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.
