T.I.P.S. tabs Rays' Upton, White Sox' Danks for big second halves
Many expected Upton's power to reach his 2007 when he hit 24 homers and drove in 82 runs. His HR/FB percentage was at 19.8, far higher than his career 11.4 average. This suggests that he is more of a 15-homer player than a 30-homer one that has been predicted of him.
Upton is still one of the most complete fantasy options out there, regardless of the general difference of opinion concerning his power. Most people picked him up in the late-first, early-second round of drafts, and I think he will finish as a Top 15 hitter.

It's pretty easy to take a look at Cook's stats and rationalize a reason to have him on your roster. In the last month he's 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. Pretty good, right? Yeah, it is. It's really good. I just have no faith that he can continue this. Let me explain. He doesn't strike anyone out. On the year he's struck out more than four batters in a start just twice. Last season Cook had a 3.57 pre-All Star break ERA, only to follow that up with a 4.71 ERA after the break. While the stigma of pitching in Coors Field has lessened a bit, I still don't trust him.
