Have Baseball Celebrations Gone Too Far?

Posted by on Sep 12, 2009 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Infielders, MLB Network | 4 comments

If you watched SportsCenter or MLB Network last Sunday night, you saw the celebration by the Milwaukee Brewers after the walk off homerun by Prince Fielder. There was a time when you couldn’t even stop and watch your home run fly out of the park for fear of retaliation by the pitcher. That was known as showing up the pitcher. Today, it appears as though you can do the Brewers’ bowling pin celebration and it’s ok. After all, it’s not just the Brewers. The Yankees have had a lot of practice celebrating game-ending homeruns this season; they’ve done it 13 times! The new celebration in The Bronx is for the game-ending homerun hitter to toss his helmet in the air at home plate and have his teammates fight for it like a bunch of hard-up bridesmaids at a wedding....

Why I Kept DirecTV Even After I Moved

Posted by on Jun 6, 2009 in MLB Network, Promotional Considerations | 0 comments

I don’t break the life/blog wall all that often, but I felt compelled to hop on the blog this morning and chat a little bit about why I avoided switching my television service to Comcast this past November when my family moved from Western PA to Central PA. Where we lived in Western PA, a very mountainous area in the Laurel Highlands, my family had no other option but satellite TV service. Therefore, we were forced to switch from Comcast to DirecTV. Even Dish Network wasn’t available to us in the townhouse community we lived in. I fell in love with DirecTV’s customer service during my time in Western PA as a customer. And with all the controversy between Comcast, the NFL Network, and the Big Ten Network, I also enjoyed the fact that I didn’t have to miss...

World Baseball Classic Fantasy Baseball Cheat Sheet

Posted by on Mar 17, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Tips, MLB Network | 0 comments

Below is a list of the top three MLB hitters and pitchers currently participating in the World Baseball Classic in each standard 5×5 fantasy baseball category. I don’t think anyone knows how to gauge WBC success for either hitters or pitchers. My theory is that there is little benefit for pitchers. If anything, pitching in the WBC is probably detrimental to pitchers because it will likely limit their innings early in the season. There seems to be something to gain for hitters because they are facing quality pitching in a live-game situation. But does these games make them hit better during the season? No clue. As a simple piece of advice, you might want to move hitters up your draft board that are tearing up WBC pitching. You probably shouldn’t do anything with pitchers, however. Due to their pitch...

Places To Play Fantasy Baseball: MLB.com

Posted by on Feb 25, 2009 in Fantasy Baseball Games, Fantasy Baseball Tips, MLB Network | 0 comments

While they aren’t calling it “MLB Open” like they did last year, MLB.com is once again offering free head-to-head fantasy baseball leagues with a $10,000 grand prize in 2009. 2009 fantasy baseball on MLB.com is pretty straight forward: League Sizes: 8-team, 10-team, 12-team Game Format Options: Head-To-Head Points Playoffs: Top 4 Teams / 2 Weeks Multi-Position Eligibility: 10-game Minimum in 2008 or 2009 Roster Freeze: 5 Minutes Before Monday’s Games What’s Different In 2009? Pitcher scoring. MLB.com’s fantasy baseball game is different than most sites that offer free fantasy baseball. Instead of selecting individual pitchers, MLB gives you an entire team’s pitching staff (just like defense/special teams in fantasy football). While this is no different from last season, they have changed the scoring format for pitching staffs in 2009. Each win your staff picks up is worth 3 points,...
