I really wish Rhys Hoskins pronounced his name “Riz” so that I could use a “Nobody Beats The Rhys” headline, but it is apparently pronounced “Reese.” Who do I talk to about making that change? Does anyone have the phone...

James Shields has given up a home run in 11 of 13 games this year. Outside of the first 2 games when he gave up 2 each, he’s given up at least 5 hits a game (he’s gone more than 6 once this year and that was 6.1). He’s walked someone in every...

Adam Lind draws a great matchup tonight against Padres' righty Jhoulys Chacin, who has a 5.14 xFIP against left-handed bats. Who else should you target for big-time value in daily fantasy on Thursday?

Kolten Wong (14.2% owned - increase of 9%) was far from being the most added player over the past week. In fact, he barely made the list, but the fact that he made the list at all is amazing. It would be Wong of me to not at least dig into him further, no? Ok,...

On the ones and twos, it's not DJ Khaled, with a cigar in his baby's mouth, dropping another one in a major key.  It's yo' boy, DJ LeMahieu (4-for-5, 4 runs, 1 RBI), the French-sounding EDM mixmaster, spinning his wheels around the bases.  Yo, DJ...

Camelot is the supposed castle and court of the legendary and romanticized King Arthur. Over time, it's come to mean "any idyllic place or period, especially one of great happiness." My view of Camelot is best expressed by Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Which...

If you need a refresher on how insane Alex Wood's season has been, I got you. Wood has a 2.38 ERA in 98 1/3 innings with a 10.07 K/9 and 2.47 BB/9, including a 2.52 FIP and 2.96 Deserved Run Average, or DRA. Those are straight up ace numbers. So while he's...

The Book of Job says, "We will send out at least one email a day to all your contacts whether you like it or not."  Shoot, I immediately see what I did wrong there.  I Googled for a Bible quote, and accidentally got an employee handout from LinkedIn....

Baseball's parity is better than any other sport.  You can go into the season like, say, the Rockies.  No chance at all of the playoffs with no closer, no pitching, an injured offseason acquisition and be a favorite for the playoffs in July, without...

While looking at the top OPS guys over the past two weeks top A’s prospect Matt Chapman stood out; his 1.190 OPS ranks 12th, his ISO is #1 at .571 and he’s doing this with a .227 BABIP. Chapman hit 23 homers at A+ ball in 2015 and 36 homers between...

We're on an ultralight beam on Thursday as Zack Godley takes the mound against the Cardinals. It's been a God dream for Zack this season as he's got a 3.32 ERA with a 9.30 K/9 in his 13 starts this season. He's completely supported by his 3.12 FIP as well...
