On the Farm, Week 4: Thor’s Hammer

Noah Syndergaard has a great nickname, because really what guy wouldn’t want to be called Thor. Despite the amazing nickname the one time I was actually able to see Thor in person on 8/26/13, he looked decidedly more human than many of his other Asgardian outings. He got shelled to the tune of 3 IP, 9H, 9ER, and 2 BB. It ended up being the worst start of 2013 for Syndergaard and...

Fantasy Roundup: I Believe in Perez

In the preseason I provided two blind resumes of pitchers (below) and I asked who you prefered. Most people would choose Player A because it looks as though his ERA should be lower because of the lower WHIP, but Player B looks pretty comparable to Player A. Player B is Martin Perez and Player A is Jarrod Parker. Before being shut down for the year, Parker was considered a fantasy...

DraftKings – Sure As The Dust That Floats High On April 24th, When Movin’ Through Kazmir

The first time I got a Led Zeppelin album was when I was 11 years old and my brother hooked me up with Led Zeppelin II. What a life changing moment, I was so utterly in love and confused all at the same time. What great riffs and mind bending sounds that turned everything musically I knew, which was very little, upside down and changed the course of my musical tastes from then on...

Get to Know Him - Martin Perez

Diamondbacks Place Mark Trumbo On DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed OF slugger Mark Trumbo on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his foot. Trumbo, who was acquired in the offseason as part of a 3 team deal, has 7 home runs and 19 RBI for the 6-18 DBacks. He may only be hitting .210, but you did not draft a career .248 hitter for BA, you want the TrumBOMBS and he has provided. He will be missed in fantasy...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Should We Be Worried about Tony Cingrani?

Photo Credit: Lassenpkt At 12:35PM EST, Tony Cingrani will be taking the mound against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He comes into the game with a 3.22 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 23 strikeouts over 22.1 innings. These points aren’t all that interesting. What will be interesting is to see if Cingrani continues to repeat what he’s been doing this season. Despite his current shiny numbers, the...

The Daily Haze: Best MLB Stadium To Grab A (Few) Beer(s)

If spending less on beer is important to you at Major League Baseball games, head to Arizona or Cleveland this summer. I doubt Cleveland ever brings back the infamous Ten-Cent Beer Night, but you still can get more bang for your buck at Indians’ games in today’s MLB. The Diamondbacks, too. And let’s be honest, when it comes to stadium beers, you want more for your money....

Yankees Pitcher Michael Pineda Caught “Cheating”

In case you live under a rock, last night New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was ejected in the second inning against the Boston Red Sox for having pine tar on his neck. The reason I put the word cheating in quotes is because I think how you feel about Pineda really has more to do with what team you root for than what he actually did.Let’s face it, we have Boston Red Sox fans...

Closer Report – April 24th 2014

Let’s talk about major league bullpens. They suck. Closers suck. Trying to get saves sucks. Managers suck. Check out our show from last night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-OKpSJS5gM and you’ll see just how I feel about closers, bullpens and more importantly managers. Starting at about the 53:15 mark and I just kind of lose it shortly after the 55:00 mark. So saves are the...

Throwback Thursday - Yankees Nearly Traded Robinson Cano for Alex Rodriguez

Back in 2003, Alex Rodriguez was nearly traded to the Boston Red Sox for another right handed slugger, Manny Ramirez. At this time in baseball, A-Rod and Manny were the only two players making $20 million a year. Negotiations between the two teams went south, when the MLBPA got involved and declined a proposal by the Red Sox to cut roughly $30 million off of A-Rod's $252M contract...

The Trumbone’s Disconnected From The Foot Bone

Funny that Mark Trumbo has a stress fracture in his foot, because I now have a stress fracture in my stress-bearing frontal lobe.

Cool, I really like this episode of...

Will the Real Matt Cain Please Stand Up

Matt Cain's career 93-91 record does not impress anyone. Since he earned a full time job in the San Francisco Giants rotation, only 19 pitchers in all of baseball have won more games, however, just Bronson Arroyo and Paul Maholm have lost more games.  We all know wins and losses are a team effort, but it can skew the view of a players career pretty drastically.#486278051 /...

Bear or Bull: Bullet with Butlerfly Wings

Billy Butler burned his fanboys last year, after a strong campaign in 2012.  I know everyone around here lovingly (or maybe bitterly) calls him “Moobs”, but that probably hurts his feelings… I bet that’s why he started out so slow this year. I am tweaking the categories a bit this time, because this methodology is still a work in progress.  Here are some quick notes on...
