Sale Price is High but Makes BoSox Front Runners

Posted by on Dec 9, 2016 in 2017 Fantasy Baseball | Comments Off on Sale Price is High but Makes BoSox Front Runners

When you think of baseball, about the last thing you think of is the month of December.  But, in many ways, December just might be the most interesting, and the most important, months of the year in determining the future of baseball’s top teams. If the Boston Red Sox weren’t part of your World Series thinking prior to baseball’s Winter Meetings, they likely are now.  In a blockbuster deal, the Sox acquired left-hander Chris Sale from the Chicago White Sox for Yoan Moncada and three top prospects–minor league right-handed pitchers Michael Kopech and Victor Diaz and outfielder Luis Alexander Basabe.  The price for Sale was high as Boston needed to depart with power hitting Cuban infielder Moncada.  Moncada had a strong year at Single-A and Double-A and was the top-ranked prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America at...

Hot Stove Brings Hot Deals to Pitchers

Posted by on Dec 13, 2015 in 2016 Fantasy Baseball | Comments Off on Hot Stove Brings Hot Deals to Pitchers

  There’s no doubt about it.  David Price is a special pitcher.  A very special pitcher. So, when Price signed a 7 year, $217 million deal with the Red Sox, most baseball fans were only mildly shocked.  After all, Price’s price as a free agent was, well, priceless.  And, Boston could certainly afford the ace.  And, if Price continues to be as good as we all think, he can opt out in 2018 if $31 million per year isn’t enough to toss a baseball. Zack Greinke was another one with a stratospheric contract, but one that we all expected to happen.  Most of us, however, just didn’t expect the talented 32-year-old with the movie star looks to end up in Arizona–a team not known to play in the highest levels of free agency. The one that did shock most...

Let’s play ball: creating the perfect sports lover’s man cave

Posted by on May 30, 2015 in Baseball | Comments Off on Let’s play ball: creating the perfect sports lover’s man cave

Let’s face it: if you love sports and your other half doesn’t, life can be tough. It’s tough on her because she’s sick of having her space taken over by you and your friends, sick of the noise and the lingering smell of fast food and beer. It’s tough on you because even when she’s polite about it, you know she’s annoyed and you can’t quite relax with that stress in the house. You want to have fun but you don’t want to damage your relationship. This is when you need a man cave. Sitting and sprawling In the perfect man cave, relaxation is something you can take for granted. This means you need really comfortable seating – a giant couch, beanbags you can move around to suit your social activities, and a hammock for dozing in. Reclining sofas...

Cardinals’ Jhonny Peralta Cleaning Up

Posted by on Apr 22, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Cardinals’ Jhonny Peralta Cleaning Up

Though the rest of his team might be struggling to take advantage of the opportunities when they come, one Cardinal player has been coming up big when his team needs him most. Jhonny Peralta began Opening Night in a cleanup role playing against the Cubs’ Jon Lester, where he didn’t manage to produce despite runners in a scoring position at his first three times at bat. Yet he’s managed to reverse the trend during the last four games as he’s been batting during the fifth spot, managing to hit a perfect 3 of 3 with runners in position to score. This doesn’t even count the two-run game-tying home run in Sunday’s eighth inning at Cincinnati, which set things up for Matt Carpenter’s game-winner three innings later, bringing things to a 7-5 series win. Peralta almost managed to set off...

Royals Have Unfair Advantage in Game 7

Posted by on Oct 29, 2014 in Baseball News | Comments Off on Royals Have Unfair Advantage in Game 7

It just doesn’t seem right to me. The San Francisco Giants are at a disadvantage for tonight’s 7th game of the 2014 World Series.  Why?  Because it’s being played in Kansas City: San Francisco Giants at Kansas City Royals. This is just one of those things that doesn’t make sense to me that the All-Star Game decides home field advantage for the World Series.  Sure, I get it.  There was a stupid tie in 2002 at Miller Park and then Commissioner Bud Selig came up with the idea of making the game count.  Sure, it counts for about half of the teams that feel that they have a legitimate chance to be in the World Series at the season’s midway point. But, it’s gone too far in my opinion.  An exhibition game should not decide home field advantage in...
