One of the things I love most about baseball, but particularly covering prospects, is when a guy I totally missed on pops up, and exceeds expectations. Sure, I could become obsessed with my own reputation, and shoot down any suggestion that I missed on a player....

Since Corey Kluber returned from the DL, he's been lights out.  Then lights on.  Then off.  On.  Off!  Nothing but glow sticks.  The sweet smell of body odor, ganja and herbal ecstasy rises.  An Asian man with pigtails walks...

Happy Father's Day to all but five of our readers.  I am not a father, but I have a dog I ignore most of the time, then play catch with after my wife tells me to, so, technically, I am a father too.  For Father's Day, I went to see the Tupac movie,...

Trey Mancini aka All Day Trey Bombz was 2-for-4 Friday night with his 11th home run. He was all like, "Na Na, Bottoms Up, let's see that one in Slow Motion." Those are Trey Songz songs for the unindoctrined.  Trey is the MAN-cini lately, for real,...

On Thursday night, Gumby will be taking the mound for the Yankees, taking on the Athletics at the Coliseum. Gumby, of course, is rookie left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery, who has put together a nice season thus far, with an 8.67 K/9 and a 3.27 BB/9. This...

Bryce Harper is in a great spot tonight against Julio Teheran, who has a 6.59 xFIP against left-handed hitters this season. What other high-priced players should be on your fantasy radar on Wednesday?

Yesterday, Jacob deGrom threw a complete game with 1 ER, 9 baserunners (4 BBs), 6 Ks, lowering his ERA to 4.33.  Oh, his peripherals are beautiful.  Velocity is fine, even up a tad up, and that's not the new radar gun positioning talking.  For...

The Jewish Sphinx has a riddle that goes like this, "What does the old man scream while at the urinal?"  The answer, of course, is, "Peacock!"  The Jewish Sphinx is silly, but hella good with money!  "Why are you buying all those irrigation...

Something struck me the other day.  Luckily, not a bus.  No, it was a thought.  Bus-sized thought!  I was looking at Rob Neyer's Twitter account, and he's almost completely stopped talking about baseball and it's all about politics.  It's...

Ryon Healy (44.7% owned - increase of 18.3%) has hit 13 home runs in 57 games this season. In 72 games last year, Healy clubbed 13 home runs in 72 games. For those that are too lazy to use their desktop abacus, that comes out to 26 home runs in 129 games to...

Get ready for the Full Nelson (AP)For a number of reasons, it hasn’t been a fun year for pitching. MLB is on pace for a new record in aggregate home runs. A bunch of big-name aces are hurt, and several are stumbling. And consider the path of ERA over...

In this piece, I’ll be updating one of my favorite strategies to identify starting pitchers to target via trade for fantasy baseball players in 2017. Each and every baseball site you visit can probably provide you with a strategy to identify players...

Ty Blach threw his first career complete game shutout Friday night surrendering seven hits and striking out four enroute to his fourth win of the year. If he were Jewish you could say yesterday was his Blach Sabbath. *crickets* It was Ty's fifth straight...

Bronson Arroyo, in his last full season, was a pitch-to-contact innings eater who didn’t walk a lot of guys and had a below average GB rate. Although he wasn’t good by any stretch, the combination of not walking guys, combined with below average...

Avisail Garcia's BABIP took a dive compared to his performance in April, but he's still experiencing some good fortune at the dish.

The title is referring to 24.  I never saw 24.  Well, I've seen the number.  I never saw the show.  No interest really.  Not my sorta thing.  I do have a Kiefer Sutherland story though.  I think I recapped it in my book,...

Over the past few weeks, Yasmani Grandal has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball. Despite being a pinch-hitter who sometimes wears the wrong helmet, he has been hitting .345 with a .392 wOBA over his last 30 days. Part of that has to do with an unsustainable...

A funny thing happened while I was setting my lineups for this week. I picked up not one, BUT TWO starting pitchers from the Colorado Rockies. Here's where I blow your mind....They're both named Tyler! Weird, right? You see friends, there once was a myth in...

Happy Memorial Day DFSers.  Be sure to pause and give thanks today for those men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  They are the true heros.  We’ve got a nice, full early slate today and a five game late...
