Mark Teixeira on fire since return from DL: Week 6 Fantasy MLB Transaction Trends

A healthy Mark Teixeira is a must own Mark Teixeira. His ISO (SLG%-AVG) is a whopping .286 showing that he’s still got the power. While he’s no longer a threat to steal bases whatsoever, he’s the vital piece needed to drive a top heavy Yankees order. His slash line is pretty much on par with his career averages, and his BABIP is actually slightly below. As long as he can stay...

Tickets For Angels - Yankees Selling For Twice The Price Of Halos Home Average

The New York Yankees took two of three from the Angels the last time the two teams met, but the Yankees have lost four of their last five games since then and dropped game one last night when the Angels drew three bases loaded walks in the bottom of the 8th off three different relievers. The Angels have stayed at .500, but have the second best run differential in the American League...

Laz Diaz once again decided to make a spectacle out of himself last night

On Monday night, Laz Diaz gave the 39,701 fans at Angel Stadium what they wanted when he put on a show in the eighth inning before ejecting Yankees pitcher Shawn Kelley. After Kelley jawed with Diaz for what he felt was a tight strike zone, Diaz spent ten seconds essentially brushing Kelley off and antagonizing him before ejecting him from the game. The crowd roared with pleasure...

Hector Santiago apologizes (a lot) for showing up Mike Scioscia

Pitchers usually wait for the manager to get to the mound before handing him the ball and heading to the dugout. Santiago left the mound well before Scioscia arrived and didn’t even break stride — or look at the manager — as he handed him the ball on the way to the dugout. “Obviously, I kind of disrespected Sosh right there and walked off,” Santiago said. “That’s just...

Roberts’ first homer lifts Yankees after bullpen blows it

Yangervis Solarte drew first blood from Hiroki Kuroda with a fielding error that led to two unearned runs. Next it was Shawn Kelley flushing Kuroda’s win with a blown save in the eighth inning. Surely, Kuroda’s gem would be lost in a defeat because that’s what happens to teams in a rut. Yet, it was Brian Roberts’ first homer as a Yankee that lifted the visitors to a pulsating...

Angels' Joe Smith day to day with side tightness

The new Angels closer Joe Smith has an unfortunate story this week. Smith has had a promising start to his new closer role with the Angels converting all three of his save opportunities. According to Mike Digiovanna of the Los Angels Times, Smith was warming up in the bullpen to get ready for his ninth inning save situation when he started to not feel so well after an energy bar...

In his new book, “The Closer: My Story,” (not to be confused with Kyra Sedgwick’s autobiography of the […] The post Cano on Rivera’s criticism: Yeah,...

Are the Angels stuck with Santiago in the rotation?

Here we go again. Another year, another Angels rotation being weighed down by one particular anchor. Last year, it was Joe Blanton. This year it is Hector Santiago. And just like last year, no matter how bad that pitcher is, the Angels might not have any other choice but stick with him and hope he suddenly gets better. When the Halos made the off-season trade of Mark Trumbo, the...
