Posted by on Sep 21, 2012 in Baseball | 0 comments

Who cares about the Yankees versus the Red Sox? The rivalry between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs extends back at least 100 years. Here are some reasons why baseball’s top rivalry isn’t on the East or West coast, it is smack dab in the heart of America. Historic franchises The Cardinals and Cubs, in one form or another, have been around since as far back as the 1870s. The Cubs currently hold a slight edge in the history of this series that includes over 2,000 total games. They have now been joined for many years as division rivals, practically down the street from one another. Route 66/I-55 Touted each year as the Route 66 or I-55 Series, the Cardinals and Cubs are separated by a mere 300 miles. Fans of each team flock to the other’s...

Fantasy Baseball Dugout is proud to have one of the six voting spots in Yardbarker’s Blogger Poll for MLB Power Rankings 2010. In addition to providing our insight on ranking each MLB team 1-30, we also monitor the NL East each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 21. It’s been about 10 weeks or so since we last published our poll. At the time, the Yankees had just taken over the Rays as the top team on the list. Due to going 7-3 in their last 10 games and seeing how they’ve once again tied the Yanks atop the AL East, the Rays once again sit atop our power rankings. In other major AL East news, the Orioles finally moved out of the cellar in our power rankings…...

Week 10 MLB Power Rankings

Fantasy Baseball Dugout is proud to have one of the six voting spots in Yardbarker’s Blogger Poll for MLB Power Rankings 2010. In addition to providing our insight on ranking each MLB team 1-30, we also monitor the NL East each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 10. De Rays remain at no. 1, but Da Yanks are closer to taking over that top spot then than they have been in weeks. Duh Twins dropped a couple spots in my book as teams like the Padres (up six this week) and Red Sox (up two) continue to win at a more consistent clip. As the Phillies plummet towards .500, they continue to fall in the rankings. The Cardinals also took a major drop in the rankings this week....

Week 11 Fantasy Baseball Two Start Pitchers

Posted by on Jun 13, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Are you two-start pitcher streaming? If not, you’re likely missing out on a great opportunity to increase your weekly strikeout total, win total, log more innings pitched, and potentially lower your team ERA and WHIP in head to head leagues that allow daily lineup changes. Some leagues don’t allow such activity by limiting the number of player adds you can make each week. However, if you can find a loophole in your league settings and add/drop pitchers all season long – you’re going to have a great chance to win the whole thing come September! For the third consecutive season, we will be tracking two start pitchers to make sure you always win your pitching categories. That way, if Zack Greinke continues to need to carry a 6.59 ERA into the month of July – you’re not screwed. Below...

Week 8 MLB Power Rankings

Fantasy Baseball Dugout is proud to have one of the six voting spots in Yardbarker’s Blogger Poll for MLB Power Rankings 2010. In addition to providing our insight on ranking each MLB team 1-30, we also monitor the NL East each week and drop a little insight on each team. See below for our rankings for MLB Week 8. Since it is our responsibility to provide analysis of each NL East team, I’ve sprinkled that throughout the post below, too. So, after moving the Phillies into the top 2 last week, they promptly forgot how to score runs for an entire 7-day stretch and plummeted in this week’s rankings – down five spots to no. 7. Therefore, De Rays and Da Yanks are back in the top 2 spots, and the Twins have entered the top 3. Otherwise, there...
