Two-Start Pitchers, Week 9: Cole The Door!

First off, hopefully you understand the connotation of this article's title from last Sunday. Potential spoilers ahead? Maybe? Second, I mean, damn it! Really, Bran? Ya had to do Hodor like that? Third, he really did hold that door. Standing O and hats off to you, gentle mini-giant. You own the episode. For the first time ever Game of Thrones fans experienced an emotional heart...

Urias’ Chinese Finger Traps Fantasy Owners

Greetings! Ahhh, nothing quite like receiving the honor of writing the Friday night roundup. I imagine its quite similar to receiving the Medal of Honor, the Purple Heart, or maybe a Nobel Peace Prize. It certainly feels a heckuva lot better than the pride of Julio Urias' owners on this fine Saturday. Yeah, Urias was a real spark plug for Dodger nation last night..Sorry, did I say...

Bullpen Report, Week 8 – Thumb In The Diekman

The change in Texas has reverbed into the Holds ranks as well.  Tolley was the guy, now Frank Perdue’s arch-nemesis Sam Dyson is all comfy in the save bird seat.  The best part of this whole deal is that Jake Diekman is reaping all the benefits from a fantasy hold perspective.   Please, blog, may I have some more?

Fantasy Baseball Final: May 27, 2016

Gambling and sports go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. Daily fantasy sports are a sort of gambling, but they’ve made it fun and if you do your homework you can do it without losing your shirt in the process. The garden variety betting on games gambling just doesn’t make sense to me for baseball. With 162 games on the docket, there is just too much unpredictability...

Waiting For Bregman, And Some More Urias Analysis

As the weeks go by, all of you will notice that these posts will be increasingly more influenced by your questions, and the players you the readers and commenters show interest in. In the same way, all that attended a New Kids On The Block concert in 1990, were dubbed honorary "Newest Kids", you are all my Shitz Stiks, and will be such forevermore. So it is with great excitement...

DraftKings: Uri…YES!

Well, it finally happened, the long wait is over. Wait a minute, this isn’t right at all. It’s only been three years since the Dodgers signed, a then 16 year old, Julio Urias and we haven’t stopped hearing about him since. The comparisons to fellow Mexican Dodgers hurler, Fernando Valenzuela, might be getting a bit ahead of ourselves. Will there be Juliomania? Perhaps...

NotUrias B.I.G. Gets His Shot On West Coast

I missed out on Julio Urias in all of my leagues.  Shame because I was just looking at his stats the other day -- 9.8 K/9, 1.8 BB/9, 1.10 ERA and I was like, "Those can't be real," and he winked at me.  An interminable wink.  And I was like, "Are you winking that those stats are real or are you winking at me that they're not?"  He didn't answer, he just kept winking.  So, I...

Fantasy Baseball Final: May 26, 2016

A lot has happened in the last week and it can be difficult to prioritize the news. We should probably start with the major news from today. The Dodgers have recalled Julio Urias presumably to join their starting rotation and will make his debut against the Mets Jacob DeGrom. Obviously, that will be one of the more anticipated matchups of the season. Urias was ranked as MLB.com...

Bear or Bull: Will Zack Continue His Ratio Attack?

It wasn't supposed to be this way. The ace who just last year produced the lowest ERA (1.66) in a single season among qualified starting pitchers since Greg Maddux in 1995 and the lowest WHIP (0.84) since Pedro Martinez in 2000 wasn't supposed to struggle like this. But things haven't exactly gone according to plan for Zack Greinke since signing a six-year, $208 million contract...

Rocky Road!

Hey you guys! If you're anything like me, you've seen Goonies about a hundred times. The movie is a legitimate classic, and according to the rumors, a sequel is in the works. If they are looking for someone to play Sloth, look no further than Julio Urias. Yes I know, that is awful, but I felt it had to be done. I know he had surgery on that eye last year, but maybe it was all...

Devon Travis > Goins/Barney Travesty

Devon Travis was activated from the DL yesterday (1-for-4, 1 run).  Be interesting to see what he can do in his return from shoulder surgery.  Shoulder surgery never really stopped anyone from doing well before.  "Yes, Michael Brantley?  Ask your question.  Okay, if you're not going to ask your question, at least put your arm down.  You can't put down your arm?  Oh."  The...

The Dark Knightmare

Yesterday, Matt Harvey (5 IP, 5 ER, ERA up to 6.08) briefly held the honor of having the worst ERA of any National League starter at 6.08, which means Harvey is the only one happy with Shelby Miller this year.  It's time we addressed the giant imaginary rabbit in the room, Harvey.  The Mets thought that Harvey's problems were mental and considered burning all of his locker's contents...

One Man’s Trash: Valencia Is Ripe for the Pickin’

This week's most added player in ESPN leagues, Oakland A's third baseman Danny Valencia (63.8% owned; +36.4% over the past week), has undergone quite the transformation over the last calendar year. Prior to the 2015 season, he was just a part-time player who mashed left-handed pitching in the Ryan Raburn/Scott Van Slyke mold. From his MLB debut in 2010 through the end of the 2014...

DraftKings: In Trout We Trust

While Bryce Harper is ice cold, Major League Baseball's other superstar, Mike Trout, is heating up. Over the last seven days, Trout is batting .370 with two home runs and gets a cake matchup on Tuesday night. It may be tough to fit Trout into your lineup given his price tag, but it's going to be worth it. Trout is like a tall glass of water. He's a beacon of light on the hill. A...
