Travis Shaw:  2/4 with his 19th HR while hitting .299.  What was the rush for the Boston Red Sox getting rid of this guy for?

Clint Frazier:  1/4 with his third HR while hitting .292.  Yeah I think Frazier is here to stay.

Masahiro Tanaka:  4.1 IP 6 H 5 ER 1 BB 5 K with an ERA of 5.47.  Two more homers given up by Tanaka as his nightmare of a first half concludes.  You simply cant trust him in any one start given the home run tendencies and honestly we crossed the "cut him loose" bridge weeks ago.

Jose Altuve:  3/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .347.  On pace for yet another career-best in home runs and in the running for another batting title.  When there are more than one "another" in your blub, things are really looking up.

Yuli Gurriel:  2/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .297.  The Houston Astro bats have been so insane this season that Gurriel's breakout is being lost in the noise.

Carlos Correa:  4/5 with 2 home runs (20 for season) while hitting .325.  Oh my goodness has Correa gone nuclear.  Look at that infield for the Astros!  We have a new contender for 2017 fantasy baseball MVP.

Mookie Betts:  1/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .272.  Really think the Red Sox have to consider moving Betts out of the leadoff spot and move him to third, Xander Bogaerts to fifth, and Andrew Benintendi leadoff.

Dustin Pedroia:  2/5 with his 4th HR while hitting .300.  I have to say I was surprised to see Pedroia was hitting .300 since I have been largely ignoring him this season.  Guy has some life left in the bat but it is also mostly empty averages.

Chris Archer:  6.2 IP 8 H 3 ER 2 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.95.  This guy is really testing my patience.  No one should ever get a hit off Archer given his overpowering stuff.

Andrew McCutchen:  1/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .294.  Vintage season for McCutchen who has gone according to scrip in sucking in April and heating up from that point onward.  Yeah we all buried the guy prematurely.  Guilty as charged.

Freddie Freeman:  2/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .348.  Staggers the imagination regarding where the numbers would have been if Freeman had not spent a month on the DL.

Sean Newcomb:  4 IP 4 H 4 ER 4 BB 7 K with an ERA of 4.26.  Newcomb had a thing for the number 4 today I guess.  The control was horrible in the minors and after some early success, Newcomb is starting to revert to his mean which is a very bad thing in fantasy baseball.

Freddy Galvis:  2/4 with 2 home runs (10 for season) while hitting .251.  Each home run is like a punch to the guy to all J.P. Crawford apologists.

Odubel Herrera:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .256.  What a disappointment.

Aaron Altherr:  2/3 with his 14th HR and 5th SB while hitting .284.  Basically Altherr is having the season we thought Herrera would.

Jerad Eickhoff:  5 IP 5 H 0 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 4.63.  I have taken a lot of grief over my devotion to Eickhoff but then again I did as well with Aaron Nola and looked how that turned out.

Adam Jones:  2/4 with 2 home runs (15 for season) while hitting .267.  If Jones had 20 home runs going into the last day of the season. he would hit 5 in the finale to get his customary 25.

Tommy Pham:  3/3 with his 11th HR while hitting .299.  I can fill out an entire fantasy baseball roster with undrafted guys like this who lit things up.

Paul DeJong:  2/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .313.  The Cardinals know how to draft players I tell you.

Lance Lynn:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 1 BB 2 K with an ERA of 3.61.  No fatigue just yet.

Charlie Blackmon:  1/4 with his 20th HR while hitting .319.  Watch Blackmon go out and win the Home Run Derby since it will go along with the fact no one foresaw power like this from him the entire 2017 season.

Kyle Freeland:  8.1 IP 1 H 0 ER 3 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.77.  You should get two wins for having a fantasy baseball pitcher throw like this in Coors Field.

Justin Turner:  2/4 with 2 home runs (10 for season) while hitting .377.  People always forget to mention Turner when discussing the very best pure hitters in the game.

Clayton Kershaw:  9 IP 6 H 2 ER 0 BB 13 K with an ERA of 2.18.  Take that Chris Sale.


  1. What's with Kyle Seager? Sucks this year.

    1. everyone allowed an off year. was a model of consistency prior. still time for big finish.
