Buy Low on Nolasco

Tagged:  •    •  

Ricky Nolasco is still goodRicky Nolasco is still goodI, like a lot of other fantasy owners, probably drafted Ricky Nolasco a bit earlier than some thought he was worth.  However, if you looked at his 2008 numbers you would hard pressed to find any fault with doing so.  He had nearly a 8K/9IP strikeout ratio, a 4.43K/BB ratio, and just a 1.10 WHIP...all with a fairly standard .284 BABIP.  He was a waiver wire pickup in our league, and the reason I grabbed him somewhat earlier than expected in our league was because I was watching him last year, and then someone snagged him right out from under my watch.  So, I was bound to not let that happen again  this year, but now that I have him, his ERA and WHIP look like that of a 2007 Justin Verlander.  But like Verlander of this year (more to come), you have to look more into it.

Howdy Again, If you read the Talented Mr.Roto(Matthew Berry) you should know by now that you should never pay for saves. He is 100% right on this one. Saves come inThe TMR says never pay for saves. You should believe him.The TMR says never pay for saves. You should believe him. and out of the league all season long. You can even pull of trades for saves if you have to because there are always managers with excess that don't need the saves anymore. Every year you will see managers reach for a Papelbon or Nathan in like the fourth round. I say fine let them have them. You can get your saves later with not having to sacrifice other stats.

Howdy All, The OF spot in fantasy is where you fill up your teams needs. Most leagues require that you field 5 outfielders. That would be funny if they did that in real baseball. The re is a lot of talent roaming the outfield, but you got to remeber Who knows what you will find lurking in the OF.Who knows what you will find lurking in the OF.that it will go fast because everyone needs five. I feel that you probably want to lock up 3 good OF's on your team, and then take some chances with the last two spots. Every year we see people break out like Quentin, or prospects come up to provide a spark. So you will be able to fill your needs with those types of players. If someone isn't working out, don't sit on them to long, because you will need to act fast to grab the next stud off the waiver wire.Now lets get to the list and see what gems we can find lurking out there.
