I won another week! 7-5 over
ShellieShellyShelleyMichelleJason’sGirlfriend Jason’s Female Companion (I do not want to say girlfriend because that might be some kind of anti-feminist jargon). Anyways, the impressive thing to me is that during my preview of the season, I had her team as dominating pitching stats, but I pretty much dominated her. She beat me in K’s and WHIP (her WHIP was .97, hard to beat that, mine was 1.05). I racked up 8 wins and 4 saves with a 2.77 ERA, very nice!
Hitting was not a strong suit for me. They hit .235/.285 with four HRs. Ugh. I did manage to win RBIs and SBs. I had some terrible hitting from some guys, especially Stubbs, Brantley, and Stanton. I did get Ryan Zimmerman back, so that was a positive. My big hitter was Ryan Braun.
The player I want to focus on though was Justin Verlander. He was absolutely dominant: 2 Wins, 17 Ks, .50 ERA, .39 WHIP. He almost threw a no-hitter. That trade definitely worked out for me.
I am still in 10th place and I need to win a few more weeks by more than two. Hopefully things can continue to go my way for a bit. I take on Gideon this week. I hope I can win.
