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?
J.J. Hardy wasn’t appreciated by the Brewers earlier this year — I made all the key outs! I don’t see Ryan Braun doing that! — Well, Hardy will return to the Brewers on Tuesday to pick up where he left off. Hope he remembers to bring his magic bats with him. This one here, this […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jake Peavy is due back August 28th. Member when I told you to drop him? Yeah, that was so two months ago. We’re in August, check your Mr. Winkle calender. It’s a brand new day, Sting. We gotta update you when you you have to pick him up, too? (That’s a Royal we since this […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sorry, but I’m going to open the vent for a millisecond. Let’s go back to Stupid May Grey. I was a point or two in front in one of my leagues, had a solid outfield of Adam Dunn, Carlos Quentin/Beltran and Rasmus. I was within striking distance in steals and the news just came out […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been over a month since we took a look at some pitchers who are pitching over their heads. Last time, we saw Cueto, Porcello, Millwood, Saunders, Lilly, Cahill and Gallardo were due for a correction. Since then, they’ve had Liquid Paper dumped all over their stats. Also, on that list were Matt Cain, Zach […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Matt Holliday is a sell. Zoinks! Holliday’s value does go up with this trade to the Cards. But his value doesn’t skyrocket as it seems most people will now think. Remember, this is Matt “Shin-Soo Choo Has Better Numbers Than Me” Holliday. In the National League, where there’s better pitching and less Runs scored, suddenly […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yesterday, DeWayne Wise joined other historical footnotes, such as the guy who tried to tackle Hank Aaron as he rounded the bases on 715, Francisco Cabrera and the other 4 guys besides Crispus Attucks that were killed in the Boston Massacre, when he saved Mark Buehrle‘s perfect game. That’s the DeWayne Wise of this video. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yesterday, Shane Victorino went 4-for-5, 4 RBIs, 5 Runs scored and his 6th homer. For anyone who read the roundups last year, you’re probably wondering where my Victorino love went. Last year, Victorino was my ’09 Mark Reynolds. I saw good value in Victorino last year and pushed him on everyone. Unfortunately, he met expectations, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As Stephen Drew tried to take that step forward in 2009 that fantasy baseball owners craved, he hurt his hamstring. Wonder what a Drew family vacation is like… “J.D., you wanna go see the world’s largest bottle cap? It’s supposedly 17 inches in circumference!” “Sure, I’ll go tell Mom and Pop.” On the way to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Cornerstone, nay, cornerboulder, Prince Fielder is off to another yawnstipating start. Last year he hit 8 homers through the month of May. Boca Burgers were blamed last year, but maybe he just can’t swing a bat in cold weather because all he can think about is getting back to his hotel room and putting on […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
