Right Jurr

A huge disappointment that we had to skip a couple days after a 4-0 chim-chimney sweep sweep sweep sweep on Saturday, but hopefully we can pick right up where we left off...20-9 since the All Star break, and easily the best 1.5-week stretch of the season thus far. We have the Fantasy Roundup to thank for finally turning on the handicapping afterburners. Okay, now that I've tooted my horn sufficiently, let's try to find some top performers for the night:

Jair Jurrjens
- Smashed the Marlins earlier this year, giving up just 2 runs (both Hanley Ramirez solo shots) over 7 and change. Jurrjens keeps rolling, and with the Braves bats heating up, this looks like a potential W.
Chipper Jones - Chipper is 9-for-16 career off Ricky Nolasco with 3 homers. Duck and cover.
Hanley Ramirez - Really, the only Marlin with any success against Jurrjens, he's hitting .333 with 3 homers. Jurrjens may want to consider just putting him on base.
David Wright - .333 average in 24 AB against Jason Marquis with 2 long balls - the suddenly hot Mets have a shot to win another.
Kevin Kouzmanoff - A new name for the fantasy roundup, the Kouz is hitting .692 in 13 AB off Bronson Arroyo with 2 homers and 6 RBI. If the Padres can get anyone at all on base, they've got a nice shot of scoring 3-4 off Bronson.
Hunter Pence - Batting a cool .400 in 20 AB against Dempster with 2 dingers.
Jeff Keppinger - I'm trying to dig up some more interesting names, and Keppinger is 6-for-15 off the Dumpster...no power numbers, though.
Derrek Lee - 46 at-bats against Roy Oswalt have produced a .348 average and 3 homers.
Russ Martin - Suddenly powerless, Martin is still 5-for-8 off big, tough righty Adam Wainwright, and his buddy at shortstop...
Rafael Furcal - is 5-for-9, so the Dodgers might get a few scoring chances - can they capitalize?

Jorge Posada
- Posada is 10-for-22 lifetime against Scott Kazmir.
Scott Ka....
