    News and Notes – Week 22 pitching forecaster – 2 start pitchers (August 26th – Septemeber 1st)

    Danny Salazar – Cleveland Indians

    Salazar can strike batters out, as evidenced by his 29 K’s in 23 IP, so why is he in the 4th tier?  Danny has been a “2 start” pitcher going on 3 weeks now… that’s right, he has been in this article each of the previous 2 weeks, as a guy who should have been lined up to pitch twice, and instead the Indians moved him around and fantasy owners were left with their hopes and dreams dashed on the sand.  Well no more!  Fool me once… you get the idea.  Cleveland apparently insists on treating their prize prospect with kiddy gloves, and he is a long shot to make both starts this week, along with the fact that they don’t seem willing to let him approach the 100 pitch barrier.  While he is certainly a talent to keep an eye on (and should be owned in all keeper formats) I don’t see Salazar helping fantasy owners down the stretch thanks to the management situation in Cleveland.

      So, done with Fantasy Baseball are you? Why not remove the nav bar?

        Thanks Frank, I did remove the nav bar until next season. The way things turned out, we had a consistent 1000-1500 readers per day from March-July, and then August hit, and all the sudden we were down to 20-50 per day (with 4000-5000 per day for football). It was like football had turned off the switch on baseball. I figured the majority of our baseball readers already had their lineups ready to go for the fantasy playoffs, added to the fact that the conversations in the baseball forums had dropped off as well.

        Next year, we do plan on running baseball through the end of August, and seeing how the numbers turn out

          I do not agree with this approach in removing baseball from the site by August. Call it fantasyfootballadvice then in my opinion. Just because the traffic went down doesn’t mean the blog should change completely. There are difficulties in the topic of baseball, especially with the swarm of NFL draft talk, but to see it completely removed is very sad.

      I agree as well. Would have liked some more baseball advice, thought my browser was not reloading! See you in the spring.

        Darn. Ok, will be sure to continue the fantasy baseball articles throughout the entire season next year.
