Buh-Baez

The first four names in the Cubs' lineup will be Fowler, Castro, Rizzo and Soler, then it will be O, Brother Where Art Thou Upside with fantasy owners being men of constant sorrow. Maybe Kris Bryant does come up in the middle of April with a lei around his neck made from gold-leafed, big-booty'd Renaissance women. I have a strong suspicion that it's going to be more like a lei...

Matt’s Monday Musings: Mancrush Edition

Mancrush – a word that may make some people uncomfortable. It also sounds like it could be the name of a character in comics or Game of Thrones. Mancrushes can exist in sports, movies, or other avenues of life. I’m not ashamed to say that I have a mancrush on Jason Statham (watch the oil fight in The Transporter and tell me he isn’t cool). I also have mancrushes on a few players...

Chicago Cubs Option Kris Bryant and Javier Baez to AAA Iowa

Many fantasy baseball owners were counting on Kris Bryant and spent a quality draft pick on the Chicago Cubs future superstar. Unfortunately for them, his rise to stardom has been pushed back a bit, as the front office has optioned him and Javier Baez to AAA Iowa. Bryant was crushing Spring Training pitching View image | gettyimages.com    TEAMGABRHTB2B3BHRRBIBBSOAVGOBP...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: (My) Guys to Make Sure You Draft

View image | gettyimages.com I’m a proponent of ingesting as much information as possible when it comes to establishing my fantasy baseball rankings and valuations. Projections, ADP, consensus rankings, and opinions of people I trust all have their place in building my thoughts and opinions of players. When the dust settles, I end up with My Guys. A handful of players that I...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Center Field VORP Revisited

View image | gettyimages.com We come to the end of our VORP soon (RF will be the last edition) with a slight variation of our organizational structure. Many of you have had your fantasy drafts already, but for those that haven’t it isn’t enough to simply rank the players at a position and call it a day. Each draft is organic to itself and you have to be as prepared as you...

The K/BB Can’t Save The Sala Czar

Danny Salazar was sent to the minors because the Indians are trying to make life difficult for themselves. As someone who needs to pat their lip with a kerchief after a sip of anything, I know about making your life difficult, but my mustache makes me sexy, Salazar going to the minors does the exact opposite. Behind this move was almost definitely The House of McAllister trying...

Deep League Thoughts: Nick Franklin

Ah, the middle infield. Can you think of any other fantasy position where people praise mediocrity more than here? I owned Daniel Murphy in 2014 and it was great! Kudos to you, my friend...kudos. Pardon me if my pants don't get tight about someone who has a 10/15 season. That's just not for me because you're drafting to not get hurt rather than drafting to succeed. What happened...

Deep League Thoughts: Brett Lawrie

Hey y'all, let me know if you've heard this one before. Brett Lawrie is a fantasy sleeper for the YYYY Fantasy Baseball Season! In fact, this isn't even a new post. I just went back from all the posts between 2012 and 2014 and did a mash-up of them. It was hard to get them all the same font so be thankful this doesn't read like a ransom note! Speaking of notes, it feels like...

Points Leagues: Ring Around The Posey, A Pocketful Of ADP

I've got to be "bust"ing your chops by suggesting Buster Posey as a first round pick in points leagues, right? First I declare Clayton Kershaw the top overall pick over Mike Trout, and now this? Some of you are probably thinking that I've been smoking a bit of the devil's lettuce with Tim Lincecum while putting together these posts! Well I can assure you, that couldn't be...

2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide: Atlanta Braves Team Preview

View image | gettyimages.com Entering last year, the Braves roster was full of impact fantasy players. With two corner outfielders that had 20-20 potential, one of the best power hitting catchers in the game, a solid and reliable first baseman, the best closer in the game, and a shortstop coming off of a 17 home run season, the Braves had many attractive fantasy assets. Fast forward...

15-Team NFBC Sloooooow (6 O’s) Draft Recap

This draft was so slow that I lost half my starting rotation before the draft ended. This draft was so slow that when it started Minnie Minoso was still alive. This draft was so slow when it started Tupac was still dead. I didn't enjoy my time last year in the 15-team NFBC slow draft. I drafted Mark Trumbo, Prince Fielder, Cliff Lee, Anibal Sanchez and Patrick Corbin and my only...
