Rangers May Roundup Hamilton for One Last Rodeo

Not quite done deal just yet, but it's looking like Josh Hamilton is heading home on the Rangers, as the Angels have agreed to paid the majority of Hamilton's giant contact in exchange for Hamilton agreeing to get the heck out of Dodge. The trade would certainly qualify as Woody's rootin-est, tootin-est, roundup in the wild, wild west so far this season. The least cynical of...

DraftKings: Bauer Outage

Saturday's games gives us intriguing SP options with Bauer, Alfredo Simon, and Anthony DeSclafani. Heading that list is Trevor Bauer with his clever and catchy Twitter handle, @BauerOutage. All three of these SP's have started 2015 very strong. Today's match-ups really have me focused on whether they are legit SP's in DFS, or have they just got off to lucky starts. I'll continue...

This Week In Razz…

If you remember (no problems if you don't, since I don't remember at all... alcohol folks), last week, I went over the generic "this is April" schtick that many fantasy players love to hate. But it's true! It is, in fact, April. But to other meaning, it's still way too early to come away with any profound conclusions. True, a whole week has passed by, a whole week I tell ya! But...

Fantasy Baseball Nightly: April 24th, 2015

If you read only one thing….. Two consecutive Friday nights bring Josh Hamilton news. Who knows what kind of a fantasy prospect Josh Hamilton is at this point, but as a human interest story it is most compelling. Hamilton chased the big bucks and bright lights of Los Angeles (and five years, 125 million dollars) and it can only be called a disaster. They said you could never go...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Apr 24

When last we spoke (Wednesday), I was recommending a Cubs stack against Vance Worley and the Pirates. The stack didn’t do so well with Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant scoring 10 and 11 points, respectively, but Starlin Castro and Jorge Soler basically no-showing. Johnny Cueto was great, as expected, Archie Bradley was wild, as expected, and all-in-all the lineup scored a ho-hum 93...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Week 3 Rookie Report

View image | gettyimages.com Toronto’s Devon Travis has been a huge factor for the Blue Jays this season, showing the pop that they lacked last year from their second basemen. This is Travis’s first season in the Toronto system after coming over from Detroit in a trade for Anthony Gose this offseason. The 24-year-old is only 5’9″, but he’s shown a ton of power through...

What’s Wrong With Marte’s Average?

Starling Marte has had an interesting season this far, producing numbers you may have expected more from a power hitting first baseman such as Lucas Duda or Chris Carter. Currently, Marte has as many as home runs as Paul Goldschmidt, Adam Jones, and J.D. Martinez. Of course, that’s not a bad thing. However, he also has just two stolen bases and isn’t inspiring anybody with a...

The Impact Of Jimmy Nelson’s New Curve

The lone bright spot for the Milwaukee Brewers so far this season has been the stellar performance of Jimmy Nelson, who boasts a 1.35 ERA and 0.70 WHIP through three starts. The 26-year-old right-hander has racked up 17 strikeouts while issuing just four walks in 20 innings of work this spring. Nelson’s encouraging early results have been one of the most compelling fantasy storylines...

Tampa Bay Rays Activate Drew Smyly

Closer Report, Week 3: Wade Doing Swimmingly

Imagine a world without Greg Holland.  Okay, got it... because it's here... sorta.  There would be no tulip or windmill jokes and Wade Davis would basically be the freaking mac.  I was interested to see what his numbers really were, since he basically became a full time reliever towards the end of the 2013 season, and up to this date thus far in the season. So over the 89 innings...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 24

Felix Hernandez leads the way in a very favorable start against the Minnesota Twins. At the bottom is a Rangers reliever who’s not accustomed to starting games. Jon Lester at Cincinnati will be a big test, especially if Reds manager Bryan Price let’s Billy Hamilton play (which he didn’t in their matchup earlier this season). For you streamers, beware Scott Kazmir against...
