Just gotta love Dee Gordon. I was a little nervous after the 1/11 double header, but since, he's 6/8 with 3 SBs. One of the better stories of the young season so far.

Edit, make it 7/9. Just out of control right now.

On another note, Chris Owings has been hitting more lately, I think he's a guy who could be a valuable commodity going forward as he earns his way up the lineup.

Dee Gordon couldn't be working out better. I talked him up a little too much in my friends leagues and this guy was determined to outbid me for him no matter what in the two leagues we play in, and on top of not hearing the end of it I'm playing against him in h2h this week %-6

Luckily I got him everywhere else but the bittersweet taste is heavy.

Guys. I have a confession to make. I dropped Charlie Blackmon on March 24th in a 5 OF NL-only league.

There. I just had to get that out of my system.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

There are moves we make that we never forget, like the year I dropped Adrian Beltre on April 1 in his first contract season, or last year when I traded Harvey and Chris Davis for Stanton. I hope whoever you picked up for him is doing something. :-°

Hindsight is 20/20. That was a fair deal going into last year that just didn't work out.

Thoughts on the close of week 4...

Will the real Corey Kluber please stand up? When I listen to announcers they say he has "average stuff", but how do pitchers with average stuff have 10-13 K games? Some times he is so dominant and sometimes just so awful. I believe in the XFIP..I believe in the XFIP... (repeat prayer). Very unlucky, AX-man blew another save today and cost him the win.

Why did Shin Soo Choo miss a game due to his ankle but then steal a base when he came back? I Appreciated the steal, but this makes my head shake.

Come on Beltre! Please start hitting HRs again. At least the avg is picking up. I need you!
