Will Cincy Ever Win Again, Part Two

Taking the weekend off proved to be a huge lucky twist of fate. Saturday was a completely backwards adventure, and not capping/playing probably saved a few units on the Fantasy Roundup. On that note, we're coming off a 4-1 Friday, a 13-4 week (4-0 Sat, 1-1-1 Tues, 3-2 Wed, 1-0 Thurs, 4-1 Fri), and a 28-13-1 post-All Star Break record, so things are going well. Hopefully, we can get right back into the swing of things after a couple days off and pick up where we left off.

NL
Nyjer Morgan
- Morgan was 6-for-14 off Charlie Morton in the Minors, so he won't be surprised by the righty's incredible movement.
Andrew McCutchen - Another face-off in the Minors, McCutchen was 3-for-10 off Garrett Mock in seasons past with a home run.
Aramis Ramirez - Supposedly returning to the starting lineup tonight, Ramirez is batting .326 in 46 AB against Aaron Harang with 4 homers
Mike Fontenot and Ryan Theriot - The Cubs middle infielders are hitting .333 (5-for-15, 1 homer), and .303 (10-for-33), respectively, against Harang, who lost to the Cubs just over a week ago.
Kosuke Fukudome - In limited action, Fukudome is batting .385 off Harang -- also of note, Derrek Lee has 5 home runs in his career against Harang, though his BAA is in the mid-200's.
Clayton Kershaw - Kershaw has been darn near unhittable over the last 2 months. His ERA at home is under 2, he already held Milwaukee to a run over 6 innings earlier this season, and he's 5-0 in his last 9 starts with an earned run average of 0.79.

AL
David DeJesus
- 5-for-15 off Scott Kazmir, in a strange matchup that makes Zack Greinke an underdog. Man, the Royals are just terrible.
Justin Verlander - An ERA of 1.15 at home, my heavens.
Hank Blalock - 4-for-4 against Brett Anderson so far this season, with a home run.
Michael Young - Almost as impressive as his teammate, Young is 4-for-5 off Anderson, who has given up 7 earned runs in 9 innings against Texas so far this season.
Jack Cust - Cust is a solid 7-for-14 career off Dustin Nippert. Almost as astounding as his average is the mere fact that Cust has seen Nippert 14 times. Hah!
