Minnesota Twins' Trevor May makes hilarious All-Star campaign video for teammate Brian Dozier

With MLB All-Star balloting wrapping up Thursday at midnight, teams are making a last-minute push to get their players voted in. Teams are begging for votes on social media, creating t-shirts and some are going the extra mile by making unique campaign videos.

Vinny V Barely Goes Longer Than Three, and the Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 12

It's funny how drastic and immediate changes can be from the Minors to the Majors.  Thinking back on Trevor May who was profiled a few weeks back - the guy was walking everyone in the Minors and in his short stint in the Majors last year, to become top-25 in K:BB ratio. But that took some seasoning.  We're seeing something even drastic-er and immediate-er with what's going on...

I’m No Longer JB – So Call Me May-B, and the Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 10

I've used a similar open before, so rounding to the point - there's a ton of players in baseball...  It's why fantasy baseball rules the land - there's no end to how deep it goes (that's what she said!).  You can play 10 team, 12 team RCL, AL and NL only, and I'm hoping to start up a 30 teamer next year.  The possibilities are endless! And even within the abyss of players that...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Rookie Report

Trevor May – May debuted in Minnesota last season starting nine games to the tune of a 7.88 ERA. His FIP and xFIP were in the middle- and high-4s thanks to a ton of home runs and walks, which had been problematic to some degree in the minors. This year he’s already pitched more innings than in ’14, and he’s improved his ERA to 5.07 but more importantly his FIP and xFIP are...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, May 29

Matt Harvery highlights a fairly weak day of pitching this Friday, with just nine of the day’s 30 options rating average or better. Trevor Bauer will travel to Seattle, which is a game in which I’d start him in all formats despite the rankings’ pessimism. Remember, they’re based on Steamer ROS projections and Steamer says Bauer still has a ways to go (4.38 ROS ERA). Jake...

Fantasy Roundup: Scouting Trevor May

May’s high upside makes him a pitcher to watch down the stretch (Photo: When Trevor May got the call-up for the Twins, I was excited to watch his Major League debut against the A’s on Saturday because I love pitchers who have the raw ingredients to significantly outperform their current fantasy value. Prior to 2013 May was always able to miss bats (career...
