In 1983 Rickey Henderson ran his way to 130 steals for the Athletics, a modern day baseball record (Hugh Nicol actually stole 138 bases in 1887 for the Cincinnati Red Stockings). Others of the modern era have hit triple-digits – Lou Brock, Vince Coleman Maury Wills – but those just aren't numbers we see anymore. Nowadays we're lucky to find guys who steal half as many bags. So why is it that you hear so many people in the fantasy game say 'I don't worry about steals early, I can find them late.' Is that an accurate statement? How should you look at steals for the coming season, and which players should you consider targeting?
Welcome to the very special Earthquake Edition of the Tuesday Top Ten. If you didn’t hear the news, most of the east coast and regions out to Ohio experienced a 5.9 earthquake this afternoon at 1:51 PM. Clearly the reason for this is the fact that the Oakland A’s are in New York tonight to play the Yankees. Apparently they brought the San Andreas Fault with them on their charter plane. As a forewarning, there are absolutely no earthquake jokes or puns contained in this edition of the Top Ten. I thought it would be in poor taste to mock or defame the memory of John Tenta, otherwise known as Earthquake in the WWF. Remember when he squashed Jake Roberts’ snake and then made python burgers out of its remains? Now, without further adieu, here is this week’s edition of the Tuesday Top Ten fantasy baseball headlines for August 23, 2011.
Happy Weekend everyone in Fantasy Baseball Land! Tonight we have another fresh batch of news and observations from the day in Major League Baseball. There are a couple of guys who have been helping your team throughout the season that were injured tonight, and another one who missed a day after being plunked by a pitch yesterday. I take a moment to celebrate someone's rookie season, and give you an option if you are looking for stolen bases down the stretch. We have a guy who pitched great tonight that I absolutely trash on, while another who was terrible I actually really like for next year. I know you are salivating just waiting to read, so without further adieu, I give you Rounding The Bases!
