The 2011 baseball season is almost over, so this edition of the Top Ten List will be my final edition of the fantasy baseball season. Don’t cry…no really, don’t cry. I will still provide you with witty insight during the offseason. But for the purposes of the 2011 season, this marks the end of our wonderful journey. This special edition of the Top Ten List is much like the Oscars, except there is no corny host with bad jokes and no one will judge you because you wear skin-tight nylon shirts and skids. The 2011 fantasy baseball season was filled with many surprises, both good and bad. There were some remarkable performances and some underwhelming ones as well. While we are always looking ahead and planning for the future, this Top Ten List focuses on the past and remembering the memorable 2011 season. So, without further adieu, here is the final fantasy baseball Top Ten List of the season.
Welcome to the very special Hurricane Irene Edition of the Tuesday Top Ten. Just days after many in the northeast felt the rumble from the earthquake, we were subjected to Hurricane Irene and all of its aftermath. Before you start thinking the end of the world is near because of all these natural disasters, just remember that Adam Dunn and Mark Reynolds both struck out three times since you began reading this article, so all is right in the world again. Now, without further adieu, here is this week’s edition of the Tuesday Top Ten fantasy baseball headlines for August 30, 2011.
Happy Memorial Day! Today we pay tribute to the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces, and take the time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and laid down their lives in defense of this country. We at Fantasy Alarm have nothing but the utmost respect for those who serve and have served to protect us and the liberties and principles of the United States. We thank you for your service this day. It is a rough transition to fantasy baseball, but Memorial Day has become a big day in the Major League Baseball season. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the news of the day in Rounding The Bases.
There is a LOAD of bad injury news this season, including two guys that you really didn't want to see in the same sentence as the word injury. One Yankee star continues to lead the league in long balls, while perhaps their best hitter took one in the dome today. There is a potential closer who is having trouble between the ears, and a catcher who is having trouble between the legs. We have a Twins closer blowing a game, while a hitter trying to keep them in it. Lastly there is a hot prospect who goes yard, while a returning speedster is stealing bags like it is his job. All of that and don't forget to sign up for the Fantasy Alarm service to be sure that you never have to start a benched player again.
Stop the presses folks, it is time to run to your waiver wire as perhaps the best prospect in the minors is about to show his face in Kansas City and you need to know about it NOW! Besides that we talk about an icon getting a "day off", a couple of young starters who look to turn around the rough starts to their careers, and a closer who seems that he might be on the DL for sucking. I continue my crusade against Lance Berkman and cover everything else relevant in the world of fantasy baseball for this Thursday. Please do yourself a favor and sign up for the Fantasy Alarm service to be sure that you never start a benched player again!
