K-Rod and the beleaguered Mets bullpen

The Angels have always been my favorite American League team (The Cincinnati Reds are my favorite baseball team period), so the 2002 World Championship team really managed to capture my imagination with its relentless hustle and infectious joy. Guys like Tim “King Fish” Salmon, Darin Erstad, Garret Anderson, Troy Glaus, and Troy Percival have been […]

Re: A.J. Burnett

I, like most fantasy baseball players, have always been enamored with pitchers of A.J. Burnett’s ilk when he was coming up as a youngster on the Florida Marlins (via the New York Mets farm system in the Al Leiter trade): big, strapping, with  electrifying stuff to match, and all those strikeouts that came along with […]

Addai may not go against the Detroit Lions

So there goes the potential of a great matchup against one of the worst teams in the history of the league. Unfortunately, I wasn’t savvy/smart enough to have Dominic Rhodes on my team. So I will be “stat chasing” after all with Mr. Antonio Bryant. My good friend Randy, a die hard Bucs fan, sent […]

Well, here I am, along with thousands and thousands of fantasy footballers out there, on the cusp of reaching the title game. These are the moments we play for since we start watching the NFL draft in April and start preparing our pre-draft rankings based on training camp player movement and battles. The only thing […]
