  • Chris reveals that Jeter actually was born in New Jersey (although grew up in Michigan).
  • Aroldis Chapman hurt himself in the All-Star Game.
  • The Huston Street trade rumours just never go away.

Fantasy Notes: Paul Goldschmidt’s Slash Line Up

July 9, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Goldschmidt’s ISO is slightly below what he put up last year, he remains a DH waiting to happen (which won’t be easy as long as he’s a D-Back), and we wonder if we’ve seen the best he has to offer. With a flyball rate that just keeps dropping, it’s hard to envision him topping his 2013 homer total unless that trend reverses itself.

The Wire Troll: Stephen Drew Finds His Power Stroke

July 6, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Jones has had a rough weekend against the Pale Hose so far, but he came in red hot, batting nearly .310 in the last week. The rookie hasn’t received much ink so far, but it’s hard not to be impressed with the numbers he has quietly amassed in Em City. Jones is averaging over a hit per contest through 59 games and 215 at-bats, and while we’d like to see his walk rate closer to what it was in Triple-A, he’s managed to slightly reduce his strikeout rate since being promoted. The key to his game, though, is speed, and with a success rate like he has (17-of-18), any increase in his walk rate is going to translate into value.
