Good luck on the last three days of the season. It’s a 6-month grind and we all deserve a little gratification. It’s always nice to reflect on the year that was. So, who surprised you the most this season (good or bad)? Which player are you really excited for next season? In terms of advice […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

After this weekend there will only be 10 days left in the MLB season. Don’t neglect the three-day week to end the season. Often times leagues can be decided by one at-bat. Which means we need to be in on players now if you want that leg up on your rival manager. Notable schedules: […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
After this weeks FAAB run, there will only be 2.5 weeks left of the MLB season; and anyone who got added to the IL this week should be dropped. Ultimately, it’s crunch time and you should be evaluating everything in the standings (if you play roto). Moreover, it doesn’t matter where you drafted anyone at […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is going to be a wild week in MLB as teams have a large disparity of games. Plan ahead, don’t leave yourself having to start a fringe player with only 5 games, if you play in a weekly league. Now that we are officially in crunch time for leagues, don’t let those few counting […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We saw the first wave of September call ups with headliners in Corbin Carroll and Gunnar Henderson. There will likely be more to come as vets get rested and teams want to give their young guys a lower pressure setting to get their first taste of the bigs. My advice, always bid on these guys, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hard to believe that September is right around the corner. Seems like yesterday we were panicking about a potential short season. As we look ahead, it’s important to play your leagues out, as managers could have already turned their attention to football. Even if you’re low on budget, it’s important to always bid on players. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There are only about six weeks left in the season. If you play in a roto league, don’t be afraid to make bold cut decisions. Out in front of saves or steals by a lot? Maybe it’s time to cut that second or third closer or that speed-only bat. Conversely, if you are trailing by […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The “how can you not be romantic about baseball” line gets tossed around a lot these days. However, it only takes a few moments to reflect on this season to know it’s been a treat. The Orioles would be in the playoff if the season ended today. Juan Soto got dealt to the Padres, just […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Turned out to be a crazy deadline after all. Not all trades will have positive impacts for your teams and players. I’ll try (poorly) to access how the trade deadline shook out for fantasy free agents. I’m feeling some good (add everywhere – a chance at being high impact), the bad (lost role/playing time) and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Nothing embodies a trade market like MLB and school lunches. Most other major sports rarely see headliner names get dealt. It’s an exciting time to be a fan, regardless if your favorite team is buying or selling. Buying, your probably fantasizing about a World Series run. Conversely (selling) you’re hoping for a brighter future with […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I hope everyone enjoyed the All-Star festivities or at least the couple-day hiatus from eying up box scores. MLB has dialed up a busy week coming out of the break, with 16 teams playing 7 games. There are plenty of two-start streamers for shallow formats. Unfortunately, the 15-team landscape remains as barren as the Tigers’ […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I know recency bias is a powerful thing but it seems to me, we are seeing a lot more highly touted prospects come up this season. This could be a symptom of the tweaked service time rules, or maybe teams are having a rethink on development schedules. Regardless of the reason, it’s a great time […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
