Kershaw To DL As Pain From Playoff Berth Push Requires Epidural

The sixth inning of every home Clayton Kershaw start isn't going to be the same.  No longer will Angelenos be filing in as if it's the first, suddenly realizing that Kershaw is pitching, but now they will be stuck talking about everything but baseball for the entirety of the game and not simply 95% of it.  "Ma, can I keep score on the back of my headshot?"  "We're not here to...

Bear or Bull: Johnny Cueto Is An Ace, No?

Johnny Cueto has been a controversial player in Major League Baseball for quite some time. There was that ugly Jason LaRue incident during a Cardinals/Reds on-field brawl in 2010 in which Cueto repeatedly kicked LaRue in the head and ultimately forced the former catcher to retire prematurely. Of course, there's also the issue of his extremely unorthodox windup that has been compared...

Giants To Forgo The DH, Will Let Madison Bumgarner Hit

Who needs a DH when you have...a pitcher? Apparently the San Francisco Giants will decide to ditch the DH despite playing the Oakland Athletics in an American League park and will have Madison Bumgarner hit for himself.So far this year Bumgarner is hitting .175 with two home runs and five RBI in just 40 at-bats. That power is no fluke. Over the last two seasons Bumgarner has hit...

The Hall of Fame Index: Matt Holliday

One of my favorite arguments from popular baseball media folk and fans alike is that they know a Hall of Famer when they see one. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. The history of the voting process is rife with examples of players they have been overlooked because they didn’t “look” like Hall of Famers. This is what the Hall of Fame Index is all about. It’s all...

DraftKings: Just Cruzing to Cash

Some things are easy to pinpoint when it comes to DFS. Overall, chalk plays tend to annoy me. More often than not, they don't pan out the way they should. With that said, Nelson Cruz is chalk on Tuesday and he's going to be in all of my lineups. Cruz is a lefty killer and faces off against Jon Niese and the Pittsburgh Pirates. On the season, Cruz has 19 homers, 10 of which have come...

Gio Gonzalez’s Ratios Too Filling? Try Gio Lito!

Here's what I said this offseason, "Before watching the video on Lucas Giolito, I looked at his vitals.  This is something I don’t usually do.  Doesn’t really matter to me if a guy is six-foot-one or five-ten.  But, dizzamn, Giolito is a strapping young man, huh?  He’s listed at six-six and 230.  He’s only 21 years old, but I think he’s done growing.  Hopefully, cause...
