Fantasy Rundown: Paredes Putting on a Show

With all due respect to Mark Teixeira’s recent homer binge, Anthony Rizzo’s sudden speed, and Kris Bryant’s arrival, I’m declaring Jimmy Paredes the MLB headline of the last week. Once a fairly well-regarded prospect who played a big part in Lance Berkman leaving Houston, Paredes’ progress had seemed to stall at the AAA level. In each season from 2011-2014, Paredes had...

Chris Davis’ Strikeouts Just Keep on Coming; Should Orioles Be Concerned?

The Major League Baseball single season record for most strikeouts by a hitter is 223, set by Mark Reynolds in 2009. If Chris Davis has anything to say about it, that record will be a distant memory come the final day of the season. The Orioles first baseman, only two years removed from hitting 53 home runs, is on pace for a whopping 272 strikeouts. So far this season, Davis has...

Baltimore Orioles: Starting Rotation Needs to Step up for Birds

Eighteen games into the 2015 season, Baltimore Orioles’ starting pitchers have registered four, count ’em, four quality starts. While there is some debate to the merit of the quality start statistic (to me, it is right up there with the hold in terms of useless baseball stats only used to give agents something to do when trying to pump up a player’s value), there is no denying...

Fantasy Roundup: Sanchez, Paredes, Carter

Last week I wrote about Aaron Sanchez’s struggles and since I’m a sucker for young pitching I watched his start last night against the Orioles. If you don’t look at the walk column you would say he pitched a pretty good game. However, it’s difficult to ignore the seven walks. In all of his starts fastball command has eluded him, but last night his command was the worst of...
