postheadericon HIS FIRST BIG FLY!

Joe Mauer – 2 for 4 with a home run, 2 RBI and 3 runs scored.  The home run was Mauers first of the year.  Mauer is slowly rounding into “Mauer” form.

Justin Upton – 2 for 4 with 2 home runs, 2 RBI and 2 runs scored.  Upton now has 5 home runs in the last three days.  Upton is smoking hot right now.

Carlos Beltran – Traded to the Giants and have been getting some questions on his value.  If I had to tell if his value would change, I would say its no more or less than it was Monday.

Rickie Weeks – Hits the DL after rolling his ankle on 1st base.  He was sent for X-rays and found no breaks for fractures.  The Brewers do believe he suffered ligament damage and was sent for an MRI.

Ricky Romero – 8.1 IP, 4 H, 9 K while picking up his 8th win of the season.  Romero has been a tough luck loser this whole season but still has fantastic stats.  Romero is now sporting a 3.08 ERA.

Roy Oswalt – Had a rehab start on Wednesday and allowed one run.  Oswalt said he will need one more rehab start before rejoining the Phils.

Colby Rasmus – Traded to the Blue Jays for a pile of crap.  Rasmus has struggled most of the season, but a change of scenery should be good for him.  Rasmus value rises due to the hitters park and better lineup he is in. 

Jose Bautista – returned to the lineup Wednesday and went 1 for 4 with an RBI.  Bautista now has 19 RBI this month.

Edwin Jackson – traded from the White Sox to the Jays then shipped off to the Cards.  Jackson going to the Cards could mean great news for Jackson owners.  The Cardinals seem to always take mediocre pitchers and make them great.  If hes on the FA wire, I’d take a shot on him.

Jon Jay – The biggest beneficiary of the Rasmus trade is Jay, do I trust Jay? No, but you probably have worse guys currently on your squad.  If you need a 5th OF, Jay is your man.

Alex Rios – Sent to the bench in favor of De Aza, I think its safe to say you can now drop Rios.  Also, De Aza and his career .242 batting average are not own able either.
