News
So you're the lucky owner who invested in Wilin Rosario and have driven yourself crazy trying to find an adequate replacement?

Let me ask you: Have you given a second thought to Russell Martin? Probably not. He's pretty much established his mediocrity over the last few years and is a not-so-impressive 68 percent owned.

Well, here's a revelation for you: Martin has averaged more Head-to-Head points per game this season than Buster Posey. Yes, really.

The reason I use average points per game is because he missed a month earlier this season with a strained hamstring. Since returning May 23, he's batting .305 with an incredible .431 on-base percentage and .860 OPS.

The plate discipline isn't so new to him. The batting average is. Plagued by inconsistency since his early days with the Dodgers, when he was shaping up to be an elite Fantasy catcher, he typically finishes with a batting average south of .250, but in three of the four months since his return, he has hit over .300.

Kind of makes 2008 seem not so long ago, doesn't it?

News
Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez tossed a fantastic start Friday against the Reds.

Volquez gave up one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Volquez was exceptional to open the game. He didn’t give up a hit until the seventh inning. Volquez gave up another hit against the next batter, but managed to work his way out of the inning. He wasn’t as fortunate in the eighth inning. Volquez put two men on during the inning, and was pulled from the game. Tony Watson gave up a run-scoring single after Volquez left. The run was charged to Volquez.

Volquez left with the game tied, picking up the no-decision. He’ll take on the Cardinals in his next start.
