Players named to the Vegas Summer League First-Team: Doug McDermott & Tony Snell (Chi); Otto Porter & Glen Rice Jr (Was); Donatas Motiejunas (Hou).
Read this somewhere and not sure if it is humorous or a question of deep morality, but quick compare McDermott to a non-white player. While you ponder that I will point out that he was the only member of the 2014 draft class to be selected to the first-team and one of just four to make either the first or second All-Vegas Summer League team. Dougie McBuckets finished his five games averaging 18 points on 44.2% shooting from the field and an even better percentage from long-distance at 44.4% while missing just one of his 23 free throws to go with a per game average of four boards and almost three assists numbers that would make Kyle Korver proud. Oh wait, he's white, so how about Sam Perkins?ANALYST: Michael Pichan
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.
