2015 Fantasy Baseball: Go Trade for Matt Shoemaker

View image | A lot of what I read about Matt Shoemaker entering this year was about regression. He was 16-4 last year and an ERA just over 3.00, so it is understandable that projection systems and fans thought that was him performing over his head at age 27. Now 28-years-old and in his sophomore campaign, I am not thinking regression is what we need to worry about...

2015 Player Projection: Matt Shoemaker

Matt Shoemaker and his luxuriant beard emerged from obscurity to save the Angels 2014 season. Can his Cinderella story continue in 2015 or will he turn back into a pumpkin? What happened in 2014?Oh, nothing, just Matt Shoemaker coming out of nowhere to become arguably the second-best pitcher on the Angels staff.

Shoemaker’s wife Danielle sent out the “butthole” message shortly after her husband gave up...
