Line of the Day: May 10th, 2011

1B Adrian Gonzalez of the Boston Red Sox went 3-for-6 with two home runs, including a game-tying one in the the top of the 9th inning, in the Red Sox 7-6 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the 11th multi-homer game of Gonzalez's career.

Line: 6 AB, 2 R, 3 H, 3 RBI; 2 HR

My fantasy perspective: Gonzalez has hit in 20 of his last 22 games with 11 multi-hit games during that span and raised his average from .244 to .324. Add in a .375 OBP and .541 SLG with a lowered K% (16.9% vs 20.7% career) and he could be looking at another monster (no pun intended) season. He leads all first basemen with 48 hits, 19 extra-base hits and 80 total bases. The only concerns so far are an elevated BABIP of .359 (career .312 BABIP) and low BB% (6.9% vs 11.2% career).
