Fantasy Baseball 3 IN/OUT week 10











Because it’s never too early to start thinking about your next week’s matchup.




-   Week 10 –

Each week, the FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT will not include players that are locks for your starting rosters, just the ones that are considered “fringe” starters. The 3 IN/OUT are the ones that you may have on the bench or ones that you can find on the waiver wire. Either way, they are the players you should start and players you need to bench. This week we again talk about 7 players that can help or hurt your team in week 10. And as always, it’s followed by a great recipe.

This time it’s Pickled Shrimp, a great food to can take to a party, or bring on a picnic.

Lets get to it.



3 IN



Adam LaRoche – B, WAS
week 10 matchups: vs NYM, vs. MIN

Adam seems to be emerging from his early-season slumber, as he has raised his batting average 27 points during his 8-game hit streak. His is due for more hits in general and more doubles in particular, because LaRoche has been limited to five doubles in part because of apparent bad luck.



Everth Cabrera 2B/SS, SD
week 10 matchups: @LAD, @ COL

Everth recorded his league-leading 19th stolen base of the season and the 100th of his career last Saturday, May 25. The 26-year-old shortstop is having a breakout fantasy season. The NL stolen base king last season needs to be started in week 10 and every week going forward.



Hunter Pence RF, SF
week 10 matchups: vs TOR, @ ARI

Momma also said wear clean Hunter Pence, and she is always right. Hunter homered in back-to-back games twice last week and he’s up to 29 RBI. The really nice surprise for fantasy owners, though, is that he’s 9-for-9 stealing bases. Since swiping 18 bases in 2010, he had fallen off to eight in 2011 and five last year. Star with confidence in week 10.







Jimmy Rollins SS, PHI

week 10 matchups: vs MIA, @ MIL

The Phillies dropped shortstop Jimmy Rollins from first to third in the lineup during Monday’s contest against the Red Sox. He had a good game, but since then has not had a hit. Happy picture aside, look for a replacement in week 10.



Jonathan Lucroy C, MIL
week 10 matchups: vs OAK, vs PHI

Lucroy has seemed to play better while receiving more regular rest the last week or so, perhaps prompting manager Ron Roenicke to start Martin Maldonado behind the plate two of the last four games. He has all of his week 10 games at home where he is hitting better on the season, so that is a positive, but if you have other options, use them in this week.



Brandon Moss 1B/LF/RF, OAK
week 10 matchups: @ MIL, @ CHW

Brandon Moss homered for the first time in 10 games Saturday against the Astros. It was his seventh home run of the season and third in May. But Moss has just one multi-hit game in 26 May appearances. I see that trend continue and he is not worthy of a starting role for your team or his ballclub.




Two-Start Pitcher of the Week


The FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT Two-start pitcher will not include top tier starters. Those pitchers will always be on your starting roster for the upcoming week. It’s those fringe starters, the ones you use to fill your last roster spot that we think will give you 2 quality starts in one week.


Here are the must start top options and their scheduled opponents in week 10:


  • F Hernandez, 6/4 vs CHW Peavy 6/9 vs NYY

A.J. Griffin, OAK
Week 10 starts: 6/3 @ MIL (Estrada) & 6/8 @ CHW (Danks)
A.J. Griffin got off to a strong start last night against the Giants, but the sixth inning ultimately cost him the game. Griffin allowed one hit in the first five innings before being charged with four runs in the sixth. He allowed five hits and a walk with five strike outs in 5 2/3 innings of a 4-1 loss. Griffin (5-4) has a 4.04 ERA. Griffin will next start and them later in the week in Chicago against the White Sox.

Pickled Shrimp


This recipe requires high-quality wild shrimp. Of course, I prefer wild Gulf shrimp from the waters. It’s better to find the best shrimp than to worry about whether they’ve been frozen or not. Unless the shrimp come straight from the net to your kitchen, sometimes the highest quality are frozen. This is where a trusty fishmonger makes all the difference. You can mix up your vegetables with the shrimp, using whatever’s fresh and local. I love to add cauliflower, carrots, daikon, beans, onions, mirliton, and/or okra.



for the brine:

2 cups rice wine vinegar

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Zest and juice of 1 orange

1/2 cup sugar

5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon coriander seed

1 tablespoon mustard seed

1 tablespoon peppercorns

1 tablespoon red chili flakes

2 bay leaves

Pinch kosher salt


For the Shrimp:

12 baby carrots, peeled

12 green beans

12 pearl onions, peeled

12 okra pods

2 pounds boiled wild Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined



For the brine, combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan. Add 2 ½ cups water and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Pack all the vegetables and shrimp into a very large glass jar, alternating layers. Pour the hot brine into the jar to cover. Cover the jar and let cool. Refrigerate overnight. Serve right from the jar when you’re ready.
