Well, folks, it’s getting to that point in the season where it’s time to start cutting down the fantasy baseball recap pieces and start turning our attention over to the fantasy football pre-draft festivities. Or, at least, that’s what I’m being told. I’m going to still try and make it over here once a week, if not twice, just depending on whether there’s some real important that I feel should be discussed. After all, there could still be some significant player movement with the waiver trade deadline still looming and once rosters expand on September 1st, there could be more than just a few gems worthy of using over the final month of the season. So not to worry…we’re not shutting out baseball altogether.
While the Fourth of July was celebrated on Thursday, Friday saw a whole lot more in the world of fireworks on the field. Nine teams plated six or more runs with three of those teams hitting double-digits. Meanwhile, teams that didn’t post a high run total were victims of some dazzling pitching performances and fantasy owners who make their living off streaming starters seemed to come out unscathed for the most part. But the best part of the fireworks that we saw on Friday was the fact that it was all about the role players and not so much about the marquee superstars. It was a night for some very unlikely heroes, so let’s get to it.
