Hyun-Jin Ryu, known as "the monster," will be making his first start back from the disabled list tonight against the Giants. He's projected for just 9.5 points on Draft, making him an outstanding value play for what should be a stellar outing. The Giants have...

Since being acquired from the Twins, Lance Lynn (43.9% owned - increase of 27.1%) has pitched 11.2 stellar innings for the Yankees: 7 hits allowed, 0 earned runs, 1 walk, and 14 strikeouts. He's the toast of the town! So much so that the Ls have been replaced...

by Connor Henry With just under two months left in the MLB regular season we’ve seen the vast majority of players regress to the mean when it comes to their BABIP. There’s been some obvious outliers such as Anthony Rizzo who continues to be pl...

Felix Hernandez went 6 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 5.73 vs. Bartolo Colon - 7 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 5.18.  Or is that Bartolo Colon, weighing in at 518 pounds from parts unknown and ratios you don't want to know?  This matchup was billed as, "F-Her/Colon, rated...

Jon Gray made two starts in the minor leagues on July 3 and 8. His first was ok (6 IP, 2 ER, o BB, 6 K) and his second wasn't great (4 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 BB, 7 K). Craig Edwards of Fangraphs wrote a great column on whether Gray deserved his demotion. His premise...

Five hitters, five pitchers. “All” under 50% owned. Let’s scour the waivers! Rougned Odor (77% owned) is too popular to make this list, but I just wanted to give props to myself for including him as my bounce-back candidate for 2018. I readily...

I try to avoid repeating ledes during the season and Sean Newcomb already had one.  There I said, "It's 2074, Grey Albright's frozen head is on a shelf next to Ted Williams' frozen head...I took a picture of Ted's penis...I'm so romantic!"  Damn,...

Year after year, Kole Calhoun (3-5% FAAB) continues to be an excellent replacement in fantasy leagues. This week we witnessed a significant loss in Aaron Judge, and necessary moves must occur to recreate some of that stat-line. With 9 HR in July alone,...

J.A. Happ might've realized he wasn't staying with the Jays much longer when guys in the front office kept asking him if he liked the team's new jersey and it was the same jersey he had been wearing but a small man with a goatee, who said he worked as Peter...

by Connor Henry Over the last several weeks I’ve discussed some of the most important batted ball data that you can examine to determine whether regression may be coming to a player’s BABIP. This week I’d like to put that batted ball data...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Somehow, Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Wade Miley has worked around a poor 11-to-11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 17 ⅓ IP this...

If only I had a top performing pitcher to highlight that was the son of an ex-pitcher to really drive home my title. I guess I could discuss Dereck Rodriguez, but his daddy was a catcher. I could change the title to "Son of a Catchter", but it doesn't have...

Yesterday, Daniel Poncedeleon was called up and threw no hitter (thru seven innings and then was pulled from game while striking out three hitters, but it's more fun to say he threw a no-hitter, so ignore this).  Incredibly, Poncedeleon is 478 years...
