Hey, thanks. It’s good to be back. In case you haven’t noticed, the powers-that-be here at Fantasy Alarm have instructed me to take a little time for myself on days with a short slate of games and save the recaps for days that are a little more chock-full of news and excitement. Not that Monday didn’t have its fair share of news and excitement, but look at how much we have to choose from on Tuesday. There were 33 home runs hit with three multi-homer efforts, 21 bases stolen, five winning starting pitchers who went six or more innings and recorded shutouts, four double-digit strikeout performances and eight, yes eight, blown saves. A big day? I’d say so. Plenty of highs, plenty of lows and a whole lot of stuff in between.
It's been two weeks, but everyone loves to panic. It's in our nature. Something goes wrong, and we immediately start looking for a quick fix (think of all the weight loss pills out there when the best course of action would just be to eat well and exercise). Fantasy baseball is no different and the start to the season has led to a whole lot of consternation over names like Tim Lincecum, Francisco Liriano, Johan Santana and Mark Melancon. I'll address all of those arms. I'll then wrap the piece up by focusing on something near and dear to me – numbers. What numbers have stood out to me in the early going? Read on to find out.
It is another weekend in fantasy baseball, and as always there is plenty of action going on from coast to coast. As far as big fantasy news, there is another pretty serious prospect coming to the majors, but other than that it is a bit of a light night. We have news of a big name starting pitcher that has hit the disabled list, a lower name that has already thrown his second shutout of the season, and two more that are on a nice roll. We have a catcher that you shouldn't fall in love with, while we talk about an outfielder that you should. It is time for the weekend, so crack a cold one and enjoy Rounding The Bases.
Baseball season is back in full swing, and unfortunately the injury bug continues to bite some of the games best young players. There is word of a lasting injury in Tampa Bay, while the one in Pittsburgh appears to be no big deal. Miguel Cabrera was seeing double at Yankee Stadium, and I don't mean he was at Foley's, and one of the game's best closers was back on the mound. There's more news around the Majors as well as we roll into the first full week of the season. Most importantly, don't forget to sign up for the Fantasy Alarm service to have these updates sent directly to your inbox or cell phone so you know that guys on your team are in or out of the lineup every day.
