Tampa Bay Rays: Archer aiming for greatness

Chris Archer’s ERA of .84 is the third best in the majors. Chris Archer has led by example for the Tampa Bay Rays (12-10). As the club’s ace, Archer has gone 3-2 with an ERA of .84. Those numbers are very impressive, but do not tell the whole story. On the 26th of April, Archer was feeling under the weather. This did not stop him from throwing seven strikeouts in seven scoreless...

Cubs Pen in Dire Straights, Eyes on Balfour

Major League Baseball is an ever-changing landscape. As such the teams as well change and adapt to different situations that come from a grueling 162-game season that doesn’t include Spring Training in April and the playoffs in September and October. Slumps and hot streaks alike occur over and over again causing players to come up to the Majors, get sent down to the Minors, or...

Pitching update: April 29th, 2015

  Rays at Orioles 8/27/14   Photo by: Keith Allison In my opinion, it’s been a very strange year in fantasy baseball when it comes to pitchers. For example, there are guys like Felix Hernandez and Matt Harvey that seem to be picking up right where they left off with their best stuff. Then you have Clayton Kershaw that just hasn’t been himself so far in four starts, and then...

The Evolution of Chris Archer

Chris Archer has developed himself into an MLB ace early on in 2015. It’s hard to believe that not one but two teams passed on keeping Chris Archer in their system. Archer was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 5th round of the 2006 draft. In 2008, Archer was moved from the Indians organization to the Chicago Cubs along with  John Gaub and Jeff Stevens for Mark DeRosa...
