Before I get to the fantasy links of the day, how often do you read or hear someone use the term "epic" to describe something they have read or seen? I think the term is used too often to describe ordinary work. I saw it used 3 times as I was checking out the baseball sites I visit daily.
Here are the fantasy links of interest for Wednesday:
Josh Hamilton is going on the DL, so Rotohardball's Zach Sanders looks at how this move will affect the fantasy value of his teammates. David Murphy, who I mentioned as a fantasy sleeper in the offseason, is one of the players discussed.
Rotohardball's Matthew Falzano asks the question: "Have you ever read a Jamey Carroll fantasy article? Dare you...". In this article, he takes a look at the fantasy impact of the Rafael Furcal injury and tells you what you can expect from Jamey Carroll while he is out.
More fantasy links after the jump:
Ron Cardno from Rotoprofessor tells you why he is done with Mark Reynolds....for good. He hits in a hitters park, so the power should be nice, but everything else hurts your fantasy team.
Tamer Chamma from RotoExperts.com takes a look at Who's Hot and Who's Not, and tells you who he is buying and selling from the list.
A Pirates fan over at Bucs Dugout, SB Nation's Pirates fan site, writes a lengthy fanpost giving his projections for Jose Tabata this year. As a Tabata owner, I would be very happy with his projection.
