Fielder Turning Up the Heat in August

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with an RBI against the Cubs to Tuesday. He already has eight hits in three August games. Fielder hasn’t been the easiest star to own in fantasy leagues this season, but he won’t have to deal with trade rumors for the rest of the season and very well could have a big hot streak in him. He’s now hitting .270/.402/.499 with 52 RBI. (RotoWorld)

Roster Moves – Week 18 – August 3rd, 2010

Up:

  • C Ronny Paulino
  • MI Cristian Guzman
  • OF Roger Bernadina (to UT)
  • RP Drew Storen

Down:

  • C Chris Iannetta
  • MI Luis Castillo
  • OF Matt Diaz
  • SP Edinson Volquez

Notes:

  • SS Cristian Guzman was traded to the Texas Rangers on July 29th in a deadline deal.  He’ll start at 2B while Ian Kinsler is on the DL (expected until the end of August).
  • RP Drew Storen has seen his path to saves become a bit clearer.  Nationals closer Matt Capps was dealt to the Twins in a July 27th trade.  For now, Storen, fellow RoadRunner Tyler Clippard, and Sean Burnett will rotate for saves, though Burnett got the save last night. Update: It was a 1-2/3 inning save after Burnett entered to face a lefty.  Storen had pitched 2 innings Sunday.
  • RP Joel Hanrahan is also in a position for more saves, with the trade of Pirates closer Octavio Dotel to the Dodgers on July 31st.  He and Evan Meek will vie for ninth-inning duties.
  • The Braves acquired Royals OF Rick Ankiel, who will be added to the LF/CF mix, so Matt Diaz will likely see a decrease in ABs.
  • The Shoeless Jews picked up former 2010 RoadRunner Chris Volstad, who was called up from AAA two weeks ago.  Volstad isn’t really protectable at $10.
  • Misogynistic Padres picked up former 2010 RoadRunner Juan Gutierrez.  Gutierrez is blowing the majority of the save opportunities for new Diamondback’s manager Kirk Gibson.  Seriously, he’s 0-6 with 3 saves and an ERA of 6.69, which is down from earlier this year.
  • Goodfellas took advantage of a RoadRunner mistake, picking up MI Omar Infante of the Braves for a $1 FAAB bid (I had bid $0).  Infante was released last week in the Luis Castillo gambit, but will now be the starting 2B with Martin Prado on the DL.  Goodfellas has Prado, so perhaps it was just a case of picking up the backup.
  • In the first FAAB bidding since the MLB trade deadline, bids were fast and furious.  The only player I bid on was new Dodgers OF Scott Podsednik, who came over from the Royals.  Here was the bidding:  $93 (X-Men), $75 (Misogynistic Padres), $47 (Goodfellas), $29 (Get Off Kong), $16 (AaRr), $5 (Pi Train)
