Achievers/Bums - 8/5/08

Fernando Tatis - OF - New York Mets - 2/4, 2 HRs, 4 RBIs - The Mets and their gimpy bullpen needed all of Tatis' offense to hold off the powerhouse Padres. The Mets LF job is his to lose. Grab him in NL Only and think about him for your Utility/DH spot in deeper mixed leagues.

Dave Bush - SP - Milwaukee Brewers - W, 7.0 IP, 7 Ks - Bush was officially named the fifth starter, and he scored an impressive victory on the road against the Reds. While the Brewers will no longer pitch Bush exclusively at home, you should. Use him as a streamer when he is pitching at home.

Prince Fielder - 1B - Milwaukee Brewers - 1/4, 1 HR, 2 RBIs - Prince pounded the ball like it was one of his teammates (I am sure that I am the only guy to think of that line). Seriously, how does a vegetarian stay so fat? Are they making soy Snickers bars now? Hi-oh.

Aaron Heilman - RP - 0.1 IP, 3 ER - In his first shot at closer replacing Billy Wagner, Aaron Heilman did his best Duaner Sanchez imitiation, turning a four-run lead against the Padres into a one-run game. With Wagner now on the DL, the Mets better hope that Brian Fuentes can make it through the waiver wire.
