MLB DFS: ALCS Game Four Showdown

John Lepore | October 17th, 2019

Game Four of the ALCS was supposed to be last night. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. What the change in schedule does for us though is it gives us a rematch of the Game One starters. It will be cool at Yankee Stadium tonight, and the wind will be blowing out toward the short right-field porch at about 16 mph. There should be a few souvenirs for the fans in those seats tonight.

Well here we are, we made it to the Championship Series. On the American League side, we get probably the most anticipated matchup to this point in the Yankees and Astros. All season long, they were on a crash course that led to meeting in the ALCS with a trip to the World Series on the line. Both have their strengths and their weaknesses and have gone on different paths this season while having obstacles along the way. Continue reading

Did Yankees Really Ever Need a “Frontline” Starter?

Alex Kielar| September 12th, 2019

When Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman decided to stay pat at the July 31 Trade Deadline and not make even one move for a starter, a lot of questions were raised and some fans were outraged. That outrage was backed up by the fact the Yankees’ starters, over a six-game period from July 20-25, allowed a horrendous 15.59 ERA, allowing 41 earned runs and 12 home runs over 23 2/3 innings. As terrible as this was, did the Yankees really NEED a starter at the deadline? Well, the performance of the starting staff since July 31 has been almost in spite of Cashman not making a move, and the Yankees’ plans with how to use the starters and bullpen are enough to make a deep run. They have even started to try out a new tactic with their starters which I will get into more later. Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers

Tom Greene \ Aug 14th, 2019

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.

The AL’s Best Team on July 1st. The NL’s Best Team on July 1st.

Tom Greene | July 2nd, 2019

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.
