Top Ten Tuesdays (a Day Late, $38 Short): And You Are....?
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
Yesterday was the first full day off I've taken from my writin' duties here on YC and at FanHouse in a loooooong time, and while I did have fun losing $38 in Vegas (blimey!) I suffered from Acute Baseball Chat Withdrawal Syndrome (ABCWS) and I'm glad to be back. Since my day off fell on a Tuesday, I failed to post my usual Top Ten list (and I'm sure many tear were shed). Don't fret, though, my pets! I've got one for ya right here right now.

The season is just a few weeks old, but at this point there has been enough time to take a gander at a few players' fine performances and cross our fingers that they will remain hot throughout the season. Some of the hot bats and hot hands come from usual suspects and known commodities - Mariano, Chone Figgans, Lance Berkman, Jake Peavy, Ben Sheets, etc etc - but a lot of the star performances thus far have been from new players and journeymen, some of whom we aren't very familiar with at all. Allow me to congratulate...

    Here's the real story behind Leaving Las Vegas.

    Wednesday Observation: Kyle Farnsworth worked a perfect inning last night. His value may never again reach what is clearly a monumental milestone. Trade him now... I'm sure there's a need for a backup 3rd baseman in 1A Charleston. Viva Las Vegas.
