Travis Snider – 2 for 4 with a home run and 5 RBIs as he continues to torch since he was recalled.  Snider is now hitting .357 in July with 2 home runs and 17 RBI.

Hunter Pence – The Astros are now showing a willingness to trade Hunter.  Everyone that owns Pence says yes, please!

Jason Bay – Removed from Wednesday game with a tight right hamstring.  Does anyone even own this guy anymore?  I sure hope not!

Clayton Kershaw – 8 IP, 3 H, 1 BB, 12 K’s while picking up his 11th win of the year.  Kershaw was just masterful on the day, and my favorite for CY Young appears to be back on track!

JJ Putz – Expected to be activated from the DL next Tuesday.  I wouldn’t be so sure that he will reclaim his closers role, David Hernandez has done it better than he has thus far.

Wilson Betemit – Traded to the Tigers and will be the everyday starting 3rd basemen with Brandon Inge being designated for assignment.  If you are really weak at 3B, Betemit would be a decent add.

Scott Baker – Will come off the DL on Saturday after having a successful bullpen session.  Yup, you guessed it, start him immediately!

John Danks – 7 IP, 5 H, 6 K, while picking up yet another no decision.  You didn’t actually think Danks was this bad did you?  He’s not, his team is just not very good.

Stephen Drew – Fractured his right ankle and is out for the season.  He’s probably hurt because I put him in my top 100.  I’m sorry Stephen!

Adam Dunn – Now has knee issues and is receiving treatments.  Here’s my honest recommendation…. DROP HIM IN ALL LEAGUES.

Antonio Bastardo – Charlie Manual said that Bastardo could keep his closers role indefinitely.  Well Charlie that makes sense since he is your best reliever!
