On the Farm, Week 22: Prospect Risers of 2014

As I get ready to close out the year of “On the Farm” my last two articles will focus on players that improved the most over what they did in 2013 and players who saw their stock fall. This is not a list of players in terms of who I think has more skill or is more valuable in a dynasty format; it’s simply a measure of who improved the most or declined the most. As always there...

DraftKings – Thank You Trevor, May I Have Another?

I’m a Twins fan (we comin’ in 2016), but I have little trouble picking on Trevor May, who has gotten knocked around like a guy in Knockaround Guys (never saw – looked dumb). Through his first four career starts (14.1 IP), May holds an 8.79 ERA and 8.16 BB/9...no bueno. He actually didn’t walk anyone his last time out, but May was so concerned with throwing strikes, he ended...

Fantasy Roundup: I Believe in Mike Minor

Mike Minor still knows how to pitch. Prior to yesterday’s game his statistics suggested otherwise (4.90 ERA and 1.48 WHIP). In early August the Braves skipped his start so he could “clear his mind.” Yesterday he looked like the pitcher he was last year. The changeup had good break to it. The curveball was a true bat misser (partly because the Mets hitters were not picking it...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Brad Boxberger, The Next Great Reliever?

Source: Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images North America Relievers don’t garner much interest unless they occupy the closer role. It’s just the way it is. As we know, though, closers – and bullpens in general – change on a whim. So, this week, I’ve spent a lot of time planning for next year, or at least thinking about it. In Tuesday’s Rookie Report, I focused mainly on Ken...

Jay Bruce Makes My Bowels Loose

I thought Jay Bruce was a lock for 30/100 not dirty undies. Thirty-hundo not dirty-undies! All year Bruce Stinksteen has been behind "Born to Run" Billy Hamilton, Todd Frazier, who's classically rocking out and Learning to Fly, and Devin "Is That Your Face Or Are You Wearing Wax Lips?" Mesoraco, who had a breakout season. And, here, Jay Bruce is less appetizing...

Roster Moves I Actually Made: Gearing up for the Playoffs

Hey everybody! I’m back! It has been about four weeks since I last wrote an entry in this series. First, I traveled through Viking Country (Sweden, Norway and Denmark) for two weeks. Lovely countries. Then, I moved into a new house, my first house, and have inherited a honey-do-list longer than Eric Hosmer is bad. For the record, chopping down seven trees (done professionally)...

Fantasy Roundup: Wainwright Stuggles Again

Photo: Wikipedia Adam Wainwright’s fantasy owners must be shaking their heads as he had yet another disappointing start. Since the beginning of August he’s posted a 5.20 ERA and 1.44 WHIP (six starts and 38.1 innings). When an elite pitcher struggles the first thing I look at is the velocity on the fastball; is it relatively the same velocity this year as last year? In Waignwright’s...

DraftKings – Hey, McHugh, Get Off Of My Cloud

And get into my DraftKings roster. When I was 19-20 years old, we used to go to my buddies house and drink 40's in his side yard. With nothing else better to do, we would just get wasted, smoke cheap cigarettes and try to entertain each other anyway we could. This would consist of telling jokes, watching TV on a 6 inch black and white or lighting things on fire. One day my buddy...

‘Dead Arm’ Is Why Adam Waned, Right?

Adam Wainwright went 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks as he was out-dueled by Jeff Locke (7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks). Wainwright being out-dueled seems to be the norm lately. In August, his ERA is 5.17 and he says he's going through a 'dead arm' phase. Ways that a dead arm could help (in no particular order): tricking a zombie while playing dead, making your...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Aug 27

Yesterday I suggested a Giants stack against Jorge De La Rosa plus Matt Shoemaker in the rotation. Shoemaker and Buster Posey delivered big and my pair of Dodgers chipped in solid efforts, but the rest of the Giants did little. Overall the lineup scored 114.30 points, finished outside of the money in the Daily Moonshot, and won most of its double ups. In terms of rank, it beat 61...

DraftKings – Ace Of Base

Salutations daily fantasy degenerates. I am Dug Fister, the newest member of the Razzball team. The truth is I have been part of Razzball since conception, I was just serving a PED suspension, but i swear Tehol told me they were just Sour Patch Kids that looked like Alex Rodriguez. All jokes aside, I take my DFS very seriously, and want to help the readers prosper and make some...

Top Fantasy Waiver Wire Adds for Week 22

It may be “Back to School” time, but not for us fantasy enthusiasts. You might be looking past your baseball leagues now with the fantasy football season just over a week away. Don’t! There’s still time to make a playoff run or play spoiler if you’re out of the race, and there are still many players worth a look if you want to win your league or knock your rival out. Note...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Aug 28

Your typical shortened MLB Thursday looks pretty bleak with the struggling C.J. Wilson getting the top billing in his start against the Athletics. His 110 rating would normally site around 6-8 in the rankings, but that’s the best we see on a bleak day for pitching. Yusmeiro Petit will face the Rockies at home. As Madison Bumgarner showed in his near no-no, the Rockies don’t...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: August 27th

Welcome to another edition of the daily fix. This week represents the last week of what we might call normal baseball. After August 31st, rosters will expand to as many as forty and trades will no longer happen for most contenders.

Mad-Bum Beats Ski Bums

Madison Bumgarner threw a near-perfect game vs. the Rockies, ending with a one hitter and 13 Ks. Tim Lincecum was the first one to congratulate him, saying, "I'll see you in the bullpen in two months." Then Lincecum laughed, a hallow, empty laughter and his eyes glazed with what appeared to be tears. Yesterday, Bum was so impressive that even Gattis said, "I...

One Man’s Trash: Starting Fiers

This week's hot add was Mike Fiers (+62%). The Brewers hurler has posted a 9.5 K/9 and a 1.8 BB/9 since filling in for Matt Garza in the Milwaukee rotation. The strikeouts are no fluke, as he posted a K/9 of 11.4 in Triple-A this season. While his FIP is a run higher than his current ERA and Steamer is projecting a 3.60 ERA from this point forward, Fiers remains a great pickup...
