BEAST DOME NATION.

It’s now or never time.  Ask me your fantasy baseball questions as we head towards the end stretch of the season!

 

Ryan Braun: Got a day off (steroid injection) Wednesday, and hit 2 HRs in his return Thursday.  Ready to put up MVP numbers after the cold start to the week.  I had him Aramis and Hart both days in the DSBC, they do not get more than 3 hits between them all series.  Yesterday they combine for 4 HRs.

Chipper Jones: Hit 2 HRs on his bobble head night.  Pretty epic for a 40 Year Old who is still relevant in fantasy leagues.

Dan Haren: Was terrible against the Rays.  Although they are healthy, Haren is more of a risky pitcher than a safe thing moving forward.

Michael Cuddyer: Launched a HR in his first game back.  Good to play at Coors.

Giancarlo Stanton: Got settled in at Coors hitting a HR in the first game of the series.  0/4 when I used him in the DSBC.

Dan Straily Show: Pitches a shutout which shows he is worth every piece of the hype.  Grant Balfour recorded the save saying good bye to Ryan Cook.

Kris Medlen: My #1 Pitcher of yesterday throws a CG shutout.  So far my #1 Pitcher since the DSBC has 18 INN and 0 ERs, King Felix and now Medlen.

Pedro Alvarez: Hit a HR, which means a whole bakers bunch is coming.

G.I. Jones: Is turning into a low key MONSTER.

Jason Heyward: Reaches 20 HRs to go along with his 16 SBs.  Breakout season for the star projected in my sleeper article to start the year.

Matt Harvey: Looks like a solid keeper after racking up a very nice road start in Cincy.  Future ace of that staff no doubt.

B.J. Upton: Ready for a HUGE weekend.

Jim Henderson: Racks up the save for the Brewers, still closer for now.

Jason Motte: Gives up back-to-back jacks, closer job is still his.

 

 

Ask me any fantasy questions about players.
