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

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 6

Baseball is neither fair nor consistent, this much we all know. It is however, predictable. Not in the sense that we know what will happen with each player taking each individual AB, but in the sense that based on the complete picture of performance formed by a player's peripheral figures, we can typically feel a...

Cheap Steals, Where Art Thou?

The topic of stolen bases can elicit a wide variety of opinions. To some, it is viewed as a trivial and useless category. To others, it is the mountain bypass through which you can catapult past idle teams toward the top of the standings. Regardless of your stance, the truth is that stolen bases have... Read More

Shortstop - The Under-Appreciated Glamour Boys of '19

Shortstop has long been a position comprised of the nobles and the bastards. People would flock towards the highborn and turn a frigidly cold shoulder to anyone else.

Waiver Wire Strategy - Recycling Post-Hype Draft Sleepers

Fantasy baseball is very much a “what have you done for me lately” environment. If players are playing poorly, fantasy managers will give up on them.

Starting Pitcher Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 2

Being only a week and a half into the season, drastic measures are to be avoided.
