    Tristan Cockcroft ESPN Fantasy Games

    While all the talk the past two nights revolved around Marlins rookie Anibal Sanchez's no-hitter, lost in the shuffle was the fact that Oliver Perez, one of 2004's biggest breakouts, actually stepped up with an inspiring outing for the Mets. He tosse...

    Tristan Cockcroft ESPN Fantasy Games

    It took 353 minor-league games for him and a season-ending shoulder injury to Jonny Gomes for it to happen, but Devil Rays top prospect Delmon Young finally made his major-league debut on Tuesday night. And what a debut it was, as the No. 1 pick over...
