MLB Crystal Ball 2022

Opening day! When hope springs eternal for every major league baseball fan. Each team is tied for first (and last) place for what will almost assuredly be the final time. Which teams will rise, and which will fall? RotoValue has some predictions.

2014 MLB Projections Update

I’ve updated my 2014 MLB projections, incorporating more recent injury and depth chart information into my playing time estimates. Of course, since the season is two games old for the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, this isn’t entirely “fair” – usually I’d want preseason forecasts to be entirely preseason. But with a full week before other games,… Continue reading 2014 MLB Projections Update

Soriano Soars in Week 20

If Alfonso Soriano was available in your league on the waiver wire after his trade back to the Yankees, I hope you went all-out to win him.
