postheadericon MIKE NAPOLI, HES BACK!!!!!!!!!!

Mike Napoli – 3 for 6 with 2 home runs and 5 RBI on Monday.  The Rangers are 11-4 when Mike Napoli starts behind the plate and 9-0 when he hits a home run.  Now let’s hope that Ron Washington stops being a moron and starts giving Napoli everyday start.
Justin Upton – 5 for 5 with a home run, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored and a stolen base.  Yup, Upton doing it all this year and it’s about time!
Jose Bautista – 2 for 3 with 2 RBI on Monday evening.  Baustista has had multiple RBI games in 10 of the 46 games he has played in.  Bautista still shocks me!
Jay Bruce – 3 for 4 with a home run and 3 RBI in a win over the Brewers.  Bruce has just been stellar in the month of May posting a line of .346, 12 home runs and 32 RBI.
Bartolo Colon – Threw his first complete game shut out since 2006.  I think were going to be seeing a lot more baseball players experimenting with the shoulder surgery Colon had in the offseason.
Brandon Webb – 3.1 IP 5 ER, 8 hits in his first rehab start with AA.  Webb is not mixed league material, but if you are in an AL only league, he might be worth a look.  Its not know yet if he will be a starter or a reliever.
Hanley Ramirez – Says his back pain is “the worst he has ever felt in his life”.  Don’t be surprised if Hanley ends up on the DL.
Joakim Soria – The Royals have removed Soria from his closer duties.  I believe this is just temporary while he works this out, don’t drop him just yet.
Aaron Crow – Crow becomes a must pick up while he has the closer duties.  If your short on closers, go pick him up, but know that this is probably just a short term thing.
Chris Narveson – Drop this bum unless you’re in NL only leagues.  Every time I pick this guy up for a spot start I get screwed.
Jake Arrieta – Expected t make  his next start after getting hit in the leg by a comebacker.  I am one of the few who still like Arrieta, and still feel he will get better as the season goes along.  Monitor his situation closely.

This is a guy that could easily hit 40 HRs, if he would get the 550 ABs he deserves. It is mind boggling that teams have disprespected and mismanaged his potential over the last few years. He was my sleeper in both of my auction drafts, but unfortunately I got stuck running catchers up in both. I hope Texas is as boneheaded as Anaheim so his value stays some what down for next years draft.
