Yanks To Retire Memorial Day

This was just announced by the Yankees' front office. "No Yankee will ever wear the last Monday of May on their jersey. 5/25-5/31 will all be retired. We dedicate this to all the Yankees who served honorably on federal holidays." When asked why Memorial Day and not Veteran's Day, the Yankees' brass said their roster celebrates Veteran's Day every day. The Yankees exploded for...

Fantasy Baseball Nightly: May 25th, 2015

If you read only one thing….. It is Memorial Day. For most prognosticators, Memorial Day is the time when early trends start to look real. We can finally take stock of where things are going. If we look at the standings we’ll notice that just about every division has the right teams on top except for the American League West. The Astros have a five and a half game lead after...

Fantasy Roundup: Nap Attack

Mike Napoli was a sleeper candidate entering the season but has been a disappointment. There have been signs of promise, and the biggest of those came this weekend. While he’s still hitting just .201, Napoli came alive this weekend with 4 HR while going 5-for-9 with 5 R and 8 RBI. Now with 8 HR on the season, this is what we were expecting to see from him to start the season...

Matt’s Musings: Triple Crown Edition

American Pharoah won the Preakness Stakes a couple weekends ago, leaving him a win short (Belmont Stakes) of becoming the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. Although the races are short, yet exciting, the race for the Triple Crowns in the MLB are long and grueling. Miguel Cabrera was the last player to win the award, leading the American League in homers...

SAGNOF Special, Week 8: Heeere’s Carson!

Last week I recommended Shawn Tolleson, a player that seemed on the cusp of closerdom.  The closer's role is now his and even though they have a player in Keone Kela that is being groomed for the role (thanks for the tip, Smokey!), it is my belief that Tolleson will stay the closer until he loses the job by blowing saves, but that could be said of just about any closer.  This week...

We're back with a threeway!  On this week's Pod, Sky joins Grey and I as we chat Bryce Harper and his ejection, Clayton Kershaw's value moving forward, and the moment when Grey figured out he likes girly movies.  Hint - it came during a film review panel in the men's room.  Grey - why were you in the middle urinal?!  We also recap DL-ridden hitters with who to drop or hold...

DraftKings: Carlos Frias is The ICEMAN

What's cooler than being cool? FRIAS!!! What's 6'4 but weighs as much as a pile of sticks? FRIAS!!! What throws 95 MPH and induces groundballs at a 60% clip? FRIAS!!! Sorry for the over the top enthusiasm but I'm all jacked up on Mountain Dew and pixie sticks tonight, and I just spent the last hour and half watching the Bad News Bears on MLB Network.

Fantasy Baseball Final: May 23, 2015

View image | Article written by Max Hadelman, but he’s off the grid so I’m posting this on his behalf. Cole Hamels pitched on Saturday, and pitched very well.

Rusney or Not, Here Comes Castillo

Cuban phenom and top prospect Rusney Castillo debuted for the Red Sox last night going 1-for-4 with a run scored and a fielding error on a fly ball that resulted in a few boos from the Sawx Nation. "You ahre nevah gunna be like owah Tawmmy!" Be nice you guys, he's new. OK, so not the best debut, sure, but Castillo made good strong contact on a few fly balls and showed flashes...

DraftKings: If It’s Wong, I Want To Be Right

If I was drafting a season-long fantasy baseball team today, I would target Kolten Wong very early. I remember before the start of the 2014 season, a major media outlet had a debate as to who the best future middle infielder would be. I was hoping one of them was going to talk about Wong, and to my surprise, they did. I was surprised because there was so much focus on future star...
