What to expect from the Dutchies this year? Shawn Zarraga

With Spring Training at full swing now, it is time to see how the players from the Kingdom of the Netherlands will do in the upcoming season. Of course there is no crystal ball and it is still up in the air, but in general you can make a decent prediction based on the performance of previous years.

Shawn Zarraga was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 44th round of the 2007 draft.
In 2008 he played his first pro games with the AZL Brewers. The next year he started with the Helena Brewers of the Pioneer League (advanced rookie). In that same year he was promoted to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers of the Full A Midwest League, thus skipping A short season. With the Timber Rattlers Shawn only hit .152 in 21 games. With the Helena Brewers he hit a bit better as he posted a .266  BA in 31 games.

Are Daily Fantasy Sports Sites For You?

daily-fantasy-sportsI ran across this article not too long ago about Daily Fantasy Sports sites and found it interesting and thought that I would share it. I will state up front that I play fantasy sports (baseball and fottball) but not daily fantasy sports sites. Here is an article and Infographix that was posted on SeatSmart.com last November entitled the Daily Fantasy Sports Racket. Based on what these folks say it might just be a waste of your money. If you are DFS player, you might want to check it out.
