Welcome back, in my last article, I set the infield for the Team USA dream team. For this article, I will look at, arguably the most talented group for this hypothetical dream team, the outfield.

As usual, outfield is a position that is as deep as it is varied. You’ll find many different skillsets available amongst the position. But you’ll also need at least three and maybe up to five from the position to fill out your roster. So let’s look at the position not only in rank, but also in skillset, in order to see who you should draft when.

Anthony Rendon has signed with the Los Angeles Angels for 7-yrs/$245 million. There are no deferred payments, he has a full no-trade clause and there are no opt-outs. The former Washington Nationals third baseman has been one of the best in the game for a few years now. Let’s take a look at what he brings to his new squad.

Another great season and a trip to the playoffs, following a 106-56 regular-season record that brought the Los Angeles Dodgers to their seventh straight NL West first-place finish. However, the playoffs proved to be a different story, as the Dodgers were knocked out even earlier than in recent years, failing to reach the World Series for the first time in three years. They fell to the eventually World Series champions, the Washington Nationals in five games in the NLDS. Let’s take a look back on the season, as well as a look forward to 2020. Continue reading
81 wins for a team means they are assured they can finish no worse than .500. However, if you have 80 wins in August, you’ll finish above .500, guaranteed. You’ll most likely make the playoffs, too. Of course, barring catastrophic injuries or a strike.
On the radio, Tom Kent brought us back into the 80s on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night, dependent on where you are in the nation and what radio station you listen to. For me, it was Saturday night. In 2019, I bring you back into the 80s, by breaking down the teams that reach 80 wins. We had two that reached that mark last night. Let’s get to work. Continue reading

Well, the All-Star festivities are over, with the AL winning for the seventh year in a row, 4-3, and Mets’ Pete Alonso going home the winner of the home run derby. Now as we head into the second half tonight with a makeup game between the Astros and Rangers, let’s hand out our midseason awards. Continue reading

On the first of June, the Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers stood atop their respective leagues. Both were rolling. Both had comfortable division leads. Now, on July 1st, a team has overtaken the Minnesota Twins for best in the American League. Thankfully for our @jball0202 and my friend @Audra_Martin, the Twins still hold an eight-game lead in the American League Central. So, it certainly wasn’t the Twins fault they don’t hold the best record in the American League. This new team has just been on fire. Let’s break down who the best teams are on July 1st. Continue reading

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (54-26)
The Dodgers continue to stay red-hot. They have the best record in baseball and the best team in baseball. Cody Bellinger continues an unreal season. You know this team is special when they have won three straight games off a rookie walk-off home run. Continue reading

We’re just under a month away from the 2019 MLB All-Star game in Cleveland, so here are my starting nine for the National League squad:
Yasmani Grandal, Brewers
2019 stats: .282/.381/.544 .925 OPS .385 wOBA 138 wRC+ .262 ISO 14 HR and 2.6 WAR.
Grandal ranks 1st among NL catchers in every statistic listed above and he’s been just what the Brewers expected as they signed him in free agency.

As of writing this, the Chicago Cubs are -163 Vegas favorites to beat the St. Louis Cardinals tonight. I wanted to start there because once the first pitch is thrown, everything is out the window and subject to change. Such a storied rivalry between the Cubs and Cardinals. This season it has been a tale of two fields. The home team has won every meeting so far this season. The Cubs are 5-0 at Wrigley and the Cardinals are 3-0 at Busch Stadium. Continue reading

Week eight is here and some fresh power-rankings are out. This is the first installment of The Scorecrow’s top 10 power rankings. There have been some teams that have been consistent, some teams that have been disappointing, and some really surprising teams. So let’s break down the top 10.

Who’s hitting the ball better than Cody Bellinger right now? There are a couple of guys who are close, but Bellinger is easily the best hitter in baseball so far in 2019. With a line of .394/.478/.765 and 17 home runs through just 48 games, Bellinger is a Triple Crown threat. He also is sporting a 4.5 WAR, which is currently leading the league. What did he change from last year to make himself into what he is today? Let’s dive into it. Continue reading

Sometimes we need to look at DFS like we are putting together a puzzle. The top-notch players are usually the highest priced ones. The lower priced guys can be serviceable, given the right matchup. My goal with the article today is to give you some pieces, both high and low, to give you the best chance of putting together the perfect puzzle. Take a ride with me as I lay out some spend up options, value and BvP plays, and stacks. Continue reading

Who would have thought the best player the Marlins traded last year would be Christian Yelich? Safe to say since moving to the mid-west, he has become a marquee superstar. He began the week by doing something he already did this season: beat up the Cardinals. April 15th, he had three home runs against the red birds, added another the next night, giving him eight total in five consecutive games. Don’t worry St., Louis; he doesn’t save his power just for you, Yelich added four more homers, including his second multi-home run game of the week against the Dodgers, giving him on eight for the week and 16 RBI. Continue reading

No, it doesn’t. I’m totally kidding. Listen, dude. It’s Week 1. I know it’s easy to tell you not to panic when you lost by 100 or dropped 5 spots in your roto rankings, but Week 1 losses hurt and they cut you deep. And no matter how long the season is or how deep you think your team may be, you don’t feel whole for a while. So there is really not much I can tell that you already don’t know. But please remember that everything you are about to read should be prefaced with “I know it’s a small sample size, but” and is simply an observation or highlight of something that is outside the norm compared to a player’s career profile Continue reading

Mike Trout – Remember that time the Angels signed him to $426 million contract? They got a good value for that. Trout used the Rangers’ pitching staff as a launching pad crushing five home runs in four games. Oh, in 26 plates appearances the last seven game, he only struck out twice and walked eight times, that’s a 4.00 walk to strikeout ratio. He also led the league in OBP (.654), SLG (1.375), and OPS (2.029), to name a few. Continue reading

Opening weekend is in the books, and some surprise teams had a good weekend. We also had the opportunity to watch some superstar players try to make an impact on teams and some MVPs continue right where they left off. Here are the seven hottest hitters from this weekend.

The Dodgers made it back to the World Series last season but fell short yet again. This time to the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox were able to cruise past the Dodgers and defeat them in five games. In the previous season, the Houston Astros beat the Dodgers in seven games. Could the third time be the charm for LA?
Marcos Mendoza | January 25th, 2019
According to reports from The Athletic the Dodgers and A.J. Pollock have come to an agreement on a 5yr $60 million deal. Pollock can opt out after three years if he reaches a certain number of Plate appearances. The 5th yr option is for $10 million with a 5$ million buyout.

Finally, a series that lived up to the hype. A little closer then I thought it would be, but I have been predicting the Dodgers to make a repeat trip to the Fall Classic. After an intense seven-game fight with the Brewers, the Dodgers will move on to face a well-rested Boston Red Sox club. Continue reading
