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...

Astros Win For First Time Ever At Fenway, 5-3

(Photo by Darren McCollester/Getty Images)This was another one that the Red Sox should have won—and probably would have if this were 2013. But, Boston blew 2-0 and 3-2 leads on the way to a 5-3 loss to Houston. Clay Buchholz pitched well enough to lose—giving up a game-tying HR to Robbie Grossman that effectively ended his shot at a win. Yoenis Cespdepes smoked a line shot HR...

Rangers blow lead in eighth as Astros take win

HOUSTON - Any good feelings the Texas Rangers had after leaving Chicago with a two-game winning streak left when the Astros snatched the lead in the eight inning and didn't look back as they took the 4-3 win at Minute Maid Park on Friday night.

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.

WATCH: Houston Astros big man Jon Singleton lumbers around bases for inside-the-park homerun

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton has a lot of power.  He’s expected to put them into the seats with regularity as he gets comfortable with major league pitching.  The trade piece as a part of the Hunter Pence deal showed off his power (and not so much speed) as he circled the basepaths for a two-run inside-the-park home run (after review, via MLB.com) Your browser does not support...

Rangers doomed from start once again

ARLINGTON, Texas - Texas manager Ron Washington's answer to a postgame question could have also been a plea to his starting rotation. "We just need our starters to get a little deeper," Washington said following Tuesdays' 8-3 loss to Houston. The four innings pitched by rookie right-hander Phil Irwin in his Texas debut wasn't what Washington had in mind. Not when it followed the...
