Flash in the pan or something more - Brock Holt

Just a disclaimer before I start this post. I'm working on kind of switching up the way I do things here on the blog. Before, a large majority of my posts were dedicated to game recaps and the like. I'm attempting to get away from that. I may still do it occasionally but only when I have writer's block. The big reason I did that for so long is in hopes that someone who mattered would run into my blog and I would get exposure and potentially a job. That's why I was always so proper. Well, enough of that. I'm going to start doing a lot of different things now.

Detroit Tigers must stop the madness

Detroit Tigers must stop the madness

Detroit Tigers must stop the madness

The Detroit Tigers are running out of rope. Just when all seems right with the world, after a 3-game sweep of the division leading White Sox and with the Indians coming to town, this team, yet again, has found a way to disappoint. Faster than it takes Alex Avila to grow a beard (or kill a rally), the Tigers are seemingly grasping at straws for the umpteenth time this season.

MLB pennant races

Recently on thearmchairselector.com

In the northern hemisphere, September marks the end of the summer proper and the start of cooler days leading into the autumn. With that also means the winding down of the baseball season for most teams and the culmination of the pennant races for a few. There is a slightly different format this year, which means there is a slightly different aspect to the races. There is a higher emphasis on winning the division outright, but more teams overall are in the hunt. Division-by-division, the races break down like so:

Fantasy Baseball: A late-season note for non-contenders

Fantasy Baseball: A late-season note for non-contenders

Fantasy Baseball: A late-season note for non-contenders

Throughout the course of the season, we’ve talked about an awful lot of things. Some people have agreed with strategy ideas that we’ve laid out, others haven’t. That’s fine. Remember, this is an election year, we need to keep in mind that everyone’s styles won’t always mesh with each other. So, when I talk about streaming for example, I’m more than fine if you don’t like the strategy, or the pitchers I suggest.
