I've been working on a whole bunch of different stuff lately ...
Keeping with the prospect theme, I've started my third season of covering prospects over at InsiderBaseball.com. It is a subscription site, but if you're a serious fantasy player it is, without question, worth the money. Insider Baseball has all sorts of fantasy related content on a weekly basis, with tons of in-depth stat-crunching stuff that is pretty unique and valuable. My role is basically to cover the minor leagues like a blanket.
I'll be profiling a handful of prospects each week and will also be constantly updating a massive database of prospects that includes top-50 lists and skills grades for pitchers and hitters, team-based rankings, updates on players who make their big-league debuts, and a whole bunch of other cool stuff. Basically, if you're in a hardcore keeper league or eight, with a focus on acquiring young talent, this is exactly what you've been looking for.
So go check out the website: InsiderBaseball.com. I don't get a commission for you signing up and my salary doesn't go up if their readership increases, so I'm just genuinely recommending it as a worthwhile, subscription-based site.
And last but certainly not least, my latest Rotoworld column is ready for mass consumption. This one takes a look at some intriguing spring training battles that are going in various infields, including a look at the Twins' shortstop situation. Go check it out.
