Happy Mother's Day! If you are a mother reading this, I just wanted to wish you a wonderful day and appreciate all you do. I know I wouldn't who I am without the guidance of my mom. And I know my household would be a disaster without the leadership of my wife and mother of two. OK, so with the important stuff out of the way, let's talk some baseball. With the weather heating up, we are finally seeing some players who were ice cold in April starting to find their groove at the plate. That's right, we are looking at you DJ LeMahieu and Ozzie Albies. Top 5 second basemen entering the season, you left millions of fantasy owners nearly bald as they were pulling out their hair watching you look like Freddie Patak at the plate. Meanwhile, some players who I was hesitant to rank at the start of the season continue to produce, such as Ryan McMahon and Garrett Hampson of the Rockies. I'm still waiting for the bubble to burst, but that is because years of expectations for these two have always left me shaking my head wondering why I kept having them on my teams. Guess the secret for them to produce was for me to finally dump them from my teams. So all you McMahon and Hampson owners, you're welcome. I expect you owners to post kind words about me now. Enough small talk. Let's get to the rankings and discuss who's hot and who's not.
Ozzie Albies lifts a two-run home run to left-center, trimming the Braves' deficit to 10-2 in the top of the 7th inning
