King of the Sports Movie

Everyone needs to know their wheelhouse. And one man who knows his is Kevin Costner. His wheelhouse is sports movies. There isn’t another actor on this planet that I would rather watch in a sports movie than him.

My wife questions whether or not he’s a good actor, I say that it doesn’t matter because he knows his audience and he knows what works.

To that end, I decided to breakdown a few of Costner’s most notable sports movie roles and decide which was the most Costner-esque.

Fantasy Baseball Review #4

R.I.P. to my 2018 Fantasy Baseball Season.

Reyes

So much hope at the beginning of the season, so much promise. But, such as life, nothing in baseball is a guarantee. This is especially true when it comes to pitchers.

I know it’s only one guy, but Alex Reyes was supposed to be my ace, my mid-season savior, my man. Now he’s bordering on being the guy who was supposed to be the next big thing, but kept getting injured.

So what do I do now?

Fantasy Baseball Review #3

Good news, bad news situation for my team. Good news is that I’ve moved up to 9th place (no more cellar dwelling for this guy!). The bad news is that Alex Reyes returned only to land on the DL after pitching only 4 innings in his debut.

My team is just kinda floating by at the moment. Welington Castillo got himself suspended (c’mon, brah, it’s 2018). Ryan Zimmerman is just chillin’ on the DL, along with Johnny Cueto, Zach Britton, and Adam Ottavino.

Fantasy Baseball Review #1

It hasn’t been the best start for my dynasty league fantasy baseball team. Before the draft, the season was full of promise. Having both Trea Turner and Andrew Benintendi on inexpensive, long term deals, and Alex Reyes and Vlad Guerrero Jr. waiting in the wings in the minors gives me a promising young core. The potential feels huge.  But, Turner and Benny have both had slow starts to the season. Turner is only hitting .195 and Benny is currently batting .206.

The rest of my team, with a few exceptions, can’t seem to get started this season. J.D. Martinez is hitting .222 with only one home run, Alex Bregman is sitting at .186 and can’t buy a base hit, and Yonder Alonso, who remains my sleeper pick, is STILL ASLEEP only hitting .167 with two home runs.
