What You Need to Know: Weekend Wrap-Up, 5/27

4

Daniel Rathman

The Sox end a streak, Bckett throws a no-no, and Springer explodes, plus much more from the weekend and what to watch today.

The Memorial Day Weekend Takeaway
If you’re going to compile a 10-game losing streak, you’ll need to find some innovative ways to give away games. Like, say, batting around and scoring five runs in the first inning against David Price, then getting shut out for 14 offensive frames before going down with a series of defensive misadventures:

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Starting Pitchers

4

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

Breaking down the starters for Scoresheet leagues, with a guest appearance from Bret Sayre.

As you’ve undoubtedly heard, good pitching beats good hitting, and vice versa. You may not, however, have thought about the implications of great pitching or terrible pitching on good hitting. We’ve got plenty to say on starting pitching in Scoresheet (so much so that this week is only the first half of our coverage of the position), but to summarize at the highest level, our advice is to maximize the great pitching on your team and to minimize the innings devoted to terrible pitching.

Sounds easy, but it can be quite hard in Scoresheet. So read on for our rankings and detailed thoughts on some players. And be sure to check out our podcast, linked at the bottom of this article, for even more advice on strategy and specific players.

We are also really excited to have the man/the legend Bret Sayre on the podcast for a special guest segment. Bret is trying out Scoresheet for the first time this year, and in this week’s segment, we talk through our thoughts on his keeper decisions in his soft keeper league.

Without further ado, here are our starting pitcher rankings in Scoresheet. Please note that for convenience, we are calling pitchers we rank 1-25 as no. 1 starters, those ranked 26 to 50 as no. 2 starters, etc.The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level.

Fantasy Team Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

6

Mike Gianella

The defending National League champs are replete with fantasy assets on both sides of the ball.

At the risk of pummeling home an obvious point, teams that advance to the World Series typically provide plenty of fantasy value across the board. The St. Louis Cardinals were no exception in 2013. Fifteen players provided double-digit Roto value in NL-only last year. Carlos Beltran left to join the New York Yankees, but with Matt Adams and Allen Craig already in the fold, Oscar Taveras waiting in the wings, and a handful of shrewd acquisitions, the Cards won’t miss a beat in 2014, and will once again be a good place for most of your fantasy shopping needs.

Projected Lineup

How the Red Sox sent the series back to Boston with a one-win lead.

This series has been compelling from the start, but it took until Game Five for it to look like a contest between two of the best teams in baseball. Game Five was the first without an error. It was mercifully free of egregiously bad baserunning, and it didn’t end with a debatable call. With the memory of Dana DeMuth's floating strike zone still fresh, it felt well-officiated behind home plate, aside from this third-inning strike three to Matt Carpenter.

Ben and Sam discuss David Ortiz, Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright, and the latest questionable moves by Mike Matheny and John Farrell.

After a walkoff obstruction call and a walkoff pickoff, what does Game Five have in store?

While the end of Game Four wasn’t quite as wild as Game Three’s crazy conclusion, last night was the first time a postseason game ended on a base running play since Game Five of the 1936 World Series (according to Baseball Reference). Propelled by Jonny Gomes’ huge three run home run and a strong bullpen performance, the Red Sox evened the series 2-2 and at a minimum ensured the series will return to Boston. Here is a preview of Game Five of the 2013 World Series.

Playoff Prospectus: World Series Game One Recap (Red Sox Edition)

Sam Miller

The Red Sox weren't supposed to match up well against strike-throwing Adam Wainwright. So why did they?

Throughout the World Series, we'll be providing two recaps of each game, one with a focus on the winner and the other devoting a longer look to the loser. This is the Red Sox entry for Game One. The Cardinals entry is here.

Ben and Sam compare notes from Game One of the World Series, discussing Adam Wainwright's performance, Dana DeMuth's perplexing call, the Cardinals' good and bad defensive plays, and more.

The Fall Classic gets underway with a battle of aces at Fenway.

I know it’s in season to congratulate the Red Sox and the Cardinals for making it to the Fall Classic—and they certainly deserve the accolades—but they are not the only groups worthy of weathering the journey. We, the general baseball following universe, deserve a congratulations. Sure, there were plenty of amazing games/moments, but here’s a quick list of things we (the baseball-consuming public) have had to endure this October thus far:

The Dodgers must beat Adam Wainwright to avoid a 3-0 hole.

On Saturday, the Cardinals scratched home an unearned run on a Jon Jay sacrifice fly. It turns out that this was all the run support Michael Wacha and the Cardinals bullpen needed, as they eked out a 1-0 win over the Dodgers to take a 2-0 series lead in the National League Championship Series. Can the Dodgers win their first game and climb back into the series? Here is a look at PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for tonight’s game.

The Cardinals end the Pirates' season and advance to the NLCS for the third straight year.

The Cardinals will play in the NL Championship Series for the third consecutive postseason. Their advancement comes after a Game Five victory over the Pirates, in which, fittingly, Adam Wainwright, David Freese, and Matt Adams played large roles.
