BEAST DOME NATION.

Due to my success in Daily Fantasy Baseball and wanting to play Nate McLouth in Daily Leagues on Tuesday for the Fan Duel Championship.  I had to wait an extra two days to post the Waiver Wire.  I know as a Beast Dome member you are expecting more content.  And more content will come as the season continues, to the point to where we are back to everyday articles.  Right now I am in a Daily Fantasy Baseball Zone, I will snap out of it soon.

– REV

“I just want to say thanks Muntradamus, you will never know how much you’ve helped me all season long. When I first came to this site, it was just to gather some help and move on. I never knew I would stay around all season. Every week, there was new info for me to use in all 5 of the leagues I played in. Then there were those timeless one on one times when you suggested a player that turned out to be a beast all season long. And even when you didn’t answer my question, your suggestions to others helped me. You know your stuff man, lol. I also want to thank all the members, Beast Dome Nation, namely Blue, who also helped me a lot. And now that my baseball season is or has come to a end, it’s on to Football, and you’ve haven’t missed a beat there either. So, thanks again. I ended the season with 2 Championship teams and 3 – 2nd place teams. In one league I was in first place since week 5 and stayed there all season long. That’s how much you info helped me. Not to many people can go through a season like that, IMO. So, thanks dude, you are the man. May you continue to be successful and I’ll definitely be here soaking up all your wisdom. God Bless you, and thanks again.”

PLAYERS ALREADY MENTIONED THAT SHOULD BE OWNED

JOHN BUCK (WEEK 3) 90% Owned on CBS.

NICK HUNDLEY – SDP (12 % Owned)

Stats as of 5/1: .329/3 HR/11 RBI

Hard to find a catcher that is hitting over .300 on the waiver wire at this part of the season.  Yes Hundley’s 3 Home Runs seem a bit fluky at the moment, as well as the .300 batting average.  But Fantasy Baseball is a long season, which means there will be plenty of streaky players to add/drop throughout the season.  Nick Hundley offers you the most season long upside if your team is begging for a desperation option.

TRAVIS HAFNER (WEEK 2)44% Owned on CBS.
LANCE BERKMAN (WEEK 2) 82% Owned on CBS.

 15% Owned on CBS.

 

COREY HART – 1B/OF – MIL (58% Owned)

Stats as of 5/1: DNP

Corey is expected to be back by the end of May following knee surgery.  If you have the roster space to stash a player that could explode for 30 HR/100 RBI potential over the course of a full season, Hart is your man.  When he comes off the DL that 58% will be much closer to 90% at the end of June.  I would not wait as Hart can do some serious damage in that stacked Brewers Lineup.

Make sure you keep an eye on Corey and add him the second your team can take a player on your bench.  He goes into BEAST MODE at times.

LUIS VALBUENA – 2B/3B – CHC (16% Owned)

Stats as of 5/1: .242 Average/5 HR/12 RBI/1 SB

Valbuena has been the man of the year for the Chicago Cubs.  Out of nowhere Luis who was a Fantasy Sleepers a handful of years ago with the Indians, is now finally putting it all together on a team he was not supposed to be an everyday player.  Luis has 4 of his 5 HR’s in the past two weeks and after Tuesday looks to show no signs of slowing down.

Great Sleeper with a lot of upside.

NATE MCLOUTH – BAL (43% Owned)

Stats as of 5/1: .346/2 HR/8 RBI/8 SB

What if I were to tell you that I had Nate McLouth ranked higher than all the other Fantasy Experts in my preseason Rankings.  Would you believe me?

NateM

 

McLouth got a nice boost when Brian Roberts hit the DL.  Which opened up the leadoff spot full-time, and Nate reminded us of his Pittsburgh Pirate days right out of the gates when he was once a 20 HR/20 SB threat.  Roberts is expected back soon, but with the way McLouth is hitting, he will be hitting leadoff the rest of the 2013 season.  Make sure you grab Nate and don’t look back.

 

MICHAEL BRANTLEY – CLE (28% Owned)

Stats as of 5/1: .285/1 HR/9 RBI

Michael Brantley was a popular Fantasy add in 2012 before ending his season abruptly with a sports hernia.  He is not going to wow you, but a 10 HR/20 SB season is written all over Michael, and he makes more of a daily play than a seasonal play at this stage in the game.  If you want the better seasonal player, look no further than Drew Stubbs who was mentioned last week.

 

CHRIS CARTER – HOU (36 % Owned)

Stats as of 5/1: .226/6 HR/14 RBI

It seems like no matter how hard I try, a Houston Astro will always end up as a nice Fantasy Option off the Waiver Wire.  If you can grab Chris Carter at this stage of the game, you could be stealing a player with 30+ HR potential when the season is all said and done.  Carter has amazing power and can take just about every lefty yard if he wanted to.  I would make it a point to grab Carter if you are desperate for power, he is Corey Hart in a bottle.

FELIX DOUBRTON – BOS (56% Owned)

Stats as of 5/1:  4.24 ERA/3-0/29 K (23 INN)

With Queen Felix you get more than just strikeouts and a high ERA.  You get a team that will give him so much run support, that 6 INN/4 ER/5 K will be more than enough to earn a win.  With the way Queen Felix is racking up K’s now, he is not only a must-own, he is also a must-start.  While the matchups are always a concern with Felix who seems to run into trouble more often than not.  If the Sox are playing a mediocre team, Doubront has an amazing chance to put up better numbers than Cole Hamels.

 

 

CHRIS TILLMAN – BAL (30% Owned)

Stats as of 5/1:  4.72 ERA/1-1/25 K (26 INN)

 This preseason I ranked Tillman higher than any expert.  He was simply the Fantasy Baseball Pitching Playoff MVP of the American League, (Kris Medlen – National League).

Tillman2

 

All you need to know about Tillman is word for word what I wrote about him in my preseason report.

“Chris Tillman was the best pitcher in the AL during the Fantasy Baseball Playoffs in 2012. 8 INN shutouts came naturally, and fantasy owners were loving the rookie out of nowhere who finished the season 9-3 with a 2.95 ERA. The K Rate is projected to be below 150. But he is good enough to make up for it.”

Tillman’s last two starts.  12.2 INN/3 ER/10 K.  He is heading in that direction.

  1. Tillman is on my waiver wire…..pick him up or take the trade for Mujica to get Ian Kennedy

    Basically, who does better….Kennedy or Tillman from here on out.

  2. On my wire…i have Kennedy for a Fri Claim, Medlan and Tillman. I grabbed Tillman for a matchup against Blanton tomorrow. Will drop for Medlan when I can claim for next day. Long run Kennedy is ranked higher.

    How does your team look for saves against other teams in your league? Motte is in the process of deciding if he’s having surgery and still not throwing 100%. Mujica is doing a nice job, might not want to give up on him yet.

    Muntz’s Season rankings has Kennedy higher than both Tillman and Meldon. For my team, my pitching is suspect, playing for the batting categories , era, whip, saves. Can’t afford riding out Kennedy, owners keep dropping him so I’m watching for when he gains control.

    1. …forgot to mention I had Chen tonight…ouch…will need a win tomorrow. I do like Tillman. Medlan going against Washington (Haran)

  3. Dave…

    Yeah, I spot started Chen too and Lee had a poor outing as well. Bad day yesterday for the Arms on my squad. I ended up dealing Lawrie/Wilhelmsen for Cueto/Madson this morning. Hanley will be my starting 3B and with Ervin Santana sliding into my #5 spot with the Cueto acquisition, I feel real good with my starters: Verlander/Lee/Dickey/Cueto/Santana and who knows, maybe Josh Johnson will turn things around for me but I’ll hold onto him for a while. I could pick up Brandon Morrow though…not sure if dropping Johnson just yet is the right move.
    I like Medlan though over Kennedy. I think he turns it aound.

  4. Mike
    Ramirez looked good the last two games, i tried to watch most of it (on east coast). You might miss Wilhem, but keep an eye of RP’s popping up. I dropped Hanrahan to be able to rotate a pitcher for this week. The plan is to pick him back up maybe on Sunday.

    Based on Muntz article, I grabbed Doubrount for tomorrow, the plan is to drop him for Kennedy for the weekend. Medlan was claimed, usually it’s just me and another owner using the waiver as an extension of our pitching staff. At this point I need the spot to Steam.

    For this match up team needs K’s and W’s, ERA and WHIP is beyond hope.

    SP: Dickey, Loshe, Harvey plus stream spot
    RP: Rivera, Bailey, League, Wilhem, Street
    rest are Batters,

    Good luck rest of the week, off on a camping trip, Teams on Auto with a couple of quick checks.
