The Wire Troll: Chase Anderson Opening Eyes in the Desert

Posted August 10, 2014 by Anonymous

You’re probably not paying much attention to the Astros these days, but that hasn’t stopped Castro from surging. The backstop is 8-for-26 (.308) in August with a homer and two RBI. For the year, the lefty-swinging Castro is posting a respectable 687 OPS with 11 dingers. Okay, so he’s struggled to duplicate his 2013 breakout, but he looks poised for a nice finish.

Draftster Recommendations: August 8

Posted August 8, 2014 by RotoRob

Teixeira has actually had a pretty nice comeback season — at least in comparison to the nightmare that was 2013 — but he remains fragile, missing games here and there. And that makes him tough to bet on in daily fantasy baseball.

RotoDerby July Update: Stuck in Tulo Turmoil

Posted August 5, 2014 by Josh Johnson

The strategy behind our “Peakers” team was to find guys that played on regular basis in 2013 that we believe could top their total homer output. There is plenty of youth on this team as well as some guys who have underachieved in recent years. We placed 225th for the month of July with 94 totals points. On the season, we are 390th overall with a point total of 437.

2014 MLB Draft Team Grades: AL West

Posted August 2, 2014 by Anonymous

What once appeared to be an embarrassment of riches for the Astros has turned into flat-out embarrassment. Aiken will not don an Astros uniform after a failed post-Draft physical sent everything spiraling and the Astros never got him signed before the deadline. That will put more significance on the development of their other top picks, including Fisher, a fast-improving hitter who was a sixth-round pick by the Rangers in 2011.

Draftster Recommendations: July 29

Posted July 29, 2014 by RotoRob

There’s good reason for CarGo to be so discounted considering all the injuries this year have limited him to 10 homers in his worst season since he was a rookie with the A’s. He missed two games this weekend because of an ankle woe, came back Monday and looked very rusty (0-for-4 with two Ks), dropping his BA to a butt-ugly .152 mark over the last 20 games. So why in the hell would we recommend the struggling Gonzalez? Well, how about his career 7-for-9 mark with six RBI against Jackson? Climb aboard the CarGo express at such an inexpensive cost.

The Wire Troll: Emilio Bonifacio Second to None

Posted July 27, 2014 by Anonymous

Brush those trade rumours aside, Mr. Ackley, we don’t think you’ll be going anywhere. You may, however, find some new Fantasy owners after your torrid July, which includes a .358 average, 814 OPS, and five RBIs. No, Ackley’s season numbers don’t wow you, but the former No. 2 overall draft pick seems to be finding his stroke as of late.
