21 Days And Counting......

Share

There are just 21 days remaining in the baseball season. Fantasy owners that find themselves currently  in the race or in the playoffs are watching each category and looking for any edge possible. For those fantasy owners that are in head-to-head formats are in playoff mode and like the saying goes - stick with what got you there. If your in a rotisserie format, the marathon that is the baseball season is now a sprint to the finish line. Evaluate each category and decide what the worst case scenerio is in that category. For example, if your trying to gain an extra point in the wins category, is it worth the gamble to risk your standing in the ERA category? Be careful not to over manage your roster and trust in what got you to this point. If you can fish for a starting pitcher that has a great match up then do it. The key is and always will be the injury bug, which is not something any of us can control. Good luck and just remember - 21 days and counting....

The Giants are not in playoff contention this season and despite Posey's confidence that he will be back soon, the Giants may decide to limit Posey's playing time in the final couple weeks of the season. Giants manager Bruce Bochy has already said he'll give Posey a few days off to rest the finger, so at the very least Posey owners will be forced to look elsewhere for catching help in the short term. But even if Posey returns to the Giants lineup, a finger injury has the potential to negatively effect his results for the remainder of the season.
