Aaron Nola:  7 IP 5 H 1 ER 0 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.46.  Nola had a few hiccups of late but nothing to worry about as evidenced by this start.  The guy has serious strikeout stuff and I said a few years ago he can be a fantasy baseball ace.

Jose Ramirez:  2/3 with 2 home runs (20 for season) while hitting .300.  Has seen a sizable uptick in power this season along with infield mate Francisco Lindor.  Unlike Lindor however, Ramirez has held the .300 average.  Very nice.

Carlos Santana:  1/3 with his 21st HR while hitting .251.  Only use when hot which is right now.

Luis Severino:  6.2 IP 4 H 3 ER 3 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.14.  Severino gave up three homers which accounted for all three earned runs so again so fears of fatigue just yet.

Corey Kluber:  8 IP 3 H 2 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 2.63.  It really is ridiculous how dominant Kluber gets from May onward.

Christian Yelich:  2/3 with his 16th HR while hitting .286.  Nice season for Yelich but we always have that feeling he is capable of a bit more.

Jayson Werth:  2/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .267.  Yeah so that much-criticized contact that is running out at the end of this season was not so outlandish after all.

Max Scherzer:  7 IP 5 H 1 ER 2 BB 10 K with an ERA of 2.21.  Fresh off the DL, Scherzer dominated as usual.  The difference too between Scherzer and a guy with similar overpowering stuff like Chris Archer who give up a lot of home runs is that he finds a way to still win.

Adam Jones:  1/4 with his 25th HR while hitting .279.  Hey so Jones hit 25 home runs.  When have we seen this before?  Like every season of his career.

Justin Smoak:  1/3 with his 36th HR while hitting .289.  Would you spend a fifth round pick on Smoak next spring?  I don't think you would.

Eduardo Nunez:  2/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .310.  Nunez looks like that mid-season pickup who will help the Boston Red Sox win the World Series.  You can just feel it.

Mike Montgomery:  7 IP 6 H 1 ER 0 BB 4 K with an ERA of 3.29.  This guy should have been starting from the get-go.

Lucas Duda:  1/4 with his 25th HR while hitting .235.  Standard operating procedure here.

Logan Morrison:  2/4 with his 32nd HR while hitting .247.  The home runs are nice and all but I still have zero pull to draft Morrison next season.

Wilson Ramos:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .243.  Thought we would get more here when he returned from the DL but Ramos can swing it no doubt.

Jonathan Lucroy:  3/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .251.  Man what a pathetic season from Lucroy.  Sometimes catchers lose it overnight when they reach 30.  Looks like the case here.

Andrew Heaney:  6 IP 2 H 1 ER 3 BB 10 K with an ERA of 5.6.3.  Remember this kid was a top pitching arm in the Miami system.  The talent will bubble to the surface like he showed here with the rust continuing to erode.
