Closer Report, Week 21: The S.S. Wilhelmsen

The Mariner bullpen has basically been that round-up ride at your local carnival.  It doesn't look that bad until it totally messes with your vertigo and you end up spewing up kettle corn and other assorted goods for two hours there after.  Last year, the Mariners bullpen had a 2.60 ERA, good for tops in the MLB.  They also saved 51 games to only 11 blown saves.  They were all...

This Just In, Verlander Not Bad At All

*swirls a glass, takes a gulp. spits it back in a bucket*  "That's vintage Justin Verlander," said Kate Upton.  "Okay, this might sound gross, but can you spit into my mouth?"  That's you getting up the nerve to say something to Kate Upton.  I just thought of a moneymaking idea for Shark Tank!  You stand outside of Comerica Park with a cardboard cutout of a naked Verlander and...

DraftKings: Shelby Miller’s Favorite Ice Cream is Rockies Road

Look, I'm all about facts here. I have my sources *googles Shelby Miller's favorite ice cream...finds nothing...looks under google images...randomly finds naked women...stops writing for a while to do further research* Well, looks like my sources failed me. I can't verify anything about Miller's cold dessert of choice but I can verify some other, more factually laden and potentially...

Waiver Wire Treasures (Including A Pitcher Who Will Win Your League!)

The season may be winding down, but that is when the waiver wire can be your best, and sometimes, only friend. This list is by no means a complete listing of all the players that I think can help in a meaningful way down the stretch, but after quickly glancing over at some ESPN ownership percentages I couldn’t resist pointing out these few things that really jumped off the page...

I’m Hoping Carrasco’s Tender Shoulder Involves Roast Pig

It feels like only yesterday when everything was right in the world.  An animated blue bird landed on my window ledge and sung to me about boobies and other things the republicans want to make illegal, then another animated bird joined him and sung to me about foie gras and other things the democrats want to make illegal, then a centrist animated bird landed and said a lot of...

Fantasy Baseball Final: August 25, 2015

Photo Credit: slgckgc IF YOU ONLY READ ONE THING… Yoenis Cespedes led the Mets’ offense to another victory a night removed from their record setting night in Philadelphia. After Monday’s eight home run outburst, Cespedes hit a two-run bomb to center field to put the Mets ahead 2-0 in the first inning. While all of the Mets additions at the trade deadline have been pivotal...

One Man’s Trash: The Shawshank Redemption

While the 2015 version of the Boston Red Sox has been a complete disaster for the most part, one redeeming element of this year's team has been the surprising play of rookie Travis Shaw (+37.4%), who was the most added player in fantasy baseball over the past week. Entering yesterday's play, he's been one of MLB's best offensive players in the 2nd half of this season, producing...

DraftKings: INXCES

So you’re telling me if the Mets played in Coors field every night, they’d be the highest scoring team in baseball instead of bottom 5, where they were pre-Coors? Huh, 33 runs in 3 games ain’t too shabby and I hope you benefited from Yoenis Cespedes’ onslaught Friday night. I managed to somehow cash without him, but I couldn’t touch the top spots. The Mets have clearly...

The Sun Goes Down On Soler

Jorge Soler is likely done for the year with a strained oblique.  This is one of those injuries that comes with a sigh of relief.  Yay, I don't have to keep running Soler out there and being disappointed.  Disappointment, you are the mistress of expectation, aren't you?  Soler fascinates me in a car crash that you rubber neck while you pass sorta way.  Here's a preseason tweet...

Fantasy Baseball Final: August 24th, 2015

Walk off wins are en vogue. I’m not quite sure who first coined the phrase walk off win, but there is no more exciting moment in baseball. Chicago Cubs rookie Kris Byrant had the pentultimate walk off moment with the walk off home run early in the afternoon. The rookie hit his 20th home run on the season and showed why many have him pegged as the National League Rookie of the Year...

Fantasy Roundup: Santana’s Subpar Season

Yoenis Cespedes Yoenis Cespedes, and for that matter much of the Mets team, had a monstrous weekend in Colorado. Much of Cespedes’ damage was done Friday night when he recorded five hits, scored five runs, hit three home runs, and drove in seven runs. Those numbers are a pretty good week from a fantasy player, let alone a stat line for one night. Cespedes hasn’t really gotten...

Podcast: Rudy’s Dark Wizardry Finally Exposed

And it wasn't as dark as I expected. A little more mathy and computery I suppose... then again, I don't really understand that stuff any how, so it might as well be dark and wizardry. If you hadn't guessed from the title, Rudy joined me on the Pod to go over baseball thing-a-ma-jigs. We touched on the Mike Trout and Bryce Harper conundrum that Grey and I discussed last week, the...

SAGNOF Special, Week 21: The Wilhelmsen Scream

SAGNOF just keeps finding ways to stay absurd.  Tom Wilhelmsen, Jean Machi, John Axford = good.  Carson Smith, Junichi Tazawa.... even Greg Holland = bad.  If all you care about are saves there's been a wealth of options available.  Realistically, I think chasing saves with bad closers can be a losing proposition.  What do the first three (the so called "good") have in common...

DraftKings: A Robbie Ray Of Hope

It's not often we look to Arizona for help in the pitching department. I mean, we've lovingly referred to Chase Field as Coors in the desert, Coors Lite (cuz when you make a reference, it's gotta be about beer even when it's bad, amirite?), Rocky Mountain High at Sea Level...hrm, that last one I've never heard but maybe it'll become a thing now? Whatevs, the point is, it's a bit...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Week 21 Two-Start Pitchers

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 week. Most pitchers see the mound once a week, but if you want to maximize the number of starts per week, it’s important to look for pitchers pitching twice and exploit favorable matchups if they exist. With that being said, let’s take...
