FDH Fantasy Newsletter: Volume III, Issue XXII

Welcome to our 87th edition of the FDH Fantasy Newsletter, as we continue to bring you weekly fantasy sports updates in addition to our usual content on Our archive of past editions is available right here on The Blog and specific links to past editions are available on the front page of

In this week's edition, we bring you the Fantasy Baseball Buy Low, Sell High.


^ Adam Lind: The top AL OF on the 2010 FDH draft board heading into the season has bottomed out and looks ready to resume his ’09 role as the anchor of the Toronto offense.

^ Justin Masterson: This may seem like a strange one, but once his awful performance as a starter gets him pushed back to the bullpen where he belongs, he should serve as a valuable setup man in deeper leagues.

^ Wandy Rodriguez: Aside from his win total, which should remain low pitching for that putrid team, his other numbers should improve as they have been disproportionately affected by a few poor performances.

^ Mark Teixeira: His poor start has lingered longer than usual, leading to a greater likelihood that a frustrated owner could cut bait and make you very lucky indeed.

^ Javier Vazquez: Much like Masterson, this designation is predicated on a move, although in his case it would be back to the National League where he belongs once the Yankees finish deciding that they can’t afford his gas can every fifth day.

^ Matt Wieters: The defensive strides he wanted to make so desperately – the ones that would not come as easy – have come, leaving him now to focus again on his amazing offensive upside.


^ Adrian Beltre: How strong, exactly, is your conviction that he is for real right now?

^ Doug Fister: No pedigree, no strikeouts, no reason to believe.

^ Vladimir Guerrero: With his body having been so beaten-up in recent years, do you really think he can sustain his career-best pace?

^ Livan Hernandez: Fortunately, the fade we predicted in our last installment has begun – but not in a way that dampens his still-sweet overall numbers noticeably, so you still have time.

^ Tim Hudson: The last three seasons provide a pretty good roadmap of where he’s likely to end up – which is not wildly worse than where he’s at now, but it is definitely worse, providing an opportunity to take some profit if you can move him at his present perceived value.

^ Shawn Marcum: He’s in his first year back from Tommy John surgery and looking dominant thus far, but he’s also winging it for a team playing well above its head. So there’s two reasons to play it safe.

^ Jeff Niemann: He’s not missing many bats for a pitcher purported to be a full-blown late bloomer.
