The weekly Top Ten list will now transition back to fantasy baseball as we approach the Super Bowl. Sure some of you still may be playing fantasy football playoff leagues or survivor pools, but most of you are now getting ready for baseball. Pitchers and catchers will be reporting to spring training in a month and fantasy magazines are hitting the newsstands. After an incredible end to the 2011 MLB season and a very entertaining World Series between the Cardinals and Rangers, everyone gets a clean slate and a fresh start. Part of starting anew is evaluating what changes have been made during the offseason. So, without further adieu, here are the Top Ten baseball offseason transactions (as of January 18, 2012) with the most fantasy implications.
It was another interesting day in the world of fantasy baseball, and we cover it all like a glove. A once struggling slugger continues to absolutely roll, while an under the radar starting pitcher is doing everything he can to get on your radar. There is news on a closer change in the midwest, as well as a starter in Atlanta that is on a total roll. But perhaps the biggest news of the night is a catching legend in the Bronx who refused to play after being dropped in the lineup. If you want to win your fantasy baseball league you need Fantasy Alarm and all of the content we provide, feel free to check out it all.
Although his season has been littered with a few nagging injuries, Brad Lidge is definitely having a fairly solid season. He converted his 19th game of the year with just five blown and the rest of his numbers are a huge improvement from 2009. LIdge had an ERA over 7.00 last season, and while it still isn't great he has it down to 3.57 in 2010. His strikeouts are on a better rate and he isn't walking nearly as many batters. I am not saying that he will be an elite closer next year, but Lidge should be a little more trustworthy in 2011.
