  4. My predictions for the ALDS matchups

    Keith Law

    I'm of the opinion that most playoff series odds are no better than about 55-45, even when one team is clearly superior to the other, because of the randomness inherent in short series and in baseball in general. The two AL Division Series matchu...

    Eric Karabell

    High school pitcher Brady Aiken was the lucky first overall selection in the MLB 2014 Rule 4 draft Thursday night, and if history is our guide, there's a pretty good chance he'll end up in the major leagues someday, but no guarantees of success. Aike...

  13. Is Josh Hamilton worth waiting for?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners will be tempted to cut Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton now that he's on the shelf for at least six weeks, and perhaps more than two months, with a thumb injury, but I think that's a mistake. Sure, I can't possibly know how ...

  15. Bits: Iwakuma fantasy MVP among pitchers

    Eric Karabell
