Before we look at all the potential closers going into the 2009 season, let me say this, “None of these schmohawks may be a closer by the time we get to May.” Sure, barring injury, some are sure things like Nathan, Lidge and Papelbon.Please, blog, may I have some more?
That is the number one searched phrase for fantasy baseball — Fantasy Baseball Yahoo. Personally, I think ESPN fantasy baseball is better. (Obviously, I think our fantasy baseball advice is better than Yahoo’s and ESPN’s.) Anyway, the fantasy baseballers (<–my Mom’s phrase) who are searching for “fantasy baseball Yahoo” don’t find Razzball.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I have to be honest, part of me hopes Kila Ka’aihue fails simply because his name is so difficult to spell. Does this make me an underachiever? Or does the fact I didn’t feel like looking up if underachiever was supposed to be hypenated make me an underachiever?Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve looked at some of other potential fantasy baseball 2009 keepers — 2009 rookies — doodes — already with our ongoing 2009 fantasy rookie series. Today (this afternoon, whenever you’re reading this) we look at the New York Yankees rookie center fielder, Brett Gardner.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We talked about picking up Travis Snider at the tail end of September, so you can imagine that we’re pro-Snider in 2009. (Or at least I am. Not sure why I always say we. I guess I got a We Complex.) I don’t want to get the hype machine going too rapaciously (Word of the Day and I’m not sure it’s used correctly), but Snider’s most similar comparisons are Chris Davis and Jay Bruce.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As some of you know, we developed our own Player Rater methodology called Point Shares about a year ago. Since then, it’s been one big poontrain….zooming past Statgeek Station. Perhaps it’s because my hat and eyewear aren’t goofy enough?
Anyway, we’ve done some informal comparisons in the past w/ ESPN but – after having a prolonged, dorktastic debate – I decided to take it one step further. I created a test where I pitted our Point Shares against two other player raters: ESPN and RotoTimes.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I took part in my second mock draft for 2009 and was hoping for a smoother draft this time around. I showed up on time and found the perfect 2009 draft iTunes mix of Fiddy and Sheryl Crow. So far, so fresh.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Schadenfreude has me tuned to The Pickup Artist every Sunday night. C’mon, Simeon, neg the target! Schadenfreude had me floating on a cloud for two days last week after I saw pictures from an old high school buddy’s wedding. He got fat and bald!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s easy to look back at a league you just lost in and come up with several ‘What ifs’ that would’ve led your team to victory.
I’m going to take a look at one of my expert league teams that sucked it – coming in 8th out of 12 in a league set up by Brock for Broglio and co-won by Tim Dierkes of RotoAuthority and Tim McLeod of Rotorob. Rotonomics finished a disappointing 10th, obviously hobbled by their Timlessness.Please, blog, may I have some more?
In an offseason of questionable moves for the Royals, they just one-downed themselves. Or is it one-upped? Coco Crisp was traded to the Royals for Ramon Ramirez. This trade says more about the state of baseball than much else. The Sox send a fourth OF/bench player to the Royals where he’ll be a starter and major key to their offense.Please, blog, may I have some more?
