JOSH HARRISON RUMORS

MLB Daily Fantasy Robopick: Josh Harrison

Over the course of the 2015 fantasy baseball season, I’ve been working with Matthew Boland, a PhD student in Finance, on a daily fantasy sports strategy. With a little bit of economic theory, and a degree of baseball intuition we’ve come up with a formula that helps us put together winning daily fantasy baseball lineups. We’re keeping the full lineups to ourselves, but, will...

Josh Harrison walks off the Phillies (VIDEO)

It was another scoreless struggle between the Pirates and Phillies on Sunday, although this time (unlike Friday) you could actually chalk it up to really good pitching (by Cole Hamels and A.J. Burnett). Burnett, in particular, was incredible, but the Pirates didn’t score in time for his nine shutout inning effort to earn a win. I doubt he minds. (Antonio Bastardo picked up his...

Will the real Josh Harrison please stand up?

This isn’t exactly how the Pittsburgh Pirates wanted their 2015 campaign to start. Yes, the Pirates are relevant again after their brief postseason appearances in the last two Octobers. As of Wednesday night, they are five games over .500, neck and neck with the Chicago Cubs for second place in the National League Central. The long-suffering Pittsburgh faithful are returning to...

Pirates sign Josh Harrison to extension that surprises literally everyone

At noon today I was frantically trying to finish up some lab work and working on getting ready for my four hours of recitation this afternoon when this came across my Twitter feed. I blinked, I scrolled back to see if I missed something, I hit refresh to see if it was a mistake, and then the confirmation tweets rolled in. One day into the 2015 season, one year after Josh Harrison...

Last season was Josh Harrison’s fourth season in the majors though just his first full season. It was also the best season of his entire career at any level.

Watch: Josh Harrison turns spectacular double play

There’s turning the conventional 5-4-3 double play and then there’s what Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison seems to do on a daily basis. With runners on first and second with no outs in the top of the seventh inning, Harrison made a great diving stop on a hit down the line by Cincinnati Reds third baseman Kris Negron. Quickly tapping third base with his throwing...

WATCH: Josh Harrison beats rundown with crazy baserunning

Here is a GIF of the botched rundown/blown call by the umpires #Mets http://t.co/gQ9NFbDI3t — #ImWithTowels (@MetsKevin11) June 28, 2014 Pirates outfielder Josh Harrison is one hell of a baserunner. On Friday’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets, Harrison displayed one of the most amazing base running plays you’ll ever see. In the 10th inning of a tie game...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Why Josh Harrison has been the biggest surprise

Josh Harrison Right field wasn’t exactly a power position for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Both Jose Tabata and Travis Snider were struggling, but then Josh Harrison worked his way into the starting role. The Cincinnati native has often been ridiculed by fans. Many questioned why he was even on the roster and thought he would never be anything more than a minor league baseball player...
