In an unprecedented move, I’m making Aramis Ramirez a Buy after labeling him a schmohawk in the preseason. Crazy, right? Get me a constituency and a mistress, I’m a flip-flopping politician?

With September 1st knocking on August’s door — August 31st, is that you? Uh… No. August 30th? Nope. August 32nd? No, you nitwit! It’s September 1st! – it’s time we looked at September call ups. These are potential September call ups that will, should, could and potentially make or not make a difference in fantasy baseball.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I finally found out how The Baseball Cube figures out their ratings and now so have you. Essentially they compile all of a players stats and compare them against other players at the same level of play – this means a AAA player’s ratings are only compared against other AAA players and so on and so forth with other levels on a 1 to 100 scale.Please, blog, may I have some more?
