Jonathan Schoop:  1/4 with his 22nd HR while hitting .303.  Schoop has been so consistently great this season that he is now boring to talk about.  Now that is something special.

Evan Longoria:  3/4 with his 15th HR while hitting .273.  Longoria won't go back to the 30 home run mark this season like he did in 2016 but everything else is pretty much in normal lines.

Steven Souza Jr.:  1/4 with his 21st HR and sixth SB while hitting .271.  I was forced to cut loose Souza Jr. a few days ago.  Regretting it already.

Alex Cobb:  7 IP 4 H 1 ER 1 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.46.  You would be hard pressed to find anyone pitching as well as this guy right about now.

Didi Gregorios:  1/4 with his16th HR while hitting .307.  Now four homers in the last three games.  Aaron Judge who?

Todd Frazier:  2/3 with his 17th HR while hitting .209.  As a frustrated Frazier owner, I am really hoping his road-heavy splits from his White Sox days means he will kill it at Yankee Stadium.

Luis Severino:  7 IP 3 0 ER 2 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.03.  And just like that Luis Severino is graduating into a fantasy baseball power ace.

J.D. Martinez:  2/4 with 2 home runs (19 for season) while hitting .303.  I would say Martinez is fitting into his home just nicely.

Rafael Devers:  2/4 with his first HR while hitting .250.  And we're off.

Chris Sale:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 1 BB 11 K with an ERA of 2.37.  As if you expected anything less.

Jeff Samardzjia:  7 IP 4 H 1 ER 2 BB 8 K with an ERA of 4.85.  This guy has pitched WORSE than his peripherals all season and so who the heck knows what he will do in any given outing.

Jimmy Nelson:  7 IP 4 H 2 ER 1 BB 10 K with an ERA of 3.38.  Man this guy is becoming a real stud.  Just remember over the last two years who the bigger Nelson and Aaron Nola pusher there was?  Your reading his wrapup right now.

Sean Doolittle:  3 ER in 1 IP with an ERA of 4.26.  Yeah Doolittle is now part of the Nationals ninth inning family of disgrace.  He fit in so seamlessly.  I guess now Ryan Madson is up.

Daniel Murphy:  1/3 with his 17th HR while hitting .340.  Starting to think we got to start putting /340 in ink next to Murphy's projection for 2018.

Lewis Brinson:  1/3 with his first HR while hitting .118.  He looks better this time around already.  More of this and Brinson will be at the top of the lineup before you know it.

Domingo Santana:  2/5 with his 17th HR while hitting .292.  Becoming like my old friend Mike Morse in terms of very cheap 25 homer pop.  Or the legend that was Jermaine Dye.

Cameron Rupp:  2/4 with 2 home runs (9 for season) while hitting .233.  I said in the spring you could do much worse than Rupp as your C 2.

Aaron Nola:  6 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 10 K with an ERA of 3.17.  I am so in love with Nola that my wife is growing concerned.  It was always about the health people.

Justin Smoak:  1/3 with his 28th HR while hitting .297.  It will be all about whether or not Smoak can maintain this average next year in determining just where this stock goes.

Kendrys Morales:  1/3 with his 18th HR while hitting .254.  I expected a bit more out of the average but the aging Morales is likely more of the home run hitting specialist at this getting late stage of his game.

Paul Blackburn:  7 IP 2 H 0 ER 3 BB 3 K with an ERA of 2.25.  The ultimate smoke and mirrors pitchers, it is all going to go very wrong here real soon.

Santiago Casilla:  sixth blown save with 2 ER in 1 IP with an ERA of 4.66.  I guess dust off Blake Treinen?  Yeah that doesn't sound very appealing.

Eric Hosmer:  5/6 with his 16th HR and 5th SB while hitting .319.  I think Hosmer was watching a lot of tape on Jose Altuve over the last few days.

Dee Gordon:  2/6 with his first HR while hitting .291.  It figures in a 22-10 football score of a game that Gordon would get his first home run.  Nice parting gift for me as I traded Gordon for Ender Inciarte.

J.T. Realmuto:  3/6 with his 11th HR while hitting .307.  Yeah the guy I told you all to draft prior to last season has certainly kept it up.  I am so good at this.

Christian Yelich:  4/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .291.  Been waiting to se this from Yelich since the end of April.

Giancarlo Stanton:  3/5 with his 33rd HR while hitting .278.  7 away from 40.

Yu Darvish:  10 ER in 3.2 IP with an ERA of 4.01.  Well that's not a way to boost your trade value.  I think Darvish has mentally checked out of Texas given all the trade rumors which means a deal should be on the way.

Steven Matz:  6 ER in 3 IP with an ERA of 5.51.  The ERA is over 14.00 last four outings.  I am convinced Matz is hurt or he might just really stink.

Brad Hand:  scoreless ninth for fourth save with ERA of 2.08 while Kirby Yates pitches setup.  Pick up Yates as there is a great chance Hand is traded this week.
