    Ian Desmond (SS-WAS) – Batting second despite a sub-.300 OBP, Desmond was 3-for-4 against Arizona on Friday to bring his line up to .265/.300/.413. Desmond shocked us with a two-homer game a couple nights ago, but it doesn’t change the...

    Tom Gorzelanny (SP-CHC) – Gorzelanny continues to make the Cubs look foolish (I know, not the newest of concepts) for sending him to the bullpen earlier this year. Sunday, Gorzelanny allowed three runs (two earned) over 6.2 innings to beat...
