Raise your hand if Cody Allen is carrying your team in wins. Man am I glad I called THAT guy. ;-D ;-D

Enjoy it while it lasts. Emilio has had some nice stretches before, but never put it together over the course of a season (2011 was a good year, but if you're only going to drive in 35 and hit as many HR as you have fingers on one hand, you've gotta score 100+ Runs). Maybe Chicago is a good spot for him. Regular 5x5 he's a lot more rosterable than anywhere that counts OPS, or anything like that.

Grandy Man off the schnide! RBI Double. I'm hearing reports that there are literally DOZENS of people at Citi Field to see it live and in person!

Dickerson making a case for more playing time. On base twice, stole a base, scored twice. They can't keep 17 outfielders on the roster forever, so whoever sticks will be getting decent PAs and probably bat leadoff.

I just wish the Rockies sort it out and pick a CF. The 3 man platoon doesn't help me at all in my NL weekly league.

Zack Wheeler: 6 strikeouts in 3 IP so far, and it seems like the strike zone is really small the way the ump is calling it.

I'm watching that one and just kinda shaking my head at Bryce Harper at bats. he is seeing a lot of straight pitches in the strike zone that he is either fouling off or swinging through. I'm hoping that blow to the head in the first game isn't lingering...
