ESPN taking Fantasy Baseball Serious this Year

Postby The Guru » Wed Apr 09, 2008 11:47 pm

I've been impressed with ESPN's coverage of fantasy baseball this year. They have a weekly hourly show on ESPNnews on Sundays. During Baseball 2night they usually have a fantasy segment with a expert giving their analysis.

Mattew Berry is ESPN's main fantasy expert and he is one of the few fantasy experts on TV that actually knows what he's talking about. I'm impressed that ESPN went out and got someone with as much knowledge and expertise. He doesn't talk about the obvious cliche things most experts talk about like start A-Rod, but really digs deep into the stats to find something not on the surface.

;-D ESPN and Matthew Berry

the only thing I dislike about Berry is that he advices people to pick up guys off the waiver wire who should of been drafted or who should of been picked up a long time ago. I think the other day he advised people to pick up guys like Aubrey Huff, Ben broussard(?), Billy Butler, Michael Bourn, Edison Volquez and Johnny Cueto. If Cueto's still available then you need to find a new league.

ESPN sucks like it does every year. So does Berry as always.

Try the Fantasy 411 (great insight) or Fantasy Baseball Mafia (great laughs) podcasts instead... Matthew Berry is a hack.

Mathew Berry is a far cry from a fantasy expert. Karabell can be ok at times but he isn't so great either. You could find a dozen guys on this forum who know more than these two clowns.

Matt Berry is OK, but ESPN stinks.

ESPN = 2008 San Francisco Giants. That's how good they are.

She is their injury analysis.
She adds insight to well injuries, she is alright I guess.
