There was not a lot of offense around the major leagues today so this version of Rounding The Bases is going to be all about the pitchers. Well, we will discuss two position players, but other than that it is all about the pitchers. We have a couple of bullpens with major questions in them and a lot of starting pitching. We have guys who are on incredible rolls, and others who were just disastrous. But whether they were good or bad, we will tell you what to expect from them in the future and what you should do with them.
It is another exciting night in fantasy baseball as we wish you a happy weekend. The weather has finally started to improve up here in the Northeast and some players are starting to see things in a sunny way. A power hitter who we all questioned is answering us in emphatic fashion, and an also ran pitcher is looking like a Cy Young Award winner. A young pitcher looks impressive this night, while an Asian important disappoints again. One outfielder hits his first home run of the season, while another one just keeps piling up the hits. There is that news and a little bit more on the weekend edition of Rounding The Bases.
It is hard to think of a guy who has had a better day than Ben Zobrist and I will tell you what you should do following this monumental performance. A closer by the bay looks like he might be getting it straight, and speedster in Texas takes off. We have one young pitcher who continues to deal, while another one wins but isn't as impressive. An injury prone superstar keeps it going, while a young hot corner player might be starting a hot streak. It was a shortened schedule on Thursday, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything important so be sure you check out Rounding The Bases.
I hate to kick a guy while he is down, but is it all over for Francisco Liriano? He came into the year with great expectations and he has done nothing but flop on his face and he did so in monumental fashion on Wednesday. Liriano threw 83 pitches in just three innings on his way to giving up seven runs. He did strike out four, but he also walked four in what could only be described as a disaster. I actually had picked up Liriano in a league over the weekend, and I am not ready to jettison him back to free agency just yet, but two or three more starts like this and I will be forced to throw in the towel on him. Try to remain patient, but I can't blame you right now if you can't be.
Tuesday nights are typically reserved for sheer boredom and dreading the following work day. This is not the case my friends while baseball is in season. Reminiscent of hanging out in a hotel room with Charlie Sheen the baseball world was filled with drama and intrigue. This typically bland Tuesday revealed three post hype first baseman who are begging for the fantasy world's attention. We also have an ex Red Sox who is making an improbable run to perfection, not to mention a current Sox player who is baffling his owners after imploding once again. As you wade through the plethora of fantasy news you also come across closers grabbing the job by the horns and ones who might have blown a once in a lifetime opportunity. With all that has happened today in the world of baseball, Tuesday's have become a fantasy owners guilty pleasure.
Happy Monday from your friends at Fantasy Alarm! We have some disturbing news from the Bronx about one of our favorite pitchers coming into the 2011 season, and it looks like it might lead to an extended absence. Tonight I will give you two guys that I absolutely can't stand, and one that I think you need to jump on sooner rather than later. I am declaring myself the leader of a new bandwagon, and also we gloat a little about what appears to be a new closer on the South Side of Chicago.
Week three of fantasy matchups are officially in the books and as usual there is plenty to talk about in the world of fantasy baseball. Another closer in Philadelphia hits the DL, and we will tell you who the hottest pitcher in baseball is, and which one's team is letting him down the worst. There are signs of life from the Captain in the Bronx, and a former MVP has a great weekend coming back from injury.

It was a very interesting day in the majors this Saturday, but it didn't yield a ton of new fantasy news. We had an elite closer go down to an injury, a Japanese pitcher spin an absolute gem and a fantasy sleeper return from the Disabled List. A slugging catcher continues to slug, some pitchers looking very good, while others look horrendous. We even had one who looked badly while pitching well. We also will gab about an outfielder who has gotten my attention and I tell you whether or not you should make a move on him. Don't miss that and so much more in tonight's version of Rounding The Bases.
The skies opened up and postponed three different games today but that didn't damper excitement around the league. Florida was nearly the home for 2011's first no hitter. On this day a key cog of the Metropolitans goes on the DL while a young fire baller, 3000 miles away in Seattle, continues his rookie dominance. As we take you around the league you will get the inside scoop on all that is fantasy baseball.
As we head into the weekend series there is some new news on an injured outfielder and we get the diagnosis on another. A shirt thief pitches well and another returning pitcher deals in Atlanta. Dave Duncan is at it again in St. Louis and a hot start has gone cold. A couple of young sluggers go yard for the first time and the Tribe keep rolling.
