Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a splash hit Wednesday for his fifth homer of the year.

Crawford is hitting his usual .250ish, but now has more homers this year than he did in 2012 and more than half of his 2013 total of nine in 499 at-bats. It's too bad he's not a basestealer at all; that's what really limits him as a fantasy shortstop.
