Fantasy Baseball Sleepers: First Baseman

This article is featured today on Sports Buff.com (http://www.sportsbuff.com/) and takes a look at three potential fantasy sleepers at first base.


This is the first of a position-by-position series I wll be doing for the site. Next week, I will focus on some potentially overvalued first baseman.

Coming Soon!

Please take a look at the following sites that I will be contributing work to:

1. Fantasy Daddy (http://www.fantasydaddy.com) - I will be contributing fantasy baseball and NFL Draft coverage to the site. I am currently participating in a fantasy baseball mock draft with the site, and I will cover the Minnesota Vikings for the NFL Draft.

2. SportsBuff (http://www.sportsbuff.com) - I have been contributing NFL/fantasy football updates for the site this season, and now I will be doing some pre-season fantasy baseball pieces, starting with position-by-position breakdowns of potential sleepers and overvalued players. Look for those pieces most likely starting next week.

3. Rotowire (http://www.rotowire.com) - I have contributed to the the college football coverage on the site over the past two seasons, focusing on the ACC. I am now contributing college basketball updates, focusing on the Big Ten mostly.

As it warrants, I will post links to the articles I post on these sites, to provide a quick way to cut through the clutter and view my work.

A Salute to Randy Johnson

On Tuesday, Randy Johnson retired from the major leagues after 22 seasons at age 46. He started his career in 1988 with the Montreal Expos, and finished in 2009 with the San Francisco Giants.

"The Big Unit" had a 303-166 career record (a .646 winning percentage) along with a 3.29 career ERA, and became the 24th pitcher to reach the 300-win milestone in June 2009. His 4,875 career strikeouts rank second all-time to Nolan Ryan, and his 1.17 career WHIP is truly remarkable to go along with his career K/9 rate of 10.6.

Johnson also won five Cy Young Awards (1995, 1999-2002) was a 10-time All-Star and threw two no-hitters, including a perfect game in 2004. Johnson also teamed with Curt Schilling to help the Arizona Diamondbacks upset the New York Yankees in the 2001 World Series.

Among some of Johnson's underrated, and perhaps obscure, accomplishments are 100 complete games, 37 shutouts, three times finishing runner-up for the Cy Young Award, 4,135.1 innings pitched and 603 games started. He also hit 190 batters in his career.

Johnson was one of the most physically imposing pitchers of all-time, due largely to his 6'10" frame and unique appearance. Of course he had incredible stuff to go along with it.

With the specialization in today's game Johnson could be the last 300-game winner, at least for awhile. He is a shoe-in first ballot Hall of Famer, no doubt about it.


I'm now contributing to the college basketball coverage on Rotowire.com, with somewhat of a focus on the Big Ten. For the past two seasons, I have contributed to the site's coverage of college football and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).
