The Roy Halladay Trade Sweepstakes

Quite possibly the most season-altering move a team could make would be trading for an ace before the deadline to fulfill a hole in the starting rotation. We saw the benefits of that for Milwaukee last year when they acquired C.C. Sabathia and rode his arm into the playoffs. Well, fortunately for us rumor mill […]

Halladay Dominates Red Sox in 3-1 Win

Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, Roy Halladay might have made his final start with the Blue Jays, and he made it a good one. The subject of some big trade rumors, Halladay played very well on a big stage, giving up just six hits and one run with seven strikeouts in a complete game […]

Red Sox Back to Work, Head to Toronto

With the All-Star Game behind them, the Red Sox open the second half with a road trip to Toronto and then to Texas, two venues that always seem to prove troublesome no matter how good the teams are. The Blue Jays started the season very well, on the arms of their pitching staff, but have […]

Nomar Returns, Sox to Send Five to All-Star Game

This past week saw some exciting events from the All-Star selections to return of a Fenway favorite for the first time in nearly five years. The Red Sox had a complete homestand this week as they finished their series against the Mariners and had visits from the Oakland Athletics and the Kansas City Royals. The […]

TGIF: 2009 BABIP Leaders and Losers (Pitchers)

Last week, I touched upon the hitters in baseball who were benefiting and the hitters who were suffering as a result of Batting Average on Balls In Play (BABIP). As a matter of fact, click right here to read all about it. It’s ok, I will wait a few minutes. You done? Great! Now it is time to […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 9 (6-1 – 6-7)

Yay! Zack Greinke finally had his first bad start of the season in a 9-3 loss to the Blue Jays. I can now finally re-name the “Best Pitchers” section of the Wrap-Up. Greinke struggled last Friday against the Blue Jays by giving up five earned runs in five innings of work to raise his ERA […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 6 (5-11 – 5-17)

Just a quick thought for this week’s opening. Has anyone copyrighted “Fantasy Pro Wrestling”? Seriously, that would be a game that could take off instantly. You draft professional wrestlers and put them in your lineups and keep score based on their win/loss records. The only problem I see with it is the fact that there […]

The World Baseball Classic is a Joke

We’re already on the second instance of the World Baseball Classic and Bud Selig’s wonderful idea has already become meaningless. I mean honestly, who would have thought that the World Baseball Classic would not produce the best baseball from the top talent? Who could believe that so many teams would keep their players that had […]

TGIF: 2009 Starting Pitcher Rankings

With Pitchers and Catchers due to report to camp in just under two weeks, this signals the beginning of the 2009 baseball season. The game of fantasy baseball takes the most preparation due to the massive pool of players in the sport. Over the next few weeks, I will be breaking down the best players […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 14 (6-30 – 7-6)

[View League Standings and Recent Transactions] Friday’s Red Sox-Yankees game was memorable for the “balancing ball”. It seemed as if we were watching a blunder from the Bad News Bears themselves. The vision of Timmy Lupus springs to mind as we remember Lupus’s goof in the outfield that cost the Bears a game. The only […]

Lester Outduels Halladay, Sox Snap Streak

Jon Lester pitched eight shutout innings, but left with no score. Roy Halladay went pitch-for-pitch with Lester, but ran into some trouble in the ninth. With David Ortiz on second, Kevin Youkilis smacked a single up the middle that was bobbled by Vernon Wells. Ortiz came around to score the game-winning run, leading to a 1-0 […]

AL East Fantasy Preview: Toronto Blue Jays

Oh Canada, our neighbors from the north. The Jays once again finished 3rd in the AL East behind the Sox and Yankees. This is no longer the franchise from the glory days of the early 90′s but there is most definitely some pure talent in this lineup. Of course the notion that Toronto can overcome […]

Notes on Beckett vs Halladay

There were three very impressive performances tonight: Josh Beckett, Jacoby Ellsbury and cap down to Roy Halladay. Josh Beckett had another solid performance and gained his 17th win tying him with the most wins in baseball. Beckett got the lead in the 4th and allowed one big mistake to Matt Stairs in the top of […]

Beckett vs Halladay

After last night’s marathon, Josh Beckett and Roy Halladay look to slow down the scoring. Last night, in total, there were 11 pitchers, 23 runs scored, 32 hits, and 37 men left on base. Beckett is going for win #17. Which would put Beckett into a 6-way tie for the league lead in wins. His […]
