’t think will perform well at all during the rest of the season. These are players you are best cutting your losses with.

It’s not like you can get much for them though, unless you are swindling a newcomer. So, if you are in a league with newcomers, go ahead and offer these guys around. None will maintain their current AVG/ERA/WHIP. Buck, Barajas and Bautista do have some power, so this isn’t a complete aberration, but they’ll accompany it with horrid averages. Continue reading

h2h Corner ~ The David Wooderson All-Stars (II)

Regardless of your league’s format, knowing the hot up-and-coming prospects is super important to fantasy success. In keeper leagues, these players, often taken in the later rounds, typically form the foundation of fantasy dynasties. In single season leagues, smartly grabbing young players in the draft or shortly after their call-up is essential to success. Any way you look at it, it pays to know something about these general unknowns while they are still unknown. If you wait too long, you’ll be watching as they contribute meaningfully to your buddy’s team as he wins the league. Continue reading

h2h Corner ~ Katy Perry All-Stars XVI

It’s playoff time. Your friends and “purported experts” will tell you what you need to do: pull out all the stops, leave everything on the field, blah, blah, blah. They’re wrong. What you need to do is be strategic. Continue reading
