Fantasy Baseball Weekly Wonders Vol. 13

Jun 30, 2008

A look back at the past week in baseball to bring you the surprising stars.  

Pitcher
Kevin Slowey - Starting pitching has been great on the Twins’ current 11-1 run.  Slowey has been one of their finest.  In the past week he went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.47 WHIP in 15 Innings with 15 Ks without a Walk.  Since getting bombed by the White Sox on June 8th, Slowey has allowed 3 Runs in 29 Innings (0.93 ERA).

Catcher
Jason Kendall - How about Milwaukee’s Jason Kendall for a blast from the past?  He turned 34 on Thursday and hit .333 (6 of 18) last week.  He added 2 Runs, an RBI, a Walk, and a SB.  Not too bad for a grizzled vet.

Corner Infielder
Ryan Gload - Kansas City’s Gload was hitting a load last week with his .450 batting averaged (9 or 20).  He added 6 Runs, 3 Doubles, a HR, 6 RBI, and 3 Walks.  As an added bonus, he qualifies at OF as well in Yahoo leagues.

Middle Infielder
Willie Harris
 - Washington’s Willie Harris was hot last week.  The Georgia native went 7 of 19 (.368) with 3 Runs, a Triple, a HR, an RBI, 3 Walks, and 2 SBs.  Willie turned 30 on Sunday, June 22nd.

Outfielder
Jim Edmonds - Kendall isn’t the only grizzled vet that tore it up last week.  Chicago Cubs’ Jim Edmonds stepped back in time to go 6 of 19 (.316) with 5 Runs, 3 HRs, 6 RBI, and 6 Walks.  He also celebrated a birthday last week, turning 38 on Friday.

    What the heck is up with Jim Edmonds? He’s too old…right?

    Wassup – One man’s trash is another man’s treasure I guess.
