Another day, another huge game by Vladimir Guerrero; who took Camden Yards by storm on Friday night as I drove out ot New Jersey for the weekend.
This was the first day he was on my roster in my fantasy keeper league. He began the night with a two-run shot to put the Blue Jays up 2-0. Then, he ripped a bullet double down the line. Finally, he finished things off with a monster solo home run, his 13th of the season.
As bad as things seemed – and with all the off days – Vlad Jr. can still put up some absolutely huge numbers. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that he finishes this season with an average just below .300, 20 home runs and 80 RBI with a big finish.
Right now, every at-bat is must see television if you’re a baseball fan. He’s absolutely looking as advertised for a bad team with little threat around him in the lineup as protection. It should be noted that the youngster hit in the three-hole tonight, a spot that they should just leave him alone in for oh; the next 15 or so years.
