2011 NBA Draft Team Grades

Cleveland Cavaliers  - B I do understand the wanting of a premier PG, but not when your team already has 3 NBA PGs on the roster.  Regardless, Irving is super talented and will eventually help this team so it’s a good pick.  Tristan Thompson on the other hand better be the next Karl Malone because the Cavs needed a SF more than anything and passed on well every small forward in this draft.  I like Hickson better as the future PF but at this point, he should be asking out.  Who is Milan Macvan? Kyrie Irving - A    Tristan Thompson - B   Milan Macvan - C-  Minnesota Timberwolves - B Minnesota did a great job of trading Johny Flynn and Donatas Motiejunas and receiving a future 1st rounder and Brad Miller in return as this opens up the PG position for Ricky Rubio.  However, drafting Derrick Williams was not the best fit for this team.  Enes Kanter would have been the PERFECT fit.  How will Malcom Lee find any PT this year with Wes Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Luke Ridnour and Rubio alre

UPDATE - Albert Pujols Watch - Non-Displaced Fracture

A PT's POV UPDATE - MLB ‎ BREAKING: Albert Pujols has a non-displaced fracture of his left radius (forearm). He will likely be sidelined 4-6 weeks. UPDATE - SiriusXMFantasy ‎ Dr Roto on Albert Pujols "has strength in wrist, likely not a break. Swelling. Might play this weekend at earliest. DL is a possibility" VIDEO Yesterday, Albert Pujols left the game with a left wrist injury , while also indicating he might have injured his shoulder as well. I love Pujols, but I cant help but say that the injury is kind of his own fault.  If his footing was correct(right foot on the bag), he would have had his left arm extended in front of him instead of out to the side. Keep it here for the latest updates Looking for a replacement? Check this and this Ty Wigginton has been added the most since the Breaking News.  Must be his multiple position eligibility(1B,2B,3B,OF)

Boston Red Sox - Team Of The Week (6/6-612)

Starting 0-6 and being a season low 8 games under .500 at 2-10, we knew the Red Sox were a lot better than that (as you can see they were both of our World Series winners in our 2011 projections ).  With that lineup and pitching staff it was only a matter of time before they got hot and made a run as the AL's best team. The week started with a huge 3 game series in the Bronx against the Yankees, a fight for first place.  Boston trailed the Yankees by a game coming in and had their chance to take over 1st place in the AL East. The Red Sox wasted no time as Jacoby Ellsbury hit a lead off homer against Freddy Garcia, Adrian Gonzalez tripled in Pedroia who walked and then Youkilis hit a sac fly to score Gonzalez, to give the Sox a 3-0 lead after the top of the 1st.  Robinson singled in a run off lester in the bottom half of the 1st, but Pedroia's RBI double in the 2nd gave the Sox their 3-run lead right back.  The scored stayed 4-1 until the 5th when David Ortiz hit a 2-run hom

Look Out For Anthony Rizzo

UPDATE (6/11): Rizzo was an extra base machine in AAA and so far in his first 3 games in the bigs he has continued his extra base hitting.  After a 2-4 night with a double and home run , Rizzo is now hitting .429 (3-7), with a double, triple and home run, with 4 walks and a hit by pitch to give him a .667 on base.  It's going to be an easy transition from Adrian Gonzalez to Anthony Rizzo for Padre fans as Rizzo is almost a replica of Gonzalez.  And yes, I'm making a bold statement!

Michael Pineda - Get to know him

UPDATE (6/11): Well Pineda had a rough outing for the first time in his rookie season on Saturday night against the Tigers.  The Tigers beat the Mariners 8-1, and Pineda lasted 5.1 IP allowing 8 hits, 6 runs while walking 1 and striking out 4.  Pineda is now 6-4 on the year with a 2.72 ERA and is winless in his last 4 starts.  The Mariners in each of Pineda's last 3 starts have provided him with 3 total runs, 1 in each game.  He's pitched well enough to have won his two previous starts as he allowed 3 runs in those 2 starts as the Mariners lost 3-1 and 2-1 in those games.

Look Out For Brett Lawrie

UPDATE (6/8): The Blue Jays were going to promote Brett Lawrie to the big leagues this week, but that promotion will have to wait til about mid-July as Lawire is out with a fractured left hand.  The injury happened back on May 31st, when we reported Lawrie left the game with after being hit by a pitch.  He will be out at least 2-3 weeks. According to MLB.com : The 21-year-old third baseman was hitting .354 with 15 home runs and 49 RBIs in 52 games this season. He also had 19 doubles and an impressive .415 on-base percentage while stealing 11 bases. The latest development comes as a major blow to Lawrie, who was on the verge of being called up to big leagues at the time of his injury. General manager Alex Anthopoulous described the promotion as being "close" and it was expected he would debut in Baltimore on June 3.

Mark Teixeira Watch - Started at 1B for Yanks

VIDEO Tonight in his first at bat against the Red Sox Jon Lester, Yankee first baseman Mark Teixeira took a fastball off the knee cap and was forced to leave the game.  You could actually hear him scream as soon as he got hit, and his faced showed a lot of pain.  Tex currently sits at 18 home runs and 41 rbi and while his average is down to .258, his on base is still .368, right around his career average.  First base has been strong this year, but there are not many options remaining in many leagues.  Currently, the list of top 25 first basemen that are under 75% owned in Yahoo leagues: Justin Smoak - 44% Mark Trumbo - 34% Mitch Moreland - 65% Aubrey Huff - 61% Freddie Freeman - 24% Brett Wallace - 20% Carlos Pena - 53% If you own Teixeira, let us know who is available and we will let you know who to replace him with if necessary Stories ESPN Yankees - MLB Hardball Talk Baseball Nation New York Daily News Tweets @DKnobler Teixeira much better than expected.

Zach Britton - Get to know him

UPDATE: Zach has not earned a win since May 1 but it is not all his fault.  The Orioles have scored just 18 runs in the last 6 games that Britton has started.  His last two starts have not been all that great allowing 11 earned runs in just 10.2 innings pitched.  The previous 4 starts he allowed just 6 earned runs in 27.1 innings.  One of those starts was against the Yankees and he held them to 6 hits and 1 unearned run over 7 innings at Camden Yards.  Even with the two bad starts, his era is just 3.33 and he has a 2.60 era at home.  Britton is still a Fantasy Worthy pitcher, and if you do not own him, look to steal him off someones roster with a low ball offer.  He can help keep a team ERA and WHIP down, and should finish the season with 11-14 wins.

Texas Rangers - Team Of The Week (5/30-6/5)

When the week started there was no tighter division than the AL West, with the Rangers in first just a game ahead of the Angels, and a game and a half over the Athletics and Mariners.  But with a 6-1 week the Rangers have given themselves some breathing room at the top of the AL West.  Getting back Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz just two weeks ago has been such a boost in the Rangers lineup and is the key to running away with the division. The Rangers week consisted of a 3 game series with the Rays in Tampa Bay and then a trip to Clevland for a 4 game series with the Indians, not exactly an easy road trip. In game 1 against the Rays, the Rangers offense exploded for 20 hits in an 11-5 win.  Of those 20 hits the Rangers hit 5 doubles and 4 home runs.  Rays starter Wade Davis only lasted 2.2 IP and was charged with 12 hits and 7 earned runs, just an awful outing as he was not fooling anyone.  7 of the 9 starters for the Rangers had multiple hits in the game, including Mitch Moreland,

Can Erik Bedard Be An Elite Fantasy Pitcher in 2011? YES!

This story was originally posted back on March 11, and it seems to be coming true!.  Since Bedard started the season losing his first four starts, he has gone 3-0 over his next six.  During this stretch, Bedard has allowed just 6 earned runs in 39.1 innings of work, while striking out 35 and walking just 9!  He also went on a run of 20 innings pitched without giving up a run.  Part of his success has been keeping the ball in the park.  During his 0-4 start of the 2011 season, Bedard surrendered 7, yes 7 home runs in just 18.2 innings.  He has only allowed 1 long ball since April 20th and it was during his last start on May 31. Bedard is currently just 51% owned in Yahoo leagues and should seriously be considered if you are looking for help in your rotation.  Remember, this guy once struck out 221 batters in a single season and has not finished a season with an ERA above 3.76 since 2005!  If you think you could use him, leave a comment and we will let you know if you are making the ri

"You're not going to walk your way out of a slump like this, so I'm trying to be aggressive," Uggla said. "It's all timing. I've just got to get my foot down. If I get my foot down, be on time, everything will fall into place. It almost seems like it's that easy." Now Uggla is tied for 7th among second basemen in HR so the power is still there, but of those power hitting second basemen, Uggla is the only one with less than 18
