Even though the 2014 fantasy baseball draft is months away, there is a lot of great fantasy baseball content being churned out right now. Each Friday we’ll be linking 5 of these pieces go fantasy baseball content from around the web. Here we go:
1. Outliar Baseball has a great piece that summarizes last week’s World Series pitching. Specifically, which WS pitchers had the best z-Contact%. In other words, which pitches throw the the zone, yet hitters still can’t get the bat on the ball. It’s a fun primer if you want to begin to think how Pitching F/X impacts fantasy baseball. Give it a read.
2. Now our links shift from saber metrics into the territory of a good ‘ole fashioned player profile. Player profiles are an important read as a fantasy baseball player researches for the upcoming 2014 draft. Our first player profile link is a comparison of Brandon Phillips and Dan Uggla. It’s a solid read. Check it out at Liquid Tomahawks.
3. Beyond the Boxscore is excellent if you enjoy some stout statistical analysis that still goes down smooth. Here they take a look at Alex Gordon and how the Royals left fielder actually has a reverse platoon split. Read it here.
4. We close out our 5 with 2 links from The Baseball Professor. Bryan Curley does a great job of profiling Starling Marte of the Pittsburg Pirates. What can you expect of his 2014 fantasy baseball value? Read here to find out.
There you go, 5 links from some of the best fantasy baseball sources around. Enjoy the World Series pitching recap and the 4 player profiles. We’ll have five more fantasy baseball links coming next Friday.
