Summer officially begins next week, and hopefully, your fantasy offenses are starting to heat up along with the weather. The baseball season has already brought its fair share of disappointments, so here’s to a more bountiful deep-league waiver wire as more minor leaguers get looks, injury replacements emerge, and other fantasy owners whose teams are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

We’re about a third of the way through the season, and I must say I’m a little surprised at how much movement there is in the standings on a daily basis in some of my leagues. I have a few teams that I thought were rolling right along that quickly hit the skids and dropped […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve had a few weeks with some potentially interesting names floating around the deep league waiver wire, with players like Christopher Morel, Tyrone Taylor, and RITD-lede-from-a-couple-weeks-ago Edwin Rios even creeping into the medium depth re-draft league conversation. But after this flurry of FAAB activity, is there anything left for those of us who either missed […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we head into Memorial Day weekend, this week has once again reminded me of the occasional agony that ensues due to the myriad of options available to fantasy owners in shallow leagues, options which simply aren’t there for those of us in the deep league world. On Wednesday, I managed to have both Joc […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re two-thirds of the way through May, my friends, and I for one am beginning to think I may have overextended myself just a wee bit. My RCL teams continue to be a blast, but they don’t exactly manage themselves! When it comes to my deep leagues, they may not manage themselves either, but there […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another week, another reminder of how quickly things can change in fantasy baseball’s deep league landscape. My desk is often littered with post-its featuring names of players I might write up a little blurb on, most of whom have fantasy ownership in the 0-5% range. What a difference a few days or a week can […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So I’ve been trying to look for silver livings when it comes to the slow starts of the hitters I have rostered in my deepest leagues and I’ve come up with this: at least I have a sense of calm knowing there’s really nothing I can do about it. While I actually had to stop […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As the month of April draws to a close this weekend, it’s a good time to take a moment and realize just how early it is in the world of fantasy baseball, especially once we remember that the season started a week late due to that pesky lockout. Earlier this week, just when I was […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re three weeks into April, the season is in full swing, and that weird lockout nightmare that we all suffered through for most of the winter feels like a fuzzy memory. It’s still early, but we probably all have a completely new outlook on the fantasy baseball landscape. For the moment my offseason obsessions with […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello, deep league friends! The season is just now a week old as I type this, and my draft season is finally over as of about 48 hours ago. It is amazing looking at how differently players are being valued in the drafts I did this week, versus those I did a week ago, versus […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
By the time you read this, actual 2022 major league baseball games will have finally happened! I still have a couple more drafts before I’m officially ready to roll for the year, but in the meantime, I thought I’d look back to some of my early deep league picks to see which look like hits […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
How do we still have a week left before the season starts?! This feels like the longest pre-season ever, which is kind of surprising given that just two years ago the pre-season lasted until late July. Anyway, I’m not complaining, just a little exhausted from drafting and overwhelmed from information overload as I head into […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
