Evan Longoria Watch: Plantar Fasciitis

UPDATE: Longoria will sit the rest of the weekend. Evan Longoria left today's game with an apparent leg injury. The Rays star third baseman had a great June with 8 home runs and 16 RBI while drawing 15 walks.  The Rays will struggle to stay competitive in the American League East without Longoria.

NBA Draft Recap

Anthony Bennett was the #1 overall pick, the first ever from Canada.  If he turns into Larry Johnson , then this pick was the right move, otherwise it just creates a log jam at the PF position with Tristan Thompson (also Canadian) and could even force him to play C which might not be the best for all parties involved.  Either way, with Anderson Varejao and Tyler Zeller at the C position there are really just 48 minutes for Thompson and Bennett to split.  It will take a while for a true rotation to develop but I don't see Bennett playing any more than 28 minutes per game, MAX, if everyone stays healthy or a trade occurs.  So as far as drafting Bennett?  Don't reach and don't rely on him.  Late draft pick with potential to help a lot more late in the season.  Tristan Thompson?  As long as he is the starter, his value goes unchanged because he can slide up to the C.  Varejao will probably be limited, to prevent injury, and traded because of his expiring contract so don't

NBA Draft Trades

Last night's NBA Draft was just one giant surprise.  Before the Cleveland Cavaliers were even on the clock, the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics laid out the framework for a blockbuster deal, that will land Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in Brooklyn.  Then after the Cavs used all 5 minutes to make their selection, it was not Nerlens Noel or Alex Len's name that was called, yet Anthony Bennett's.  Noel fell to the New Orleans Pelicans at the #6 slot, and before you could even imagine him and Anthony Davis playing together, he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, for JRUE HOLIDAY!  There were so many other deals happening between draft picks, it was nearly impossible to follow, so I will let you read HoopsWorld trade recaps , they make it a bit easier to understand.

Derek Holland Tosses a Two Hit CG/SO

Derek Holland was spectacular as he allowed only two hits and two walks while striking out seven. The Yankees were not able to register an extra base hit against Holland and registered only two at-bats with runners in scoring position. Mike Trout continued to crush the Tigers, going 4/5 with a double and run. Patrick Corbin remains 9-0 after suffering another no decision.  Corbin would like to follow Max Scherzer ’s footsteps and progress to 10-0, but Corbin’s teammates are offering little support. In Corbin’s last five starts, since he became 9-0, Corbin has pitched over seven innings four times, each of those times allowing two or fewer runs.

Fantasy Bloggers NBA Mock Draft

Nerlens Noel or Alex Len?  Who will the Cleveland Cavaliers draft with the #1 overall selection in tonight's NBA Draft?  Will they get their wish and trade it for an established player or will teams realize just how "weak" this draft class is and hold off on making those types of deals?  This is what makes today one of the most entertaining days of the year.  This is the day Kobe became a Laker, Memphis traded Kevin Love for O.J. Mayo and Rondo went from the Suns to the Celtics. Together with bloggers from Rotoinfo , HecmanHoops and Daily Backcourt we put together our very own mock draft.

Rays Hit Back to Back to Back Jacks

Last night featured just 4 Major League Baseball games.  Instead of our usual Box Score Rundown, we are going to focus on a player from each team that we think is worth buying at their low low cost today, and which player you should be looking to flip immediately, thanks to them playing way beyond their ability.  Esmil Rogers allowed back to back to back jacks to James Loney , Wil Myers and Sam Fuld which helped the Rays end the Blue Jays 11 game win streak.  The only run Toronto would score, would be in the 8th inning on a fielders choice when Jose Bautista grounded out to short with the bases loaded.  Jeremy Hellickson was great for Tampa Bay allowing just 1 hit over 7 innings, winning his 6th.  Fernando Rodney earned his 16th save.

Rangers Sweep Cardinals in St. Louis

The Texas Rangers continued their excellent road play this weekend, improving to 22-17, after sweeping baseballs best.  The St. Louis Cardinals, who are arguably the leagues best offensive team, managed just 7 runs off the Rangers pitchers.  Starters Derek Holland , Martin Perez and Nick Tepesch allowed all 7 runs as the bulpen pitched 7.1 shutout innings.  Joe Nathan earned his 23rd, 24th and 25th save this weekend.  The Rangers beat Adam Wainwright and Shelby Miller .  Allen Craig was the only Cardinal to have 2 RBI this weekend.

Blue Jays Flocking Towards Top of American League East

The Toronto Blue Jays are 15-4 in the month of June and are winners of 11 straight.  They have outscored opponents 91-35 this month in wins, including 3 shutouts.  On top of that, they are expected to get Jose Reyes back as soon as Thursday!  Reyes has not played since April 12, when he injured himself on a late slide into second base.  Reyes did his .395 over his first 38 ABs of the season, so if he can get hot again, and fast, the Boston Red Sox better look out.  The Blue Jays are now just 5 games out of first place and the two teams will meet this coming weekend!

Can Matt Joyce Be Trusted?

In 2011, Matt Joyce played in 141 games for the Tampa Bay Rays.  It was his first full season of action and he was solid, hitting .271 that season with 32 doubles, 19 home runs and 75 RBI.  He even added 13 stolen bases.  But his June and July splits were terrible, batting .173 in June and .184 in July.  Last season he pulled the same stunt, with an average in the high .280's after May, but June and July saw .250 and .222 averages.  He finished last season batting .241.  Joyce is off to a hot start again, already with 14 home runs and 40 runs scored, but is that .299 average in May the only thing keeping him from being a .240 hitter?

Which Team to Stream a Pitcher Against: Part 1/2

Streaming pitchers has been a fantasy tool for as long as I can remember. Some owners prefer streaming an entire pitching staff. Others prefer streaming a handful of pitchers throughout the season. Then, there are the lucky few who grabbed Patrick Corbin , Matt Harvey , and Shelby Miller as their last pitchers and will not be forced to stream any of their pitchers. This article is geared to help focus on potential stream targets. It is hard to guess what a starting pitcher is going to do from one game to the next, especially since the starting pitcher you are considering streaming is on waivers for a reason. One way to try to choose whom to stream is by focusing on the starting pitcher’s next opponent. Most fantasy owners seem to think the Astros and Marlins are the ideal candidates to stream a starting pitcher against. But, is that the case?

Chris Davis Chasing 73

Chris Davis Chasing 73

In 1998 Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa took sports fans by storm, going back and forth, trying to break the MLB single season home run record.  At that time the record was 61 and it was held by Roger Maris since 1961.  On September 7, 1998, Big Mac, 34 years old, slugged home run number 61, off Mike Morgan of the Chicago Cubs, tying the record.  It was an amazing thing to witness because Sammy Sosa was on the opposing team with 58 home runs.  The following day, Mark broke the record, against the Cubs still, off Steve Traschel.  It was wasn't until September 13 that Sosa hit #61 and on that same day he also hit #62.  Mark McGwire would finish that season with 70 home runs, setting a record no one thought would ever be broken.  Sosa finished with "just" 66 home runs.  Fast forward to 2001, just 3 seasons later, Barry Bonds at age 36, breaks McGwire's record while walking 177 times, giving him 33 less official plate appearances.    What Chris Davis is doing this sea

Get To Know Him - Jeff Locke

UPDATE (6/20): Jeff Locke on Wednesday night threw another 7 shutout innings against a very dangerous Cincinnati Reds offense. He left the game with a 1-0 lead but Jay Bruce tied it up in the bottom of the 9th, with a solo home run off of Jason Grilli, who blew his first save of the year. Locke is still 6-1 but has lowered his ERA to 2.01. Of his 15 starts, he has allowed 0 runs in 7 of them.

Yahoo Fantasy Sports always seems to be behind the ball with player owned percentages.  This is both a gift and a curse.  It leads you to believe that a lot of quality fantasy players are available, but typically the players in your league are smarter than the average Yahoo player.  There must be a ton of free fantasy leagues that go untouched after drafting.  Let's take a look at the top fantasy baseball players that are owned in 75% or less of Yahoo leagues, and hopefully available to add to your roster!

The Future of Baseball is Bright, Very Bright

With the MLB All-Star game next month, there is going to be a ton of debate on talk radio, podcasts, and blogs about which players deserved their roster spot and which players didn't.  But there is no doubt that the FUTURE of the league is headed in the right direction and loaded with young talented stars.  Taking a look at the top players under the age of 25, and seeing how big of an impact they make on their Big League ballclubs proves this.

Troy Tulowitzki Broken Rib - Out 4-6 Weeks

UPDATE: Tulo did indeed break a rib yesterday and will be sidelined until after the All-Star break.  This is a huge blow to the Rockies lineup and to your fantasy roster.  SS is the hardest position to replace, especially a player of this caliber!  Jonathan Herrera should slide over to SS for a while and he is hitting .293 over the last 3 seasons in 164 ABs when playing SS.  Josh Rutledge will most likely be called up and get playing time as well, but being demoted once already this season, he better prove he is ready for the big time! Not only did the Colorado Rockies lose to the Washington Nationals today, but they might be without 3 of their best hitters for a while.  Troy Tulowitzki left the game after making a diving play, Carlos Gonzalez got hit with a line drive while in the on deck circle, but all news on that is positive, and Dexter Fowler injured his hand.  All 3 guys are impact players so monitor this situation VERY closely!

Smiles by Lyles

Not much has gone right for the Houston Astros over the past couple of seasons, but they do have a couple of kids to keep the fan base hopeful for the future.  Jordan Lyles is one of those guys and his game log has been unbelievable.  Minus a 4 inning outing against the Texas Rangers, he has allowed just 3 earned runs once.  In those 8 other starts, Lyles ERA is just 2.29!  Last night he dominated the Seattle Mariners, striking out 10 over 7 innings in a 6-1 Astros victory.  This was his 3rd start out of his last 4 in which he finished the 7th inning.  At just 22 years old, Lyles has a bright future ahead of him.

Gerrit Cole Wins MLB Debut

With the first overall selection of the 2011 MLB draft, the Pittsburgh Pirates took UCLA pitcher Gerrit Cole .  The Yankees had drafted him at the bottom of the 2008 first round but he refused to sign...some have to wonder what was going through his mind at the time.  It took Cole just 200 minor league innings to make his debut and he looked good both pitching, and swinging the bat!

Finally, Giancarlo Stanton, Has Come Back...to...Miami

The last time fantasy owners and Miami Marlins fans got to see Giancarlo Stanton play baseball was April 29th.  Over the 36 games he missed, the Marlins went just 11-25, beating the New York Mets 6 times, Marcell Ozuna , Derek Dietrich and Ed Lucas made their MLB debuts, and Logan Morrison returned.  With the names I just mentioned, the Marlins DO have a chance to be a better team, as long as Stanton and Morrison stay healthy.  Giancarlo went 1 for 4 in his return with a strike out as the Marlins lost 6-1 to the Brewers.  Ricky Nolasco got hit pretty hard over 5.1 innings allowing 10 hits, including Rickie Weeks 5th home run of the season.  Yovani Gallardo was excellent, winning his 5th game, tossing 8 shutout innings allowing 4 hits while striking out 4 Marlins.

Fantasy Baseball Week 11 - Preferred Pitching Matchups

Gerrit Cole will make his MLB debut for the Pirates on Tuesday, June 11th against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants at home in Pittsburgh. The Philadelphia Phillies will get to add a DH starting Tuesday for a 3 games series in Minnesota against the Twins.  This should benefit Ben Revere , Delmon Young and John Mayberry Jr.. The Washington Nationals will also benefit, adding a designated hitter to their lineup on Friday for a 3 game series in Cleveland against the Indians.  My guess would be that Tyler Moore gets all the DH ABs, but keep an eye on their lineup for the entire weekend.

The Colorado Rockies were crushing the ball last night at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati as they racked up 20 hits and scored 12 runs.  Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki lead the offensive barrage combining to go 8 of 10 with 9 RBI and 6 runs scored.  CarGo homered in the 1st, 4th and 8th innings while Tulo homered in the 3rd and 8th.  Just for fun, Todd Helton added a home run of his and showed these young studs that the old man still got it.  Nolan Arenando picked up 4 hits of his own scoring 3 times.  The hits were coming to the Rockies so easily that Jon Garland even had 2 of them in a winning start.  The Reds were actually winning this game 3-1 after the first inning thanks to a Xavier Paul 3 run homer.  Colorado ended up winning 12-4 thanks to three 3 run innings.  The Rockies took 2 of 3 from the Reds.

MLB All-Star Voting - Early Results

With early returns in on the MLB All-Star voting, which will take place at Citi Field in Queen NY home of the New York Mets, there is plenty to laugh at.  This happens in every league with fan voting for these games but it is still fun to look at.  In the American League, things actually quite fair and only the outfield selections could really be in question.  But the National League is claerly over run by San Francisco Giants Fans.

Is Domonic Brown Turning Into Ken Griffey Jr.?

Ok, thats a stretch, but the sweet swinging lefty leads the National League in home runs, with 17, and has hit 10 of them in the last two weeks!  Last night Brown hit another bomb and added 2 other hits in a 7-2 Philllies victory over the Marlins, and raised his average to .291.  Kyle Kendrick tossed a complete game 6 hitter, allowing 2 earned runs and striking out 5.  He was our streaming pitcher of the day!   Ben Revere and Erik Kratz also had multi hit games for the Phils.  Marcell Ozuna continues to be the lone bright spot for the woeful Marlins, as he picked up his 16th RBI, but it will be fun to see a healthy Giancarlo Stanton in the lineup with him.

Fantasy Baseball Week 10 - Preferred Pitching Matchups

The Oakland Athletics will start the week in Milwaukee and lose their DH for 3 games.  Seth Smith will probably lose the most ABs, but Josh Reddick could get a day off so they can get Smith's bat in the lineup.  Chris Carter will most likely be used as a pinch hitter as they will not face any left handed starting pitchers.
