Soxman’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly

The ascension continues as the Southside Soxmen are having a season similar to my favorite team. As we climb to second place with a 27-21 record.  My hitting continues to be helped by Mr. MVP Carlos Quentin, Joey Votto, and the sizzling Ryan Braun.  It is being hurt by Paul Konerko and Melky Cabrera.

Brian McCann
He’s been sizzling over the last two weeks, batting .419 with two dingers and 14 RBI. He’s one of the best offensive catchers is baseball.
Justin Morneau
.415 clip with 2 bombs and 12 RBI in the last two weeks.  Enough said.
Carlos Quentin
Like most fantasy owners, Ozzie Guillen admitted to not even knowing who he was going into the season.  Now he’s the MVP of many leagues hitting .311, 5 HR, 14 RBI, 1 SB, and an incredible 1.085 OPS the last 14 days.
Ryan Braun
He’s hitting .288 with 6 HR and 12 RBI and a1.048 OPS over the last 14 days.
Joey Votto
He’s only hitting .244 the last 14 days, but he has 3 bombs and has been delivering in the clutch.
Kurt Suzuki
After a hot start, he has struggled over the last 21 days, hitting only .197, 1 HR, 3 RBI.
Melvin Mora
Despite the impressive start by the Orioles, Mora appears to be lost.  He is hitting .172 with 0 HR and 3 RBI over the last 14 days.
Paul Konerko
Now we know Paulie has a hand injury which should compound his usual slow start. 
.162, 0 HR, 1 RBI over the last 14 days.  Can someone please tell me why I’m keeping him in my line-up?


Under the Radar
Jerry Hairston
Remember him?  Hairston qualifies at shortstop in most leagues and has been getting full-time play over the last 14 days hitting .316 with 6 steals!  Overall he’s hitting .306, 1 HR, 7 RBI and 7 SB.
Taking the Mound
Jose Contreras
Over the last 21 days, few have been hotter.  Jose is 3-0, with a 1.61 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, and 21 Ks in 28 IP.  He was a free agent in my league until this past Tuesday!
Ryan Dempster
A HUGE surprise for the Cubs this year, Dempster had a rough start last week but still has a remarkable 2.05 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 31 Ks in 26 IP over the last 21 days.

DL Difference Makers
Joe Borowski
Activated from the DL and immediately picked up a save on Saturday.  He is the Indians closer and worth the gamble.  Remember, he’s one year removed from a 45-save season.
Eric Gagne
 “Gag me” continues his horrid season now on the DL with a shoulder injury.  At least he can’t hurt your ERA any more while he’s there.  Solomon Torres is the closer-elect in Milwaukee, but keep an eye on Julian Tavarez, who the Brewers are expected to sign this week.
