2017 FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: MONDAY

Jason Heyward:  1/4 with his 3rd HR while hitting .294.  Listen you treat Jason Heyward like you do Ryan Zimmerman.  You know the good times are going to end soon and maybe with a thud but you first see how long they go.

Chad Kuhl:  9 ER in 1.2 IP with an ERA of 6.63.  This is one of those rare cases when you can legitimately say when watching Kuhl from your coach, "I can do better than that."

Corey Dickerson:  2/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .324.  Just to show you the level of disrespect for Dickerson in the fantasy baseball community, he was on waivers in the Experts League until I picked him up for Monday.  Yes timing is everything but I also literally have been saying to pick up Dickerson since March 1st at like 3:23 PM ET.

Jonathan Schoop:  1/3 with his 5th HR while hitting .279.  Over slight to his right, J.J, Hardy gazes at Schoop and says to himself "yeah this certainly looks familiar,"

Adam Jones:  3/3 with his 4th HR while hitting .300.  After the game Jones called up Evan Longoria and said "Dude we still got this but why does everyone not like us anymore?"  I wish I knew Adam.  

Chris Archer:  6.2 IP 6 H 5 ER 5 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.94.  This fallows Jacob DeGrom dropping six walks on my WHIP in his last outing.  (Turn dryer on and try to get in without making it stop). 

Brad Brach:  scoreless ninth for fourth save with 0.00 ERA.  Brach owners keep sending Zach Britton telegrams saying "hey man take your time coming back and make sure you are 100 percent ready to go."

Scott Schebler:  2/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .191.  I will sign off on NL-only usage but the Chris Davis average is a no-no in mixers for now.

Eric Thames:  2/3 with 2 home runs (10 for season) while hitting .373.  Even Chris Shelton can't believe someone can be this hot in April.

Hernan Perez:  2/4 with his second HR and first SB while hitting .209.  Perez was not a buy I chased one bit as I saw his 2016 as a fluke.  The Brewers did too since they are not actively playing him everyday.

Amir Garrett:  9 ER in 3.1 ERA with an ERA of 5.09.  That traffic jam you see that rivals rush hour in Los Angeles is Amir Garrett heading toward the waiver about 5,000 times this morning.  I mean come on people he was never considered a top prospect and his K/9 was middling in the minors.  This is no shock.

Matt Davidson:  3/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .368.  Davidson has always had power but MASSIVE strikeout problems had previously held him back.  He is still whiffing at a high rate but do what you must here until the bottom falls out on the average.  

Miguel Gonzalez:  8 IP 2 H 1 ER 0 BB 5 K with an ERA of 2.00.  Check out the career ERA's on Gonzalez on a yearly basis and you will be surprised how solid they are.  Guy can pitch and be an excellent SP 5 every season.  

Ryan Zimmerman:  1/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .379.  This really pisses me off because Zimmerman has been garbage for so long now and all of a sudden he is doing this out of the blue for someone else.  And so I hate him all the more.

Charlie Blackmon:  1/5 with his sixth HR while hitting .266.  Blackmon is all slugger now.

Wil Myers:  1/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .345.  No running yet from Myers but we will take the power and health.  

Austin Hedges:  1/3 with his sixth HR while hitting .183. Hedges is a bit too all-or-nothing right not but the power is really picking up.  

David Peralta:  3/4 with his third HR and third SB while hitting .329.  Man I have picked up and dropped Peralta so many times I have lost count.  Looks like I got to add him yet again.  

Zach Greinke:  6 IP 6 H 1 ER 0 BB 11 K with an ERA of 2.93.  Here's the thing.  The velocity has rebounded a bit and so now we are getting this.  Not a novel concept.  

Bud Norris:  scoreless ninth for second save with ERA of 3.38.  Norris walked one and gave up hit but go through it.  If you have stones and needs saves, Norris is the guy.

Matt Cain:  6 IP 2 H 0 ER 1 BB 3 K with an ERA of 2.42.  I guess Matt Cain and Ryan Zimmerman hung out over the winter and figured out a way to push the walkers away for one more season.  However they are doing it.
