Matt Holliday:  2/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .262.  Yeah so I said the other day now would be a good time to get Holliday back in your lineup after enduring some early aches and pains due to age.  You would have gotten this home run.

Wade Miley:  5 IP 8 H 2 ER 5 BB 6 K with an ERA of 2.32.  The regression gods have been salivating over this guy for awhile.  More to come.

Aaron Sanchez:  left after one inning in his return from the DL with a split nail.  Sanchez will likely go right back to the DL as his horrid encore to 2016 continues.  Sanchez was not pitching well before the blister/split finger and now he has two DL stints already.  Yes I said loud and clear to avoid Sanchez this season as he was incredibly fluky with his ERA and now we get the injury bug helping my prediction as well.

Chris Archer:  7.1 IP 4 H 1 ER 2 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.43.  Archer had been a bit erratic of late but he is fully back on track now.  Love him.

Alex Colome:  second blown save with 2 ER in .1 IP with an ERA of 3.00.  Early rut for Colome but I am not worried very much here.  He has more than proved himself worthy of being a rare dependable closer in fantasy baseball and instead I am more worried about a July trade taking saves away.

Todd Frazier:  1/3 with his 4th HR while hitting .183.  Frazier has found his power stroke and that can be a thing of beauty in and of itself but damn that average sucks.

Justin Upton:  2/3 with his 5th HR while hitting .290.  So far, so good here.  No wild swings with numbers.....yet.

Josh Bell:  2/4 with his 4th HR and first SB while hitting .257.  It certainly looks like Bell has tapped into power as he has grown from 2016 to this season.  Sign us up as Bell is looking more and more like a very good UTIL or CI upside bat.

Nelson Cruz:  2/3 with his 7th HR while hitting .315,  The guy is just so damn consistent.

Francisco Lindor:  2/5 with his 7th HR while hitting .305.  I thought Lindor would have about 15-18 home runs for the whole season and so he will blow by that by the looks of things.  Like with Josh Bell, physically maturity is likely at work here.

Michael Brantley:  2/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .308.  Would really hate to see this guy coming up in the ninth inning of a tie game.

Anthony Rendon:  6/6 with 3 home runs (3 for season) while hitting .278.  My goodness gracious.  Rendon was the epitome of puke until this one game where he gathers 10!!!!!!!!!!!!! RBI to go with the three bombs.  While I still think Rendon can be a solid fantasy baseball third baseman, be sure not to overvalue one game.

Matt Wieters:  3/4 with 2 home runs (4 for season) while hitting .301.  Yeah my old friend Wieters who I tell you to draft every season is doing his 20-25 home run thing again.  For the cost of nothing at the draft table.

Bryce Harper:  2/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .391.  Harper looked like a chump compared to his Rendon and Wieters in this one.

Noah Syndegaard:  5 ER in 1.1 IP with an ERA of 3.29.  I swear everyone connected to allowing Thor to pitch today should be fired.  He was not right physically and now he is injured more seriously with a lat strain that could keep him out until June.  This one the heels of Yoenis Cespedes suffering a setback with his hamstring as well.  The place is looking like a joke and now Syndegaard is going to be out awhile.  Unreal.

Freddie Freeman:  1/3 with his 9th HR while hitting .381,  It is almost like Freeman and Matt Kemp are taking turns being the hero each game.

Dallas Keuchel:  7.2 IP 3 H 1 ER 2 BB 9 K with an ERA of 1.21.  I mean Keuchel is giving up nothing when it comes to hits and yes I think he can keep up the dominance.

Odubel Herrera:  1/2 with his third HR while hitting .262.  Want to see a bit more out of Herrera overall but his HR rate is up slightly.

Hyun-Jin Ryu:  5.1 IP 3 H 1 ER 3 BB 9 K with an ERA of 4.05.  Ryu has some Robbie Ray in him in terms of combining K's and walks but he should be owned now everywhere.  The training wheels are about to fully come off as well so Ryu should be used liberally.


  1. You like Corbin or Ryu in NL league for the rest of the year?

  2. Corbin. Ryu will tire later in year if he doesn't get hurt first.
