h2h Corner ~ Katy Perry (Hot ‘N’ Cold Fantasy Baseball) All-Stars

Players get hot and cold over a seven-day period, it’s as sure as the samples are small.

That is why Katy created the Hot ‘N’ Cold All-stars.

Cause you’re hot…you’re yes…you’re in…you’re up

Juan Rivera – Rivera has been the River of Dreams for my NL-only team with Gaby Sanchez batting like Gabrielle Reece. Over the last seven days, he is 9/25 with two homers and 10 RBIs. While he is batting an unimpressive .264 over his last 30 days, he has an impressive 25 RBIs. One’s place in the lineup usually isn’t important – however, with marginal guys like Rivera, batting clean-up can lead to a lot of RBIs he doesn’t really deserve. It’s a flawed stat, exploit it!

Jason Kipnis – In case you missed it, Kipnis came off the DL with a bang, pow! Over the last seven days, he is 9/26 with a homer and two steals. He is now 33/113 with seven homers and four steals in the majors. With Brett Lawrie going down, Kipnis is the premier young batsman to own down the stretch. Grab him!

Allen Craig – Craig’s season-long battle for playing time has finally been realized in the form of Matt Holliday’s untimely injury. Craig has taken the opportunity and beaten it: 8/29 with three homers over the last seven days. He is a must add in almost any format – certainly leagues that run 12 deep. He’s a great addition over most second basemen at this point.

Travis Hafner – A healthy Hafner is a good Hafner. Over the last seven days, he’s been a mashing heifer: 6/18 with two dingers. He has now hit safely in seven of the eight games he has appeared in since coming off the DL. If you were plugging holes with Mike Carp or Mark Trumbo, Hafner should be a better option.
