WATCH: Anthony Rendon’s barehanded play at second

Last night Anthony Rendon showed why he should be at Target Field for the All-Star game. Not only did Rendon hit a game tying home run, he made this spectacular play. During the seventh inning, Stephen Strasburg slowed down a hit from Orioles shortstop, J.J. Hardy, and Rendon made an almost impossible play.

WATCH: J.J. Hardy lead O’s to victory with 12th inning single

It’s no secret that Orioles’ shortstop J.J. Hardy hasn’t been having the greatest of seasons. Actually by most, if not all standards, Hardy’s season has been dismal. Yes the shortstop is hitting a solid .290 batting average, but his two home runs are tied for worst on the team by players who have played more than 50 games (only David Lough has hit 2 homeruns this season but...

In a season that has been beset with injuries and continual roster shuffling, the Orioles picked up one of their more complete – and needed – wins Saturday afternoon with a 6-1 victory at Yankee Stadium, hours after suffering a heartbreaking defeat.

Fantasy Baseball: A look at HR surgers and shrinkers

For many players in season long roto leagues, you are beginning to make trades to fill holes in your squad. One of the joys of rotisserie scoring is that you can target one (or more) categories that will have the most significant impact on your point total. I like to target counting categories (like HRs or SBs) when I’m trying to move up. For me, that category was HRs – in one...

What the J.J. Hardy?

In my league that I care the most about, because it’s the league I paid the most money to get into, I luckily drafted Troy Tulowitzki. While I’m reaping the rewards of his inhumane start to the season, I was quick to draft a solid handcuff because, as we all know, relying on Tulo in fantasy baseball is like relying Charlie Sheen on your new TV show…dangerous. As a result of...

Fantasy Roundup: What to Make of Hardy?

Who would have thought Ben Revere would have more home runs than J.J. Hardy this far into the season? Through 47 games Hardy has yet to hit a home run, which is a long stretch of time, but he’s had dry spells like this before. In 2005 he went 44 games without a home run; he also went 40 in 2010, 35 in 2007, and 34 and 30 in 2009. In the last three seasons Hardy has averaged 25...
