Carlos Beltran won’t play in day games following night games. He won’t play in too many games in a row. He won’t play in games where the other team’s starting pitcher’s last name ends in an N. Here’s me playing the world’s smallest violin for everyone at Metco. Since Beltran’s return, 1 homer and zero […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Freddy Sanchez limped off the field with a knee injury. Presumably, the same knee he’s been nursing since his days with Pittsburgh. Without his services, the Giants probably would have still finished in third, but a game or two further out, so no regrets losing Alderson. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week’s borderline starters post netted a 3.22 ERA if you started Justin Masterson, even though I said I wouldn’t start him unless your situation was dire. So if you didn’t start him, you had a 2.71 ERA from the guys I pointed out last week. You also had 47 Ks in 63 innings with […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yovani Gallardo (IP count, young arm), Ross Ohlendorf (ditto) & Michael Young (hamstring) are the latest players being ‘shut down’ as teams outside the pennant race start playing for 2010. Don’t they realize that every player is part of at least thousands of fantasy baseball pennant races? For the 99% of you in non-keeper leagues, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Who doesn’t love to show their frenemies their fantasy baseball teams in October and say, “Look at what I won with?” Then they see Juan Uribe and they’re confounded, “How did you win with Juan Uribe?” That is the secret to fantasy baseball in September. If you win your league, I guarantee someone will look […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Randy Wells spells relief with D-R-O-P H-I-M. 3 2/3 IP, 3 ER in his previous start. 4 IP, 5 ER yesterday. If this were an SAT question, the next game’s line in this series is 4 1/3 IP and 7 ER. Four months of a 3 ERA is a good run, right? Send him a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
When in doubt, I like to keep hitters over pitchers, but sometimes pitchers come with such a cheap price tag, you have to take a gander, goose. Ubaldo Jimenez should fit that bill, duck. Gotta look for the sale, man (fish). (Okay, I’ll stop now.) With Jimenez’s average ADP this preseason and his egregious April, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’d like to dedicate this opening paragraph to one of our 2008 faves Mark ‘Mini-Donkey’ Reynolds as he reached 200 Ks and is poised to shatter the previous record of 205 Ks set by the very same Mark Reynolds last year. (Luckily, he’s also shattering his record for Runs, HRs, RBIs, and SBs too.) We […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Looking around the jumbled mess of the internet, I found this rather interesting article over at FanGraphs detailing the bust rate of minors league players relative to their letter grade given by scouts. The grading scale was based upon Baseball America. It is short, interesting, and it pertains; so go read it. Secondly, Jason Heyward […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Daisuke Matsuzaka returned from his bout of Terriblitis to pitch effectively vs. the Angels. 6 IP, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks. He almost looked as good as when he won the MVP of the World Baseball Classic. Ah, yes, Selig, it’s a brilliant idea. We’re a global game now. Next time I’m in Italy, my […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
