Oddly enough, there are a handful of talented pitchers throwing, but their matchups are not necessarily outstanding. Unfortunately, the hitters are equally suppressed, with the exception of a few lineups that should breakout. Currently, we are

The new week brings a new set of series, which should be welcomed by a handful of players that are experiencing their first miniature slumps of the season. Thankfully, this presents a buying opportunity. Currently, we are using

Staff ‘aces’ are throwing against weaker offenses, and high-strikeout arms will meet – miss – high-strikeout bats. Unfortunately, weather appears bound to play a factor in Sunday’s games. Currently, we are using xFIP and wOBA simply to

The same players that have been fighting to rebound remain on watch to finally break through, while some of the weaker pitchers are lucky to be placed in a favorable matchup, yet again. Unfortunately, this leads to uncertainty

One of the most noteworthy storylines of the day is the continuation of the early trend for the 2016 season – that is, two more top pitching prospects will be making their Major League debuts. Currently,
