Ivan Nova- The Yanks Secret to Success

As I wrote 9 days ago, Ivan Nova is a legit starting pitcher in MLB. He solidified the 4th starting spot on the Yanks. His first outing – 6 innings, 3 ER, 3K, 2 BB, and most importantly a win. He was worth 66 points in my fantasy league. Not bad for my 14th round […]

Jake Peavy- Back to the Top?

As I wrote in a much earlier piece (Peavy the Pud or Peavy the Stud) Jake Peavy could be th sleeper of 2011. He just completed a 59 pitch simulated game at the Sox’s Arizona Training facility. I strongly recommend stashing him on your DL roster now before the the rest of the fantasy world […]

Ivan Nova #4 Freddy G #5 Rivera/Soriano – Fantasy Logic?

In baseball I always look for those breakout pitchers. Fantasy baseball express did a great piece on NL starting pitchers. I’m going to pick off […]

Phillie Fantasy Baseball Sleepers

I’m a Philly boy and I’m looking forward to another World Series. In fantasy play you always look for those possible sleepers. Two players on the […]
