MLB News and Notes: Week of April 23

I usually do not record baseball games and watch them, but last Friday night was the exception. This was because the Dodgers were playing the Nationals, and the pitching matchup was Max Scherzer versus Clayton Kershaw. First, this was the first time two pitchers with three or more Cy Young Awards have matched up since 2006. Second, I took a little grief during the Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational when I took Scherzer with the eighth pick over Kershaw. At least for one night, Scherzer was just a bit better, as he allowed…

Bronze Points Ownership and Claims Report: Top 100 Teams vs. The Field

It is hard to believe we are already on the verge of entering Period 5 in the Fantrax Bronze Points Salary Cap Challenge game. And yet, barely 10% of all games have been played.

Bronze Points Ownership Report and New Player Claims

I’m old enough to remember when you would have no idea where your team stood in the standings until at least a week or two into the season. In a way, we were almost better off. Nowadays, you can see live standings from the first day of the season on. When I woke up on Friday and saw I was in last place in my Fantrax Roto league, I had to laugh. The truth is that one day is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Sure, it would be nice to get off to a quick start, but the important thing is to have the correct pieces…

Fantasy Baseball: Roto Salary Cap Roster

Well, folks, Opening Day is finally here! Fans all over the globe are optimistic about the upcoming season, and fantasy owners are arguably even more so.

Specifically, I will be looking at some player percentages and highlighting some players who could be worth a New Player Claim. Please remember that the 18 claims each team is allowed are to…
