He came into the league in 2007 with a 99 mile per hour fastball and a nasty slider. Joba took the league by storm, posting a 0.38 ERA as a rookie in 19 appearances. Since his rookie year, Joba’s play has declined. He has posted an ERA over four in three of the last four seasons. This year, Joba returns with a new secret weapon: a serious stache. Joba’s new facial hair is nothing to take lightly. It is one of the fiercest mustaches the MLB has seen in a while. Joba used to intimidate hitters with his 99 mph fastball.

If I was at the plate against Joba and his new stache, I know I’d feel uncomfortable in the box.

Sleeper at 3B/SS: Eduardo Nunez

You may have lost Hanley Ramirez, Brett Lawrie, or Derek Jeter for the start of the season.  And, if you’re anything like me, you neglected to draft a back-up for that position. If you’re in that unenviable spot, check your waiver wire for guys like Alcides Escobar, Jean Segura, and Kevin Youkilis. If they don’t tickle your fancy, there’s a healthy player on the New York...
