The 2011 baseball season is almost over, so this edition of the Top Ten List will be my final edition of the fantasy baseball season. Don’t cry…no really, don’t cry. I will still provide you with witty insight during the offseason. But for the purposes of the 2011 season, this marks the end of our wonderful journey. This special edition of the Top Ten List is much like the Oscars, except there is no corny host with bad jokes and no one will judge you because you wear skin-tight nylon shirts and skids. The 2011 fantasy baseball season was filled with many surprises, both good and bad. There were some remarkable performances and some underwhelming ones as well. While we are always looking ahead and planning for the future, this Top Ten List focuses on the past and remembering the memorable 2011 season. So, without further adieu, here is the final fantasy baseball Top Ten List of the season.
Welcome to the very special Hurricane Irene Edition of the Tuesday Top Ten. Just days after many in the northeast felt the rumble from the earthquake, we were subjected to Hurricane Irene and all of its aftermath. Before you start thinking the end of the world is near because of all these natural disasters, just remember that Adam Dunn and Mark Reynolds both struck out three times since you began reading this article, so all is right in the world again. Now, without further adieu, here is this week’s edition of the Tuesday Top Ten fantasy baseball headlines for August 30, 2011.
It is just about September and you are looking at your fantasy roster and thinking "where the hell did I go wrong? I drafted such a great team!" Well friends, sometimes things that look great on paper don't turn out to be exactly what we thought they might. And then other times they are so bad that it kills your season all together. Well, if you have more than one or two guys on this list below, chances are you aren't a happy camper when you think about Fantasy Baseball 2011, and chances are also that your team is on the lower third of the standings. I present to you the ten biggest busts of the 2011 season, why they were busts, and whether I think this was just a subpar season or whether this is going to be a trend that continues.
We are just two days away from the All-Star Break, but of course these games are still important as all of the news keeps rolling in. One of the top prospects left in the minors is coming to the majors, but his manager has already said that his stay won't be long. Another Red Sox pitcher goes down, which another AL pitcher takes one on the chin. One of my big man crushes is living up to my love, even if he didn't make the All-Star Break. A first round fantasy pick is finally waking up, while a guy we took a few rounds later is still disappointing. My pitching streamer from the other night didn't get the win, but it appears I am back on track as he still pitched really well. There will only be one more article before the Break so enjoy tonight's Rounding The Bases.
June means prospect time and today was no exception as one of the most intriguing prospects in baseball is coming to the Big Show. Perhaps he won't be the best, but he seems to be the one that fantasy players have been talking about for a long time. We also have good news for once on an injured star, and a slumping star finally parks one in the seats. We have an established pitcher who keeps getting pounded, while we have news on two younger guys who are looking very strong. Don't forget to check out the pitch streamer for Saturday as so far we have had a pretty good record of success. Can you ask for anything more from Rounding The Bases?
It is hard to believe, but it is Tuesday once again which means it is time for the Top Ten list of newsworthy fantasy baseball happenings. The calendar has turned to June and the fantasy baseball season has entered its tenth week. Time seems to fly by when you are having fun or checking the waiver wire to fill the void left by an injured player. That being said, let's dive right into the Tuesday Top Ten list and see what is crack-a-lacking.
There is a LOAD of bad injury news this season, including two guys that you really didn't want to see in the same sentence as the word injury. One Yankee star continues to lead the league in long balls, while perhaps their best hitter took one in the dome today. There is a potential closer who is having trouble between the ears, and a catcher who is having trouble between the legs. We have a Twins closer blowing a game, while a hitter trying to keep them in it. Lastly there is a hot prospect who goes yard, while a returning speedster is stealing bags like it is his job. All of that and don't forget to sign up for the Fantasy Alarm service to be sure that you never have to start a benched player again.
Dude, let's go get an appendectomy! Yeah, that's right you heard me, all the guys in the major leagues are doing it, it is all the rage! It's just a few puncture wounds and bam, in a week you are back in business. That might sound ridiculous, but we have another slugger whose abdomen will keep them out, as well as a pitcher whose fingernail lands him on the DL. On a positive note, one of the best closers in baseball is coming back from injury, and we talk about a handful of guys who continue to bang the baseball around. Finally there is some news on some starting pitchers, some with mixed results and a former Cy Young winner who DOMINATED.
