Freeman takes his game (and his hugs) very seriously.I am continuing on my mission to create as many lists as possible from now till the start of Opening Day, 2014.To recap the premise, I will pick a topic (or you can help me on my journey by suggesting one) and I will give myself 10 minutes to cut through the baloney and put things together. I promise it will always be short (and not necessarily in rank order), but always pretty good…pretty, pretty, pretty good.Keeping that in mind, here goes with list number 2:The most under appreciated hitters in fantasy for 2013Freddie Freeman — He’s going to have the same stats (or better) as Joey Votto but with a much cheaper price tag.Daniel Murphy — Mr. Met had a .286 BA, 20+ SB and double digits homers (i.e., a better statistical year than Dustin Pedroia).Josh Donaldson -- Ugh, I was never a believer all season long, but looking back on it I would like to tell Josh, “Hey man, that was my bad, you’e a top 5 third baseman, bro.”Hunter Pence –...

This newest pickup goes...

10th Man is MVP of Dodgers Braves Series

Dodger Insider Writer Rodolfo Romo's look at the MVP for NLDS With just a few hours from now until game time, I wanted to look back, perhaps to to remember, perhaps to look forward at the MVP for the series against the Braves.
