2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: The Top 30 Outfielders

Unlike third base and shortstop this year, outfield is extremely deep. In 2010, the average top-40 fantasy outfielder hit 22 homers, stole 20 base, scored 88 runs, knocked in 82 RBIs and hit .285. This speaks volumes to the depth of the position. While first- and second-round talents such as Braun, Crawford, CarGo, Holliday and Kemp are exciting to own, you’re probably better off filling your infield spots early in the draft. The likes of Alex Rios, Jacoby Ellsbury, Drew Stubbs, Ichiro Suzuki, Andre Ethier, Jay Bruce, Hunter Pence and Nick Markakis can all be drafted much later in the draft, and offer valuable production. Here’s the top 30...

2011 Fantasy Projections, No. 26: Cleveland Indians’ Shin-Soo Choo Is On The Verge Of Elite Status

Shin-Soo Choo has established himself over the last two-and-a-half seasons as an incredibly valuable (and perhaps under-appreciated) fantasy asset. Of the seven players who posted 20 HRs and 20 steals last year, only three (Hanley Ramirez, Carlos Gonzalez and Choo) came with a .300 batting average. In fact, Choo posted a 20/20/.300 line in 2009 as well, placing him in exclusive company. Choo’s elite BABIP (career .360) has been questioned by some, but his ability to maintain it over the course of three seasons (.367, .370, .347) proves its legitimacy...

2010 Batting Average on Balls in Play Leaders: What to Expect in 2011?

According to The Hardball Times Glossary, the exact formula for BABIP is: (H-HR)/(AB-K-HR+SF). The major league average for BABIP is usually around .300. In 2009, it was .299. The 2010 season saw the average BABIP fall slightly to .297. Generally, if a player’s BABIP is well-above the major league average, we can conclude he has experienced some amount of good luck. However, this is not always true. Some players such as Ichiro Suzuki (career .357) and Joe Mauer (career .344) have a knack for finding holes in the defense, which results in an inflated BABIP...
