It was the moment you have all been waiting for: the rematch between Ngewo’s World and Sean’s Ramblings. I won the last match-up and needed a big win to keep myself in the playoff hunt. Needless I gave Sean a smackdown he will not forget! Okay, that is not true, I beat him 8-4.
He beat me in Wins, Ks, Holds, and SBs. How weird is that? The categories I lost were the ones I usually win…Sadly it was a week where Sabathia and Verlander had only won start each. Normally they would pile up the strikeouts and get me a bunch of wins. Also, Drew Stubbs usually gets me stolen bases, but I have not been starting him since he is slumping. Oh well, you cannot win them all I guess, right?
My team hit 11 HRs, and hit .310/.373, pretty awesome. My pitching was also great with a 2.16 ERA/1.08 WHIP. Why can’t they do this every week?
I had some major hitters this week: Ryan Braun, Eric Hosmer, Derek Jeter, and Ryan Zimmerman (amazing that I had seven stolen bases, but still lost that category). My best hitter was Miguel Montero, well that is a toss-up since Braun was pretty awesome too. Just take a look at these numbers.
I am still in 8th place with a record of 89-94-9, but I am slowly making my way back up to at least sixth place. I am taking on Offord this week, he is in 2nd place. Imler is in 7th place, but he is taking on James this week, so you an imagine who I am rooting for…
