Buchholz and Kalish Lead Red Sox to 6-3 Victory in Bronx

Javier Vazquez probably hoped his Yankee reunion tour would go better that it has. While the right-hander has settled down since April, the Red Sox brought back memories of the 2004 ALCS where the talented pitcher couldn’t get the job done. His opponent, Clay Buchholz, on the other hand, was in the zone most of […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 23 (9-7 – 9-13)

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 2 (4-13 – 4-19)

Apparently the new Yankee Stadium has become a home run haven. It has always been a well-known fact that Colorado’s Coors Field was the ideal place for owners needing a power fix. If recent trends continue, then I guess we will all have to start putting players in our lineups solely based on the fact that they are […]
