NBA Draft Trades

Last night's NBA Draft was just one giant surprise.  Before the Cleveland Cavaliers were even on the clock, the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics laid out the framework for a blockbuster deal, that will land Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in Brooklyn.  Then after the Cavs used all 5 minutes to make their selection, it was not Nerlens Noel or Alex Len's name that was called...

NBA Draft Recap

Anthony Bennett was the #1 overall pick, the first ever from Canada.  If he turns into Larry Johnson, then this pick was the right move, otherwise it just creates a log jam at the PF position with Tristan Thompson(also Canadian) and could even force him to play C which might not be the best for all parties involved.  Either way, with Anderson Varejao and Tyler Zeller at the C position...

Rays Hit Back to Back to Back Jacks

Last night featured just 8 Major League Baseball games.  Instead of our usual Box Score Rundown, we are going to focus on a player from each team that we think is worth buying at their low low cost today, and which player you should be looking to flip immediately, thanks to them playing way beyond their ability.  Esmil Rogers allowed back to back to back jacks to James Loney,...

Can Matt Joyce Be Trusted?

Streaming pitchers has been a fantasy tool for as long as I can remember. Some owners prefer streaming an entire pitching staff. Others prefer streaming a handful of pitchers throughout the season. Then, there are the lucky few who grabbed Patrick Corbin, Matt Harvey, and Shelby Miller as their last pitchers and will not be forced to stream any of their pitchers. This article is...

Chris Davis Chasing 73

In 1998 Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa took sports fans by storm, going back and forth, trying to break the MLB single season home run record.  At that time the record was 61 and it was held by Roger Maris since 1961.  On September 7, 1998, Big Mac, 34 years old, slugged home run number 61, off Mike Morgan of the Chicago Cubs, tying the record.  It was an amazing thing to witness...

Yesterday we looked at the top Fantasy Baseball players available in the majority of ESPN leagues and ended up with a list of 51 players with at least 200 points.  Today we are looking at CBS free agents and the list has shrunk to 48 players, which was expected, even with the extra days for players to reach our point goal.  To be honest, I thought the list would be even smaller...

Get To Know Him - Jeff Locke

The Pittsburgh Pirates have not had a winning season since 1992 but things are starting to look much brighter in Pittsburgh.  Last year the Pirates flirted with a winning record, but had a rough September and finished 79-83. So far in 2013, the Pirates are 42-29 and seem like legitimate contenders in the NL Central division. Aside from the talented young hitters like Andrew McCutchen...

Make a Move - Yahoo Fantasy Baseball

Yahoo Fantasy Sports always seems to be behind the ball with player owned percentages.  This is both a gift and a curse.  It leads you to believe that a lot of quality fantasy players are available, but typically the players in your league are smarter than the average Yahoo player.  There must be a ton of free fantasy leagues that go untouched after drafting.  Let's take...
