Lineup Maximizer: How Gross is Robbie Grossman?

#75 Robbie Grossman (L) – Hou – OF – @NYY (McCarthy-R) – 1:05 PM – 1% owned The answer is… it doesn’t matter. You’re adding him to your fantasy lineup, not wining and dining the poor fella. As far as I’m concerned, the grosser the better.  I'd add two of him if I could on Thursday, when he squares off against Brandon McCarthy in Yankee Stahdium. Lefties...

Grossman comes up with big hit as Astros rally past Rangers

Although he was born in San Diego, Robbie Grossman was brought to Houston early enough to buy into the rivalry against Dallas. The Cy-Fair graduate has spent most of his life here, and he shares the Bayou City’s dislike for that other major Texas city up north. Grossman doesn’t hide his disdain for the Texas Rangers. On Friday night he delivered the biggest blow with a two...

The best defensive plays for the week ending August 5th

The great defense got jacked up to another level this week. Some of these plays…man, I’m speechless. July 30th and 31st, Angels vs Orioles – Manny Machado’s got a cannon. Manny Machado is great at defense. Even if Albert Pujols is much slower in his older age, these throws in back to back games by Machado were just gross.
