Seeing Bryce Harper tonight if the rain holds off. If they play, I am calling for a homer!
4th and Home Player of the Day: Mark Teixeira – 3/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, SB…A BSFU from Teix? What is this world coming to? Besides the terrible average, he has MVP numbers.
Ian Desmond – 2/3, 2 R, HR, 3RBI….Was a nice night during a disappointing season for him.
Brennan Boesch – 3/4, 2 R, HR, RBI…BSFU in the rain. That is STRONG!
Nelson Cruz/Mike Napoli – 4/9, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…If I told you one of them was batting .264 and the other .294, would you be surprised by the answer?
Garrett Jones – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…May lose playing time with Ludwick in town.
Alfonso Soriano – 2/5, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…19 homers and a DL-stint? Bounceback!
Omar Infante – 3/5, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…A 2-homer night from Infante? Might be the last time you’ll see that.
Matt Holliday – 2/5, 3 R, HR, RBI…Target him, but only if you trust Killboy and me after last night’s show.
Ryan Howard – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…Someone loves Hunter Pence.
Paul Goldschmidt – 1/3, R, HR, 2 RBI…First homer in his second game off of Lincecum nonetheless. Wow.
Randy Wells – 6/5/2/7:1…Shut down a slumping Pirates team.
David Huff – 5/3/0/6:2…Solid since his recall. Check him out.
Ricky Romero – 8/1/1/7:4…Dominating. I grossly underestimate this guy every year.
Homer Bailey – 8/5/1/4:3…Start him again and he will destroy your ERA. I am done with Homer.
Mark Reynolds – 3/5, 2 R, HR, 5 RBI…On pace for a .224/80/35/90/7 season. Did you listen to me?
Phil Hughes – 3-hit SHO/4:0…Gotta love those rain-shortened complete games! I think I would pick him up about now, despite the talk of him moving to the bullpen.
Kyle Kendrick – 8/4/0/7:2…Oswalt who?
Ervin Santana – CG/8/1/7:2…B2B gems.
Hiroki Kuroda – 7/4/0/8:2…Not traded and took it out on the Friars.
Mat Latos – 7/6/1/6:0…Still waiting for his arm to fall off.
Daniel Hudson – 8/6/1/5:1…Take THAT Lincecum!
Tim Lincecum – 7/3/2/8:3…Tough loss for him AND me.
Coming soon…the July Review of my September Stars Series…
