Top 5 Favorite Players-2011 Update # 3

I didn’t think I was going to be able to post my regular Saturday entry today. (Storms in the area caused power outages.) But here it is:

HEATH BELL
Heath earned another save last night in Houston. That brings his career total to 94 career saves. Heath is still perfect when it comes to saves versus save opportunities. (3 for 3.) Heath is doing great. (The Padres are currently 6-8.)

DEREK JETER
Derek Jeter currently has 2,938 career hits. This puts him 62 hits away from the 3,000 hit mark. Jeter has gotten 5 hits in his past four games. This is a major improvement for Jeter since the start of the season. Jeter’s average is slowly starting to creep up. With a current average of .240. (The Yankees are currently 8-5.)

TIM LINCECUM
Lincecum’s most recent start wasn’t as impresive as his first two. He game up 3 runs and 6 hits over 5.1 innings. This brings his ERA for the season to 1.86. He has still only given up just 1 home run so far this year. (The Giants are currently 7-6.) Check out this great play Tim made in his last start.

ALBERT PUJOLS
Albert Pujols must of read my entry I wrote about him last Saturday, because he has started to get red hot. He has hit 3 home runs in his last 2 games. His average is currently .241. But I’m sure he’ll get it above .300 soon. (The Cardinals are currently 7-7.)

MARIANO RIVERA
What can I say about Mo? I guess I could sum his pitching this year up in one word…..AWESOME. Mo is 6 for 6 is saves versus save opportunities. He is now up to 565 career saves. Just 37 away from passing Trevor Hoffman for the record.

OTHER GENERAL BASEBALL NEWS

  • Josh Hamilton injured his shoulder diving in to home plate on a “stupid” decision to run. He is expected to be out for 6-8 weeks.

  • Yesterday (April 15th) was Jackie Robinson day. Every player on every team wore the number 42 in honor of him. (Mariano Rivera put on the same uni.)

I’m planning on attending at least one Triple-A game sometime this week. So I’ll post a recap(with pictures) on here afterwards.
