Brian DosHR

Yesterday, Brian Dozier went 3-for-4, 4 RBIs with two homers (11, 12).  Dozier's quietly had a great June (7 HRs, near-.350), after having a miserable May (2 HRs, .215) and an atrocious April (3 HRs, .191).  Who knows what July holds?  Which sounds like the title for a piece of art done by Daniel Johnston.  Let's see, Daniel Johnston describing Dozier.  "June is Fun!  Fun...

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...

Anthony DeSclaFine! …And The Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 12

Ugh, ranking pitchers is so annoying sometimes! You like a guy, he sucks a little, you stop liking him, he then gets better... I'm changing this to monthly rankings here on out, dammit! OK, rant over. Don't worry, I'll stick with the weekly ranks. But after buying into the Anthony DeSclafani hype in the pre-season, to taking him out of my ranks, to then rank him very aggressively...

Finding Nimmo …And The Top 100 Hitters, Week 13

Honestly, it's getting tough pinpointing the Creeper of the Week every seven days at this point of the season. A lot of prospects haven't received the call to the bigs, and the post-draft sleepers are mostly snatched up as we approach July. But...we gotta just keep swimming, because when a prospect gets the call with a certain batting profile, it leads to some hopeful expectations...

DraftKings: The Cobbler Has Walked Down This Path Before

Matt Shoemaker, $9,900, AKA The Cobbler, came out of no where and put up some Ace like numbers in the second half of 2014. He went 9-2, striking out 62 batters in 72 innings, all while posting a nice and tidy 1.87 ERA. I was one of the lucky ones that scooped him up and I road that train all the way to multiple Title Towns. In 2015 he was one Grey's preseason favorites and then...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Week 13 Two-Start Pitchers

Christopher Morais A fantasy owner’s best friend is the waiver wire—where finding value can make the difference between a great week and a very disappointing one. Most pitchers see the mound once every seven days, but if you want to maximize the number of starts per week, it’s important to look for players pitching twice and exploit favorable matchups if they exist. With that...

Captain Nimmo Summoned When Superior Caught Conforto’ing With Enemy

On Saturday, Michael Conforto was demoted to the minors.  Ouch.  Not only did he fall far from preseason expectations, but he seemed to be breaking out in April.  Coming out of April, he had 4 HRs and a .365 average.  In May and June, he hit .169 and .119 and, finally, the Mets threw in the towel just as Conforto's head was bouncing on the canvas.  Shame, isn't it?  Not a...

Fantasy Baseball Final: June 26th, 2016

The Chicago Cubs have been the consensus favorites to win the 2016 World Series since the start of spring training, but major league baseball’s best team have hit a bit of a rough patch in the last week. The club most often compared to the ‘98 Yankees have been struggling as of late, and were faced with the seemingly impossible and daunting task of taking on Jose Fernandez at...

The Hall of Fame Index: Carlos Beltran

For those few who read my last article on the Hall of Fame Index, I hope you will enjoy this second edition. Sometimes it’s fun to take a break from fantasy sports and simply enjoy players that are essentially living legends. Carlos Beltran registers as a career center fielder even though he has been playing in right field the last several seasons. For many, he has been an oft...

DraftKings: The (W)right Way Or The Highway

I swear every time I write it seems like Steven Wright is on the mound and every time I’m here touting him.  Despite an 8-4 record and an AL best 2.01 ERA, Mr. Wright remains the Rodney Dangerfield of pitchers, getting no respect.  Just look at his DraftKings pricing over his past three starts, $12,200 two starts ago, $11,100 last time out and now tonight, he’s at $10,600....

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Joe Ross, Washington’s Little-Known Boss

Joe Ross has probably thrown under the radar his entire life. Younger brother to Tyson and now in a rotation with Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer, Ross has wrongfully received less praise than he deserves. I wrote a little about Ross last year late in the season as he was cruising to a rookie-year 3.64 ERA. You never know with young pitchers what will happen, but this year in...

Bullpen Report, Week 12 – We’ve Got Bush

Whatever your cultivation of choice may be, go with it.  Oscar Gamble was, and is still a pimp in social culture, as is California sensemilia.  So whatever your subset of life is, that's cool with me.  My obsession is a little of column A, a lot of column B, and I incorporate column C.  Column C being my love and passion for the deliverance of the most finite bullpen jargon on...
