Fantasy Baseball: NL Runs Scored Leaders for Last Two Months

I was watching another gem thrown by Clayton Kershaw go to waste last night when Dodgers announcer Vin Scully made a comparison to Sandy Koufax. He said he could tell if Koufax was going to pitch a no-hitter by the way he pitched to the first batter. He went on to say with Kershaw it is close but not yet. Interesting.

Here are the NL runs scored leaders for June and July for those of you in 5x5 leagues:

Fielder, Prince 1B MIL 197 40 66 13 43 34 1 2 0.335 0.4346
Tulowitzki, Troy SS COL 177 37 53 14 35 27 10 5 0.2994 0.3876

Lee, Derrek 1B CHC 197 35 62 15 47 25 0 0 0.3147 0.3938
Schumaker, Skip CF STL 194 35 56 0 9 23 1 1 0.2887 0.3641
Werth, Jayson RF PHI 192 35 53 14 40 43 4 1 0.276 0.4066
Stewart, Ian 3B COL 171 35 42 10 28 20 5 1 0.2456 0.3333
Drew, Stephen SS ARI 206 34 63 5 25 19 3 0 0.3058 0.3673
Hawpe, Brad RF COL 195 34 56 8 24 28 1 2 0.2872 0.3805
Howard, Ryan 1B PHI 198 34 53 12 39 30 2 0 0.2677 0.3648
McLouth, Nate CF ATL 202 34 53 7 22 23 8 1 0.2624 0.3391
McCutchen, Andrew OF PIT 210 33 59 3 25 17 9 0 0.281 0.3391
Jones, Chipper 3B ATL 178 32 49 9 32 37 1 0 0.2753 0.3927
Zimmerman, Ryan 3B WAS 199 32 49 9 32 20 0 0 0.2462 0.3125
Bonifacio, Emilio 2B FLA 198 32 48 0 11 15 10 3 0.2424 0.2963
Rollins, Jimmy SS PHI 216 32 52 7 28 18 12 4 0.2407 0.2996
Upton, Justin RF ARI 199 31 54 10 34 22 9 2 0.2714 0.3453
Ramirez, Hanley SS FLA 188 30 69 8 47 17 8 3 0.367 0.419

What surprises me is that Marlins infielder Emilio Bonafacio has more runs scored than teammate Hanley Ramirez even amid talk he will be replaced at 3b with the trade for Nick Johnson. Actually, Bonafacio had more steals than Ramirez as well.

A guy who I think should be the first third baseman taken in next year's NL-only league drafts, Ryan Zimmerman, had a good two months as well. His full year stats are much better than his June-July stats, and a case can be made to take him before the Met's David Wright, but its close.

One other note of interest is how well Pirates CFer Andrew McCutchen has performed since his call-up after the NAte McLouth trade to the Braves. From the table, you can see he has more RBIs, a better average and more SBs than McLouth over the last two months.
