Giancarlo Stanton tied the NL For the lead with 8 HRs yesterday, when he went deep in the Marlins 9 - 0 romp of the Atlanta Braves.  Stanton also leads the NL in RBI with 32.  He is one of each a HR and an RBI behind Jose Abreu for the MLB lead.  Is this the year Stanton finally reaches projections?

Troy Tulowitzki is on fire.  He homered for the 2nd consecutive game, and is now just 1 Roundtrip behind Giancarlo Stanton and Adrian Gonzalez for the NL Lead.

TULO is also tied with teammate Justin Morneau, for third in RBI this season at 22.

His efforts help the Rockies win last night in Arizona, and the club is now 16 – 12 on the young season, just 0.5 Games behind the Giants. 

Mark Teixeira hit a HR for the second straight contest, and has now clubbed 3 HRs in the week he has been back from injury. 

While the rest of the teams pitching is struggling  or be hurt outside of Masahiro Tanaka, having the 1B hitting like this bodes well for the lineup.

Carlos Santana must be giving fantasy players a collective sigh of relief after putting forth another HR and 3 RBI effort for the 2nd time in as many games in Los Angeles, too bad they were both losses to the Angels. Read the rest of this entry

This should turn out to be quite fun.  A lot of gambling establishments have this sort of deal, and it will be fun to see the results.

What Runs Survivor is, a MLB team scoring 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations.  We are going to keep tracking this category – until all 30 MLB clubs are finished this season!

The Kansas City Royals played their 25th game last night, and became the 6th fastest club to complete their 11 run totals.  The club is far from their offense peak, but last night was promising, dropping a 6 spot in the BOT of 8 to seal a victory against the Blue Jays. Read the rest of this entry
