We'll take a look at five pitchers who toed the rubber on Monday. What is the outlook of this five-some – Bedard, Cain, Capuano, Diamond and Tillman – the rest of the way? We'll then touch on two bullpen arms that are dominating – Street and Betancourt – before detailing a couple of other arms that are headed in opposite directions (Colon and Wilson). Don't worry fans of offense, we've also got a breakdown of Cespedes, LaHair and Rutledge for you.
If Albert Pujols struggled, and he did, the brainiacs among you remained patient knowing things would turn around. His track record of excellence dictated it. If you owned Mark Teixeira you remained patient knowing full well that his production seemingly always improves as the season moves forward. You've been rewarded for your patience. However, what do you do if a player doesn't have a track record like these two? What do you do if a player is coming back off an injury? What do you do if a player is aging or inexplicably unable to perform of late? Should you be panicking or should you hold fast with said players?
Yes, it's true, the regular season of football is over, so now is the time to start focusing on the diamond. You may barely be over your New Year's Eve hangover, I know the seven Long Island's I pulled back on are still affecting my vision, but it's time to get to breaking down the 2012 fantasy baseball season. To do that I'll take a sweep around the landscape of the game and give some thoughts on the major players that have switched teams this offseason either by trade or through free agent signings. Did you overlook any of the moves due to drinking, lack of interest, or your intense focus on the fantasy football season?
Welcome back to another edition of the Tuesday Top Ten list of relevant and newsworthy fantasy baseball stories. After making a triumphant return last week, your appetite has been whetted again to the point where you need your weekly dose. Now, without further adieu, here is the Tuesday Top Ten fantasy baseball headlines for August 2, 2011.
Happy Friday everyone as we are in the dead center of both the NFL free agency and closing in on the Major League Baseball trading deadline, it has never been more fun to be a fan of team sports here in America, and we have you covered like a blanket here at Fantasy Alarm. The fantasy baseball news comes in fast and furious as another superstar player that no one pays attention to was dealt to a World Series contender, a pitcher that no one should believe in finally came off the DL, and one that perhaps we forgot about is trying to get back into the fantasy player's mind. A first baseman in Kansas City is red hot, as is a second baseman in Atlanta that many wrote off. I know you are all enjoying your weekend, but take a few minutes out to enjoy Rounding The Bases.
Happy Hump Day to all of you fantasy baseball players as we creep ever closer to the Midsummer's Classic. As if the Yankees haven't been good enough, we will give you good news on two of their starting pitchers. We have a couple of rookies who are totally living up to expectations, as well as a starting pitcher who lived up to my expectations by going on the Disabled LIst. Of course don't miss out on my pitch streamer pick for Friday and check out the results of the past couple of days. It is still not too late to use the Fantasy Alarm service to maintain your rosters on a daily basis as we will send player news right to your email inbox or to your cell phone via text message. Check out the home page to lear more, but for now enjoy Rounding The Bases.
Happy Hump Day as another week of fantasy baseball has reached its midpoint, and as always there is a ton going on. We have a struggling superstar who seems to be finally righting the ship, while an elite middle infielder has still yet to find his way. A stud pitcher seems to have turned the corner, while an oft injured hurler throws himself a great outing. We have a catcher coming out of nowhere all of a sudden, a speedster flying under the radar, and a pitcher just returning from the minors who looked good, and so much more on Wednesday's edition of 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.
The longer than usual opening matchups in your fantasy baseball leagues have finally come to a close and hopefully you were on the winning side. Tonight, we continue to new format of the article where we feature some of the top performers of the night and then chronicle the news below. I am looking for some feedback on this change whether you all think this is a good move. Tonight, we mention some guys who are playing over their heads, a superstar off to a slow start, and a young phenom coming into his own. On the pitching side there is a couple of guys under the radar and why Fernando Rodney got the save tonight.
