Players of the night

Pitching

Jason Marquis - Rockies
@ Dodgers
W, CG, 2 H, 3 K

Is this really Jason Marquis? After being dependable but oh-so-mediocre in the N.L. Central for all those years, Marquis seems to have found a career rejuvanation center in the unlikeliest of places: Coors Field.

Marquis has been filthy the entire first half and should find himself in St. Louis for the All-Star game. His numbers speak for themselves: 10 wins, a sub-4 ERA, a respectable 1.3 WHIP.

What's more telling, though, is that Marquis is only owned in 27 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues. His strikeout to walk numbers aren't good. He has to fall apart at some point, right?

Hitting

1B Albert Pujols - Cardinals
Vs. Giants
2-3, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 R, BB

Why should I waste time telling you how great Pujols is when Kevin Kaduk from Big League Stew did it so well in the first place? Read that post and appreciate that you get to watch one of the best hitters ever. Even if he does play for your favorite team's biggest rival.
