Lervin’ On Ervin

How great would it be for the Braves to trade for Marlon Byrd? Byrd and Ervin reunited. Byrd, of course, would have to bleach his skin like Sammy Sosa, put a giant yellow Brillo pad on his head for hair and wear some butt-hugging shorts that even white boys got to shout, "Baby got back!" Then Isiah can show up early, kiss them all on the cheek and watch from the sidelines...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jul 26-28

Cliff Lee makes his second start since returning from the DL facing the Diamondbacks on Saturday. It’s hard to feel safe given his velocity and struggles in his first start, and the rankings aren’t optimistic. Also on Saturday, Drew Hutchison rates highly in a start against the Yankees due in large part to a high W% against Shane Greene. For counting stats (W and K) this is...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Jul 25

When last we spoke on Wednesday, I suggested a Pirates stack and a high-upside Cubs starter facing the Padres in challenging hitting conditions. Well, the Pirates were mediocre and the Cubs starter imploded so our results were fairly average: 100.60 points and a 420th-of-1,140 finish. We didn’t place in the GPP but won a good chunk of our double-ups. Our three hidden players were...

Kendrys Sleeplys Without Seattle

Back in June, about six weeks ago, the Twins were liking their chances this year. They went out and spent money on Kendrys Morales, just to put them over the hump. Then about five weeks and six days ago, they realized their chances for the playoffs were slim to anorexic, and regretted their move. They had buyer's remorse quicker than Betty Draper's new husband.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Marcus Stroman, Disturbingly Underdiscussed

It’s kind of hard to remember that Marcus Stroman was called up this season. It was a huge deal when it happened, but there hasn’t been much noise around him since, maybe it’s because the Blue Jays have fallen off. Still, he joined a struggling rotation that was basically just being asked to not blow games, because Toronto’s offense was so good. Well, he’s been everything...

Closer Report, Week 17

Well, I guess enough was enough in Detroit.  It's always nice to waltz around with a security blanket like Linus, and have the ability to add a closer to back-up a closer that is making 10 mil a year.  Joakim Soria walks into the room dressed like Lloyd Christmas and is all tops and tails.  Great starting pitching and an actual winning team that he can back up.  For the Rangers...

DraftKings – Put Your Money on Tyson for the Knockout

I'm not trying to double dip here but I can't help a good Tyson Ross play. Speaking of double dipping, I would be remiss to not include this classic double dipping clip. Back on Tyson, I'm not going to appeal to the low hanging fruit and go all Hangover because that movie kinda sucked. Sky covered Mike Tyson's Punchout here and I don't want to be "that guy...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Jul 25

Felix Hernandez and David Price take the hill on Friday. Do your best to catch at least a piece of those games, even if it’s through some sort of game tracker. Those guys are something special. Jesse Hahn won’t be making many starts the rest of the way, but he will face the Braves on Friday. You’ve gotta like the K potential. Dallas Keuchel is struggling badly these days but...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 17 Free Agent Fixes

With a few closers rumored to be on the trading block, a trio of relievers get the nod this week as worthwhile adds in fantasy leagues. They are joined by a starting pitcher who looks to be rounding back into form since his activation from the disabled list, a third baseman changing leagues and greatly upgrading ballparks, and an outfielder thrust into an injury riddled lineup.

Nathan To Remain Closer? You Must Be Joakim

Like a good Jewish boy, Brad Ausmus said to his Bubbie, "Bubbie, I love sulfites, nitrates and pig a**holes, but every time I see a Nathan's, I get the runs. Bubbie, do you have a remedy?" His Bubbie lowered her knitting and said, "You need to get a goddamn decent closer!" And so it was done. Unfortunately, due to being wracked with guilt (or possibly...

The Historic Clash of Barry Bonds and Jim Leyland

1991 Baseball called for a lot of things – unmeasurable home runs, creative haircuts and some ridiculous outbursts. It was Spring Training in 1991 and the reigning NL MVP – Barry Bonds was coming off of a season that resembled one of current MLB Star – Mike Trout. Bonds tallied a .301 Batting Average, 33 […]
