Oh, the Memorial Day weekend is here, subtle rejoice. It is officially the start to the season of way too tight Affliction t-shirts that are monikered in glitter and shirts that are sold in the three-pack variety. What could be better than that, I’ll tell you what.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is the part of this story that is supposed to grab the reader. I don’t believe in all the handy hullabaloo. I will be too worried about doing it in a fashion that is in the form of an inverted W and having other people critique it and say I am an injury risk going forward.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another week in the books, my fellow pretend baseball heads. The chase for wins continues this week with a stellar group of entries comprised of 9 guys whose combined career starts don’t even equal the other person’s. I can’t even remember what I was doing in 1986 when Jamie Moyer started his first game.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, here we are in week 3 already, wonder if ML bee will have another opening game just to keep it fresh. The world of two-start pitchers is in full bloom, the rotations are coming together and being set in an orderly fashion.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So it comes to this, the final countdown. Cue Lou Gramm and let that blaze through your head as you listen to that classic from Foreigner. If you read this in tune with that song, it’s almost like the Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz experience. You have to read fast though. I can’t believe the season is basically over as it seemed to fly by and I guess I missed all the fun. This week is extended by 3 additional days so basically every pitcher you can think of goes twice during championship week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The playoffs roar on. I am calling this week’s entry the De-Fib kit for your playoff hopes, the in case of emergency break glass list. Well how bad could it honestly be, if you’re still alive in the playoffs or are still trying to steal those last few points. It’s a better alternative than being out of the playoffs and looking forward to fantasy hockey. Shameless cross promotion is never a bad thing. The fringe benefits are awesome, as I received a signed picture of Dick Button and a glass of water with a note attached saying it was ice from the Montreal Forum. So continue the good fight as the playoffs continue on, comments or pitch or ditch questions are always welcome. Good luck.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Finally Jim Mora and Robert Horry will pay attention to their fantasy baseball teams. Last week got all flummoxed with all that Irene business. Not my fault the patent is still pending on my weather machine. This week let’s hope we are back to some sense of normalcy. Wait, off course we are… Strasburg is back! It’s like the Beatles playing Shea in ‘63. No, not really, but it’s still exciting. Some playoff systems lock their rosters so if your reading this to just read this, thanks for being a faithful reader. Others, start as many as you can. Stats are stats. I would rather go down fighting than sit there like a bump on a log. Well, good luck this week in both the fantasy baseball playoffs and the first week of fantasy football. (Please keep in mind that pitchers and matchups change.)
ONE START OPTIONS:
Bruce Chen @ Oak – Moscoso
I started writing this week and kept getting distracted by the notion of a “tease” starting pitcher. These are guys we all see available every week at the top of our waiver wire. For some reason they hop on and off rosters, faster than the Easter Bunny. They all for some reason have an attractive quality, whether it be a great matchup, a previous decent start or just a general boyish quality that we find irresistible. We see the numbers they produce and sometimes numbers tell a different story than what really is going on for fantasy purposes. In the end, it comes down to picking a starting pitcher in a must win week is the same place that $30 steak goes to digest. So with the eve of playoffs upon us, here are the lower end 2 start options for the week. Good luck and happy fantasying.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I hate regression, my hairline does it every day. Though subtly, like a ninja assassin, as it mocks me in the mirror when I’m brushing my teeth. Pitcher regression is a known entity. We all assume it will happen, but when and where is the big query.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We have officially come to the overlap week. It happens every year when baseball begins to wind down and the whole affection for drafting takes over with football. You think fantasy baseball websites are watered down, football takes that to a new level.Please, blog, may I have some more?
