That's too bad your first opponent was lame. That takes some fun out of it.
Here are some things on my mind:
1. I normally accept all the risk of running Brian Wilson out there every day, but today I blame Grey for the blown save. You have to use those powers more responsibly!
2. In the past 7 days - Braun (5 for 26, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 RBI) and Hart (4 for 27, 0 R, 0 HR and 1 RBI). I'll take the lack of performance this week if it means that I get their usual production back sometime during the next two weeks. Am very worried though.
Hart was good last September so maybe he'll get hot, but I'd be most worried about him. The Brewers need to win and that may come at Hart's expense.
3. Also in the past 7 days - Soto (4 for 17, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 RBI). Unlike Braun or Hart, there's actually a chance that I'll drop Soto during my finals matchup if things are not looking good. How much more production can I get from Soto anyway, compared to Sandoval, Teagarden or Olivo, all of whom are available? Over a two week span, probably not enough to justify holding onto him when the Cubs aren't playing or when Soto isn't active. If there is a good pitching matchup and I don't need offensive contribution, the catcher position is not a bad one to leave empty in order to stream an extra pitcher.
I'd seriously consider Sandoval and Teagarden.
4. Brandon Wood has continued to fly under the radar a bit due to his very suppressed batting average, but I fully intend to drop Wheeler to use him at my now empty MI spot at the beginning of next week. In the past 7 days, he has had 4 Rs, 3 HRs, 5 RBIs and 1 steal. Tonight, he had another multihit game, including a double. There could be a power surge coming.
He's looked really good and I'll be pumping Wood again in tonight's post.
