  • Matt Kemp goes 2-for-5, homers
    Matt Kemp finished 2-for-5 with a homer against the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Kemp has four homers in the last 10 days and seven since the All-Star break. It's just too bad he's stopped running; he's tried just one steal in the second half after going 8-for-9 during the first half. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 11:06 pm
  • CarGo continues power surge
    Carlos Gonzalez was 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and three runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: CarGo's ridiculous power surge continues. After beginning the year with just four home runs through his first 49 games, he has 25 over his last 64 games. The 29-year-old is batting .272/.333/.539 overall on the year. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 10:04 pm
