You, “Well, it looks like the right URL. But I don’t recognize the site design at all and… ERIC HOSMER AS A SLEEPER?! WHO HACKED GREY’S ACCOUNT?! I wonder if they’re letting his mustache get at least 15 minutes of sunlight per day. SERIOUSLY, DUBYA TEE EFF?!” That’s right, over-the-internet friend, we’ve redesigned the site and now we’re here to redesign your mind on what you think of Hosmer. So, it’s a constant struggle of mine that I think I might be self-defeating. Do I self-sabotage? When choosing people or situations, do I go for the road less traveled not out of excitement, but because it will be more arduous and less likely for success? When I choose a girlfriend, do I try to find one that I know won’t work? Or do I find one that will work and sabotage the relationship? Better yet, is this why I’m interested in Eric Hosmer for 2013? Or so I said to my shrink. Luckily, she knows baseball and is familiar with Eric Hosmer. How could she not after last year? Half of my visits revolved around the Royals 1st baseman. “Grey, I want you to go home and write a sell post for Hosmer, then reduce it to two point font size and have it tattooed under your eyelids.” And that’s why I pay the big money to an non-accredited shrink! On the flip side of that coin, there’s an eagle. On the flip flip side, I refuse to draft Hosmer because of his 2012, then he produces in 2013. Well, that’s the dilemma: draft a guy that caused me so much pain to get more pain or not draft a guy and watch him succeed on someone else’s team. Here we have a crossroads. Maybe we should first look at what he can do next year. So what should we expect from Eric Hosmer for 2013 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here is a look at the value of first basemen over the past season in OPS fantasy leagues. This is not meant to be a ranking so much as adding a lens to illustrate their relative value with OPS as a component.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Despite his unfortunate name, Homer Bailey pitched the first Reds’ no-hitter since 1988 last night, completely shutting down the Pirates down-and-out offense, allowing just 2 base runners on an error and a walk and striking out a career high 10 batters.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The .245 AVG is going to look ugly next March but 31 HRs and 80+ R/RBI has been nirvana for anyone (like Rudy) who plucked Josh Reddick off free agency in shallow leagues this year. The power is real and, unlike the last A’s power hitter (Jack Cust), he is an above average fielder. So the A’s now have 2/3 of a phallic OF foundation with Reddick and Yoenis. Where is Lance Johnson Jr or Dick Pole Jr when you need them?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Brandon McCarthy had surgery and is likely done for the year. I’m sure no one wants to see McCarthy leave the rotation like that, even Daniel Straily. It reminds me of the time in Little League when I finally got a chance to play because Billy Brunswick had chicken pox.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m sure you remember the scene from the seemingly forgotten classic City Slickers when Curly, played masterfully by the legendary Jack Palance, tells Billy Crystal’s character, Mitch, about that “one thing” I could have sworn when watching the other day, that he was referring to fantasy baseball, because as we well know, fantasy baseball IS LIFE!Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know that cracked out guy at the 7-11 at 3 AM who’s just trying to get a cylindrical hamburger for free? ”Yo, man, can I get me a cylindrical hamburger?” Grabs said hot doggey-looking burger and jets for the exit.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes. Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live and let’s change the way we treat each other. You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do what we gotta do, to survive.Please, blog, may I have some more?
And another rookie is called up. It’s raining rookies that I will pick up for a few days and then drop if they don’t pan out in a matter of three days. First, let’s see what our prospect writer, Scott, said just four days ago about Manny Machado, “Machado’s line on the year at Double-A isn’t pretty: .266/.350/.431, 10 HR. Still, he’s not slipping much in mid-season prospect rankings, as scouts and pundits continue to believe in his tools. At just 20 years old, there’s ample time for him to play up to his potential, and I’m inclined to agree with the masses — Machado is still a future fantasy stud.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ever notice how frustrating fantasy baseball is? Just like real life. Fortunately, we have Razzball to make everything better. Fantasy baseball-wise that is. Not your life. That kind of help, you have to pay for. So, let’s get to it!
