NL West At A Glance Arizona Diamondbacks: The D’Backs made tough decisions this off-season They decided to build their roster based on their team concept, and not based on just overall talent. Some think Justin Upton was the move that proved their concept, but I think it was sending Trevor Bauer to Cleveland. Kevin Towers and Kirk Gibson have an idea of what they want this team to look and act like, and they apparently did […]

I heard through the grapevine that the lot of you are looking to Xtreem and I for fantasy advice. Yes, like thirsty wanderers in the desert of fantasy baseball who have found the well of knowledge, rest assured that the knowledge water… yeah, this analogy is not going anywhere. So I was tasked with putting together the top 15 outfielders for the 2013 Fantasy Season to continue with our series – after Xtreem threw out […]
Welcome to the first installment of a yet to be determined number of installments Satish and I will be putting together on fantasy rankings for the upcoming season. This piece, about the top ten third basemen, will be followed by Satish’s rankings of outfielders and starting pitching, while I will subsequently add relief pitchers, as well. Since most fantasy leagues use the standard fantasy categories of runs scored, home runs, RBI, stolen bases and batting […]
The New York Mets ended up winning 74 games during the 2012 season. Their Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey was traded and their most productive outfielder, Scott Hairston, has departed as well. The farm system may be in much better shape, and their projected 2014 payroll will be in the bottom of the majors for now – potentially opening a lot of financial flexibility going forward. However, is doom and gloom in store for the […]
Prospect maven John Sickels really loves righthander Noah Syndergaard, who he ranked #12 on his Top 50 Pitching Prospects list inside his 2013 Baseball Prospect Book. He shared what he wrote about Syndergaard on his site Minor League Ball this morning: Noah Syndergaard is one of my very favorite prospects. A supplemental first round pick in 2010 from high school in Texas, he’s thrived thus far in pro ball, generating very enthusiastic scouting reports to go along […]
On Monday, Zack Wheeler told reports that he intends to make the decision hard on the Mets to send him down rather than have him break camp with the team, and that he won’t go down without a fight. This is just a microcosm for the 2013 New York Mets roster, now chock full of players who detest the idea of losing, are self-motivated and are workhorses willing to take on challenges ahead and become […]
According to a report, the Cubs are willing to eat $26 million of the remaining $36 million owed left fielder Alfonso Soriano over the next two seasons, the last of the eight-year, $136 million deal he signed before the 2007 season. The contract includes a full no-trade clause, which Soriano invoked last season when he rejected a trade to the San Francisco Giants, using the negative effect the cold weather would have on his knees. […]

Headley was voted the top defensive third baseman in the National League by managers and coaches.
