Who said to sell Mark Reynolds high? Two more homers from him last night. Can I give him a raise now?
SP, Jordan Zimmerman, Nationals-Zimmerman pitched 7 solid innings last night holding the Red Sox to one run on 5 hits while striking out 6. This guy is good. H ehas given up 2 runs or less in 5 of his last 6 starts, with a 37/9 K/BB ratio
1B, Jake Fox, Cubs-Fox went 3 for 4with a HR and 3 RBI for the Cubs on Thursday. Where does he play when Aramis Ramirez returns? Lou Piniella has to get him in the lineup at least 4 times a week. I can see a scenario where he plays 1B, 3B, LF and RF spelling Derrek Lee, Ramirez, Alfonso Soriano and Milton Bradley at least once a week.
SS, Derek Jeter, Yankees-Jeter has 4 hits, 4 runs scored and his 17th SB of the season last night. Can he steal 40 bags??
SS, Hanley Ramirez, Marlins-HanRam went 3 for 5 with a HR, SB and 5 RBI last night. Hanley now has 11 HR and 47 RBI to go along with his .335 Avg and 11 SBs. Roto owners probably expected more HRs and SBs to this point, but you have to be happy with his Avg and RBI totals.
SP, Sean West, Marlins-West shut out the Orioles for 6 innings to win his 3rd game of the season. The Marlins rotation of Josh Johnson, Ricky Nolasco, West, and Chris Volstadt may make some noise in the NL East race in due time.
3B, Mark Reynolds, Diamondbacks-Reynolds hit 2 more HRs and drove in 4 to bring his season total to 21 HRs and 53 RBI, and we are still more than 2 weeks to the All-Star break. We will see him playing during that break, I am sure.
