FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: TUESDAY
JJ Hardy: 2/5 with his 9th HR while hitting .303. Most valuable shortstop outside of Tulo and Reyes? Dont laugh.
Adam Jones: 1/3 with his 11th HR while hitting .297. Jones is finally living up to all the hype but no one seems to care. This is the part of fantasy baseball that always puzzles me. You get big time hyped guys like Jones who everyone has to have and than he falls on his face and we swear off him forever. When he finally does come around, we yawn and pick up Dustin Ackley. On and on it goes.
Seth Smith: 3/4 with 2 home runs (8 for season) while hitting .313. Smith seems to erupt once a month and than goes back into hiding. That my friends is a deeper format stock.
Jason Bay: 3/3 with his 3rd HR while hitting .236. Yes that was Bay who actually did something positive on the baseball field. You dont need to hae your eyes checked.
Dillon Gee: 4 IP 3 H 4 ER 6 BB 1 K with an ERA of 3.21. Well the trap was set and the bomb went off for those who went out and picked him up after his last start. Yes that means you and you and you over there in the corner.
Brian McCann: 2/3 with his 12th HR while hitting .301. McCann just keeps chugging along with little fanfare. Somehere Mr. Pence is saying "Yup."
Mike Minor: 7 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 4.59. I really like Minor's arm but just look up Gee, Dillon above for why I fear the guy also.
Gaby Sanchez: 1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .304. Yes Sanchez will make the All-I-Missed-On-This-Guy-This-Past-Spring-Team.
Alex Gordon: 3/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .287. Thats two home runs since I cut Gordon in one league and traded him in a package for the quiet Jose Bautista in the last week. Commence banging head against the wall.
Chris Young: 1/5 with his 15th HR while hitting .253. I clicked into Young's stats and was impressed by what I discovered. I wasnt paying as much attention as I should have since I have never been a big fan due to the average bit credit needs to be given. Good stuff.
Willie Mo Pena: 1/4 with his first HR while hitting .250. The new suck average/power hitter special promotion.
