You know you are having a bad season when you go 10-1-1 and that does not bump you up the standings at all. I am still in sixth place, but at least now I am closer to passing Gideon. The rough thing is having to root for Ryan/Offord in order for me to have a better week.
You know it is a good week when Jason Heyward can go 4/4 with 2 home runs and you have him on the bench. Austin Jackson also came back to life this week, six runs, .387 average, .406 OBP. And he hit a home run, which is rare for him.
The only negative spot came from my pitching not getting wins. I only picked up two, which they came from the guys who pitched twice. Oddly enough though, they both pitched great, but only picked up one win each. I am going to have to give up on Edinson Volquez though, he had a terrible this week and then yesterday he got destroyed. So it is time to cut him lose.
This week I take on Offord. I need Ryan and Pat to destroy their opponents (Happy Valley Swagger and Gideon respectively), so good luck to those guys as well.
