Holy offensive explosion! No, I’m not talking about the effect of eating too much Indian food on my delicate constitution; I’m talking about the big bats that were being swung recently. There were 37 home runs hit Wednesday and while that doesn’t even come close to the record (62 set in 2002), it’s still a whole lot of power and big offensive category boosts for a number of fantasy owners. If you had the right make-up of guys, you were probably in hog heaven as the hits just kept coming all night. That’s not to say that there weren’t some real nice pitching performances, but the hitters took stage, front and center, and shined ridiculously bright.
One of the things you’ll hear from virtually every fantasy pundit is that a successful draft is based on how much value you get out of each one of your picks. The first few rounds are obviously dedicated to the studs, the players on whom your foundation is built. You’re picking from the best of the best and each selection, unless you make a total bonehead move or the player suffers a debilitating injury, should produce high end value for you.
