Welcome to a lovely short (and early!) slate today as we kick off Memorial Day Weekend. (Thursday counts as the weekend right?) Maybe it’s the excitement of the next big thing but I’m always drawn to rookies in fantasy. They can be streaky but...

The Orioles are on pace to give up 1,776 home runs, because they're close to our nation's capital, and that is a great figure, a historic number.  A cannot be imitated -- help me out here, Captain Lou Albano -- never duplicated number.  Scratch...

We get a fun one today because Miami Marlins prospect Chris Vallimont wasn't on my radar. Last night, he threw seven no-hit innings and struck out nine batters. That gives him a 2.70 ERA on the season with a 10+ K/9 and a crisp 2.7 BB/9. All three stats are...

But so far he’s made me wanna roll my windows down and snoooooooze. Nelson Cruz wasn’t doing what we all drafted him to do anyway so maybe this rest will do him a body good. He’s designated to only hit 7 HRs and 22 RBI? Not on my team! Cruz...

Especially in H2H, you really can never get enough starting pitching. I'm a firm believer that most of your bench spots should be utilized for having SPs. One, because it is frustrating trying to decide between what hitters to start and seeing stats sitting...

I'm like Neo dodging bullets, only instead of bullets, it's bad pitchers.  Bends in slo-mo and avoids Ed-Rod, twists to the right and avoids Trevor Bauer, twists left and sees Jalen Beeks...Well, I'd never own him, so...Then again, he has been pretty...

I rarely go to Starbucks. I'm good with my Jose's Vanilla Nut from Costco thank you very much, but when I do enter one, I turn into a complete psycho. I blame the siren on the logo that must be whispering sweet nothings into my ear. Hi, Shelley. Yes, I'd like...

Cougs, what are you doing to our dear Fantasy Master Lothario? Is this shaking pillow in fact a cure for snoring, or just a modern torture device? Reader, you decide. In the meantime there was fantasy baseball to discuss, like this weekends FAAB madness, Shane...

There are so many rookies out there right now that I can’t find room to try and roster them all!  After basically punting corner infield in most of my Razzball Commenter League drafts this year I’ve been able to find Daniel Vogelbach, Mitch...

It hasn’t taken long for Francisco Lindor to return to his status as an elite fantasy player, as he’s already got six homers and five steals in just over a month of play.  Lindor has an extremely high ceiling thanks to his power/speed combo,...

There were many big movers and shakers in the Top 100 this week perhaps none bigger this year (and maybe the past few years) than Josh Bell. Bell has slapped a hit in all but 9 of his 42 games so far this season. In 15 May games alone he's hitting .383 with...

Not your Grandfathers Top 100 Starting Pitchers… Grandpa-Donk handled a lot of wood back in his day, if you know what I’m saying. Not that kind of wood! Alright, maybe that kind of wood, it was the 60's and from what I understand the donkey...

Another week, another post by me mentioning the Mets. Does it seem like I pick on the Mets too much? I am a Phillies fan, so it's entirely possible. Maybe the Mets could teach their pitchers how to hold runners and get to home plate faster like the rest of...

Monday’s FanDuel action appears to have a pretty clear path to victory. That path starts with the Nationals’ Patrick Corbin, as he takes on the slumping New York Mets. After being shut out in their previous two contests, New York is in serious...

Kinda obsessed with our Top 100 Fantasy Starts tool (not a tool as much as it's a free list).  Since I'm writing this on Sunday, I'm not sure yet where Shane Bieber and his 9 IP, 0 ER, 5 hits, zero walks, 15 Ks will rank, but my guess is 1st or 2nd...

Last week’s streamers scared me to death and they actually did alright. This week honestly isn't much better though and it’s clear that the pitching landscape in baseball is downright ugly right now. The simple fact is, these backend pitchers kinda...

This week Lance and Lifshitz are back in saddle after a long layover. Not to worry, we pickup right where we left off by diving into some of the callups over the last week, as well as a laundry list of live looks between the two of us over the first month...

Great Sunday to you, Sunday Brunchers. Try to keep those hats on. We have ten games on the FanDuel Main Slate today, and almost all will be significantly effected by wind. Let us hope we can break this wind together. Let’s crop dust the rest of the...

The Cleveland return for Yan Gomes is looking sharp. Not only did they land Jefry Rodriguez (3.45 ERA in five big league starts), but they also received Daniel Johnson, an outfielder who is one of the hottest hitters in Double-A at the moment. Johnson is on...

I remember fondly my pickling phase of years ago when I went ahead and pickled just about everything.  Pickled eggs, pickled garlic, pickled...pickles. Fast forward 3 years and all those jars are still sitting on the shelf and I’m fearful of any...
