- Week 9 Results- 


5 Hits

2 Misses

Season to date: 34 – 21 – 1 


With exception of Nick and Jedd, It was a nondescript week for the 3 IN/OUT picks for week 9. Here are the results from the week, followed by a recipe for Grilled Corn & Cheese Cakes




The main questions when it comes to Billy Butler are, “Is he helping your team win?” and “Are there other 1B out there that are better?” The answers in week 9 were “No” and “Yes”. Sure, Billy scored three times, but that was really about it. I hope you took my suggestion and found a replacement for him.



Nick Markakis is riding a hot streak right now, and you better get on board. He is getting on base, scoring runs, hitting bombs and driving his teammates home. I hope you are playing him while he is hot, because his dreaded injury is right around the corner, and he has not played a full season in three years.



Jedd Gyorko is another player hitting well. You can’t argue with the production he gave in week 9, and if he is your starting two bagger, you probably are killing it in your league.



Paul Maholm had a tale of two starts in week 9 and rebounded from his first start to get the win Sunday against the Nationals. Maholm surrendered five runs on 10 hits May 28 at Toronto but was solid Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits while striking out four and walking none in the 6-3 win. It all comes back to the question, did he help or hurt your team with his roster spot? I am going with help and a good recommendation.



Danny Espinosa (36%) is owned by more teams in Y! than Yonder Alonso (22%). I am not sure why as it is only a matter of time until Danny losses his starting job in DC all together. He should have lost his starting gig for fantasy teams long ago and had another bad week.





Speaking of Yonder, he was a tough one to call this week. His average didn’t hurt you and he stole a base, that was good, but he didn’t drive anyone in only scored a couple of times. I guess if Butler can be considered a bust for week 9, so can Alonso.



On the opposite side of the spectrum, you have Altuve. Jose had a bunch of at bats, and swiped 4 bags, scored a few times and hit a couple of doubles. If he could only get on base more. I suggested you bench him last week and while there were probably better hitters at the postion, none were better runners.






Grilled Corn & Cheese Cakes


The corn flavor is enhanced by spicy pepper Jack cheese, and the panko provides a perfectly crisp crust. Although they are rich, they’re not heavy; they are satisfying and filling but still light.



3 ears fresh white corn, husked and corn cut from the cob
3/4 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese (3 ounces)
1 cup fine plain panko breadcrumbs, divided
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
1 chipotle chile in adobo, minced
1 tablespoon sour cream
2 tablespoons minced cilantro, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup crème fraîche, for serving



In a food processor, pulse the corn into a chunky puree. Place in a medium bowl. Add the cheese, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, chives, sour cream, chipotle chile, 1 tablespoon chipotle chiles in adobo, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined.

Form the mixture into small balls and then flatten into patties, each about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and 3/4-inch thick. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Coat the patties in the remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and drizzle with olive oil.

Brush the patties with olive oil and grill until toasted, 4 to 5 minutes each side.

Arrange the corn cakes on a platter and top with a dollop of crème fraîche.
