08.15.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

History was made on Monday night by…

4th and Home Player of the Day: Jim Thome – 3/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI…Nos. 599 and 600. Historic and the quietest 600 home runs ever.

The Bats:
Jose Constanza – 3/3, R, RBI…”Can’t-Stand-Ya!” is now batting .414 as he shows Jason Heyward: “Bat – Ball – Hit Ball.”

Delmon Young – 2/4, R, HR, RBI…Traded to Detroit and then cranks one against his former team the SAME day (in his first at bat). Oh man…

Ryan Doumit – 4/4, R, HR, 3 RBI…Now batting .444 with 2 HR and 4 RBI since I saw him play at PNC. You’re welcome.

Derek Jeter – 3/4, R, 3 RBI, SB…Line now at .282/61/4/44/13. Killboy was WAY too nice.

Ryan Braun – 2/4, R, HR, RBI, SB…BSFU! He has an outside shot of the 30/30 club as he’s now sitting at 23/23. I say “nein.”

Troy Tulowitzki – 2/3, 3 R, HR, 2 RBI, SB…Tulow is still going and is now at .303/64/24/84/9. Could wind up being his best season yet. Hanley who?

Casper Wells – 2/3, 2 R, HR, RBI…Still on Seattle and that is now two days in a row with a homer. Now batting .359 with the M’s.

Mike Carp – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…The kid won’t slow down! Ride out the hot streak.

Josh Thole – 3/3, R, HR, 3 RBI…The future is NOW!

Lucas Duda – 3/4, R, HR, RBI…In deeper leagues, I’d smoke the duda. Heck, in a 10-teamer I might!

The Arms:
Randy Wolf
– 8/6/0/5:5…The 11 baserunners didn’t hurt him because it was the Dodgers. In the playoffs, he’ll get crushed.

Ted Lilly – 7/2/1/6:2…Lilly is bouncing back nicely in August, but his overall line still isn’t great.

    tulo #1 overall in 2012? could use a little more in the runs/sb cats for me, but can see the argument for it.

    Especially now with a crap HanRam year. Thin position and you get Tulow’s stats? I could see it…
