Well, some of you might’ve been burned by the A’s/Rangers postponement. I know I was. My opponent, Brian, had Gio going so to have his stats wiped out really, really stinks. Anyway, onto it…
4th and Home Player of the Day: Eric Hosmer – 1/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…First MLB HR as he now sports a line of .250/3/1/3/1 through his first 5 games. Who else would be our player of the day?
Ryan Ludwick – 3/6, R, HR, 3 RBI…Still batting under .200. At this point I think you just forget about him. “Fuhgetabout’em!”
Cameron Maybin – 4/6, 2 R, 2 RBI…Now batting .252 he has greatly increased his BB% (and decreased his K%) this season which is a great sign for a “young” hitter. Yes, young. He is still only 24. Remember, they brought him up when he was 8? Anymahoo, keep an eye on him. Or two. No, just one for now.
Jason Kubel – 2/3, R, HR, 4 RBI…Kubel is batting a sizzling .355 and looks to be back to the player he was two years ago. He might only hit 20 HR, but he has a good shot at driving in 90-100.
Victor Martinez – 3/4, R, HR, 3 RBI…V-Mart continues to rake since his activation. Plug him. Play him.
Drew Stubbs – 2/5, R, HR, RBI, SB…Box score filler-upper (BSFU)!
Curtis Granderson – 2/5, R, HR, 2 RBI, SB….BSFU! Now with 12 dingers to lead all highlanders.
