Former Kings G Isaiah Thomas on Kings C DeMarcus Cousins: "I think if he ran the floor a little more, he would make the game a lot easier for him."
A parting shot or something meant as a compliment? You be the judge. Hard to say what kind of effect this statement has because it comes down to what Cousins thinks and whether or not it's even a true statement. If it is true and Cousins disagrees, then it's just a war of words. If it's true and he takes it as constructive criticism, then it helps. If it's not true and Cousins dismisses the statement then we're right back here at square one. And if it's not true and Cousins still listens to him, then it makes him a worse player. Thanks for your help Isaiah. Much appreciated.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.
