The Daily Stream: #WhoYagot

April 6, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

It is Saturday and today I am taking a second look at my daily transaction leagues and seeing where I need to make up some ground and in what categories I need to target. I like to first do this on Wednesday or Thursday and then look again on Friday night or Saturday morning. Something […]

Clearing The Bases

October 12, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Being a Yankee fan, it’s not easy watching the League Championship Series and not feel like the Yanks should be there.    Not that I thought they were the best team in the American League, I have been picking Texas to make the World Series for most of the season, but I did believe they were […]

Rays Fans Will Eventually Come Back

April 18, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

With the 0-6 start, the departure of Manny Ramirez, and the injury to Evan Longoria, Rays fans stayed away in droves for the opening two victories against the Minnesota Twins. Coupling all that with the dumping of salary and the constant drumbeat from owner Stuart Sternberg that the fans don’t deserve their baseball team, I […]

With the postseason set to begin on Wednesday, the Yankees announced their roster for the American League Division series against the Twins.

Because Burnett is on a five-year deal, and he is making $16.5 million this season. Essentially, he is here to stay and the […]

Yankees Need a Back-Up in Ivan Nova

September 25, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

As the New York Yankees thrust towards the playoffs, with a magic number of three as of this writing, some postseason roster decisions still loom––large. At this point, the concern for the Yankees is their pitching. Yes, CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, and most of the bullpen will be fine. But beyond that (the other two starters) the Yankees have […]

Lower the Mound or Raise the Players

The score was 1 – 0 heading into the seventh inning in last night’s All Star Game before the NL broke through for three runs.  The low score became an issue this morning after the TV ratings were released.  They were lower than any since 1972.  What does it say?  It is reminiscent of the […]
