It’s getting to the point of the fantasy baseball season where your boy Daddy Starbucks starts to grow listless with writing about the sport. Don’t get it twisted, I still plan on winning all my leagues and will follow the game closely, but posts from me on fantasy baseball will begin to become more infrequent. The reason? There’s just not that much cool shit to write about that the smart readers of this website won’t already know.
I thought about doing an MLB Real Talk post on Joe Blanton for fuck’s sake. Look, I like the Philly Blant enough to trust him as a spot starter (or a solid SP in deep leagues), but when suckas like this start gracing the covers of Starbonell posts, it’s quite clear that there isn’t that much cool shit to talk about that hasn’t already been discussed on a million other sites. Here at Sons of Roto, we value outside-the-box analysis on players people may be overlooking. But we have to draw the line somewhere. Joe Blanton is that line.
Worry not fantasy baseball heads. “Stream Pies” will make its triumphant return around Memorial Day and that series will run until the end of the season. MLB Real Talk will also rear its head whenever an underappreciated commodity deserves a shout-out. And I’m sure “Lying, Whoring Numbers” will crop up when overzealous stat-wads get overexcited about a player. Still, we have to be realistic. Fantasy football is rapidly approaching and more time needs to be spent pimping what will be the greatest draft guide ever.
Don’t think of this as goodbye, for when the cool summer night settles down upon you, it will be my name you hear on the wind... “Sssstarbonell....”
