The first major trade of deadline week went down this morning when the Chicago Cubs dealt a group of prospects to the New York Yankees for Aroldis Chapman. The Cubs will be sending top shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, reliever Adam Warren, and outfield prospect Bill McKinney. Obviously, the deal will have a tremendous impact on the pennant race and on your fantasy teams. Let...

Arnold Schwarzenegger Stars In Junior 2: The Guerra Story … And The Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 17

When you have to tell people your favorite team's ace is a 31-year-old rookie, you kinda make a face like Arnold Schwarzenegger right there...  It's as uncomfortable as a dude getting pregnant!  But for a rebuilding team, I guess nothing is inconceivable after all! As an unabashed Brewers homer, and owner of the REL Brewers where I have to own a certain amount from my parent...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Week 16 Two-Start Pitchers

Christopher Morais A fantasy owner’s best friend is the waiver wire—where finding value can make the difference between a great week and a very disappointing one. Most pitchers see the mound once every seven days, but if you want to maximize the number of starts per week, it’s important to look for players pitching twice and exploit favorable matchups if they exist. With that...

SAGNOF Report: Even Miranda Is Adding Hamilton

Today is the first time that I can look at Billy Hamilton and say, "now is the time if he was available in a league I was in, I would add him."  Chances are some ****** canoe has been sitting on him all year, playing him sporadically and reaping the semi-benefits of him.  Watching him recently and correlating that into his last nine games, he has 9 stolen bases and looks to be...

DraftKings: This Young Cheeze Is Aging Like a Fine Wine

Aaron Sanchez, $10,300 vs San Diego, has been great over his last six games limiting offenses to less than 2 runs, 6 hits and 2 walks over 40 innings. The 24 year old former closer has been the Blue Jays Ace this year going 10-1 with a 2.87 ERA to go along with his 108 Ks. Even more intriguing is that he's doing all of this in the AL "Beast" going up against some of the toughest...

The Hall of Fame Index: Jeff Bagwell

Every once in a while I love to indulge myself. So, instead of focusing on a current player that might or might not be in the Hall of Fame, I’m going to focus on a local hero that has been on the outside looking in for several years now. Jeff Bagwell watched his teammate and friend Craig Biggio get inducted into the Hall of Fame. This is despite the fact that his credentials are...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Outfield Risers and Fallers

Riser: Christian Yelich – Yelich has the eighth-best wRC+ among outfielders over the last 30 days, and he’s been absolutely killing it in July: .377/.410/.610 with six doubles and four home runs. Yelich is currently in the middle of his third-best power hitting streak of his young career, and his .176 seasonal Isolated power is far-and-away the best of his career, too. He’s...

5-Day Sale — All Throwbacks Must Go!

The White Sox were due to wear throwback jerseys on Saturday, and Chris Sale didn't want to wear them.  The White Sox refused to relent, so Sale took it upon himself to do something.  Cut to, ahem, ten minutes later and Sale was sent home for throwing a temper tantrum and cutting up all the throwback uniforms.  The most surprising thing in this story:  the White Sox clubhouse...

Points Leagues: San Francisco Lindor

Open the door, get on the floor. Everybody walk the F. Lindor. Boom boom acka-lacka lacka boom. Boom boom acka-lacka boom boom. I can't remember when the shortstop position was this deep. And by deep I mean you have more options than Troy Tulowitzki, who was all but guaranteed to be injured yet still outscore the field, and Jose Reyes who relied heavily on his legs to get him...

Minor League Update: Fedddeing into the Hype

I got in a bit of a tiff in one of my dynasty leagues over a trade offer involving Erick Fedde. I'm one of the types that pretty much negs every first offer or counter I get below market value. IMO you're crazy not to. I also refuse to give up multiple MLB pieces for single prospects unless the talent level is a significant potential increase. The offer was Erick Fedde for Brandon...

Two-Start Pitchers, Week 17: Professor Hendricks

Just look at him. Smiling. Slender. Smart. Coming in at a 190LBs while standing a svelte 6'3" if you gave this man some wispy eyebrows, a cardigan and a pipe you'd have yourself a run-of-the-mill ivy league professor. In the greens of Dartmouth's baseball team, though, you get Kyle Hendricks, the unbecoming, unannounced, unheralded almost ace of the MLB-best Chicago Cubs. Could...

DraftKings: Trade Winds Fill Your Sale

Good Saturday to you all, I hope it has been a lucrative week and I can help you keep it rolling through the weekend. Typically, I like to write about either the best pitcher of the day or a the best pitching value of the day in my intro paragraph. Today, though, I feel like it's warranted to use it as a sort of PSA. The trade deadline is a mere eight days away and the rumors...

So Eflin Good

Zach Eflin tossed a complete game 3-hit shutout Friday night versus the Pirates, requiring just 100 pitches to go all the way and pick up the win. It was the rookie's first career shut out. That's what I'm Eflin talking about! I know what you're thinking, I loved him in those High School Musicals, I wish he was my Neighbors. Wrong Zach. Both are real good though. After a rocky...

Fantasy Baseball Finally: July 22, 2016

As we talked about yesterday, trade talks are heating up around baseball and it appears the Padres are at the center of it again. On Friday, a rumor emerged that they would deal Melvin Upton Jr. straight up for Ubaldo Jimenez. It came out later that the Orioles were also talking to them about Andrew Cashner in a somehow separate discussion. In particular, Upton’s renaissance as...

Bullpen Report, Week 16: Buju Blanton

Shaba Antone in the know knows that I am all about Jamaica.  Love to visit the place.  I also have several friends that reside on the isle and like to partake in the national festivity of... well, you know, don't make me say.  The Dodger pen has been a flux of capacitors all year, and I think at some point I'll bet a sixer on the leading hold leader from them being someone who...

Buy Jose, He’s Already A Daily Own

There's gonna be a lot of haters out there about Jose De Leon.  It's the times we live in.  His great-great-great-great grandfather was the original body-shamer.  Ponce De Leon set out about five hundred and fifty years ago looking for the Fountain of Youth because, his words, "my old bitty needs to go bye-bye if she continues to sag in the FUPA area."  He was also the originator...

Fantasy Baseball Final: July 21, 2016

As the all-star game is comfortably in the rearview mirror, the next major hurdle in the timeline comes with the non-waiver trade deadline. This year the deadline will occur on August 1st because the 31st is a Sunday. That means there is a little more than a week left until that deadline. For baseball junkies, this is probably the second most exciting time behind the Winter Meetings...

Bear or Bull: The Quintana Quandary

The surname Quintana is listed as having a Spanish origin and meaning "dweller on a piece of land whose rent is one-fifth its produce." In the case of Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Jose Quintana, this definition seems to be fairly accurate. After all, he starts one-fifth of his team's games and is compensated roughly one-fifth of what a pitcher his caliber would be on the free...

DraftKings: Fluttering Wright By

Steven Wright has been a revelation this year, and he's such a feel good story. Everyone has fooled around with a knuckleball in their backyard, and lemme tell ya, mine's pretty good! I may even look more athletic than Steven Wright... However, Knuckle Papi is the guy in The Show, and I'm the guy writing about him. Ah well, someone has to do both. Just pick him in your lineup today...
