Prince Fielder with his NL leading 17th, a moon shot off of John Smoltz.

Capps must've won his appeal because I haven't heard anything about him having to serve that 4 game suspension for plunking that tub of goo since his hearing.

You're gonna be drafting him 7 or 8 rounds higher next year than you did this year.

He might be coming off the board next year in about the same range Ryan Howard did this year, mid-to-late first round.

I know a guy who did a draft over the weekend (in season drafts/leagues seem kind of cheesy to me, but whatever) and he got Fielder with the 11th pick in a 12 team draft. Interestingly enough, he said that JJ Hardy went 9th.

I'm skepical JJ can sustain anything similar to this production all year. I'm strongly considering selling high on him, even more so after reading your post.

This is a free yahoo league I'm talking about, mind you, so take it for what it's worth.

The Rockies win their 7th in a row, 8-3 over St. Louis. It's their first 7 game win streak since 1998.

In my keeper league, a manager landed both Prince Fielder and Ryan Zimmerman on the first week of the season for David Wright.

This is the first time in the season that everything is clicking for them, the hitting, pitching and fielding. Its great! Hopefully they can stay hot and pull off another good month in June. It'll get rough for them, but hopefully they can manage to still play around .500 ball. Like I've said since spring training, I think this is a .500 team. Getting guys healthy now like Lopez and Matsui helped a lot. Now if Atkins started to get hot with the other guys, that would be something.

When did Tub of Goo get back in the league? Somebody should contact Letterman now! ( I think some of these totally go over guys under 30)

And when they don't want to put in Papelbon just throw in Okajima and get the same results. The guy has been pretty much lights out except for a couple games.

Very good....ever since then, I've called any heavy, buffett killer ballplayer a "tub of goo". This Fielder guy is especially irritating to me due to the incident involving Capps and the divisional rivalry with the Brewers...I know the fantasy guys love his fat azz, but since I don't do the fantasy thing...I have no attraction to him.

..and Capps getting out of the bullshat suspension (thus far anyways) is kinda like justice reasserting itself, so all is right with the world on this front. The Brewers are coming back down to Earth BTW and since everyone has a chance in the "Comedy Central" as I've heard it called...I await the next meeting between the teams w/ anticipation.

Fielder is also a hell of a young ballplayer and a lot of fun to watch.

And yes, having him on your roto team does not suck.

Yeah, I cracked up when McCann let Mil get the go ahead with a passed ball between his legs, but then Mil came unglued, which was even funnier. I only saw the beginning of the debacle at the end of my workout.

Maybe for you...the Capps thing turned me against him., which is to be expected...I'm a homer and I stick by my Boys.

I'm hopeful they take at least two from the Padres...but I'm not confident with the bottom part of the rotation coming up. Maholm hasn't exactly been setting the world afire as of late (He reminds me more and more of Kip Wells when he was in the Burgh) and Chacon.....well, I just don't believe in that guy.

Prince is a mad man. He is now one hr away from tying the mlb lead with A-Rod and he just turned 23.

Brad Hawpe is in a groove right now. He just hit his 7th bomb in his last 11 games.

Turn back the clock. The Big Unit pitched a gem tonight.

6 innings of 1 hit ball.
