3:50+: C: 4...1B: 4...2B: 3...SS: 3...3B: 3...OF: 6
 
**David Fry has been, in the immortal words of Buster Poindexter, Hot Hot Hot!!!.. 5 HRs, .410 avg, 1.378 OPS in the last 21 days!!
**Massey is hurt now but had been great since him April 19th call up
**The top SP's are a surprise.... Only Fried was expected to be at the top of the board and Sale, no one knew what to expect. 
 
And the Not-So-Hot over the last 5 weeks (6-10)
C: B. Naylor (1.36/30), Y. Diaz (1.54/40)
1B: K. Manzardo (1.62/34), M. Busch (2.25/63)

**A few big names that a lot of you (including me!) have been counting on this year....  Riley, Albies, Altuve, Machado...  c'mon guys!! 
**Can Abrams turn it around after his HOT start? 
**Harris has been particularly disappointing after his promising 2023 campaign
**It's actually amazing Kopech has 63 points in the last 5 weeks... I don't think the White Sox have a win since the Bush Administration!  
 
Good luck in Week 11....  
Reminder, records after Week 12 are the determining factor for the 2025 Redraft positioning (unless you make the playoffs). 
 
All the best!

A few thoughts: 
**Shohei is Can't-Miss baseball....  just like Bo Jackson was!
**Rooker and Kepler?...  ride the heatwave.
**Bohm, out of ____ (Don;t Google, check below for the answer), has been killin it...  nice to see him coming around after his brief success a couple of years ago.

**G Torres was a sleeper for a lot of people (yours truly included) and he just hasn;t done much 
**C Bassitt, it;s OK to start the season now!!  
**Yordan/Olson/Seager...  this trio is likely to get it going but how many games have they cost you in your quest for the title?!?
MATH TIME: A. Bohm (94pts) > Olson (27) + Seager (27) + Alvarez (39)
 
How are the Rookies doing? (position rank)
C: A. Wells (35)
1B: M. Busch (15), N. Schanuel (33), K. Manzardo (called up May 6th)

RP: M. Miller (9)
Biggest suprises here:
**Andy Pages: what a great waiver pickup thus far, can it keep going? 
**Michael Busch: started out like a house on fire, cooled as of late....  let's see how he handles some adversity. 
**Jared Jones: seeminly came out of nowhere (actually, Whittier, CA!), brilliant thus far! 

Good luck in Week 7!!

Some Thoughts Through 4-Weeks

04/24/24
We are 4 weeks in....  that is 20% of the way to the Playoffs!  

As they say at The Masters, "Moving day is upon us!" 

Let's take a quick look at some of the "underperformers"
 
J. Walker: 1.53/29... back in AAA, only 21 so there's still time
N. Castellanos: 1.55/34... livin off the past right now
J. Outman: 1.75/35... he's gonna be Out, man, unless he gets it going soon!
B. Buxton: 1.90/38... just realizing the season has started!
J. Kelenic: 2.00/32... maybe he was never that good
N. Jones: 2.09/46... where is the 2023 Jones? 
R. Arozarena: 2.18/48...  3-extra base hits and a .154 avg will get you banned in 7 states! 
Julio: 2.41/53... the NW is cold in April!  
W. Langford: 2.43/51... what did we expect, a Kevin Maas start??
G. Springer: 2.57/54... Father Time is undefeated 
C. Carroll: 2.91/64... believed his own hype?
A. Judge: 2.95/65... exactly 3 multi hit games out of 24
A. Hays: 0.83/15.... on the IL now
P. Meadows: 1.50/30... his spring-stroke hasn't translated to the real-season stroke

And now a quick look at some of the top hitters broken down.... 
 
Top 15 Hitters Week 1-4 (min 13 games)
  1. M. Ozuna: 5.40....  surprising me as the top hitter! 
  2. Elly: 4.90... this kid is unreal.. exciting, fun... very Henderson-esque! 
  3. CJ Abrams: 4.89... he is the under-the-radar Elly! 
  4. M. Betts: 4.82... did you know he is a good bowler too?
  5. Shohei: 4.77... gambing allegations, friend stealing, married, moving teams, moving leagues and STILL a Top 5! ... oh, he had TJ surgery too!! 
  6. W. Contreras-MIL: 4.70... a madman to begin the year
  7. T. O'Neill: 4.67... I guess the key is to get out of STL
  8. J. Soto: 4.64... did anyone had doubt he woiuld be great in NY?
  9. O. Albies: 4.40... should be back from the IL soon... 
  10. A. Garcia: 4.39... might be the most underappreciated hitter in baseball .... and he is yoked out of his mind! 
  11. L. Gurriel: 4.33... always had the talent, is this the year?
  12. J. Westburg: 4.30... love this kid... like Rocky V: Heart and Fire! 
  13. Gunnar: 4.24... he is already in the one-name category like Mesi, Ronaldo and Bugs! 
  14. J. Naylor: 4.24... How's that Clevinger deal looking now, Padres?....  by the way, Cleveland also reveived G. Arias in that deal! 
  15. K. Marte: 4.22... another underrated hitter that keeps on keepin on!

Pickup Schedule

08/11/23
ATTENTION
 
RD 1 pickups will be posted at 9:00am EST (6;00am PST) on Saturday morning.
 
Unfortunately, I have to leave early for a volleyball tourney on Saturday.
 
RD 2: posted Sunday at 9:00pm EST (6:00pm PST)
This will allow two things: 
1. You can see if it looks like you will make the playoffs
2. Allows you to account for injuries that happen on Saturday night/Sunday so your pickups can be made with accurate information since there are no pickups for 2 weeks. 

Good luck and enjoy the weekend!

Through Two Weeks

04/19/22
Team of the Week
Week 1: Levittown Pride, F. Priolo, EL 14, 355
Week 2: 1 Rockin Redbirds, G. Siebern, EL 99, 389
 
Out of the Gate Fast...  Slow Starts.... Good Week, Bad Week...
Trying to figure out players this early is a big challenge.
 
The All 2-Week Team (min 4 games, ppg, with comments)
C: J. Heim 7.00... who?
1B: B. Belt 5.43... enjoy now, pray for health!
2B: J. Chisholm 5.29... jazzin it up on South Beach
SS: O. Miller 5.88... hopefully he lasts as long as Barney Miller
3B: N. Arenado 7.00... went to the same High School as Matt Chapman, and my wife taught there.
OF: Y. Alvarez 5.80... creaky knees don't matter when you jog around the bases
OF: S. Suzuki 5.50... imported to America, he is exporting the ball to the stands regularly
OF: B. Nimmo 4.83... the Captain is in charge!
SP: C. Bassitt 21.00... changes places, same top-level results
SP: A. Manoah 20.00... he has wiffle-ball stuff
SP: T. Megill. 20.00... 4th year out of Arizona, the long ball killed him last year, 11k 0bb
RP: J. Romano 72pts... came out of nowhere last year
RP: T. Rogers 60pts... trades are a good thing
 
Some tough starts for players that are expected to be big contributors:
OF: J. Winker 1.90... will be interesting to see can if he can hit lefties
OF: F. Reyes 1.11... 7% BB/K ratio, 36% K rate
OF:  J. Gallo 1.11.... see above
C: Y. Grandal 1.86... .158 BABIP, that will turn around
1B: M. Sano 1.60... same guy, same spot, nothing to see here
1B: J. Votto 1.27... has Father Time finally caught up?
2B: C. Biggio 0.57... dad?, DAD??
SS: D. Swanson 1.58... 20 K's in 42 AB's, guess he wants to set the record!
 
And finally, the rookies... 
How are they holding up to Big League pitching (well, unless they were facing recently retired Jake Arrieta)
1B: S. Torkelson 3.00
SS: B. Witt Jr 1.63
SS: CJ Abrams 1.67
SS: J. Pena 3.22
SS: B. Stott 1.25
OF: S. Suzuki 5.50
SP: M. Gore 9.00
SP: H. Greene 11.50
SP: N. Lodolo 3.00
Some bumps-in-the-road are to be expected... will be exciting to see how they progress.
 
We are back to the regular schedule for the rest of the season starting in Week 4: April 25-May 1 (7 days, 3 opponents, 9 games)
 
Good luck and thanks for being a part of Mr. Sports!

Preseason Update

02/28/22
Good morning/afternoon

First, fighting through Covid Seasons... now a lockout... Us baseball fans have been through a lot!  

Right now, MLB/MLBPA are meeting and I hope they strike a deal but I'm not holding my breath!!  

In the event they do have a deal tonight, cutdowns and the redraft will remain the same.

In the unfortunate event that they do NOT reach a deal tonight, we will move cutdowns back "until further notice".
This will allow trading to continue.

My recommendation:
Enter your cutdowns for your team(s) today. You can always change them.
Once a deal is struck, we will be moving quickly to get cutdowns done and the redraft started.

Any questions, let me know.
 
Thanks for being a part of Mr. Sports!

Four Weeks in....

04/26/21
We are already FOUR Weeks into the season.... hard to believe!

There are some winners, some losers and some just terrible play by what we thought would be topp players.

All Star Team
C: C. Kelly (4.19).... finally arriving?
1B: M. Olson (4.16)... after a slow start, en fuego now!
2B: C. Taylor (3.94)... play the man, he keeps raking! 
SS: F Tatis Jr (4.80)... absolute stud!
3B: J. Turner (4.60)... he can flat out hit a baseball, COVID be damned!
OF:R. Acuna (5.53)... out to prove he deserves top billing
OF: M. Trout (5.06)... yup, same great player, year after year
OF: B. Buxton (4.67)... may be finally living up to the hype
DH: JD Martinez (5.29)... he's back!!!
SP: J DeGrom (23.50)... looking like Pedro, he's unhittable
SP: D. Duffy (20.00)... shades of 2016
SP: C. Burnes (19.25)... burnin' the competition since 2020!
RP: M. Melancon (102pts)... wasn't even named closer until the season started
RP: J. McGee (100pts)... who knew he was even on the SF team until he got to 4 saves?
 
Shockingly excellent thus far:
Y Gurriel (3.90), J. Aguilar (3.40)
R. McMahon (3.76), J. Lowrie (3.75), J. Wendle (3.74)
E. Escobar (4.00), K. Bryant (3.95), E. Longoria (3.39)
J.  Winker (4.38), M. Canha (3.90)
S Ohtani (4.42)
S. Matz (18.50), M. Boyd (17.60), K. Gibson (16.60)
M. Barnes (75pts), C. Valdez (74pts), El Class (72ptsA
 
All Dud Team
C: G. Sanchez (2.25ppg)... outside of Game 1, he has done zilch!
1B:J. Bell (2.25ppg)... maybe 2019 was an aberration
2B: C. Biggio (2.29ppg).. new ball, can't hit
SS: G. Torres (1.85)... wow, just awful, will he turn it around?
3B: M. Chapman (2.56ppg)... as Joe Namath would say "struggling"
OF: M. Conforto (2.00)... anytime Mikey!
OF: C. Blackmon (2.11)... maybe last year's swoon was real
OF: M. Ozuna (2.14)... this is a big surprise, this guy can hit
DH: C. Frazier (1.35)... down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier!
SP: L. Castillo (7.80)... one good outing out of five, not what we expected
SP: B. Snell (7.80)... change of scenery, doesn't make a difference
SP: K. Maeda (9.00)... a little surprising since he was so dominant in 2020
RP: A. Colome (41pts)... may have lost his job already
RP:E. Diaz (48pts)... NY not good, few chances
 
Shockingly bad thus far
M. Sano (2.27), D. Smith (2.20)
G. Lux (2.27), O Albies (2.63), DH LeMahieu (2.68)
D. Swanson (1.71), F. Lindor (2.24)
A.Bohm (2.43), E. Suarez (2.75)
J. Soler (2.40), M. Kepler (2.71), J. Gallo (2.81)
K. Hendricks (9.00), D Bundy (9.60), Z. Wheeler (9.75)
G. Holland (50pts), W. Smith (55pts)

Who will bounce back?
Who will come-back to the pack?
And who will continue their assention towards stardom? or assent towards drop-dom?

Good luck in Week 5!

Brian
 

OPENING DAY!!!!!!

04/01/21
Happy Opening Day!!!!

Make sure your lineups are set by 1:05pm EST (10:05am PST).

There already is a rain-out today, BOS vs BAL...  hopefully that's the only one.

SCHEDULE REMINDER
The first 3-weeks are short weeks....
Week 1: 4.01 thu 4.06 (Thur-Tues)
Week 2: 4.07 thu 4.12 (Wed-Mon)
Week 3: 4.13 thu 4.18 (Tue-Sun)
Week 4: back to normal... Monday thu Sunday
ALSO... instead of playing 9 games vs 3-opponents, you will play 6 games vs 2-opponents.. This is only fair since the first few weeks are short weeks.

PICKUP SCHEDULE
All pickups will be posted at 11am EST on the specified day.
Week 1: RD 1 4.5, RD 2 4.6
Week 2: RD 1 4.11, RD 2 4.12

Week 4-end of season: every Sat and Sun morning.
I will send reminders to make sure you do not miss a pickup date

TRADES
They will work just like preseason.
I will approve all trades immediately.
Send me a quick note that there is a trade in the system and I will Pass/Veto the trade. If I do Veto a trade, I will send a note to both sides letting you know why.

SCORING
Please be patient the first couple of days.. There are usually a few things that have to be reprogrammed because of the scoring feed.

ENJOY Opening Day!!!

Best of luck to you!!!

THANK YOU for being a part of Mr. Sports!!

Baseball Almost back???

05/27/20
Good morning!
 
I hope you all are staying safe and healthy!
 
Who knows if the baseball season will happen but I do think some sort of baseball will be played this year.... 
 
As for the fantasy season, just not sure what that will look like until something  official happens....
BUT I do have a couple of thoughts around it....
 
For ease of math, let's say the following:
82 game season (possibly fewer games)
Roughly a 13-week regular season
All regional play with limited travel
Universal DH (this is here to stay beyond 2020, in my humble opinion)
30-player active roster, 20-player taxi squad
14 team postseason in October.
 
13 week fantasy season
Unfortunately, there is no room for a Super Tourney
Three basic scenarios for a fantasy season:
1. 9 week regular season, 2 weeks each round of the playoffs (our usual, just half a year)
2. 11 week regular season, only 1 week each round of the playoffs
3. 10 week regular season, 1 week each round  of the playoffs with each week consisting of 11 days (Week 10 would only be 6 days)

As for money, I do not think it is fair that everyone pay full price for this season with it being a shortened version of the season.
 
There are so many variables that are out there, and one of the basics is the construction of your fantasy roster.
SP's most likely will be on a strict pitch count early in the year so expect 2-4 weeks of barely 5 innings. That's 1/3 of our season.

That all being said, I want the season to be fun and exciting!!!
Below are the two ideas that I am thinking about for this 2020 season.
 
1. Your league fees will be paid for 2021, with this season playing for around a 5-10% credit, no cost to you.
Example: usual $1000 to the winner, would be $50-$100 credit to the winner
 
2. Playing for some percentage of the money, say 20% for easy math
Example: $240 usual league fee, 20% which is $48, would go towards the prize pool...  winner would get $200 which is 20% of the $1000
 
For 2021, 20% of your fees would be paid and all you would need to pay is that 20% for the 2021 season.

Instead of Team of the Week, 5 top teams for Hitting, Pitching and Overall that week get "points" towards some type of prize of your choice at the end of the regular season.

Bottom line, I want to make the season fun, no matter what happens, that's assuming there is a season....
 
I love fantasy baseball so we will certainly do something fun!!! 

In the words of James Earl Jones in A Field of Dreams (one of my favorite movies):
"The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. it's a part of our past. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again"

Let's hope real baseball comes together and gets a season going.

Any feedback, ideas, suggestions, questions, whatever, reach out to me.
 
Also, check out the baseball homepage as I will keep that updated with any developments.
 
Stay healthy my friends!

All "I Bet You Forgot Where They Played" Team

05/05/20
Since MLB is still probably 2+ months away from starting (at least it is looking likely that they play some games this year), I figured to have a little fun.

The All "I Bet You Forgot Where They Played" Team
Here is mine, let me know yours. 
I'll post the best ones!! 

C: Mike Piazza-OAK in 2007
1B: Sean Casey-CLE in 1997
2B: Robbie Alomar-ARI in 2004
SS: Omar Vizquel-TOR in 2012
3B: Troy Galus-ARI in 2005
OF: Dale Murphy-COL in 1993
OF: Darryl Strawberry-SF in 1994
OF: Rickey Henderson-LAD in 2003
DH: Jim Thome-LAD in 2009
SP: Pedro Martinez-PHI in 2009
SP: Randy Johnson-SF in 2009
SP: Greg Maddux-LAD in 2006 and 2008
RP: Billy Wagner-BOS in 2009

Hope you are staying safe and healthy!

Happy Opening Day.... Well almost!!!

03/26/20
I hope you and yours are safe and healthy during these tough times
 
Today would have been Opening Day... 
Absolutely, one of my favorite days of the year!!
 
Would Shane Bieber have thrown a no-hitter?
Would Nico Hoerner pull a Tuffy Rhodes and hit 3 bombs?
Would Verlander have struck out 15?
 
Ahhhhh, the imagination runs wild!!! 
 
Hang tight, stay safe and we will get through this better than ever!! 
 
As I was watching Scott Van Pelt last night (by the way, the BEST in the business!), he interviewed Rob Manfred.
Here is a synopsis: 
**optimistic that things could get ramped up again by the middle of May
**probably not be able to play a full 162-games
**will need to be creative with the scheduling
**possibility of playing seven-inning doubleheaders is on the table.

This is certainly going to be a crazy season.... and I can't wait to get started!! 
 
As for Fantasy Baseball, we are trucking along.
 
**Redraft
I hope you all had as much fun as I did during the redraft.
Thank you for making it go so smoothly.
 
**Pickuos
They will start at the end of next week and most likely will be every Fri/Sat until the season starts... hopefully, this will give you a little something to look forward to each week.
 
**Trades
You are free to trade!!
Enter your trade into the system...send me a note letting me know a trade is in the system....  and I will process, just like preseason.
 
**Injured List (IL)
A player is only eligible if that  player is officially on the MLB IL
Some of you have asked if players like Sale, Thor, Severino will be eligbile because they are out for the year...  I am leaning against letting these players on since it might have affected redraft or trade decisions...  but I will give it due consideration.
 
**Drafts
Would you be interested in jumping in a 1-yr league draft for $50 or less?...  I'm thinking of ways to keep us entertained while not spending much money.....  if you would be interested, send me a quick note letting me know....  I think it would be fun having a couple of drafts per week for low stakes.
 
**Teams for Sale
Some excellent teams available
Check them out:
Mil Bears: EL 2
Detroit Stars: EL 9
Birm Black Barons; EL 14
Clev Buckeyes: EL 17
All Cubans: EL 18
Lincoln Stars: ML 6
All Nations: ML 12
SF Sea Lions: ML 14
 
Any questions, let me know.... 
And if you want to talk any baseball, I am all ears....  send me a note and let's talk!! 
 
Stay healthy!

Good  morning

First and foremost, I hope you are safe and staying healthy! 

I am sad the redraft is over....  I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

So now what?

Starting next week, there will be pickups... I will update the exact dates soon.
We will also continue to have pickups each week thereafter... hopefully, this will give you something to look forward to each week during these difficult times.

As for trades, feel free to enter them into the system and I will approve just like preseason.
Just send me a quick note letting me know that a trade is awaiting approval.

Thanks again for being a part of Mr. Sports.

Stay Healthy! 

Brian
