This guy is finally starting to payoff. Back to back days of 2 HR games!! Awesome. Glad I kept him. ;-D Seems like last year all over again.

I'm starting to feel like a genius since I grabbed Uggla off waivers about a month ago and traded for Braun a few weeks ago. ;-D

Nice to see...as I have moved him to the OF while E. Encarnacion is hot and my OF has struggled along (Griffey was my 3rd OF).

Hopefully this hot streak keeps up for a bit...obviously the HRs are great but it sure would be nice to see him hit at least one of them with runners on. He's sucking with RISP lately. 0 for 6 since May 3rd. No one's really getting on base for him.

Agreed :D

I was getting slightly frustrated by Uggla's slump and I managed to pick up Brian Roberts from WW (some douche dropped him).



Now Roberts is stuck down in the bench :-B

He just signed a 8yr 45mil. deal late Wednesday. He did say that the contract negotiations did distract him a bit. When the deal looked as if it was going to be done a week and a half or so he started heating up. I see him play everyday as I am a Brewer fan. Two things have turned it around for him this year.
1. He has layed off the low outside pitch and now they have to come in on him.
2. The contract situation.
He is with out a doubt one of the best hitters in the league. There is no reason to not expect .300+ 35+ 100+ this year.
