You know the old saying; “you can’t predict baseball”? Well, the last fortnight this has been truer than ever. Back for the week 9 preview, I offered up 4 Two Start Stars. They started the week with a bad start, two ok starts and one great start. And that was
We are entering week 10 and things are a tad different this week. Due to my own schedule (namely a weekend away), the week 10 preview is being typed up on a Thursday. Obviously, this means a fair bit more guess work when it comes to our Two Start Stars.

Late in the draft, you would have been looking for specific stats to round off your team. That’s what you do. It’s the 20th round and you’re light on speed. So you draft Rajai Davis, knowing he has next to zero power and will likely only knock in a couple
