  5. 2014 rankings update: Injuries shuffle ranks

    Eric Karabell

    There was limited movement in the end-of-season rankings after Week 1, because little had changed. It was, after all, only one game. There weren't many major performances or injuries, but of course, that was anything but the case in Week 2. As a resu...

  6. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  7. Talking baseball with AL All-Stars

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- One of my favorite players to watch this season has been Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, in part because his excellent performance, at least to this level, was unexpected. After all, Dozier was a 20th-round selection in ES...

  11. Four Downs: Big week for QBs, not RBs

    Eric Karabell

    Quarterbacks are off to an astounding start to the 2013 season, with six 400-yard passing performances in the first two weeks. How rare is this? Well, it ties the record for most in any two-week stretch in the Super Bowl era, and there doesn't appear...

  12. Bits: Locke, Niese go in opposite directions

    Eric Karabell

    As we wind down the fifth of six months in the fantasy baseball season, owners should be looking at recent statistical trends rather than full-season numbers, and several pitching performances from Tuesday night remind us how quickly things can chang...

    Eric Karabell

    It was an exciting second preseason weekend in the NFL, with performances large and small, important injuries and still, my biggest takeaway -- and I suspect I'm hardly alone -- is the fact Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak finally acknowledged the Ar...

    Eric Karabell

  16. Bits: Ike Davis sent down to Triple-A

    Eric Karabell
