by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Chris Iannetta – Catcher – Los Angeles Angels CBS Sports – 9%, ESPN – 2.2%, Yahoo – 4% While he has lost some playing time behind the plate, the Angels have seemingly given Iannetta more rope than others (i.e. C.J.

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) You can argue that Mookie Betts has been a disappointment thus far in 2015, hitting .241 with 5 HR, 24 RBI, 20 R and 6 SB over his first 46 games (entering play yesterday). Of course “disappointment” is a relative term. If you projected those numbers out for 162 games you’d get (rounding up): 18 HR 21 SB 85 RBI 70 R Sure the average has been poor, but would anyone complain about those counting (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) While Neftali Feliz hitting the DL has helped expedite Shawn Tolleson’s assumption of the closers role, it’s easy to argue that the change was inevitable anyways. The bigger question is whether Tolleson will ever relinquish the job this season, even after Feliz returns to health. Thus far he’s been dominant, with a 2.82 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 12.09 K/9 and 1.61 BB/9. Obviously the number that jumps out at you is the (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) There had been rumblings that the Raiders were going to pursue DeMarco Murray this offseason. Whether they did and failed or it was pure speculation is irrelevant, because at the end of the day he’s not in Oakland.

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Last year’s rookie wide receiver class was historically good, and you could argue for three of them to already be ranked among the Top 12 in the league (though, at the end of the day, Mike Evans fell just short).  While that’s certainly going to skew some people’s opinions on how this year’s rookies will produce, let’s take a look at how the sophomores and all the rest rank at (read more...)
