Like Mark Twain Kinda Said, “The Coldest Winter I Ever Spent Was The Last Day Of The Baseball Season”

Yesterday....yesterday....yesterday.... All my fantasy baseball titles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though one is here to stay *sung in a very fast voice* oh, crap, nope, because I drafted Matt Holliday, Oh, why did I believe in Suddenly!  Jacob deGrom's arm is not half of what it used to be. There's a shadow hanging over me, Oh, it's Giancarlo...

Fantasy Baseball Final: September 30, 2016

It seems like yesterday when we were doing our first fantasy baseball final of the 2016 season. Today marks the last one of the season. There were so many great stories we followed as the season went on that it seems unfair to try to pick one to close with. Fortunately, David Ortiz made it impossible to ignore his signature on the 2016 season as the number one story in the sport...

Jake Tried But(t) Pirates Had Their Way With My Ratios

Imagine the Cubs decided to use Lester, Hendricks, Hammel and Lackey in the playoffs, and not Jake Arrieta.  Not sure it would be the wrong move either.  Arrieta isn't just out of gas, he's on a late-70s gas station line, cursing Jimmy Carter.  He's eaten six Chalupas and a Pintos 'n Cheese from Taco Bell, washed it down with a 16-ounce Coke, and can't produce any gas.  He's...

MI Crazy Or Did Jean Valblech Segura Go From Miserables To 20/30?

You literally can't find a middle infielder with less than 20 homers.  You can't.  Try it.  See?  This year there are more players with 20 homers than any other season in the history of baseball.  Some conspiracy theorists have said the new commissioner, Our Manfred, is sticking Capri Sun straws into baseballs and juicing them, but this year is odder than that and deserves a...

Cubs Javier Selves A Merry Little Christmas Yesterday

Yesterday, was the first time the Cubs have won 100 games since 1935.  Though, in 1994, the Cubs were so gonna win the final 49 games if the strike didn't happen, giving them 98 wins, then two losses were going to go under review and get reversed.  What?  My crystal ball is very specific.  Why don't you people believe me?  Kidding, I know you believe me because I can see you...

DraftKings: It’s The End Of The Month So Everything Musgrove!

Well look who's here...Yep, I'm talking to you. It's Sunday and we're both building daily baseball lineups while everyone else is in a fever pitch about the NFL. You know what? I'm more than okay with that. We can start our own support group on Sundays. You know, just the handful of us left that still care about the best game on Earth. We can also talk about how distressed we are...

I Picked Up Conforto Before It Was Cool

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto was 2-for-3 last night, scoring two runs with his 12th home run, and three RBI. Could this be the start of something big? Who's Conforto, you ask? Lol, you pleb--Don’t you know anything? He's just an uber prospect for the New York Mets.  *Sips cold brew coffee, adjust horn rimmed glasses, strokes beard* Sigh. You’ve probably never heard...

DraftKings: Mind The Gap

Tonight should make for a fun decision on pitchers, and by fun I mean, un-fun. There’s the big two of Madison Bumgarner and Clayton Kershaw followed by a mass of mediocrity. The gap between these two and the rest of the field is pretty enormous. I’m tempted to pay up for both of the studs and pay for certainty they bring to the table. Paying up for pitching is nice for cash...

Healy? Um, Worth A Buy But May Combust

Ryon Healy couldn't have come at a better time for the A's.  Their corner infidels were about as weaksauce as they come.  Mark Canha?  More like Can't-hit.  Andrew Lambo?  More like 'that Lambo is bahhhd.'  Yonder Alonso?  More like 'over Yonder' as in everyone's over him in value.  Though, looking at Healy's minor league numbers, he doesn't look much better.  However, Josh...

DraftKings: Secret Ad-Meyer-er

Shhh, can you keep a secret? Please don't let him know. I'll be passing the 'Do you love me? Check yes or no' note to Carlos Perez prior to first pitch so please don't blow my cover, internet, on which I am writing about Alex Meyer for everyone to see. Ok, maybe 'love' is a strong word for a pitcher with only 18.2 career innings and a 7.23 ERA. At 26, the shine is probably off...

Another Ace In Queens Has A Jacked-Up Arm

Steven Matz is likely done for the year after hurting his shoulder again.  I'm not even joking.  I kinda wish I were.  NY Post writer, Joel Sherman's headline, "How Terry Collins broke Matz news to Mets in stirring meeting."  Unless everyone had coffee, creamers and were stirring, Joel, buddy, you're overselling.  Quick aside, sportswriters assume their audience is a bunch of...

Fantasy Baseball Final: September 22, 2016

There is a little more than a week left in the regular season and there is still a lot at stake in both leagues. The wild card hunt is particularly tight in the American League where five teams are fighting for two slots. One thing that is not in doubt is who will represent each division in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Red Sox have won eight games in a row and are now...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: NL MVP Race

The National League Most Valuable Player race is more intriguing than the American League race in many ways. For one, the overall quality of the players in the league is not as good as the American League, so the players are more bunched together. Furthermore, the candidates are more traditional in nature than in the American League. The Cubs (the best team in baseball) have two...

DraftKings: Believe in the Hair

The Cleveland Indians' rotation has taken some major hits in the last week or two, with Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar going out for the season with injuries. Mike Clevinger, he of the most beautiful hair I've ever seen this side of Sampson, starts against the Royals today. They need to find a way to expand their rotation options for the postseason, and I suspect that Clevinger...

Margot Renfroe In The Wolf Of Gaslight District

I don't understand this.  The Padres' Triple-A affiliate made a run for the Triple-A championship against the Yankees' affiliate, so the Padres were holding down their top prospects to play in the championship.  On the surface, it seems straightforward enough.  Making run for championship, want best players there.  Okay, I get that part.  The part where I get lost, WHY DO YOU...
