The Yankees have a few holes to fill, and instead of making big a big splash like they used to, names like Rivera and Hafner are ruling the day. The Padres continue to add arms to their stable, most recently Freddy Garcia, but it's Tim Stauffer who will be garnering most of the attention in this piece. The Angels brought in a guy to work the 9th inning this year that didn't throw a single big league pitch last season even though they already have a guy who appears to be a fella who can handle 9th inning duties if he's called upon. All of that plus the plight of Michael Bourn (where will he sign), Michael Pineda (when will he be healthy) and Kelly Johnson (should you pay attention on draft day to the newest Ray).
Some days you wake up with a plan. Other days you roll out of bed and have a hard time making it to the shower. I had one of those mornings today, so I'm not going to fight it, I'm just going to plow ahead in a haphazard manner and see what kind of trouble I can get into. How does that sound? I'll give some thoughts on A.J. Burnett and the Orioles' bullpen while also getting straight jiggy wit it and just randomly letting the fur fly. And yes, I have no idea what that means either.
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.
Tonight's article is capped with a double dose of bad news for players on either end of the country and either end of the ball game as a starter in New York and a closer in Los Angeles both have bad news attached to their player profiles. Staying at the back end of the bullpen, there was not bad news, but bad production in the Lone Star State, and then a starter in the midwest gets a raw deal again. We have a report on a high end pitcher returning from injury and one of the hottest hitters in baseball could be north of the border. We look at this and so much more in this version of Rounding The Bases.
Happy Saturday to you all as another weekend of fantasy baseball is upon us. Tonight we have some injury news on some of the biggest names in the game, as well as a first round fantasy pick riding the pine on Saturday. There is talk of some pitching in Boston and in the Bronx, as well as speculating on how long this hot streak in Cleveland will last. Is it all for real? Speaking of for real, what about this guy in Kansas City that is suddenly lighting it up right when we all gave up hope on him?
