Best Fantasy Columnist??

Postby DetroitTigers » Tue Jan 08, 2008 12:44 pm

Do any of you have a favorite fantasy baseball columnist that you think gives the best advice or predictions?? Guys like Eric Karabell of ESPN or Brandon Funston from Yahoo?? I don't agree with many things Eric Karabell says, i think Brandon Funston is ok, but my favorite is probably the guys (Mike Siano, Cory Schwartz) from MLB Radio that have their fantasy baseball radio show on every day at 11:00 during the season (Fantasy 411). Any thoughts.....

fantasy 411 is definitely a solid show. Honestly I dont have a one favorite. Brad Evans is pretty hit or miss, plus he sells his attitude more than his smarts. I like Matthew Pouliot of rotoworld. Really the people I like the best are here at the cafe ;-D

Agree on Pouliot, disagree on Karabell (I like him), and agree that the Cafe posters are the best :-B

I think the worst fantasy columnist is Matthew Berry (sorry it's fantasy football instead of baseball). His recommendations are way off and he puts things about his dating life in his articles and crap like that. And he thinks he's funny. I think Eric Karabell always talks about passing on good players in draft for cheaper players in the later rounds. You should pass on overhyped players to an extent, but he always seems to recommend taking someone with no upside. Just my opinion. I'll have to check out this Matthew Pouliot guy....

I like Peter Gammons most of the time and the Baseball Columnist is back , easily enough http://www.thebaseballcolumnist.com

He had a different site last year, not sure what happened, something about a legal issue with his website, but now he's back. He usually does awesome Fantasy columns and is great at picking Sleepers.

As for his baseball columns, he is very honest and funny a lot of the times. It is worth checking out Sunday nights or whenever he does it. He used to do a Baseball Photoshop each week, which was hilarious, and i emailed him and he said he will bring that back as well soon. Those are so funny.

Matthew Pouliot and Peter Kreutzer are my favorites. Although not really fantasy, Will Caroll is another favorite of mine.
