National League Dominates in 2012 All-Star Game

When the lineups for the 2012 All-Star Game from Kansas City were posted, most saw the American League as heavy favorites, especially given Justin Verlander would be pitching the first two innings. It was surprising to say the least that Verlander barely made it through the first, surrendering five runs out of the gate as […]

Fielder HRs, NL Pitchers Shutdown AL to Win All-Star Game; Beckett Hurt

Adrian Gonzalez may have out-homered Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder at the Home Run Derby, but Fielder’s home run mattered most Tuesday night at the 82nd All-Star Game at Chase Stadium in Phoenix. Fielder’s three-run home run off Texas’ C.J. Wilson in the fourth inning drove in the winning runs, and National League pitchers limited American League […]

2011 Fantasy Baseball Help: Third Base Pickups

In an already relatively shallow position, third basemen have really bit the injury bug lately. First, Evan Longoria fell in the first week of the season (but he has since returned). Then, it was your second-round pick, Ryan Zimmerman, who will now be out until mid-late June. More recently, David Freese (STL) and Pablo Sandoval (SF) […]

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L.

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, […]

Pablo Sandoval Showing Some Signs of Power

Quick Hits Cody Ross (OF), Florida Marlins Cody Ross has quietly put up great numbers in the last two months. Since May 1st he has hit .302 with 11 homers and 34 RBI. The power numbers are legit, Ross hit 22 homers in 145 games last year. However, the .300 batting average is a mirage […]

TGIF: The Atkins Diet

One thing that all fantasy owners have in common is that we tend to elevate our panic levels to critical conditions. Due to this, we may lose faith in under-performing players and quickly rid ourselves of the burden. I myself let San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval go rather quickly after he didn’t live up to my […]

TGIF: Sayonara Sandoval

Last Sunday on Yahoo! Fantasy Sports, Brad Evans’ “Weekly Rundown” column highlighted Florida Marlins catcher John Baker. I immediately took notice due to some catcher troubles I have been having in a few of my leagues. In two of my three leagues, I made a bold and stupid decision to draft San Francisco 3B Pablo […]
