MLB Fantasy Wake Up Call - July 28

Players of the night

Pitching

Tim Lincecum - Giants
Vs. Pirates
CG, 4 H, 0 ER, 15 K

No hitters and perfect games aside, you won't see a more dominant pitching performance this season than what the reigning NL Cy Young award winner turned in last night. In fact, maybe Lincecum was even more dominant than those who's have thrown no-no's: by K'ing 15, he basically took luck out of the equation.

I am sure, however, that playing the lowly Pirates had something to do with it.

Could another Cy Young be on the way? He's fourth in the NL in ERA - and trailing the leaders by very little. At 11-3, he has the win numbers that so many covet. Lincecum leads the NL in strikeouts, too - and it's not even close.

More, after the jump...

Hitting

LF Josh Willingham - Nationals
@ Brewers
3-5, 2 HR, 8 RBI, 2 R

Josh Willingham is on fire, people. After appearing in this spot less than a week ago, he's back again. Basically, if you have him on your bench (like I did last night), put him in the starting lineup, like, immediately.
