In two different roto leagues this year, I’ve seen a team jump out to a seemingly insurmountable lead. In both of those leagues, that team is now in a real fight. In sports, runaway leads are not necessarily a good thing. The last thing you ever want to do is get comfortable. I’d like to relay...
Last year when the Pittsburgh Pirates released Lyle Overbay, I was surprised but I just took it for what it was worth. While Overbay was due a lot of money last year, there was a decent amount of roster turnover last year and once Derrek Lee was acquired there really was no need for Overbay. Now...
Late Season Fantasy Baseball Pickups Fantasy Football has taken over but I'm still very much in contention for a fantasy baseball title in 4 out of my 5 leagues. We won't talk about the other league. Especially when that team deals with Evan Longoria, Matt Kemp and Giancarlo Stanton injuries all...

It comes as no surprise to anyone, anymore when high-profile athletes get busted for drugs. Sports headlines are filled with players testing positive for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) or having run-ins with the law for illegal substances. This last week has been a terrible week for athletes...
The Rangers and Nationals flip back this week and the Cardinals make a jump after taking 2 of 3 from the Reds; on the flip side, the Astros are still at the bottom. Like aways, these power rankings take into account record, run differential, and farm system; record weighs the most in the score and...
For the first time in this whole season I, as a Baltimore Orioles fan, have hope. Despite this being one of the most successful seasons in a long time for Baltimore there has always been this aura of doubt for me. I am always a pessimist when it comes to the ball club, so even with everything going...

Last Week: 5-1 This Week: at KC (8/28-30; CWS 8/31-9/2) So, What Happened?  It’s what didn’t happen that was rather frustrating. The Tigers had a fine 5-1 week at home, but lost ground in the standings, because what didn’t happen was a White Sox loss—not a single one. Chicago had a 6-0 week. Even...

Did anybody notice that the Detroit Tigers just went 5-1 this past week? Amidst a still seemingly frustrated fan base, they did it by scoring just 22 runs in those 6 games. The difference maker was that Detroit’s starting rotation was, as Fox Sports Detroit analyst Rod Allen would say, “off the...

First off, there were many people that did not like this trade, for it lacked big hitter appeal.   Most fans wanted a splash at the trade deadline.  Although he is not Upton or Pence, he has provided the Pirates with some great play in the field and a very consistent bat.   He is hitting around ....
