Passing Judgment: The Demise of Jose Reyes

Jose Reyes is one of the most exciting and electric players in all of baseball.  Being a Mets fan, I had the opportunity to watch him every day since he made his debut at 19-years old in 2003.  He came up with a lot of fanfare and certainly lived up to the hype as a […]

Passing Judgment: Aroldis Chapman’s Cuban Missile Crisis

It is a miracle that Aroldis Chapman is even alive, let alone planning his rehab schedule to return to the Cincinnati Reds at some point later this season.  In case you have been living under a rock or got consumed by March Madness, the Reds closer was hit in the face by a line drive […]

Passing Judgment: A Brave New World

As a die-hard Mets fan, I have an innate dislike of the Atlanta Braves.  This stems back to their bitter rivalry in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s where the Braves dominated the NL East and got the upper-hand on the Mets at every occasion.  But despite not liking the Braves, I have a genuine […]

Passing Judgment: Law & Order – AROD

The ongoing soap opera involving Alex Rodriguez took another interesting turn last week when he filed two lawsuits in New York.  The first lawsuit was filed in New York County against Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig asserting claims for tortious interference with prospective business relationship and tortious interference with existing contracts.  The second […]

Passing Judgment: Mariano Rivera’s Impact on Fantasy Baseball

Much has been made about Mariano Rivera’s retirement from baseball, and rightfully so.  This man has proven over and over again that he is indisputably the greatest closer in the history of the game.  I strongly dislike the Yankees, but I certainly respect and admire Rivera’s longevity, consistency, and dominance.  It really is incredible that […]

Passing Judgment: PED’s in MLB

By now you have undoubtedly heard about Ryan Braun’s 65-game suspension which he negotiated with MLB offiicals stemming from his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.  The ramifications of this development are far-reaching and continue to perpetuate the black eye on baseball for its issues with performance-enhancing drugs. After Ryan Braun won the 2011 National League […]

Passing Judgment: better days ahead for the Mets

I am not going to sugarcoat the fact that being a Mets fan can be tortuous.  I am admittedly jealous of the many people I know who are Yankees’ fans and have been blessed with several World Series championships and annual playoff teams.  But I can’t help it…my first exposure to baseball was as a […]

Passing Judgment: R.A. Dickey’s flaccid knuckleball.

As a die-hard Mets fan, I thoroughly appreciated and admired R.A. Dickey’s accomplishments during his three years in New York.  I remember when it was announced that the Mets had signed Dickey to a minor league contract before the 2010 season.  I made fun of the transaction because I had remembered how brutal Dickey had […]

It is my journalistic obligation to preface this article by saying that no one at Fantasy Judgment, including the author of the following article, is in possession of Gray’s Sports Almanac or has ever been certified with psychic powers.  After spending the past several weeks analyzing and breaking down hundreds of players for fantasy baseball […]
