Fantasy Forward: Dodgers continue to make history, Phillies try to avoid it

In a wild two innings, the Dodgers scored five runs on four wild pitches (the most since 1920) during the seventh and eighth innings. Adam Ottavino struggled with command and bounced sliders with Los Angeles players scoring free runs. Cody Bellinger hit two more home runs in a game, the sixth time he’s done so, […]

Is Fantasy Football a Game of Skill, or just Dumb Luck?

Forrest Gump. In the movie, he went to college on a football scholarship; had the distinction of meeting 3 acting presidents; owned a multi-million dollar shrimp company; and married the girl of his dreams. Yet all of these events happened purely by coincidence. Serendipity. Happy accidents. Blind chance. Dumb luck. Maybe you know of a […]

Welcome to week 13 of the waiver wire report. Each week I will dig through the f/a pool to find the best potential free agents on waivers (under 50% ownership).

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 12

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Lorenzo Cain – It’s safe to say his low stolen base total from 2016 was due to that hammy injury. He’s already matched his stolen base total from last year, and in fewer at […]

A trio of wild pitchers having good seasons

Buy Low Sell High: Trout Fishing

Changing Track Records: Cabrera, Castro and Smoak

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. Three months ago, how excited were you in selecting Aaron Judge?
