#10 - Own an Oriole? They went deep yesterday. 7 Baltimore's home runs in total by 5 different players, looks like this team will live into October afterall.
#9 - Edwin Encarnacion (E5) is making life difficult on Miguel Cabrera's tripe crown chase, he went yard for the 42nd time this year bringing him even with the slugger and both are one behind the AL leader Josh Hamilton.
#8 - Jonathan Lucroy has slipped under the radar this year in large part to a midseason injury, but the 26 year old looks prime for a full fledged breakout next year. 43/11/56/4/.328 in just 299 AB's, it wouldn't be crazy to double those stats for his age 27 season.
#7 - Jason Kipnis is making a run, pun intended at 30 stolen bases, two more last night puts him at 29 for the season. As frustrating as the last two months have been, his overall line for the year was more than owners expected.
#6 - C.J. Wilson vs. Felix Hernandez used to be a pitcher's duel out west, but King Felix is scuffling to the finish line and Wilson's been scuffling all year. Hernandez stepped up, but his bullpen failed him as the Angels stay in the playoff race.
#5 - Stephen Drew is rollin', his second four hit game this week and fifth multi-hit game in the last 10. He's making the A's happy they traded for him in a post-deadline deal.
#4 - Matt Kemp did his best Wednesday night to make owners forget about his slow September, but that 12 home run April seems so long ago, just 8 bombs since.
#3 - Norichika Aoki is available in way too many leagues, so it goes in September as many race's have already been decided. He has been an asset for average and stolen bases all year and produced enough runs and home runs too, this has been especially prevalent in September as he has been one of the best in the game. He was the import to target this year as it turns out, sorry Yu.
#2 - Jason Heyward swiped his 20th bag last night, a 30/20 season is still within reach, 2012 was the last season owners will be able to get him outside the top 50 for a very long time.
#1 - Despite the opponents (Cubs and Astros), hat tip to Chris Carpenter. His season was written off long ago, but he fought his way back and has hurled two quality outings to keep the Cardinals in the wild card chase.
