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

You may have noticed last week that there was no “Wrap-Up” for Week 22. Unfortunately, my computer came down with a terrible virus. It is so bad in fact that it is STILL in the shop for cleaning. Yeah, we are going on almost a week of virus cleaning. The lesson boys and girls is […]

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 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.

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 […]

The fantasy playoffs have begun in many leagues, and for managers fortunate enough to make it (more on that later), the time is now to lock in and make sure your roster is ready to take the title. Here’s Major League Baseball’s top headlines that may impact your roster. Cleveland’s Victor Martinez Makes Return Indians […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 20 (8-11 – 8-17)

The latest news and notes from around baseball: Greg Maddux Traded to Dodgers This just in: On Monday, August 18, future Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux was traded from the San Diego Padres to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Maddux played for the Dodgers for half a season in 2006 after being traded from the […]

Astros Win Slugfest 11-10

The Astros won their first game all-time against the Red Sox, but needed some late-inning heroics to do so. Fast forward to the eighth inning: the Astros had already climbed back from a 4-0 deficit thanks to a five-run third inning off Jon Lester. They were now about to complete a comeback from a 9-6 […]
