1. Fantasy Baseball: Roaming the Outfield for a Second-Half Catch

    The last two weeks have shown owners that what happens in April does not necessarily dictate what is going to happen in July. Players will get off to hot or cold starts and then suddenly turn on a dime to produce effectively...

    There is only one real bar in the village of Cooperstown. Not a bad place really. They have Yuengling on tap, so it cannot be all bad. No air conditioning, though, just a little bit of a dive bar...

    Ah, back in the saddle again! The second half of the season begins today for many teams, while others will get to hold off one more day. The All-Star festivities had their moments, for certain, but it was pretty evident that there need to be some changes

  7. Fantasy Baseball: Catching The Next Matt Wieters

    With young catching popping up across some teams, and aging catchers running others, it is logical to look at who could be the next big thing. Catching is already a thin position that has historically been top heavy...

    The Phillies should not have gone for two last night against the Reds, that was just rubbing it in. It is always amazing when you see a score like that (22-1) come across the bottom of the television screen...
