Happily Stuck (In the Middle)

Middle Infielders are valuable commodities, but there is no need to reach for a second baseman if fantasy owners want to wait to draft a solid keystone contributor in the middle rounds. After the big names, Cano, Altuve, and Rendon, disappear off the board, one can start to find value at second base. The second tier should include Dee Gordon, Dozier, Kinsler, and Kipnis, but the...

So there I am, cruising along the winding, beautiful Pacific Coast Highway, sun setting on my right over the dirty window sill of my tiny hybrid, when it hits me.

Fantasy Basketball All-Star Break

With the All-Star break upon us, I asked the owners in our fantasy basketball league to go back and look at their draft/transaction logs, and find their best and worst moves, I went first!

Risk and Reward - AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Who cares about Tiger Woods, Bill Murray is back for the AT&T Pro-Am! I may not ever walk in between the ropes at the Pro-Am, but at least Bill Murray can carry the same flippant attitude I would, so I've got that going for me. Which is nice. According to Golf Magazine, Murray says he carries between a 7 and 11 handicap. Given the source, I'd imagine that's a convenient pun....

Why You Can, and Should, Wait Before Drafting Starting PItching

In fantasy baseball, having names like Clayton Kershaw and Felix Hernandez on your team give you a sense of security.  And while they are the best pitchers in the MLB, it doesn't necessarily mean that they will lead you to a championship.  What it does mean, is that you will have to skip over bats like Miguel Cabrera, Paul Goldschmidt and Giancarlo Stanton, the guys who play...

There's something of a catharsis in coming home from work, nearly setting the house on fire trying to make hot dogs, and sitting down to blather on about fantasy golf.
