Pebble Hunting: The Rockies and Real Home Run Hitters

5

Sam Miller

Giancarlo Stanton's recent rampage against the Rockies inspires two questions: Have the Rockies ever had a "real" power hitter? And if not, why the heck haven't they?

We'll start as soon as Giancarlo Stanton's home run in Coors Field from last Friday night lands.

Fantasy Beat: Is Armando Galarraga Worth a Pickup?

7

Marc Normandin

After his near-perfect outing last night, should you pick up the Tigers' hurler?

From a fantasy perspective, there are very few people that are upset that Armando Galarraga gave up a single hit in last night's Tigers/Indians contest—he's owned in just 1.4 percent of ESPN leagues, and that number has increased by 0.8 percent this week, which is almost all totally due to yesterday's performance. What can we expect from Galarraga in the future?

Well, if you were one of the people who was still hoping Dontrelle Willis would do something besides ruin your numbers, then Galarraga isn't a bad option to have around now that the former has been banished to the National League. He's not a great pitcher for fantasy though, even in an AL-only setup, but he may not hurt you much either.

Jim Joyce would not be the villian in the Armando Galarraga near-pefect game saga if MLB took full advantage of technology.

On Wednesday night, Jim Joyce blew a call at first base.  It wasn’t the first call he’s gotten wrong, nor will it be the last.  Other umpires also made bad calls yesterday—some because they were out of position, some because they’ve consciously decided not to enforce baseball’s rules exactly as written, but most because the human eye and brain are fallible.  Everyone who’s played a sport of any kind knows this—as a player, you can be sure a volleyball was out, not just barely out but out by a foot, only to have every one of your teammates tell you they were sure it hit the line.  None of this is news, and none of this is a tragedy—or at least it wouldn’t be, had the men who run Major League Baseball not consciously decided to ensure that it would become one but putting Jim Joyce alone on an island without any help.
