Wednesday’s best and worst of fantasy baseball

Three up

Carlos Zambrano- Chicago Cubs
Vs. Cincinnati Reds
Win: 8 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 5 K

Zambrano’s second straight strong start since his return from the disabled list will appease fantasy owners as much as Lou Piniella. Really, Zambrano is one of the premier starting pitchers in baseball, and fantasy players know what they’re getting from him every time he takes the mound. You can tell Carlos I said all these nice things about him, but just read that last sentence aloud instead of sending him a link. We know surfing the web has given him trouble in the past.

Garrett Atkins- Colorado Rockies
@ Milwaukee Brewers
3-for-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 R

Anytime a Rockies hitter rakes on the road, fantasy owners just consider it a bonus. No matter where he’s playing, Atkins has been one of the NL’s top third basemen for three consecutive years now. Though he’s owned in 100% of ESPN fantasy leagues, you may want to look at trading for him. In nine June games, Atkins has 17 hits and 12 RBI.

Carlos Quentin- Chicago White Sox
@ Kansas City Royals
2-for-3, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 3 R, BB

Though nothing as remarkable as a two-run sac fly happened last night, Quentin was the Sox’ only offensive force for most of the game. He’s been a fantasy All-Star this year and is certainly in contention for waiver wire pickup of the year.

One down

Paul Konerko- White Sox
@ Kansas City Royals
0-for-4, 4 K

Yeah, it doesn’t get much worse than that. Unfortunately for the Sox, the former World Series hero seems to be losing more than his hair.
