Justin Upton has continued his hot season by hitting another long ball yesterday. Upton's average HR is traveling 427.4 feet. Thats the longest average for any player in MLB with 5 HR's or more. His longest HR this season was his Grand Slam which traveled 461 feet. Last year he had a total of 5 HR's that went 420 feet or more. Is it time we start talking about PED's?

On Friday April 12th Bryce Harper hit his 5th HR of the season. He's the 2nd player age 20 or younger with 5+ HR's in his teams first 10 games. Last years triple crown winner Miguel Cabrera was the other player to accomplish this in 2004. Thats good company to have for Mr Harper
On Wednesday April 10th The NY Mets broke a franchise record by hitting a HR in 9 consecutive games to start a season. The power coming from this lineup is what we expect from the Bronx Bombers but not The Metropolitans. Fans are hoping that this will continue as the emergence of Matt Harvey has the Pitching staff looking strong.

Justin Upton belted 2 HR's for the Braves yesterday raising his HR total to 5 for the year which leads MLB. He has homered in 4 out of 5 games this year and looks to be fitting in nicely with the National League. He was selected by 15 teams in the Derby and shows up quite a few times in our top 10.
