Daily Notes | The FB365 Delivers! Edition

In the bullets of yesterday’s daily notes there are some intriguing nuggets or pearls of wisdom I would like to go back over. The first, Tulo’s groin strain and my recommendation of who to possibly replace him with. I looked no further than Marco Scutaro, current Rockies second sacker, who retained his SS eligibility from […]

Daily Notes | The Bullets, Just Bullets Edition

The Mariners beat down on the Rangers last night to the tune of 21-8. Justin Smoak had 2 three run jacks and Jesus Montero was 3-4 with 2 BB, 4 Runs, 4 RBI, and was a triple short of the cycle. Derek Holland gave up 8 in 1.2 IP while Yoshinori Tateyama was roughed up for another […]

Daily Notes – The Prospect Makes Good Edition

I’m going to be totally upfront and honest here. I don’t know much about prospects. I’m a big league guy. I love going to minor league games and have the pleasure of living in an area where there is a NY-Penn League team, but I don’t know a lot of the guys in the minors. […]

Daily Notes – The Couple of Guys Under the Radar Edition

So, Adam Wainwright looked like the old Adam Wainwright last night, rattling off the complete game shutout, fanning 9, allowing only 4 hits, 1 walk. He has been mostly average so far this season, with glimpses of his old self, but last night was encouraging (understatement). Yes, this gem came against the Padres, but his […]

Daily Notes – The Orioles Dropped Bombs Edition

OK, so the Orioles hitting three homers in a row to open a game may not be extremely fantasy relevant, but it’s neat and hasn’t been done before. All said and done, they hit five homers as a team in the first game of the double header. Sure teams have hit more, and Strasburg’s 13 […]

Daily Notes – The Josh Hamilton Is Pretty Good Edition

Last night Josh Hamilton added his name to the baseball record books. He picked up 18 total bases in a game while going 5-for-5 with 4 HR’s and a double. Hamilton’s talent is never in question, just his health. Right now he is healthy and tearing it up. He has corrected his day night split […]

Daily Notes – The Talk About Pitching Edition

There are a couple things that piqued my interest yesterday. So much in fact, I couldn’t decide what to focus on for the main point of this mornings article. So rather than short change any of my thoughts (looking to give you your full penny’s worth) I’m just going to kind go on and see […]

Daily Notes – The Albert Pujols Gets On the Board Edition

It finally happened. After 111 AB’s, Pujols finally went yard. I don’t have any experience as a big league hitter, but I can imagine this is a sizable burden that has been lifted off him. Hopefully with that out of the way he can relax and get back on his game. He still has the […]

Daily Notes – The Possible End Of An Era Edition

Last night in Kansas City, Mariano Rivera collapsed in a heap of agony on the warning track after chasing down a fly ball during batting practice. As he was running it down, he tweaked his knee, hit the wall, then hit the ground. After being carted off the field, there was an actual game played, […]

Daily Notes – The We Got Lots Goin On Edition

Where to begin with all the action and surprises in baseball last night? Weaver? Harper? Lynn? This is too much to process in one paragraph. It’s a quick jump into bullets today. Jared Weaver was a walk and a passed ball away from perfection last night, but had to settle for the 9th no hitter […]

Why You Need To Buy Low On Pujols

It’s no secret that the savy manager can make or break his team with the buy low/sell high trade mantra. An extreme example is the trade I’ve just executed in my 12 team mixed keeper league. I was offered Joey Votto, Roy Halladay and a 3rd round pick in next years draft for Josh Hamilton […]

Daily Notes – The Travis Hafner Still Has Power Edition

Did anyone see the Travis Hafner bomb yesterday? ESPN’s HR tracker had this thing at 481 feet. He hit it out to right field, so it automatically looks even bigger than that since the fence is so much closer there than in center. Anyway, video here… you can’t see the ball land, all you can […]
