50-30 - 1/5
No surprise here, the Rangers will send an AL-best seven guys to the All-Star Game … and that is before the Final Vote in which Yu Darvish is a candidate.

45-35 - 2/25
Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout, not Albert Pujols, are the position players who will represent the AL squad in the All-Star Game. Who would have predicted that at the beginning of the season?

The Giants front office deserves major props for their All-Star voting effort.

Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

43-36 1 5/27
What led to the Pirates’ memorable June? Offense! Their 146 runs in the month led the majors, and it nearly matched their total of 149 from the first two months combined.

42-38 1 10/26
Tip of the cap to Aaron Cook, who was brilliant in his two-hit shutout of the Mariners last week.

12

42-37 1 3/25
Rough weekend for Jake Peavy. Not only did the White Sox co-ace get left off the initial All-Star team, he lost in New York despite striking out 11 Yankees in eight innings on Saturday.

42-38 5 1/15
All-Star David Price was the lone bright spot in a forgettable week for the Rays, who lost six of seven to the Royals and Tigers.

40-39 1 6/29
Despite having just two wins in June to show for it, Ubaldo Jimenez has been pitching like the top arm the Tribe traded for last season.

17

39-40 1 4/22
Aaron Hill decided hitting for the cycle just once in a season wasn’t good enough, so he decided to do it again 11 days later.

Jose Bautista just finished a historic stretch of baseball, becoming just the fifth player in American League history with 14 home runs and 30 RBI in the month of June.

42-38 - 2/19
In Allen Craig’s first 39 games since returning from the DL, the outfielder/first baseman has driven in 39 runs. That is a huge boost to an already potent offense.

The Marlins finished up the month of June with an 8-18 record. Yikes. But hey, it is still better than last year’s month of June when they went 5-23!

21

39-42 1 4/28
Not a bad start to the season for Chris Carter. The A’s first baseman hit a home run in each of his two games over the weekend after getting the call on June 29.

22

37-42 1 12/25
Zack Greinke was not selected for the NL All-Star staff despite a 9-2 record, a 2.82 ERA and 102 strikeouts through June. Wonder if his agent will file a complaint.

It was an up-and-down week for the Royals, after winning their first four games, they dropped three in a row to Minnesota to fall further back in the AL Central.

Joe Blanton continues to serve ‘em up, and opponents continue to hit ‘em out. Where is the fight in the Phils?

Look at the Cubs! Winners of five of six last week and landing two players on the All-Star team! Good week for a bad team.
