Healthy and playing everyday, it’s time to give Logan Morrison some fantasy cred

The upper echelon of the standard 5×5 leaderboard at first base is rather predictable as we head into the final week of May. Paul Goldschmidt is at the top, followed by Freddie Freeman and Joey Votto. The next three spots, however, are occupied by unli…

Orr and Esposito-led Bruins the most underachieving great team in NHL history

There’s a wonderful moment in Peter Yates’s 1973 crime thriller picture, The Friends of Eddie Coyle, when the titular character, played by Robert Mitchum, is taken for a night out to the Boston Garden to watch the Bobby Orr/Phil Esposito-led Bruins play the Chicago Blackhawks. Coyle is loaded on cheep Garden beer, but he can’t stop marveling at Bobby Orr, a “kid” with his entire future in front of him. This, friends, is Boston’s version of Eden, the Gallery Gods edition.

Jerad Eickhoff, Wade Miley among best fantasy streaming options this weekend

Every week in the Weekend Stream, we’ll give you pitches to add for spot starts who can help you chase down a category or two in head-to-head leagues. All of the pitchers we offer will fall under one of three headings. If a pitcher is a stream candidate in “shallow” leagues, it means he has an ownership

The One Who Got Away: Dustin Pedroia

Being ignored by the major prospect lists in 2007 was surely not the first time the 5’9″ Pedroia had been overlooked. Pedroia, a second-round pick in 2004, had been ranked at No. 77 by BA in 2006 and made his major league debut that August, but his .191/.258/.303 line in 98 PA hardly suggested

No. 10: ’07—Jay Bruce; ’17—Andrew Miller

The Original No. 10: Bruce (No. 14 BA, No. 9 BP) Bruce had attributes that made the entire baseball world eagerly await his arrival in early 2008: a whole-field approach, command of the strike zone and power at the plate; arm strength and the ability t…

No. 9: ’07—Chris Young; ’17—Elvis Andrus

The Original No. 9: Young (No. 12 BA, No. 8 BP) Though it took longer than expected for Young to go from a 16th round pick out of high school in 2001 to debuting in late ’06, his 30-30 potential and ability to play centerfield placed him 20 spots above then-Arizona teammate Justin Upton on the BP

No. 6: ’07—Cameron Maybin; ’17—Andrew McCutchen

The Original No. 6: Maybin (No. 6 BA, No. 7 BP) Maybin burst onto the major league scene at age 20 in 2007 by homering off of Roger Clemens at Yankee Stadium in his second game. A former No. 10 draft pick, he has shown signs of stardom since; he stole …

No. 4: ’07—Homer Bailey; ’17—Troy Tulowitzki

The Original No. 4: Bailey (No. 5 BA, No. 4 BP) Tagged for a 6.72 ERA in 17 major league starts in 2007 and ’08, Bailey finally got a foothold in the majors in mid-2009, but shoulder woes limited him to just 41 starts over the next two seasons. He put together a pair of strong, healthy years in

No. 3: ’07—Delmon Young; ’17—Evan Longoria

The Original No. 3: Young (No. 3 BA, No. 3 BP) The first pick of the 2003 draft and the game’s No. 1 prospect heading into ’06, Young reached the majors in late August of that season and hit well, bating .317 in 30 games, but his stock had fallen slightly in the wake of a 50-game suspension

No. 1: ’07—Alex Gordon; ’17—Clayton Kershaw

The Original No. 1: Gordon (No. 2 BA, No. 1 BP) The second pick of the 2005 draft and the 2006 Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year, Gordon had a respectable rookie season for the Royals as a 23-year-old third baseman in ’07 (.247 batting average, .314 on-base percentage, .411 slugging

Rashad McCants: I wouldn’t have washed out of the NBA if I didn’t date Khloe Kardashian

Though he starred at North Carolina and was a first-round draft pick, Rashad McCants washed out of the NBA after four unspectacular seasons. The reason, at least in part, McCants says now, is Khloe Kardashian. McCants spoke recently with the Charlotte …
