Playoffs?! What We’ve Learned So Far

The first round of the NBA Playoffs wrapped up on Sunday, with one awful Game 7 that I think everyone saw coming (I at least figured it was a blowout) and one fantastic Game 7 that seemed like a blowout early on, only to become a thriller.  Paul George isn't elite!  Oh no, we're STILL coming back to that one?! While playoff hoops means very little to the fantasy discussion, there...

Astro Of Nominal Height Flashing Astronomical Might

Jose Altuve is on pace for 60 homers.  He can't even reach the cereal in the morning!  If an opposing manager were to ask to see Altuve's bat, they would crack it open to reveal gumballs because he's the leader of the lollipop guild.  If the major leagues were to institute a Daffy Duck 'You Have To Be This Tall' sign before getting to the batter's box, Altuve would need his...

Fantasy Baseball Final: May 5th, 2016

Parity has taken over the American League. With the exception of the Chicago White Sox, nobody in the league even has a .600 winning percentage. For fantasy baseball players, that means they have to pay attention to every team because every team is capable of going through spurts of good play. The Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers met in last season’s ALDS and both are playing...

NHL Playoffs: Into The Middle, Round 2

The second round has featured some unexpectedly good match-ups but also has a mucked up battle between two bitter rivals in Washington and Pittsburgh. It has also featured a yo-yo series between Tampa Bay and New York along with a Dallas team that still cannot find a goaltender who can stop the puck even somewhat consistently. These are series that have featured tons of oddities...

Bear or Bull: Yasiel Puig

The "five tool" player (having the abilities to hit for average and power, base-running skills/speed, throwing, and fielding) is one who possesses an incredibly rare set of skills. Branch Rickey, who first coined the term in his book The American Diamond, could only name two true "five tool" players at the time - Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle. Essentially, it's a term that refers...

2016 REL Dynasty League Update: Week 5

Happy Cinco De Mayo!  I certainly know I'll be drinking, as my rebuilding Brewers continue to have pitching numbers go down the drain like after a great relief following 5 margaritas.   And I certainly know the co-owners of the Nats are drinking heavy today too!  The Nationals are obliterating the NL league, accentuated by a 13-2 drubbing of the Royals in interleague play yesterday...

DraftKings: Go With the Flow

Jacob deGrom reminds some of your classic surfer boy. He has a serious flow going on underneath that Mets' cap of his, and as some people say, you really should go with the flow when it comes to this guy. On an unrelated side note, if Jacob deGrom was a surfer for real and they had fantasy surfing, I wonder how the scoring would work? Would you get tons of points for avoiding getting...

The Glasnow Is Half Full

It's barely May and we have already seen several anticipated rookie pitchers make their MLB debuts. If memory serves me correctly, it was actually Robert Stephenson who got the first call back on April 7th. After an unimpressive first outing in which he got the win, he was optioned back to Triple A. Yep, his outing was so mediocre that he was sent to fix flat tires in the greater...

No Whammies! Week 5: Stabilization

The first month is in the books. Whew. And what a month it was. If I had the voice of Morgan Freeman, I'd be happy to record a summary of the fantasy baseball world in April. But, alas, I do not. Seriously, Freeman can make anything sound good. The thing I will miss the most is the daily fluctuations in roto league standings. Watching teams move up or down 10-20 points was exhilirating...
