Sure the Cubs are the consensus pick. But why is everyone discounting a team that nearly won 100 games last year? The Pirates could be making some in house moves that can only help Andrew McCutchen’s numbers.

Marwin Gonzalez, A Man Of Many Talents, Versatility, and A Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

The Houston Astros finished second in the Majors with 230 HRs as a club in 2015, based on 11 guys with 10+ HRs - and 2 more players with 9.  Houston will try to cut down on leading the American League with 1392 Strikeouts in 2015, that came from 7 different guys possessing over 100+ Strikeouts each.  The squad also led the AL with SB in 121.  As a sign of a complete team, Marwin Gonzalez was a perfect compliment to the starters, clubbing 12 HRs and adding 34 RBI in his 344 AB in 2015.

Many fantasy owners overlook the value of Houston Astros utility man, Marwin Gonzalez. At only 27 years old, he should be entering his prime in the next few years and will make a big impact for many fantasy baseball owners.

Gonzalez provides positional versatility that could take your fantasy baseball roster to the next level. In 2015, he played 15 games in left field, 15 games at second base, 21 games at third base, 32 games at shortstop, and 43 games at first base.

Based off of normal fantasy baseball positional requirements (minimum of 10 games for positional eligibility), Marwin Gonzalez will be eligible at every infield position and the outfield (left field specifically).

While Marwin Gonzalez has a lot of value in his positional eligibility, he also has tons of value in his ability to produce above average statistics. To view the rest of the article, click the link below:

Haggling over contracts is nothing new in professional baseball. For years, players and management have gone back and forth over getting the perceived upper hand when it comes to determining worth. 

In the days before free agency and player representation, teams could more or less dictate the terms, which could lead to some pretty unhappy exchanges and counter proposals.

Perhaps none were as bizarre as hard-drinking catcher Larry McLean, who tried to negotiate the payment of 25 cents for every drink he refused during the 1911 season with the Cincinnati Reds.

Robinson Cano: Fantasy Sleeper, Bounce Back, And Ready To Return To An Elite Second Base Option

Robinson Cano enters year 3 of a 10 season contract.  So far his arrival has not corresponded into a playoff birth.  The Mariners now hold the longest playoff drought in the Major Leagues. The Second Baseman will need to return to a MVP caliber style of play if the franchise wants to be players in the AL West.

Robinson Cano enters year 3 of a 10 season contract. So far his arrival has not corresponded into a playoff berth. The Mariners now hold the longest playoff drought in the Major Leagues.

Many fantasy baseball owners thought that Robinson Cano was starting to regress last year as he struggled through injuries that affected his first half of the 2015 season, but it looks as if they were wrong. In the first half of 2015, he hit only .251 and struggled to produce his typical run production.

This rough first half was due to an abdominal strain and a terrible stomach condition that affected his energy. Cano was quoted saying that some days he could barely drink water without feeling like he was going to get sick, which shows that his energy wasn’t at a normal level.

This stomach condition lasted much longer than a typical illness, but not many people were aware of this. Following the all-star break, he entered the second half and posted a .331 batting average.

Once he recovered from his bizarre illness, Cano was back to himself. He finished the 2015 season hitting .287 with 21 home runs, 79 RBI’s, 82 runs, and a .334 OBP. To read the rest of the article, click the link below:
