Holy shit! I finally won, the first time since week five. Granted, I only won 7-5, but a win is a win. I beat Jason/Nick’s team. I realize this does not mean my team is ready to start knocking down the door for first place, but it just feels good.
My hitting was good, 46 Runs, 14 HRs, 45 RBIs, 5 SB. My AVG/OBP were low though, .263/.348. I had some very good players this week: Ryan Braun, Michael Brantley, Drew Stubbs, and the amazing David Ortiz (8 Runs, 4 HRs, 13 RBIs, .320/.414). This week though, the honor goes out to Mike Moustakas, the newly promoted Kansas City Royal 3B, who also hit his first HR this week. Oh, and i picked him up.
My pitching was decent, I took wins, saves, and WHIP. I should have taken ERA, but my weekend was kind of scary. Drew Storen and Justin Verlander were my pitching studs (okay, Jon Lester was pretty good too). Storen had 4 saves and a 0.00 ERA/.80 WHIP. Verlander had 1 Win, 10 Ks, 1.13/.75.
I need two good weeks and I could make my way back to .500. It is a slow process, but I know this team is good enough to do it. The bastards just need to get their heads out of their asses.
