Fantasy Baseball Weekly Wonders Vol. 8

May 27, 2008
Still waiting on the baby.  We’re in extra innings now.  Thursday at the latest.  I’m still having technical difficulties with my site following an upgrade of my blogging platform.  The comments are turned off for some reason.  Hopefully, I’ll have the problem fixed soon.

Enough programming notes.  On the meat.

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

Pitcher
Glen Perkins - I know it’s only a week, but some of the pitchers I’ve profiled on the Weekly Wonders (John Danks, Edison Volquez, Greg Smith, Daniel Cabrera) have kept it up.  This week I profile Minnesota native and Twins pitcher Glen Perkins.  In his two starts last week he allowed 3 Earned Runs in 12 Innings (1.93 ERA).  He struck out 7 with just 2 Walks in his first two career Wins.  Bartolo Colon is a hot pickup too, but he’s much higher profile.

Catcher
Miguel Olivo 
- Kansas City’s Miguel Olivo  had a solid week going 5 for 12 (.417) with 1 Run, 2 Doubles, a HR, 5 HRs, and even a SB.  He has a hit in three straight games.

Corner Infielder
Kevin Kouzmanoff - San Diego’s 3rd Baseman Kouzmanoff was on fire last week going 10 for 26 (385) with 6 Runs, 4 HRs, 7 RBI, and a pair of Walks.  He had four multiple hit games last week.

Middle Infielder
Marco Scutaro
- Toronto’s Scutaro was solid last week going 8 for 23 (.348) with 4 Runs, a Double, a HR, 5 RBI, 3 Walks, and a SB.  He had three multiple hit games.  As an added bonus, in Yahoo leagues he qualifies at 2B, 3B, SS, and OF.

Outfielder
Jack Cust - Oakland’s Cust continued to rake last week going 5 for 15 (.333) with 6 Runs, a Double, 3 HRs, 7 RBI, and 4 Walks.  He scored at least a Run in five of six games last week.
