Usually, you see it all in the show business world. A great comedian, a great singer, some fantastic band performs – it’s a phenomenal performance and the crowd goes absolutely nuts. A standing ovation followed up with, what could seem like an hour of straight cheers and applause. Moments like that aren’t necessarily rare, but when they happen, they stand out like a lone, bright star in a pitch black night. You never want to be the guy who follows that. Some comedian before you kills it, the pressure on you to perform up to those standards is ridiculous. One subpar joke and you’re finished. It’s the same with musical performances. If you follow one of those amazing moments, if you’re not perfect, you’re done.
Hello everybody, remember me? That’s right, Hallam is back! I might have taken a few months off, but I was never really out of the fantasy game. I don’t really want to dwell too long on things because none of you really care about the how and the why, all you really care about is fantasy baseball information which I am more than happy to pass out. We are about six weeks into the season, and we can separate the contenders from the pretenders by who can identify who is merely off to a fast start and who is going to help your team all of 2012. It is time to identify players that, if they are on your team, you need to try to capitalize right away and trade them for all they are worth. Those who hold on too long to one month wonders are those who start the season in first place, often end the season in fifth. We here at Fantasy Alarm help to make you someone who finishes in September at the top of the heap.
They say that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and that phrase became a reality for me after yesterday’s post here at Rounding the Bases. For those that didn’t check in or just have serious short-term memory issues, you can either click here and read for yourself or I can sum it up for you right now. I expressed my disappointment with Wednesday’s games, discussing the fact that there was no performance that stood above the rest and made for an exciting fantasy day and certainly was not going to give anyone the Fantasy Beast of the Day honors. Well, I got this email later that day and I thought I would share it with you here…
While remaining patient in fantasy baseball is one of the most difficult things to do, it is also one of the most critical at this time of year. Sitting back and watching underperforming players is ridiculously frustrating, especially if those that aren’t pulling their weight are the ones you were relying on most, and their lack of production has you sitting, if not all the way at the bottom of your standing, at least real close to it. But as we get set to enter the final week of April, your patience with these players is now more important than ever.
We love stars. We fall all over our self to see them perform, trample little kids to get their autographs, and hang their pictures on our walls (come on, you remember your Elle Macpherson Sports Illustrated pictures that adorned your walls). Today I'll give my thoughts on a handful of fellas who have names that might outpace their actual production in 2012.
Happy Labor Day everyone, and as we say goodbye to summer, it is important to remember not to say goodbye to your fantasy baseball team as we roll through the last month of the season. Tonight we have a couple of returning players, one young one that I have all the hopes in the world for to finish the year strongly, the other is an older player that I gave up on long ago and took a lot of grief over my rankings of him before the season started. We have news on a couple of the more exciting young players in the majors, as well as an injury not for the Red Sox. But there is so much more than that as we come into the home stretch of the season so please don't miss Rounding The Bases.
Welcome to the very special Hurricane Irene Edition of the Tuesday Top Ten. Just days after many in the northeast felt the rumble from the earthquake, we were subjected to Hurricane Irene and all of its aftermath. Before you start thinking the end of the world is near because of all these natural disasters, just remember that Adam Dunn and Mark Reynolds both struck out three times since you began reading this article, so all is right in the world again. Now, without further adieu, here is this week’s edition of the Tuesday Top Ten fantasy baseball headlines for August 30, 2011.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor, could you be mine, would you be mine? Hmmmm, why am I singing the Mr. Rogers theme (he was a creepy old guy we used to watch on TV for those of you under 30) to start the Rounding The Bases segment tonight? Well, we at Fantasy Alarm like to think that we are a nice, cozy, comfortable place to get your fantasy sports news. Like what happened in Stephen Strasburg's latest rehab start, or what's wrong with Brian Wilson, David Ortiz, and Josh Hamilton? Let me tell you the story of the news that you need to know from this Wednesday in tonight's edition of Rounding The Bases!
As always a very special thank you to Michael Stein of Fantasy Judgment for pinch hitting for me on Tuesday with his Top Ten Headlines, please be sure to check out his site as well. This is my first August article, and the best thing about baseball and fantasy baseball is that the news never stops no matter what part of the season you are in. Tonight's article is headed by two third basemen, one who might be getting himself in some hot water, and another who had his first hot night of the season. There is injury news as always, one good, one not as good with two guys with a very bright fantasy future. And of course there is some talk of two young prospects recently called to the majors, and not only how they are faring right now, but what you might expect from them going forward. It is time for you to finish up your Hump Day with Rounding The Bases.
