Do Baseball Fans Have Skin in the Game?

Posted by on Oct 1, 2014 in Promotional Considerations | Comments Off on Do Baseball Fans Have Skin in the Game?

Sluggers Wanted at Caesars Online Casino! Even though it was 25 years ago, die-hard baseball fans likely remember when Pete Rose was banned for life because of his gambling.  This decision upset many baseball fans and some even say that it is time to lift this seemingly archaic ban.  Unfortunately, the MLB is known for their strict anti-gambling laws that many believe are unfair. Take A-Rod as a case in point.  In light of what is currently going on...

Best Way to Prevent Late Season Lopsided Trades

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in Promotional Considerations | Comments Off on Best Way to Prevent Late Season Lopsided Trades

The trading deadline has passed in MLB, but that often doesn’t stop the trading from happening in fantasy baseball.  In fact, from my experience, the trading deadline in MLB is the last day of July, but in many fantasy baseball leagues, you can make trades right up until the last day of August.  ESPN’s Standard Leagues allow trading through August 8.  After that, all you can do is move players up and down from your minor league squads. Many...

Trading Bases: From Stocks and Shares to Bats and Balls

Posted by on Aug 10, 2014 in Promotional Considerations | Comments Off on Trading Bases: From Stocks and Shares to Bats and Balls

At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking trading on Wall Street and professional gambling were essentially the same thing. Comparisons are easy to come by and speculatively buying and selling stocks based on the prediction that the price will either go up or down is, in some ways gambling, albeit on a different playing field. Many highly successful traders started out as professional gamblers and it’s not uncommon to see world famous traders such as Seth Klarman...

Baesball’s Hottest Wives Nominee: Jill Davis

Posted by on Apr 27, 2014 in Hottest Baseball Wives | Comments Off on Baesball’s Hottest Wives Nominee: Jill Davis

Gorgeous Jill (Meyer) Davis is the wife of Baltimore Orioles’ slugger Chris Davis. Jill is a former Oklahoma Sooners cheerleader and stands by her man.  She recently went on the Twittersphere to defend her man against all of those Yankee fans that were accusing Crush of using PED’s.     And, if you’ve had Chris Davis on your fantasy baseball team last year, you enjoyed a monster season with 53 round trippers!  Looks like 53 homeruns isn’t the only...

Why I Hate Baseball’s Replay Challenge Rule

Posted by on Apr 19, 2014 in 2014 Fantasy Baseball | Comments Off on Why I Hate Baseball’s Replay Challenge Rule

It’s the biggest change in baseball since the designated hitter first debuted on April 6, 1973 and since the first night game was played May 24, 1935. It’s baseball’s new replay challenge rule and, while generally a move in the right direction, the way it’s currently used is quite simply, ludicrous.   Replay = Longer Games Games are already long and thanks to the replay challenge rule, games are only getting longer; games are actually 7 minutes longer this...

An American in Baseball-Crazed Cuba A friend of mine recently made a trip to Havana in part to see a professional baseball game, but he got the surprise of his life when the local Cubans asked him to play in their baseball game the next day.  This is Anthony’s recap of that game and the next day when he got a chance to play the game he loves with other people that love the game of baseball.  He asked...

Better Spend a lot of Time in the Batting Cage Musicians will tell you that there’s only one way to make it to Carnegie Hall…practice, practice, practice. Major League Baseball players would likely have the same thing to say when it comes to playing baseball at a high level.  There’s only one way to get there and that is to practice, practice, practice. But, baseball, unlike a sport like bowling or basketball, requires you to have somebody else with...

Slay Puts an End to the Friendly World Series Wager St. Louis mayor Francis Slay is quick to say that he’s betting at sports bookmaker bwin on this year’s World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Betting on the World Series has been a long standing tradition among mayors.  Boston Mayor Tom Menino was certainly game for a little Fall Classic action, but Slay wanted nothing to do with it. “No mayoral sports bets this post-season. That frees up...

Is Billy Hamilton a Wise September Call Up? Every now and then, a player comes along that really captures the attention of fantasy baseball players.  Often, that’s because he has put up some gaudy minor league statistics. Billy Hamilton is such a player.  The Cincinnati Reds September call-up made the trip to The Show, because he did one thing really well: steal bases.  Last year, in fact, Hamilton stole 155 bases in just 132 games!  What are the odds...
