Will the Real Matt Cain Please Stand Up

Matt Cain's career 93-91 record does not impress anyone. Since he earned a full time job in the San Francisco Giants rotation, only 19 pitchers in all of baseball have won more games, however, just Bronson Arroyo and Paul Maholm have lost more games.  We all know wins and losses are a team effort, but it can skew the view of a players career pretty drastically.#486278051 /...

Bear or Bull: Bullet with Butlerfly Wings

Billy Butler burned his fanboys last year, after a strong campaign in 2012.  I know everyone around here lovingly (or maybe bitterly) calls him “Moobs”, but that probably hurts his feelings… I bet that’s why he started out so slow this year. I am tweaking the categories a bit this time, because this methodology is still a work in progress.  Here are some quick notes on...

Albert Pujols Joins 500 Home Run Club

Since 2001, Albert Pujols rookie season, no one in baseball has hit more home runs.  Alex Rodriguez (465), Adam Dunn (444), David Ortiz (415) and Alfonso Soriano (407) are the only others to have hit 400.  Pujols has homered against every team in the MLB, except his former club, the St. Louis Cardinals.  We know Albert has been the best in baseball for a long time now, but to...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Daily Fix April 23rd

It’s still early in the season, so we are still learning the ropes over at Draftstreet. We’ve talked about stacking before and the folks over at Draftstreet are on to that strategy. So, they’ve limited you to four players from any one team in the starting lineup. I found out that little nugget when I tried to pick on Mike Pelfrey in tomorrow’s game. Sadly, Draftstreet wouldn’t...

J-Fer Puts Atlanta In The Miami Vice

The H is O! Oh, no, Jose Fernandez has me so jazzed, I need to bust some rhymes. I came in the door, I said it before. I never let a top starter magnetize me no more, but watching Fernandez yesterday is biting me, fighting me, inviting me to want a number one starter just this one time. I can't hold it back, I'm looking at his pitching line -- 8 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners...

White Sox Lose Left-Hander Chris Sale To Disabled List

The Chicago White Sox placed star left-handed starting pitcher Chris Sale on the disabled list Tuesday afternoon due to a flexor muscle strain. This news is actually a relief though as Sale had thrown 127 pitches against the Boston Red Sox a few days prior and the organization along with the young lefty admitted that they were both worried that the injury could have been much worse...

Update On Cincinnati Closer Aroldis Chapman

According to John Fayman the Cincinnati Reds closer, Aroldis Chapman, threw a 45 pitch bullpen session on Sunday. As far as we know, it went well and he will most likely attempt live batting practice on Wednesday. Assuming the live practice throwing session goes off without a hitch, he should start a rehab assignment in the minors soon after.  For everyone that still took a chance...
