MLB - Value Index - Tuesday, July 16

Man what fireworks from the Dodgers last night! They paid off in a big way, as did the Red Sox, Indians, Tigers and Blue Jays, if you had them. Rick Porcello??? Ehhhh..... But we are back at it again tonight with a full slate of MLB action. Before…

MLB - Value Index - Monday, July 15

What a weekend of baseball! The Angels and their first home game in the wake of their fallen teammate, the Rays almost throwing the first-ever combined perfect game, Coors going nutso on Satuday and Sunday, there was some men's tennis match,…

MLB - Value Index - Friday, July 12

I kind of get used to being away from a computer during the All-Star Break. No fantasy, no writing committment, and can just chill. It's the same for my summer breaks away from my teaching job, you get used to not working. But at least…

MLB - Value Index - Friday, July 5

Hope everyone got their fill of fireworks, food and family on the 4th. Hopefully you caught some baseball, too. The slates were odd on Thursday for FanDuel, they split the games up all over the place, thus no Index for the Fourth. But…

MLB - Value Index - Wednesday, July 3

If you watched any of the Rangers/Angels game last night, you could clearly see both teams did not have baseball on their minds. It was all about Tyler Skaggs and his unexpected death. There was no walk-up music, fans didn't know when…

MLB - Value Index - Tuesday, July 2

Well, I think we are all, or at least were all, in shock about the Tyler Skaggs news on Monday. He was 27, recently married and a budding young pitcher, and he passed away earlier in the day. It's a sad story with some scary details soon…

MLB - Value Index - Friday, June 28

Man, Jason Vargas is really annoying. The old man continues to make himself look "good" and avoid the regression bug. Stacking against him is so frustrating. I'll keep doing it because I am balls deep in stacking against him this year and…

MLB - Value Index - Wednesday, June 26 (Main)

First base is loaded on tonight's main slate of Hump Day Action. I can justify playing 5-6 guys from that position, but for the Index, I am picking the cheapest of the ones I like. You will see that shortly. But if I could only play 1B,…

MLB - Value Index - Tuesday, June 25

Today's 15-game slate is massive, and filled with all kinds of combinations of pitchers and stacks that makes it tough to sift through, but also fun, like a mega puzzle. We have some really bad pitchers against left-handed hitters that you…

MLB - Value Index - Monday, June 24

We are in the last week of June and the All-Star Break is a mere 3 weeks or so away. The baseball season is quickly going by and before we know it, preseason football will be starting (can't wait, by the way). But right now we have perfect…

MLB - Value Index - Friday, June 21

June is flying by quickly and summer is officially here. Texas is going to be very hot again today as temps and heat indexes rise once again. It was very tolerable and somewhat comfortable temperatures most of this month, but then boom, prefaces…
