Philadelphia Phillies 2019 Season Recap

Alex Kielar | November 8th, 2019

Bryce Harper entered, for a massive 13-year, $330 million contract, and expectations for the 2019 Phillies skyrocketed. A lot of people picked the Phillies to win the NL East after the signing, but instead, they literally had an average season, finishing at .500 (81-81) and fourth in the division. Not only that but to add salt to the $330 million wound, the Phillies and Harper had to watch the Harper-less Nationals take a crazy route on the way to winning their first World Series in team history. More on the Nationals Cinderella-type season in their recap coming soon.

NFL Power Rankings: Week Three

Raul Vazquez | September 24th, 2019 

There was a lot movement in my rankings this week but that is a result of it still being early in the season and still finding out the identity of teams. The Giants are the biggest movers this week as they moved up nine spots with the play of Daniel Jones.

Locks, Stacks, and Barrels: MLB DFS for September 6th, 2019

John Lepore | September 6th, 2019

The baseball season is a grind. It’s every single day. We will approach DFS the same way and be winners at the end of the season even if we have our hot streaks and slumps. Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.

Two-Start Pitchers: Week 22 and Streamer of the Week

Matt Bishop | September 1, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK

Mitch Keller, SP PIT 

(37% CBS, 4% ESPN, 9% Yahoo)

9/03: Miami Marlins (48 – 87) Last in NL East

9/08: St. Louis Cardinals (75 – 59) 1st in NL Central

Firmly solidified as the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect and ranked as the 25th best prospect in baseball, Mitch Keller carries an electric skill set and an array of plus offerings. But since his callup on 5/27, the results have been lack-luster, pitching to a butt clenching 8.62 ERA 1.98 WHIP. While his 11.86 K/9 is encouraging, Keller has never really been known for his control, which is evident from his 3.45 BB/9. This is slightly higher than his 2.83 BB/9 minor league career mark, but not terrible for his first exposure to major league hitters. Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- Atlanta Braves

Tom Greene | Aug 28th, 2019 

Our “Into the 80s” series rolls on. The fourth team to join the 80-win-club is the Atlanta Braves. When Bryce Harper signed with the Phillies, most of the national media picked Philly to win the NL East. What the media didn’t say is that the Braves won the NL East last season. Harper may have made you forget about Ronald Acuña, Jr. and his team. At 80-53, they are behind the Dodgers, Astros, and the Yankees, but are still a force to be reckoned with. Continue reading
