What If…The 1994 MLB Strike Never Happened (AL Edition)

John Lepore | March 24th, 2020

The Strike of 1994 devastated baseball. It was the first time since 1904 that the World Series wasn’t played. It cut short historic seasons, deprived franchises of turning their fortunes around, and cost the game some fans who had grown up on the crack of the bat and the smell of peanuts. But on August 11, 1994, after Randy Johnson struck out Ernie Young, there was no joy in Mudville or any other town where baseball was played.

Texas Rangers 2020 Season Preview

Alex Kielar | March 3rd, 2020 

Well, the Rangers closed The Ballpark in Arlington in decent fashion, going 78-84 last year, and now move into their new ballpark, Globe Life Park. Not much was really expected last year for the Rangers in the AL West with the Astros* and A’s, but they were in the American League Wild Card race for part of the season and outperformed where expectations were.

Joey Ricotta  | January 12th, 2020

Third Baseman Todd Frazier has agreed to terms with the Texas Rangers for one year at $5 million. There is also a team option for 2021 at $5.75 million.

DraftKings Around the Horn September 5th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |September 5th, 2019

Just seven games to break down in MLB DFS tonight. Stephen Strasburg is the number one pitcher option in a tough matchup at Atlanta. After that, is a whole bunch of mediocrity. A strategy that is likely to be popular will be rostering two mid-tier pitchers to go along with some higher-priced bats. Minnesota will face Nathan Eovaldi at Fenway, the Rays get a home matchup against Trent Thornton and the Jays, and the ‘Stros will look to tee off at home against Marco Gonzalez and the Mariners. Let’s “Step into a Slim-Jim” and go Around the Horn! Continue reading

John Lepore | August 30th, 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.

DraftKings Around the Horn August 29th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |August 29th, 2019

A more simplistic slate awaits us for Thursday night as we have just six games to breakdown. Just like last night, Colorado appears to be where high scoring is most likely to occur. The Texas Rangers are at home against Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners, and the Los Angeles Dodgers will visit the Arizona Diamondbacks. These games appear to have the best potential for higher scoring. Grabs some peanuts and a frosty beverage, we’re going Around the Horn! Continue reading
