Michael Conforto:  0/3 while hitting .228.  Sigh!

Dylan Bundy:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 3 BB 5 K with an ERA of 4.04.  Nice outing but sorry I am not giving much praise for shutting down the New York Mets who are the worst offensive team in the majors right now.

Zack Wheeler:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 1 BB 5 K with an ERA of 4.57.  You know the Baltimore Orioles are mailing it in when they make this guy look good.

C.J. Cron:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .260.  Really need Cron to keep the average above .260 as he will look like just another flawed slugger that is available all over the wire.

Tanner Roark:  2 ER in 6 IP with an ERA of 3.56.  With a 1.10 WHIP, Roark has a 3-6 record to go with the decent ERA.  The wins category sucks.

Carlos Carrasco:  7 IP 8 H 1 ER 1 BB 10 K with an ERA of 4.23. Talk up the shaky ERA and try to steal Carrasco away from his unsuspecting owner.  Advanced metrics are bullish.

Paul Goldschmidt:  4/5 with 2 RBI while hitting .233.  On July 6th the real Paul Goldschmidt finally showed up.

Freddie Freeman:  1/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .338.  Yeah so that batting title we always talked about here?  It could be upon us.

Ozzie Albies:  1/4 while hitting .261.  So the power has dried up a bit and the average is sinking which means Albies has reached the point where opposing pitchers have a plan against him.  Now it is time for Albies to adjust back/

Mike Foltynewicz:  5 IP 5 H 2 ER 3 BB 8 K with an ERA of 2.31.  Folty is still not giving length to his starts but the K's have been ace-like to say the least.  Terrific breakout now in its third month.

Matt Kemp:  3/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .353.  This encore in Los Angeles with the Dodgers has been one show that has been very impressive to say the least. 

Cody Bellinger:  1/3 with his 10th HR while hitting .227.  Back into the fifth hole for this one, Bellinger has now gone long in two games in a row.  A little 7th spot demotion humble pie seems to have done the trick. 

Caleb Ferguson:  4 ER in 1.2 IP with an ERA of 21.60.  Yeah he may need some more seasoning. 

Trevor Williams:  4 ER in 3 IP with an ERA of 4.18.  And now the ERA is over 4.00 like I said it would be when Williams shot out of the gates in April looking like a breakout guy.  No way was he ever that. 

Aaron Judge:  1/5 with his 17th HR while hitting .274.  And just one strikeout too!

Giancarlo Stanton:  1/4 with his 14th HR while hitting .251.  We cant change how ugly April and May were at times but Stanton seems primed for a big summer as he is swinging as well as he has all season now. 

Sonny Gray:  8 IP 2 H 0 ER 2 BB 8 K with an ERA of 4.81.  This won't make me run out to pick Gray as name brand be damned, he has to show this was not a once a month fluke.  Gray has been so brutal that he has lost the benefit of the doubt. 

Andrew Benintendi:  2/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .296.  Look out here as Benintendi seems like he is now aiming for first-round status for 2019.  I think he could get there. 

Eduardo Rodriguez:  5.2 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.68.  You need patience with this guy sometimes but Rodriguez has some of the best movement on his stuff I have seen in the entire league this season.

Khris Davis:  2/4 with his 15th HR while hitting .241.  Davis and the Matt Trio have turned Oakland into the rare team in the recent organization's history to be a home run hitting juggernaut. 

Jurickson Profar:  3/5 with 2 home runs (6 for season) while hitting .243.  I mean he was the most hyped prospect for a while there a few seasons ago for a reason.

Joey Gallo:  1/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .207.  I don't even like talking about Gallo given how ridiculous his all-or-nothing game is.  As overrated as it gets. 

Daniel Medgden:  6 ER in 4 IP with an ERA of 3.45.  Statistical correction at its finest. 

Anthony Rizzo:  1/3 with his 9th HR while hitting .251.  Hey its not that far to .280 all of a sudden. 

Jose Quintana:  5.2 IP 3 H 2 ER 2 BB 10 K with an ERA of 4.20.  Better.  Unlike Sonny Gray, Quintana has earned the right to now he used liberally again.

Nelson Cruz:  2/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .260.  Hope you bought low when I told you to on Cruz as the power is flowing and the average is climbing as anticipated.

Evan Gattis:  2/3 with his 9th HR while hitting .227.  Should already be back in the lineup in two-catcher formats. 

Lewis Brinson:  3/5 with 2 home runs (9 for season) while hitting .172.  It is almost like Brinson closes his eyes when he swings and hopes he makes contact to hit one out.
