Mark Texeira:  1/4 with his first HR while hitting .167.  Texeria is once again a little slow out of the gates but that is an old story.  His power is still very good and should continue to be as a lefty in Yankee Stadium. 

Justin Masterson:  7 Er in 6.1 IP with an ERA of 3.57.  Masterson is just not as good a pitcher as his numbers were looking at the end of May so this is not a shock.  Sorry there I got killing the guy again but some guys I just can't trust no matter how good the numbers may look.

Jason Heyward:  2/5 with his third HR while hitting .153.  Man has Heyward been awful.  Myself and just about every other fantasy baseball expert out there thought he would take that next step to stardom this season but his ongoing issues with strikeouts are not getting any better.  Really Heyward's future all depends on him putting the work in and getting the strikeouts under control and maybe this is the start of something.  Grasping at straws.

Freddie Freeman:  1/3 with his sixth HR while hitting .314.  A week ago I told you all to try and steal Freeman from a frustrated owner.  If you did than you got credit for three home runs and counting in six games.

Brian McCann:  2/3 with his 7th HR while hitting .280.  Its all going good for the veteran McCann who has so far successfully made some adjustments against the shift and lefties which were rapidly sending his career south.  Evan Gattis we hardly knew you.

Kris Medlen:  7 IP 7 H 0 ER 1 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.14.  It has been fits and starts for Medlen in his encore to his ridiculous second half of 2012.  We have to see how it plays out but Medlen could be a guy who gets better as the season goes on.  Either way now would be the time to try and buy low and the price may not be too high since Medlen is still not fully in the circle of trust.

Jay Bruce:  3/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .272.  While Bruce has not had that explosion of 5 home runs in 5 games, he has consistently hit for above average pop once April finished out.  Guys with Bruce's type of pop can;t be kept down forever and the numbers will always be there at the end of the season.  The only variable at work is what his average will be.  So far so good.

Bronson Arroyo:  8 IP 4 H 0 ER 0 BB 3 K with an ERA of 3.38.  Arroyo just kind of sits there begging to be added but everyone gives him a collective yawn.  Those in inning capped leagues should just keep on reading but the rest of you can take him on for June.  A perenially poor second half guy, be sure to get out before the July 4th fireworks.

Coco Crisp:  4/5 with his 6th HR while hitting .300.  At 34 Crisp has 6 home runs and 11 steals.  One of the most underrated players in all of fantasy baseball, the old man keeps himself in phenomenal shape which has shown in his terrific early season production.  With no signs of slippage, there is no reason he can't keep up this level of hitting.

Brandon Moss:  1/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .229.  The fear with Moss was that his high strikeout rate would sink his average and value as a whole this season after his nice breakout in 2012.  Well that is exactly what has happened here as Moss is really tough to own when toting such a rough contact rate. 

Rickie Weeks:  2/3 with his fourth HR while hitting .192.  One of the more outlier minor league seasons ever was when Weeks won a batting title there.  Seriously.  Look it up and thna shake your head at the current version of the his bat.

Yadier Molina:  2/5 with his fourth HR while hitting .350.  Molina is doing a nice Buster Posey impression with the average which is double amazing considering his age.  Nothing new to say here other than that he is really good.

Carlos Beltran:  3/5 with his 13th HR while hitting .308.  Just about one more month until the alarms go off to SELL SELL SELL!

Everth Cabrera:  2/3 with 2 stolen bases (23 for season) while hitting .276.  Cabrera could win you the stolen base crown in your league all by himself given his crazy rate.

Adrian Gonzalez:  1/3 with his 8th HR while hitting .329.  Told you all to give AGONE another shot this seaosn as a small value play given the fact his draft stock had dropped a bit after his power dropped off some in 2012.  Yuppers.

Yasiel Puig:  2/4 while hitting leadoff.  Yummm.  Me want more.  Me also want Andre Ethier to go away.

Domonic Brown:  3/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .294.  Oh give me a break already!  Let's just pretend that post I did on Brown last week never happened.  There is being red hot at the dish and than there is what Domonic Brown is.
