10 Interesting Starting Pitching Stats From 2014

Statistics can be used to tell basically any story you want. You want me to build a case or argue against a player, give me some time and I’ll craft an evidence-based case in either direction. It’s both the beauty and the curse of using statistics, but sometimes it’s just plain old fun to do nothing but take a data set and do some good ol’ fashion mining. Last week, I compiled...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — NL Starting Pitchers

Jose FernandezSource: Denis Poroy/Getty Images North America The senior circuit certainly had their fair share of disappointments on the hill. In most cases, we are talking about pitchers that got hurt and underperformed because of that. Injuries happen, but when players build a track record of good health and performance then it is easy to be disappointed. The fact is that pitchers...

Red Sox Reorient With Panda And Han Lee

Earlier this offseason, it was reported that the Red Sox coaches didn't like Yoenis Cespedes. Wait until they get a load of Hanley Ramirez! If you were to put "Happiness That You Have Hanley" on the Y-axis and "Time Spent With Hanley" on the X-axis, you would find a line that starts at the top left and slopes right down to the bottom right. For what it's Wuertz, the enjoyment...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — AL Starting Pitchers

Justin VerlanderSource: Patrick Smith/Getty Images North America Pitching in fantasy baseball is an interesting dichotomy. On the one hand, pitching has never been more dominant at any time in fantasy baseball. Sure, they played some Stratomatic back in the 1960s, but fantasy baseball has only been popular in the internet age. In the internet age, hitting has always been king. That...

6 Breakout Pitchers You Can Trust In 2015

Each and every year it seems like the baseball community develops more and more advanced stats, with scouts covering more and more players at younger and younger ages. So how is it possible that every year players still come out of nowhere to put up monster fantasy seasons? It seems unfathomable that we still miss on these big shot players, but we do. Fair or unfair, the reality...

Dalton Pompey, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

Rock Master Scott from Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three, famous for the song, The Roof is on Fire, was vacationing with his family in Pompeii, Italy in the early 1980s, when he saw the ruins in the volcanic ash. He passed his Minolta camera to his grandma, so it wouldn't bang into anything, and laid on the ground, mimicking a victim from 79 AD. Then, he started screaming...

5 Players Who Are On My 2015 Draft Day Wish List

This post is a day late. Sorry about that, but my wife decided to throw a little birthday shindig for me on Sunday during my prime writing time.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Right Field

Photo Credit: By Steve Paluch Some leagues have five starting outfielders. That means 12-team leagues will employ 60 starting outfielders when they employ those five guys. Even leagues with the standard three starters will see a number of outfielders employed as utility players along the way. So, conservatively, we might be looking at a bare minimum of 15 starting right fielders...

Cards Win Heyward In Shel Game

The Braves had the 5th best ERA last year in the major leagues. That's with a down year by Mike Minor, and injuries to Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen. Their runs scored were second to last in the majors. Only the Padres' offense was worse. So, naturally, they trade away Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins, who had a sub-5 K/9 in High-A...
