Fukao’s Fantasy Fallout: Who’s Hot, Who’s Not

By Jason Fukao

Who’s Hot

OF Sammy Sosa (Tex) – This week’s stats: 4 R, 3 HR, 8 RBI, 0 SB, 5 K, .381 BA

Slammin’ Sammy had a strong week reminiscent of his glory days from his time in a Chicago Cubs uniform. It seems as if he has rediscovered his stroke, reaching 7 homeruns on the year and hopefully, he can keep it up to provide some long-needed punch for that Rangers lineup.

SP Bartolo Colon (LAA) – This week’s stats: 14 IP, 2 W, 0 L, 12 K, 1.93 ERA, 0.86 WHIP

Colon posted a strong coming-out party with two strong starts. This past week suggests that he is past his injury problems that shut him down early last season.

Who’s Not

3B David Wright (NYM) – This week’s stats: 3 R, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 0 SB, 6 K, .143 BA

Wright has only three hits in his last 21 at-bats. As a result, the Mets offense has suffered significantly, scoring a total of 10 runs in their last three games but more importantly, leaving 56 runners on base in those three games.

RP Mariano Rivera (NYY) – This week’s stats: 1.1 IP, 0 W, 0 L, 0 S, 3 K, 27.00 ERA, 3.75 WHIP

Rivera is still looking for his first save of the season. In his last appearance, the Yankees closer gave up 4 runs off three hits and a walk in only a third of an inning in a non-save situation against the Boston Red Sox. His ERA for the season currently stands at 12.15 with a WHIP of 1.95.

  1. Someone explain to me how Sosa and Bonds are going off this year. Can we finally put the ‘roids scandal to rest? If this isn’t proof that Bonds is capable of hitting 700+ homeruns, then I don’t know what is. I’m going to be fucking pissed off if the baseball nation doesn’t collectively acknowledge Bonds’ achievement when he breaks the homerun record.

  2. Bartolo Colon is gonna be an AL Cy Young contender this year!!

  3. Vince, nice snag on Colon in the 19th round in our league. GG!

  4. Colon posted a nice “coming-out party?” What the hell is that? He’s homosexual?
