Corey Kluber: Time to Panic?

One of the biggest headlines going in to the 2015 season was can Corey Kluber be more than just a flash in the pan? Before the breakout 2014 season, Kluber had been mid rotation arm with an ERA hovering around the mid 3s to 4s and really seemed t...


Roto Riteup: May 5, 2015

I’m not sure how Zach Sanders allowed Star Wars day to go by without a word about it, especially seeing how we’re getting a new Star Wars film this year. Unacceptable. On today’s agenda: 1. Alex Cobb encounters a setback 2. Consi...
