High Risk, High Reward - Assessing Matt Harvey and Masahiro Tanaka

Here is a quick rundown of two young pitchers in New York with elite...

Wes Matthews Season Over - Torn Achilles

The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks last night, but lost Wes Matthews for the rest of the season, to a torn Achilles.  With Matthews out, Arron Afflalo jumps into the starting rotation and you should check to see if his lack of scoring since being traded has seen him end up on the waiver wire. Steve Blake and C.J. McCollum should pick up extra playing time...

Risk and Reward - WGC-Cadillac Championship

This week is really going to be defined by whether or not you believe the poor performances last week hold any weight. Both Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson are excellent fits for Doral, with their exceptional length off the tee, but DJ in particular put up an awful performance at PGA National. Logically speaking, as the late Mr. Spock is wont to do, one cannot ignore one performance...

Power Rankings - WGC-Cadillac Championship

Like a Lumber Liquidators floor plank, there were few safe picks once the winds and rains started at PGA National. Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, and more found themselves far afoul of the cut line as their long and high ball flights fell victim to the storm. Struggling, aging stars should take note, though, because Padraig Harrington's victory proves that it is possible...

Fantasy Baseball - Finding Production at the Bottom of the Order

In fantasy baseball, the 3,4,5 hitters of a teams lineup are the focus of fantasy drafts.  That is where the majority of home runs and runs batted in are generated.  Then focus shifts to the top of the order, and the speed guys who get on base, can steal second and rack up runs.  The bottom of the order is typically overlooked, but there are some decent players who fill out a...

Is it possible that someone like Rory McIlroy could be bad for fantasy golf, the very sport that benefits from the rise of such a superstar? In as volatile a sport as golf, having as near a constant as McIlroy or Tiger Woods in his prime levels the playing field quite a bit between the lay person and the expert because, and this is especially true in non-salary based games, just...
