The 2nd game in a row Dinelson Lamet has taken a no-hitter into the 6th inning and, this time, it went into the 7th, ending up 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 1 hit, 11 Ks, ERA at 1.61. I'm about to start moaning out his name like a pizza deliveryman in a porn. "I didn't...

While I'm sure we're all ready to close our eyes and hum loudly until it's 2030, I empathize with the fact that Wil Myers was probably doing the same thing circa 2018-2019. (Same thing Padres' fans have done for the past millennia.) And I'll be the first one...

After a mediocre opening week, I’m pretty happy with the results for last week. Alec Mills and Zach Plesac were great as our two-start streamers and guys like Michael Wacha, David Peterson and Christian Javier were solid too. The COVID craziness...

Welcome back to JKJ's School of Waiver Wire Wizardry. It's time for Lesson Two, where I hope to improve upon my decently successful Lesson One. James Karinchak doesn't have the closer gig like I and many others thought he would, so that's a big time bummer,...

The last few times of written my DFS articles the pitching has been atrocious, as seems to be the norm this season.  Today however, we have an abundance of aces to choose from.  Picking which one will produce the best value is the tricky part.  Jacob...

NOTE: This ranking is focused on redraft impact of players who’ve yet to debut in 2020. It’s a snapshot of all the information I can synthesize as of publication day.  Here’s Volume 1. Graduates from Vol. 1 = Jo Adell, Monte Harrison Here’s...

Most of the starting pitchers for week 3’s games haven’t even been officially announced yet. Pair this with reports that MLB is warning television stations to get their Big Bang Theory re-runs and copies of Shawshank Redemption loaded up and it's...

If I'm putting all my cards on the table, I'm not even sure where to begin with advice. This season is just plain crazy. Figuring out who, what, where, when and why almost seems impossible. I'm certainly not the first to say this, but it seems like the best...

Things are weird in this short season, that’s putting it lightly.  One thing I’m finding myself looking at more and more is riding the hot hand.  It’s a nine week season, if someone goes on a three week heater, that’s...hold...

Greetings all, I'm stepping in for Mr. Pants today throwing on short rest. I went and got loose in the pen and now I'm ready to get poppin'. It's been a long week so rather than beat around the bush, let's just dive right into what I saw around the MLB on...

I would say the fact you are reading a 2020 Fantasy Baseball Week 3 anything is a win. Multiple times a day it seems like nothing makes sense, and that's just in the world of baseball. Will St. Louis ever play a full schedule during the week, or is it just...

(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY YESTERDAY ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $5/MONTH.) The following happened last weekend: Bryce Harper laid on the hotel bed, on his stomach, feet up behind him, as he whispered into the hotel phone, "Tell me another story."...

Haha, 2020 is quite the year, isn't it? What a wonderful time to be alive. Hahahaha. You can do this Coolwhip, hold it together man. So I wrote nearly all of this before his Thursday start against the Royals. Or as I will call it, "the Night that the Gates...

Having fun chasing pitching yet? At least this short season won't be boring. There has been no shortage of actionable bullpen moves. They're not likely to slow down anytime soon. Get aggressive on middle relievers and closer spec plays. Somethings not right...

Matthew Boyd ($7,900) had a tough time in his first two starts this year, but a night against the Pirates is what Boyd needs to bounce back. The Pirates were the weakest lineup in baseball against left-handed pitching last year with a .289 wOBA. They've hit...

Surprised Dylan Bundy is breaking out, said no one because literally everyone said exactly that when he was traded to the Angels. Okay, maybe the O's are surprised, but I have a feeling even they knew it was coming. They just like losing, right? "We like to...

Here's an excerpt from a real conversation I had with my sister last week: Her: "Hey, have you ever seen Monty Python? You would like it." Me: "Is that the one where those guys get naked for child support money?" Her: "No... that's The Full Monty....

I'm not a condiment guy. Dipping fries in ketchup is fine, but I prefer gravy or clam chowder soup. Mayonnaise? Disgusting. Mustard? Repulsive. Relish? Nauseating. So, when it comes to hotdogs, I'm an au naturel kind of guy. I know, boring to most, but whatever....

The Cardinals, Marlins, and Phillies have born the brunt of the misery in this young baseball season thus far with Covid outbreaks and cancelled games.  This week, we've got a group of other teams that are getting put through the ringer with your more...

It’s days like Thursdays where we are thankful that FanDuel only requires us to pick one starting pitcher.  The pickings are slim in this five game slate and the pitchers are mediocre at best.  There is only one starter today that I have a...
