Roto Roundup From Saturday

Here are a few highlights from Saturday's games:

Paul Maholm-apparently his spring training stats were a precursor of what to expect from him in 2009. He threw 7 innings, giving up 3 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts against the Reds on Saturday afternoon for his first victory of the season.

Albert Pujols-King Albert slugged 2 HRs and drove in 7 runs in the Cardinals win over the Astros. He appears to be on track for another MVP season.

Carlos Marmol-he earned the save vs the Brewers last night by fanning Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder with a man on second base. Manager Lou Piniella chose Marmol over closer Kevin Gregg who blew a save on Friday night. Will be interesting to see who gets the next save opportunity.

Chase Utley-Utley had two hits and a SB vs. the Rockies on Saturday night. The SB has to make owners feel more confident in Utley's recovery from offseason hip surgery.

CC Sabathia-Sabathia threw 7 2/3 scoreless innings vs. the Royals on Saturday night giving up only 6 hits while striking out 6. Maybe he will have a better April this year than he did in 2008.

Emilio Bonafacio-Bonafacio had 3 more hits on Saturday. Do you sell high on him? Would be curious as to what he would fetch as I drafted him late in one of my leagues.

Jason Motte- Manager Tony Larussa used Motte in the 6th inning of yesterday's game vs. the Astros to give him some work in a non-pressure situation. Motte fanned two in one inning of work. Another closer battle to keep your eye on in April.
