THT's Fantasy Archives
Sunday, May 31, 2009
Unless you’re reading through an RSS feed, you probably noticed that the THT Fantasy page looks a little bit different today. Most obviously, we’ve replaced the blog format with a more dedicated home page that we hope will make it easier for you to access THT Fantasy content.
Over the past many months, we have added a significant number of writers so as to provide you with as much high-quality content as we can. We’ve gone from essentially one full-time writer, the brilliant Derek Carty, to nine while adding columns such as “Confessions of a Fantasy Baseball Addict,” “Waiver Wire,” and “Roster Doctor.”
We now have coverage of the minor leagues by Matt Hagen, specialized fantasy games by Alex Zelvin, and the economics of fantasy baseball by Jonathan Halket. With this re-design, we’ve also added a new blog, called “Buy on the Rumor,” where our writers will comment on how breaking news will affect your fantasy baseball team. We think you’ll find it a very useful resource for staying ahead of your competition.
The hope is that this re-design makes it easier to access all this content. You’ll notice the latest posts from “Buy on the Rumor” on the left sidebar, as well as a box with all of our regularly updated content in the center of the page.

As you know, Clint Hurdle was fired a couple days ago and was replaced by bench coach Jim Tracy. So far, the fallout has seemed to impact Garrett Atkins, Clint Barmes, Troy Tulowitzki, and Ian Stewart the most. Tracy had very nice things to say about Atkins recently, who he has since promoted to the cleanup spot in the order (h/t Yahoo!'s RotoArcade):
"I sat over on the other side of the field in this ballpark for a number of years and I watched Garrett Atkins drive in over 200 and some odd runs over the course of a couple of different seasons. If we're going to turn some things around, he needs to be in the middle of our order...He just needs to find some green grass."
This spells bad news for Stewart, who will likely loose a little play time to Atkins. It also pushes Brad Hawpe to 5th in the order. Tracy's emergence also has had a positive impact on Clint Barmes, who has now batted 2nd in both games managed by Tracy. This pushes the struggling Tulowitzki down to 6th.
And if you're wondering — I don't imagine you are, but I'll continue anyway — these moves help me out in my leagues . I've got Barmes in LABR NL and Atkins in FSIC NL.
