Fister, Nats do enough right to get by Marlins

With Adam LaRoche back in the lineup and Ryan Zimmerman back in the dugout, the Nationals looked complete as a ballclub for this game.

LaRoche got things started with a 2-run homer in the top of the first...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 18

So, who’s the better start: Doug Fister @MIA or Felix Hernandez @LAA? That’s what the rankings are for! (They also say Fister by a hair.) R.A. Dickey @NYY scares me because of the ballpark and the long ball, but I think on average this is an appropriate ranking. Tsuyoshi Wada against the Dodgers could be an interesting start as LA struggles against LHP. Vidal Nuno at Colorado...

However, the best performance...

Doug Fister is Pitching to Contact

Doug Fister is fresh off seven scoreless innings Monday night against the Braves. Quality starts are pretty much old hat to the Nationals by now, who’re successfully running away with the NL East, but it might be a little bit surprising that Stephen Strasburg hasn’t functioned as the rotation ace. Really, that statement just speaks […]

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Aug 25

Last Friday I rolled with Doug Fister against the Giants, and Fister finally let us down. I also went with a couple Brewers against Jeff Locke, a hot Jon Jay and Jason Heyward, and a discount Khris Negron, none of whom came through for us either. The result was a 6335th finish in the $15,000 moonshot and a whiff of a day in double-ups. My three hidden players were Matt Carpenter...
