Fantasy Baseball Players of the Day – All-Star Game Edition
2008 MLB All-Star Game
J.D. Drew took home MVP honors going 2 for 4 with a Run, a HR, 2 RBI, a Walk, and a SB. Home Run Derby Champ Justin Morneau went 2 for 4 with 2 Runs (including the game-winner), a Double, and a Walk. The NL got solid offensive contributions from their Shortstops as Hanley Ramirez and Miguel Tejada each went 2 for 3 with a Run. Tejada added a Walk and a SB. Albert Pujols also collected two Hits. Matt Holliday clubbed a HR for the game’s first Run. It was the NL’s only Extra-base Hit.
Obviously pitchers don’t last long in All-Star Games, but a few performances stood out. Starters Cliff Lee and Ben Sheets each allowed 1 Hit in 2 scoreless Innings with 3 Ks. Aaron Cook had the longest outing throwin 3 scoreless Innings. Ryan Dempster struck out the side. Carlos Zambrano, Dan Haren, and George Sherrill all pitched at least 2 scoreless Innings. Scott Kazmir pitched a scoreless 15th Inning for the Win.
