Cleveland Indians Trade Asdrubal Cabrera to Washington Nationals

The Cleveland Indians have agreed to trade Asdrubal Cabrera to the Washington Nationals.  Ian Desmond is the Nationals SS but with Ryan Zimmerman out and Anthony Rendon's flexibility to play 3B/2B, it looks like Cabrera will take over either 2B of 3B for Washington. Francisco Lindor could take over at SS for the Indians and is worth a stash.  Could also mean Jose Ramirez...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Jul 31

Yesterday was Day 1 of the three-day survivor tournament with the winner getting a ticket and travel package to the DraftKings Championship where someone will win $1 million. Day 1 had a maximum of 3,500 entries with 750 advancing to Day 2, but the tournament didn’t fill (as usual!) and just 2,515 people entered. Still, 750 had to advance and I was one of them with an entry different...

DraftKings – That One Hit Wonder, Koehler Me Badd

Signs you should've had someone else name your group: mispelling a common word is NOT a band name. Seriously, try it. Tom Petty Andd The Heartbreakers...yeah, did ya need the extra 'd'? Rhetorical. No you didn't. Hrm, maybe it's just a sign you're a bad group and should give up music entirely? Well, history has made it so. In many ways, streamers are...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Is Asdrubal Cabrera on the move?

There is nothing more frustrating than being stuck in the middle. The Cleveland Indians are stuck in the middle. They made it to the playoffs last year during the last week of the season and they are standing in nearly identical shoes this year. They are competing with the Royals for second place in the AL Central division. Right now, second place in the AL Central would be good...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Aug 1

Can you believe we’re already knocking on August’s door? Unfortunately we do so in unspectacular fashion as the July 31 deadline gets the aces (Clayton Kershaw and Johnny Cueto) and August 1 gets the wannabes (Hyun-Jin Ryu, Mike Minor, Mat Latos). Oh, I almost missed Chris Sale sitting in an atypical (for Sale) number two in the rankings! I think Sale should be ahead of Ryu...

Fantasy Roundup: Hammel Struggles Again

Hammel hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far for Oakland (Photo: Beck Diefenbach/Special to the Chronicle) Since being acquired from the Cubs, Jason Hammel has had two disaster starts and two average starts.

Merry St. Louis Masterson

The Cardinals traded for one of the most unreliable starters this year, Justin Masterson and his 5.51 ERA. Ouch. The Cardinals fell asleep and the Indians drew a shaft and balls on their forehead. People are snickering at you, Cardinals, because you have a shaft and balls on your head. Unless it's a non-Leaning Tower of Pisa that is partially obscuring a tractor trailer so...

The Lucas Duda Experiment

The New York Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this season, opening up the 1B position full time for Lucas Duda. Today, in a 11-2 beating of the Philadelphia Phillies, Dude hit his 19th home run of the season and picked up his 58th, 59th and 60th run batted in.  It was his 5th HR since the All-Star break, behind just Carlos Santana and tied with Anthony...

The St. Louis Cardinals acquired right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Double-A outfielder James Ramsey today, according to Peter Gammons.

Justin Masterson Traded To St. Louis For OF James Ramsey

The Cleveland Indians have dealt starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for outfielder James Ramsey. Masterson had hoped to be doing better before the deadline approached but he’s been downright awful posting 13 earned over his last three starts in which he combined to complete 9 innings of work. Not exactly the kind of guy most teams were chomping...

OPS Leagues: A Jose Ramirez Hunch

Which Jose Ramirez am I discussing, you ask? No, not the other eight professional Jose Ramirez's... but the Cleveland Indians stopgap between Asdrubal Cabrera and Francisco Lindor. FranLind has been extremely impressive-- he's already got 2 successful Double-A go-rounds under his belt at 19 and 20 totaling 400+ at-bats (.280+ AVG and 30 SB). While the historical HR/Isolated...
