Ubaldo Jimenez, ineffectively wild
Due to his drop in fastball velocity, ineffective breaking pitches, and worse-than-usual control, Ubaldo Jimenez has not been the pitcher the Orioles had hoped to sign. In need of an ace for his staff, Orioles GM Dan Duquette opted not to shell out hundreds of millions of dollars in pursuit of an established ace; instead, he signed a true boom or bust pitcher with ...

DraftKings – El Nuno Watch
Call it recency bias. Call it trending stats. Call it your mom. I don't care. The Rockies on the road are still 'teh suck'. Earlier this week I told you to Leave It To Peav'er for similar reasons. If San Fran knew how to hit the ball and play defense, that call would've gone from decent to great. Well, and if

Dynastic Direction Young Southpaws: Rob Kaminsky, Henry Owens & Eduardo Rodriguez
by Ivar G. Anderson If I had it to do all over I would have taught my eldest son, a natural left hander, how to throw a baseball much earlier in his development since teams always have a need for left handed pitchers. That is

Roto Riteup — Presented By DraftKings: August 30, 2014
Today’s Roto Riteup was written while listening — and watching — the 100th episode of the podcast The Partially Examined Life. I am by no means a philosopher and even calling me a dilettante in the field would be generous, but I do find the realm fascinating. On today’s agenda: 1. Welcome back, Yadier Molina […]

2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Week 22 Closer Report
Welcome to another addition of the Closer Report here at the Fantasy Fix. For Week 22, we see a committee emerge where one hadn’t existed, but otherwise things are slowing down considerably. We also draw closer to the Sept 1 and the roster explosion that comes with that date. Follow along to see where we are […]

Wade Miley's junior-year improvements
In his third full season in the show, the Arizona southpaw might have turned the corner. This doesn't compensate for the team's horrid 2014, but it could mean that he'll help them in the future. The Diamondbacks stink. If you think differently, you're in denial. ...

September Call Ups: Who can help you down the stretch?

2014 Fantasy Football: Top Ten Running Backs
1. LeSean McCoy McCoy should be this year’s first-overall pick. He is a perfect fit in Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense. Last season Shady won the rushing title by 268 yards. Over the past three seasons, McCoy is second in fantasy points only to Adrian Peterson. He had well over 350 touches last year and is […]

Week 22 MLB Waiver Wire: The Home Stretch
I love Fantasy Sports. This is the career path I want to take. Unfortunately, I cannot micromanage ten fantasy teams at once amidst being a full-time college student. So, I had to resort to owning just 2 fantasy baseball teams this year. In the first league I am in 4th place and projected to get … Continue reading » T...

Fantasy Roundup: I Believe in Mike Minor
Mike Minor still knows how to pitch. Prior to yesterday’s game his statistics suggested otherwise (4.90 ERA and 1.48 WHIP). In early August the Braves skipped his start so he could “clear his mind.” Yesterday he looked like the pitcher he was last year. The changeup had good break to it. The curveball was a true bat misser (partly because the Mets hitters were not picking it up) and he had good command of the fastball. Heading into next year Minor is going to be one of my sleepers becau...

On the Farm, Week 22: Prospect Risers of 2014
As I get ready to close out the year of “On the Farm” my last two articles will focus on players that improved the most over what they did in 2013 and players who saw their stock fall. This is not a list of players in terms of who I think has more skill or is more valuable in a dynasty format; it’s simply a measure of who improved the most or declined the most. As always there will be players who you may agree or disagree, and please let me know in the comments section. This year has be...

Two Startapalooza, Week 23: This Is It
Alright Head-to-Headers and Weekly League players. This is more than likely the most important week of your season.

Not to worry my peeps, the Legendary Lifshitz is back and ready to drop some two start pitcher science on y'all. In fact I'll be taking over as your captain from here on out and into 2015.

Aroldis Chapman just isn't fair
Aroldis Chapman has always been an elite reliever, but in 2014 he's taken it to another level. When it comes to evaluating established stars it is easy to look at the issue in a binary way. If a star is producing like a star, there is nothing to report. If they are failing to meet expectations, then it's time to dig deeper. However, just because an elite player...

Expanded Rosters = The Buy Bang Theory
Rosters are just about to go from Foster's oil cans to forties for our annual tradition of getting completely wasted on rookie nookie. I remember in September of 1997, this young talkative player debuted. He could spin a yarn as well as he could spin his bat. That player had modest power in the minors and was hitting .361 in Triple-A at the time of his call-up. His name: Sean Casey. He had a solid career, hitting for modest power and a solid average. Later he became more known for his ...

Points Leagues: The Hipster Guide to September Call-Ups
Rosters expand on Monday to allow for the big league clubs to take a look at 15 more players during the last month of the season.  All the mainstream experts say to pick up the top prospects who will get to see playing time for the last month to boost your roster.   But I’m so bitter today that I can’t recommend doing anything like that if you’re in a points league.  You see, I woke up early and picked out just the perfect outfit, but not one person has mistaken me for homeless.  I...

Travis Snider and the Young Old Guy
The Pirates' outfielder has been a disappointment for years. Now he's doing well. It might not mean anything, but in fantasy, he's worth a shot. With the exception of a few weeks right after he came up, there was no point in this season when "

Joc Pederson’s MVP Season
Joc Pederson has had one heck of a 2014. The center fielder has blown away the already-high expectations placed before him this year, leading all of Triple-A in home runs, on-base percentage, on-base plus slugging, walks and runs scored. To be fair, his spot atop the list in some of those categories is partially thanks […]

How to get a hit against Clayton Kershaw
Kershaw is the most dominant pitcher in baseball. For Major League batters that makes their job very difficult. This then is Beyond the Box Score's "How to hit against Clayton Kershaw for Dummies," also known as an advanced scouting report. The intro is a bit silly, but it's important to note that Kershaw is probably pretty low on the list of opposing pitchers that a batter might wa...

DraftKings – Thank You Trevor, May I Have Another?
I’m a Twins fan (we comin’ in 2016), but I have little trouble picking on Trevor May, who has gotten knocked around like a guy in Knockaround Guys (never saw – looked dumb). Through his first four career starts (14.1 IP), May holds an 8.79 ERA and 8.16 BB/9...no bueno. He actually didn’t walk anyone his last time out, but May was so concerned with throwing strikes, he ended up tossing meatballs to the Tigers, who tagged ...

The Proof Is In The Peripherals: Aug. 29-Sept. 4
There's only a month left of regular season baseball and, for those in head-to-head fantasy leagues, your playoffs could be starting as soon as Monday.  With such little time left, it's probably not quite as relevant to note season-long advanced metrics so we're going to focus more directly on what players have done in August.  It's the "what have you done for me lately" edition of TPIITP as I'll give you a few tips on which players might be worth adding or dropping in your fantasy crunch t...

Jay Bruce Makes My Bowels Loose
I thought Jay Bruce was a lock for 30/100 not dirty undies. Thirty-hundo not dirty-undies! All year Bruce Stinksteen has been behind "Born to Run" Billy Hamilton, Todd Frazier, who's classically rocking out and Learning to Fly, and Devin "Is That Your Face Or Are You Wearing Wax Lips?" Mesoraco, who had a breakout season. And, here, Jay Bruce is less appetizing than sitting across from Bruce Jenner when it's humid. Hard to know where the bottom is. Problem people find wh...

2014 Fantasy Football: Streaming Defensive Backs in Your IDP Leagues
I’m sure you’ve been told time and time again that you can draft defensive backs late and you don’t have to reach for a stud.  You’ve probably heard the saying from twitter when fantasy football enthusiasts tell you to stream team defenses and even test your luck and stream quarterbacks (depending on league size of […]

Bullpen Report: Week 22
The problem you're having with your innings limit is everyone's problem with just five weeks to go. The combative strategy against this is to use a familiar SP option for streaming, but this time, use it for RP.  The concept is sound, and is an effective method for leagues without limits, kinda like doctors without borders, but with mitts and jerseys.  So here's how it goes: find the guys you're streaming on your roster for SP, but instead, find an effective middle reliever or two or thre...

Negative WAR players: Teams dragged down by below-replacement performances
Some teams have given away more than five wins so far this season with below-replacement players; some have really limited that damage. A below-replacement player should be worth nothing to a major league baseball team. Sure, he's not actually worthless to the organization; a club's minor league teams couldn't function without many organizational players. There's no direct va...
