Anthony Rizzo: About a month ago I recommended acquiring adding Rizzo despite his terrible .163, and look at him now. Everything I touch turns to gold; I hope I dont’ have ‘schmelting’ accident (Austin Powers in Goldmember reference).
Alberto Callaspo: In just one game Callaspo produced more than Josh Hamilton has this entire season. Going 2-3 with a home run, and five RBI Callaspo led the Angels in a comeback victory. Callaspo isn’t a bad play in fantasy leagues, but he isn’t going to wow anyone. Also, the Angels did just claim Chris Nelson off waivers who in 2012 was a decent fantasy asset at the hot corner. For now Nelson shouldn’t sneak into to Callaspo’s playing time.
Yonder Alonso: For some reason Alonso seems like a version of a post 33 year-old Todd Helton to me, but he won’t hit for as high an average. Alonso hit a home run yesterday adding to his total of five; only four away from last years total of nine.
Adam Jones: Jones seems to have been overshadowed by Chris Davis and Manny Machado of late, but Jones is still on par with his top 30 ranking. Jones is going to hit for a high average, and produce a lot of runs the rest of the way.
Jean Segura: 3-4 with two RBI. Just thinking about him gets me weak in the knees. Thank god the Angels trade him because the Sciosciapath would have kept him in the minors till he was at least 30.
Evan Gattis: Hit a pinch-hit home run yesterday. I wonder how he would do if he wore batting gloves.
Matt Joyce: Filled the stat sheet with a homer, and five RBI. Surprisingly enough Joyce has seven homers this season.
Mitch Moreland: Someone needs to stop Moreland before he gets out of had; five homeruns in his last ten games. Owners should not go out of their way to get Moreland unless he is somehow unowned at this point, but he should eclipse 20 homers for the first time this season.
David Phelps: Eight strikeouts yesterday in best performance of the season. Over the past year or two Phelps has been a solid receiver along with a few successful spot starts. Phelps is worth a shot.
Tom Koehler: I have pimping Koehler as a Bigfoot sighting for years; actually I just found out who he was. He did have 1.06 in the minors, but he is on the Marlins so regardless of his ERA he won’t get any wins.
