Dobber Sports


The Fantasy Baseball Guide is updated through this morning. You can pick it up here. And don’t forget that DobberBaseball has content flowing daily now, thanks to seven great new writers added over the past month or so.


So I was looking through my one-year leagues (I’m in two of them). I had to spend a good hour on them because they’ve been neglected. My brutal start in the daily league with the gang at Yahoo has recovered enough for me to slide out of last place – I was 75 points out of first with 21 after two weeks, thanks to Fleury and Ward. I’ve crawled up to third last and 30-some odd points back.

In the DobberHockey Experts league I am sinking like a stone. Down to 11th now. Erik Karlsson is done, Scott Hartnell has been moved to IR and Miikka Kiprusoff is out. Yeah, that’ll do it. Also, the PM Bouchard experiment is over. It was over three weeks ago, but I was asleep at the wheel, and then I was on vacation…needless to say, lots of waiver wire work to be done. This is a deep 16-team league, so the pickings are slim. But I will share with you the players I bid on. Because I know that the other 15 owners of the DobberHockey Expert League don’t read my ramblings. Right? Here they are, in random order (I have to keep them guessing):

Mark Fraser (not really a top-notch Erik Karlsson replacement, eh? But he’s a plus-9 and he Hits – which is a category); Jack Skille; Tomas Tatar; Danny Taylor; Darcy Kuemper; Eric Fehr; Tomas Kundratek; Jakub Kindl; Paul Gaustad; Tyson Barrie; Jake Allen; Aaron Palushaj;
