Joey Votto:  1/4 with his 34th HR while hitting .310.  This is why we always wailed against Votto taking so many walks the last few seasons.  Look what he does when he swings it.  Wow.

Scooter Gennett:  2/4 with his 23rd HR while hitting .287.  I trust in what Gennett is doing this season like I did what Brad Miller did a year ago.

Jose Altuve:  2/4 with his 21st HR while hitting .355.  I mean 21 home runs with all those steals and that average is insane.  Truly insane.

A.J. Pollock:  3/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .264.  Batting sixth is just stupid and ridiculous but we are starting to get to the point where 2015 is looking like a major outlier.

Chris Iannetta:  1/2 with his 13th HR while hitting .239.  Iannetta is still very limited but in two catcher formats he has made the grade as a useful player who cost just a waiver pick.

Zack Greinke:  6 IP 4 H 1 ER 2 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.08.  No letup from Greinke in this massive comeback season.  Never saw it coming that is for sure.

Kenta Maeda:  7 ER in 3 IP with an ERA of 4.19.  Yeah so I had Maeda down as a bust this past spring given the usage and elbow issues that are under the surface.  Yup.

Gary Sanchez:  2/5 with his 28th HR while hitting .272.  What you don't want to have happen here is that Sanchez continues to be such an abomination behind the dish that he moves to DH and loses catcher eligibility eventually.  Things are getting that bad.

Greg Bird:  2/4 with his third HR while hitting .154.  Upwards and onward we go.

C.C. Sabathia:  6 IP 4 H 1 ER 5 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.71.  At this lats stage of his career and given the troubles of 2014-15, it is remarkable Sabathia is where he is now with his ERA which is a clear testament to adjusting to his stuff.

Kendrys Morales:  4/5 with 3 home runs (25 for season) while hitting .253.  Morales also added 7 RBI.  Solid is the name of the game once again for Morales but his days of hitting even over .260 appear finished.

Adam Jones:  2/5 with his 26th HR while hitting .281.  So ridiculous that since he stopped running, many in the fantasy baseball community suddenly wanted nothing to do with Jones anymore.  This is what happens.

Marco Estrada:  6 ER in 5 IP with an ERA of 5.23.  This is what happens when you mess with the regression fairies two years running.

Kris Bryant:  2/5 with his 25th HR while hitting .293.  There are like 15-17 first round talents for 2018 fantasy baseball but this guy better stay in the top 12 in all leagues.  What a talent.

Jonathan Villar:  3/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .238.  It's too late bro.  We hate you.
