I've got Alex Cobb and James Shields going today. Overall it was a decent first week of pitching for me.

Justin Upton showed signs of life yesterday! Bryce Harper is getting the day off today but I hope to see some extra base hits and multi-hit games from him in the near future!

I'm starting to take Melky Cabrera seriously. That's a jack in 3 straight games now and he's ~two years removed from being a near elite fantasy commodity.

Me too. He's always a fave of mine I've hopped on him early in leagues I have some banged up OFs, he looks locked in at the plate too, besides his hits he's hit into a lot of line drive outs.

Ryan Zimm can't even get through Week 1 without requiring an MRI. What a headache this guy is to own. :-C

Chris Colabello is looking shallow mixed league worthy at the moment.

This is a guy who slashed .352/.427/.629 with 24 HRs in only 89 games at Triple A a year ago.

With Middlebrooks going to the DL, I found room for him today. I'll see how long he can keep hitting.

Eovaldi twirling another gem. Shouldn't stay a sleeper for too much longer.

He really is something special. Start after start he is just totally dominating. More so than anyone else pitching in the majors Kershaw, Hernandez, Darvish, Wainwright included. And still only 21 8-o
