2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Catchers

Source: Victor Decolongon/Getty Images North America If sports are anything, they are great sources of drama. The major networks now pay billions of dollars to broadcast major professional and college sports. As they say, live sports are TIVO proof. The best Hollywood writers in the world can’t write this stuff. The Kansas City Royals don’t appear in the playoffs for 29 years...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Revisiting Rankings

Preseason rankings are always fun. And futile. Everything a ranker thinks he know, seems to go out the window soon after the first pitch of the season is thrown. Sure, any ranker will get some right. And they’ll undoubtedly get some wrong that seem stupid in retrospect. As humans we see what we wish to see. Oh, this guy has a platoon split? He’ll get it figured out. This dude...

2014 Catcher Recap: The Flop Five

The 2014 fantasy baseball season has ended. I’m not one for superlatives or useless “Who was this season’s fantasy MVP?!” stuff because — let’s be honest — that doesn’t help you moving forward. But end-of-season recaps are a necessity as they bring a sense of closure and tie up any remaining loose ends, so over the next week or two we’ll recap what we saw from each...

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he struggled for the first two months of the season before ultimately finding his way the last four months of the season. During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

6 Months Of Pitching And 4.5 Months Of Hitting Now Complete

Around six months ago, your mother left us in the middle of the night with nothing but each other and our drafted fantasy teams. I tried to make you French toast as you stood on a stool and watched, but we got egg shell in the batter and you cried about drafting Brad Miller. I was trying to do work one night, looking for a middle infield replacement as you played with your toy...

BTS Player of the Week – Colorado Rockies’ Wilin Rosario

By Anthony Weber Player of Week- Wilin Rosario (9/15-9/21) The Colorado Rockies as a team this 2014 MLB season are near the top of every batting statistical category.  Getting hits and scoring runs has not been the problem for this team that has the third worst record in baseball.  The trouble for the Rockies is that they have not been able to outscore their opponents, despite...

Yesterday I had some issues updating my entry after lineups were submitted, so my Official Lineup below contains two players who didn’t start — Justin Turner and Gregory Polanco. Oh well! For the players that did play, my pitchers were very good as Gio Gonzalez and Danny Salazar combined for 50 points, and both Wilin Rosario and Michael Cuddyer had big games as well. Overall...

Dugout Digest – do or die for the Brewers

This is really a last gasp for the Milwaukee Brewers. After a crushing 3-2, 13 inning loss to the Cardinals on Thursday, the Brewers are six games back of St. Louis in the NL Central, and 3.5 games behind the Pirates for the NL’s second Wild Card spot. You can pretty much count out the division at this point, but Milwaukee still has a shot at the Wild Card, especially given that...

The Colorado Rockies dropped to 53-80 on the season following a 4-1 loss to the Giants on Thursday. The Rockies are having a dreadful season, despite being fourth in the Major Leagues in runs scored.

Rosario’s wrist could land him on DL

Tuesday night in San Francisco, Rockies’ starter Jorge De La Rosa matched Giants’ ace Madison Bumgarner nearly pitch-for-pitch in a 0-0 pitcher’s duel. Until, that is, he experienced numbness in his thumb while batting in the fifth inning. It cost him his control, he served up a Buster Posey home-run in the sixth, and was quickly removed from the game. Because it’s 2014,...

Don’t worry about DJ LeMahieu

Heading into this season, it looked like second base, where DJ LeMahieu had locked down the starting job for the foreseeable future, was one of the Rockies weaker spots in the lineup (to me at least). It’s safe to say that the keystone is the least of the organization’s problems now. With a record of 46-73 following a 4-1 loss to San Diego Tuesday, the team has bigger fish to...

Brewers routed by Rockies in 'bad game' at home
