What are two things that Edinson Volquez, Chien-Mien Wang, Fausto Carmona, and Mike Pelfrey have in common? One is they all throw 90+ MPH sinkers. The second is that none got an out in the 6th inning nor gave up less than 4 runs or 9 baserunners. Blech. It’s way too early to change pre-season […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Tom Verducci of SI has posted his annual ‘Year After Effect’ post which poses that young pitchers who threw more than 30 innings last year than they had the year before as injury risks. I had reference this theory as part of my risky pitchers tests. For those who haven’t read this and are too […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Who doesn’t love a good comeback story? Mickey Rourke, Jamie Walters, Wilco’s Sky Blue Sky after a very hit or miss, A Ghost is Born… Now there’s Edwin Jackson. Last night, he pitched a gem. 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER with 89 pitches. I love prospects that seem destined for greatness then fail. (see Alex […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This was a fantasy baseball league put together by the FSWA, Fantasy Sports Writers Association. (Grey is in the FSWA and Rudy is unlicensed. Hopefully they don’t kick out Grey for hiring non-union labor.) We drafted this league together, which made for some disagreements in our two styles of drafting. That was quickly mended when […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Emilio Bonifacio is like that kid in the 80’s movies that seemed like he didn’t belong but, by the end, is holding his own. At least for one day. Yes, Bonifacio has 2B eligibility, but the Marlins are playing him at 3rd. Who knows how long this lasts? Perhaps as long as Anthony Michael Hall’s […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m in a bunch of leagues because I’m popular and smart. Feathered hair is coming back! It is? Yes, Grey said so! This fantasy baseball league is being hosted by RotoRob. (NOTE: It’s not RotorOB, RotOrOB or roTOROb.) After the pretty picture of my fantasy baseball team, I share with you never-before-seen thoughts I jotted […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Frenchy’s back, Jordan Schafer’s going to hit 161 home runs (accounting for one rainout, of course) and McCann’s going to win the MVP. Oh, and Lowe’s winning the Cy Young. Unanimous. Spring has sprung and baseball’s back. It’s a good time to be alive. Aren’t you glad you didn’t eat any peanuts in the last […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Adam Ronis of Strong Island’s Newsday.com hosts the Fantasy Roundtable this week. He asked… Do you have players that you will absolutely not draft even if they fall far in snake drafts or go cheaply in an auction and if so why? Include examples. Can’t say I was super enlightening on this one but feel […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
