Outliers: Nick Pivetta is a Flyball’s Worst Enemy

With a string of solid early-season starts, Nick Pivetta has already become a fixture in deeper leagues. After his latest effort, Pivetta is on the verge of entering the fantasy prime time.

Now we dive into the men who get paid tens of millions of dollars a year to limit that offense. When it comes to pitching in fantasy baseball, everyone seems to have a different opinion. Some like grabbing their top few guys early, others grab their ace and wait, and some like to wait for several rounds before grabbing any at all. I find myself usually in one of those last two…

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

We've now covered every offensive position there is in these dynasty rankings. All that's left is starting pitchers and relievers. There's an old saying, "Pitching wins championships."
