Last night, Earl, Matt, and Jon touched on a bunch of topics. Much of the first half hour was dedicated to MLB, talking mostly about the New York Mets. After a few calls, they talked about the Stanley Cup Playoffs that just got underway and the upcoming NBA playoffs. Check it out and let us know what you think!

If you want to win your Fantasy Baseball League this year, you better get to know George Springer.

Most of you have probably wrapped up your fantasy baseball drafts and either hate your team, love your team, or are already ravaged by injuries.  No matter which team you have, key waiver wire additions always help championship teams.  One way to build that team after the draft, is by snatching up top flight prospects off of the waiver wire while people are asleep. This is always an effective tactic.

In no particular order, these 5 prospects are sure to pay big dividends during the 2014 season. Read the rest of this entry »

Last night on TSB Radio, Earl (@EarlTSB) and Jon (@JonPresser) talked about the Seattle Seahawks dominance in Superbowl 48, the New York Mets, the Ryan Callahan situation with the New York Rangers, and some of the young players in MLB.

Ok we get it, the Mets have stunk for 5 years so you’re broken, sad, angry and don’t know what to do with your life to fill the void. It’s cool, but this in no way means that the best way to go about coping with the failures of this team is to sit home and hate every move the team makes whether it is positive or negative, and while you’re at it hate on other fans of the team for being optimistic or dare I say rational about the situation at hand. The Mets fanbase has become a divided place of logic and sense.   Read the rest of this entry »

So, the Ryan Braun suspension is old news in the sports world. But, one opponent doesn’t seem to be giving up on the issue, Dodgers CF Matt Kemp. He wants his hardware.

Kansas City Royals v Toronto Blue Jays

The 2013 baseball season is right around the corner. For me this means two things. First, I will probably suffer through another long season as a fan of the Chicago Cubs, and secondly, another season of Fantasy Baseball. I am going to put together a list of guys that I think can be good late round value picks in your draft, or free agent acquisitions.

Well, the only bigger shit show that my picks last week was the collapsing of the roof on the Metrodome.  The only video I’ve ever seen that’s more horrific than that was the X-Pac/Chyna honeymoon sex tape.  My fantasy picks sucked except for DeSean Jackson and my weekly picks sucked.  Aaron Rodgers cost me my best bet and probably also cost the Packers the playoffs.  Oh well, not everyone can have a head made of cement.  Last week I went 6-8-1 (Thanks for the botched extra point, Redskins!) to take the season record down to 81-76-2, and with Aaron Rodgers doing his best Troy Aikman impression, my best bet record falls to 4-8.

Right now we are creeping into the semi-finals of most Fantasy Football Leagues.  I hope these suggestions help you win this week.  If they don’t, sorry for partying.

QB Start: Josh Freeman – His team needs a win, and he’s going to deliver

QB Sit: Rex Grossman (Yes he’s actually getting the start over McNabb today agains the Cowboys.)

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will destroy the Lions this week and are TSB's BEST BET for week 14.

Due to technical difficulties, this will have to be a short and sweet version of Fantasy Football starts and sits, and weekly picks.  Last week’s Fantasy Forecast was abysmal.  The Chiefs were a disaster and the Cassell to Bowe combo was working like they had both contracted syphilis during the course of the week.  Well it turns out that Matt Casell was about to have appendix removed, and was legitimately “sick”. 

I went 9-6 last week.  The record creeps up to 75-68-1, but down to 4-7 in Best Bets after the Bears not covering.

Jay Cutler and the Bears are TSB's BEST BET for Week 13 against the Lions.

Last week was the first sub-.500 week in a while for the “Expert”.  But have no fear, an above .500 record this week is on its way.  With the 6-7 record last week and losing my best bet, the overall record stands at 66-62-1 and 4-6 in Best Bets.  But before I reveal my picks for the week, here are TSB’s “Start ’em/Sit ’em”, for week 13’s Fantasy Football matchups.

QB Start: Matt Cassel – Although Cassel has only thrown for over 300 yds once this season, he has been a TD throwing machine the last 7 weeks.  He has an 18-1 TD to INT ratio in those games.  This week he is facing a Broncos defense that has given up HUGE fantasy days to just about everyone they have played this season.

Kay Ohhh is gettin' ready to dominate the Rams this week. He's the sole reason that the BRONCOS are TSB's Best Bet for week 12.

Week 12 is already underway with 3 games on Thanksgiving.  If I had no family, OR was a little more dedicated, I would have had picks for those 3 games out on Wednesday night.  But, since neither of those came into play, I’ll just give you TSB’s Expert picks for the games today and Monday night.  With my best week this season (10-5 and winning my Best Bet), I’ve moved to 60-55-1 and 4-5 in Best Bets.  Two weeks in a row over .500, LOOK OUT!

Vikings (-1.5) @ Redskins

For some unknown reason, the Skins play up or down to their competition each week.  So with that you would think that they would get up for this home game and beat the Vikings.  WRONG.  Leslie Frasier is going to have a contract put out on McNabb today.  Finally, a Vikings pass rush. Pick: VIKINGS  RESULT: WIN
