2013 Fantasy Baseball, The Daily Fix: September 19th, 2013

Today, I’m playing in a Double Up! contest again. They range anywhere from a dollar to over 100 dollars, but each works the same way. If you finish in the top half you get almost twice as much as you put in. Naturally, DraftKings gets their cut because they have to pay their employees, the light bill, and make a little for their trouble. That being said, they are very generous...

Most July veteran “dumps” net little to nothing in return

After every Mets loss, as I am sure it now applies to Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Chicago and of course in Miami and Houston, the talk always heats up about what veteran players could be traded before the July 31st trading deadline. The ones leading the conversation, usually a beat writer or outspoken fans on twitter, make this out to be the greatest thing in the world...

Baseball excitement back in Toronto

The tired old line from The Field of Dreams of, "Build it and they will come." does not really apply to the Toronto Blue Jays and their fan base. Instead, it has been more of, "Show them you care and are trying to win and they will come." After a wild off-season, the front office of the Blue Jays has apparently done just that in Toronto and the fans there are...

MLB Notes: Ricky Nolasco Focusing on 2013 With Miami Marlins

As we watched the Miami Marlins clean house by trading players like Heath Bell, Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonifacio, Jose Reyes, among others, we saw the few remaining Marlins say they also wanted the same treatment. Giancarlo Stanton wasn’t happy about what happened, and Ricky Nolasco was pretty vocal about wanting to get traded. Now that he’s still with the team with Spring Training...

Ramblings About Success And Some Reminiscing

Every team has to have a number of components in order to brew a culture of winning and unity that is found in most legitimate contenders. The token ace, power bat, golden glove, and bullpen leader are a given, but just because you follow the directions of a paint by numbers doesn’t mean it will be a masterpiece. Realistically there are more cogs in the machine than we could...

Is a Divorce Between Wright and the Mets Inevitable?

“I think that his future is independent of club performance,” Alderson said of Wright at the Mets’ spring-training complex yesterday. “There are certain decisions that one takes that are a function of where a team is at a particular time and so forth, but if there’s anybody on the team whose performance and future is independent of the club’s performance, I think it’s...

Tiers, Not Fears: Shortstop

You’ll be sweating Dee’s NutsPhoto Credit: bridgetds There’s no getting around it: the shortstop position is shallow as hell. Fantasy owners are forced to either overpay based on position scarcity, or take their chances with a cheap scrub. Most people in your fantasy league will not be happy with their SS, and they might even have one of the best options (see: Hanley Ramirez’s...

Herpes will not Stop Braun from MVP Dinner/Speech

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun hopefully will not be using any type of medication tonight before he performs in front of MLB officials and people to accept his National League MVP trophy. Pending a 50-game suspension that the MLB may possibly give him for his failed PED test last season, Braun will be honored, at least tonight, by the Baseball Writers of America for his...

Rumor: Ryan Braun juiced with Herpes Medication, not PEDs?

Mets Card of the Week: 2003 Jose Reyes

2003 FLEER MYSTIQUE JOSE REYES Fleer took its initial steps into the baseball card market in the late ’50s/early ’60s, producing a set dedicated to the career of Ted Williams, and a couple of “all-time greats” issues that focused on retired players. Come 1963, they were suitably emboldened to attempt a run at the Topps monopoly on current-player cards. That year, Fleer introduced...

Hanley Ramirez Not Likely To Excel At Third Base

Over six seasons with the (now) Miami Marlins, Hanley Ramirez proved to be a mediocre defensive shortstop. If history is any guide, he will likely be a worse defender at third base. With the Marlins signing Jose Reyes to a six-year contract worth $106 million, Ramirez will no longer be the Marlins shortstop. Every indication is that he will be moved to third base, although Ramirez...

Jose Reyes And Other Big Money Shortstops

The Marlins made the first big move of the winter meetings Sunday night, agreeing to sign Jose Reyes to a six-year contract worth $106 million. It’s obviously the largest contract in franchise history, more than doubling the four-year, $52 million pact signed by Carlos Delgado prior to the 2005 season. It’s also the second largest contract ever given to a free agent shortstop...
