Welcome to the third installment of the Tuesday Top Ten where I will be presenting you with ten of the most newsworthy events in all of baseball, both real and fantasy. Each item will have some general information and then a short analysis of the potential fantasy impact. As you already know, the ranking of the list is completely subjective based on my own arbitrary criteria. So without further adieu, let's get a drumroll from Paul Shaffer and roll out the Tuesday Top Ten list for May 17, 2011.
Welcome back to the second installment of the Tuesday Top Ten. If you are a fan of alliteration, then you should really enjoy that title. If you do not know what alliteration is, then do yourself a favor and look it up. Since it is Tuesday, I will be ranking the ten most newsworthy fantasy baseball events and stories for you in an order that is purely based on my own subjective criteria. Without further adieu, here is your Tuesday Top Ten:
According to reliable sources such as the internet and high school students, Tuesday is the least popular day of the week. In an effort to bring some respect, credibility and entertainment back to Tuesdays, I will be paying homage to David Letterman and provide a weekly Top 10 list for newsworthy fantasy baseball events that take place. Each event will have a brief description including what, if any, impact it has on fantasy baseball. The ranking is completely subjective so do not even think of challenging my authority. In fact, in the words of Eric Cartman, you will respect my authority! Without further adieu, here is the debut of the new Tuesday Top Ten List (as of 10:15 PM EST):
Plenty to talk about tonight as we begin week 3 of the fantasy baseball season in style. Tonight we saw some big name players go down with injuries, a couple big league performances from part time players and a young starting pitcher who just had to have some T-shirts from his local Macy's department store. We're also going to give out some updates on guys who have been on the disabled list all season and let you know what you can expect of them in the coming weeks. So let's get it on with the latest edition of Rounding The Bases...
Although his season has been littered with a few nagging injuries, Brad Lidge is definitely having a fairly solid season. He converted his 19th game of the year with just five blown and the rest of his numbers are a huge improvement from 2009. LIdge had an ERA over 7.00 last season, and while it still isn't great he has it down to 3.57 in 2010. His strikeouts are on a better rate and he isn't walking nearly as many batters. I am not saying that he will be an elite closer next year, but Lidge should be a little more trustworthy in 2011.
