Jorge de la Rosa left the third inning because of elbow soreness. I thought it sounded ominous at the time, but I also thought it might’ve been the older, Hispanic lady riding her bicycle passed my window chanting, “Flores para los muertos.” It turned out it was a combination of both. Jorge’s gonna be sleeping with the pisces for a while as he heads off to get Tommy John surgery. Elsewhere, Rubby de la Rosa was promoted by the Dodgers. Up and down day for the de la Rosas, apparently. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:
Carlos Gonzalez – Had a big day in the doubleheader at Coors. Multiple home runs, RBIs and runs. A ménage à trois of fantasy goodness. Please, blog, may I have some more?
I suggest you grab a 3rd baseman before leaving the top 100, but that’s not always possible. So, if you miss out on one, this list is guys that can be had later in your drafts. Look at this as a supplement to the top 20 3rd basemen of 2009 fantasy baseball. Where applicable, click on the players name to read more about them or to see their 2009 projections. Anyway, here’s some 3rd basemen to target for 2009 fantasy baseball:
Ryan Zimmerman - “For today’s game of Jew or Not a Jew… Ryan Zimmerman.”
Pablo Sandoval – He’s not fat, he’s jolly. I still prefer him more as a catcher, but in deep leagues I could see the case made for Sandoval as a 3rd baseman, especially with the loss of A-Rod. Please, blog, may I have some more?
