Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Friday.
Looks like someone is residing in Chateau Bow Wow, as this marks the third time in the last four games that Brown has opened up on the bench. A slash line of .218/.270/.321 certainly isn't going to ingratiate you to your manager, but what's interesting to see is that it's not like Brown is up there hacking away and striking out a ton. His strikeout rate is actually slightly lower than it was last year. He's had some bad luck with a .245 BABIP, but maybe what people should start to understand is that the guy just isn't that good. He had one crazy month last year, but in truth, he hasn't done anything since. There's only so much rope you can give a guy before he hangs himself, and it looks like Brown's spot on the bench is right next to the gallows.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a home run, one RBI, two walks and two runs scored against the Reds on Saturday
Over the past seven days, Lind is 8-for-26 with two home runs and 11 RBI. He is definitely having a surprise season over at first base and not saying that he was not capable of this type of season but we didn't necessarily see this coming. He is hitting .295 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI so far this season. That is great production out of guy that is owned in just about 50% of leagues. If he is available in your league scoop him up while you can, as he has shown through 78 games this year he is going to have a great season. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Todd Frazier went 4-for-5 with two doubles against the Brewers on Saturday
Is it time that we include Todd Frazier in the conversation for one of the best hitters in the league? Because this guy can just flat out hit. He went 4-for-5 Saturday against the Brewers bringing his average up to .289 for the season. Not to mention his 25 home run and 54 RBI. Frazier continues to excel and is in the conversation for best third basemen in the league. If you have Frazier on your squad you are going to want to hold onto this guy for a long time.
