I can’t believe it has already been a full month of baseball. Here are the guys who knocked the cover off the baseball this past week.



1)      3B David Freese, STL


St. Louis third baseman had a solid week. He had twelve hits, 11 RBI, three home runs and had a .462 AVG.


2)      2B Robinson Cano, NYY


New York couldn’t ask for more from the young second baseman. Cano had eleven hits, seven RBI, rocked four into the stands, and finished the week with a .440 AVG.


Cano’s RBI rate would be even higher if Teixeira made it on the bag once in a while. Cano’s last two homers have been solo shots.


3)      OF Andre Ethier LAD


Hollywood has a new producer and his name is Andre Ethier. The Dodgers outfielder blasted four home runs this week. He had 10 hits, 10 RBI, and a .385 AVG after a week of nice production.


4)      SS Hanley Ramirez FLA


Fantasy baseball’s number two overall draft pick paid off this week. Ramirez hit four homeruns, had nine hits, eight RBI, and ended the week with a .409 AVG.


5)      OF Austin Jackson DET


The Detroit outfielder had a perfectly average week, but in baseball, that means greatness. Jackson ended the week with a .500 AVG while crossing the dish eight times, himself.


6)      3B Evan Longoria TB


Longoria had a nice week after hitting three homeruns, five RBI, stealing two bases, posting a .417 AVG, and touching home plate seven times.


7)      OF Tori Hunter LAA


The Angels outfielder had nine hits, six RBI, two home runs, and topped off the week with a .450 AVG.


8)      OF Alfonso Soriano ChC


Soriano had a stellar week of baseball. He sent four over the outfield wall, posted ten RBI, seven runs, and a .400 AVG was simply the cherry on top.


Soriano’s bat is burning, so he will likely see more time on the field despite his less than spectacular defense. Tyler Colvin will be riding the pine until Soriano’s broomstick cools off.


9)      1B Paul Konerko CWS


The Chicago White Sox first baseman hit home runs like first basemen are supposed to. Konerko hit four dingers and knocked in 10 teammates across the plate. He finished the week with a .316 AVG.


10)   OF Austin Kearns CLE


Kearns had eleven hits, two home runs, eight RBI, one stolen base, and a .393 AVG for the week.
