Who is Wei- Yen Chen? | FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball
While Chen no longer has a very alluring K/9 rate, he could add some depth to your bench in deeper leagues.

The Baltimore Orioles’ rotation was a disaster in 2011, ranking dead last in the major leagues in innings pitched, ERA and FIP as highly-touted young arms like Brian Matusz and Chris Tillman crashed and burned. The O’s and new GM Dan Duquette signed Japanese starter Tsuyoshi Wada last month, and now they’re looking to the Far East for another lefty in hopes of improving those dismal numbers in 2012, signing Wei- Yen Chen of Nippon Professional Baseball to a three-year contract.

Farm Futures: 10 Draft Prep Commandments - RotoWire.com

Jason Collete of Rotowire gives some great draft day advice. I agree with the idea of not waiting to long for a player you want and targeting +800 OPS at every position...

New York Yankees no longer spending for free agents the way George Steinbrenner did - MLB News | FOX Sports on MSN

Payroll changes can certainly have a fantasy impact, and it appears that the Yankees are tightening the straps on their payrol. Great article here on Hal's new approach. Do you buy this new philosophy?


For New York Yankees in the post-George Steinbrenner era, the money simply doesn’t flow as freely (or recklessly) as it once did. New York Yankees no longer spending for free agents the way George Steinbrenner did...

Razball makes the case for Nolan Reimold as a post hype sleeper. In my last article for Faketeams he was on my list of great late round picks. Razball goes into some more depth here making it a great read!


In 267 ABs last year, he had 13 homers and 7 steals *whispering fast* while only hitting .247. So he’s no young Ichiro Suzuki, as someone who doesn’t know baseball would call him. I’m more interested in the homers and steals. Neither is out of line for him. He has sneaky 7-10 steal speed and his power knows no limits (<–total exaggeration). His 13 homers in 267 ABs is just about in line with what he’s capable of. His HR/FB of 14.8 doesn’t look obscene. If he can get 500 ABs, and at the age of 28 he should, he could easily reach 25 homers.
