All-Star break is coming, so is the trade deadline. July is such a great month.
4th and Home Player of the Day: Derek Holland – 4-hit SHO/7:2…Jekyll showed up. Or Hyde.
Jason Heyward – 3/4, R, HR, 2 RBI, SB…J-Hey with the BSFU! Good to know he’s still alive. What a keeper!
Freddie Freeman – 3/4, R, HR, 3 RBI…I thought he was owned in my league and then I saw he got picked up. Idiot! Note to self: Never assume someone is owned. Always check the wire.
B.J. Upton – 2/4, R, HR, 3 RBI…Well, one Upton homered!
Ben Zobrist – 3/3, 2 R, HR, RBI…The Year of the Zobrist!
Travis Hafner – 3/5, R, HR, 4 RBI…Walk-off Salami!
Justin Upton – 1/4, R, HR, 2 RBI…The other Upton homered! Wonder how many times that has happened in the same day? Anyone? Anyone?
Ben Revere – 3/5, 2 R, 2 RBI, SB…Upside is there. Take a chance. Maybe you can break the Bank.
Peter Bourjos – 3/4, RBI…Injured and rumor is Mike Trout is being called up. Keeper leaguers unite!
Carlos Villanueva – 6/6/0/7:2…I chuckled when Jesse picked him up, but look at his stats…I’ll wait.
Brad Hand – 7/2/0/4:3…After sending Spicoli to detention, Mr. Hand pitched a gem and then took a bus to AAA.
Clayton Kershaw – 8/5/0/9:2…my NL Cy pick keeps mowing teams down. Guy is a stud.
Barry Zito – 8/4/1/7:0…He start surfing again? Some may want to grab him if available.
Cory Luebke – 6/5/2/8:1…Speaking of adds, this guy seems to be the real deal. Buckeye!
Jered Weaver – CG/6/1/6:1…Ho hum. Another start, another gem.
Be sure to keep a look out for my May and June recaps of the “September Star” series.
