08.09.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

Good show last night. Lots of good info for your stretch run, especially for playing the “Spot Starting Carousel.”

Onto it!

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?

The Bats:
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.

The Arms:
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.
