07.05.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

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!

The Bats:
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.

The Arms:
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.
