Miss any of Wednesday night’s action? Don’t fret. Fantasy Baseball Insiders Tonight is here to recap all things fantasy relevant, starting with game No. 23 on our summer-long journey…
Game No. 23 – New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers
The first game of Wednesday’s doubleheader was quick and painless, thanks to fantastic pitching performances from Rick Porcello and Javier Vazquez.
Porcello loaded the bases via two singles and a walk in the second, but escaped the inning without any further damage.

Grady Sizemore finished with two hits and a stolen base. One of the hits was a rope off the wall for a triple. Grady is now batting .316 on the season and just may be on his way back to prominence...
The 2007 season saw breakout campaigns from the likes of Ryan Braun, Carlos Pena, and Fausto Carmona. 2008 brought us the unlikely stories told by Josh Hamilton, Dustin Pedroia, Nate McClouth and Cliff Lee.
2009 was no different, as many players out played their draft day value, making them worthy of this year’s all-surprise team.
