Julio Borbon has been running around like a chicken without its head or maybe Borbon is *pinkie to mouth* a Wild Turkey. Yesterday, he even hit a home run. The word out of the mean streets of Arlington was he’d sit once Cruz returned. Cruz returned. Borbon played. Natch! Will Borbon’s brilliance continue? Unfortunately, I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best daily/weekly Player projections (hitters, starters, and relievers) for each of the next 7-10 days + next calendar week starting Friday. Kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
This week we’re starting a new weekly column that will be here every Thursday, it will be all about fantasy baseball keepers. Since many fantasy baseball keeper leagues don’t decide on their keepers until the start of the new season, I figured I’d go over some fantasy baseball keepers from now until next spring. These […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Drew Stubbs will replace Willy T. (<–Sounds like characters from a blaxploitation film. And neither are African-American. Weird!) Stubbs might get the shaft vs. righties but he can be baadasssss for speed. Drew Stubbs was selected a few picks before Travis Snider in the first round of the 2006 draft. Not for his power… No, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A couple of reminders. First, The Baseball Cube’s rational behind their rankings. Secondly, if you click “The Cube” rankings under the player you go to their page. Just a heads up for those who want to kill more time. In last weeks StU, I was asked about Brett Wallace because I mentioned/wrote that Yonder Alonso […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m sure even Kevin Gregg can’t believe he held the Cubs closer job as long as he did. After witnessing Gregg’s sixth blown save and 12th gopher ball on Monday night, Piniella went into the locker room and flipped a table, screaming at a young, non-mustachioed Willie Randolph… Oh, wait, that was The Bronx is […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been a while since we checked in on our Razzball Commenter League and Fantasy Razzball League – mainly because I’ve been either on vacation or working like a dog for the past month. Here it goes… There’s been a big shakeup in the RCL Standings as previous leader Cruz Control (commenter Anthony) has dropped […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Tigers added Aubrey Huff to complement Jim Leyland’s puff. When the Detroit Free Press hit the streets to find out what Tigers fans thought of this trade, they were met by mixed reactions. Some fans asked for change, others shot at them. Huff should be added to the 1st base/DH mix with Carlos Guillen heading […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Verducci Effect as explained by Verducci, “Pitchers generally feel the effects of abusive increases in workload the next year, not the season in which they were pushed.” So to avoid this, clubs shutdown or skip young pitchers (this applies to those 25 years old and younger). In fantasy baseball, lots of championships are won […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
David Wright was released from the hospital yesterday after tests showed that he was okay from Saturday’s beaning. When he first went down, the Mets had some serious concerns when Wright couldn’t answer straightforward questions like, “Who’s our starting shortstop?” “Who plays 1st?” “Who’s the shirtless guy hiding in Jerry Manual’s locker?” Wright might be […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Chad Billingsley was a fave on mine coming into the year, and he pitched great for maybe a third of a season, passable for a third and pretty forgettable for the other third. It’s with great regret I tell you to sell him for fifty cents on the dollar in one year leagues. He wasn’t […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
