Pittsburgh Pirates trade rumors: Mitch Moreland edition

The Pittsburgh Pirates have started the second half of the season on a poor note. Having lost their first two games to the Milwaukee Brewers, the Pirates now sit 4.5 back of the division leading St. Louis Cardinals.

Week 12: Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds

Studs Mitch Moreland, TEX: 11-for-28 (.393), 6 HR, 10 RBI This doesn't appear to be sustainable, but Moreland is having a career year thanks in large part to his play as of late. He fell off the fantasy radar after hitting just two homers in 167 at-bats last season, but he's up to a .305 average and 14 HR already. The power is mainly what we're after here, as the average (.259 career...

DraftKings: Shake off Yesterday and Repeat it Today

It's so frustrating to have just the right matchup, the research points you in the right direction and then, poof, you lose. It's even more infuriating to see that same group of players go off the next day when you are off of them. The emptiness of the DraftKings lineup when guys like Josh Donaldson do absolutely nothing haunts like all the haunted houses in fiction rolled into one...

He'll never forget that moment as long as he lives.
