Early candidates for fantasy awards

Monday, June 6, 2011, 7:31 PM
Once the season hits it's midway point, I am going to give out some awards for top fantasy performers. I'm sure a lot of players will be very upset if they don't win these prestigious awards, and I can't blame them. But I'm not in the business of making friends, so they will just have to deal with...

Another perfect game for Halladay

Friday, May 27, 2011, 10:10 AM
It was recently brought to my attention that Roy Halladay threw a second perfect game, and although it wasn't real, this one was for $1 million.

So Jason Giambi hit three home runs last night. When he hit the third, a blast off Dannys Baez, my friend and I sat there in disbelief.

Phillies offense in free fall It seems like just yesterday that the Phillies had the hottest offense in the major leagues, sitting near the top in most major offensive categories.

Oswalt, Berkman, and some injury news

Tuesday, May 17, 2011, 11:03 AM
After years of playing fantasy baseball, I locked in my first mega-deal over the weekend.

Examining Bautista's meteoric rise

Monday, May 16, 2011, 6:33 PM
On Sunday, Jose Bautista hit his 14th home run of the season. And his 15th. And his 16th. I'm sure I'm not the first, and certainly won't be the last, to question where Bautista's power came from.
