Too Many Beasts in the East?

There is nothing worse than waiting weeks for the bracket to come out only to see that all of your potential final four sleepers are in the same bracket. For me, that bracket is the East Region, where the team most are expecting to come out of the bracket, is the FOUR seed in Michigan State.The one seed in the bracket, Virginia, would have been a pretty sexy two seed, but will likely...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Rankings

Starting pitching continues to get better and better each and every year.
