    If you want to say he slid late, I get it, but to call it dirty is illogical and irresponsible. If you watch the video you see his leg is down and when he hits the bag it pops up. People actually believe that he purposef

  • Always Be Looking For Fast Starters In Fantasy Baseball’s First Month

    By Sam McPherson

Staying the course generally equalizes everything out in the end, but smart fantasy team owners can capitalize on fast starts and fast finishes by paying attention to what’s going on every day in Major League Baseball play. It’s rare a fantasy owner can just draft a team right before Opening Day and make no changes to it all
