Erik Siegrist is an FSWA award-winning columnist who covers all four major North American sports (that means the NHL, not NASCAR) and whose beat extends back to the days when the Nationals were the Expos and the Thunder were the Sonics. He was the inaugural champion of Rotowire's Staff Keeper baseball league. His work has also appeared at Baseball Prospectus.

The Long Game: Coming Into Focus

Up to this point, I've tried to keep this column aimed more at providing big-picture strategy and tactics tips for keeper and dynasty league owners rather than delving into the unfolding drama of the 2013 season itself. Personally I've always been more the 'teach someone to fish' type rather than the 'take someone out for a nice seafood dinner and never call them again' sort of guy. But with 10 full weeks of the year now in the books, it's time to switch gears a little and start looking at some of the big surprises of this season, guys who came cheap at the auction table or as free agents and are suddenly looking like foundation players for your 2014 roster, and try to figure out whether they're really worth hanging onto or not.

Of course, there'll be some fishing tips snuck in there too. It's just who I am. Don't try to change me, baby.
