Players heat up and cool down over weekly periods, it’s as sure as the samples are small.

OVERRATED FANTASY HITTERS

Vanglorious and TONY Sports would like to apologize ahead of time to any reader insulted by this post.  I run the risk of upsetting some people out there who may have some of my “overrated” players cemented in their rosters.  However, debating player value is what makes this hobby as fun and interesting as it is.  If you disagree feel free to voice your justifications for your player and if you agree, of course, feel free to say so as well.

BOUNCE-BACK CANDIDATES

Season after season, fantasy draft after fantasy draft there are always a plethora of bounce-back players.  You know them. Players that were once either excellent or considered destined for greatness until they ran into statistical tragedy .  Now these players can be gotten at bargain-basement prices at auction, or in the bottom half of fantasy drafts.  Below is a series of installments intended to explore such candidates.

Everyone’s seen a “Switch-Hitter”, but have you ever seen a “Switch-Pitcher?”

March 30, 2010

Can he make an impact on the Major League level?

Pat Venditte is a pitcher who can deal with both his left and right arms.  Although his talent has only gotten him a job pitching for the Advanced Class-A Tampa Yankees, his technique has given him the opportunity to pitch for a very curious Joe Girardi and the Bomber’s tonight versus the Atlanta Braves in Lake Buena Vista, Fl. It should be very interesting to watch an ambidextrous pitcher face off against a switch-hitter like Chipper Jones. Read the rest of this entry ?

This guy did coke? ...NO WAY!

Texas Rangers skipper Ron Washington tested positive for cocaine in an MLB- administered drug test dating back to 2009.

“I did make a mistake and I regret that I did it,” Washington told SI.com by phone from Surprise, Ariz., on Tuesday night. “I am really embarrassed and I am really sorry.”

As if steroids, HGH, and other performance enhancing drugs weren’t enough, now we have to worry about drug addict managers as well?

Whats next?

This just in…   Joe Girardi’s a meth head and Jerry Manuel’s at a rave trippin ballz ( the second one wouldn’t surprise me)?

This is getting ridiculous….

The Barclays Center

March 12, 2010

Since 2006 I have been listening to one rumor after another about a proposed arena for the New Jersey Nets which would be located in Brooklyn, New York City.  Like most, I met this idea with disbelief and condescension. Read the rest of this entry ?

2010 Fantasy Baseball Top 50

March 11, 2010

#1-Hanley Ramirez-SS-FLA- What’s not to love about Han-Ram?  Given the shallowness at the shortstop position for the 2010 season and the monstrous numbers he put up in ’09 (.342 BA, 101 R’s, 24 HR’s, 106 RBI’s, 27 SB, .410 OBP), Hanley’s value is “through the roof”.  Oh yeah, I almost forgot, he’s only 26 and it’s very possible he hasn’t even met his potential yet. How scary is that?

The New York Yankees and veteran outfielder Randy Winn have reportedly agreed to a one year deal worth $2 million.  Prior to this off-season Brian Cashman(General Manager) stated that the Yankees, under the order of the Steinbrenner Bros(Part Owners), would limit their 2010 payroll to $200 million, and with the addition of Winn, and his $ 2 million dollar salary, the Yankees have met that limit.  Read the rest of this entry ?
