2014 Fantasy Baseball: First Tier AL Starting Pitchers

Last week, we took a look at three tiers of starting pitchers in the National League. The primary thrust of the week was to see how the three groups were separated in terms of secondary numbers. This week, we are doing the same thing in the American League. For those that did not look in last week, the general idea was to take the pitchers that hurled more than 100 innings in 2013...

Yoenis Céspedes makes up for error in 3-0 A's win

Yoenis Céspedes made an error on a knuckling liner in the seventh inning Sunday, the drive to left-center by the Mariners' Corey Hart banging off the top of his glove. The mistake didn't translate into a run, and the game remained scoreless - until Céspedes stepped to the plate the next inning and clobbered a two-run homer to left. The A's would pick up a 3-0 win over...

Daily Draftstreet Picks: April 8, 2014

I’m back baby! I’m coming off a nice 2-0 day and a cool $18 in my pocket. Not bad for a Monday. Okay, so I lucked out by facing an invalid lineup (you’d actually be surprised how often that happens) so there’s free money out there for the taking! In my legitimate matchup, both my opponent and I had John Lackey and Michael Wacha going, but my Scott Kazmir bested his Tony Cingrani...

Everyone contributes as A's ruin Twins' home opener

Scott Kazmir, signed as a free agent to replace Bartolo Colon, earned his second victory in two starts for Oakland. Kazmir wasn&...
