- Week 6 Results- 


7 Hits

2 Misses

Season to date: 20 – 14 – 1


With the exception of Melky and Wilin, the FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT predictions were spot one. I have to give out hits and misses, so here what you hope to get for the week from a player that is “IN” worthy:


  • Get around nine hits
  • Score 4 runs
  • Reach second base on one swing at least twice
  • Slug more than 1 homer
  • Plate five or more runs.
  • Steal a base or two
  • Hit for .275 or more.


  • Get a win (or two)
  • Strike out around a batter an inning
  • Throw for a decent ERA and Whip.

Here are the results from week 6, followed by a recipe for Pork Burgers with Apple Tarragon Slaw.




B.J. Upton stuggled again in week 6 and I hope you listened to me and benched him. Braves manager Freddie Gonzalez dropped B.J. into the second spot in the lineup Tuesday in an attempt to jump-start his offense. Gonzalez is hoping Upton will see more fastballs hitting in front of his brother, Justin Upton. “Maybe getting in front of Justin will do [B.J.] better.” He added, “The player we’re seeing right now is not even one-tenth of the player he is, or has been or is capable of being, I really believe that. He’s talented; he’s better than that.” Here is his week 6 line:



Ian Desmond was 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI on Friday night and then went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBI on Saturday afternoon. That really made his week, seeing that he one hit in the rest of the games. The 27-year-old credited his power surge to moving up in the batter’s box in order to connect on more breaking balls. “It’s just minor adjustments,” Desmond told on Friday. I hope you had him on your roster his week came as advertised:



Todd Frazier had a nice game on Saturday, scoring 3 runs, but that was the only time that he would cross the plate in the week.  After going 0 for 4 on Sunday, his average hit the lowest of the season and sits at .236. He needs to start hitting for you to consider him a starter for your team, but is one of those players that can break out a have a big game anytime, so he is better suited for the daily gamers when he has tasty matchups.



Chase Headley saw his 13 game hit streak come an end on Friday, and had a nice but not great week for your team.  He didn’t hurt you enough to be considered a miss and looks like he will be traded prior to the July 31st deadline. While several teams figure to be interested in the slugger, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports believes Headley would be “perfect” for the Chicago Cubs.



Nick Tepesch struggled through four innings against the Cubs on Monday, allowing six runs — five earned — to take a loss, but bounced back nicely and turned in a stellar performance as he struck out eight and earned his third win of the season Sunday afternoon against the Astros. Nick allowed a solo home run to Jason Castro in the fourth for his only mistake of the day. The right-hander yielded the run and four hits over 6 1/3 innings of a 12-7 victory. He struck out eight and walked one in 84 pitches, 55 for strikes. While his ERA was not great for your team, he got you 12 Ks and a win in week 6.





The Melk Man” started the week very nicely with 7 hits in 3 games, but didn’t do to much after that. Maybe it’s because he is dealing with some sore hammies. Melky Cabrera hasn’t missed a game this season, but he said Sunday he’s battling through issues to both hamstrings. “My legs are a little sore,” Cabrera said through an interpreter. “My hamstrings are a little tight, but I’m going to give it whatever I have that day. I want to be in the lineup every day, no matter what. That’s why I continue to play.” He added, “I’m feeling better, I’m showing up early every day to get my work done in the cage, and I’m going to go out and continue to play hard. Nothing has changed. Nothing I’m doing different. I’m just continuing to work, and it’s paying off now that I’m putting more work into it.” I told you to bench him last week and while his numbers were not exciting, they did help you enough to consider that prediction a miss:



Baby Bull” had a rough week. Wilin Rosario only had 2 hits in week 6 and saw his average drop from around .300 to .277.  He came into the month of May on fire and has since fizzled, just like his whole team, who only won twice in the week.  Wilin has an extreme home/away split this year, but I expect that to change in the warmer air in Denver. Just like I expected him to help your team in week 6, he didn’t:









Pork Burgers with Apple-Tarragon Slaw

2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
½ cup coarsely grated tart green apple
½ cup coarsely grated carrot
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
