Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 20 (8-17 – 8-23)

In last week’s wrap-up, I mentioned how I wanted Henry Rowengartner from the film “Rookie of the Year” as my fantasy closer. Now, if I had to choose the best fictitious hitter to have on my roster, it would probably have to be Pedro Cerrano from “Major League”. Oh, and I don’t mean the Buddhist […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 19 (8-10 – 8-16)

Do you know who would be an awesome pitcher to have on your fantasy roster? Henry Rowengartner! Yeah, the kid from “Rookie of the Year”. Watch the film one more time. You will see that after his first ever appearance, he never allows another baserunner for the rest of the regular season. The kid struck […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 18 (8-3 – 8-9)

Have you ever thought about your entrance music? If you were a UFC fighter, boxer, closer, or whatever else you can think of, what would you want played when you entered a game or a match? I would choose “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica. The ominous ringing of a bell combined with heavy […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 17 (7-27 – 8-2)

Would fantasy baseball be any fun if baseball was cleaned up? God knows how many players are currently hopped up on HGH or anything else that modern tests can’t detect. The most valuable player in fantasy would hit 25 HR at the most. What IF Albert Pujols is a cheater? He’d lose his fantasy baseball status […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 16 (7-20 – 7-26)

I wasn’t a fan of Mark Buehrle’s perfect game. Granted, he is an established pitcher who already has a no-hitter to his credit, but I don’t know, he just doesn’t seem dominating enough to deserve such an accomplishment. Plus, this makes people completely forget about the no-hitter by San Francisco’s Jonathan Sanchez on July 10th. […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 15 (7-13 – 7-19)

In the fantasy baseball world, the All-Star week can be a blessing or a total nightmare. With the week being cut in half, your team needs to prove that it can perform in a limited amount of time. I myself was fortunate in one league, but failed tremendously in three others. Over at Yahoo! Fantasy, […]

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 13 (6-29 – 7-5)

In one of my leagues, I am sitting in 11th place (out of 12) and decided to pull the trigger on a trade that was offered to me. I am trading Philadelphia 2B Chase Utley for Angels’ OF Torii Hunter and Boston 1B David Ortiz. I have officially broken one of my own rules in fantasy […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 12 (6-22 – 6-28)

I hate closers. I really, really do. I hate them in large format leagues (like the SoB 12×12 league) because they are basically worthless with 12 pitching categories and because if they have a bad outing it really screws you over. For example, this past week in my mideason league, I had Jose Valverde of […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 11 (6-15 – 6-21)

I’m going to take this time to be awesome. I usually wait until the end of the “Wrap-Up” to report on the Sports of Boston baseball league, but I recently took over first place. My favorite part about the situation is that I have Jose Reyes, Joey Votto, and Erik Bedard on the DL. I […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 10 (6-8 – 6-14)

This upcoming week is Week 11 in the fantasy baseball world and that would then mean that next week is Week 12. The special thing about that? That is when midseason leagues start! 2009 will be my first year in embarking on the midseason league journey. The league I am in is just a nice gathering […]

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 8 (5-25 – 5-31)

OK, so the Matt Wieters experiment isn’t looking good so far (.182 avg, 0 RBI), but hey, these things just need time baby. In one of my leagues, I was offered a trade. It was Angels’ 1B Kendry Morales for Colorado 3B Garrett Atkins. Maybe this guy got a hold of my piece on Atkins […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 7 (5-18 – 5-24)

It is my personal opinion that Boston’s David Ortiz used steroids. I also believe that he is no longer taking any performance enhancers as evident by his lack of power this season. So, I speak for all of the Ortiz owners out there when I ask David Ortiz to please, start juicing again! There was a […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 6 (5-11 – 5-17)

Just a quick thought for this week’s opening. Has anyone copyrighted “Fantasy Pro Wrestling”? Seriously, that would be a game that could take off instantly. You draft professional wrestlers and put them in your lineups and keep score based on their win/loss records. The only problem I see with it is the fact that there […]
