Fantasy Roundup: Buyer Beware on Returning SP

Patrick Corbin and Ervin Santana both made their debuts this weekend. Corbin made his debut on Saturday, and it certainly could have gone worse. He threw 76 pitches on the day, 56 of which were for strikes. Given that control and command often elude pitchers returning from Tommy John, it was notable that Corbin didn’t walk a batter. Still, there was obvious rust, which should...

Juan of a Kind and the Top 100 Hitters, Week 14

You can think whatever you want about Juan Uribe. I don't care what anyone thinks, he is one of the most unique players in baseball. A classic character from yesteryear. He has to be a latin 50. Have you seen a pic of him? His player page said 36... looks more like 56. But I ain't hatin'. Have you seen how this pimp rolls? He works that cardigan harder than no other! To elevate his...

Ambulance Chasers, Week 14: Motown Funks You Up

Hopefully everyone else had an excellent Fourth of July! Depending on your local weather, perhaps you spent it lounging in a hammock, lounging in a pool or lounging on the couch. The important part is I hoped you all had a lazy holiday. Miguel Cabrera, Tigers: After spending the day indulging on steaks and burgers, clearly the cows decided to strike back, putting a curse on Cabrera...

DraftKings: King Salazar The Unpredictable

So I just wrote 250 about why you should start Chris Sale. Then It come to my attention that Mr. Sale had been pushed back until Monday. Damn you DFS gods why have you foresaken me. So with Sale being pushed back and Carlos Rodon taking his place it can only mean one thing, I'm going to focus on Danny Salazar. You didn't think I was going to sit here and suggest you start Rodon vs...

Fantasy Baseball Final: July 4th

If You Only Read One Thing… Pitching dominated the 4th of July across the MLB, as there were 13 pitchers that picked up a quality start. It was more of the same for Zack Grienke, as he has now reached 27.2 straight innings without allowing a run to score, as the Dodgers beat the Mets 4-3. David Price was great against a tough Toronto lineup with seven strikeouts over seven innings...

Bour on the 4th of July

Justin Bour celebrated the birth of our nation Friday night by going 2-for-3 with his 10th home run, making that four straight games he's homered. Bour is hotter than a roman candle! He's hotter than a screaming mimi, on top of a snicker blaster with a sparkling spleen splitter igniting a whistling kitty chaser! Thems fireworks, y'all!  I will try to keep it short and sweet today...

Buye Como Va

Don't yell at me! I own Carlos Santana and I know how awful he's been! It makes sense that his name is Carlos Santana, because Carlos Santana looks like Edward James Olmos and the acne scars Olmos has are how deep Carlos Santana's scarred my fantasy soul. Sometimes I wake at night in a cold sweat, frightened that Carlos Santana has found his way on all of my fantasy teams, only...

OPS Leagues: Cogh in the Machine

So, an old boss of mine used to talk about how she was friends with Chris Coghlan. This was back when Coghlan was kind of hip and new. Back when Coghlan won Rookie of the Year (the kind of ROY where we all groan, knowing that it’s probably another Angel Berroa or Bobby Crosby type selection, soon to fizzle out). Anyhow, my boss went to school with him and bragged about it. So of...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Rookie Report – Heaney, Matz and Montgomery

Andrew Heaney – Heaney debuted in the Majors last year for the Marlins, but he struggled in his 29.1 innings, allowing six home runs. So he was traded twice this offseason and ended up an Angel after being dealt to the Dodgers from Miami. Heaney’s 4.71 ERA in Triple-A this year looks bad, but he had some bad luck due to a high BABIP and low left-on-base rate. His FIP was a nice...

Blind Resumes: A Fascinating Keuchel Comp

We all have biases about certain players whether we like to admit it or not. One way to combat this is to take a player’s name away from the numbers before you decide just how much fantasy value they have. I sat down and analyzed a pair of hitters and pitchers and summarized my findings. Player BABIP LD% HR/FB Hard% GB/FB Player A .294 25.2 14.7 32.6 0.61 Player B .285 23.1 8.5...

Bear or Bull: The Bay of Puig

Yasiel Puig might be the most polarizing player in major league baseball right now. Since making his MLB debut in June 2013, the 24-year-old Cuban defector's off-the-field antics, such as repeatedly showing up late for games and displaying a questionable work ethic in the weight room, have angered fans and teammates alike. If you don't believe me, just check out what some of his...

Closer Report, Week 13: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Bullpen

I am equating this one solely on one thing for the Cubbies... and that term is?  Pseudo-intellectual.  Joe Maddon does everything different and it's gotta be the glasses.  He makes everyone want, need or have to be involved in his bullpen.  Basically, he is the united colors of Benetton of managers.  His hydra approach at the bullpen is not only bothersome or troubling for...
