Achievers/Bums - 7/24/08


Matt Cain
- SP - San Francisco Giants - W, Complete Game SHO, 4Ks. Cain's slow start turned some owners off, but those who held onto the Giant have been rewarded. Try to pick him up if you can. How awesome could the Giants be next season if they get some real day-to-day players to go with Lincecum, Sanchez and Cain?

Oliver Perez - SP - New York Mets - Win, 7.2 IP, 12 Ks. Owning Perez is a roller coaster ride. Also, I am pretty sure that I am the first guy to make this analogy. Regardless, great game by the schizo southpaw.

Roy Halladay - SP - Toronto Blue Jays - W, 7.0, 6Ks. Roy Halladay ... blah blah ... win ... blah blah ... lots of innings ... blah blah blah. This guys does not stop, but you already knew that. I am only bringing him up because a genius in my keeper league left both Halladay and Cain on his bench today.


Philedelphia Phillies - Philles' fans like to brag about their great comeback last year. These guys always seem to forget the help that the New York Mets provided in their epic collaspe. After their incredible rally against the Met's crappy bullpen on Tuesday, the Phils had a chance to break the spirit of the Mets, but lost the series to the Mets by failing to win any of the next two games. For all the smack talk that the Phillies spew, they should have finished the Mets off this week, but the other NY team lives to choke another day.
