Back in first place. 69-39-12, which puts me 5.5 games ahead of Offord. I said last week that I would be back with a vengeance, and I definitely took it to Imler, 9-2-1. Ryan climbed his way closer to the pack, now only 9 games back, and only 1 game back from Imler for 4th place.
The two categories I lost were stolen bases and saves. What can you do when Carl Crawford steals 5 bases in one week, not a whole lot apparently. My big player for the week was A-Rod, batting .400, with 16 RBIs, and 4 HR. Orlando Cabrera also had a big week, 13 hits and 8 RBIs. JD Drew finally came around, but I had him on the bench for one of his 3 hit days, but got him for the 2 HRs and 7 RBIs, it’s about damn time he started doing something.
Pitching was nothing to brag about. Zambrano finally had a nice game, but everyone else pitched average, or if they pitched well, they did not get the win. Homer Bailey got a win, but his line was not all that great, but it was against the Indians.
This week I take on Singers Sluggers, who is somewhere toward the bottom of the standings, 8th to be precise. I doubt there will be much to worry about from him, but you never know.
