Good show last night. Lots of good info for your stretch run, especially for playing the “Spot Starting Carousel.”
4th and Home Player of the Day: James Shields – 6-hit SHO/8:3…8 CGs and 11 wins. Who does he think he is, Roy Halladay?
Martin Prado – 4/6, R, HR, 3 RBI…More hits last night than he’s had all year (it seems).
Bobby Abreu – 2/5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI…Tied it in the 6th and then won it in the 9th.
Josh Willingham – 1/3, R, HR, 2 RBI…On queue from Killboy on air last night, JWill homers.
Evan Longoria – 2/3, R, HR, 4 RBI…Was just thinking how much of a slump Longo’s in and then voila.
Justin Upton – 3/5, 3 R, HR, 4 RBI…First rounder next year? Could be…
J.D. Martinez – 2/4, 2 R, HR, RBI…Now 4 homers in 9 starts.
Brandon Beachy– 6.2/3/2/10:3…Maybe his 2012 price will be a bit too high, but I’ll be inclined to pay.
Dontrelle Willis – 8/5/3/10:1…First double-digit K performance since August 14th of ’07!
Matt Garza – 6/6/3/9:2…If not for the longball, Garza would’ve gotten a W.
Rich Harden – 7/5/1/8:2…All you needed was for Jesse to drop him! Take a chance.
Cliff Lee – 8/4/0/10:3…Vintage Lee outduels Lilly.
Madison Bumgarner – 7/4/0/10:1…As I’ve said before, he’s going to turn into a SP1 very soon.
Coming soon…the July Review of my September Stars Series…
