Monday 24th Jul 2017

Last week in this space, I explained why I disagree with Major League Baseball which ignores the second half successes of the previous season, essentially making each All-Star Game a first-half only recognition.

In a complementary piece to last week’s National League analysis, I ran the numbers in the standard five offensive fantasy categories for the 2010 American League All-Stars since the 2009 All-Star Game. In bold, I called out several stats that seem out of line for an All-Star.

Every year, fans and commentators from every direction complain about the players named to the All-Star Team and the process used to select them. Everyone has a better idea, supposedly.

In devising a handle for this new column, exclusively for Mastersball platinum subscribers, I wanted something old with a twist of fantasy reality added. "Articles" is self-explanatory, while "Configuration" points to the importance of roster construction in fantasy success. Together, they offer a desired nod to history.

As pretty much the entire baseball world knows by now, Arizona’s general manager-manager tandem, Josh Byrnes and A.J. Hinch were shown the door on Thursday night.
