Yeah, you—the one looking at me in your rearview mirror. I’m talking to YOU. Well, actually, I want to LISTEN to YOU! Am interested in the trade secrets that helped you to make the big, bold, and successful moves that helped you to climb the ranks mid-to-late season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is it, fellas and three girl readers. The last train is leaving the station. The giddy has just about got up and went. It’s your last chance and I’d throw every single pitcher, not just the ones I have listed here if it meant the difference in my league.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yahoo’s fantasy baseball doesn’t count a one game playoff, no matter the format. It would be the Keyser Söze of regular season games, I suppose. ESPN, on the other hand, does count it. So that means only one thing. You need to pick up everyone from potential one game playoff teams before your leaguemates, if it could mean a championship for you.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Wouldn’t say this is crunch time as much as this is “Your nuts are in a cracker and the season’s closing in and squeezing tight so you better just throw any pitchers that are available because you need stats — stat!” time.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Who doesn’t love to show their frenemies their fantasy baseball teams in October and say, “Look at what I won with?” Then they see Mike Aviles and they’re confounded, “How did you win with Mike Aviles?” That is the secret to fantasy baseball in September, young ninja.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week’s ERA was 2.44. That’s 22 earned runs in 81 innings. The WHIP was 1.28. That’s 104 baserunners. Had 5 Wins and 58 Ks. (That’s minus Thursday’s Westbrook start because, well, it’s Thursday.) Not too shabby on the ERA considering the schmohawks I recommended last week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week my borderline fantasy starter post regressed to the mean, if ‘the mean’ means getting pantsed in the six grade in front of the girl you have a crush on, but you’re wearing skintight gotchies so no one actually sees anything except your stained underwear.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Thought I’d take a look at a random fellow RCL manager’s draft and in-season moves to see if we could learn anything that may help us improve our own management skills. First, a look at DRAFT DAY. These are the SIX player positions (of the TOP TEN picks) that are still left on his team from draft day:
1 Infielder (Weren’t we supposed to target more than one on draft day?)
1 OF (Round 9; got to have at least one from Pujols, Braun, Kemp, Holliday, don’t we?)
2 SP (Isn’t pitching much more fragile than hitting?)
2 RP (SAGNOF; wow, Round 6 and Round 8; wouldn’t they have been better off with another infielder and outfielder?)
Is it possible that this team is dead last, given that they only have TWO POSITION PLAYERS left from their top ten picks on draft day?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week, my borderline fantasy starter post was nominated for a Clio. Lost to Draper, but what else is new? Drunks get all the breaks. Just being nominated was a thrill. My line for last week was: 2.17 ERA in 108 IP (that’s only 26 earned runs, you’re welcome).Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week our borderline fantasy starters, I came away with an 3.95 ERA. Not too shabby considering two of those earned runs came from Ross Ohlendorf, who I warned you to only start in extreme circumstances, and Travis Wood got absolutely rocked for 7 earned runs.Please, blog, may I have some more?
