About Nick Mariano - RotoBaller

Just your run of the mill fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. Just kidding. I'm actually a slightly above average fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. NY born and raised. I run on trails and hike up mountains. Addicted to apples and peanut butter. I could read about cognitive biases forever. Yankees, NY Giants, NY Rangers. However a decade of fantasy sports have really given me more of an appreciation for all teams. I also have a soft spot for the Buccaneers (it's a long story going back to Madden 2000). Feel free to reach out on Twitter, @NMariano53, I'll discuss just about anything.

Nick Mariano - RotoBaller has written 1090 articles so far, you can find them below.


Welcome back to this investigative piece where we examine players who have seen some notable changes in their power profiles -- for better or for worse -- in 2017. As usual, you don’t need me to tell you that Miguel Sano and Aaron Judge are strong or that Jarrod Dyson and Billy Hamilton are toward the bottom... Read More

We’re wading into the second half here with the Midsummer Classic in the rearview mirror, and the waiver wire isn’t all that spectacular. That said, there are some big things occurring in the trade world that could shake some rotations up with the Trade Deadline approaching and prospect fever (aka the Super Two baloney) nearing...

With the first half of the season in the books, it’s time for one last RotoBaller rankings update. As with our May edition, these rest-of-season rankings come from yours truly and all-around good fellow Kyle BIshop. We’ve each taken a position since Wednesday and that means that today wraps up the action, with the bullpen... Read More

With the first half of the season in the books, it’s time for one last RotoBaller rankings update. As with our May edition, these rest-of-season rankings come from myself and the ever-so-suave Kyle Bishop. We’ll tackle each position individually, with one column from each of us today through Sunday. Alongside the catcher breakdown, Day One bears... Read More

When this article goes live, it will be Wednesday of the All-Star break -- the first day since the dawning days of April without any baseball events. In these cold, dark times, many fantasy owners will have a bit of cabin fever with their teams and may be looking for a change. Either you’re a... Read More

It'd be nice if we could avoid the word "sleeper" because it feels as though it has lost its meaning over the years, but SEO practices and the language of the fantasy landscape demands it. I believe it's important for each article to spell out what they mean by the term, lest we mix signals and... Read More

We’re now less than a week away from a little Midseason siesta -- also known as the All-Star break -- when everyone will be given a few days without any changes to their lot as they assess their standing and can likely be pressed into some worthwhile deals. If you just celebrated July 4th, I’m... Read More

Everyone loves to talk about sleepers and which late-round fliers are going to deliver them to the promised land, but those picks can only blossom when overvalued land mines are left for others to step on. Here we'll be looking at two players per position who I think will underperform their draft day cost and... Read More

We’re just days away from the calendar turning to July and feeling as though the season has truly crossed the midway mark. Then it’ll only be two weeks until the All-Star break, when everyone will be given a few days without any changes to their lot as they assess their standing and can likely be... Read More

You know the deal by now: You need pitchers, I need to gab. It’s Week 12 and we’re roughly one week away from the season’s halfway point, which means all of us will blindly look at the numbers, double them and then go off about what everyone's pace is. It's fun to speak about first-... Read More

Rockies right-hander Jon Gray took the hill for the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes on Monday evening, throwing 50-of-74 pitches for strikes as he allowed one earned run while racking up seven strikeouts against one walk over 4 1/3 innings. Things appear to be going about as well as one could hope for the 25-year-old, as the... Read More

Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson, who hadn't taken the mound since May 30 due to inflammation in his left knee, looked fantastic in his first rehab start on June 18 for Triple-A Albuquerque. The southpaw threw 51-of-77 pitches for strikes, allowing one run over five innings while striking out six. While his most recent Major League... Read More

Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado had himself a Father's Day for the history books on Sunday. The superstar slugger went 4-for-5 with a single, a double, a triple and a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead Colorado over the San Francisco Giants, 7-5, with his first career cycle. He got... Read More

Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland won after giving up one run on eight hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings on Saturday against the Giants. Now 8-4, the rookie owns a 3.42 ERA not due to his strikeouts (5.51 K/9) but because of his ability to induce grounders at a ridiculous 58.7 percent... Read More

Rockies second baseman went 4-for-4 with a double, two runs scored, two RBIs, a walk and a stolen base on Friday against the Giants. This comes just a day after Colorado's keystone man went 4-for-5, and just like that he's hitting .299 after his average sat in the .270s only two days ago. Of course,... Read More

Rockies shortstop Trevor Story entered the game with two outs and nobody on to pinch-hit for starter Antonio Senzatela -- a clear "swing for the fences" scenario -- and boy, did he connect. The sophomore gave a two-seamer a ride over the center-field wall for his ninth round-tripper of the year, though it was just... Read More

Rockies right-hander Antonio Senzatela won after giving up five runs on six hits (three homers) and one walk with six strikeouts over six innings on Friday against the Giants. The rookie threw 50 of his 86 pitches for strikes on the day, though the three round-trippers signal that a few of them caught way too... Read More

Colorado Rockies catcher Tom Murphy, who has missed all of the 2017 season to date, has been activated by Colorado and is starting on Thursday night. He'll be batting eighth after torching Triple-A on his rehab assignment, hitting one homer and knocking in seven alongside a .414/.419/.724 slash line in 31 plate appearances. The powerful... Read More

Colorado Rockies right-hander Jon Gray, who has been out since mid-April with a stress fracture in his foot, made an outstanding return to the mound on Wednesday. The 25-year-old toed the rubber for Class-A Advanced Lancester and delivered four shutout frames in which he scattered four hits and a walk alongside five strikeouts. He sat... Read More

Colorado Rockies outfielder Raimel Tapia went 4-for-4 with a double and three runs scored on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Read More

Colorado Rockies right-hander German Marquez won after allowing one run on four hits and one walk with two strikeouts over five solid innings on Wednesday against the Pirates. The rookie threw 52 of his 83 pitches for strikes and now sits at 5-3 with a 4.19 ERA through his first 10 Major League starts. His... Read More

followed up his impressive debut by You know the deal by now: You need pitchers, I need to gab. It’s Week 11 and we’re just two weeks away from the season’s halfway point, meaning existential crises are likely approaching an all-time high. Ideally, you can use this as supreme leverage against other owners in other... Read More

Colorado Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra may not possess as optimistic a prognosis as once thought by the club. The fleet-footed 30-year-old has been on the 10-day disabled list with a strained quadriceps suffered on a stolen base attempt, and it was thought he'd only miss two weeks after his initial rundown, but now manager Bud...
