Two-Startapalooza, Week 22: Dog Days

This is happening on the other side of my laptop as I sit here writing the Two-Startapalooza... Yes, that is a dog dry-humping Boo the star Pomeranian in stuffed animal form. He does it all the time, but for some reason it seemed profound to me and strangely relevant to this week’s batch of pitchers. [Jay's Note: Uhhhh. Okay?] Perhaps my dog represents the fantasy gods,...

DraftKings – Jimi Hendricks Into Your Lineup

What a night! I spent last evening at Razzball's Boston stop of the #32in32in32 tour kicking it with the one and only Nick Capozzi, Smokey (my new best friend) and a whole bunch of Razzaholics at the Greatest Bar in Boston (obnoxious Boston bar name alert). Though the focus was football, there was a whole lot of Daily Fantasy baseball talk with so many daily junkies in the building...

Myers Can Wil You to Fantasy Glory

Last night, I finally took a break after nearly 30 non-stop hours of watching the Every Simpsons Ever marathon to watch Wil Myers at bat. Much like Grandpa Simpson, I imagine someday I'll tell my grand kids about watching the at-bats of a young Wil Myers, before he went on to achieve fantasy superstardom. Also like Grandpa Simpson, I imagine my story won't really go anywhere...

I’m On An Avisail Boat, Buy-atch!

If Miggy were a Russian nesting doll, the first doll under him would be Avisail Garcia. They look like so similar they could do Sister, Sister-type stunts. "I don't want to face Felix Hernandez today, you take my jersey and you face him...Then take my algebra exam." "Okay, sis, but you have to go out with Bobby for me. Pinky swear!" That's them conspiring...

DraftKings – Hot Carrasco Sauce Goes With Everything

I see you. Yes you. The one in the back who watches Hentai. I'm going to kindly ask you to leave. I know where you're taking this title and I'm not having it. Go enjoy your bukkake fetish somewhere else, m'kay? Thanks. Now that we got rid of THAT crowd...hey wait, where did everybody go? Seriously, THAT was a majority of my readership? I guess I'm big...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Aug 22

In an annoyingly short slate of late games to choose from, somehow my super-stack of Braves set itself somewhat apart. Freddie Freeman, Phil Gosselin, Chris Johnson, and Justin Upton scored 9+ points apiece, and Evan Gattis and B.J. Upton chipped in another 10. Matt Shoemaker was the story, though, pitching a one-hitter against Boston the day after the lost Garrett Richards for 6...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Aug 23-25

Steamer still doesn’t like Jon Lester, projecting him for a 3.48 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and just 6 IP per start the rest of the way. Matched up against the division leading Angels, Lester has fallen to about league average in our rankings. I’d put him 6th or 7th among Saturday’s starters. Also on Saturday, Jacob deGrom is back! Unfortunately he faces the Dodgers and will be opposed...

Fantasy Roundup: Brandon Moss’ Decline

After the Jon Lester-Yoenis Cespedes I said I liked the deal for the A’s because Jason Hammel forgot how to get outs and the A’s offense would be able to replace Cespedes’ offensive output in the aggregate. Since the trade the A’s offense has not been very good; they are 22nd in wOBA and 24th in OPS, which is steep decline considering how good the offense was prior. The A’s...

A Benoit Out Of Hand Isn’t Worth A Quackenbush

Amish text states vociferously that a Quackenbush should not render thou's biblical nature moot. Stating, "Eroticism is the devil's electricity, and our brains should not be hardwired to flip any switches when our nature's bell rings. You may want to churn butter into the Quackenbush--" I just realize I had a smudge on my Amish Schoolchildren Early Education...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Aug 21

Yesterday was my worst day in a little while as my lineup scored just 76.30 points and barely squeezed into the top half of the $2 Moonshot. Things that went right: Lance Lynn, Stephen Drew, Nolan Arenado, and Rymer Liriano. Things that went wrong: Garrett Richards and my other Yankees. Lasting just 1.2 IP in his start at Fenway, Richards exited early with a serious looking knee...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 21 Roundup

Photo credit: Arturo Pardavila III With the Major League Baseball season entering the stretch run and the National Football League set to begin in a matter of weeks, you may be noticing some owners jumping ship on their teams with little hope for winning to begin their preparation for the upcoming fantasy football season. Now, I’m not advising you do that by any means, but if you...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Aug 22

Friday has an extremely unappealing slate of starters, which seems to be the norm this time of year as teams fall out of contention, players get injured, and prospects get the call. But these are the guys we have to choose from, so let’s get ranking. Felix Hernandez and Adam Wainwright are a worthy top two, but after that we get Dan Haren (vs. NYM), Josh Collmenter (vs. SD),...

Fantasy Roundup: Scouting James Paxton

Photo: USATSI Since coming off the DL James Paxton has put up really good numbers (in three starts): 2.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 16.7% strikeout rate, and a low 6.1% walk rate. For his Major League career (nine starts) he has a 1.88 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 22.2% strikeout rate and 6.4% walk rate. Those career numbers suggest he should be owned in every format. However, I have major concerns about...

Garrett Richards - Knee Injury

Richards was carted off the field, and has been diagnosed as a "significant" patella injury, but no timetable has been released. #453879230 / gettyimages.comRichards finished the first half of the season with an 11-2 record, a 2.55 ERA and...

Benoit Hurting, Kevin Quackenbush Should Be Owned

San Diego Padres closer, Joaquin Benoit, has been dealing with some shoulder issues recently and hasn’t taken the field in over a week. He could be headed to the DL soon to give him time to heal properly. Subbing for Benoit last night was Kevin Quackenbush. He earned his first save of the season and could be the closer for the foreseeable future. He sports a 2.35 ERA and a nice...

Who Misses Garrett? The Facts Of Life Mock You!

"Richards is talking to trainers but remains on back. Injury appears to be serious." That's how the news was tweeted out yesterday by the Angels beat writer. If Agatha Christie were around today, she'd adapt that tweet and name the novel, 140 Characters On A Train Wreck. Then it would be re-released after a train disaster with its new title, The Pitcher'...

Lineup Maximizer: How Gross is Robbie Grossman?

#75 Robbie Grossman (L) – Hou – OF – @NYY (McCarthy-R) – 1:05 PM – 1% owned The answer is… it doesn’t matter. You’re adding him to your fantasy lineup, not wining and dining the poor fella. As far as I’m concerned, the grosser the better.  I'd add two of him if I could on Thursday, when he squares off against Brandon McCarthy in Yankee Stahdium. Lefties...
