How does a guy without any hitting manage to win again? Oh, dominant pitching. Suck it Ryan! I have no mission this year, but to make sure you do not win.
My best player was Matt Kemp again. The dude is ridiculous: 7 Runs/4 HRs/8 RBIs/.545 AVG/.615 OBP. Yeah, he is pretty good. Aside from him I only had one player hit over .300 for the week: Mike Moustakas. And then, I only had one guy hit over .250: Alex Presley. Yep, I have a great hitting team.
Pitching-wise, my team was led by a middle reliever. Jonny Venters had 1 Win/6 Ks/3 Holds/0.00 ERA/1.36 WHIP. My best starter was CJ Wilson, who is every bit as good as advertised. He had 2 Wins/7 Ks/1.38 ERA/1.15 WHIP. Ogando also had a good week, he had a save and three holds, but only four strikeouts.
I ended up picking up Ross Detwiler during the week. Whenever Allen Craig comes off the DL, I will probably drop Gordon Beckham. I am also thinking about getting rid of John Mayberry or David Murphy and picking up another starter. Or maybe trading someone for a solid hitter.
Does anyone else feel like the hitting in the league is way down this year? It could be too early to think about, but something worth looking into.
I am now 16-7-1 and in second place in my division (third place overall). I take on Offord this week. We always have a fun battle.
