There are a couple of teams still vying for Wild Card and also some jockeying for division crowns. I think this is the time to load up on players from those teams are there is simply no days off for those teams. Couple that with teams that are currently locked into the playoffs that need […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Wild Card race is starting to flesh itself out and today shows the AL teams in as Toronto, Tampa Bay and Seattle. The teams looking in from the outside as of Saturday are Baltimore, Chicago, Minnesota and Boston. On the NL side Atlanta is out in front by 11+ games with San Diego and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, folks, my pitchers hit last week, and my batters missed. Seems to be the case lately, but I will adapt and overcome with my picks this week. I am forging a new path Saturday by focusing on, as the title alludes, teams in the running for the Wild Card. Those teams simply cannot take […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you have read my weekly DFS column, you know I am a diehard Mariners fan. Sometimes saying that out loud tastes like bile, but not this year. We did just enough in free agency to move the needle. The best of the off-season moves was enticing the reigning AL CY award winner to come […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I had one of my better betting Saturday’s last week…kind of. My offensive lineup hit and hit a lot. My issue was with my starting pitchers. Both had excellent outings but neither offense supporting them could break the mid-inning ties, so both Strider and Gilbert departed with no chance at wins. Though discouraged at the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, folks, my column for last Saturday was a tad wonky. I suggested starting Spencer Strider, SP: DK: $9,700, and my guy got bumped to Monday as opposed to starting one of the doubleheader games. Someone in the Braves organization owes me an explanation and an apology. Why would they demote Ian Anderson only to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
My goodness, look at the aces going today. McClanahan, Giolito (maybe not right now, but you get it), Nola, deGrom, Burnes, Gallen (don’t trust me…go look at his numbers), plus Webb and Yu are just outside the aces discussion. All of the names above will be used throughout DFS today and I will not argue […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The trade deadline has come and gone and some big names were moved while others stayed put. While players like Wilson Contreras will have to continue to put up big stats for a terrible team, others like Juan Soto, Josh Bell, and Luis Castillo clicked their heels like Dorothy to thankfully find their way to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Did you immediately ask, “What is happening?” If so, stay tuned to read what is happening: the second half of the season is upon us; the trade deadline is here, too. When you read “It’s Happening”, what do you think of? I think we all have a slightly different opinion based on our favorite team/player. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Each Summer, as the ball really starts to fly out of the park(s), we welcome the All-Star Game to the calendar. For most players, the three day break to spend with family on the beach or couch is a welcome respite from the long season. The others, those raking the ball or sitting down opposing […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hogan’s Heroes was a fine television show in the early 1970s. Only a portion of the readership will have any recollection of the show. The best thing about Hogan’s is there was never a reboot. The network/writers left a good thing alone and stuck with the original. The same thing cannot be said for other […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Someone tell @DonkeyTeeth this is not a football article and the JAGs mentioned above do not reside in DUUUUUUUUUU-VAAAAAAAAAAL. Keep reading and you will find out what a JAG is and how we are weaving them into our DFS line-ups. Well, folks, it appears as if Commissioner Manfred has started inserting the home run balls […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
