Fantasy Football Week 1 Waiver Wire

With Week 1 essentially in the books, it's time to scour the waiver wire and grab the players who will make an impact this season, but haven't been owned yet for various reasons. Thanks to injuries to Dez Bryant, Andre Ellington and TY Hilton, a few players have emerged sooner than

Searching for New York’s Dark Knight

"You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Since arriving at the Show, Matt Harvey was an untouchable force, an icon in New York revered by every baseball fan, but quickly, with a few questionable words, he's become neither the hero the city needs, nor the hero

Jake Arrieta’s Rise to Dominance

Since joining the Chicago Cubs, Jake Arrieta has become one of the best pitchers in baseball. Through 27 starts this year, he's 17-6 with a 2.11 ERA and a no-hitter to his name. He posted a 5.0 WAR in 2014 and currently sports a 5.4 WAR. The Cy Young Award race,

David Wright’s Return from Injury

No one knew what to expect out of David Wright after missing the majority of his season due to spinal stenosis. In his rehab games, he never delivered an extra base hit. His first plate appearance with the New York Mets, however, flashed signs of vintage Wright, catapulting a ball deep into

Fantasy Football Value Plays

Everyone knows which players are worth grabbing early on, but there's plenty of athletes in fantasy football drafts that are overlooked and represent great value based on their average draft position.

Power Shift in the AL East

Not long ago it looked like the New York Yankees were the favorite to run away with the AL East. But after the Toronto Blue Jays acquired Troy Tulowitzki, David Price, LaTroy Hawkins, Mark Lowe and Ben Revere, the tides turned mightily. For the first time in months, the Yankees are

Los Angeles Dodgers: Doomed by Complacency

The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost four games in a row, it isn't time to panic by any means, but something is inherently wrong with this franchise that consistently underachieves. With a monster payroll that's disgusting in its own right, the Dodgers should be far and away the best team in

The Toronto Blue Jays Paradox

No team was as active and ambitious as the Toronto Blue Jays were at the MLB Trade Deadline. Sure the Kansas City Royals acquired Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist, but they already possessed a sizable first place lead over their peers in the AL Central. Toronto was six games behind the

The Snakebitten Oakland A’s

With a 48-62 record, the Oakland A's have the fifth fewest wins in the major leagues thus far. After losing in the Wild Card one-game playoff last year, to the Kansas City Royals, it's been downhill for the franchise run by General Manager Billy Beane. Beane made some unfortunate headwinds in

Remembering The D-Train: Dontrelle Willis

One of my fondest memories as a baseball fan growing up was the rise of Dontrelle Willis. The 6'4" lefty made his major league debut in 2003 for the Florida Marlins. He was initially drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2000 and saw himself traded for the first time in 2002
