Hi everyone. I’m thrilled to be contributing to Fantasy Alarm’s coverage of this part-time hobby, full-time obsession we call fantasy baseball. I’ll be dropping by each week to share some thoughts, discuss some strategy and hopefully have a little fun. Today we will take a look at Starting Pitching and the numbers you need to remain competitive in your league as well as which players have become eligible at new positions this week.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure is how the old adage goes, and it couldn’t be any more perfect a phrase when discussing the trade of Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox just a few short weeks ago. Bobby Valentine may have won the Battle of Beantown, but it is the White Sox who have won the war and it is Youkilis who is enjoying the last laugh here. As the Red Sox try to fight their way out of last place and a 9 ½ game deficit in the AL East, the White Sox are sitting atop the AL Central, 3 ½ games ahead of heavily favored Detroit, and Youkilis has played a tremendous role in the process.
Due to my own personal time constraints, we’re going to change up the format for today and just touch on a few highlights. At some point I’ll figure out what day of the week is best to take a breather, but given some of the events occurring on Saturday, I deemed it necessary to discuss a few situations to which fantasy owners should pay strict attention. We can skip the top performers and their unsavory counterparts for the day though and get right to the juicy stuff.
