Daily Pitcher Duels: May 23

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all our dedicated readers! Today we kick off the holiday weekend with some pretty outstanding pitching matchups. Check ’em out: Cole Hamels (PHI) vs. Stephen Strasburg (WAS) 4:05 p.m. ET Both of these pitchers are probably at least a little disappointed in how their seasons have gone to date. Well, in the case of Hamels that disappointment...

MLB Game Picks - Saturday: May 23, 2015

It is the first day of Memorial Day Weekend and I woke up early to play golf...and it is snowing. What!? Snowing!? Sheesh. Anyway, my picks are snowballing too as I went 12-3 yesterday after going 9-3 the day before. I'll take a 21-6 run. The only three incorrect picks were two emotions driven ones. I had the Yankees and they couldn't pitch or field. I had the Cubs and they couldn...

Thursday Thoughts

I haven't done a completely pointless post like this in quite some time.  Guess maybe I will now.-  So Jonathan Nwankwo, one of the Gopher hoops signees for next season, was let out of his letter of intent.  Here's my post from when he originally committed so I won't rehash all that, but this sucks.  There are all kinds of rumors to why, but they all agree on it being an academic...

Tommy Milone proves too good for AAA

Trevor May looks like a much improved version of the player who made his Major League debut last season, Mike Pelfrey has been far better then his low expectations. This leaves Minnesota Twins lefty Tommy Milone without a spot in the team’s starting rotation. With Milone already looking like a possible odd man out, the impeding return of Ervin Santana in early July from a PED suspension...

The Twins are over .500. The hell?

Though being one game over .500 isn't exactly blowing up the league, the Twins had extremely low expectations with a Vegas over/under of 70.5 wins, so being on pace to win something like 84 games represents a substantially better season than expected.  One can't help but wonder how they got here, and if we can expect it to last and maybe see some semi-meaningful baseball in September...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, May 5

Yesterday I recommended Travis Wood at starter plus a hodge-podge of good hitter matchups. A was noted in the comments, Wood at $7,200 was risky pitching on the road at St. Louis, and the risk didn’t pay off as he earned just 3.65 points. The blow-up occurred immediately as the first five batters to face Wood in the game resulted in a hit by pitch, pop out, double, walk, and grand...

Preview: Twins vs. Athletics

Trevor May appeared healthy in his latest start and showed no lingering effects from a bruised right elbow that cut short his prior outing. The Minnesota Twins hitters had one of their best showings of the season in May's last start and continue to shine. The surging Twins look to win six straight games for the first time in four years Tuesday night against a struggling Oakland Athletics...

May Has His Day With Tribe; Twins 7, Indians 2

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? No! The Twins made the most of a three-run second inning, putting T.J. House in a major hole and Torii Hunter put the exclamation mark on a 7-2 victory with a three-run homer in the sixth inning, sending the Tribe to a series loss. Minnesota took control of the game early and used it to coast to an easy victory. The Tribe’s poor defense again reared...

Minnesota Twins: Tommy Milone earns spot in rotation after solid spring

The battle for the fifth spot in Minnesota’s starting rotation is now over, as Tommy Milone was officially named a starter by manager Paul Molitor. Milone has had respectable Spring Training, posting a 4.50 ERA in 14 innings pitched up to this point. He will join Phil Hughes, Ricky Nolasco, Ervin Santana, and Kyle Gibson on the Twins’ starting staff. The announcement didn’t...

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...
