Manny Machado:  4/4 with 2 home runs (15 for season) while hitting .227.  What no stolen base?

Jonathan Schoop:  2/4 with his 14th HR while hitting .289.  Man I see Bret Boone whenever I watch Schoop.

Edwin Encarnacion:  2/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .265.  Looks like I got to update the Status Report I am posting on Encarnacion later today.  7 home runs in the last 12 games now.

Aaron Judge:  1/4 with his 24th HR while hitting .333.  Even Judge can't save the sinking New York Yankees (7 straight losses) right now.

Gary Sanchez:  1/3 with his 12th HR while hitting .288.  The first two months were rough but I will say now that Sanchez is beating me in my argument he would go bust this season.

Cameron Maybin:  3/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .279.  Me and most everyone else in the fantasy baseball community are kicking themselves for not picking up Maybin off waivers when they had the chance.

Jedd Gyorko:  1/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .289.  Like air slowly leaking out of a balloon, notice how Gyorko's average has dripped, dripped, dripped its way downward since his scorching start?

Yadier Molina:  1/5 with his 9th HR while hitting .261.  Molina has tapped into some unexpected power this season which is a nice bonus for a guy who is always a tremendous fantasy baseball buy.

Mike Leake:  6 IP 3 H 1 ER 2 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.03.  Leake halts a very rough three weeks stretch that shot his ERA up more than a run.  Or as I like to call it, regression back to the Mike Leake mean.

Corey Dickerson:  2/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .327.  Seems like Dickerson is 2-for-4 every single night.  What a year.

Joey Votto:  1/5 with his 20th HR while hitting .307.  Speaking of what a year, Votto's power is ridiculous this season.  With even veterans like Votto, Ryan Zimmerman, Yonder Alonso, Molina adding power sharply this season, it lends credence to the juiced ball theory for sure.

Marcell Ozuna:  2/4 with his 19th HR while hitting .333.  The best fantasy baseball offensive season no one is talking about.

Daniel Murphy:  2/3 with his 12th HR while hitting .346.  Here is a good debate:  who is the better pure hitter, Murphy or Votto?  Answer in comments section.

Gio Gonzalez:  7 IP 6 H 3 ER 2 BB 8 K with an ERA of 2.96.  I own Gio in the Experts League but I really didn't want to as I was tired of his inconsistent act but he is having a great season so far.  Yet another veteran value play jackpot.

Andrew McCutchen:  3/3 with his 14th HR while hitting .268.  McCutchen has impressed Jason Vorhees with the way he has risen from the fantasy baseball dead.

Anthony Rizzo:  1/3 with his 17th HR while hitting .268.  Rizzo hit yet another leadoff homer.  Any day now look for Paul Goldschmidt leading off for the D-Backs.

Ian Happ:  1/3 with his 9th HR while hitting .218.  That's 4 home runs since I cut Happ when I had a serious roster crunch.  Yup even I am an idiot in this racket sometimes.

Mike Montgomery:  6 IP 3 H 0 ER 2 BB 4 K with an ERA of 2.26.  Montgomery was once a highly admired prospect so don't dismiss his performance.  He is well worth picking up where available as the fastball can tough the upper 90's and Montgomery keeps the baseball in the park.

Adrian Beltre:  1/3 with his second HR while hitting .295.  Wow it has been a nasty campaign for Beltre so far.  Whatever he does from here on out is window dressing.

Nomar Mazara:  1/3 with his 10th HR while hitting .279.  Mazara seems to be in one of those hot streaks he showed in early April so ride it out or make the add.  You know the drill by now.

Miguel Sano:  2/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .290.  Man a .413 BABIP and 34.7 K/9 rates are just insane as the crash is coming but boy Sano has done his best to hold it off so far.

Avisail Garcia:  3/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .339.  A .411 BABIP doesn't jive here as well and neither does a 4.4 BB/9 but like with Sano, Garcia has used his magic to ward off regression evil.  Still this is a nice post-hype sleeper made good story so far.

Jose Abreu: 4/5 with his 12th HR while hitting .303.  So it took 2.5 months but Abreu is back to hitting .300.  You know like usual.

Ervin Santana:  6 ER in 5 IP with an ERA of 2.97.  The nasty outings are beginning to show up more frequently but they almost had to.

Mike Moustakas:  1/3 with his 19th HR while hitting .277.  If the Royals weren't such a putrid team, Moustakas would have gotten so much more fantasy baseball pub then he has gotten.

Chris Sale:  8.1 IP 4 H 3 ER 1 BB 10 K with an ERA of 2.85.  Standard operating EXCELLENT procedure.

Corey Seager:  4/5 with 3 home runs (12 for season) while hitting .293.  Saw some fantasy baseball so-called experts call Seager overrated coming into the season.  Yeah all right.
