A cavalcade of stars trampling through your computer like a Colt 45 commercial. Not really, but if they all did… awesome. I would be the first person — make that the second — to die from high fiving. The first, if you must know — was that kid who slept with the hot teacher in high school.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We are finally legal with the fantasy season turning 18 this week. Nice. I was trying to think of the best baseball movie ever this week. I asked several people in my fantasy leagues what they thought. Typical answers — the ones that we all say should be the best were mentioned.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The deadline is here. Nobody has any money, but want top starting talent. Huh? Whatever happened to, you have to spend money to make money? Several big deals are coming. Haren and Oswalt top most teams wish lists. As I sat at the Yankee game on Friday, dancing in the rain(literally), I realized that you need two people to do the Kid N Play dance.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to the real second half. Not that 4 game H2H sprint where you lose to the last place team cause he had 3 guys carry his week, one of them named Molina. I am back from my much needed vacation funded by Razzball.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The week that was showed us that Carlos Zambrano has issues, no big trades yet and LeBron is going to the Knicks. Or I wish anyways. It’s stealing all the headlines right now in the sports world, that and the underpants gnomes.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The final week of interleague play is upon us and I can hardly hold back the emotions. What will we do when we have to watch the same old boring series between divisional rivalries. Yawn. Teams are starting to feel out the trade market, highlighted by the two teams who are either in bankruptcy or in a financial divorce crisis.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I am slightly distracted now that the World Cup has started. I know you’ll say, “Smokey, Americans don’t watch soccer.” True, but you should. The game yesterday between the U.S and England had more money wagered on it than the Super Bowl and will be watched by more people worldwide.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s finally here. The Strasburg watch is finally over as the second coming of fantasy Jesus is here. I saw him in the cave on Sunday getting limber for his 2 awaited starts. I am tempering expectations, since he is going to be on a innings limit.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Strasburg watch has gone into DEFCON 3. Every expert who calls themselves one, knows the date he is coming up and who he will face and how he will throw exactly 85 pitches with 75 of them being fastballs. Enough already, all this speculation is annoying.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After an exhausting week of every team playing everyday, we come to only a handful. Weekly leagues take note that in week 8, 3 teams: Detroit, Seattle and Texas only play 5 games. The week of Memorial Day is also tough for fantasy in New Jersey, because we have to find WIFI friendly hotels at The Jersey Shore. I’m bringing my laptop to Jenkinson’s since I have a reservation for a bar stool for one. Baseball is approaching the time where teams that are out of it are saying, “Sorry, fans, but our good players won’t be here and you will have to watch scrubs.” Houston, KC and Cleveland are the early names that jump out to me as being sellers long before the All-Star Break.Please, blog, may I have some more?
