Fantasy Baseball Week Seventeen

I was able to avenge my two earlier losses to Dustin by absolutely destroying him this week.  Although, it is sad that I beat him 10-1 and actually lost ground on Ryan.  He beat Gideon 11-1.  Thanks Gideon for not even trying to help me get into first place.

My hitting was pretty good.  In fact, I only had three hitters under .270:  Desmond Jennings, Mark Trumbo, and Pablo Sandoval.  At least they in small ways, Trumbo had three hours, Jennings stole a base, and Sandoval had three RBIs.

My best hitter was Yasiel Puig yet again.  Dude is a machine at this point 5/1/2/0/.412/.545.  After that it was Eric Hosmer and Jose Bautista.  Elvis Andrus must have noticed that I was contemplating replacing him.  He hit .296 and stole three bases.

I am confused as to how I continue to lose strikeouts.  This should not happen.  Lance Lynn was my best starter for the week.  He had two starts and picked up 18 strikeouts and one win with a 1.93 ERA/.79 WHIP.  Adam Wainwright had a crappy week, but I am okay with it since his start was against the Pirates.

Kenley Jensen had an enormous week.  Look at this line 1/3/10/0/0.00/0.00.  I would kill to have starters get ten strikeouts and no hits in only four innings of work!  Also, it must have been closer get a win week since Chris Perez and Joe Nathan each had two wins, Perez also had three saves.  That is a big week for a closer.

This week I take on Sean, who I beat last time 9-3.  Sean is quietly having a nice season.  He is in fourth place overall.  He has been doing it mainly by winning close match-ups.  I must destroy him.  I am pretty sure Offord will be happy if I knock Sean under .500.  Actually, I helped bring Offord just a little bit closer to second place in our division.  Basically it is a tight race for third through eighth.  They are not at all close to catching Ryan and I.
