It was Thursday, so not a full slate of games. Short Breakdown today…
4th and Home Player of the Day: Aubrey Huff – 4/4, 3 R, 3 HR, 6 RBI…Aubrey Huff pulling this performance out of the George “Taco” Bell 1988 archives…
Carlos Beltran – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI…He’s not the Beltran we all remember, but he’s having a good enough year to make us think he’s still in his prime.
Neil Walker – 2/5, R, HR, 4 RBI…37 RBI now for the Bucs’ cleanup hitter. He’s like the NL Cano this year!
Xavier Paul – 4/5, 3 R, RBI, 2 SB…Did he wear Tabata’s jersey from April yesterday?
Endy Chavez – 4/4, 2 R, RBI, SB…When your #9 hitter does this, you’re gonna win.
Colby Rasmus – 2/5, R, HR, 6 RBI…Guy finally goes yard after I trade him. Figures!
Mike Morse – 4/5, 2 R, 2 RBI…Now he’s getting into his groove. If you didn’t pick him up, do so before he cools.
Carlos Peguero – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR 4 RBI…Much like Endy and the Rangers. When you’re #9 hitter does this…
Matt Joyce – 2/4, R, HR, RBI, SB…BSFU! Joyce continues to produce. I own him. Do you?
Chris Johnson – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…Quiet this year as that strong second half last year seems like a distant memory.
Jordan Zimmerman – 7 IP, 6 H, ER, 4:1…Despite the (3-6) record, Zimm has given owners a reason to be happy this year. Sure, more K would be nice.
Felix Hernandez – 7 IP, 5 H, ER, 11:2…Wow. Now that’s what you want. A dominating bounceback game.
James Shields – 4 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 4:3…And that’s NOT what you want from one of the top SP’s this year- especially against the light-hitting M’s.
Be sure to keep a look out for my May recaps of the “September Star” series.
