Cleveland Sweeps and Thursday’s Box Scores

Many wondered if the 2013 A’s could recapture the mojo from their 2012 playoff run. The A’s came out of the box strong, but have cooled off since, suffering a four game sweep against the surprising 18-14 Indians. Mark Reynolds hit his AL leading 11th home run and added a double.

Top AAA Starting Pitchers

If the Baltimore Orioles can get Jair Jurrjens to pitch like he did for the Atlanta Braves from 2008-2011 they will have a serious shot at winning the American League East.  His numbers in the minors are a very positive sign!  Do the Los Angeles Angels have any other choice than to call up either Billy Buckner and/or Matt Shoemaker?  I know its the bats fault that they are not...

With the 1st Pick in the 2013 NBA Draft...

Each year there is usually 1 or 2 players that nearly guaranteed to be the #1 and #2 overall picks of the NBA draft.  Last year the prize jewel was Anthony Davis with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist the consolation pirze.  In the 2013 NBA draft, things could go any of 3 ways in my eyes.  As it stands, the Orlando Magic and Charlotte Bobcats have the most ping pong balls.  But both teams...

Roy Halladay - Shoulder Surgery - Could Be Season Ending

Roy Halladay confirmed today that he will undergo right shoulder surgery and for fantasy purposes his season is most likely over.  This is the final year of Doc's contract and if I had to guess, we might not see Roy Halladay pitch again for the Phillies.  Halladay has been terrible this season and in 4 of his 7 starts he allowed 5 or more earned runs.  He had a 3 game stretch...

Top AAA Starting Pitchers

What I wouldn't give to be a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. What a damn good organization. They already boost a pitching staff with the second best ERA in the Majors and developed Adam Wainwright, Shelby Miller, Jaime Garcia and now they shove John Gast & Michael Wacha in our face!  If I were an MLB GM looking to improve my pitching staff I would try and trade for pitchers...

I Drafted Clay Buchholz, Did You?

Clay Buchholz was drafted on average 220th in both ESPN and Yahoo leagues.  Ryan Dempster was usually drafted before Buchholz.  Clay was typically the 65th pitcher drafted in fantasy baseball leagues this Spring Training.  This is a prime example of why I always suggest waiting for starting pitching.  These guys get 30 starts a year and are so unpredictable you usually get burned...
