08.23.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

Good show last night, chock-full of info. Football rankings rolling out next week.

Onto it!

4th and Home Player of the Day: Seth Smith – 2/3, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, SB…A BSFU in B2B games? Yeah, he’s our POD.

The Bats:
Shin-Soo Choo – 4/8, 2 R, HR, 5 RBI…On Killboy’s bench. Ha!

Kosuke Fukudome – 5/9, 4 R, HR, 2 RBI…On everyone’s wire!

Ryan Braun – 2/3, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 SB…This guy has no business stealing 28 bags in a season. Is he dating Davey Lopes behind Kemp’s back?

Brandon Allen – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…Now batting .394 as an Athletic. Hmm…

Yonder Alonso – 3/4, R, HR, 4 RBI…Have liked this guy through the minors and he did his best Votto impression last night.

Eric Hosmer – 3/5, 2 R, HR, RBI…A BSFU from the big man! Me really likey in 2012.

Aramis Ramirez – 5/5, R, 2 RBI…Batting .343 since the break and coming off the books in 2012. Who is going to overpay for him?

Jason Heyward – 3/4, R, HR, 4 RBI…Salami! That’s what you want to see from your utility player. Yeah, Heyward is in the doghouse for sucking.

Rod Barajas – 3/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…3 HR in his last 10? The Dodgers will be a force in 2012!

Adrian Gonzalez – 3/3, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI…Ruined my night (and Colby Lewis’).

The Arms:
Ian Kennedy
– 7/6/0/8:2…Was the Natty Lights, but he is now 16-4 with a 3.09/1.13. Fantastic!

Vance Worley – 7/5/1/9:1…You have to hope this holds up into the stretch run.

Clayton Kershaw – 6/6/0/8:2…The one guy I wanted on my team this year. Cry, cry, cry.

Alfredo Simon – 8/3/1/8:1…A few decent starts here and there does not warrant a pick-up in a 20-team league.
