Mid-Season Fantasy Awards

Choking Flop and I will destroy your team award

Victor Martinez - This guy was a keeper and drafted in the early rounds and has been a huge flop. He has given teams zero production and is now out another 6 weeks with an injury. Runner up - Travis Hafner

Where the hell did I come from award

Edison Volquez - This guy was the return player in the Josh Hamilton trade and has been nothing short of amazing all year. Up until his last start he had not given up more than 3 ER in a game. Runner up - Cliff Lee

Where are they now award

Andruw Jones - This guy was a top 10 round fantasy player who you could count on to hit 30+ HR's and 100+ RBI's but he got stuck in a platoon in the Dodgers OF and then got hurt and is still on the DL. Runner up - Dontrelle Willis

One Week Wonder Award

Marcus Thames - This guy hit 8 of his 14 HR between June 11th and June 21st. If you had him on your team that week, like I did, then you were very happy. He has yet to do much since then with the return of Gary Sheffield. Runner up - Jay Bruce

What the hell were you thinking

Shawn Chacon - What can I say? You are a sub-par pitcher and not even fantasy worthy but you wanna beat up your GM because they are thinking of trading your crap butt? Nice move! Now good luck getting picked up by another team. Runner up - None

I will carry your fantasy team

Lance Berkman - Wow! Just Wow! 70 Runs, 21 HR's, 66 RBI's, 12 SB's and a .366 avg. "The Big Puma" has not had a bad game all year and his owners are loving him! Runner up - Josh Hamilton
