When fantasy owners drafted B.J. Upton this year, they were drafting him as a source for home runs and stolen bases. So far this season, he has just three home runs and three stolen bases. On Monday night, Upton struck out four times and walked once against the Reds, which ended his season-high two-game hitting streak. Upton is currently hitting .148 with 5 RBI and the frustration is mounting for those that own Upton. At this point, you have to stay the course with him. Benching Upton is an option, but don't trade him. GMs are lurking to get Upton as a buy-low candidate. Remain patient because the home runs and stolen bases are coming.
Roy Halladay had a disastrous outing Sunday afternoon against the Marlins. Halladay lasted just 2 1/3 innings and in a 14-2 loss to Miami, and now he is going to see a doctor. After the game, he revealed to reporters that he has been experiencing mild discomfort in his throwing shoulder since his April 24th outing against the Pirates. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. was asked if Halladay had informed anyone in management of the discomfort he felt in his right shoulder after the start against the Pirates. Amaro Jr. said that Halladay had not told anyone and figured it was just normal post game soreness. It appears imminent that Halladay will go on the disabled list. Halladay has a 8.65 ERA and the Phillies have to find out what is going on with their $20 million dollar pitcher.
