Photo Credit: Keith Allison It’s getting to the point of the fantasy baseball season where your boy Daddy Starbucks starts to grow listless with writing about the sport. Don’t get it twisted, I still plan on winning all my leagues and will follow the game closely, but posts from me on fantasy baseball will begin to become more infrequent. The reason? There’s just not that much cool **** to write about that the smart readers of this website won’t already know.I thought about doing an MLB Real Talk post on Joe Blanton for ******** sake. Look, I like the Philly Blant enough to trust him as a spot starter (or a solid SP in deep leagues), but when suckas like this start gracing the covers of Starbonell posts, it’s quite clear that there isn’t that much cool **** to talk about that hasn’t already been discussed on a million other sites.

Why Hamilton doesn't get Becket treatment

For all the uproar over Josh Beckett's ill-timed golf outing, Josh Hamilton's headfirst slide on a wet tarp in Baltimore last week was probably the more reckless act.

Hamilton...
