And-Gim isn’t just Pam from The Office’s requested guest list plus one. And-Gim isn’t just someone remembering late their favorite characters on Taxi. “And-Gim And-Gim number nine, on the New York Transit Line, if my train goes off the track, pick him up, pick him up, pick him up! Back on the scene, crispy and clean, still 23 with an outside chance for 20/20/.300!” Okay, that last part didn’t rhyme. Yesterday, Andres Gimenez went (4-for-8, 5 RBIs and his 13th and 14th homer, hitting .312) in the doubleheader. Gimenez is averaging about four homers a month, and has seven steals already this month. If he gets ten steals in a month, well, I don’t want to wake up Mr. Prorater — “Did you know your uncle spends more time on Facebook than Jonas Salk spent on polio?” — Oh, shut up, Mr. Prorater! Andres Gimenez is in that delicate area where if he loses just a little power and speed in 2023, then he becomes a 15/15 guy and that’s a little yawnstipating, but he’s also on the precipice of becoming a 20/30/.300 guy, and that’s top 25 overall guy. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?

I’ve been crushing these streamers since the All-Star break but last week was terrible. It was easily one of my worst weeks of the year, and that’s simply going to happen at times with the volatility of baseball. I was a bit hesitant picking streamers last week, but that’s certainly not the case here. Those […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The baseball world got some disappointing news Friday night when San Diego Padres shortstop slash motorcycle rider slash drug user slash all around cool guy Fernando Tatis Jr. was handed a 80 game suspension by Major League Baseball after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. WTF FTJ, PEDs!? SMH. I can think of some other […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This article covers the August 11th, All-Day Slate, on FanDuel that starts at 1:05 pm Eastern time with Miami vs. Philadelphia and ends with the Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati that starts at 7:15 pm Eastern Time. Kyle Farmer going against Drew Smyly is one of my favorite plays on this slate along with Yordan Alvarez […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hope everyone out there is beating the heat most of the nation is experiencing and you have a pool close by you or some body of water you can get a little relief. As we enter the back half the season I’m going to pick out a few Corner Infielders that are due for a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Poor Red Sox fans. After being subjected to Mookie Betts game winning home run and his game ending diving catch only a night before, Friday night the Blue Jays completed a historic Beantown beatdown at Fenway scoring 28, yes, TWENTY EIGHT runs on the Sawx hapless pitching staff like it was CFL game. Boston Massacre, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
If I was ever looking to control a key demographic of our articles, I believe the headline just reeled in all 16 of you! For those of you that don’t have a clue what Saved By the Bell was a teen sitcom based around a group of high school friends. These friends shared countless stories of heartbreak and humor and ultimately led to some amazing careers post recording. The teen heart throb, Zach, has gone on to star in countless hits like Dead Man on Campus and Saved By the Bell: Hawaiian Style. His love interest, Kelly Kapowski, was the first crush that many of us 40 year olds had growing up! Vying for the love of Kelly opposite Zach was A.C. Slater. A.C. was always cool, had some sick dance moves, and has led off for the Giants in his last 3 appearances vs LHP. Oh wait, divergent stories!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hope everybody’s All-Star Break is going smooth and you are able to catch up on seeing your family more and maybe getting into a new show or two to help you get through this dead period of our sport that consumes our daily lives. The 2nd half will be fast and furious with trades, playoff […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Riley Greene is Detroit’s best prospect, and since his call-up, he’s been atop the lineup pretty much every game. While he’s only hitting .245 through his first 113 plate appearances, he’s doing so with a .345 OBP while maintaining an improved 23.9% K% (which is lower than most of his minor league career) and improving […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Max Meyer is being called up. *does a highly-choreographed handshake with self that ends with me miming putting food in my mouth* We eating tonight! Three of the last four on Itch’s prospect stash list was Esteury Ruiz, Vinnie Pasquantino and Max Meyer. With Meyer’s promotion, they’ll all be up. Where you at, Miguel Vargas?! I already gave you a Max Meyer fantasy when it appeared like he’d be called up in May. Then he was sidetracked with an injury, but he’s healthy now and, like I said, we’re eating! Will he stay up if Edward Cabrera or Luzardo get healthy? If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we’d be diabetic squirrels. Meyer might be good for another 50-60 IP, which is nearly a full 2nd half, I grabbed him in my 15-team mixed league immediately, then hemmed-and-hawed for fifteen minutes, and finally grabbed him in my 12-team mixed RCL, too, but we’ll see if I hold him there. Pitchers are pretty plentiful to be holding a possible roofie. He could be the best starter call-up we see this year. *mimes filling a dog bowl, puts it by feet, gets on knees and sticks face in bowl* We eating!

I’m back for another Saturday as Mitch Staniger finishes off his vacation. There will be no Seattle lede today as I’ll be avoiding Robbie Ray in his #revenge-game, but if you like to take a stroll down narrative street, by all means. I’m going super boring today and recommending the top pitcher on the slate, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yesterday, was not just our Independence Day. Yesterday, was the halfway point of the baseball season. So, Halfway to Independence from Jonathan India Day. You cannot tell me our forefathers just happened to put the Fourth of July on the exact midpoint of the baseball season by accident. They didn’t put hairspray on their platinum silver wigs like they were Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada and just happen to drop the doozy of the Declaration of Independence on baseball’s 81st game played just as a little oopsie-daisy on their Yankee Doodle like how your daddy did your mommy. No way! This is why baseball is the National Pastime. So, Happy 4th of July to even all you cowards who drafted starters early. Speaking of starters, Brayan Bello will start for the Red Sox this Wednesday. Bello will pitch for a scream. Take it Highlights, it’s yours! Bello was in the Itch’s top 50 starting pitcher prospects, saying, “Bello added strength and velocity over the lost minor league season and now features a mid-90s fastball with a little extra dotting the gun once in a while. He was successful enough before, as we’ve detailed in these pages, but now he’s striking out 36.9 percent of hitters in High-A and 31.1 percent in AA—a big jump from the 22.6 percent he posted in 2019. His fastball gets a bit too much for him to be a no-doubt starter unless he finds a nasty breaking ball to go along with his plus changeup. Would love to see him take that fastball and hit Grey.” Not cool, man! In a 15-team, mixed league, I grabbed him and I felt unhinged even as I was doing it, but I need something to Bello about.
