The Players of Week Four:
Ben Zobrist (8/3/15/3/.480): No surprise here, as he had one of the best single days (a double-header) in fantasy history, which accounted for two-thirds of both his home run and RBI totals. Fortunately for those who own him, unlike in real baseball, two great games can make for a great week.
Placido Polanco (6/0/4/0/.500): I have to give a shout out to my man Placido, one of the best and most underrated hitters in the game. Now in his 14th season, he is a career .304 hitter with an AB/K rate of 14/1. He may be lacking in the power and speed departments, but a 12-for-24 week earns him a spot on this list.
Juan Rivera (3/2/6/1/.423): And to think, exactly one week ago today, Rotobrian and I were bad-mouthing this guy about what a disappointing career he has had. He may end up being a very capable (and much cheaper) replacement for Vernon Wells in Toronto.
