Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 21 (8-24 – 8-30)

We now enter Week 22, which is the final week of the regular season for Yahoo! fantasy baseball. I have secured a playoff spot in two leagues and am hanging on for dear life in another. The ironic thing is that in my fourth league, where I currently reside in 11th place, I thought I […]

Troy Tulowitzki a Top SS in 2010?

With the playoffs around the corner and the trade deadline passed it is about that time to take a look back at the 2009 season as a whole. It has been a season full of injuries to top players (Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Brandon Webb, Jake Peavy just to name a few). So I decided […]

He sat Friday night and watched his teammates play […]

Aardsma was 4-2 with a 5.55 ERA in a career-high 47 appearances out of the Red Sox bullpenĀ last season. Theo Epstein had hoped for much more from Aardsma, but every time he seemed to be […]
