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. […]

My Trip to Wrigley Field

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. […]

Nelson Cruz Called Up to Play for Rangers Rangers’ OF Nelson Cruz was called up to the majors and will play almost everyday for the rest of the season. In Triple-A, he was absolutely destroying everything he saw with a .342 avg, 37 HR, and 99 RBI. In 96 games last year he hit very […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 17 (7-21 – 7-27)

We are about to enter August and also about to see the end of the trade deadline. I really hope the Red Sox don’t trade Manny because for the sake of three of my fantasy teams, I don’t want Pat Burrell in Boston. It’s not that I don’t like Pat Burrell, I love the guy. […]

If you look through the box scores from Saturday night, you will come across a stange site when you see the Dodgers and Angels game. The Dodgers won the game 1-0. The strange part?

Harden, A’s End Sox Win Streak

He looked very strong however against the Red Sox Friday night, striking out eight in six innings of work while allowing […]

Red Sox Back in America and Back in Action

Tell me if this sounds familiar… Game 1, Tues: Bos. vs Oak. Dice-K vs Joe Blanton. Game 2, Weds: Bos. vs Oak. Jon Lester vs Rich Harden. Deja vu all over again. Thanks Yogi. Even in the WWE rematches don’t come this quickly, but luckily the Red Sox and Athletics get to roll the dice […]
