Giancarlo Stanton:  2/4 with his 22nd HR in Game 1 while hitting .270.  Stanton is getting set to go nuts as the average is at a season-high and the power is on an every other game basis.  Look out.

Mark Trumbo:  1/3 with his 12th HR in Game 1 while hitting. 261.  What we are seeing right now is vintage and very helpful Mark Trumbo right on down to the combo of a .260 average and awesome pop.

Asdrubal Cabrera:  2/4 with his 16th HR in Game 1 while hitting .282.  The Los Angeles Dodgers are sniffing around Cabrera and heaven's knows the player would walk his way to the West Coast if he could to escape the disgrace that is the Mets.

Maikel Franco:  2/4 with his 11th HR in Game 1 while hitting.271.  Solid season for Franco after the mess of the previous two years.  I always was a sucker for the guy but his overall approach will likely just keep him a backup in mixed fantasy baseball leagues. 

Juan Soto:  1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .301.  I still say Vladimir Guerrero with better patience.

Bryce Harper:  1/4 with his 22nd HR while hitting .218.  The shift is absolutely killing Harper and skewing his BABIP so badly that expecting some massive average turnaround is not automatic. 

Gregory Polanco:  2/3 with his 13th HR and 4th SB while hitting .236.  Looks like Polanco finally realized the season was underway after sleeping the first three months. 

J.D. Martinez:  2/4 with his 28th HR while hitting .331.  I mean Martinez has not let up for even one second this season in terms of his insane assault on opposing pitching.

Steve Pearce:  2/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .330.  This move is already working out nicely for the Red Sox and it can for the fantasy baseball community as you always want to check out bats that make their way to Fenway and who have pop like the veteran does. 

Eduardo Rodriguez:  5.2 IP 3 H 0 ER 3 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.62.  Again either a shutout or a shellacking here. 

Scott Schebler:  4/5 with his 12th HR while hitting .283.  Schebler was always capable of more than what he showed a year ago and he is doing that this season in so far posting a very quality OF 3. 

Joey Votto:  1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .292,  Sorry but I will never criticize or say that Votto has entered a decline phase until he goes through an entire season of such downward results.  Yes the power dip is concerning but I am not having that convo yet. 

Yonder Alonso:  1/3 with his 13th HR while hitting .255.  Alsono has settled into being a useful UTIL or CI bat at this stage of the game and nothing more as 2018 has proved,.

Mike Clevinger:  6 IP 7 H 5 ER 3 BB 11 K with an ERA of 3.34.  I have been getting a lot of tweets about guys being offered Clevinger in deals but my answer is that while he has a live arm, I don't completely trust him.  Also, considering that the first half went as well as could be, the second half really has nowhere to go but down. 

Jesus Aguilar:  1/4 with his 23rd HR while hitting .305.  I'm telling you this is Albert Pujols rookie year all over again. 

Starlin Castro:  2/5 with his 7th HR while hitting .299.  Another quality season from Castro in a recent string of them. 

Brian Anderson:  2/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .284.  I an going with Anderson of late in a money league that plays four outfielders and needless to say, I am happy.

Wilson Ramos:  2/5 with his 13th HR while hitting .291.  One of my best calls in last March's draft guide was to go all-in here.

Brett Gardner:  4/6 with his 7th HR in Game 2 while hitting .260.  Gardner saying he is not done just yet. 

Aaron Nola:  7 IP 1 H 0 ER 1 BB 10 K with an ERA of 2.27.  As long as I have Nola and Eddie Rosario on my teams next season, nothing else matters. 

Stephen Piscotty:  3/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .258.  Told you to pick up Piscotty the other day as he is starting to have that kind of post-hype sleeper campaign that always turns out as an extremely valuable add. 

Gerrit Cole:  6 IP 3 H 0 ER 3 BB 11 K with an ERA of 2.57.  No win to show for this gem but more dominance in a season full of it. 

Wil Myers:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .300.  The guy is just a bit hot right now.
