Talking Baseball

As you may know, I’m knee-deep in football for the magazine, so I thought I would take today to talk a little baseball. If you’re a fantasy baseball player, I’m sure you’ve been reading our fantasy baseball stuff this year and you’re familiar with new contributor Mike Gill.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
