The Detroit Tigers have finally given the Riley Greene Light calling up their highly touted prospect to make his first MLB start Saturday and it could not come soon enough. Detroit ranks dead last in OBP, SLG and OPS. They are also last in steals, runs, RBIs and you guessed it–home runs with just 31, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Please see our player page for Josh Bell to see projections for today, the next 7 days and rest of season as well as stats and gamelogs designed with the fantasy baseball player in mind.
Bryce Harper (1-for-4, 2 runs) and Kyle Schwarber (2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 17th and 18th homer), stand behind home plate watching Harper’s dad throw batting practice. Schwarber walks out and stops Harp’s dad, “Thanks, but I think I’m gonna use the other guy for the Home Run Derby.” Schwarber points to Patrick Corbin. What’s the opposite of June gloom? Kyle Schwarber’s got that. Kyle Schwarber is the first Phillies hitter with 18 homers in the team’s first 64 games since Domonic Brown in 2013. Shoutout to Tehol! By the by, if you weren’t around last November during the offseason, our writer (?) Tehol was on the Bachelorette. I’m not joking:

Any hoo! Anyone that can remember Schwarber’s last June knows he loves hitting in June and in Nationals Park. He had 16 homers last June, then burned out almost as quickly. Someone remind me to trade for Schwarber on May 31st and trade him away on July 1st. Yo, Schwarber save some for after the summer solstice.

So, you’re probably wondering why the Sunday DFS writer is here on Saturday. Did you have a moment of panic after tying one on last night and think you lost a whole day? Did Razzball fire Mitch Staniger? Fear not my friends. While the former may very well be true, the latter is not. My […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The doubleheader in the Bronx started with Ohtani taking on Nestor. The hype, the excitement, the mustache! It was all there. Then the nightcap, what could it do to top such intrigue?! What, I scream at my ceiling. The nightcap ended up being a very stiff shot of Jameson. Did I do that, right? I haven’t drank in, like, ten years, I forget the terminology sometimes. Jameson Taillon took a perfect game into the 8th inning, ending the game with the line — 8 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, zero walks, 5 Ks, ERA at…What’s his ERA? Go ahead. Guess! You know him! Let’s hear your best guesses! Please, indulge me! Imagine dopey guesses as little chocolate truffles. Roll them in cocoa powder and pop them into my mouth for my consumption. WRONG! He’s got a 2.30 ERA. You were two runs off. At least! No? Then you’re rostering him. So, Taillon is doing it with pinpoint control — 5 BBs in 58 2/3 IP — and that’s coming with almost identical stats from previous years minus some Ks. Elite command can carry a guy pretty far. Maybe not as far as a 2.30 ERA in 170+ IP, but won’t be much worse than 3.50 if he holds that kind of command. That Jameson can scotch tape together a lot fantasy staffs if you’re looking to Taillon.

It is Thursday, June 2nd, Lou Gehrig Day in Major League Baseball! We have a seven-game DFS main slate on FanDuel that starts at 6:40 pm Eastern Time. It does feature a Coors Field matchup between the Rockies and Braves with Austin Gomber facing off against Ian Anderson. If you don’t have time to read […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome Back Folks! Hope everybody had a great 3 day weekend and was able to hang out with family and friends and watch a little baseball. Some interesting games lately right? The Pirates taking the first two games of the series against the Dodgers and going for the sweep today is pretty surprising but hey […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Allow me to introduce you to Pete. I have no idea why I am calling it Pete, and it very well might change next week. So what, or who, is Pete? Pete is my new software for making it easy for me to determine rest of season rankings for points leagues. I won’t go into […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A quick look at the Saturday slate has baseball fans excited for three double-headers. The excitement quickly stops when fans realize PIT/CIN is one of the double-dips. I am staying away from this mess (or am I?) considering you could not pay me to watch 18 innings of baseball between the Pirates and Reds. Remember, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good Day All, Thanks for returning once again to check out the updated rankings for First Base. I can’t remember ever seeing so many hard hit balls fall short at the warning track before as I’m sure you have all noticed as well. In some cases it’s worked out as I’ve either had the pitcher […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jesse Winker was a .300 hitter. The Mariners made Jesse Winker a .180 hitter. The Mariners took the two best prospects in baseball and made them .175 hitters. I don’t want to overstate how good Cristian Javier looked, because he looked excellent, but I want it to be clearly stated, the Mariners have poisoned bats. Not like The Riddler plotting in Gotham after The Batman. Like literally holding noodles they think are bats, and never making contact to find out they’re actually holding dry capellini. With that said, Cristian Javier (5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 0.96) looks so good, man and five womans. Not as efficient as I would like (87 pitches with one out in the 6th). Pairing a 96 MPH 4-seamer with an 80 MPH slider that just breaks from righties way outside. Not as many swings and misses as one would like, but no chance for the Mariners on so many pitches. Throw out an Adam Frazier ten-pitch at-bat to start the game, and he would’ve easily made it through the 6th. Javier looks every bit like a starter for every fantasy league, and not just when facing the poisoned, capellini bats of the M’s.

Welcome to weird slate Thursday where MLB has scheduled games at all hours of the day, which is great as a fan and…interesting as a DFS player. I’m going to focus a bit more on the early slate since it’s the larger slate today and the pitching in the nightcap is pretty ugly. Marco Gonzales […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Greetings and Welcome Back. We had a fine week of baseball this past week didn’t we. I just love baseball in April where we can start the day off right with a hot cup of coffee and end it with an old fashioned while watching the west coast clubs play. All right well today I’ve […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
