Fantasy Baseball Happenings
The countdown to Opening Day is on. There are a couple of updates that I wanted to make sure you were aware of. First, the Mets signed OF Gary Sheffield. His value is limited though as he’ll be sharing time with Ryan Church. If you drafted Church hoping for a breakout player, you probably just lost that possibility. He still holds value, but you’re going to have to see how they handle the ABs. Fernando Tatis will also lose some ABs. There is the possibility that Sheff never gets going and gets shown the door.
Ichiro Suzuki landed on the DL for the first time in his career with a bleeding ulcer. He’s eligible to come off on April 15th. He will miss the Mariners’ first eight games. Ichiro should still put up solid numbers. I’m just worried his 100+ Run and 200+ Hit streaks could be in jeopardy.
