Fantasy Baseball Weekly Wonders Vol. 19
Jeff Karstens - Karstens has exploded on the scene in Pittsburgh since arriving from the Yankees in the Xavier Nady deal. All he’s done is throw fifteen consecutive scoreless Innings going 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP. He threw a two-hit Shutout vs. Arizona.
Chris Snyder - It was a slow week for Catchers, but Arizona’s Chris Snyder tied for second among backstops in RBI last week. He went 3 for 13 (.231) with 3 Runs, a Double, a HR, 4 RBI, and 4 Walks.
Geoff Blum - Houston’s Geoff Blum did some raking last week going 5 for 13 (.385) with 5 Runs, a Double, 2 HRs, and 4 RBI in limited action. As a bonus he qualifies at 2B, 3B, and SS in Yahoo leagues.
Jolbert Cabrera - Cincinnati’s Jolbert Cabrera joins the mix. Last week he went 5 for 12 (.417) with 5 Runs, a Double, a HR, an RBI, 2 Walks, an a SB. In Yahoo leagues he qualifies at 2B & SS. Plu, he played in the OF over the weekend.
Marlon Byrd - I think it’s a law that every Texas player needs to be a FBWW this season. The latest to join the club is Marlon Byrd. He destroyed opposing pitching last week to the tune of 16 for 28 (.571) with 9 Runs, 4 Doubles, 2 HRs, 8 RBI, 3 Walks, and 2 SBs. Not only did he hit in all but one game last week, he had multiple hits in each of those six games.
