Well, I pubbed these on Monday, but they’re good for today. First, I took a look at Andre Ethier, whose season has confounded many fantasy players this year. He was also in the news for admitting that he’s been playing through pain in his right knee. Basically, I think we expected too much of him. He’s a .290 hitter with 20-homer power. That’s okay! And his knee might be irrelevant!
I also took a look that the evolution of Jason Motte. He’s basically taking over as the closer in St. Louis, and has a new pitch to thank.
