As of May 13th, Eric Hosmer has started his early MLB career slashing .280/.387/.600 in 25 at-bats with 2 home runs, 5 RBI and a 7:5 K:BB ratio. Granted, it’s a small sample size but his start reminds me of two recent rookies who were similarly hyped: Jay Bruce and Ryan Braun.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Carlos Beltran won’t play in day games following night games. He won’t play in too many games in a row. He won’t play in games where the other team’s starting pitcher’s last name ends in an N. Here’s me playing the world’s smallest violin for everyone at Metco. Since Beltran’s return, 1 homer and zero steals. So he’s not running and he’s hitting for an empty average with little power. There’s no crying in baseball and there’s no sentimentality in fantasy baseball. If you’re holding onto your 2nd round pick because you held him this long already, well, you’ve held him too long. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:
Anibal Sanchez – 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks. If Oliver Perez is the crazy girlfriend that you have hot passionate sex with but is afraid may stab you in the jugular in the middle of the night, then Anibal is her sister. (If you followed that, give yourself a gold star.)
Dan Uggla – Hit his 30th homer yesterday as the Marlins rubbed their hands together thinking about who they were going to get for Uggla this offseason.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What up, Razzball Nation!
I’ve been away for a couple weeks touring around Italy. I saw the town where the Baldellis have been contracting mitochondrial diseases for centuries, watched as Pete Incaviglia’s cousin used a vicious uppercut to generate topspin for a winning bocce roll, and took part in a old-fashioned Tommy Lasorda pasta crawl (I did NOT need that last plate of penne arrabiata…)
While away, my fantasy teams were left to fare on their own.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Fantasy Baseball Generals take a look at the ADPs of some 3rd basemen they feel are being over- and undervalued. I agree with their assessments of everyone, except Hank Blalock who they say is being undervalued. I think he’s simply being valued.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Big news in New York this week. No, not the Giants. Morgan Ensberg signed with the Yankees. Let me ask you something, if you sign a player in the biggest media market and it makes no noise, are you still signing a player?Please, blog, may I have some more?
People over at the Brew Crew Ball quote Fox Sports’ on Ryan Braun moving to the outfield with the addition of Mike Cameron. The Brewers this offseason said to George Mitchell, “Here’s spit in your eye.” Gagne, Cameron, Mota… Maybe they can coax Canseco out of retirement?Please, blog, may I have some more?
