I had to put Dustin Pedroia first because he’s been an absolute freak the past month. In July alone, he batted .411 with 8 home runs. Michael Young is another player that is super hot, though he only had two homers in July. Dan Uggla is batting .311 since July 1. It’s safe to say his slump is over. If you waited it out, he should be paying dividends now.

The player that fell the hardest this month was Danny Espinosa. He’s batting .192 since July 1. He needs to be benched until he snaps out of this extended slump. He will kill your average.

Obviously Rickie Weeks fell 10 spots to number 14. He is on the disabled list with an ankle injury. If the Brewers run away with the NL Central, they won’t rush him back so he is healthy for the playoffs.

    Little low on Cuddyer, little high on Kendrick and zobrist. But otherwise looks about right to me
