2015 Fantasy Baseball: Five Starting Pitchers to Avoid

View image | gettyimages.com While sabermetrics are not yet standard pieces of fantasy baseball play, they can be an incredibly useful tool when making the decisions for who to draft and who to stay away from.

Early Thoughts on 2015 Royals

So a sinus attack has me awake in the middle of the night. I get to watch the game from September 30, 2014 – again – in its entirety – for the first time since I watched it on live TV.
