|They call him Pronk...don't know why...but is hitting lights out right now.|
Ben Zobrist finished off the week with 6R, 6H, 3HR and 7RBI. When he makes contact he seems to drive in runs.
James Shields had his 2nd complete game victory, this one courtesy of the Jays or recently the “K”ays. Shields scattered 4 hits, walked 2 and fanned 7. His WHIP is now one best in baseball at a few ticks under1.00. He is currently owned in only 67% of leagues. I will be grabbing him in all leagues where he is available.
Ricky Romero had 10 K in 7 strong innings but was the hard luck loser pitching against James Shields.
Max Scherzer proved once again why he is one of the best #2 SP in the AL. He pitched 8 innings giving up only 4 hits to the struggling White Sox. He only walked 3 and struck out 7 for his 4th win on the year.
David Wright gets two jacks yesterday to go along with a SB for good measure. As soon as I crap on the Mets they pull off 4 wins in a row. Oh yeah, 3 were against Arizona so I crap on you again…trade your Mets players.
Stephen Drew is the poor man’s Tulo. He now has the 2nd most RBI for any SS in baseball. Throw in his .344 BA while batting cleanup and you have yourself a great find at a weak position. Remember when he wasn’t supposed to be as good as his big bro J.D.?
Mike Stanton gets a long HR for the 2nd time this year. He nearly doubled his RBI with that one swing. Until he cuts down that 40% K rate he is just another Kyle Blanks to me.
Danny Espinosa smacked 3 hits yesterday raising his average to .281 for the year. If you didn’t know it he also leads all 2B in RBI as of yesterday with 14. He is only owned in 22% of leagues…worth picking up to replace your weak MI.
Mariano Rivera blew his 2nd save of the year. Is father time starting to whisper in his ear?
Travis Hafner collected 2 more hits for the tribe. Did anybody draft this guy last month? Now hitting close to .340 and healthy for the first time in 3 years. He is available in over half of all leagues and should be owned.
The Cubs trio is now at 230AB with one HR. I need some type of meter like the old Shawon-o-Meter for Dunston’s BA back in the day to keep track of these guys lack of power.
Arthur Rhodes the other 40+ year old lefty, picked up the save in Feliz’ absence for Texas. That is back to back saves for two different 40 year olds.
Mike Napoli goes yard again. How many Naploi owners are glad he is out of the Halo’s organization and away from Scioscia? We all knew he could hit, why didn’t Scioscia?
Don’t look now but the Bo Sox are near .500 and the newbies Gonzalez and Crawford are starting to hit. They had 5 combined hits against the Angels.
Jason Heyward says bat me in the 2 hole and I will produce 3 hits and 3 RBI with an HR and 2 Runs. By golly that is what he did. This move up in the order will get him extra Abs and more chances to produce. If you own him good for you, if not… ouch.
Brian Wilson gets rocked again and takes the loss. An ERA near 10.00, maybe time to lose the beard.
The San Diego offense is now the worst I have seen in a decade. No one is worth owning. They actually have two starting position players now batting less than .100 after last night’s game. What is the term for batting halfway under the Mendoza Line? How about the Mendoza Fault Line…because something has gotta give way.
Me likey all Oakland’s SP ERA right now. Trevor Cahill 2.30, Brett Anderson 1.63, Gio González 1.80, Brandon McCarthy 2.10.
Lance Berkman gets two more hits to take his BA up to .377 When are you going to pick him up and put him in your CI spot. I have told you for 2 weeks now.
