Rays Studs Of June

Joaquin Benoit – Benoit has pretty much been lights out for the Rays since being called up.  He is a dominant strikeout pitcher who could easily close for the Rays next year if Soriano walks.  It’s unfortunate we can’t score any runs right now because Benoit and Soriano are as good of an 8th and 9th inning combo as there is in the league.

David Price – While most of the starting staff has been downright awful this month, Price has continue to be a Cy Young caliber pitcher.  He’s still keeping that K/BB ratio down, and continues to improve his strikeout numbers.  He should be the SP in the All Star Game in a couple weeks.

Sean Rodriguez – It’s really hard to put a guy with a sub .800 OPS on a studs list, but June was the month where we started to see the potential that Rodriguez showed in the Spring.  His inclusion on this months list is more of a reflection of that potential starting to be fulfilled.

Carl Crawford – Carl continues to  put up MVP caliber numbers.  Right now he is on pace for 37 2 baggers, 13 3b, 15 HR, 82 RBI and 58 SB with under 100k’s.  He’s just been phenomenal and consistent, hence his name gracing the studs list for two months in a row.
