The tater trots for April 14: Todd Helton's slows down in San Diego; Austin Jackson and Hunter Pence have a footrace.

A prediction for today's games: a home run will be hit by number 42.

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 6/12/12

3

Michael Street

Michael sweeps four VPs off the list while bringing in two Rockies and two hot-hitting first base call-ups.

Being a fantasy owner requires balancing three P’s: production, playing time, and the patience to see if a hitter will improve the former after an increase in the latter. This week, I’m losing my patience with two hitters while sticking by another one who’s about to get more playing time. Owners without my patience can find other options in another set of P’s—the Playing Pepper section—but you can find some fantasy value in any of this week’s players, which is our goal here at Value Picks.

The tater trots for April 29: Helton's pinch hit salami, Figgins' second leadoff homer, and Stanton finally clears the fences.

How has Bryce Harper not hit a home run yet? It's been two days! I want to see his major league trot. I guess we can just safely write him off as a bust then, huh? So sad.

The tater trots for April 20: two inside-the-park home runs, plus an invalid trot from David Ortiz!

What do you do when two different players each hit an inside-the-park home run on the same night? Normally, one is good enough for Home Run of the Day, but how do you choose? And what if they both come on a once-in-a-century day where two storied teams are wearing fantastic uniforms from generations past while celebrating the birthday of a park like Fenway? Especially when there are six different home runs in that game? And let's not forget a pair of home runs from last year's sad sack story Adam Dunn, or home run number 631(good enough for fifth all-time) from Alex Rodriguez?

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 4/16/12

Michael Street

Michael graduates his first VP of the season, but he still points out plenty of undervalued corner infielders to be found on your league’s waiver wires.

For our nation’s scholars, graduation is just around the corner, but we start things early here at Value Picks, bidding adieu to our first departee. He leaves the list after quickly exceeding ownership thresholds, but I’ve got lots of other players ready to prove themselves to VP readers, including several bubble candidates in Playing Pepper.

Western Front: Perpetually Rebuilding the Padres

14

Geoff Young

Padres fans have constant reminders of past failures and rebuilds as their team attempts to field a winner.

When Padres Vice Chairman & CEO Jeff Moorad recently tried to accelerate full transfer of ownership from John Moores to Moorad's group, the other MLB owners balked; Commissioner Bud Selig cited a need for “more clarity and technical information.” Moorad and his partners, who previously owned the Arizona Diamondbacks, purchased the Padres in February 2009. They were given “as long as five years to buy out the controlling interest” from Moores, who had owned the Padres since December 1994.

The two chief causes of this setback appear to be that:

The tater trots for August 8: late-inning heroics from Casey Kotchman; Todd Helton & David Ortiz continue their "race".

Things tend to chill out a bit on Mondays, and yesterday seemed to follow the trend. There was only one multi-home run day and not a single player hit his first career home run. You see? Boring. Well, except maybe for the seven home runs in the Rockies/Reds game in Cincinnati or the lovely trots from David Ortiz and Todd Helton or the walkoff home run or...

The tater trots for August 3. Casey McGehee had a great day, in more ways than one.

Wednesday was yet another big afternoon for home runs, with 35 hit across the league. The dog days of August are already here (and it's only August 4!). There were only three multi-home run days on Wednesday, though one of them was a three homer day from Casey McGehee.

The tater trots for April 26: a big day for multi-home run days. Now including a list of all tater trot times for the day.

There were five different players across the league on Tuesday who went home after the game celebrating a multi-home run day. It generally feels rare just seeing one person with two home runs in a game, so seeing five on the same night is pretty impressive. It's just one of those weird, random occurrences, I guess. Unless, of course, pitchers from San Diego, Texas, Chicago, Kanas City and New York all conspired together to make it a night we wouldn't forget. Sounds plausible.
