Well, Seattle promoted Dustin Ackley days before the scheduled Monday call-up, so go on and grab him if you can.
4th and Home Player of the Day: Josh Beckett – 1-hit SHO/6:0…We’ve seen some dominating performances the past two nights and this ranks right up there with Verlander’s.
Jimmy Rollins – 2/5, R, HR, 4 RBI…J-Roll stayed hot in game one of the double-header vs. the Fish.
Wilson Valdez – 3/4, R, 3 RBI…No place for him to play in that infield.
Shane Victorino – 2/5, R, 2 RBI, 2 SB…He only has 11 SBs? Well, 20 is in the bag and he has an outside shot at going 20/30.
Mark Teixeira – 3/5, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…Teix is now tied with Grandy and Bautista for the league lead with 21 homers. He’s been on fire!
Robinson Cano – 2/5, R, HR, 3 RBI, SB…BSFU!
Eduardo Nunez – 2/4, R, HR, RBI, 2 SB…BFSU2!
Ian Kinsler – 2/3, 2 R, HR, RBI, SB…BFSU3!
Charlie Blackmon – 3/4, R, RBI, SB…All he’s done is steal bases upon his promotion!
Adam Lind – 2/3, R, HR, 2 RBI…Staying hot. What a draft-day bargain.
Scott Rolen – 3/5, 2 R, 3 RBI…Rolen hasn’t been that great this year – and Phillie fans hate him. There!
Mike Morse – 3/4, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI…So glad I dropped him when he was struggling. Idiot!
Danny Espinosa – 2/4. 2 R, HR, RBI…Besides hitting .226, he provides decent infield power.
Michael Cuddyer – 2/3, 2 R, 3 SB…THREE STOLEN BASES? Who does he think he is?
Angel Pagan – 2/4, R, HR, 2 RBI…Killboy was right on with Pagan.
Kyle Kendrick – 7/5/1/5:1…Kendrick flashing ace-like “stuff”!
Jhoulys Chacin – 6/3/1/7:2…Chacin keeps on dealing!
Ricky Romero – 8/3/1/12:4…Wow. Romero is repeating a very fine 2010.
Livan Hernandez – 3-hit SHO/6:0…Beckett’s was still better, but this was brilliant.
Carl Pavano – CG/6/1/5:3…Pavano has quietly put up 3-straight strong starts (2 CG).
Josh Outman – 7/4/0/2:2…READ.
Erik Bedard – 7/3/0/5:0…Man. Another guy I am so glad I dropped. But if you follow me, you would’ve known to monitor him and pick him up. I had no room, but I sure could find some now!
Be sure to keep a look out for my May recaps of the “September Star” series.
