End of Season Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Rankings

Johnny Cueto was one of three National League pitchers to win 20 games.  The other two were Clayton Kershaw (21) and Adam Wainwright (20).  Corey Kluber, Max Scherzer, Madison Bumgarner and Jered Weaver were the only other pitchers to win 18 games.  Cueto had an unbelievable season, and had it not been for Kershaw winning 21 of his 27 starts, he would be the NL Cy Young...

Why Haven’t Mets Pitchers Hit In 2014?

Pitchers getting hits in baseball is like a trick play in the NFL. It works a very small percentage of the time but when it does, it can impact the game in a big way. You never expect the pitcher to get a hit but you appreciate it every once in a while. The Mets have been incredibly bad when it comes to their pitchers getting base hits this year. They rank 2nd worst to the Brewers...

Los Angeles Dodgers are the 2014 NL West Champions

The Los Angeles Dodgers play roughly six miles, or an hour drive in LA traffic, away from Hollywood. Wednesday night’s Dodger game gave fans the Hollywood ending to an incredible National League West race. On June 7, USA Today writer Bob Nightengale crowned the San Francisco Giants as champions of the NL West. Nightengale called the Dodgers a “dead team walking” and said that...

Giants @ Dodgers Sept. 23, 2014: Runs will be rare in matchup of aces

It sucks to invest as much time with a game like last night only to have it end in a loss. The stress and the blood pressure-raising pitches and managerial decisions are enough to take years off one’s life. Tonight’s game probably won’t be any different (and it isn’t even a playoff game!).

Dodgers 8, Cubs 4: Greinke Labors, Cubs Bullpen Labors More

The Dodgers won tonight, but the path was certainly rocky. Before tonight’s game, Mike posted a thread called “Finally a real pitcher.” After Carlos Frias turned in one of the worst starts in major league history, and not great starts by Roberto Hernandez and Dan Haren before that, the promise of a Zack Greinke start felt like an oasis in a desert of mediocrity. Unfortunately...

Zack Greinke’s Turned Into an Actual Hitter

There was a time last season that Zack Greinke was batting over .400. At that time, no other pitcher in baseball was batting over .300. So people had some fun with that, because it’s fun when a pitcher is helping himself. It pretty much never lasts. Greinke didn’t keep batting over .400. This year he’s […]

Dodgers-Cubs Preview

If Zack Greinke can improve upon two previous starts at Wrigley Field, the Los Angeles Dodgers have a chance to rebound from a rough series on their final trip of the season. Greinke can end his road struggles against the Chicago Cubs by winning a third straight start while helping the Dodgers avoid matching a season high with their third consecutive defeat Thursday night. Los Angeles...

Dodgers and Giants Meet to Address Crunch Time

The cliche from virtually all baseball sports media this week is a variation on the following: This is is the way it should be– the Giants and Dodgers going head-to-head in mid-September with the National League West Division title on the line. What could be better? But each season is its own story, and this 2014 NL West “showdown” is only happening because, a) the Dodgers...

Zack Greinke: Stupid people are better at baseball

Zack Greinke is one of the most talented starting pitchers in all of baseball, but he can be his own worst enemy. Greinke thinks too much at times, and it doesn’t help that he has a social anxiety disorder. The 30-year-old righthander says that he has been trying to learn to keep it simple. Greinke, […]
