Cole Gets His Jolly Rogers On The U.S.S. Mariner

Gerrit Cole's start yesterday -- 9 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.78 -- wasn't the most impressive start.  *walks around, shaking people out of their slumber*  Hey, what's going on, guys and five girl readers?  Was it the opening sentence?  Okay, so Gerrit Cole didn't look as good as, say, Dylan Bundy over five innings.  Cole looked solid, salt-of-the-earth, lumberjack...

Trade Deadline Collateral Damage: Prospects On the Move

Oh the deadline, where championships are dreamed about, and futures are mortgaged. Is there ever a time where the worlds of redraft and dynasty collide more? You have your redraft owners hoping their closers don't lose their jobs, or that their hitters, and pitchers are moved to better surroundings. The dynasty owners are worried about those same things, but also hoping their blocked...

DraftKings: Double Duff

I just couldn’t help it, it was staring me right in the face. As I was going through the options for tonight’s slate and eliminating the ones that I have zero shot at rostering (Adam Wainwright, Archie Bradley) I kept looking at Duffey and Duffy as options and the double dose of Duff alliteration potential was too much to pass up. Danny Duffy and Tyler Duffey are more than...

2016 Fantasy Football — Breakout Candidate: Duke Johnson

My official 2016 Breakout Player of the Year is Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson. He is as dynamic and explosive as any back in the league. Not only is he an explosive home run hitter on the ground, Johnson is a natural pass-catcher and hard-nosed blocker. He’s been so good in the passing game this offseason that the Browns are actually lining him out wide in certain...

Hall of Fame Index: Miguel Cabrera

As we move through the diamond (in reverse) we come to find some commonalities between players that should not have been put in the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame Index is similar to other systems in that it attempts to distill the effects of time and place. One of the pitfalls of looking at traditional numbers is that many of them are what could be referred to as opportunity statistics...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Breaking Down the Aroldis Chapman Trade

The New York Yankees officially traded closer Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs Monday, a trade that many anticipated would happen. It had long been known that the Yankees were taking calls on Chapman, and that whether or not they were waving the white flag this season, he seemed to be the odd man out in the Bronx. This comes as no surprise, considering Chapman is a free agent...

Hope Toronto’s Ready For Some Upton Funk

Oh man!  So close to a Joel Youngblood sighting!  Melvin Upton was traded from the Padres to the Blue Jays, a team they are currently facing.  Is it me or does it seem like this year the teams are so cheap, they're not even using their cell minutes.  If they're playing against a team, then they're trading with them.  That's it.  Surprised the Indians haven't been more active...

Toronto Blue Jays Acquire Melvin Upton Jr. from San Diego Padres

The Toronto Blue Jays added some key depth to their bench when they acquired San Diego Padres outfield Melvin Upton Jr. in exchange for minor league pitcher Hansel Rodriguez. The move marks another in a long line of moves for the Padres this season as they have managed to barter off a number of veterans this season. The move was the second significant move the Blue Jays have made...

One Man’s Trash: Chill Out With The Iceman

This week's most added fantasy player, Cleveland Indians outfielder Tyler Naquin (51.5% owned; +33.1% over the past week), isn't like the majority of the most popular fantasy players to be plucked off of the waiver wire throughout the course of the MLB regular season. Despite being a mid-first round pick out of Texas A&M in the 2012 MLB draft, he was never really considered to...

RCL Update: The Week That Was, Week 16

The prospects are coming, the prospects are coming!  What fun the end of week 16 brought.  I, for one, was so excited that I happened to catch the news on Twitter of Manuel Margot being pulled in the 4th inning of his game that I totally whiffed on the David Dahl news.  Turns out Manny Margot just had a bum foot...awesome.  Now these Hippos are almost entirely Dahl-less in the...

DraftKings: Bettis Can’t Play The Trumbone

If I were to have asked you prior to the start of the season, who would lead the majors in home runs on July 26, you probably would have said, "Harper, Stanton, or Bautista." Hey, all of those are fair names. In fact, Encarnacion, Frazier, or Arenado would have made great choices as well. But, would any of you picked Mark Trumbo? Highly unlikely. It appears as though Trumbo is the...
