So it’s like that again, huh? Just the third day of the 2013 MLB season and we’re already staring at a perfect game? Well…..almost. Pretty damn close as Yu Darvish manhandled the Astros lineup and came just one out away from throwing baseball’s 24th perfect game and fourth in less than a full calendar year.
With six shutouts, four teams held to just one run and overall, 17 of 30 teams being held to three runs or fewer, it makes for a pretty quick recap article. It happens sometime. What can you do? Not every day can be filled with fireworks. It does make for some nice pitching highlights overall, which we’ll get to, but rather than try to create something out of…well, literally nothing…we’ll just get on with the regular highlights. I mean, we could sit here and discuss the dissension within the Red Sox organization, but how many people really enjoy talking about what a huge a-hole Bobby Valentine is and how many times can you actually say it? He does it enough with both his words and his actions. So without further ado, let’s just hit the highlights.
Well now I don’t mean to slight you here on the recap after a day off, but spending the night at the Giants/Astros game sort of takes away from your ability to watch multiple games simultaneously. I kept up with everything thanks to some nerdiness and a smart phone, but you know it’s just not the same. But you didn’t come here for excuses. You came here for some fantasy baseball information and gosh darn it, that’s what you’re gonna get. So screw the excuses and let’s just get to it.
Why does it not surprise me? In so many ways, too. Why does it not surprise me one bit. I’ve spent so much of this week having to discuss Mets pitching, that this was just inevitable, I guess. Johan Santana threw a complete-game shutout against the Padres last Saturday, Dillon Gee has a 1.98 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 13.2 innings over his last two starts, and R.A. Dickey has killed it in his last two outings, going 2-0 with a 0.63 ERA and 21 strikeouts. The three of them have been absolutely masterful, helping both their ballclub and fantasy owners from all over. And by “all over” I mean the greater Flushing area, because who, outside of the die-hard Mets fans living in Queens, would have these guys on their fantasy roster. I mean, really.
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!
Another week is in the books in the 2011 fantasy baseball season, and the news just never stops. The heat might have finally broken here in the Northeast, but divisional races are still heating up, and likely so are the standings in your fantasy leagues. We have news about an injured Mets' star that actually is ending in good news, a pitcher in the Bronx who spun a good tale today, and a closer in Philly who is looking good for now. We have news on a number of prospects, some good, some not so good, and some doing some things for the first time. Finally, we have news on an old train who seems to have finally found a destination spot, and that could be on your fantasy teams as we roll in tonight's version of Rounding The Bases.
It is the start of the fourth month of the fantasy baseball schedule and of course there is plenty to talk about on a Friday night. One of the leagues closers has been put on the shelf, while a fill in is showing his worth. A Cardinal is really hitting well, while we have a strange occurrence in Chicago. A newly acquired player in Colorado belts out his first for the team, and we also have pitching news from all over the map. So, enjoy whatever it is you are doing tonight and soak in all that is Rounding The Bases.
It is another glorious weekend in the world of fantasy baseball as we are all trying to make our push to the top of the standings or trying to stay there. Tonight there is news on the best player in baseball and how he is coming out of his early season doldrums, we talk about the guy who might have the best stats to start the season and what you should do with him going forward, and a lot on starting pitchers and whether they are worth holding on to, dropping, or trying to trade for. We finish with two struggling hitters and I will tell you why I still really believe in one, while I wouldn't even roster the other. All of this and so much more in tonight's edition of Rounding The Bases.
It is another weekend in the world of fantasy baseball, and as it seems like every day, there is more injury news on Friday, some more significant than others. There is also news about a guy who seemed like he would be a big major league player this year who was sent to the farm yet again. We have two young sluggers who are just returning from injury, and an aging veteran who is going out on the DL yet again. We have a second year player who is serving notice to fantasy owners, and a second year pitcher who can't buy a break. Remember to sign up for the Fantasy Alarm service to be sure that you never start a benched player again and be sure to stay right here for all of the best content on Fantasy Alarm.
Welcome to the start of Week 5 of the fantasy baseball season, and I can't believe we are this deep into the season already. We have the news on two returns from injury of some of the games best young players, one hitter and one pitcher. One will be right away, while the other will be in time for the weekend. Other than that we have news of a young slugger starting to go on a tear, a young catcher giving us a daily double, and a young pitcher who is starting to turn the corner. I tell you which two old Yankees are bound to fall apart, and which player with diarrhea ruined his fantasy owners weekends. If that isn't enough for you, I don't know what is so enjoy today's version of Rounding The Bases.
