2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week Three Musings

A few tweets from my colleague, Brett Talley, serve as the motivation for one of my talking points in this week’s musings.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Homer Bailey is Fine

Fresh off a $105 million contract extension, Homer Bailey has had a dreadful start to his 2014 campaign. In three starts, Bailey has managed to get through 14.1 innings, while posting an 8.16 ERA.
