Yankees 2016 offseason wish list

2015 was a solid year for the New York Yankees. Even though their season ended in the Wild Card game, they still made it to the postseason and competed against the likely AL Cy Young winner. The 2015 season also showed the organization and its fan base where the weak spots are, and the front office needs to act on that this offseason. While the organization needs improvement across...

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: On the block

With trade season looming, the Baltimore Orioles will most likely be buyers instead of sellers. But with every action comes an opposite reaction. If the Os wish to snag a skilled player at the trade deadline, they must be willing to give something up and certain players on the current Baltimore roster are more likely to be involved in these trades than others. The first player that...

J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce Have Major Handshake Issues

It’s been a rough first 44 games for the Orioles’ J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce. Combined, both players combine for a WAR of just 0.2 (via FanGraphs) and seven home runs, which probably isn’t what Orioles were hoping for when Nelson Cruz packed up his boomstick and jetted over to Seattle. However, what’s even more concerning is that the duo’s struggles have apparently followed...

Doing the Little Things Helping the Orioles Win

The Baltimore Orioles have won two games in a row and inched their way back to one game below .500. The last two victories, however, have not come easy.

As far as health is concerned, the Orioles have had something of a middle-infield catastrophe, with injuries to J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, and Jonathan Schoop.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, May 13

Tuesday’s lineup was assigned a Risk Rating of 7, and the results back that up. C.J. Wilson did exactly as I expected, but the boom-or-bust lineup had a collection of boom and bust performances. Josh Harrison and Bryce Harper boomed. Steve Pearce and Jung-ho Kang busted. The rest were pretty average. Jake Arrieta was awesome. Overall this lineup got a min cash in the GPPs in which...
