  • Ahhhh, Dusty!

    Matt Murton (OF) CHI-N - Sep. 14

    Murton went 3-for-5 Tuesday to extend his hitting streak to six games, including
    a second-inning triple that keyed an important two-run inning, the Chicago Sun-Times

    ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: "I've had my eyes open already about Murton," manager Dusty
    Baker said. "I just don't jump on bandwagons. He's played outstanding. He's hitting
    the ball hard and running the bases. I believe, unless you have a superstar like
    Miguel Cabrera, that you get young players in against guys they can have success
    against to build their confidence. This young man is performing well. He works hard
    and he's a smart player." Note how Baker is taking credit for Murton's success by
    suggesting it's all about who he's been matched up against - rather than admitting
    the Cubs never should have traded for Matt Lawton or played Todd Hollandsworth as
    much as they did. In any event, Murton should see regular at-bats down the stretch
    and is worth a look in keeper leagues.[/b][/quote]
