08.10.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

Some hot prospects going yard? Lack of pitching gems? Tell me more!

4th and Home Player of the Day: Jason Kipnis – 5/5, 4 R, HR, 3 RBI…I keep debating picking this guy up, because he will go cold once I do. Would like to see him walk more.

The Bats:
Juan Rivera – 3/4, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI…He’s actually been pretty decent for the Dodgers.

Matt Kemp – 4/5, 2 R, RBI, SB…4 HR to reach 30/30 status – you heard it pre-season from me on The 4th and Home Show.

Ryan Howard – 2/3, 3 R, HR, 2 RBI…Capped the comeback with a longball.

Andrew McCutchen – 1/1, 4 R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 SB…Now this was a BSFU by Cutch.

Ryan Ludwick – 3/4, 2 R, RBI…Batting .303 as a Pirate.

Curtis Granderson – 2/3, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…Out of this world.

Robinson Cano – 3/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…Heating up, like Jesse talked about.

Logan Morrison – 2/4, R, HR, RBI, SB…LoMo with the BSFU. Nice!

Dan Uggla – 3/5, 2 RBI…The streak stays alive!

J.J. Hardy – 4/5, R, HR, RBI…No. 21 from the two-hole!

Will Venable – 4/5, 3 R, RBI…Batting .322 since his recall. Time to grab him if you need speed.

Brett Lawrire – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI…Salami!

Melky Cabrera – 2/3, R, HR, 5 RBI…Not traded – still hitting. I like Melky heading into the playoffs too.

Mike Carp – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…You could do worse.

The Arms:
Jeff Karstens
– 6/8/2/9:0…Got torched when I saw him. I’ll let you know the next Bucs game I go to where he pitches, so you know to bench him.

Tim Hudson – 7.1/6/2/7:1…Guy disappears for awhile and then reappears as his former A’s self. Love him heading into the playoffs.

Coming soon…the July Review of my September Stars Series…
