SIMON SAYS

simon-says-logo-copyQuite a start to the season for Bryce Harper. If you took him in the fourth or fifth round of your draft, you are going to have quite a thrill with the first or second round output… Matt Carpenter is one of the top guys on my sleeper list this season. With 1B, 2B and OF eligibility and 2B yet to come, his flexibility could make him a big hero on your fantasy team… Yu Darvish came so close to a perfect game last night and did it with a blister on his finger. That’s pretty impressive… I think Leonys Martin could have a good season, but for now he is only good for daily leagues, as the Rangers are platooning him in CF… I love Kyle Seager. You can call him a sleeper, an underdog or a potential breakout player. I think he is going to have a season his owners will remember… When a player with an awesome name like Madison Bumgarner excels, you have to be happy for him…

What are the Dallas Mavs and Rick Carlisle hiding regarding Dirk Nowitzki? Give a status update. Spill some news. We are all dying here if we, indeed, own him…I knew Rashard Lewis could still contribute. Just not around ball hog extraordinaire Dwight Howard… Brandon Roy’s arhroscopic surgery makes Wesley Matthews a must play every week whn healthy and LaMarcus Aldridge a beast… Hedo Turkoglu is turning into a true source of assists, though his scoring is still not up to par for the Magic… Nice to see Chris Bosh contribute in the face of all other Miami Heaerst not doing so yesterday…  Russell Westbrook is such a stud…  The person who told me to take Al Harrington in the draft should be shot and stabbed…

Another week has gone by. I am playing the Fantasy Geek himself in the basketball league we are in together this week. I am hanging on by the skin of my teeth thanks to Dirk Nowitzki and his continued day-to-day status. Oh hell… let’s just call it what it is… week-to-week. CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Nice to see a triple-double out of Rajon Rondo the other day. Just sayin’… That Orlando-Phoenix trade sure beat the hell out of Gilbert Arenas‘ value. And I know someone who took him in the third round… Even if you need nothing but blocks, DeAndre Jordan is your man. 19 in his last three. I would have picked him up, only I wanted Glen Davis more… David Lee has become so versatile in that Golden State offense. He is amazing and justifies his draft position with his play… Dirk Nowitzki, come back!… Obviously, the presence of Andrew Bynum in Lakerland does not affect the play of Lamar Odom, thanks to the complete disappearance of Ron Artest. Hate away, Phil… Raymond Felton, I had no idea. Miss Larry Brown much?
