FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: WEDNESDAY
Grady Sizemore: 1/5 with his 7th HR while hitting .256. The average is back where it should be and he is still without a steal. No thanks.
Matt Capps: fifth blown save and than gets the win. Capps has been horrendous this season and you have to think a change could be coming soon if he doesnt turn it around. Phil Dumatrait got the save behind him. Write it down for later reference.
Carlos Pena: 1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .217. The personification of the suck average/power hitting special.
Aramis Ramirez: 1/4 with his third HR while hitting .288. This shmuck has two home runs in a week and a half after I dealt with his garbage for two months. I hate this game.
Mike Morse: 1/4 with his second SB while hitting .301. The guy is now stealing bases. For his next trick, Morse will take the mound tomorrow and throw a 4-hit shutout.
Matt Cain: 9 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 11 K with an ERA of 3.36. I know I dont give Cain as much credit as I should but thats because he doesnt have these kind of strikeout games much anymore. He is still great though but he remains one of those I just always never own. When I realize why this is I will let you know.
Todd Helton: 4/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .316. One of my alltime favorite players, Helton is aging gracefully like pretty much every old guy in fantasy baseball this season.
Ryan Howard: 1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .244. I am worried that Howard is now turning into stricktly a suck average/power hitter. Two months is quite a bit of time into the season to start thinking this could be the Howard we see the rest of his career. That is until he goes like Ortiz or Berkman and hits his late thirties and than turns into an MVP again.
Cole Hamels: 8 IP 6 H 0 ER 0 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.58. This is one guy I wish I had on one of my money league teams. Whats annoying is that I owned the guy pretty much every season since he debuted and now that he has reached the stratosphere in value, he went just out of my reach in drafts.
Mark Reynolds: 2/3 with his 10th HR while hitting .199. Its unreal to me that any major league hitter can hit .199 and still have fantasy baseball value. This is a weird game.
Andrew McCutchen: 3/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .282. McCutchen is all the way back from his early struggles and is even looking better than his past versions. Upward and onward.
David Ortiz: 1/4 with his 15th HR while hitting .323. Ortiz is up there with the early MVP talk. Unreal. Wasnt this the same guy that both the fans and the team tried to run out of town at the start of last season?
Carl Crawford: 2/5 with his 6th HR while hitting .247. Without him hitting in the top two spots, Crawford is just another player to me. Very sad.
Alex Rodriguez: 1/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .278. Rumor has it that he dropped Cameron Diaz. Lets hope it has teh same effect on him as dropping a celebrity g-friend had on Mr. Kemp.
Lance Berkman: 1/3 with his 14th HR while hitting .329. Wacky spring training prediction: Lance Berkman and David Ortiz would be battling for the league home run lead. What??? Oh yeah.
Adrian Beltre: 2/3 with his 12th HR while hitting .257. Its amazing how this guy's average is always in the same region when he has his money. Its not even impacted by the ballpark.
Prince Fielder: 2/3 with 2 home runs (17 for season) while hitting .296. Who is having the bigger free agent season: Jose Reyes or Prince Fielder?
Carlos Quentin: 2/5 with 2 home runs (17 for season) while hitting .271. Where are the injuries?
Adam Lind: 1/3 with his 11th HR while hitting .317. The guy can hit anything out right now and I am loving every second of it.
Billy Butler: 1/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .29. Always big news when Butler hits one out.
