Achievers/Bums - Weekend Edition


Cliff Lee - SP - Cleveland Indians - Yes, it was against Seattle, but Lee earned his 13 win with a complete game on Sunday. He now stands at 13-2 with a 2.29 ERA and 110Ks in 133.2 innings.

Cody Ross - OF - Florida Marlins - Four hits, including a 2B, 3B and HR, over two days against Philly. He still might on your waiver wire, as I picked him up in two leagues this morning. Plus, he might have the best picture on Yahoo, though this Cody's picture might be better.

Evan Longoria - 3B - Tampa Bay Blank Rays - The Desperate H-Ray continued his quest for Rookie of the Year with a Grand Slam against demigod Roy Halladay. His line is now .272/18/68 with six SBs for a little spice.


Brandon Lyon - Lyon got rocked, giving up five runs in 2/3 of an inning, blowing the save and costing Brandon Webb his 14th victory. Co-bum honors should go Bob Melvin for working him for the third day in a row. While he has been stinky in his last two appearances, I would not worry too much. If you are panicking, pick up Tony Pena.

Rickie Weeks - It seems that every season is supposed to be Weeks' breakthrough season, but in the end, Weeks ends up as a disappointment. This season is no different, except that the Brewers have picked up paleolithic 2nd baseman Ray Durham. I am not saying that Durham is old, but for his first birthday, his parents gave him fire as a present. Regardless, Weeks needs to improve his .326 OBP quickly, or it will be pine time for him.

Kerry Wood - Water is wet, the sun rises in the east, and Kerry Wood will probably go on the DL with his blister. Wood should be complimented for going this deep in the season before getting injured. If you are a smart Wood owner, you already have Carlos Marmol. If you don't have Marmol, you should hope that Damaso Marte or Jonathan Broxton are still available on the waiver wire.
