What If…Ellsbury for Granderson?

In the Winter of 2009, the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, and Arizona Diamondbacks executed one of the most memorable 3-way trades in recent history. New York received big name outfielder Curtis Granderson. It’s amazing how even the trade has appeared to be across the board after a couple of seasons. Granderson has grown into […]

Sabathia, Yankees Bullpen Strand 16 Red Sox Base Runners

Three Off-Season MLB Moves That Affect the Red Sox

Plenty of action has already taken place during the off-season. The Red Sox have made their share of moves (John Lackey) and also made intentions known (Adrian Gonzalez).

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 8 (5-25 – 5-31)

OK, so the Matt Wieters experiment isn’t looking good so far (.182 avg, 0 RBI), but hey, these things just need time baby. In one of my leagues, I was offered a trade. It was Angels’ 1B Kendry Morales for Colorado 3B Garrett Atkins. Maybe this guy got a hold of my piece on Atkins […]
