Fantasy Baseball Stock Market Report: Santana UP, Joyce DOWN, and more

As we approach July, the outlook for some players is rising while the outlook for others is falling. Let’s analyze whose stock is on the upswing and whose is on the downswing in this week’s Fantasy Baseball Stock Market Report.

Stock Up

Danny Espinosa – 2B – WASH

Over the last 15 days, Danny is 19-54, with 4 home runs, and 3 stolen bases. Don’t be surprised if he goes 25/20.  He’s almost half way there with 14 HR’s and 9 SB’s.  His average will hurt your team a little bit, but  his combination of power and speed as a middle infielder will help your team win.

Carlos Santana – C/1B – CLE

In the past week, Carlos has hit .353 with 2 home runs, and 1 stolen base.  He also has 10 home runs, and 33 RBI’s on the year, and is still capable of hitting 20-25 home runs this season.  By moving him out of the clean up spot for a couple of days, Carlos was able to regain his confidence and has started to show improvement in his game.

Alcides Escobar – SS – KC

Alcides is 19-45 over the past 15 days, batting .422 with 5 stolen bases.  He continues to rake so use him as your second MI and enjoy his OPS right now.  Looks like Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer are getting pitched around and other players in the lineup are enjoying the benefits of the fastballs like Escobar.

Carlos Gonzalez – OF – COL

Mr. Fantasy Baseball 2010 started off slow batting out of the 3 hole, but is starting to heat up after being moved into the leadoff spot.   Over the last week, Carlos is  9-23, 2 HR, 2 SB, .391.  Look for Carlos Gonzalez to continue to hit well and still put up 25/25 on the year, if not 30/30.

Stock Down

Matt Joyce – OF – TB

Looks like someone isn’t drinking the Sam Fuld Kool-Aid anymore.  After a hot start, Matt is in the midst of a  4-32 hitting slump over the past 15 days while batting a measly .125 with no home runs and only 2 RBI’s.  Hopefully you sold high on him a couple of weeks ago as his average will level off as the season progresses.  Look for him to continue to sit when he faces left-handed starters.

Justin Morneau – 1B – MIN

Remember when he was out most of last year with a concussion?  If it’s not one thing, than it’s another.  Now it’s a nerve in his neck, and he looks to be out for 6-8 weeks.  He’s been only batting .225 on the year with only 4 home runs after 213 plate appearances.  He’s safe to cut in most leagues since there are so many other first place options.

Rajai Davis – OF – TOR

Rajai continues to struggle, batting .231 on the year with 18 stolen bases.  He’s also  in a huge hitting slump going 4-37 with 0 stolen bases and a .108 average over the last 15 days.  Look for him to get more at bats with Jose Bautista moving to 3rd base and break out of his slump, instead of splitting time in the outfield.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
