Very light day in fantasy baseball but as always, there are some tidbits to discuss.

Michael Pineda:  7 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.45.  The Pineda Express continued to chug on with no sign of a letup.  Innings caps will enter the discussion soon enough and I still advise you to trade him in non-keeper legues for that reason.  I wouldnt blame you though if you cant part with such a talent.  The kid is beyond legit as a future star.

Jermeil Weeks:  1/3 with 2 SB's (6 for season) while hitting .321.  So far so good for Rickie's little brother.  What nice is that there has been no hint of wrist issues.

Chris Capuano:  6 IP 5 H 0 ER 0 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.99.  I said in the spring that Capuano was a deep sleeper as his numbers have been very useful.  A few more of these and he will go beyond the deep league only realm.

Tim Lincecum:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 2 BB 12 K with an ERA of 3.16.  The next time Lincecum goes through a stretch of bad starts, just remember thats it nothing but a rough patch.  No injuries or nothing since The Freak is indomitable.

Miguel Montero:  1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .277.  Pay close attention to who I recommend to you for catcher next season.  Two years running now with hitting it big with under the radar guys.

Daniel Hudson:  7 IP 6 H 3 ER 1 BB 1 K with an ERA of 3.58.  Yeah I toouted him too after his rough early patch that was BABIP fueled.  The use of advanced stats hits gold again.

Lance Berkman:  2/5 with his 18th HR while hitting .309.  This guy is sick.  Nothing more to say than that.  Best value in fantasy baseball this season.

Chris Carpenter:  7 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 4.26.  He is healthy for now and pitching solidly so enjoy it while it lasts.  He is still scary in my book.
