If we have a Major League Baseball season this year, it will be the 60th for the California/Los Angeles Angels. For teams like the Angels that have a shorter history than most, it is hard to pick four players. Nevertheless, let’s see who would be on the Los Angeles Angels Mount Rushmore.
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.
Our focus will be on the night slate. We’ve whittled it down to a handful of games that project for high run totals to help build your offense. The highest totals as of this morning are as follow: Angels at Rangers(11), Phillies at Red Sox (12), Royals at Orioles (10.5), Yankees at Athletics (9.5) and finally the Astros at home to the Tigers. Let’s get right to it and Go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
The 2019 MLB season is now in its stretch run, closing out the final year of this decade. So I thought it would be fun to put together a team of the best players by position for the 2010s All-Decade Team. A couple picks are definitely no-brainers, with others being tougher to come to a decision. Without further ado, here we go. Let the arguments commence. 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 →
To me, it is clearly time to spend up for the big hitters tonight. With only five games on the menu, the pitching options are few and far between. I’ve narrowed down a couple that I will be targeting and have included some of the hitters I like for tonight. It’s a new month and the same old grind. Let’s get into some Pitching and Core Hitters to target for tonight. Continue reading →
This week in Baseball (Yes, that #TWIB show on FOX is something I miss, too!) sees the return of Albert Pujols to St. Louis for the first time since 2012. It also saw the Astros visiting Cincinnati for the first time since their move to the American League in 2013. Let’s break this down for a second. Continue reading →
If we’re being 100 percent honest, I’m not even playing the slate today. Why? It’s a four-gamer starting at 4:05 EST. There is just way too much variance and randomness with a slate this small. When a .200 hitting backup catcher could make or break you, I’ll gladly stay away. I will never tell you to do something that I wouldn’t do. With that said, you’re still reading this and you’re still here. So, that means I can’t tell you not to play it either. I still went ahead and did some research to try to help narrow it down. Let’s get right into the picks for today as I present to you some quick core plays.
This article is for the all-day slate starting at 2:10, but if you only plan on playing the five-game slate starting at 7:05, I have tips for you as well. Also, some of the lineups aren’t released yet, so be sure to check that they are before submitting.
Well, hope you all had a great Jackie Robinson Day and were able to make some money last night. I hope you played Christian Yelich. I also hope you didn’t play either of the pitchers I mentioned. That might be the last time I roster Kikuchi and who knows about Cahill. Either way, the best part about MLB DFS is we get to bounce-back the next day. So, that’s exactly what we’ll do. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for tonight’s huge 13-game slate. 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 →
Evening games across the board for this edition of Around the Horn. We got our feet wet opening day, hopefully, you were able to hit on some of your lineups. We are just getting started in MLB so let’s keep it going! Continue reading →
Merely 17 days after the previous record-holding deal in Bryce Harper‘s contract with the Phillies worth $330 million was made, Mike Trout and the Angels are set to leave that in the dust with a massive $430 million extension. The deal, as per multiple sources, is 12 years long, which could keep the greatest player of this generation, if not of all-time, with the Angels for the rest of his career.
The Outfield position has always been deep and 2019 is no different. With five players being drafted in the 1st round, there is elite upside available with the first 15 outfielders off the board. This is one of the only positions that will not penalize you by reaching for an early pick because you have 2-5 more chances to get your starting lineup straight. No matter how you spin it, it’s deep. Continue reading →
The day that I’m writing this marks the one-year anniversary of the Minneapolis Miracle. When the Vikings defeated the Saints in the NFC Divisional Round on a circus catch and score by Stefon Diggs.
I was reading my timeline of that day and I saw everyone proclaim this as one of the greatest moment in sports history. Is it though? This sparked this idea, to give my top five moments in sports history.
The All-Star game marks the halfway point in the MLB season, even though all teams have played over half of their games. I want to take a look at the first half of the 2018 season and hand out my first half awards.
