postheadericon A BAD FIRST IMPRESSION!

Carlos Beltran – 0 for 4 in his debut with the Giants.  I guess Beltran didn’t get the memo of making a good first impression for the new team you play for.

Desmond Jennings – 3 for 4 with a home run stolen base and 4 RBI.  The home run was his first in his MLB career.  In 6 games played, Jennings is making a hell of an impact hitting .500 with a homer and 4 stolen bases.

Rich Harden – 6 IP, 2 ER, 3 H while striking out 7.  Harden departed after 6 and saw his bullpen blow a 3 run lead.  The Yankees and Red Sox have been scouting Harden, and for those who own him, let’s hope this happens.

Mark Trumbo – 3 for 5 with a home run and 5 RBI as he missed the cycle by a single.  Trumbo is quietly putting up a solid season, as he hits .256 with 19 HR and 53 RBI.

Tyler Colvin – Recalled from AAA when Fukudome was traded and then struck out in his pinch hit appearance.  Colvin, while struggling for most of the season is still someone we need to keep an eye on.  He could become a cheap source of power.

Ryan Zimmerman – 4 for 5 with a double and a run scored.  Such a blah stat line!

JJ Hardy – 3 for 5 with 2 HR and is now 2nd in the league in home runs for a short stop.  Tulowitzki is the current leader but Hardy is breathing down his neck.  You hear that Tulo? A free agent pickup is breathing down your neck!  In case you were wondering, Hardy now has 18 Homers.
