6 Breakout Pitchers You Can Trust In 2015

Each and every year it seems like the baseball community develops more and more advanced stats, with scouts covering more and more players at younger and younger ages. So how is it possible that every year players still come out of nowhere to put up monster fantasy seasons? It seems unfathomable that we still miss on these big shot players, but we do. Fair or unfair, the reality...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Starting Pitcher Rankings

Right now starting pitcher is the deepest position there is in dynasty leagues. I always stress drafting hitters, especially power hitters, before taking any pitcher just because of how many pitcherss come out of nowhere to provide huge value every season. In 2014 we had Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh, Matt Shoemaker, Garrett Richards, and, most of all, Corey Kluber all take huge...

Little Jose Altuve’s Big Season for Houston Astros

It’s been a season of controversy for the Houston Astros. They showed some real promise in June, with rookie right fielder George Springer making a big splash, and pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh posting ace-like numbers. However, shortly after Sports Illustrated declared them the “2017 World Series champs“, things began to unravel. Top prospect Carlos Correa was...

DraftKings – It’s Still Baseball Season?

Does anyone else feel like the baseball season ended two weeks ago? Then again I'm in Boston, baseball season ended around the 4th of July this year. So maybe I'm not the best judge of these things. I am a pretty awesome wet t-shirt contest judge, though, just in case you know anyone looking. It doesn't have to be a large contest either. I'm more than happy to work with single participant...

Tribe bats non-existent in fourth straight loss

The Indians—oh my beloved Cleveland Indians. They are teetering on the brink of bad and boring. Well, at least the offense is. We have seen one solid pitching performance go by the wayside too many times since the All-Star break. This time it was spot starter Zach McAllister who did all he could to keep his team in the game while the bats offered little run support in a 3-1 loss...

Two Out Hits Not Enough as Houston Shuts Down Tribe; Astros 3, Indians 1

Two out hits are the kind of thing a team needs to be successful, but not only two out hits. That was the case for the Indians on Monday evening in Houston, as they managed to register just seven hits in the game, all with two outs. Collin McHugh scattered five hits over six and two-third innings to best the Indians Zach McAllister and give the Astros a 3-1 victory. McHugh allowed...

End of season post-mortem: Houston Astros

Yes, the Astros are finishing under .500 again. For those keeping score at home, this was the sixth straight season where the Astros didn’t sniff 81 wins. However, the team also didn’t lose 100 games for the first time since 2010, and could even avoid 90 this year. They’re still a bad team, but they’re nowhere near as bad as they have been.

Heading into the off-season with a full 40 man roster, the flexibility needed to make any hoped-for-yet-unlikely personnel additions of a significant nature will require Mets team management to make some choices that may signal the end of several players’ association with the organization.

MLB Game Picks - Wednesday: September 10, 2014

Have you ever noticed that my picks are always more successful west of the Mississippi than they are east of it? For example, I started yesterday with the east coast and was 1-3 before my supper digested. I built that up to 5-5 and then did not get another game wrong the rest of the day. Weird. Maybe in the east, the teams are more on par and play closer games and in the west, there...

Boxscore Breakdown #138: Keeping pace – Astros 4, Angels 1

After sweeping the A’s, all the Angels had to do was keep pace with them and they’d be assured the AL West title. This isn’t exactly what they had in mind though. Or at least I hope not. Houston isn’t good, but they aren’t a pushover anymore. Still, getting mini-swept by them is a thing that shouldn’t have happened. Scoring a combined four runs in the two games definitely...

Collin McHugh: You Win Some, You Lose Some

Right-hander Collin McHugh didn’t exactly get his major league career off to a good start when he lost his first eight decisions in two brief stints with the Mets in 2012 and 2013. Despite posting a 2.91 minor league ERA in 2012, and a 2.87 ERA for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2013, the Mets had seen enough after just five major league starts and decided to trade him to Colorado that...
