As if there was any doubt as to who was going to eventually win this little war between Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and longtime third baseman Kevin Youkilis, the brewing kettle finally game to a boil on Sunday and Youkilis found himself with a one-way ticket to Chicago. In exchange for RHP Zach Stewart and utility-man Brent Lillibridge, Boston sent Youk and about $5.5M in cash to the AL Central-leading White Sox in a deal that actually works out for everyone. And by everyone, I mean everyone, including the fantasy world. OK, maybe not the guys that own Orlando Hudson, but both of them are probably in last anyway and stopped paying attention to their teams weeks ago. But as far as everyone else in the baseball world goes, this trade was win-win-win.
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.
Happy Saturday everybody, time to sit down and take in another day in fantasy baseball as the standings are likely starting to show the cream of the crop by now. Tonight we have the first talk about the last great prospect in the minor leagues, and a post hype prospect who is trying to stay healthy and figure things out. We have good news on a scary situation in Colorado, and bad news on one of 2011's biggest surprises on the mound. I also give you a couple of sleeper names for pitchers next season, a young man who made his major league debut, and another pitcher who made his debut for his new team. One more day in the fantasy baseball week, and now is a great time to make the appropriate moves to try to steal this week's matchup from your opponent. So sit back, relax, pop a cold one, and enjoy Rounding The Bas
It was a tragic day in fantasy baseball and in St. Louis where the best player in the game left in obvious pain as he was crashed into at first base. Hold your breath everyone. But there is good news in Oakland, some more on the South Side of Chicago, and we know that both of those cities need some good news. I give you some news about one pitcher who just teased you with one good start, and another that I am starting to pay more attention to in Florida. We also continue our series of pitching streamers with a new guy north of the border, so don't miss all of that and more with Rounding The Bases.
