With 22 homers and 22 steals to go along with a .327 average, it was hard not to put Matt Kemp as my top outfielder for July. Ryan Braun is literally a hair behind him though. Carl Crawford should be back after the All-Star break and I suspect he’s going to break out soon. Jay Bruce at 15 may raise a few eyebrows, but I think he’s ready to put his bad month of June behind him and light it up in July (and the rest of the season). Nick Markakis has been hot recently, but just remember with his nice average you’ll get next to no power. I may have Jayson Werth at 27 too high right now. To be honest, with every day that passes the more I think he’s destined for a bad year. I have hope, but I’m losing confidence. I think Colby Rasmus will be turning it up very soon… Brennan Boesch has been a pleasant surprise again this season. Remember how hot he started when he got called up last season? He’s going to cool down.

    Looks good but I wouldn’t have ranked bj upton that high though.

    I need to pick an OF and utility for this week. Options: Mark Reynold, bj Upton, Swisher, Rasmus, and Werth. What do you think? Thanks!

    • If you’re looking for the hottest hitter you’d have to go with Reynolds, surprisingly. Rest assured though, it won’t last. If you want the best option for the rest of the year I’d go with Upton or Rasmus. As long as you can withstand the low AVG. of Upton, he will help in HR and SB. Rasmus can help you all around once he turns it up. I think that will be very soon.

        Thanks. I also emailed you my questions as I didn’t think this had gone through. Apologies for the duplicate queries.
