  2. First Game of The Season

    Opening Day is Opening Day, but the season for me really doesn't feel real until I am there in the stands in person and Saturday was that day for me. Game two of the season, Brewers' Marcum versus the Reds' Wood. The game itself was a good one, with Wood throwing a very pitch efficient, strike after strike type of performance. The young lefty is quickly showing he is among the brightest in an already talented Reds rotation with a lot of maturity for such a young pitcher. The Reds bats didn't disappoint ...

I was able to snag a pretty good special though as the Reds had a 'tailgate' offer where you could $35 tickets for $25 with a free $10 concessions voucher. Sweet, huh? Problem was though that as I sat directly in the sun (curious that so many people were choosing to stand in the shade, next to the misting fans) I chose to sit in the sun and baked. Hell, there was even some woman about two rows down, eight seats over who had ...
  5. I Hate The Fantasy Win Method

    Why do fantasy commissioners continue to use wins as a major part of the fantasy point equation? Let alone the actual MLB, but I have more faith in fans being able to determine how best to evaluate a player's worth in competition. We're not keeping track of these stats using the newspaper, we have a bevy of metrics to look at and we continue to choose the wrong one, often giving the most weight of points to it.

    I am in a 12 league head to head league where wins usually make or break ...
