Phillies make 'guest appearance' on 'Entourage'

Monday, August 15, 2011, 10:46 AM
I know this isn't fantasy, but it isn't quite real sports either, so I figured I'd get it out there anyway. Last night, if you looked closely, there was some Phillies love on the HBO series Entourage. While it wasn't a producer or actor giving a shout out to their favorite team, the real story might...

Top 30 wide receivers for 2011

Friday, August 12, 2011, 4:53 PM
First, let me thank everyone who expressed interest in joining the first annual Fantasy Island Football League (FIFL). The response was great. Sorry for those of you that didn't make it, but it was pretty much a first come, first served type thing. To those that are in the league: Welcome. And good... Read more

Fantasy Football Diary: Casting Call

Sunday, August 7, 2011, 12:17 PM
This season, I am going to be doing something a little different. I am going to host a 12-team fantasy league, and blog about it every week. From draft results, to trades, to weekly trash talking, I'll use this league as a way to provide extra analysis and answer questions that arise from moves made... Read more

Top 20 running backs for 2011

Friday, August 5, 2011, 9:43 AM
Running back. That position where you can pencil in 20 points every week. However, you can also find yourself rotating players in and out each week hoping for a big game. While league scoring dictates just how important the running back position is, most standard scoring leagues put a premium on that... Read more

Top 20 quarterbacks for 2011

Thursday, July 21, 2011, 6:09 PM
Football may not be officially back, but it sure feels like it to me. I was hoping to wait until after the lockout ended and free agency was over to begin ranking players for the 2011 fantasy football season, but I couldn't help myself. Quarterback looked like one of the most settled positions, so... Read more

The Derek Jeter problem

Friday, July 15, 2011, 8:53 AM
Since this is a fantasy sports blog, and Derek Jeter is probably the biggest baseball news during a very slow week, I figured now would be a good time to break down all things Jeter. 1. THE 3,000th HIT Jeter, for the first time in as long as I can remember, is getting some serious negative press... Read more

Handing out first-half awards

Friday, July 8, 2011, 8:03 AM
Recently, the 2011 MLB season reached its midway point. While they don't hand out any official awards at halftime, I figured it was an appropriate time to give some players their due. In order to make it as fair as possible, I made the cut-off July 1. That way, only stats accumulated on June 30th... Read more

June odds and ends

Thursday, June 30, 2011, 8:36 PM
LEE VS. VERLANDER, REVISITED Yesterday (last night, actually), I wrote a post comparing Cliff Lee and Justin Verlander in the month of June. As I noted, Verlander started his sixth game of June today against the Mets. While it wasn't his best start of the month, it was certainly a great performance... Read more

How good has Cliff Lee been?

Wednesday, June 29, 2011, 9:37 PM
...Almost as good as Justin Verlander. Here are the stats for both aces in the month of June: W-L IP CG SHO H ER BB K ERA WHIP Cliff Lee (PHI) 5-0 42.0 3 3 21 1 8 29 0.21 0.69 Justin Verlander (DET)* 5-0 42.0 2 1 22 4 4 48 0.86 0.62 Both pitchers have thrown the same amount of innings... Read more
