I love Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, it’s so easy to see the last 30 days stats! Who has been absolutely raking the last 30 days?  Let’s take a look. The leader in RBI’s the last 30 days is a tie between Pedro Alvarez and Paul Goldschmidt both have 29. Home runs are also a tie, Chris Davis has 12 and so does Jay Bruce, Jay Bruce, WOW! Stolen bases is a landslide, the oft injured Jacoby Ellsbury has 19 steals, 6 more than Everth Cabrera who is on the DL. The following players have 1 or less homers in the last 30 days.  Justin Upton (remember how hot he started), Alex Rios, Brandon Belt, Justin Morneau, Ben Zobrist, Aramis Ramirez, Martin Prado, Manny Machado, Billy Butler, Starlin Castro, Alex Gordon. Who has the most wins in the last 30 days, I hope you are sitting down.  Bartolo Colon has 6, you have to be kidding me.  His 30 day ERA is 1.23, ridiculous. Jim Johnson leads with 12 saves, a gaggle of closers chase him with 8. Max Scherzer and phenom Matt Harvey lead with 47 k’s, the only d...

Oakland Athletics’ Bartolo Colon Is Having Best Season Of Career

  Bartolo Colon is pitching better than he ever has. The former CY Young winner has not only retained his form, and I`m not referring to the ever growing belt size, but he has improved. When you learn a little more about this forty year old right hander many eyebrows will be raised on how Bartolo is maintaining such a great season. Bartolo is a fastball pitcher, and one who throws...

Hoping a day off fixes what ails the Reds

Yesterday, the Cincinnati Reds didn’t play baseball. At least, I assume they didn’t. With them being on their first west coast trip of the season, the games start so late that I could easily miss them. The Reds have been struggling lately, which is never how you want to see them when they’re heading out west. My, there’ve been some seasons lost out west. That won’t happen...

Jordan Norberto And The Non-Disciplinary Grievance Process

We’ve focused a great deal of attention lately on MLB’s power to suspend players involved with Biogenesis and the grievance procedure available to those players who are suspended for violation of the Joint Drug Program. But the collective bargaining agreement provides for a separate and distinct grievance process for all sorts of non-disciplinary matters — namely, disputes...

Report: Bud Selig Dodged Court Papers Relating to Athletics-San Jose Lawsuit for Three Days

Back in 2009, MLB commissioner Bud Selig appointed a special commission to look into the challenges relating to getting the Oakland Athletics a new stadium. The hope was that it would also break the stalemate between the A’s and San Francisco Giants as to the latter’s territorial rights claim on the city of San Jose. More than four years later, the commission has yet to be heard...

Delgado, D-backs look to finish sweep of Reds

If the Diamondbacks are to finish off their first home sweep of the Reds in 10 years, they likely must find a way to end Mat Latos' dominance at Chase Field. The D-backs will be looking to do both while trying to match a season high with their fifth consecutive victory and hand the Reds a fourth straight defeat Sunday. One night after Arizona (41-33) pounded out 15 hits in...

Latos, Reds salvage final game in Arizona, 4-2

Reds-Athletics Preview

While the Oakland Athletics have stumbled of late, manager Bob Melvin is hoping a much-needed day off will help them regroup.
