Fake Teams Hitting the Fantasy Links

Here are Thursday's fantasy links of interest:

Baseball Nation's Grant Brisbee writes that Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton has a 6.14 ERA and hasn't pitched well since last June, but manager Don Mattingly doesn't seem likely to make a change despite a battered relief corps. The rest of the bullpen is worse, if you can believe it.

Baseball Nation's Rob Neyer writes that the Los Angeles Dodgers were placed under the control of Bud Selig and Major League Baseball today. It's a good day for Dodgers fans. We are all one day closer to a new owner.

More fantasy links of interest after the jump:

John Sickels writes about Padres third base prospect James Darnell in his Prospect of the Day over at Baseball Nation and Minor League Ball. Darnell could be up in 2012.

John Sickels writes about several prospects in his Minor League Notes for April 20, 2011 including Erik Davis, Ryan LaMarre, Melky Mesa, and Steve Parker.

Rotohardball's Zach Sanders talks about Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie, who has been playing more of late, and says you should adjust your fantasy roster accordingly.

David Gonos from writes about how he would change the rules for fantasy leagues, including no NL or AL-only leagues. I disagree. I enjoy only leagues more than mixed leagues.

Mark Cooper from writes about some prospects that should be on your radar including Shelby Miller and Neil Ramirez, among others.

Nicholas Minnix from talks about some players in the free agent pool that you should consider picking up.

Rotoprofessor writes about Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and says you should try to buy low on him. There's that "buy low" tag again. I don't think it exists.

Fangraph's Bradley Woodrum takes a look at the hitters with the lowest BABIP so far this year. The list includes Jorge Posada, Carl Crawford and Jason Heyward.

Rotoworld's Eno Sarris ( does he write everywhere?) gives up his closer rankings along with some guys who cans steal a base.
