Fantasy Errata

-- Bobby Cox's pants must be on fire. How Rafael Soriano's "minor elbow pain" goes to a DL stint in less than a day is truly remarkable.

-- Edwin Encarnacion hit a monster bomb today. Did anyhone drop him in your league?

-- Edwin Jackson has walked six runners in 14 innings. Acceptable, particularly for him. Ten Ks? Pretty damn good. He's only 25 and may have turned the corner. Should now be owned in all AL-only leagues. One more start like that, and he becomes a spot starter for Ks in mixed leagues. How much more of this will Seattle take before they get Bonds on the speed dial?

-- The top of the Rays' lineup has been brutal. Just brutal. Iwamura, Crawford, Pena, and Upton all need to get taken behind the woodshed.

-- As a C.J. Wilson owner, at first I was very concerned that Texas allowed a pitcher with recent elbow trouble to pick up saves in both games of a doubleheader. Then I saw it only took him 18 pitches to record six outs. Thanks Baltimore!

-- Geovany Soto goes 4-for-5 with a dinger, and is now batting .333. I have tempered my enthusiasm, but one more game like this and I'm going to start foaming at the mouth.

-- Apparently this Felipe Lopez in left field thing is going to last awhile. Hey, whatever gets those 30+ steals in the lineup.

-- Keith Foulke gets a save for the Oakland A's? What is this, 2003? If Huston Street gets traded, don't forget that from 1999 to 2004 he was lights out filthy.

-- Brian Wilson gets a save the hard way, coming in with two runners on with one out. But, he gets it done, which I'm sure makes his owners happy after two shaky outings. The Giants actually scored five runs, which puts them on pace to score five or more about 15 times.

-- I had to go online and check to see if my eyes were deceiving me. Was that Hideo Nomo? It was! Every time he tries to step away, they pull him back in. They being the Kansas City Royals who apparently decided to stick him in middle relief. I'll never forget that Hideo Nomo threw a no-hitter in Colorado at the height of the non-humidor, steroid era.

-- Shaun Marcum fanned eight and allowed one in seven innings, but received a no-decision. Which may make him easier for you to acquire.

-- I think Jorge Cantu can feel the vultures circling. He goes 3-for-4 and has been hitting the ball real well for the last three or four games, including a homer. I think they find a place for him to play, but we'd all prefer he beat out Wes Helms for the job.

-- Rich Harden goes on the DL. It was nice while it lasted.
