Domonic Brown clubbed his 17th home run this season last night, giving him 9 in the last 10 games. On April 27th, Justin Upton had 12 home runs. Domonic Brown had 3. Now Brown has 17 and Upton just 14. If you guys don't believe in selling high and buying low, don't go to Buy Low/Sell High Thread http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=458914
, where you may have seen some guys telling you to sell high on Upton, and now to do the same on Brown.
In the foul ball Olympics, two superstar rookies take the mound in St. Louis, where Michael Wacha hosts Tyler Skaggs, in a matchup that cannot possibly live up to the hype. Being in St. Louis, I know I will crack a few Budweiser products and enjoy this one at home. Naturally, I will have my clipboard on my lap, and I'll be tallying all the foul balls each pitcher produces. Surely this will be a determining factor to who wins the game, with the lowest foul ball count winning.
Around the league there are some good pitching matchups tonight, most notably in Minnesota, where two great teams and pitchers square off when Luis Mendoza pitches for the Royals against Samuel Deduno for the Twins. For those of you living outside the U.S., we refer to the previous sentence as sarcasm, where the writer makes it seem like he means one thing, but he actually means the exact opposite. Sorry, but I made record the Twins/Royals game and use it in the future when I really just want to get to sleep.

Lastly, Yasiel Puig made his MLB debut last night, and he did not disappoint. He went 2/4 at the plate, taking third from first on a single, and he gunned out Chris Denorfia to end the game. For those shallow leagues where he is available, pick him up. For those of you that held him waiting for this, good luck, he looks like a winner.
