Pollock (elbow) out at least... Read More

Xander Bogaerts Hits Grand Slam

Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts put the White Sox away with a grand slam in the eighth inning to go ahead 9-2.

Tyler Glasnow Goes Seven Innings In Sixth Win

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow earned his sixth win Friday night over the Orioles. He threw seven shutout innings, striking out eight, walking none and allowing three hits.

Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.
