For some time, I’ve been bizarrely intrigued by Elvis Andrus. Once, he appeared to be the next Jose Reyes, a 100+ run, 40+ steal, fantasy behemoth. While he has been a sturdy fantasy performer, he has often put together great first halves that were never a prelude to greatness. For
Once we get past the first week of the season we get to the point where fantasy baseball players become nervous about certain players on their roster. There is an internal voice in every player’s head when the switch gets turned from “it’s early” to “I’m worried.” That switch is
Over time, I find I just become more and more impressed with the Rangers management (of the non-Ron Washington variety). After getting one of the worst third strike calls I’ve seen the other day, I managed to catch the end of Joe Nathan’s one run save appearance last night, and

The First Pitch It was feast or famine night on Wednesday. Five of the thirteen games saw teams score eight or more runs, but there were also four shutouts before the late games even were completed. The Miami Marlins were the only team most people would think would be shutout.
The season just got started a week ago, and if you are anything like me you are ready for some serious action. I enjoy playing the small games, but every once in a while you get that itch to do something a little bit more. Enter the DraftKings $150,000 Walk-Off coming
The First Pitch Tuesday was not a nice day/night for most pitchers. Only Lance Lynn, Cliff Lee, Anibal Sanchez and rookie Nick Tepesch had games you should be impressed by. Lynn struck out 10 Cincinnati hitters in six one-run innings. It was a very impressive start. Lee came one out
There are always little pecularities when you break down fantasy baseball into individual leagues. One of those is that each league has positions that are strong and positions that are weak. In the case of catching, we notice that the National League is considerably stronger than the American League. Of
The First Pitch Paul Maholm and Clay Buchholz followed up solid season debuts with excellent second starts yesterday. They each went seven innings, allowed no runs and got a win. As a result, their ownership percentages are on the rise. But should you hop on the bandwagon and add
