FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: THURSDAY
So San Francisco Giants 1B/Of AubreyHuff decides to remind us all that he is playing still and not retired by slugging three home runs on Thursday. Huff is one of those classic no respect guys (think Jermaine Dye when he was playing) who never gets the fantasy baseball love he deserves. I dont own him anywhere so I have no vested interest but the guy always gives a good showing and his second halves have won many titles. Keep thant in mind if you are looking for a boost in pop and with RBI. On top of this, here is what else took place that caught my attention in fantasy baseball Thursday.
Neil Walker: 2/5 with his 7th HR while hitting .273. Walker looked better when he was hitting close to .300 bu he still has turned a profit this season. It didnt take much anyway to do that since he was undrafted in many formats.
Carlos Beltran: 2/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .288. This was Beltran saying to the rest of MLB, "get me the hell out of here."
Matt LaPorta: 1/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .255. LaPorta has the rare power not seen as much i ntoda's game so he instantly has value. Think of him as the next generation of Aubrey Huff.
Joakim Soria: two perfect scoreless innings in relief. There was a collective "damn" reaction from all the new Aaron Crow owners.
Colby Rasmus: 2/5 with his 5th HR while hittng .279. Its a bit too little too late for Rasmus as he has a lot of work to do to show ehe is going to take that next step.
Mike Morse: 4/5 while hitting .319. I would say that Morse is pretty locked in right now.
Jordan Zimmerman: 7 IP 6 H 1 ER 1 BB 4 K with an ERA of 3.61. Yup it was me who yelled at the beginning of May to pick up the guy. How is that turning out?
Matt Joyce: 2/4 with his 10th HR and 4th SB while hitting .364. That batting average fall will come any day now. I think.
Justin Smoak: 1/5 with his 9th HR while hitting .246. Yeah the average has fallen to the depths which sucks but Smoak can still Smoak em enough to stay relevant this season.
