Memorial Day MLB is some of the best baseball of the year and it doesn’t look like this year’s version will disappoint. There will be a few games to watch for weather coverage, but expect most if not all of these games to be played on Monday. New depositors to
In the Week 9 edition of fantasy baseball 3×3, we’re changing our tune on Marcell Ozuna, reaffirming our faith in Justin Verlander, and passing on Country Breakfast.
There isn’t anything that resembles a theme or common thread between players found in this week’s Free Agent Fixes. There are, however, a couple of right-handed starters highlighted that can help teams in various leagues. They’re joined by a patient first baseman I’ve discussed in this column before, a young
With the 2014 Major League Baseball season now officially a quarter of the way complete, it’s time to unveil the Quarter Awards. What better way to reward the fantasy baseball’s best (and worst) players than handing out some prestigious awards? While certain awards were very easy to choose a winner
Yesterday, I posted a piece about Julio Teheran. I didn’t mention WAR in it, mainly because it was a fantasy piece and your league settings likely mean the statistic doesn’t mean much for you in this context. Teheran’s WAR, however, was in the back of my mind the whole time.

Below is a podcast with me discussing daily fantasy strategy for the day. It’s only about eight minutes long. I discuss the starting pitchers with the highest projected point totals and the ones who are the best value for their price. I also discuss which teams are the best to
The NFL and, to a lesser extent, the NBA drafts have become sports holidays. Tons of hype and prime-time TV coverage have made moderate sports fans into armchair Mel Kipers and Jay Bilases (Jay Bilii?). Only the most ardent fans know *anything* about the MLB draft. Even while access to
We are now officially a quarter of the way through the 2014 Major League Baseball season and it’s time for fantasy owners to start taking notice of where their team resides in the standings. You can figure out pretty quickly which areas your team needs reinforcement in by taking a
Julio Teheran, whom I’ve written about before, fired his second complete game shutout of the season Tuesday night. His first came against the Phillies; his second, against the Brewers. Julio Teheran is very, very good. But if you’re like me and look at peripherals a good deal, especially this early
Wednesday’s MLB went pretty well if you followed along the Daily Double Switch. The hitter’s didn’t do as great as I had hoped, but the pitching did well for their prices. Also, my hunch that Chris Davis was underpriced and worth the gamble worked out well. It’s worth noting that
About 90 years ago, a relatively young Yankees first baseman seemed on the path to a long and prosperous career. Coming into the 1925 season, Wally Pipp was coming off of two consecutive 100+ RBI campaigns. He had three other 90+ RBI seasons to his credit before that point. There
