2014 Fantasy Baseball- Week 18 Free Agent Fixes

A pair of veteran players, one pitcher, and one hitter, see their stock go up with a change of scenery. A power hitter remains available in many leagues, and warrants a spike in ownership. Also, a middle infielder has been scalding hot since filling in for an injured star, and a one time blue chip prospect has turned around a dismal start to the season since a demotion to Triple...

No More Snickers With That Melky Way

Last night, Melky Cabrera hit two homers. Watch out, Melky's lactating home runs! Sorry, I cribbed that from Rotowire's notes. Kidding. Of course. Imagine you clicked on a player's name on another site and the first thing it said was Melky's lactating home runs. Only it would probably be more like this, "Melky has found his groove this year, especially...

Pitcher Profile: Matt Shoemaker AKA Matt Truemaker

I was a little unsure of who would be profiled this week (I thought about Jacob deGrom, but Front Row Amy was in attendance so I'd be too distracted...), so I went with a twitter suggestion that make me scratch my head a bit.  Matt Shoemaker?  Is he really interesting at all? I'm a big Angels fan, my most important dynasty now has Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Kole Calhoun...

Throw Me A Bonifacio

Emilio Bonifacio was activated from the disabled list last week. Entering Sunday's slate he'd recorded a hit in each of his games since his return and threw in a steal for good measure. Part of Bonifacio's charm is his position flexibility. He's eligible at both second base and outfield in ESPN leagues. He's a nice option for steals with 14 stolen bases in 282...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Is Matt Kemp on the Move?

Fantasy sports is a pretty cutthroat business. There is little room for nostalgia. Yesterday’s stars can often become today’s albatross and nowhere is that more true than with the Los Angeles Dodgers. They have an outfield littered with big names, but only one of them is really producing. If you remove Yasiel Puig from the discussion, you see three big names that are no longer...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Jul 29

Stephen Strasburg, Cole Hamels, and James Shields tower above the rest of Tuesday’s starters with their respective starts against the Marlins, Mets, and Twins. They’re not the day’s only reliable options as a deep day of pitching gives fantasy owners a lot of security (well, as much as you can have I guess). Jorge De La Rosa checks in at 4th with a start against the Cubs that...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Week 18 Waiver Wire: 3 to Catch, 3 to Cut, 3 to Keep

In the Week 18 edition of fantasy baseball 3×3, we’re rejoicing in the return of Collin McHugh, setting realistic expectations for Chris Tillman, and giving Christian Yelich his due. There are plenty of waiver wire columns out there that provide an exhaustive list of the most added players in fantasy leagues. This isn’t one of them. Here, we’ll run down a few of the most interesting...

There are several two-start pitchers who qualify for the streaming portion of this article.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jul 28

Put bluntly, Friday wasn’t a great start to the weekend. My faith in Dallas Keuchel (and our Daily SP Rankings‘ faith) was justified as he pitched great against the Marlins, but Alex Wood flamed out versus the Padres and the Astros were stifled by Brad Hand (seriously?). It happens. We live, learn, and move on. On a bright side, I’m definitely beginning to feel more comfortable...

Fantasy Rundown: Assessing Lee’s Value

In a post from early last week, before Cliff Lee had made his first of two long awaited, yet ultimately disappointing, starts, I said he’d be just fine the rest of the way. In fact, I pegged him as a top 15 pitcher with top 10 upside. Well, 10.2 innings, 21 hits, 9 ER, 2 HR, 3 BB, and 7 K later, I’m not quite as optimistic. Those high hit totals have been commonplace against...

Peavy On The Presidio

You know how when you move out of a place, you throw out a majority of your stuff, but a few things you just slide into the cubbyhole behind the washer/dryer? Maybe nothing significant. Just something to leave your mark, like an old pair of underwear. Then in a few years, maybe ten, you go back to your old place, knock on the door and ask to see what they've done with the...

Appreciating the Fantasy Baseball Gift that is Mike Trout

Pedro Martinez and Manny Ramirez in 1999. Barry Bonds in 2001. Randy Johnson in 2002. These are the fantasy baseball seasons straight out of Heaven. The ones you remember forever. Seasons that can cause you to fall in love with Rotisserie baseball in a couple months. I’ve been on the right side of a few […]

Creeper of the Week: Get Out of Your Rutledge With Some Josh-ing

Hello Razzballers! Happy Sunday before the non-waiver trade deadline. *Pops party popper* Today I bring you a Creeper that feels more like a buy, but because Josh Rutledge is only 7.4% owned, he qualifies for my purposes. This is the time of the year that we need to make moves fast, cut the dead weight and change how we value our players ROS. When an opportunity arises we need to...

They all are hitting under .150.#451166584 / gettyimages.comAt this point, the Houston Astros get nervous when Matt Dominguez come up to bat with runners on base, because the third baseman has hit into 7 double plays in July.The Orioles Chris Davis might have 4...

Unfortunately he has missed the last 4 games with a hand injury after being hit by a pitch.Jayson Werth has been destroying opposing pitching in July.

DraftKings: Wainwright On Time

Adam Wainwright ($10,500) pitches in Chicago today against a Cubs offense that has the third-worst strikeout percentage in baseball. The Cubs also own a wRC+ of 86, which is good for 28th in MLB. For a price under $11K, Wainwright makes the best play given how few legit aces will be taking the mound. Weather could be an issue for a lot of games today, including this one. While a...
