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?
Summer time is wedding time, right? Who cares?!?! I can guarantee Summer is baseball time and I am here for it. As we move toward the third month of baseball and the temperatures are quickly rising, we need to keep our eyes on players that can keep our bank accounts rising. Today, I will focus […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Thank you to The Lineup Builder (@Derek_Favret) for covering for me yesterday. I am popping into the Sunday slate as reciprocation. I wrote much of today’s column from the road while traveling for business and must say I was a little tempted to throw Lane Thomas in as my highlighted player of the day then […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Therapy is a good thing. Much of the stigma surrounding therapy appears to have disappeared and that is positive. Though I am not a therapist by trade, I feel as if the amount of back-and-forth banter I have shared with my fellow DFS writers and the Razzball readers has provided me some insight into the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you have a little free time, and what fantasy nerd doesn’t, go back and look at how dominant Justin Verlander was in 2011. The numbers are absolutely ridiculous. Now, fast forward, while keeping a keen eye on each season as you move ahead. Verlander has had two seasons with an ERA over 3.50 and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Being a Mariners fan since 1977 is hard to explain to fans of other teams. People understand our futility and stopped making fun of/joking about our plight many years ago. Sure, we had a season in which we won 116 games. So what? Do you recall what happened in the postseason that year? HINT: Do […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A quick look at the Saturday slate has baseball fans excited for three double-headers. The excitement quickly stops when fans realize PIT/CIN is one of the double-dips. I am staying away from this mess (or am I?) considering you could not pay me to watch 18 innings of baseball between the Pirates and Reds. Remember, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Raise your hand if you had Taylor Ward as the second coming of Mike Trout. Nobody? Same here. Let’s look back at Week 1 of the Taylor Ward experience; one in which I was able to land him in two season long leagues but lost out to his almost $200 FAAB price tag in my […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Quick recap through two plus weeks shows strikeouts and homeruns are both down. Knowing what I pay for when I go to a MLB game, I prefer both of those statistics to increase. I think as the weather warms up and starting pitching arms move away from the ‘dead arm’ phase that normally hits in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Some nasty, wet weather saw a couple of games postponed this week. That will not dampen my DFS outlook for Saturday. I am a man of the people and the people want DFS picks. So, what have we learned so far? Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is really, REALLY good even though he looks like a beer […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 2 and I still feel like it is Christmas morning every time I sign in to set my lineups. The one constant so far, consistent with other early seasons, is there are no constants other than possibly starting pitching not lasting five innings this early in the season. Enough about that, we will get […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
