The Wind Up: The Right Way to Cheat

​ There’s plenty of narrative to go around in the world of baseball; this week was no different. As an organization, when do you say enough? The New York Yankees have their answer. If you’re looking for another reason as to why pitchers should still hit, I’ve got something for you. Not to mention: ejections and rough injuries. The Harper Narrative I’ve harped on...

What are the Dodgers to do without Hyun-Jin Ryu?

The Dodgers were and still are clear favorites to win the NL West division. But the path to that destination just got a lot more difficult. Hyun-Jin Ryu just had shoulder surgery that will side-line him for the remainder of the season. The Dodgers still have a dominating top of the rotation with Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke but without hope for Ryu’s return, the drop-off from...

Giants 4, Dodgers 0: Baseball is pain

When I wrote the game thread yesterday, I might have been a bit presumptuous in asking for a win in San Francisco. When Mike wrote today’s thread, I thought he was well within reason to ask for a run. Alas, that seemed too big a task for baseball’s best offense, or something. Here we are the end of this 3-game series in San Francisco, and the Dodgers didn’t score a run. Zero...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Redrafting Rounds 1-2

The National League Cy Young race will be one for the ages

Three out of the past four seasons, the National League Cy Young award has gone home to sit on the mantle of one player, Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kershaw has been out of this world good over the past four seasons, and really, you could make a case that the only reason he lost out on the 2012 Cy Young was due to the feel-good story that was R.A. Dickey. This season...

Clayton Kershaw and Being Hit Hard

Clayton Kershaw has a 4.24 ERA in mid-May. This is obviously not something we have seen in a long time, and worth looking at in more depth. However, it needs to be looked more than asking “What’s Wrong With Clayton Kershaw,” because it’s entirely possible that nothing’s wrong. Kershaw’s 31.1% strikeout rate is 0.8% worse than what he posted last year, and second only...

Rockies striking out at historic pace

The Rockies picked up a rare win on Tuesday, but they still struck out 10 times. The team has now had double digit strikeout figures in seven consecutive games -- including a franchise record 18 times against Clayton Kershaw and five Dodger relievers last Friday. Major leaguers strike out more nowadays than they used to, but the way Rockies hitters are whiffing is high even by today’s...

JABO: When Kershaw Isn’t Exactly Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw is in unfamiliar territory. The three-time Cy Young award winner and consensus best pitcher in baseball finds himself sporting a 4.24 ERA in mid-May, prompting questions about what might be wrong. As we’ll see, luck has largely been unkind to Kershaw, and he’s due for a big regression toward better numbers; however, he hasn’t […]

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, May 18

When last we spoke, I suggested a low-priced David Phelps at home against the Braves, plus a mix of batters boasting three Astros and a super-hot Bryce Harper. Phelps pitched in 22.10 points for just $4,900, which allowed me to select a sure-thing Clayton Kershaw. Preston Tucker came through for just $2,000, and Harper put up a team-high 26.00 points (among batters). Overall this...

Colorado Rockies return home after series split with Dodgers

  The Colorado Rockies return home from a six-game Southern California road trip in which they went 2-4. They lost 1-0 on Sunday, spoiling the second consecutive solid start from Kyle Kendrick. How bad has it gotten for the Rockies? A 2-4 road trip actually feels like it was pretty decent. Two wins on the short trip might sound like a lousy trip, but consider the fact that the team...
