2015 FANTASY BASEBALL

ALL BEAST DOME TEAM (1st Half)

By Muntradamus

BEAST DOME NATION.

The MLB All-Star Break is here, which means this is the only time of the year there are not daily numbers for me to analyze. It also means it is time to take a step back and look at the first half of the year.

The general draft strategy this year was to grab Hanley Ramirez in Round 1. Follow it up with Jacoby Ellsbury in round 2. Aim for Lester in Round 3. Then fill out your Infield with Power. Outfield with speed. While grabbing sleeper pitchers along the way.

The players below were mentioned in the Draft Strategy as well as having a higher Ranking than the expert Field. If you took the best of the best and read all the content on Muntradamus.NET, you will have a majority of the:

C

BRIAN MCCANN – NYY
2015: 14 HR/55 RBI/.259 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #8

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.50 PMMcCann was a clear target of the draft strategy. A catcher that was going after the names of Yan Gomes and Devin Mesoraco, I told VIP members to wait for those names to pass by and then jump on McCann. With 14 HR and 55 RBIs, he is putting up a Buster Posey type of season. Minus the batting average.

 

1B

MARK TEIXEIRA – NYY
2015: 22 HR/60 RBI/.240 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #36

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.39 PMEasily the best call of the Fantasy Baseball Sports world and continuing to look better as the season progresses. Teix is turning back the clock and is on pace to have a historic season as he heads into the ALL-STAR BREAK #1 in the American League in RBIs. This is the 2nd season in a row I have been on my own Island supporting Teix. This season I loved him more than ever as he felt stronger than ever this offseason with his new gluten free diet. There is no price tag you can pay for that type of Fantasy Advice.

DUSTIN PEDROIA – BOS
2015: 9 HR/33 RBI/.306 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #8

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.19 PMEveryone gave up hope on Pedroia. I saw him as an excellent source of rare power and RBI potential at the 2B position. Everything was shaping up nicely for a big 2nd half before Pedroia went down. He Despite missing the last few weeks he is only 1 off 2nd Place for HRs at the position. Still a lot of 2nd half of the season left and Pedroia will keep your team fighting in the pack when he is healthy.

 

3B

CHRIS DAVIS – BAL
2015: 19 HR/52 RBI/.238 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #9

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.23.44 PM

Cover athlete of BEAST DOME. Chris Davis was a vital part of the draft strategy and a MUST-DRAFT player. So far Crush has been on another Crush season with 19 HR and 52 RBI heading into the break. The batting average is not killing you at .240 and his HR potential has yet to reach his ceiling. Last week he had 2 HRs robbed from him, and most importantly he has responded to that with a HR a few days before the break. Chris Davis will still be fighting if not on top of the HR Champion Crown this season. Just wait until he gets Barry Bonds hot.

SS

HANLEY RAMIREZ – BOS
2015: 19 HR/46 RBI/.273 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #3

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.18.33 PMThe first article I wrote for the 2015 Fantasy Baseball season was to take Hanley with the #2 Overall Pick after Mike Trout. Call this my Arian Foster Pick.

HANLEY BEING HANLEY

Hanley Ramirez has been worth the #2 Pick and then some. Not only because Fantasy Sites like ESPN/YAHOO/CBS and every other were promoting Jose Abreu, Paul Goldschmidt, Andrew McCutchen, Clayton Kershaw, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Cabrera.

While everyone was doing that. You grabbed Hanley Ramirez. You have a SS who has more HRs than all those players above, minus Stanton. You have a player at a rare position who is on pace for 40+ HRs despite being injured in the 1st Half. You have the player you want, and that is what Makes BEAST DOME the BEAST.

 

OF

BRETT GARDNER – NYY
2015: 10 HR/42 RBI/15 SB/.302 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #33

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.12.55 PMI wish I could give my #1 Fantasy Spot to Jacoby Ellsbury who I made a vital part of the draft strategy. What I loved about Ellsbury, I also liked about Gardner. He has been filling in very nicely for Jacoby as a Poor Mans version of him, and if you happened to take Brett and Ellsbury, you did not skip too much of a beat.

 

OF

GREGORY POLANCO – PIT
2015: 3 HR/23 RBI/17 SB/.233 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #43

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 11.04.14 PM

Polanco fits the mold of exactly what the Draft Strategy was calling for. A speed OF who fell late, Polanco has been nothing short of a guy who has 45+ SB potential. Those HRs can reach double digits when it is all said and done as well.

 

OF

CURTIS GRANDERSON – NYM
2015: 13 HR/29 RBI/5 SB/.244 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #69

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.11.22 PMNot in love with this pick as my target OF Options all got hit by the injury bug like Holliday and Ellsbury to name a few, but Curtis Granderson has been a great late round snag. The guy is on pace for 25+ HRs and 10+ SBs. What more can you ask for in a late round pick who I was telling all VIPs to grab to fill out your OF.

DH

ALEX RODRIGUEZ – NYY
2015: 18 HR/51 RBI/.279 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #28

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.07 PM

I had A-Rod much higher at #12 on my Muntradamus.NET Rankings, but my schedule ran out on me as I was launching Franchise on the same day.

The day I heard A-Rod was working with Barry Bonds in the off-season and launched a Spring HR. There was nothing more I needed to see. A-Rod was worth the investment and has been a strong 3B option all season putting up Chris Davis numbers.

MICHAEL PINEDA – NYY
2015: 9 WINS/3.64 ERA/111 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #47

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.09.58 PMPineda is not looking like a likely candidate for 20 Wins. He is also looking at a pitcher who will have a K Rate of 9 per 9 INN. Pineda is pitching at a world class level, and he has been a coverman of the BEAST DOME pitching staff since the start of his Yankee career when everyone doubted he would ever be the same.

SP #2

AJ BURNETT – PIT
2015: 7 WINS/2.11 ERA/100 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #69

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.09.22 PMWhile everyone was going against AJ Burnett because of his age, I knew he was the heart of the steel city and the Pirates were going to need a big season from their vet in order to compete. So far he is murdering it and AJ Burnett is going superstar mode right before our eyes.

Look for AJ to continue to BEAST the 2nd half of the season as the Pirates make their playoff push.

 

SP #3

YOVANI GALLARDO – TEX
2015: 7 Wins/2.67 ERA/76 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #93

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.08.25 PMEveryone was doubting Gallardo because of his injury riddled career. I saw Texas as a stop where he could re-birth himself and go Vintage Yovani. So far the Strikeouts have not been their like the past, but he as dominant as ever carrying a Texas Rangers Pitching Staff that is on it’s last arm.

SP #4

CLAY BUCHHOLZ – BOS
2015: 7 WINS/3.26 ERA/107 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #89

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.07.49 PMClay Buchholz has been everything superstar, and all VIP members were told clearly he is a great starter to get at the end of your draft. This guy is pitching like he is Michael Pineda and drafted for a fraction of the price. Everyone doubted Clay, but I knew he had no choice to be a superstar as the staff Ace for the Red Sox.

SP #5

FRANCISCO LIRIANO – PIT
2015: 5 WINS/2.98 ERA/119 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #41

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.04.30 PMYou either trust Liriano or you don’t. I decided long ago that I trust Francisco as there are not many that are as electric. The days of inconsistency from Minnesota are long gone, and now you have a stud ace.

DREW STOREN – WAS
2015: 27 SAVES/1.89 ERA/38 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #16

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 11.28.13 PMLast season it was Francisco Rodney who I called to have a BEAST season and ended up leading the MLB in saves. This season Drew Storen is taking his place and is an easy favorite to finish #1 the rest of the way. Pays to be a BEAST VIP.

FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ – MIL
2015: 19 SAVES/1.41 ERA/37 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #21

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 11.28.28 PMNobody believes in K-Rod like they used too. I still see flashes of the old Angels closer who almost lead them to a World Series Title. The Brewers are not winning games this season until lately, K-Rod has been cleaning up since. As long as there is no yard sale, this pick will continue to look better and better.

CLEVELAND INDIANS ML (-180)

CLEVELAND INDIANS RL -1.5 (+120)

There are many reasons to take the Indians today against the Rays. For starters, strong starting pitchers have been killing it against Tampa Bay all season long. Even when you look at a pitcher like Garrett Richards who completely lost his stuff (2 Starts. 6.2 INN/9 ER), last week goes into Tampa and throws 7 INN/2 ER/7 K to get right back on track.

1555319_588390924631091_3553229658862358606_n

The Rays do not matchup well against strong right handing pitching. Corey Kluber last years AL CY Young Winner is exactly that, strong right handed pitching. While Kluber does pitch much better with Yan Gomes behind the plate, who is right now questionable for today. I am confident he will still dominate the Rays offense that lacks a strong consistent hitter outside of Evan Longoria. Longoria has been struggling mightly as of late and only has 1 HR since May 23rd.

Kluber has had a rough month with 0 wins and a 3.60 ERA, but I am going with the ‘Garrett Richards’ clause from above. Tampa Bay is a team where strong starting pitchers go to get their mojo back. Nobody on Tampa has ever hit a HR against Kluber, no active player has more than 3 hits against Kluber. Look for him to return to his vintage form and shutdown the Rays with a lot of Strikeouts.

On offense for Cleveland, Erasmo Ramirez is pitching. Even though Erasmo has been able to pitch like a stud with a 3-0 Record and 1.65 ERA in the month of June. This is easily his worst matchup as he will be going up against a lot of strong lefty hitters in Kipnis/Moss/Santana (Switch)/Brantley. One strong Inning from that offense and this game will be out of reach instantly. This game will be very similar to ERAsmo’s outing against the Athletics when ERAsmo allowed 5 ER in 6 INN.

On top of everything. This game is in Cleveland. Look for the Indians to bounce back at home after losing the Series opener on Friday.

*6/5

Q1. What pitcher will you be including in all or most of your daily lineups Friday and why?

Wade Miley

 (P, BOS) – $7,000. RESULT. 7.33 INN/6 K/2 ER/Win
“Miley has a nice Sleeper matchup against the Athletics. While Oakland had a nice offensive series against Detroit pitching, I expect Miley to stun the Athletics hitters with his inconsistent electric pitches at home. Power slider, cut fastball, I am going for the upside as there is no pitcher I would put safe money on for Friday night.”
Muntradamus (BEASTDOME)

Q2. What hitter will you be including in all or most of your daily lineups Friday and why?

Giancarlo Stanton (OF, MIA) $5,300. RESULT. HR/RBI/RUN/1B.

“If Giancarlo Stanton was on the Rockies and played 50% of his games in Coors Field. We would not only have a new HR champion, but possibly the best HR hitter of all time. Most importantly the #1 pick in season formats. Good luck Eddie Butler.”

Muntradamus (BEASTDOME)

 

*6/12

Q1. What pitcher should owners look into picking up that is owned in less than 25% of Yahoo Leagues?

 

Ivan Nova (SP – NYY)

 Yahoo Ownership – 3%

“All he does is win, win, win, no matter what… but has never started more than 30 games in a season because of health. In Super Nova’s two best years back in 2011 and 2012, he averaged 28 starts with 14 wins and only 6 losses. His ERA/Strikeouts/WHIP can be all questionable and sometimes you get him on a good day, sometimes you don’t. Elbow Surgery is recoverable while you’re young, and 28 on his birth certificate says he has something left in the tank as he is reaching 95 mph on the gun coming back to the majors next week.”
Muntradamus (BEASTDOME)

 

Q2. What hitter should owners look into picking up that is owned in less than 25% of Yahoo Leagues?

 

Brock Holt (1B,2B,3B,SS – BOS)
Yahoo Ownership – 19%
“So you want to be a Brock Superstar? Qualify at every position besides catcher? Bat second and play nearly everyday for one of the best offenses on paper in MLB? There will be a time where you need a quick sub in your infield. Instead of looking up someone down the line on the wire, just add Brock Holt now and plug him in anywhere on the infield. Expect those run totals and batting average to tick up as this guy gets on base with the best of them. He is too valuable to see the bench for the Red Sox.”

CHRIS TILLMAN – BAL – SP

2 Wins/20 K/6.23 ERA

Chris Tillman has been a BEAST DOME legend since his first days with the Orioles. He was heavily recommended as a MUST-START player down the stretch of his 2012 campaign, and was followed up in 2013 as the Highest Ranked on FantasyPros by myself when he finished with a 16 win season along with joining the American League in the All-Star game. This 2015 season has not started out strong for Tillman who has pitched well against Tampa Bay, and been crushed against everyone else. Still, Tillman is a confidence type of pitcher and he will build off of his nice start from Friday allow 2 ER over 7 INN with 7 Ks. Chris Tillman is an ACE and the Orioles need him to pitch like one to compete in the AL EAST.

His asking price is very low and it is best to not make him the centerpiece of the deal and instead a side dish to an offensive need. Some owners may want to see what happens, you need to grab him now while you can at this low value.

BRETT CECIL – TOR – RP

2 Saves/8 K/4.50 ERA

Cecil started the season rough and was even pulled from the Closers job early. Recently the Blue Jays gave him his old spot back and he shutdown the Yankees for a Save to get his confidence back. First thing I have to say, the Jays have a very weak bullpen. So even though he lost the job temporarily, there is nobody in that bullpen who can hold down the job. Now that we got that out of the way let us talk about why you should trade for Cecil.

1. He is a Strikeout King. Even though his numbers do not show it now. This is a closer who can easily reach 65-70 Ks before the season is done.

2. The Jays are playing as bad as they can play. With Reyes injured and none of the Big 3 (Donaldson/Bautista/Encarnacion) doing much. The Jays are slipping away and a lot of people are giving up faith. Once these guys turn it on and Reyes is healthy, the wins will be there for the Jays, which means the 27+ Saves will be there for Cecil.

Buy him Low while his asking price is a stick of gum and a one hit wonder.

NEFTALI FELIZ – TEX – RP

3 Saves/12 K/4.76 ERA

The Ranges have started this season just about as bad as any team can start. They lost their ace Derek Holland in the 1st INN of his home debut. Adrian Beltre who is a KING at 3B is doing nothing. Prince Fielder still has lost all his power since going vegetarian and Choo/Andrus are not doing much. Though out of nowhere, this team may be finding their groove after their comeback win against AL West leaders Houston Astros in Houston. It was the type of comeback that can lead to a hot stretch. When that hot stretch comes for the Rangers, so will the saves for Neftali who has a save in 1/3 of the teams wins. You do the math to see how that adds up over the course of a 82-82 season. Okay I will do the math, around 27 Saves. This guy has All-Star potential when he is on his game.

TAIJUAN WALKER – SEA – SP

1 Win/23 K/8.73

Maybe on your local Waiver Wire. BEAST DOME legend Taijuan “Sky” Walker is doing just about everything he can do to be on a Waiver Wire. He has had 2 BEAST starts, and 3 starts that will make you turn quicker on him than Mariah Carey did on Eminem. Still, there is reason to hold faith with young Skywalker. First, this guy has unhittable pitches. I know the numbers above would say the complete opposite, but this is a guy who threw 20+ scoreless INN during Spring Training and has dominated multiple times in his young MLB Career. Skywalker is so good, the Mariners traded away Michael Pineda to clear room for him in the rotation.

The season is young and the Mariners are desperate to have him find his groove. Even if he does go to the minors for a couple of starts, you still have to hold on and wait for this kid to find his stuff. We are talking potential 7 INN/0 ER/9K per start when he is on his game.

1555319_588390924631091_3553229658862358606_n

SELL

BARTOLO COLON – NYM – SP

5 Wins/34 K/2.90 ERA

Don’t look now. Bartolo Colon is a top 5 pitcher according to CBS. After another dominating performance against the Orioles on Monday, it is easy to sucker people in and trade Bartolo for actual value. Colon has somehow been putting up solid numbers for a few consecutive seasons after it appeared all was gone when he was caught in the steroid scandal a few years back. Colon still throws in the high 80s very low very low 90s, and still is making a living being a ground ball BEAST on the mound. Now that he recorded a 9K game, which is very high for Bartolo. The time has come to trade him away for a good pitcher. I am talking Gio Gonzalez good and if you really want to make things interesting. Go after Francisco Liriano and you can probably get a little more.

ANDREW MILLER – NYY – RP

11 Saves/23 K/0.00 ERA

These numbers are as good as it gets right here. There is no going up in value, there is just continuing this pace which could easily land Andrew Miller as the top closer this season. While everything seems perfect now, it is a good time to Sell as High as possible and even land a STUD BEAST in Kenley Jansen or go after a struggling Neftali Feliz and get a BEAST starting pitcher as well.

The truth is, Dellin Betances is probably the best setup man in the MLB. If anything were to happen with Andrew Miller as far as minor injury, to a couple of blown saves in a row. The door is open for Betances and it may never come back to Andrew Miller. While at this point it would have to be something drastic for Miller to lose the job, the point is once the thought of Betances entering the closers role becomes a reality. That can be the end of Andrew Miller and his #1 overall RP value that he currently owns.

 

JEURYS FAMILIA – NYM – RP

11 Saves/17 K/1.88 ERA

Let us keep this in the BEAST Familia. While Jeurys may be a BEAST and at times can be unhittable. The Mets are not this good, and eventually the Marlins and Nationals are going to overtake them in the NL East and then the Mets will be battling with Atlanta and beating Philly. Familia is a good closer talent wise, but now is the time to sell high and focus on improving something your team needs. It may be a SS (Nobody in the BEAST DOME NATION struggling at SS) or it may just be an upgrade at catcher. Point is, now is the time to move Familia while he has this type of value, especially if you are in a shallow league where Feliz and Cecil may be on the Waiver Wire.

JAKE ODORIZZI – TB – SP

3 Wins/32 K/2.21 ERA

Once a young superstar coming up in the Tampa Farm System, Odorizzi is finally showing off that BEAST potential. After back-2-back strong starts and a good season overall, Jake is throwing numbers that makes Max Scherzer owners wonder if they should waited on pitching. While Odo is looking like a BEAST now, and has been great against the Red Sox in his career. The AL East is too challenging and Jake is more likely to face tougher times from here then improve on these numbers. Of course the Wins and the Strikeouts will rise with more starts, but that ERA should creep into the mid 3.50 range when it is all said and done. It does not help that the Rays are easily the worst team in the AL East which means that losing attitude will soon be with all those players.

If you can land Gio Gonzalez or even last week’s mention in Yordano Ventura, pull the trigger and do not look back. Odorizzi is good, but consider this my Trevor Bauer pick.
