Today we celebrate Minnesota fans across the country.
Onto the tidbits…
4th and Home Player of the Day: Madison Bumgarner – 0.1/9/8/1:0…Thank you Mr. Bumgarner for destroying my ERA this week. Today is the Minnesota edition of the BSB, so YOU are the POD.
Seth Smith – 3/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI…This guy is getting no love despite his overall line of .316/36/8/32/3.
Jose Tabata – 2/5, 2 R, 2 RBI…I am feeling a strong summer from Tabata.
Kevin Youkilis – 4/5, RBI…Greek God of Walks upped his average to .276. Room to grow.
Torii Hunter – 4/5, R, RBI…Remember when Bonds picked him up over his shoulder after Torii robbed him of a home run at the All-Star game? Yeah, that was the last time he was relevant.
Jason Bay – 3/3, R, HR, 2 RBI…Earning that contract!
Jemile Weeks – 1/3, 3 R, 2 SB…Oh yeah, he’s fast. Faster than Rickie.
Alex Gordon – 3/4, R, HR, 2 RBI…I think he’s a buy right now actually.
Carlos Ruiz – 4/4, R, RBI…Chooch joined in the comeback fun during a 9-run 8th.
Josh Hamilton – 1/4, R, HR, RBI…See yesterday’s Breakdown.
Michael Bourn – 3/5, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 SB…Top 25 and rising!
Paul Konerko – 2/3, R, HR, RBI…Five home runs in last five games.
Matt Kemp – 0/3, 2 SB…He is now at 20/20 through 46% of the season. Just sayin’…
Doug Fister – 8/3/1/3:1…If he pitched for the Sawx, everyone would own him.
Jhoulys Chacin – 6.2/2/1/7:6…Wacky line after we talked about him last night.
Mike Minor – 7/5/1/8:1…Great start, then back to AAA. Loved him pre-season until Beachy showed up.
Javier Vasquez – 5.1/10/0/4:0…This guy is a headache, although he did stop the bleeding for the Fish.
Josh Outman – 6/4/1/4:2…Pick him up before the rest of the world catches on.
Zach Greinke – 7/4/1/10:0…Greinke’d the Rays and Hellboy.
Be sure to keep a look out for my May recaps of the “September Star” series. No, I haven’t forgotten…
