Do the Blue Jays Have the Best Starting Rotation in Baseball?

One thing’s clear: the Toronto Blue Jays have made the biggest moves in baseball this offseason. Even after acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and other pieces from the Miami Marlins, and signing Melky Cabrera, the team made another big move, adding R.A. Dickey in a trade with the Mets. Looking at […]

Why the Red Sox Should Stay Away from Anibal Sanchez

The Red Sox have filled several needs during the Winter Meetings. But, the Sox still need to fill their biggest need: a starting pitcher. The pitching market is getting smaller and smaller with pitchers like Zack Greinke, Brandon McCarthy, Dan Haren, and a few others coming off the board. One of the popular options left […]

Red Sox Offseason Free Agent Spending: How About No?

The San Francisco Giants are the 2012 World Series Champions, the franchise’s second title in three years. I suppose some sort of “Congratulations!” is in order, but to be honest, I’m simply relieved that the past season of baseball is gone from my life forever. (I’m not kidding. It’ll be like it never happened. Deny, […]

Red Sox Interested in Angels Starting Pitcher Dan Haren?

There’s no way to put it nicely: The Red Sox pitching needs help. Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester both improved as the season went on and we saw a breakout year from Felix Doubront, but even with John Lackey penciled in as his 2010 self the rotation is still full of question marks. According to […]

Lester Out-Duels Haren; Red Sox Top Angels 4-3

The Red Sox will escape facing Jared Weaver in this series with the Angels, but co-ace Dan Haren lined up against Sox ace Jon Lester Friday night. Terry Francona could hardly have asked for a better pitcher from his staff to handle the responsibility of winning a game for the manager’s birthday, and Lester proved […]

Haren Injured in Angels Debut, Ortiz Homers Twice in Win

While the Angels pray (get it?) for the young Rangers pitchers to falter so they can gain some ground in the AL West, the team made a serious upgrade to their starting rotation, trading Joe Saunders and three minor league pitchers to the Diamondbacks for Dan Haren. It was a really good move for a […]

Ortiz, Nava Lead Sox to Sweep of D-Backs

Thursday night in Boston, the Red Sox moved up their start time to 6:10 to accommodate people who wanted to watch the Celtics and Lakers in Game 7. It was supposed to be a glorious night for Boston sports fans. The Sox did their part, defeating the hapless Diamondbacks 8-5 and sweeping away an Arizona […]

Sell Dan Haren While You Still Can!

Am I crazy? Some people may tell you differently, but I am so confident in this prediction that I am willing to put anything on the line. This is why I made a slap bet with my friend this week (those of you who watch “How I Met Your Mother” will know what I am […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 14 (7-6 – 7-12)

I’d like to talk about Joe Mauer for a moment. With 15 HR, Mauer is currently tied for the 24th most HR in the American League. He hit 11 of his 15 home runs in the month of May, which is the only reason his home run total looks decent. With 15 on the season, […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 9 (6-1 – 6-7)

Yay! Zack Greinke finally had his first bad start of the season in a 9-3 loss to the Blue Jays. I can now finally re-name the “Best Pitchers” section of the Wrap-Up. Greinke struggled last Friday against the Blue Jays by giving up five earned runs in five innings of work to raise his ERA […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 4 (4-27 – 5-3)

Apparently I am not the only one who believes that Kansas City’s Zack Greinke is in trouble. The good people over at Sports Illustrated have it in for the young ace as evident by the fact that they decided to put him on last week’s cover. Like many other stories of sports lore, the “Sports Illustrated […]

TGIF: Players I Targeted (2009 Edition)

We all do it. As part of our draft preparation, we make our own version of ”the list.” This is the sacred document that you live by on draft day. It is your list of players you HAVE to have. These are players you justify reaching for with your own insane logic and often receive ridicule […]

The World Baseball Classic is a Joke

We’re already on the second instance of the World Baseball Classic and Bud Selig’s wonderful idea has already become meaningless. I mean honestly, who would have thought that the World Baseball Classic would not produce the best baseball from the top talent? Who could believe that so many teams would keep their players that had […]

TGIF: 2009 Starting Pitcher Rankings

With Pitchers and Catchers due to report to camp in just under two weeks, this signals the beginning of the 2009 baseball season. The game of fantasy baseball takes the most preparation due to the massive pool of players in the sport. Over the next few weeks, I will be breaking down the best players […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 25 (9-15 – 9-21)

It’s the final week of Fantasy Baseball in all Yahoo! leagues, and for those lucky people in the Championship Round, it’s time to pick up the players who are going to surge as the regular season comes to a close. Make reckless moves! Stream your pitching! Drop those players you once never thought were droppable […]
