The News Kevin Kouzmanoff went 3-for-4 with an RBI on Friday, but the A's were trumped by Tim Lincecum and the Giants 6-2. Our View Kouzmanoff is hitting a respectable .280 this season and has plated 33 runs, but owners likely want more power out of him. He has just six homers and 16 total extra-base hits so far. Improving on his 11 walks would be a step in the right direction as well.

Lincecum gets sixth winPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Tim Lincecum held the A's to two runs over eight innings of a 6-2 win on Friday night. Our View This was Lincecum's most dominant outing since May 15th, but it wasn't even vintage Lincecum. He allowed seven hits, a walk and fanned seven. Still a very good game, but not what owners and fans have come to expect. Looks like he's slowly shaking the rust off and easing out of his slump. He lowered his ERA to 3.12 on the year.
Kubels goes 2-for-3 in winPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Jason Kubel went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Friday's 2-1 win over the Braves. Our View Kubel's 36th RBI came in a two-run seventh inning that erased a 1-0 deficit and eventually gave the Twins a 2-1 victory. The hulking LF/DH is starting to heat up with a four game hitting streak that features five RBI.
Hudson goes the distance in lossPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Tim Hudson was brilliant again on Friday, allowing just two runs through a complete game, but took a tough loss as the Braves fell 2-1 to the Twins. Our View Hudson held the Twins to just seven hits and a walk, but fell to 6-2 due to lack of offense. He fanned just two in the game and won't help in that department (3.96 K/9 coming in), but his 2.43 ERA is too good to ignore. It's too bad his offense ran into a buzz saw in Francisco Liriano on Friday.
A-Rod won't play until TuesdayPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News AOL Fanhouse reports that Alex Rodriguez (hip) will not play until Tuesday at the earliest. Our View The Yankees are still saying that A-Rod won't have to head to the DL, but the injury appears to be getting increasingly serious by the hour. He's been labeled with hip flexor tendinitis, but it's supposed to be unrelated to last year's famous hip injury. We'll see.
Pettitte gets win No. 200 with Yankees (AP)Posted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://us.rd.yahoo.com)
Andy Pettitte got a bunch of hugs from appreciative teammates, and a ball and a big grin from Mariano Rivera. Then his former pitching coach and Yankees great Ron Guidry called with congratulations. This was no ordinary victory. Pettitte threw 7 1-3 sharp innings to become the third player to earn 200 wins with New York, beating his hometown Houston Astros 4-3 on Friday night.
Rangers trust Borbon vs. LHPs nowPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://feeds.cbssports.com)
Rangers OF Julio Borbon made his second straight start against a left-handed pitcher Friday at Milwaukee and extended his hitting streak to nine games, going 1 for 3 to make him 15 for 32 (.469) during that stretch. Borbon, who began the season as a platoon player, has earned manager Ron Washington's trust against left-handed pitchers, according to MLB.com. He will sit in favor of Craig Gentry, however, against left-hander Manny Parra on Saturday. "He's a different kind of left-hander," Washington said. "He throws hard and has a nasty slider. But I'm going to play Borbon against left-handers." Texas Rangers - Ron Washington - Milwaukee - Julio Borbon - Manny Parra
Soria saves 15thPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Joakim Soria tossed a scoreless 11th inning on Friday to pick up his 15th save of the season. Our View Soria made it interesting with a pair of hits in the inning, but ultimately got the job done and gave the Royals a dramatic 6-5 win. He's now 15-of-17 in save opps on the year and owns 30 Ks in 23.2 innings.
Betancourt a one man showPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Yuniesky Betancourt had a huge day Friday, going 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI as the Royals knocked off the Reds 6-5 in 11 innings. Our View Betancourt drove in the game-winning run with a single in the 11th, which was fitting since he pretty was KC's offense on the day. He's now hitting .287 with five homers and 27 RBI this season for the lowly Royals.
Lowe may be done for seasonPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 44 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News According to the Seattle Times, Mark Lowe will likely miss the rest of the season with a back injury. Our View Lowe is expected to have microdiscectomy back surgery on Tuesday and the recovery time involved will likely shelve him for the year. He made just 11 appearances this season, going 1-3 with a 3.48 ERA an 1.55 WHIP.

Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis was scratched from Boston's lineup against Philadelphia on Friday night because of back spasms.
