Spring Training: DOs and DON'Ts

  • DO keep an eye on websites that track depth charts and projected lineups, such as RotoTimes, ESPN and others.
  • DON'T put too much faith in statistics; good or bad. Quantify the numbers. Is the player coming off injury (Conor Jackson)? Changing teams (Brad Penny)? Break-out season (Chris Coghlan/Aaron Hill)?
  • DO listen to what managers and coaches are saying about position battles, rookie phenoms and the overall state of their teams. A lot of information is put out there each day. You just have to know where to find it.
  • DON'T dig through box scores.
  • DO read the game summaries and the "notes". That's where the juicy tidbits are hiding.
  • DON'T overload yourself with "too much" information. More doesn't always mean better.
  • DO find the websites, blogs and resources that you trust and focus your time and effort there.
