HOT or NOT - 7/27/10 edition

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Hm, wonder who's gonna be on each list...not as if I've been hinting at it all week. HOT Jason Heyward: .538/.613/.615, 7 R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, 5 BB, 5 K, 2/3 SB He's back, and he's back with a vengeance. The Braves need this guy in the lineup performing at the level he did in April and May if they want to make a deep run into October. The alphabet soup of outfielders that went on with him and Nate McLouth both out did nothing to help the team, and they kept their head above water. A healthy Heyward means that the team SHOULD be able to make a push and gain some distance in the tight NL East race. Alex Gonzalez: .370/.414/.556, 2 R, 3 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 4 K The ASG acquisition for the Braves isn't tearing the cover off the ball like Yunel Escobar is in Toronto, but he sure as hell is hitting a lot better than Escobar was while he was a Brave. Gonzalez has also been solid defensively, and hasn't many any lapses like Escobar was prone to do...this, I could get used to. Jonny Venters: 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 4 H, 2 BB, 5 K He's been lights out this year. Lights. Out. There's bound to be a little bit of regression here, but you know what...I'm gonna roll with this right now. NOT Billy Wagner: 0-1, 10.13 ERA, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, 2 K Like Venters is bound for regression, Wagner also was, and suffered his bout of it this week, blowing a pair of saves that would have been really nice to have right about now. He'll be fine, just a bump in the road...every closer runs into them. Nate McLouth: .067/.067/.067, 2 R, 2 K McLouth was jettisoned off the team today, being sent to Gwinnett to hopefully learn how to hit like a multimillion dollar player is supposed to. He had a crappy week, just adding to his crappy season. If it wasn't for that walkoff against Philly in May...yeah. It would truly be a forgettable season for Nate. Troy Glaus: .143/.321/.238, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 5 BB, 4 K Glaus was never a guy to hit for a high average...but yeah. More than 3 hits in a week would be a good example to set for your teammates, Troy. He was red hot in May and the team began to take off...he needs to heat up in a hurry. He's hitting .226 over the last 2 months with an OPS in the .600 range. Yeah...
