Jay Bruce: Don’t Panic!

Short and sweet today as I have a point to make, but not a lot of time to make it in. In it is in our nature to make hasty decisions, especially during the first week of fantasy baseball. One guy I was high on is really stumbling out of the gate. Reds’ outfielder Jay […]

Pedro Martinez on the Verge of a Comeback?

Eat crow. It’s an English idiom that means humiliation by admitting wrongness or having been proven wrong after taking a strong position. I recently had to eat crow with a certain player you might know- John Smoltz. You might remember the stance I took on John Smoltz’s Fantasy Value before he took the mound for the first time […]

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 3 (4-20 – 4-26)

Just a quick update on my three leagues. I am in the top 6 in two of them and am in dead last in one of them. Ironically, after each draft, I loved my team the most in my last place league and hated the offenses in the two leagues I am doing well in. […]

TGIF: Time for a Second Chance

As the baseball season winds down, several of us are on the lookout for a spark to our offense or our pitching staff. Odds are the trade deadlines in your leagues are coming to a close and the free agent pool is shallower than the shallow end of a swimming pool (wow, that one really sucked). […]

TGIF: First Half Awards

The stars are shining bright here at the Sports of Boston First Half Fantasy Baseball Awards. In fact the award show just may take home the award for longest award show name. Wow, I don’t know who to thank. The first half had it all. Ups, downs, lefts, rights, you name it baby. This award […]

Bruce, Dunn Lead Reds Past Sox

There’s a lot of fanfare around the fact that the Red Sox haven’t visited Cincinnati since 1975 when the upstart Red Sox met up with the Big Red Machine in the World Series. The Red Sox did win a game there, leading to the Game 6 dramatics when Carlton Fisk willed his HR fair. You […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 9 (5-26 – 6-1)

Two months are in the books, and we are just getting started. The big talk of last week was the call ups of highly-touted prospects Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers) and Jay Bruce (Reds). If you were lucky enough to snag Bruce, then you are a happy owner. As for Kershaw owners, odds are you are demanding […]

Fantasy Baseball: Rookies to Watch

First off, I need to warn against taking any rookies in a draft. Most don’t pan out to be anything. Some perenial All-Stars and other bench bunnies (seemingly multiplying as they jump from team to team). I’d like to think the guys I’m about to mention are can’t miss but be weary not to jump […]
