Continuing our 162-game journey, Fantasy Baseball Insiders Tonight got a close look at Nationals’ starter Luis Atilano on Wednesday. Who the heck is Luis Atilano, you ask? Let’s find out…
Game No. 19 – Washington Nationals vs. Chicago Cubs
After winning his major-league debut against the Dodgers last Friday, Luis Atilano toed the rubber against the Cubs Wednesday afternoon...
Game No. 17 of 162 in Fantasy Baseball Insiders' summer-long journey featured a revived Jose Reyes, and an impressive pitching performance this week's hottest pickup.
Game No. 17 - Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets
Jose Reyes had his best game of the young season Tuesday night against the Cubs, going 4-for-5 with a stolen base and two RBI. Two of his hits were bloop singles, while another was a hard-hit grounder up the middle. He made the most noise, however, with a two-run triple in the second, a well-hit ball that split the gap in left-center.
Fantasy Baseball Insiders’ 162-game journey is being put on hold for one night. While time didn’t allow the Insiders to score an entire game on Thursday, we did watch parts of multiple games.
Hitter of the day: Ryan Braun (4-for-5, BB, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI)
Ryan Braun went 4-for-5 against the Cubs on Thursday, raising his batting average to .378. Milwaukee’s left fielder now has seven runs, three HRs and 11 RBI through nine games. Top-five fantasy player? I think so...
Game No. 11 in our journey to score 162 games this baseball season featured the Brewers and Cubs in an exciting finish at Wrigley Field.
Game No. 11 – Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs
Randy Wells was the story of the first half of this game, striking out six batters through four, all against the Brewers’ one through three batters (Rickie Weeks, Corey Hart, Ryan Braun).
With two outs in the fifth, Rickie Weeks worked a nine-pitch at-bat, forcing Wells to labor for the first time all day. After fouling off three pitches and running the count full, Weeks delivered the Brewers’ first runs of the day, whacking a two-run double into the left-field corner that tied the game...
Another day, another full slate of baseball. Game five of 162 in Fantasy Baseball Insiders' summer-long journey featured the Dodgers and Pirates.
Game No. 5 – Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
Rafael Furcal and Matt Kemp had two hits and two runs on Thursday against the Pirates. Kemp also added two RBI.
