RK Team RECORD CHANGE HIGH/LOW COMMENTS
1

41-25 4 1/11
Curtis Granderson and the Yankees have been red hot, but A-Rod deserves recognition for tying Lou Gehrig in the record books with his 23rd grand slam last week in Atlanta.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
2

42-25 1 1/19
Perhaps the best aspect of the recent hot play of the Dodgers is the ability to make sure Matt Kemp and Ted Lilly are fully healthy before inserting them back in the lineup.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
3

41-27 - 1/5
Colby Lewis was dominant last week, posting a 2-0 mark with a 1.13 ERA, a 0.563 WHIP and 17 Ks in 16 innings.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
4

38-26 2 1/18
The young Nationals squad was riding high until getting socked in the mouth by the Yankees. Chalk it up as a learning experience.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
5

39-28 2 1/29
Wei-Yin Chen continues to put together a strong rookie campaign for the O’s, winning twice last week against the Pirates and Braves.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
6

37-29 2 1/15
If the Rays could only play the Marlins more than six times a year. In six games this season, the Rays dominated their intrastate rival offensively (6.5 runs per game, .270 avg.) and defensively (5-1, 1.20 ERA).
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

38-28 7 1/22
Brandon Phillips’ bat was as hot as any in the league last week and he reminded Cincinnati fans that he can still flash the leather as well.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

36-32 2 2/25
You know you have a good pitching staff when your offense registers just 11 runs and you still finish the week 4-2.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
9

38-30 1 4/16
Is it weird that the fact Tim Lincecum has pitched this poorly this long is more surprising than Matt Cain throwing a perfect game?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

35-32 4 3/25
It was a tale of two bullpens for the White Sox against the Dodgers. The ‘pen threw four no-hit innings of relief in the lone win, but posted a 9.00 ERA with two blown saves in the two losses.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

34-31 - 5/27
The Pirates can’t afford another Pedro Alvarez offensive free fall if they hope to stay in contention.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

35-32 3 3/18
Just when you think the Braves have finally figured it out, they tank. Having to place co-ERA leader Brandon Beachy on the DL will not help.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

36-32 1 5/27
The Mets scored 29 runs in a three-game sweep of the Rays. They followed that up by scoring just five runs and getting swept in a three-game series vs. the Reds.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

34-33 2 7/25
First Brandon Morrow, now Kyle Drabek is on the DL. It doesn’t look good for Drabek, who is reportedly scheduled to visit with Dr. James Andrews and may need a second Tommy John surgery.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

32-34 4 1/21
It’s nice to have Austin Jackson back in the lineup. The speedy center fielder has picked up right where he left off, hitting .290 with 10 RBI in his first eight games since returning from the DL.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

34-32 3 6/29
Rough week of interleague play for the Indians, getting swept in Cincinnati and winning just one against the Pirates.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

33-33 5 10/26
Josh Beckett was placed on the DL for the first time since 2010 and Kevin Youkilis is struggling mightily at the plate. These are not your 2007 Boston Red Sox.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

34-33 - 2/19
Jason Motte and the Cardinals bullpen have been rocked of late, but the offense isn’t doing them any favors.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

33-33 4 6/26
The bullpen was taxed last week while the bats went silent in the sunshine state. Ozzie is due for another epic rant.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

33-34 3 4/22
Given his team’s performance against the Rangers and the Angels, perhaps Kirk Gibson should have attended his kid’s high school graduation.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

31-36 1 12/25
Solid pitching and the reigning MVP putting up bigger numbers than last year, but the Brewers just can’t find ways to win of late.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

31-36 6 4/28
The A’s were 5-1 last week, yet the biggest news to come out of Oakland was the release of Manny Ramirez … a guy who had yet to play an inning for the club.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

31-37 2 5/27
The Phillies haven’t been this far south of .500 since 2007. But that year they wound up rallying to win the NL East.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

29-36 2 13/29
Catching prospect Salvador Perez (.331 avg. in 39 games last season) is scheduled to return soon for the Royals, winners of five of six last week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

29-40 2 18/26
It is yet to be determined what role Oliver Perez will have with the M’s, but when called upon, the lefty will make his first major league appearance since Oct. 3, 2010 with the Mets.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

26-39 1 22/30
The Twins broke out for 37 hits during their two wins last week … four more than the 33 they mustered in their four losses.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

28-39 3 22/30
The Astros are striking out an average of 11.1 times per game through the first 15 games of this month. Perhaps the return of Carlos Lee can calm the nerves of this young team.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

25-40 1 16/29
Interleague hasn’t done the Rockies any favors and with a nagging knee injury to Carlos Gonzalez, things could get worse … if that is possible.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

24-44 1 19/30
Carlos Quentin’s hot start since his return has sparked the Padres. Now if only he could pitch.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

23-44 1 24/30
The Cubs’ struggles against left-handed starters this season continues to boggle the mind of manager Dale Sveum.
