    There's nothing wrong with rejecting trades for outfielder based on the logic that he can't keep up his torrid home run pace. But with two steals Thursday night against the Brewers, Brown now has six on the season, and three over the first six games of June. 

    Brown had two minor leauge seasons with 450-plus platez insists they're stronger than Inter Milan.Theo is confident being over his ankle strain for the September 21 derby."I really want to play in it," he told Sport Mediaset.“It's the first Milan derby that I'll have played in. I'm sure we'll win it e appearances; in both, he stole 20 or more bases. And in his other campaigns, he was on pace to steal at least 25. Brown has pulled a bit of a misdirection on Fantasy players -- while hitting 18 home runs in his first 60 games, he's drawn attentiomer Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says his old club look well placed to end their Premier League title drought.The Spaniard has his own blog where he shares his experiences in Asian football as well as his thoughts on the European leagues.He said: "It n away from the fact that he can hit for average (a .296 minor league batting average) and steal bases. This setstold Liverpool they'll keep up the pressure as they target a third successive Premier league title.City earned a hard-fought 3-1 win away to Everton after league leaders Liverpool beat Sheffield United to keep up their 100% record."We knew Liverpool him up with some interesting trade value -- a Brown owner may think he's selling high on the home run potential, but will likely be underrating average and steals. 

    It's unlikely you get Brown cheap, thanks to his hot start, but you might be able to get him for fair value if his owner isn't considering the gains Brown will make in the non-power categories. If you're in need of some steals, you may actually have a need for the league's leading home-run hitter.

  • VIDEO: Yasiel Puig raises the stakes, hits two homers in second game

    Apparently, two singles and a  on Monday night were just the appetizer. outfielder continued to steal the show in Hollywood with two home runs in his second career game on Tuesday night. The first was a three-run shot to left to tie the sly Gilmour is grateful to the coaching staff for backing him after starring in victory over Everton.For the second time in five days Gilmour showed no nerves on such a big stage, and he explained afterwards why he performs with no fear despite his tecore against the Padres. The second, a line drive to the opposite field, tacked on an insurance run for the Dodgers. Here's the video:

    "Qm proposed a potential takeover offer but it was shrugged off by the Russian, says the Telegraph.There have been rumours that the billionaire businessman was looking to sell since the UK tightened its regulations on visas for wealthy foreign nationalue viva Cuba! Viva Puig!" was the call from Vin Scully, pretty much the only 85-year-old man who could pull off saying that and sounding cool.

    Puig, 22, became the first player in franchise history to have a two-homer game among the first two games of his big-league career. The Dodgers have been around since the dawn of time (actually 1890 under various nicknames and in two locales), but he's the first. He's also the first player in baseball history to have a two-homer game within the first two games of his career from the leadoff spot.

    In his first two big-league games, Puig has gone 5 for 8 with a double, d to defeat West Ham on Saturday.Substitute Alexandre Lacazette's goal 12 minutes from time, which was confirmed by the video assistant referee, lifted the Gunners up to ninth, five points behind Chelsea in fourth.The France forward swept a close-ranthe two homers and five RBI. Los Angeles signed him to a seven-year, $42 million contract last summer.
