After many long summer days of insignificant updates on the Biogenesis situation in Major League Baseball, the league finally dropped the hammer on Monday afternoon by announcing the suspensions of thirteen players. Alex Rodriguez is the biggest name on the list, and his continued involvement in baseball’s darkest hour has earned him a 211-game ban […]

A lot has happened in the MLB over the last 24 hours, and it could get even more interesting in the weeks to come. The fact that Ryan Braun went to the Major League Baseball to negotiate a deal in which he would be suspended for the rest of the 2013 season, is not going […]

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN.com, the Red Sox have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Jonny Gomes. The free agent spent last season on the Oakland Athletics and can play all over the outfield, as well as DH. This could be a perfect fit for the Red Sox, as they are looking […]

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 […]

Despite Winning Appeal, Ryan Braun Still Guilty

Ryan Braun is still a cheater. Whatever independent arbitrator Shyam Das might say, nothing will change Braun’s urine testing positive for synthetic testosterone, and a lot of it at that. And until someone conclusively accounts for that, Braun will remain a steroid-user, his name forever smeared with the b.s. he’s spoon-fed the media since his […]

Ryan Braun Proven Innocent, Suspension Lifted

Ryan Braun can sleep much easier these days. The Brewers outfielder successfully won his appeal of the 50-game suspension he received for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. In December it was initially reported that the National League MVP had failed an October test due to high levels of testosterone. Immediately a negative outburst of reaction […]

Steroid Use Should Cost Ryan Braun MVP

When you get caught cheating, you’re supposed to be punished. Copy your friend’s homework? Zero on the assignment. Run a red light to save a couple minutes? Ticket. Carry on an elicit affair?

Ryan Braun Should Keep MVP Despite Positive Steroids Test

Last Saturday night, the news broke that National League MVP Ryan Braun failed a performance-enhancing drug test in October. This dramatic truth revealed is devastating for MLB, which seemed to be beginning truly moving past the “Steroids Era” that began in the early 90′s. Braun is an established superstar of the game, arguably the very […]

TGIF: Fantasy Baseball Draft, 2010

With the end of the 2009 season, it is never too early to look ahead to 2010. To me, baseball season never ends and I am already thinking about my strategy for next season (most notably because I finished 9th in one league). Believe it or not, before the year is out, some fantasy guru’s […]

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 […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 5 (5-4 – 5-10)

As I have documented before, I am in three baseball leagues. In two, I am in great position in the top 5. In one, I am in dead last thanks to two factors: Injuries and Lance Berkman hitting under .200. The news did not get any better last week when Cubs’ 3B Aramis Ramirez dislocated […]

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: 2009 OF Rankings

Aaaahhhh finally, a position with some depth. It can be argued that you should address your shallower positions (2B, 3B, SS) in the first rounds and wait on the outfielders. This is actually a great way to draft. With more power than any other place on the diamond, the outfield has the luxury of hefty […]
