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?  I’ll run on the “No more new tuxes” campaign.  Then when people elect me and say they thought it was a typo or a weird lisp, I’ll tell them, “No, I’m just not buying a new tuxedo.”  I don’t want to talk up Aramis too much because I don’t think he’s a surefire stud.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

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.
