Fantasy Baseball: Thursday's Top Performers

To this point, Jason Kubel has been a bit disappointing, as he is not really hitting for power or average. Well, hopefully yesterday was the start of the turnaround, as he hit 2 homers, drove in 5 runs and had 3 hits in 4 at bats. I think that this really could be the start of some good hitting for him, and he'll hopefully start bringing the value that had him drafted so highly.

Johnny Cueto also looked really good again last night, going 6 shutout innings and striking out 9 batters while only allowing 5 base runners. The Reds really seem like they are for real, and could be extremely dangerous if they start getting solid performances out of Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo on a consistent basis.

Onto Thursday's Top Performers....
