DraftKings: The (W)right Way Or The Highway

I swear every time I write it seems like Steven Wright is on the mound and every time I’m here touting him.  Despite an 8-4 record and an AL best 2.01 ERA, Mr. Wright remains the Rodney Dangerfield of pitchers, getting no respect.  Just look at his DraftKings pricing over his past three starts, $12,200 two starts ago, $11,100 last time out and now tonight, he’s at $10,600....

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Joe Ross, Washington’s Little-Known Boss

Joe Ross has probably thrown under the radar his entire life. Younger brother to Tyson and now in a rotation with Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer, Ross has wrongfully received less praise than he deserves. I wrote a little about Ross last year late in the season as he was cruising to a rookie-year 3.64 ERA. You never know with young pitchers what will happen, but this year in...

Bullpen Report, Week 12 – We’ve Got Bush

Whatever your cultivation of choice may be, go with it.  Oscar Gamble was, and is still a pimp in social culture, as is California sensemilia.  So whatever your subset of life is, that's cool with me.  My obsession is a little of column A, a lot of column B, and I incorporate column C.  Column C being my love and passion for the deliverance of the most finite bullpen jargon on...

Fantasy Baseball Final: June 24, 2016

One of the struggles of writing for a national audience is avoiding obvious bias. However, sometimes the fan part of me wins out. The Houston Astros are the second hottest team in baseball right now. Unfortunately for them, the hottest team also plays in their division. They have now have won six games in a row and eight out of their last ten. The Rangers have also won eight of their...

Houston Astros Promote A.J. Reed

RUN to your fantasy baseball waiver wire - the Houston Astros have called up first baseman A.J. Reed. The 23-year old should be the everyday first baseman for the Astros with occasional rest against lefties.The 6'4, 275 pound first baseman hit .266 in Triple-A with 11 home runs in 59 games.  However, this past week, he hit .372 with five doubles and three home runs in 43 ABs.Reed...

I’d Buy Bauer As Far As He Can Throw Me

Trevor Bauer has a long history of not being great like he has long toss, which is to say he has it.  Was that clear?  Good.  I'd hate to start us behind the eight ball for understanding one another.  Unless it's a Magic Eight Ball, then we'd be finishing each other's sentences.  But since you didn't finish that sentence maybe our Magic Eight Ball says 'Outlook:  Cloudy.'...

Bear Or Bull: Is Correa A Star Or An Astro To Jett-i-son?

Carlos Correa is a star. A heavenly body. Out of this world. I know what you must be thinking. No, I don't have an unhealthy obsession with him. It just says so right on his uniform. According to the internet (so it must be true), the term astro is defined as a prefix that means "star," "celestial body," or "outer space." The city of Houston decided to make a noun out of this prefix...

DraftKings: Late Night Peavy Chalk Show

We have a full 15 game slate this evening, with the last game of the night featuring the Phillies taking on Peavy and the Giants at AT&T Park. I'm not a fan of late night talk shows, but I am fan of late night baseball. If you are out this evening, a cool party trick you can do is to open your DraftKings app and show your friends how many points Jake Peavy has. Over his last...

Mets Consider Reyes In Hopes He Can Successfully Switch Hit(ting Balls vs. Women)

Not sure how many of you saw it yesterday, but Terry Collins got heated in a press conference when the Mets' PR guy wanted him to tell the media more about Syndergaard.  Finally, Collins called him a puppy dog and stormed out.  Now, in a move that will be sure to make even the best PR person sweat, the Mets are in final talks to reunite with Jose Reyes.  The news picked up steam...

Frankencatcher Report: Say It Ain’t So, Tommy Jo

This Frankencatcher Report was a tough one to write. It began as a piece hailing the return of Evan Gattis and mentioning Blake Swihart as a potential roll-of-the-dice pickup. The Red Sox called Swihart up to get a look in left field when Brock Holt hit the disabled list with what appears to be a pretty serious concussion, as he has now been on the DL for about a month. But then...

2016 REL Dynasty League Update: Week 12

After seemingly 12 weeks of status quo, we finally have a new leader in one of our REL divisions! The Toronto Blue Jays hot off a streaking week 11 took the AL lead by 1.5 Pts following a 5-point surge last night. Right in time for the weekly update! The Blue Jays offense has been red hot, so this massive streak the past few weeks makes sense. Over on the NL side, the Nats...

DraftKings: I Love…Carpet…I Love…Desk…I Love Lamb

On small slates, sometimes you find yourself looking around the DK draft room and you have to talk yourself into someone. Sure, there's merit to my John Lamb call today and we're gonna get to them but before we do, let's look at who we're not rostering to get a feel for why we're here. Zack Greinke in Coors? Um, no. Up and down Matt Harvey who gave up four runs to this same Braves...

Moya Caliente

It feels like only yesterday J.D. Martinez injured himself, and it was yesterday if you were roofied.  In his place, Steven Moya is filling in admirably.  Yesterday, he went Yardo Montalban as he Tattooed the ball two times.  Da plane, da plane…is flying right next to Moya's homers!  My dear guests!  I am Mr. Albright, your host.  Welcome… to Fantasy Baseball!  Smiles...

One Man’s Trash: Where There’s a Willson, There’s a Way

With the exception of a few dependable options like Jonathan Lucroy, Wilson Ramos, and Buster Posey, the catcher position has (somewhat predictably) been one of the least offensively productive positions in fantasy baseball this season. Yasmani Grandal and Yan Gomes currently have sub-.200 batting averages. Yadier Molina and the recently injured Francisco Cervelli have combined to...

DraftKings: Ole! Jose! Jose! Jose!

A little rest never hurt anyone, right? The Marlins had this secret preseason plan to rest Jose Fernandez during the season and it happened to fall during his last scheduled start. Well, guess what? He's back! Fernandez is a machine. He's filthy, he's dominant, and he's mowing down the competition like Clayton Kershaw; only he's right-handed and gets paid a lot less. Fernandez leads...

Steven Wright Isn’t Giving Up Dickey

It's time we address the elephant in the room.  Not you, Sandoval.  I mean that one-time absurdist comedian and Red Sox knuckleballer, Steven Wright, has a 2.01 ERA in almost 100 IP after yesterday's line of 9 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks.  The Red Sox are so happy with him they are currently combing the minor league rosters for other Boston comic namelgangers, except for...
