Bear or Bull: Will Zack Continue His Ratio Attack?

It wasn't supposed to be this way. The ace who just last year produced the lowest ERA (1.66) in a single season among qualified starting pitchers since Greg Maddux in 1995 and the lowest WHIP (0.84) since Pedro Martinez in 2000 wasn't supposed to struggle like this. But things haven't exactly gone according to plan for Zack Greinke since signing a six-year, $208 million contract...

Rocky Road!

Hey you guys! If you're anything like me, you've seen Goonies about a hundred times. The movie is a legitimate classic, and according to the rumors, a sequel is in the works. If they are looking for someone to play Sloth, look no further than Julio Urias. Yes I know, that is awful, but I felt it had to be done. I know he had surgery on that eye last year, but maybe it was all...

DraftKings: Believe in the O’s

I have a hunch that any baseball player in an Orioles' jersey in Houston on Thursday is going to have a big night. Sure, I'm referring to all the big leaguers, but also to any potential little guys running around with the big orange bird on their chest. If any little league teams are the Orioles, trust me, you'll want to invite all your friends and family to the game tomorrow. It...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: The Revitalization of Chris Tillman

Chris Tillman has pretty much been the definition of league-average from 2013 to 2015. In that time he had a 3.96 ERA compared to the MLB-average 4.01. So, definitely OK, but not very exciting. In 2016 Tillman has, in 10 starts, been quite better than average. In fact, his 2.61 ERA ranks 18th among all qualified starters, and his 3.09 FIP ranks 19th. His 4.00 xFIP tells a different...

2016 Rookie Preview, Part 2: Breakouts and Scrubs

Welcome back to Part 2 of our Rookie Preview, covering the breakouts and "scrubs" of the groups, instead of the studs and the sure things. (Part 1 can be read here.) I'm keeping the same theme from the previous article, but instead of the studs who will be going early or in the middle of our drafts, I will break down the fantasy relevance of each prospect that has significant fantasy...

Devon Travis > Goins/Barney Travesty

Devon Travis was activated from the DL yesterday (1-for-4, 1 run).  Be interesting to see what he can do in his return from shoulder surgery.  Shoulder surgery never really stopped anyone from doing well before.  "Yes, Michael Brantley?  Ask your question.  Okay, if you're not going to ask your question, at least put your arm down.  You can't put down your arm?  Oh."  The...

No Whammies! Week 8: The Return Of The King Of SAGNOF

I live in La La land, aka Hollywood, aka the Land of a Fake Faces...and Butts...and Thighs...and Breasteses. Hey, I don't mind. I'm all for "self-improvement." I liken it to the PED era of MLB. Pitchers were throwing 100 mph and batters were launching home runs 500 feet. As a Dodger fan, I will always remember the electricity when Eric Gagne would come in to close games. It was a...

DraftKings: Pitch Imperfect

First off, no, I haven't watched the movies. I'm old, that movie is for the young and I'm not as in love with Anna Kendrick as you. I mean, I don't hate her? I'd hang with her? She seems fun at parties? Whatever, my point being is that her and her movies are a flavor of entertainment that's either above me or below me, I'm not sure which and I'm not sure I care. Alright, now...

The Dark Knightmare

Yesterday, Matt Harvey (5 IP, 5 ER, ERA up to 6.08) briefly held the honor of having the worst ERA of any National League starter at 6.08, which means Harvey is the only one happy with Shelby Miller this year.  It's time we addressed the giant imaginary rabbit in the room, Harvey.  The Mets thought that Harvey's problems were mental and considered burning all of his locker's contents...

One Man’s Trash: Valencia Is Ripe for the Pickin’

This week's most added player in ESPN leagues, Oakland A's third baseman Danny Valencia (63.8% owned; +36.4% over the past week), has undergone quite the transformation over the last calendar year. Prior to the 2015 season, he was just a part-time player who mashed left-handed pitching in the Ryan Raburn/Scott Van Slyke mold. From his MLB debut in 2010 through the end of the 2014...

DraftKings: In Trout We Trust

While Bryce Harper is ice cold, Major League Baseball's other superstar, Mike Trout, is heating up. Over the last seven days, Trout is batting .370 with two home runs and gets a cake matchup on Tuesday night. It may be tough to fit Trout into your lineup given his price tag, but it's going to be worth it. Trout is like a tall glass of water. He's a beacon of light on the hill. A...
