Twi-Night Doubleheader - Week 8

Fantasy Players of the Week
  • AL Hitter: Robinson Cano, 2B, Yankees (.483, 8 R, 1 HR, 12 RBI) - It was argued once before that Cano should have been the player of the week, but this time there's no debate. Cano has been thriving, and his kind of production at second base is a particular treat.
  • NL Hitter: Jose Reyes, SS, Mets (.483, 8 R, 1 HR, 9 RBI 3 SB) - Nine RBI out of Reyes is wholly unexpected and delightful. The rest of it is more along the lines of what you expect out of Reyes, and it's all positive.
  • AL Pitcher: A.J. Burnett, SP, Yankees (2-0, 13 Ks, 0.69/0.77) - Burnett is very much a feast or famine pitcher, but this week, it's been a buffet of good innings.
  • NL Pitcher: Ubaldo Jimenez, SP, Rockies (2-0, 12 Ks, 0.00/0.76) - How crazy is it that Roy Halladay throws a perfect game and Jimenez is the best pick for pitcher of the week? Jimenez and Vladimir Guerrero have been the stories of the year for fantasy owners.
A Look Back

Remember all those guys I've recommended you pick up over this season? It's fun to see how it's all panned out, so that's what we'll do. Color codings for the wolf: green was good, red was bad, and if I leave it black, it's a push.

Week 1
  • J.J. Hardy, SS, Twins: .230, 13 R, 3 HR, 13 RBI
  • Kelly Johnson, 2B, Diamondbacks: .275, 35 R, 12 HR, 25 RBI, 5 SB
  • Kevin Gregg, RP, Blue Jays: 0-1, 14 SVs, 27 Ks, 3.09/1.33
  • Franklin Morales, RP, Rockies: 0-3, 3 SVs, 8 Ks, 4.09/1.64
Week 2
  • Alberto Callaspo, 2B/3B, Royals: .296, 25 R, 7 HR, 31 RBI, 3 SB
  • Ivan Rodriguez, C, Nationals: .325, 13 R, 1 HR, 16 RBI, 2 SB
  • Fernando Rodney, RP, Angels: 4-0, 5 SVs, 15 Ks, 3.05/1.45
  • Matt Lindstrom, RP, Astros: 1-1, 11 SVs, 18 Ks, 2.05/1.41
Week 3
  • Brett Gardner, OF, Yankees: .299, 36 R, 2 HR, 16 RBI, 18 SB
  • Scott Rolen, 3B, Reds: .280, 29 R, 11 HR, 32 RBI
  • Joel Zumaya, RP, Tigers: 2-0, 1 SV, 31 Ks, 1.84/1.02
  • Livan Hernandez, SP, Nationals: 4-3, 27 Ks, 2.15/1.10
Week 4
  • Kosuke Fukudome, OF, Cubs: .294, 21 R, 6 HR, 23 RBI, 3 SB
  • Doug Fister, SP, Mariners: 3-3, 32 Ks, 2.45/0.96
  • Jaime Garcia, SP, Cardinals: 5-2, 51 Ks, 1.32/1.19
If any of those guys in green are still available in your league (which I know is true for at least a couple of you), you should strongly consider acquiring them. Yes, even Kelly Johnson.

This was always going to be the hardest of my band lists, because I like so many of DMB's songs, and have liked them so differently over...
