Creeper of the Week: Get Out of Your Rutledge With Some Josh-ing

Hello Razzballers! Happy Sunday before the non-waiver trade deadline. *Pops party popper* Today I bring you a Creeper that feels more like a buy, but because Josh Rutledge is only 7.4% owned, he qualifies for my purposes. This is the time of the year that we need to make moves fast, cut the dead weight and change how we value our players ROS. When an opportunity arises we need to...

Fantasy Roundup: Shortstop Replacements

Rutledge may not have Tulo’s bat, but he has his at-bats! (Photo: Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports) Troy Tulowitzki has been out of the lineup since Saturday and was placed on the DL with a thigh strain. There is no estimated time table for his return. If you own Tulowitzki you have to hold onto him, but his replacement, Josh Rutledge, is a very intriguing fantasy replacement in...

Who Is Josh Rutledge?

Earlier this week, the Rockies sent Josh Rutledge to Colorado Springs. To be certain, Rutledge was not playing well, and there is a decent chance that Rutledge really isn’t that good in general. Then again, he may also need to just figure out who he is. He was semi-rushed to the majors, as he skipped Triple-A, and there is anecdotal evidence that his game has changed since his...

Josh Rutledge, 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

For whatever reason the Rockies never gave Eric Young Jr. a fair shot at an everyday playing job. I'm pouring out some of my forty-oh for EY. Okay, enough of that sob story. What is this a Lifetime movie? Sheesh! BTW, if I ever had a son, I'd name him Sheesh. Talk about the annoying looks he would get. "Sheesh, where are you?" "I'm on my way other...
