Did you catch Jesse on The 4th and Home Show last night?
4th and Home Player of the Day: Curtis Granderson – 3/6, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI…A 50/30 season? Possible now!
Aramis Ramirez – 1/4, R, HR, 2 RBI…That makes 8 HR in his last 12 games. Yeah, his power is back.
Derek Jeter – 2/6, R, 2 RBI…4 hits shy of 3,000 now.
Brandon Wood – 2/3, R, HR, 3 RBI…Oh yeah, I remember this guy. Quad-A stud.
Jose Bautista – 2/4, R, HR, 2 RBI…No. 28 and counting.
Matt Holliday – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…Holliday seems to produce more power in the second half in his old age. Looks like he’s starting early this year.
Dan Uggla – 2/2, 2 R, HR, RBI…Uggly is trying to get back on owner’s good side.
Mark Ellis – 3/4, R…Now 11/22 since the trade. Sell high!
Raul Ibanez – 3/5, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI…His 2nd 3-hit game in his last 10 games. It’s a start!
Ryan Howard – 4/5, 3 R, HR, 4 RBI…Big night. 71 Ribbies and counting.
Paul Konerko – 3/5, R, HR, 2 RBI…And you thought he cooled off.
Prince Fielder – 2/4, R, HR, 2 RBI…302/22/71. Contract year? Of course.
Jason Bay – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…Just swapped S.Drew for him this morning.
C.C. Sabathia – 7/5/0/11:2…Averaging 12 K over his last two starts. That’s what you like to see. I think CC is in for a big 2nd half.
Jeff Karstens – 7/7/1/3:0…This is getting just a bit ridiculous now: 7-4/2.55/1.07.
Brett Cecil – CG/7/3/6:2…Encouraging start. Still took the loss.
Jon Lester – 4/0/0/5:1…Left early. DL-stint possible, but Lester says no.
Scott Baker – 5/3/0/3:1…Also left early, but with a “W”.
Cole Hamels – 8/8/2/5:1…Guess the hand is fine.
Felix Hernandez – 8/4/1/10:0…Four of his last 10 starts have resulted in double-digit Ks. E….LITE (elite).
Dan Haren – 2-hit SHO/9 K…In a duel with fantasy’s number one, Haren dominated the Tigers.
Justin Verlander – 7.2/7/1/8:2…Remains No.1.
Be sure to keep a look out for my May and June recaps of the “September Star” series.
