Miami Massacre

Two weeks ago, the Florida Marlins sent seemingly every starter it had on the roster to the Toronto Blue Jays in a blockbuster trade for a package of prospects that has left many Marlins fans wondering what has happened to this franchise that was going to be an annual contender thanks to the snappy new stadium in the Little Havana section of Miami.  Commissioner Bud Selig approved the trade that sent Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, John Buck, and Emilio Bonifacio to Toronto for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechevaria, Jeff Mathis, and Henderson Alvarez and a bunch of guys you’ve probably never heard of. What the Marlins Got in the Blue Jays Trade Escobar, 30, will make $5 million next year.  He struggled at the plate last season with a .253 batting average and 8 homers in 608 AB’s. ...

Posted by on Sep 11, 2012 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Fantasy baseball managers who have been riding Stephen Strasburg all season must now enter their playoffs without their ace starter who has been shelved for the rest of the season based on the controversial innings count.  Could this have been avoided if the Nationals had controlled his early season innings like the Braves did with Kris Medlen? It’s playoff time for many of you in fantasy baseball and you’ve been riding Stephen Strasburg all year.  That’s the Stephen Strasburg who you believed in at the beginning of the season after coming off of Tommy John surgery. And, your belief in Strasburg has paid off.   His stats include197 strikeouts in 159.1 innings.  A 15-6 record with a 3.16 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on a very good Washington Nationals team that has run to the top of the National League East...

Fantasy Stretch Run Pickup: Trevor Bauer

Posted by on Aug 23, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Sleepers, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Like many fantasy baseball sites, we’ve been talking about Trevor Bauer of the Diamondbacks for some time now.  Now, it looks like Bauer will get another chance to show the electric stuff that everybody has been talking about. Bauer had a rude welcome to the MLB.  In 16.1 IP’s, he walked too many (14) and had an ERA above 6.  The WHIP was 1.65 before getting demoted on July 17.  But, Bauer’s move to the MLB was simply too quick for the 21-year-old.  Bauer pitched only 8 games at Triple-A Reno before the D-Backs came calling.  And, Bauer was struggling with a groin injury during his abbreviated 4 starts in Arizona. Bauer’s resume is impressive.  He was the third pick in the draft last year.  He won the Golden Spikes award as the best player in college baseball while...
