Week 8 Starts & Sits - All Starting Pitcher Matchups

Starting Pitcher Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 8

As regular readers may already be aware, in addition to this and my other weekly columns, I manage RotoBaller's Waiver Wire List. During the construction of this week's edition, it hit me: We're at the point of the season where the number of quality pitchers on the waiver wire is at one of its lowest... Read More

The Cut List (Week 8) - Time to Let Go?

May is half over. That's scarcely believable, but it's true. Much more believable but equally true: there are plenty of players that should be axed. April showers can't bring May flowers for everyone, and some players even got that proverb mixed up: they are following up April flowers with damp May production. This analogy is... Read More

The Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 8

As important as it is to be active on the waiver wire, snagging that next hot bat or pitcher on a roll before anyone else can, let's be honest--there are only so many roster spots. That's why your watch list is just as important as your waiver wire activity, and perhaps even more so. Throughout... Read More

Closers and Saves Report - Week 7 Waiver Wire

Let's talk about a Crazy Little Thing Called Saves. (Count it ✔) The Braves might have accidentally stumbled into one of the best closers in baseball. The Twins and Mariners continue to play the messy bullpen game, but it looks like maybe the Rays are settling into some kind of routine? The top two relievers in... Read More

Week 7 Starts & Sits - All Starting Pitcher Matchups

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 7)

Another week, another whack of promotions from the Top 30 list. In his eighth pro season, outfielder Harold Ramirez finally earned a shot with the last-place Marlins after hitting .355 in 31 Triple-A games. The Indians have finally turned to Oscar Mercado for help with their beleaguered outfield. With Collin McHugh struggling to a 6.37 ERA... Read More

If you missed it, the Brewers called up their top prospect Tuesday morning -- hitting prodigy and second baseman Keston Hiura -- to make his major league debut this week.

Streaming Pitchers To Fill The Void in 2019

To say that the starting pitcher position has been underwhelming to start the year is an understatement. What was hoped to be a strength for many teams has yet to come to fruition. Part of the reason is that starters haven’t been as effective as desired. That frustration will potentially get rectified once the weather... Read More

The Cut List (Week 7) - Time to Let Go?

The 2019 season is now one-fifth over for every team in MLB, and one-quarter over for some. By the end of the month in just under three weeks time, it'll be one-third finished. If you've hung on to a certain player in a certain roto league, depending on how often you played or benched them,... Read More

Sauceda's Slants - Six Hitters to Buy for Today's Environment

Pitching days can be pure euphoria — firing up the games to watch your pitchers (hopefully) mow down the opposing team for several innings. Catching one of your hitters’ at-bats just doesn’t create that same lasting feeling. Or, at least that’s what I used to say. Nowadays, I find myself bracing for dear life whenever... Read More

H2H Category Streamers - Week 7 Waiver Wire

There are plenty of strategies that fantasy managers explore in hopes to get an advantage over their opponent. Heavy lineup, heavy starting pitchers, no catcher, all (or mostly) reliever staff, no reliever staff, etc. Even if you play a balanced lineup, injuries can cause holes. A few weeks without a key player won’t kill a... Read More

Two-Start Pitcher Streamers: Week 7

Well, seven weeks in and I'm already struggling to come up with a decent intro. I'm calling a mulligan on the intro this week and let's just get into the recap of the last two weeks. Julio Teheran is the winner in Week 5 despite going 0-1 in his two starts. After allowing four runs... Read More

Closers and Saves Report - Week 6 Waiver Wire

Some pretty important moving and shaking went on this week in the bullpens across the league. Craig Kimbrel is still looking for somebody to love him (Queen reference in intro: ✔), and I'm still recommending anyone holding him in fantasy leagues without an NA spot lets him go. Thought it would be good to get... Read More

Pablo Lopez, Miami's Other Breakout Starter

Miami Marlins right-hander Pablo Lopez quietly dominated the Braves on Sunday, tossing six scoreless innings with one walk and six strikeouts. That was his second scoreless outing in his last three appearances, and it lowered his season ERA to 4.03 - along with a 1.08 WHIP and a 25% strikeout rate. Lopez's 4.03 ERA, even... Read More

Sauceda's Slants - Is Carlos Rodon McCullers-ing?

Maybe this isn’t the best time to write this. He just gave up eight earned runs (ER) in a wild game at home against the Detroit Tigers, a team that currently ranks 27th in runs per game and 25th by weighted on-base average (wOBA). Or maybe that makes this the perfect time to write this, because... Read More
