Buy Myers With Zest As He’s No Lemon

I remember distinctly the day Will Clark retired. I just got home from a Winter Solstice Pageant. I was only 12 years old at the time, but my mustache was already coming in. Earlier that night, when I was singing in the pageant, a mother yelled out from the audience, "Who's the midget with the mustache?" Then another parent yelled out, "Or is it a dwarf? I...

Fantasy Roundup: Salazar, Dickey Continue to Struggle

Salazar’s command hasn’t been there in the early going (Photo: Jason Miller/Getty Images) For the first three innings Danny Salazar was efficient, threw a lot of strikes, and missed a lot of bats. However, near the end of the fourth inning he lost command of his fastball. The command issues got even worse in the fifth inning as he started the inning by walking Alex Avila and...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week Three Musings

lidom.com (LIDOM) A few tweets from my colleague, Brett Talley, serve as the motivation for one of my talking points in this week’s musings. The excitement in the fantasy community over the promotion of outfielder George Springer to the Astros is justified. However, it also provides a golden opportunity to discuss the strategy of stashing prospects. Don’t Be That Guy or Gal,...

K-Zar Danny The Not-So-Great

This should go down easier than Danny Salazar's last start, but it's still not going to be that easy to digest. You have a Tums handy? Good, take like seven of them. Don't worry, if they give you kidney stones, it will take your mind off of K-Zar. Something is wrong. I hypothesized that he was tipping his pitches last time. It didn't make sense that he would...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Simmons Says No More Popups

Photo Credit: _j0nesy_ (braves0414-63) Early in the baseball season, you will often hear the phrase, “small sample size.” In truth, it is for good reason. There are times we get too ahead of ourselves and it leads to declarations that are simply irresponsible. But if you want to win a fantasy baseball league, you have to keep digging and working and searching, and if something...

Closer Report

So, everyone can give a complete exhale that two save-category standard bearers were not shut down with shoulder problems. Craig Kimbrel and Koji Uehara both threw bullpens yesterday, and are all systems go for the rest of the week.  Not like any of you have them, because we don't and shouldn't overpay for saves on draft day.  So if either of these guys fell to ya, good...

Why Stephen Strasburg’s Career Will Personify, “Waterworld”

"I've had a vision so great, as it came to me I wept."  Greetings! Tis I, Tehol Beddict, and last night I witnessed Stephen Strasburg grasping his ankles, shutting his eyelids, gritting his teeth, and receiving the kind of punishment I haven't seen or thought possible since Tupac verbally accosted the Notorious B.I.G. and his entire crew back in 95.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Homer Bailey is Fine

In three starts, Bailey has managed to get through 14.1 innings, while posting an 8.16 ERA.

The Tampa Bay Rays are in the Bronx to play a 4 game set with the New York Yankees, and they will not have to face one of Masahiro Tanaka or Michael Pineda.  But tonight it's David Price vs CC Sabathia and that means the Rays bats could come alive!  Sabathia has faced the Rays 14 times in the past 3 seasons, more than any other team.  Over those starts, he is just 3 and 8...

The Closer Report

This week’s Closer Report is going to take a different approach then weeks past. We’ve heard a lot of talk about different closer strategies and we’ve seen many pundits stand on their soapbox and yell about how great their strategy is/was and how you should have listened to them.
