HOT or NOT - 8/16/10 edition

Written by Joe Lucia on .

After a 5-2 week, there have to be some guys on either side of this list...right? HOT Brooks Conrad: .278/.350/.611, 5 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 2 BB, 3 K Solid week from this week's starting third baseman...Conrad will likely fall back to his role on the bench when Martin Prado is activated off the DL this week. Regardless, it was a great performance. Jair Jurrjens: 1-0, 1.26 ERA, 12 H, 2 BB, 10 K Jurrjens only got the one win this week due to being left in for the 8th in the middle game of the Houston series, but I'll be damned if he didn't pitch his brains out. Both of the earned runs he allowed came in his final inning of work in each start. Now THATS efficiency. Tim Hudson: 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 3 H, 1 BB, 6 K This one is by default more than anything else since no one else really jumped out at me on offense. Hudson had one hell of a start on Friday, and has now won 5 straight starts, allowing only a pair of runs in those 5 starts. Talk about dominant. NOT Eric Hinske: .091/.231/.091, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 4 K People clamoring for Hinske to be starting *every day* should maybe take a look at his recent performance...he's not exactly lighting up the box scores. He's going to need to kick things up to another level if the Braves want to contend this September. Rick Ankiel: .143/.368/.143, 5 BB, 5 K, 0/1 SB Its really odd that the one thing no one expected Ankiel to do...is what he did best last week. He led the team in walks last weeks, something you would NEVER EVER IN A MILLION YEARS expect Rick Ankiel to do. Unfortunately, he didn't have any extra base hits, which is what he was brought to the team to do. Matt Diaz: .091/.231/.182, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 BB, 6 K Poor little Matty...can't buy himself a base hit. The lefty masher only has an OPS of .881 against southpaws this season...still a really good mark, but not at all what we're all used to out of him. Very disappointing. Weekly Prospect Report will be up before the game ends tonight, with the game recap (obviously) following after the game. Stay tuned...
