Stream Team: Navigating Trade Routes
The Blue Jays brilliantly orchestrated two trades to end up with Colby Rasmus. The key player in those trades that wound up in St. Louis was Edwin Jackson, and he’s primed to make his first start with his new team on Friday. Does the AL-to-NL move put him on our Stream Team for the Daily ...

It’s the week of the MLB Trading Deadline, and yesterday we witnessed a flurry of moves involving the Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox, and St. Louis Cardinals.

2011 American League Trade Deadline Discussion
We dissected the NL trade landscape in an earlier article, and now we’ll tackle the Junior Circuit.

Friday Player Matchups: Petcole Hamels

Friday Player Matchups: Petcole Hamels
I’m going to start Cole Hamels in the Friday MLB Hit and Run. Hole Camels is 2-1 in Petco with a 1.57 ERA. Add to that the Padres are just not very adept at hitting the ball and you have the makings of a nice start. C Mike Napoli: He is 2 for 5 against ...

Big Puma Stalks Morton: Matchups For April 4th
There are only six games slated for today and no pitching options you’ll be falling over yourself to insert into your lineup on FanDuel.  Brandon Beachy and Ivan Nova both are rookies and have little to no history with the hitters they are facing which often favors the pitcher. I like the Yankees rookie just ...
