The Marlins called up Yamamoto and not Gallen. Why? Are the cracked? Are they tanking? Is something else going on? Hint: we will discuss the 40-man roster. How long will Brett Anderson last as a usabl...
Peter Alonso has been mashing up a storm for the Mets. Will it continue? Adam Eaton has been solid. Enrique Hernandez just hasn't been anything special. Eloy Jimenez is blasting away, and all of a sud...

Luzardo and Puk finally took the hill in a game that mattered. Bundy has cut the homers, and success has followed. Since his first pitch, Griffin Canning has looked like he belonged. I still can't bel...
Chase Anderson, are there concerns? Homers have been an issue for Bieber. Is there reason to be bullish with Flaherty? Fried has been solid for the Braves, but... Jon Gray continues to befuddle the ba...
Jake Bauers has been awful. Are those Bobby Bradley footsteps we're hearing? Asdrubal and Encarnacion are two veterans who are producing. What the hell is going on with Tommy La Stella and Tom Murphy?...
Let's play a game. I'm going to list the names of the arms in today's piece, but without any context. Some of the names listed are moving on up (Jefferson style). Some of the names listed are heading ...
David Dahl is on fire while Paul Goldschmidt isn't. Grandal and Nicky Lopez are going in different directions. Which Marte - Ketel or Starling - is performing better? Is Ohtani ready to take off? Jorg...
Let's talk arms. Bassitt is slumping. Hill is allowing a ton of homers. Gonzales has hit the skids. Kelly hasn't performed as well as expected. Lauer has been solid. Have you noticed? Lester is postin...
Chirinos provides enough to be of mixed league consideration. Davies is surging, but should you care? German has a couple of rough outings. Is the dream dead? Heaney has been sharp in two outings with...
It's June. The lure of fantasy football is calling you, the Siren's song floating through your ear canal whispering --- PPR... Are you still all in with your fantasy baseball season, or has your mind ...
The Astros called up an outfielder last week, and it wasn't Alvarez or Tucker. The Orioles have brought up Chance Sisco. Here it comes... should you take a chance on him? Who is this David Fletcher fe...
With about one-third of the season completed we should have a good idea of our team strengths and weaknesses in roto categories. Understanding the overall makeup of our rosters and identifying those w...
Shaun Anderson isn't stepping up. Archer used to. Can he again? The million-dollar question is... what is wrong with Trevor Bauer? Chirinos and Eflin are solid hurlers, but which one, if either, shoul...
Men are macho. Get a gaggle of men together, what the hell is a gaggle anyway?, and you will see one fella try to out macho the next guy nearly every time. Whichever fella has bigger biceps, a faster ...
The Pirates are calling up the future in Mitch Keller. We don't know how long he will be up, but he brings with him a good deal of fantasy intrigue. Wil Myers hasn't lived up to expectations. Is that ...
Some folks love the home run. They can't get enough of it. They love watching majestic 450-foot fly balls arch into the seats, sent skyward by men with massive muscles. To others, they would prefer to...

Ray Flowers takes a look at the bump. Alcantara is coming off a shutout. Does it matter? Is Buehler all the way back? How have things gone in Anaheim for rookie Griffin Canning? Eickhoff has hit a spe...
