Fantasy Baseball 2011: Hitting The Fantasy Links

Here are the fantasy links of interest for Friday:

Fangraph's Dave Cameron asks why power hitters have stopped striking out this year. It's early, but I noticed that trend the other day as well.

Baseball Nation's Rob Neyer writes about John Lackey's recent struggles, after a disappointing 2010 season, and wants to know if he will he get it together in 2011. I don't think he will.

Rotoworld's D.J. Short analyzes this week's top waiver wire gems for AL-only, NL-only and mixed leagues.

More fantasy links of interest after the jump:

Jared Stegall at Over the Monster writes that If Dice-K Continues To Struggle, Red Sox Could Call On Old Friend Pedro Martinez. Now that would be interesting.

John Sickels discusses Royals pitching prospect Aaron Crow in his Prospect of the Day article over at Baseball Nation and Minor League Ball. Sickels think Crow could eventually close in Kansas City should they trade Joakim Soria.

Rotograph's Mike Podhorzer discusses three AL starters who have started the year on a good note, and tells you whether they can continue to pitch as well going forward.

Rotowire's Dalton Del Don gives his thoughts on several players including Francisco Liriano and Tommy Hanson in his latest MLB Notes article. I was never high on Hanson and DDD hits the nail on the head as to why. His K rate is dropping.

John Sickels posted another All Questions Answered thread yesterday over at Minor League Ball. Head on over and check out his responses to the questions already asked.
