Re: Pick 5 of 7

You have to keep Arod, Kinsler, Quentin, Berkman and one of those SPs. Lincecum is real juicy and I could understand you wanting to keep him. This year he had 265 Ks, for crimey sakes. But Webb is a perennial Cy Young candidate. Starters aren't very safe, but Webb's one of the safer ones. Also, Lin...

Re: Who is your team MVP and LVP

MVP: Jorge Cantu/Mike Jacobs. In one 14-team league I picked up Jacobs in the 24th round. Sure, he finished with a .247 avg, but 32 HR and 93 RBI from your 24th pick? Puh-leez. Cantu was grabbed off the waiver wire. CY: Chad Billingsley. Got him in the 10th round in one league, and he turned into my...

Re: Yankee Stadium

You really think revenue sharing is actively on people's minds like that? Nah, I don't. But MLB, at large, makes a ton of money via the Yankee brand (same could be said for the Red Sox). And I would be surprised if the commissioner's office and ownership didn't dictate a lot of what's done/isn't do...

Re: Yankee Stadium

It's a great read - I recommend it. And, yeah, I could easily see how the passage would relate to LA's renowned idol-creation. In baseball, it's fascinating to watch everyone - commentators, the commissioner's office, and opposing teams and players - stand in line to take their own pictures with the...

Yankee Stadium

The 12-hour tribute to Yankee Stadium was unavoidable, yesterday. I've always been on the cynical side of things regarding the Yankees' brand of tradition and history. And in the lengthy lead-up to last night's game, someone asked me if I thought the long-term PR/branding value of the event possibly...

Re: Lots of PLAYOFF help neeeded

I have billingsley today, Carmona, guthrie, and cambrano tomorrow, and halladay at boston on sunday Hate to papasmurf your lineup, but Zambrano's next start is up in the air - MLB has already postponed today and tomorrow's Cubs/Astros games. Sunday may end up postponed, too. Even if it's not, we ca...

Re: John Lackey

You have to start Lackey. He's not a guy you can bench.
Tough loss for those counting on his start vs Seattle, this week, in h2h playoffs.

Next week it looks like Lackey might get 2 starts.

Re: Good Pitching Matchups - Week 24

Scott Olsen is starting at home against the Nats tomorrow. Olsen has looked bad, but it is the Nats. And he does still have a 3.33 ERA at home. And the Nats are sending Shairon Martis to the mound.

Is Olsen worth a start?

Re: John Lackey

Just in from Rotowire: Lackey is not scheduled to start in the Angels' upcoming four-game series against the Mariners. Lackey made his last start on September 6, but it looks like the Angels will skip his turn in the rotation to give him some rest. Fantasy owners who are approaching their league's p...
