The Shark: Draft and Release

It's almost time to think about next year. I don't mean that as an A's fan — that works too — but more in the terms of keeper and dynasty leagues. Keeping pitchers can be a very risky proposition given their tendency to get injured, making the call on a pitcher a tricky one. For now, lets take a look at current Chicago White Sox and soon-to-be free agent Jeff Samardzija. Other...

Crawford Goes Bombie Dearest

Yesterday, Brandon Crawford went 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs with two homers (17, 18). Crawford has a big flashing sign over his head that reads, "Career Year." Under said sign, he has a smaller sign that reads, "Or could this be a legitimate breakout?" Under that sign, there's yet another sign that reads, "There is no third sign." Then under that there's a smaller sign that reads...

Daniel – Son of Chuck, and the Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 18

When Chuck conceived his son Daniel Norris, he was working on set in Asia with Mrs. Norris still living in the US!  Wait, did that make any sense...  I'll leave the Chuck Norris jokes to the frat boy posters... Traded to the Tigers along with another nice upside pitcher Matt Boyd, Detroit got some pretty good arms for a rental and they wasted no time throwing Norris right into...

SAGNOF Special, Week 18: Our Long Nationals Nightmare Has Begun

Maybe the worst thing to happen on the trade deadline was something that didn't happen.  Carter Capps to the Yankees would have been stupendous.  I wanted to see the media and baseball people lose their mind over Capps' delivery and I think that's exactly what would have happened had he ended up there.  But the thing that really has fantasy baseball managers in a tizzy is Jonathan...

Fantasy Roundup: Fallout of the Trade Deadline

The trade deadline this season was far from boring with plenty of faces finding new homes. Plenty of moves were made, and while they cannot all be recapped in this article, I will discuss the potential impact of several trades moving forward and other standout performances of late.

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Trade Deadline Winners and Losers

With the dust settled on the non-waiver trade deadline, it is time to take stock on the winners and losers of the deadline. Unlike some publications, I will split the winners and losers between the buyers and sellers. Buying and selling is completely different, so it is completely unfair to compare buyers and sellers together. We will have two winners and two losers in each category...

Fantasy Baseball Final: August 2nd, 2015

Don’t sleep on trades for August. July 31st was only the deadline for non-waiver trades. There are always plenty of moves made after August 1st. One of the many things that some fans misunderstand is that there technically isn’t any trade deadline from here on out until the end of the regular season. Teams must set their playoff rosters before August 31st, but otherwise they...

Ambulance Chasers, Week 18: Wilson Drifts Away

According to IMDB, Tom Hanks' character spent 1500 days alone on the island. We don't have that much time left in a baseball season — although I'd love to see small sample size debates still raging around the 700 day mark — but like Hanks, we did just lose a Wilson. C.J. Wilson, Angels: The 2015 season is over for the southpaw as he is expected to undergo surgery to address...

Fantasy Baseball Final: August 1st

Fantasy baseball final: August 1st It is becoming difficult for me to find ways to explain how good Carlos Correa is at this point. He hit two more home runs on Saturday, his 11th and 12th of the season, and has solidified himself as the main piece of the Astros lineup. He has just 184 at bats this season and ready has 12 home runs while hitting .298 on the year since being called...

John Gets the Axford

After blowing his fifth save Thursday night, giving up three walks and two runs in the ninth, John Axford has now blown four save chances in his past five appearances. Colorado Rockies Manager Walt Weiss said Friday that John Axford would be removed from the closer role. But from the looks of the quote, it sounds like Axford could potentially gain the job back, especially if the...

Fantasy Baseball's Best Starting Pitchers Since the All-Star Game

Alex Anthropolous is making a run at the brass ring and he continued to add to his already loaded lineup by acquiring relief pitcher Mark Lowe from the Seattle Mariners and Ben Revere from the Philadelphia Phillies.
