DraftKings – Use the LaRoche Clip or Get Burned

Grizzly Adams did have a beard, and so does Adam LaRoche ($4,800), who’s hitting at an insane clip this month (.636 SLG and .348 ISO). He’s also a notorious slow-starter, but his lifetime OPS in August is .903, which is well higher than any of those other stupid months. Hold up, we’re not done here. I got stats on stats on stats. LaRoche also owns a .417 wOBA and .225 ISO at...

Watch: Adam LaRoche homers the Nats to their third straight walk-off victory

Your browser does not support iframes. Adam LaRoche got ahead 3-1 on Arizona Diamondbacks’ reliever Will Harris.

I’m Getting Quite Sick And Tired Of Adam LaRoche

Yes, this is a petulant post. But I’m tired of Adam LaRoche magically recovering from batting slumps against the Mets. LaRoche is an underrated Mets killer.

But in recent history, LaRoche has gotten healthy...

Watch Ian Desmond react to Matt Williams decision to not pinch run for Adam LaRoche

File under: #Mattitude. And so, even Ian Desmond couldn't figure out why Matt Williams didn't pinch run for Adam LaRoche in the 9th inning with one out representing the tying run in a 2-1 game. Enjoy the Vine (via MASN/MLB.TV) above, in which lip readers can clearly make out Desmond asking "Do you want to pinch run?". Didn't matter anyway - Bryce Harper and...
