I went into TurboTax and entered the Marlins $100 million payroll going into last season, subtracted Jose Reyes, Hanley, Josh Johnson, Buehrle, Bonifacio, Buck, Infante, Gaby, Anibal, Heath Bell and Ozzie Guillen’s salary, then I added in Gorkys, Ruggiano, Giancarlo, Wade LeBlanc, Eovaldi, Jacob Turner, Adeiny Hechavarria and Yunel’s salary and it says the Marlins can get an EBT card for their cash assistance benefits.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ll write a 2013 fantasy rookie post about Trevor Bauer, too. It’s inevitable. Even after Bauer was called up to the majors and produced a 6+ ERA, his stuff was still undeniable. There will be time to go over Bauer. Let’s shine some light on Tyler Skaggs so he doesn’t remain Barbara Hersey to Bauer’s Bette Midler.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Leonys Martin said this recently in an interview, “I’m gonna be 25 years old in March. In Triple-A last year, I hit 12 homers, stole 10 bases and hit for a .359 average in 231 at-bats while rocking a .422 OBP.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Even with Petco’s fences coming in, I’m really liking what this middle-aged journeyman pitcher… *checking notes* Me to myself, “I don’t think this is the Adam Eaton, 4+ ERA pitcher.” Myself to me, “Jesus, then don’t write about the pitcher, or people will think you have no idea what you’re talking about.” Me to myself, “Chill, Myself!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Annoyed and unable to understand fantasy owners happiness in owning a Padre hitter, I made plans to deprive fantasy owners of their Roast Beast and fantasy pennant championship celebrations. Then someone warmed my Grinch heart. Who? Nope, Chase Headley. If Headley can do it, I say anyone can do it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I almost didn’t write this post. Not because I was trapped under a Pizza Hut/Taco Bell Combo and unable to move my arms, but because Jurickson Profar will either be a huge boost for 2013 fantasy teams or he’ll be irrelevant and it’s not really on him which outcome comes to play.Please, blog, may I have some more?
SAGNOF essentially means don’t pay for saves or steals. Steals/Saves Ain’t Got No Face, i.e., they can be found for cheap. They are in abundance later in drafts and on waivers. For this post, let’s focus on steals. Everth Cabrera didn’t play a game in the majors until May 17th and gave you 44 steals, the 3rd most steals last year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Brett Jackson should be the starting center fielder on Opening Day. That’s the good news. The bad news is the Cubs have already said the good news isn’t the most likely to happen news. The Cubs have said Jackson will start 2013 in Triple-A.Please, blog, may I have some more?
“Careful what you wish for” isn’t just a cliché or a phrase that genies use in Disney movies. ”Careful what you wish for” can also be applied to you, Mr. or Ms. Fantasy Baseballer, wishing a rookie pitcher gets put into a major league rotation.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A quick preamble about the 2013 fantasy baseball rookie series that is coming all this month. Rookies are picked through MLB eligibility requirements, less than 130 ABs or 50 IP. That means no Manny Machado, no Anthony Gose and no Michael Fiers, though you couldn’t get him even if you guys were having sex.Please, blog, may I have some more?
