    It's Ben Pernick's turn to detail his round-by-round thoughts as we continue our coverage of the Pitcher List 2018 Mock Draft.


    Ben Pernick’s 10 Bold Predictions in Review

    Hey folks, Ben Pernick here and it’s time for a retrospective of my 10 Bold Predictions from prior to the 2017 season. I’ll tell you now, in hindsight, they look pretty bad! But the positive takeaway is I still somehow ended up with the PitcherList Writer’s League championship (woohoo!), so one can be wrong a lot […]


    Buy & Sell 9/20: Identifying Who to Add and Who to Drop

    The waiver wire is like sugar… I always plan to avoid it but I just can’t stay away, it’s a part of who I am. People get so excited for draft day and having the perfect draft, but teams ALWAYS underestimate just how badly the best-laid plans of mice and managers can go. On my […]


    Buy & Sell 9/13: Identifying Who to Add and Who to Drop

    Welcome back to one of the final editions of Buy & Sell for this year! Thanks to Very Great & Mashley Olson, I narrowly survived the PitcherList writer’s league playoffs for another week, and hopefully some of you were similarly rewarded. Now he’s owned in 35.5% of leagues, and all I’ll say is that’s still […]

    Buy & Sell 8/23: Identifying Who to Add and Who to Drop

    Welcome to the week leading up to the final homestretch here at Buy & Sell. This could be called the “strangely about the Minnesota Twins edition”, and I still had to stop myself from writing about more Twins such as Kepler and Mauer who have also been hot. Just like the Twins, you may have […]


    Buy & Sell 8/17: Identifying Who to Add and Who to Drop

    For many leagues, the trade deadline has now passed. That means that if you want to help your team, you have to pull yourself up by the bootstraps, which I should remind you is physically impossible. That said, there are some guys on the wire who might bring the fire, and bring you the victory […]
