Yoenis Cespedes Looks Good On And Off the Field For The Mets In Their 2016 World Series Quest

Yoenis Cespedes led all LF for HRs with 35 on the campaign in 2015. He picked a contract year for his best season to date out of the 4 years he has been in the Major Leagues. Cespedes hit 17 HRs with the Mets in 2 months, after smacking out just 18 in the first four months with Detroit. Cespedes finished in the top 40 for both leagues in respective big fly's, and was tie for 13th overall with Manny Machado and David Ortiz.  Expect more of the same in 2016.  Mets are the best bet of the week for the 'Fall Classic' value wise in a lot of gambling sites based on his re-signing.

Yoenis Cespedes had a monster 2015 season after hitting .291 with 35 home runs, 101 runs, 105 RBI’s, and a .328 on base percentage. This was his best season yet and he is only 30 years old.

I would expect more of the same in 2016 after resigning with the New York Mets, who all of a sudden, has a very hitter-friendly stadium at least for him.

Although, if Cespedes, for any reason finds himself out of baseball, he could probably take over batman’s role. He already has the cannon arm to protect mankind, but he now officially owns the closest thing to the batmobile.

Yoenis Cespedes could be the superhero that society needs, but for now, he will be the hero the New York Mets need to make a run at a World Series title in 2016.

Justin Verlander Will Return To His Cy Young Form In 2016

Justin Verlander was once the best pitcher in the American League over the last 5 years. Verlander was 137 - 77 (.640) with a 3.41 ERA in the 1st 9 years of his career. The 2011 AL Cy Young Winner and 2012 Cy Young runner up is signed with the club until at least 2019, and it could be 2020 with a Vesting Option. Verlander had thrown over 200+ IP each year since 2007. The Detroit Tigers are certainly lucky the San Diego Padres took Matt Bush with the 1st overall pick - as JVerlander has been the best pitcher in the American League over the last 5 years.

Detroit Tigers right-handed pitcher, Justin Verlander, has had a tough go of it over the past two seasons. In 2014 he threw 206 innings with 15 wins, a 4.54 ERA, and 159 strikeouts.

Last year he threw only 133.1 innings with 5 wins, a 3.38 ERA, and 113 strikeouts. Many fantasy baseball owners and fans have overlooked this 33 year old veteran heading into the 2016 season, but I think he could be a steal in many drafts.

While he probably won’t have another season like his 2011 MVP and Cy Young campaign (he threw 251 innings with 24 wins, 2.40 ERA, and 250 strikeouts in 2011), I expect him to return to his ace-like capabilities that he showed from 2009-2013. To read the rest of the article, click the link below:

It looks as if potential stud first baseman, Greg Bird, will be missing the entire 2016 season due to shoulder surgery.

In 178 plate appearances in 2015, he hit .261 with 11 home runs, 31 RBI’s, 26 runs, and a .343 on base percentage.

He is only 23 years old, so he has plenty of time to recover from this labrum shoulder surgery, but it could be a huge blow to the success of the Yankees in 2016.

Corey Dickerson Is Doomed After His Trade To The Tampa Bay Rays

Earlier last week, Corey Dickerson was traded from the Colorado Rockies with Kevin Padlo to the Tampa Bay Rays for Jake McGee and German Marquez.

This trade has everyone scratching their heads. From a fantasy baseball perspective, it has many owners very upset and questioning the future for McGee, Dickerson, and their team.

The Rockies get 2 years of team control over McGee, who is will more than likely be their closer, whereas, the Rays get 4 years of team control over Dickerson, who will be fighting for a spot in the outfield, first base, or DH. 

In my opinion, I believe the Rays got the better end of the deal, but I don’t think it will help either team in the long-run. You can see my reason why Corey Dickerson is doomed below:

Dynasty Leagues: MLB Fantasy Rankings Links By Position

Fantasy Baseball is gaining tonnes of traction among sports gamblers in the world. There is no coincidence that the biggest sole reason the NFL is the most popular sport in America is because of the gambling factor. Fantasy sports has enabled fans to spread out their baseball viewing habits on TV. I have played for a few years now. Since watching one solitary game is boring - because of wasted time, every device I watch MLB on, has 4 windows of games to watch simultaneously.

The following rankings are for dynasty leagues. Dynasty leagues keep the same roster every year following the initial draft. These leagues place significantly more value on younger players, which is why my rankings may look different from a lot of other fantasy baseball rankings online.

All of my rankings are based on positional eligibility of 10 games or more at the specified position. I will state if a player has multi-positional eligibility based on these requirements in the bios of each player. If you have any questions, tweet me
