Mike Trout:  1/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .304.  We keep waiting for that crazy Trout streak where he hits 5 home runs and steals 10 bases in a week.  Which is ridiculous because that shouldn't be expected of anyone but it just goes to show you the rate of ridiculousness of how we rate him.

Josh Hamilton:  2/5 with his 9th HR while hitting .216.  Hamilton is putting pressure on Pujols to see how is the greatest overpaid aging slugger on the Angels.

Adam Jones:  1/3 with his 13th HR while hitting .306.  The cleanup spot has been very kind to Jones who slugging like a fourth place hitter.  The rare guy who I haven't had to criticize once.

Evan Longoria:  2/7 with his 11th HR while hitting .305.  Here is a good debate point:  who do we hold our breath around the most when it comes to the fear of him getting hurt:  Troy Tulowitzki or Longoria?

James Loney:  2/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .327.  Where was all this pop the first 7 years of his career? 

Alex Cobb:  6 ER in 4 IP with an ERA of 2.95.  Just one of those days.

Rickie Weeks:  3/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .209.  Now hitting seventh in the order.  What a joke.

Yovani Gallardo:  8 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 4 K with an ERA of 4.74.  Nothing like a visit to the Marlins to make you look like a competent pitcher for one night at least.

Brandon Phillips:  2/4 with his 10th HR and 6 RBI while hitting .293.  With Ian Kinsler injured, you can say that Phillips is right there with Dustin Pedroia in the second base rankings behind Robinson Cano.

Homer Bailey:  8 IP 4 H 0 ER 2 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.47.  DOUGH!  Now I wish I owned him.

Scott Feldman:  5 ER in 6 IP with an ERA of 3.22.  Correction at work?  Maybe.

Jeff Baker:  1/2 with his 9th HR while hitting .33.  Listen I can't explain it either.  Just go with it until Baker realize he stinks.

Lance Berkman:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .270.  Maybe we have reached the dropoff phase for Berkman which we thought we hit a few times before.  The fact he is healthy and not hitting well in Texas speaks volumes.

Miguel Cabrera:  1/4 with his 18th HR while hitting .361.  The fact Cabrera hadn't hit a home run in a few days constitutes a horrible slump for him.

Jose Bautista:  2/4 with 2 home runs (14 for season) while hitting .267.  Bautista had a personal home run derby with Adam Dunn (2 home runs himself) in this one.

R.A. Dickey:  7 ER in 5 IP with an ERA of 5.11.  Right now Dickey should be cut in almost all formats.  Seriously.

Raul Ibanez:  1/4 with his 12th HR while hitting .225.  Ibanez has had a career of overachieving but the splits from the pop and the average are just too steep to ignore.

Hisashi Iwakuma:  7 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 1.79.  You could have ignored starting pitching in your draft and than taken Iwakuma and Jordan Zimmerman in the middle rounds instead of grabbing Dickey and Gallardo earlier.

Jason Heyward:  2/5 with 2 home runs (5 for season) while hitting .205.  Here he comes.  Even with a guy as K happy as Heyward is, you can't keep the talent down forever.
