Another day, another version of Rounding The Bases here at Fighting Chance Fantasy. It is a full schedule on Wednesday, and we will discuss a player close to coming off the DL as well as another hoping to avoid going back on. There are notes on a few speedsters and plenty of talk of some of the pitchers who took the mound, including one who really needed to have the good start that he did. You can count on the sun setting in the West, and the best fantasy information right here at Fighting Chance Fantasy.
Jose Reyes is starting to heat up and hopefully for those who took the chance on him that this is the start of something good. Reyes had three hits on Tuesday including a triple, and that gives him four multi-hit games in his last five starts, and he also stole two bases today giving him 11 on the year. The other good news is that Reyes is way too talented to be hitting just .232 and you know that better days are ahead for him.
Redemption is the theme tonight in a major league schedule that has just four games. Most of the players talked about tonight are players who have something to prove to fantasy owners. Some of the stories have happy endings, while others just have endings (yes, that is a Love Connection theme for you kids of the 80s). There are a couple of other guys tonight, but is a very abbreviated article tonight as Week 9 starts.
Forget what I said last night about the Cardinals' David Freese at least being in the discussion for NL Rookie of the Year. Jason Heyward was basically given the award in Spring Training and I have to say that he is even surpassing expectations so far in 2010. I figured he would be good for about a .280 average with 20 homers and 80 RBI. Well, it isn't even the end of May and he is nearly halfway to that home run total as he crushed his ninth tonight, and he isn't far off halfway to that RBI total as he drove in runs number 31, 32, and 33 on Friday. It is inevitable that he will slow down at some point here, but he is still worth his weight in gold in any kind of league and should be treated that way.
Rounding The Bases on Thursday focuses on mainly young players, both hitting and pitching. While most will suffer from inconsistency there are a couple of players here noted for how well they are doing. There is also a major league catcher that you absolutely have to trade away now! All this and so much more in Thursday's Rounding The Bases.
There is no case of the Mondays here at Fighting Chance Fantasy as we bring you yet another edition of Rounding The Bases. Tonight's news starts on the news of one Phillies middle infielder coming back into the lineup, while another one misses the game tonight. A couple of young pitchers took it on the chin, and a couple more were dazzling. Is Corey Hart back on track? You will hear about it all in Rounding The Bases.
The end of the sixth week of the fantasy season has come and past now and as usual there is plenty of news to go over. There are some veterans who are doing better than expected, some doing worse than expected, and some who are just coming back from injury. There is some news on some starting pitchers reaggravating a past injury and some that are flashing some brilliance. It is as regular as the sun setting in the west, so enjoy Rounding The Bases for your Sunday night.
Justin Upton seems like he is finally heating up as he had his second straight three hit night on Saturday including his sixth home run of the season. J-Up has endless potential as he has the chance to be a 30/30 or even a 40/40 guy at some point in his career. He has really gotten off to a slow start and is the absolutely PERFECT buy low guy after seven weeks to the season. If you own him you want to stay patient with him and if you don't this is a guy that you want to target in a trade as he absolutely will turn it around and when he gets hot he gets really, really hot. Someday soon Upton will be one of the top ten players in all of the major leagues.
The news of the night revolves around two Pirates players. This may mark the first time in the history of my nightly article that more than one player for a Pittsburgh franchise is mentioned, or at least the first time that the news was good about both. Other than that a lot of the talk tonight revolves around catchers and starting pitchers as we invite you to enjoy the Friday edition of Rounding The Bases.
There is a lot of focus on young players tonight in Rounding The Bases, as from Seattle to San Diego to Colorado we focus on some of the new kids on the block in major league baseball. More and more these players are having a fantasy impact earlier in their careers and shouldn't be ignored. All of that and Hunter Pence is red hot tonight in another edition of Rounding The Bases.
