In my constant quest to further the collective fantasy baseball intellect the world over (does that sound too preachy?) I sometimes submit guest posts to other fantasy sites. One of those sites, Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks, accepted a guest post I wrote on December 22, 2012 titled “You Should Let Someone Else Draft Jered Weaver.” I don’t like being repetitive if I can avoid it — by the way this is out 1,088th post here on Baseball Professor so I guarantee I’ve been repetitive dozens of times before this — so instead of rehashing everything I wrote about Weaver less than two months ago, I’ll include an excerpt from my previous ramblings.(Also if you haven’t checked out Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks you should give them a try.)Last season Weaver spun 220 spectacular innings, fooling opponents to the tune of a 2.81 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and .213 opponents batting average all while racking up 17 wins for the Angels. It was his second straight sub-3.00 ERA season and his third straight year ...
BEST OF MAXIM

Kay tweeted out the photo along with...

In his final game with Texas, Josh Hamilton was booed by his home crowd after going 0-for-4 in a wild-card round loss to the Orioles. After the comments he made Monday, he can expect the same reaction when he returns to Arlington in a different uniform.

Plenty of offseason moves for a team that disappointed by not making the playoffs. If they miss again, the payroll might rise to $900 billion.

The Los Angeles Angels made the big splash this past offseason by signing Josh Hamilton away from the Texas Rangers. Very few questioned the validity of the baseball side of the deal, figuring that a healthy Hamilton is still one of the best hitters in baseball. Hamilton has often struggled with staying healthy, especially last season which saw him begin on a tear, and then had different...

SURPRISE, Ariz. Who cares?
That's what someone tweeted to me in the afternoon Monday in response to Josh Hamilton's comments about baseball atmosphere and fanbase in the Metroplex.
Unfortunately for that person, plenty of people care. And maybe the reason they care is proof of how much the area has become a baseball hotbed.
We won't use the phrase baseball town here...
Josh Hamilton has had his fair share of ups and downs both in life and his baseball career. He has been worshipped and booed by Texas Rangers fans in the same season, but something tells me he’ll be hearing more of the latter when the Los Angeles Angels visit Texas on April 5.
For starters, fans tend to frown upon players leaving their team for more money — despite the fact that...
