Didi Gregorious:  2/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .289.  Gregorious has seen his average dip sharply the last three weeks bridging the All-Star break but he now seems here to stay for the next few years as an everyday shortstop without speed.

C.C. Sabathia:  6 IP 2 H 0 ER 5 BB 3 K with an ERA of 3.54.  Sabathia was wild in this one but he seems safe to use again in AL-only and deep mixers.

Lucas Duda:  1/4 with his 15th HR while hitting .243.  The shellacking the Mets took today could make Duda expendable any day now.  Half the parks in baseball would improve his already potent power.    i/3 wi

Nolan Arenado:  2/6 with his 18th HR while hitting .305.  As boring a guy to talk about in fantasy baseball in an ultra-productive kind of way.

Charlie Blackmon:  2/6 with his 21st HR while hitting .320.  Just seeing Blackmon competing in that fantastic Home Run Derby last week tells you all you need to know how great a year Blackmon is having.

Gerardo Parra:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .337.  Remember David Dahl?  I don't either.

Steven Matz:  7 ER in 1 IP with an ERA of 4.58.  Point, click, RELEASED!

Justin Turner:  2/3 with his 11th HR while hitting .374.  This is what Ichiro would look like back in the day with power.  Damn Justin Turner.

Rich Hill:  5 IP 5 H 1 ER 0 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.55.  Funny a seemingly simple blister was more trouble than major league hitters for Hill this season.

J.D. Martinez:  1/2 with his 16th HR and second SB while hitting .308.  The Detroit front office has a big smile on their face when Martinez homers with the trade deadline approaching.

Justin Smoak:  2/5 with his 24th HR while hitting .290.  I guess Smoak for Cliff Lee is not the joke it once was.

Kendrys Morales:  1/3 with his 17th HR while hitting .252.  Prior to the season, I would have drafted Morales 100 times out of 100 over Smoak.

Marco Estrada:  4 ER in 3.2 IP with an ERA of 5.33.  There is no end in sight with the wrath of the regression fairies.

Daniel Murphy:  3/4 with 2 home runs (16 for season) while hitting .348.  The last season-plus from Murphy have been quite possibly the best pure hitting I have seen since Miguel Cabrera's heyday.

Anthony Rendon:  2/5 with his 19th HR while hitting .316.  Yeah so I guess Rendon is back in play as a top 24 pick next season huh?

Homer Bailey:  8 ER in 4 IP with an ERA of 10.13.  Yeah he still sucks.

Matt Adams:  1/4 with his 15th HR while hitting .291.  I love Matt Adams for his unexpected breakout power season and for having Freddie Freeman move to third and gain eligibility.

Matt Kemp:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .294.  You get the feeling Kemp should be having a much better season given the way he started.

Jaime Garcia:  7 IP 4 H 1 ER 3 BB 7 K with an ERA of 4.33.  Yeah Garcia can help a contender.

Kris Bryant:  3/4 with his 19th HR while hitting .277.  I love Bryant to death but I expected more and so did 99.9 percent of his owners.  Except of course for the .01 that is his mom who is happy with him doing his best.

Anthony Rizzo:  1/5 with his 22nd HR while hitting .257.  Not really digging the home run and nothing else approach from Rizzo this season.

Jose Quintana:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 0 BB 12 K with an ERA of 4.20.  Welcome to the NL Mr. Quintana.  We know you and your fantasy baseball owners will enjoy their stay.

Mike Fiers:  7 IP 4 H 2 ER 0 BB 11 K with an ERA of 3.75.  It always seems like we are talking about Fiers as a fantasy baseball boost in late July onward.

Avisail Garcia:  2/5 with 2 home runs (13 for season) while hitting .313.  Now into his fourth month of breakout production, it is safe to say Garcia has seen the hitting light bulb go on.

Kyle Seager:  2/5 with his 12th HR while hitting .251.  So yeah 24 hours ago I tweeted that if you were to buy low on a third baseman, this guy would be it.  How is that working out so far?

Nelson Cruz:  1/3 with his 19th HR while hitting .292.  Second game in a row with a homer for Cruz just like Seager.  It is like the two decided to homer every day the rest of the season together.

Logan Morrison:  2/4 with his 26th HR while hitting .257.  Yeah he probably should have been in the Derby like he said.
