The Closer Catch-Up: Breaking Brad

What a start to the season for the Brads of baseball. Closers Brad Hand, Brad Boxberger, and Brad Brach all rank inside the top 10 in saves after three weeks, and since they've allowed just four earned runs between them, you're staring at three of the most dominant closers to start the season. Boxberger and his 37% strikeout rate has been particularly impressive, whiffing at least one hitter in each of his seven one-inning appearances. That's come with a 2.54 K/BB ratio, and, more importantly, Boxberger has accomplished…

Bronze Points Ownership and Claims Report: Period 3-4

It’s still far too early to panic if your team is low in the standings, but at least we are starting to a gather a bit of data to work with. In general, it would be wise to wait a couple of more weeks to determine whether a player is addable or droppable. However, that luxury is not always afforded due to injuries and other factors.

Dynasty Dugout Mid-Season Keeper/Dynasty Rankings: Relief Pitchers

This will be the last installment of the mid-season dynasty rankings. I’ve saved the best for last, too. Yeah, right. Who am I kidding? Ranking relievers is more or less a crapshoot. You got your few elite options and then the rest is anyone’s guess. Over half of the relievers that were closers to start 2016 are either now in middle relief or retired. Below are the top 40 reliever options in dynasty leagues today. There are many guys you could debate here, and this list will probably change dramatically come spring time.…
