photo credit: Keith Allison via photopin cc The finish line is in sight for the Week 25 edition of fantasy baseball 3×3, where we’re giving up on R.A. Dickey and Lance Lynn, finding Will Middlebrooks’ silver lining, and grabbing Colby Rasmus by his luxurious tangled mane. There are plenty of waiver wire columns out there that provide an exhaustive list of the most added players in fantasy leagues. This isn’t one of them. Here, we’ll run down a few lesser-known, lesser-considered, or lesser-owned players, with perspective on who deserves a your attention, who deserves your patience, and who deserves to go straight to bed without dessert. 3 TO CATCH Colby Rasmus | Toronto Blue Jays | OF Colby Rasmus returned from the disabled list playing like his hair was on fire, which for him, is a real danger. Rasmus has socked home runs in each of his first two games back, a welcome sight after he managed only three total homers during a fully healthy July. Of course, in true Rasmusian style, h...

Blue Jays sit Colby Rasmus on Sunday due to 'general body soreness'

Sometimes injuries can be identified as being in very specific areas, and sometimes you have 'general body soreness'. That's what was reported as the reason for Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus sitting out of Sunday's game. Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that Rasmus, who was a late scratch, was just being careful not to push himself too much after recently...

Something We Haven't Considered.....

As I watched RA Dickey undress hitter after hitter, it occurred to me that something beyond Yankee incompetence could be happening.Is it possible that this team has already left the building?That they are, " mailing it in?"I think a number of these players ( one or two, anyway ) remember the humiliation, last play-off season, in Detroit.  Where no one could do anything...

Blue Jays blank Yankees 2-0 behind dominating Dickey

The list of Blue Jays whose seasons will end on the disabled list continued to grow Tuesday with slugger Edwin Encarnacion and all-star reliever Brett Cecil added to the infirmary. But one player who looked destined to join them Colby Rasmus continues to swing the hottest bat in the Jays’ lineup. After spending a month on the disabled list with a strained oblique Rasmus hit his...

Blue Jays play spoiler against Orioles

It’s not a role that any team relishes but it’s all the Blue Jays have right now. They can either be roadkill on some other team’s journey to the post-season or they can be spoilers. Given the option they’ll choose spoiler every time. In that context then Saturday was a good day. Colby Rasmus launched his 20th homer of the season in the seventh inning a two-run shot that...

Yankees Announcer John Sterling Makes Dreadful Home Call On An A-Rod Fly Ball

Yankees radio announcer John Sterling is known for many things including his popular “It is high, it is far, it is gone” home run call, his quirky signature home run calls for individual players like the inventive “Mark sends a Teix message! You’re on the Mark, Teixeira!” and for miserably failing when it comes to knowing if the ball is a home run or not. On Tuesday night...

Preview: Yankees @ Blue Jays (9/17/13)

After getting swept by the Red Sox over the weekend, the Yankees playoffs hopes are fading faster than the old rickety bodies that make up the roster. Andy Pettitte (10-9, 4.04 ERA) gets the ball first against the knuckle baller R.A. Dickey (12-12, 4.36 ERA.) Pettitte has been the Yanks most reliable starter as of late. In his past six starts, the oldest starter in baseball is 3...
