The Washington Nationals babied their future shortstop, Esmailyn Gonzalez, through their minors until they realized that Esmailyn shouldn’t be babied, he should be old-man’d. Kinda like the orphan in The Orphan that turned out to be a dwarf hooker. (Haven’t seen it, but the spoiler kinda makes me want to.) So the Nats sent Bowden […]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!.
Pablo Sandoval swings at everything. Every. Thing. 25% is around the average that a player will swing outside of the zone. Pablo’s around 43%. The amount he swings at inside the strike zone is around 82%, league average is just off 45%. Thankfully, he makes contact with over 75% of pitches outside the strike zone […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ryan Madson finally took over for Brad Lidge. This was only about three months in the making and after six separate endorsements by Manuel saying Lidge is their closer. Ah fanabla, what a headache. Ever since Brett Myers returned from his MMA training, fantasy baseballers (that’s you!) seem ready to put Myers in the closer […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It has been quite a week in baseball. All this Jeter coverage is getting old, especially when that is all EPSN talks about, which coincidentally means all media outlets will too. While somehow this passed me by – Madison Bumgarner debuted in the majors last night throwing 5 1/3 innings of 2 run ball while […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tim Lincecum missed yesterday’s start vs. the Padres (there goes that 14 K start) and gave way to the Giants big-time rookie pitching prospect, Madison Bumgarner. Lincecum should be back by this weekend. A detailed Madison Bumgarner outlook can be found where it says, “Madison Bumgarner outlook.” (Yeah, still haven’t figured out how to naturally […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
In roto, you can can’t gain ground in many categories in September, unless you’re already close. The two categories you can conceivably gain ground in is in steals and saves — SAGNOF! If you are up in power, or at least far enough that you can’t be caught by the team right behind you, then […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Carlos Pena is out for the remainder of the season according to the St. Petersburg Times. My question is, why is a Russian newspaper reporting this? Guess my over under of 41 homers for Pena is gonna end just under at 39. One of these years, he’s going to have one of those lucky seasons […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Alfonso Soriano is out indefinitely with knee problems. Backdate this news three months. Al-So is beginning to look like every bit of his Latin 33 age. A real *pinkie to mouth* Al-so ran. I’d drop Soriano in all leagues. So it’s Jakie Foxx time, right?! Since Soriano’s been gone, Sam Fuld (no power, light speed) […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
How about them White Sox?! Yeah, they chucked in the pale towel sometime between Ozzie Guillen’s Monday outburst and Ozzie Guillen’s Tuesday outburst of this week. One of the pieces them grabbed that was hailed by many as being a stroke of genius was Jake Peavy. Yeah, the Padres actually made a good trade there […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
In this corner — BJ Upton. In that corner — expectations. Should be TKO with BJ clobbering expectations. Not sure what happened on the way to September, but he hasn’t been right all season. Maybe he’s hiding an injury. But that was last season’s excuse. This season he was supposed to make good on his […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
