Finally the word VALDEZ seen in a positive light!

Going back to a game from Wednesday night…actually Thursday morning..the Phillies victory over the Reds in 19 innings. The real hero of the game was Phillies IF Wilson Valdez. Thought to have lost his role with the team with the return of 2B Chase Utley from the DL, now perhaps Charlie Manuel can find another use for him…out of the bullpen. He became the first position player since Brett Mayne of the Rockies beat the Braves on 8/22/00 to record a win. He’s now tied for wins with Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter, and has 1 more win than John Danks of the White Sox. Let’s break down the top of the 19th inning….he gets reigning and defending MVP Reds 1B Joey Votto to hit a 395 foot fly ball to dead center for the first out, plunks Scott Rolen (I’m sure whatever Philly fans were left at this point weren’t terribly upset about that), then got hot hitting OF Jay Bruce to fly out, and then pinch-hitter Carlos Fisher to fly out as well to end the game. Wait what? You don’t know who Carlos Fisher is? Probably because he’s a pitcher too. Crazy game…you got a hitter pitching to a pitcher with the game on the line.  Wouldn’t you know both teams have to come back out and do it again because they have a Thursday afternoon game at Citizens Bank Park.

INJURY NEWS

Giants C and reigning NL rookie of the year Buster Posey has a broken bone in his lower leg and could possibly be done for the season after a scary collision at home plate Wednesday night against the Marlins.

Angels 2B Howie Kendrick was placed on the DL with a hamstring injury.

Reds SP Homer Bailey left Thursday’s game with the Phillies in the bottom of the 5th with tightness in his right shoulder.

Mets SP RA Dickey left Thursday’s game against the Cubs in the 3rd inning after injuring his right heel covering first base.

Marlins SS Hanley Ramirez sat out Thursday’s game after being hit by a pitch in the foot in the 9th inning of Wednesday’s game.

For the good news….Indians OF Grady Sizemore hopes to return to the lineup on Friday.

Cubs C Geovany Soto hopes to return this weekend.

The Giants called up 1B/OF Brandon Belt.

The Rockies are going to call up rookie SP Juan Nicasio to pitch on Sunday.  He has put up some pretty amazing numbers in AA ball this year.

Detroit will call up SP Andy Oliver to pitch Sunday vs Boston.  He also has put up good numbers this season in the minors, however, that’s not an offense you want to make your debut against.  For fantasy purposes at least.

The Indians were on the warpath in Kansas City tonight

The Cleveland Indians jumped all over the Kansas City Royals Monday night and pummeled them 19-1. 1B Matt Laporta was 4-4 with 4 RBIs. The unfortunate victim in all of this, not counting KC’s fans was Vin Mazzero. He lasted an inning and a third and gave up 14 earned runs. That’s hard to do.

INJURY NEWS

Speaking of Indians, OF Grady Sizemore went on the DL with a knee injury.

Red Sox SP John Lackey was placed on the DL with an elbow injury.

Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind is on the DL with a bad back.

Hey it is 4/4 today. Paying homage to The Man...just don't let him near the Queen!!

So I’ve been telling you all along not to panic…it’s only the first week of the season. Hitters are very streaky. What about pitchers you ask? I wouldn’t overreact over pitching debuts either. But what you can do is target the owners that do.  Look for someone in your league with a trigger finger like Raylan Givens and make your move.  Here’s some guys to target…
