Trade Analysis: C.C. Sabathia for Ben Zobrist

Posted by on Apr 7, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Infielders, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 5 comments

One of my trusted followers on Twitter threw me what I considered to be the fantasy baseball advice equivalent of a hanging curve this morning. My follower has C.C. Sabathia in stacked pitching rotation that includes Tim Lincecum, King Felix, Dan Haren and Justin Verlander. Like the guy in the ESPN Fantasy Baseball commercial, he must’ve drafted 5 pitchers in a row. To his credit, at least one of them wasn’t Vicente Padilla. Moving on… He would be receiving Ben Zobrist in a 1-for-1 deal. In Yahoo! fantasy baseball, Zobrist is eligible at 2B, SS, and OF. The follower’s middle infield includes Howie Kendrick and Miguel Tejada with no support. His outfield options are much better with the likes of Manny Ramirez, Carlos Quentin, Johnny Damon, Hunter Pence and Carlos Beltran coming off the DL. So… should he make...

Brew Crew Pitch $100 Million To C.C. Sabathia

Posted by on Nov 3, 2008 in Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

The Milwaukee Brewers have made a formal offer to resign C.C. Sabathia, the guy who single handedly carried the team (and many of you fantasy owners) into the playoffs this season. After a terrible start to the season (with the exception of a few awesome two-start weeks) in Cleveland, Sabathia finished the year on fire in Milwaukee. He led the league in innings pitched (253) and went 17-10 with a 2.70 ERA, 251 strikeouts and a 1.12 ERA. Until November 13, the Brewers are the only team who can negotiate with Sabathia, and they are using that advantage to its fullest. While the reports are not confirmed, the Brewers are said to have offered Sabathia a four or five year deal in the $100 million range. What happens to Sabathia from a fantasy baseball perspective if he resigns with...

What The Cleveland Indians Got In The C.C. Sabathia Trade

We already laid out for the fantasy baseball ramifications of the Brewers trade for C.C. Sabathia. NL-only fantasy GMs get a top-quality pitcher. AL-only GMs lose a top-quality pitcher, and mixed leaguers continue to have a top-quality starting pitcher who should receive much better run support and even more strikeout opportunities. What exactly does the trade mean for the Cleveland Indians? The Tribe received three prospects and a player to be named in exchange for Sabathia. One prospect is a highly-touted future Major Leaguer. The other two you might not be sure about… but lucky for you, Fantasy Baseball Dugout is here to break it down. Matt LaPorta, Outfielder: LaPorta is the gem of this trade, a highly-rated prospect tearing it up in AA that could see some 2008 playing time as the Indians prepare for 2009. A 2007...

Fantasy Baseball Effects Of C.C. Sabathia, Brewers Trade

Posted by on Jul 7, 2008 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 1 comment

As it has been reported since Sunday, rumors of a trade between the Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Indians involving C.C. Sabathia seem to be coming true. The Indians lefty is rumored to be on the move to the Brew Crew for a collection of prospects, including outfielder Matt LaPorta, who suits up for AA-Huntsville. Full details of the trade should be released today. Unfortunately, fantasy owners of Sabathia in AL-only leagues really lose out here, because you will have a great pitcher (especially in two-start weeks) taken away from you with nothing to show for it. Once this trade becomes official, all fantasy owners in NL-only leagues should hit the waiver wire and put in their request for the newly eligible fantasy ace. Mixed league owners of Sabathia should continue playing him, as he was likely their first pitcher...

Yankee Pitcher Sabathia is The Biggest Loser

Posted by on Feb 16, 2011 in Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

And you probably thought that Derek Jeter was the Yankee Cap’n.  Apparently, it was C.C. Sabathia. In one of the most belly warming stories of early Spring Training, giant Yankee pitcher C.C. Sabathia has reported to camp 25 pounds lighter than last year!  That means that C.C. now tips the scales BELOW three bills. When asked about his secret for weight loss, Sabathia replied: “I stopped eating Cap’n Crunch every day,” Sabathia said. “I used to eat that stuff by the box.  I’m actually what it says on the back of my card now,” said the still less than svelte Yankee ace. It’s easy to see how eating a box of Cap’n Crunch can put on some lbs.  According to the Cap’n Crunch website, a serving of 3/4 Cup (27 g) contains 108 calories, 15 grams of which are...
