These are the players you want to drop, add or simply hold onto for your fantasy baseball roster. DROPS Every Baltimore Oriole not named Nick Markakis, Ramon Hernandez or Brian Roberts – This team looks atrocious. Millar’s best is behind him, and he was never that good, shortstop is a black hole, Mora is mediocre […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Johnny Cueto pitched today against the Diamondbacks and… Damn, Cueto toyed with the D-Backs hitters. He looked filthy. He had them completely off-balance. Mixing between a 95 MPH fastball and a 84 MPH changeup, all of the D-Backs looked like their hitting coach was Mark Reynolds (up to 6 Ks! 200 is within reach). The […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Martin Prado is about to become Kelly Johnson’s platoon-mate. I saw it happen to Johnson last year with Yunel grabbing at-bats and I watched Matt Diaz never get a shot against righties. This is how Bobby Cox do. Bitch and moan all you want that Johnson just has a knee injury. He’s going to sit […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Major league closers are constantly changing and there’s always being discussed. So let’s do that. WTF, Putz is injured? Who’s backing up Gagne? Who’s setting up Huston Street? Who is Jason Grilli? Chad Cordero is injured and Rauch is closing, not or yacht? And do I need to know any of these things? Yes, no, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, if you’re like me you’ve been waiting for Yahoo fantasy baseball to add Johnny Cueto. Guess what? He’s added. Finally. Now go put in your claim for him and drop Tom Gordon, before he screws up your team anymore. Rudy Gamble wanted me to also remind you that Alexei Ramirez is now available on […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
In today’s daily notes, I’ll look at how badly Pedro Martinez’s struggles were against the Marlins up until the injury and everything else I saw in today’s major league games: Dan Uggla, Luis Gonzalez took Pedro Martinez deep. Beltran took an awful route to a ball for a Hanley triple to score an AA chip. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
And now for the actual opening day of the baseball season. The first full slate of games is almost in the books (minus the rainouts.) What I saw: Verlander was dealing. He easily could’ve gotten the win, if not for… Alex Gordon. After ranking him extremely high in my top 100, I’ll be watching closely […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here’s Bill James on 60 Minutes last night. BTW, Saw 21, the Kevin Spacey/kid who looks like Jeremy London from Party of Five movie, this weekend. Best gambling movie I’ve seen since Rounders. The ending was predictable, but it still had a lot of great scenes. Also, proves the point that Kevin Spacey is at […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week, I told you about some guys you should be adding to your roster. Now said player is sitting there on waivers and you have , say, the 3rd claim. Or say the 7th or the 1st, doesn’t really matter for this exercise. When do you know the right time to grab a player […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Chad Cordero reported stiffness and Jon Rauch came out to save Sunday’s true season opener. If Cordero’s injured, then it’s Rauch who will get the saves, so he’s a must add right now as we wait to see what’s going on with Cordero. Over in Dodgers country, Torre announced that Andre Ethier will be starting […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
