2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Week 4 Closer Report

Welcome back to The Fantasy Fix’s Closer Report for Week 4. We continue to see closers drop like flies and the unsettled nature of bullpens all around the league has fantasy owners wanting to dump the saves category completely. Let’s take a look at what has changed in the last week at the top of the bullpen pecking order. It will be a bit of an abbreviated look this week as I’m...

Rank relief: Bold statement – Houston is a worse team than Seattle

Kyle Seager poses while Josh Fields watches his handiwork In a game between two pretty bad teams, Josh Fields turned out to have the worst day.  Attempting to close the game and protect a one run lead for the Astros, he gave up three runs in walk off fashion.  Kyle Seager has been awful this season until his two home runs in this game.  I wouldn’t have minded having Seager and...

Seager's walk-off blast ends Mariners skid with 5-3 win over Astros

Well, how about this? Just when it appeared the Mariners were headed toward a ninth straight loss Wednesday afternoon, Kyle Seager unloaded a three-run homer that delivered a 5-3 walk-off victory over the Houston Astros. It was Seager’s second homer of the game, and it erased what loomed as another frustrating loss. He jumped a first-pitch offering from Josh Fields, who simply...

Astros avert series sweep with win over Blue Jays in finale

Jeff Luhnow didn’t color the offense with empty praise. “Underperforming, for sure,” the Astros general manager said Thursday afternoon. “I think we’ve got a couple guys in the lineup that haven’t got going yet. (Marc) Krauss, (Robbie) Grossman had great springs and we were counting for them to come out and get us going. They haven’t.” “(Jason) Castro has not...

Astros get best of Yankees, improve to 2-0

The Astros’ war cry this winter was a promise the bullpen would be better. If nothing else, they would fix the worst relief corps around. Wednesday night’s 3-1 win over the Yankees was the first full-length test. Four relievers — Jerome Williams, Kevin Chapman, Matt Albers and Josh Fields — backed up starter Jarred Cosart, who looked excellent early before his pitch count...

Fields looking to make his mark on the back of the Astros’ bullpen

The six save opportunities righthander Josh Fields pitched in last year were more than any Astros pitcher besides Jose Veras. No longer a kid at age 28, Fields is not a hard-thrower who only came into closing recently because of, say, an aborted attempt at starting. He was dominant as the stopper at the University of Georgia, where he set the SEC record for saves (41) and earned...

Phillies Sign Third Baseman Josh Fields

The Phillies have made a signing, and it's a third baseman.  However, he is not likely the solution.  Today the Phillies signed third baseman Josh Fields to a minor league contract.    Once a top prospect, Fields will likely go into Spring Training along the lines of the many minor league infielders the Phillies have signed over the years.  Hopefully they will get lucky...
