I feel like offensively, my team produced all of their numbers on Monday or Tuesday and then it was just a matter of holding on to the edge of my seat and wait to see if they could hit anymore after that. The answer was no, they could not. In fact, I have seen a few of my guys get hurt, but not go on the disabled list, which is slightly annoying. Jose Bautista, Eric Hosmer, and Giancarlo Stanton have all missed a large chunk of games due to injury.
My pitching was absolutely phenomenal. Only Dustin’s team came close with pitching stats for the week, he also racked up six wins, but as many saves or holds. He was the only person with more strikeouts, but my ERA/WHIP were better. So yeah, my pitching is doing quite alright.
Leading the way for me was Anibal Sanchez, who had two wins, sixteen strikeouts, 1.93/.93 line. Seriously, something tells me that those predictions about him being much better than Greinke this year were not unfounded. Alexi Ogando, Adam Wainwright, and Lance Lynn also had great weeks. My relievers were much better, especially after I dropped John Axford and picked up Jim Henderson (insert Muppet joke here). I also picked up Kelvin Herrera, who got a win and a save.
So, how did the hitters do? Yet again, Brandon Phillips was my best hitter. His line was 4 R/3 HR/9 RBI/.318/.333. I should probably start to worry if a second baseman is my best hitter, not that there is anything wrong with Phillips, but seriously, he is not going to hit like this all season. My next best player, Jose Altuve hit .333/.370/4 R/1 HR/4 RBI. Great draft pick so far. The rest of my team is pulling a Drew Stubbs…
I am now in sixth place with a 10-13-1 record. I am in third place in the division and this week I take on Imler, who is in second place (in both the league and division). A big win is very needed. Also some moves may need to happen.
