2014 Fantasy Baseball Week Nine

I am not too upset with my results this week considering everything that was going on.  I tried my best to set my lineup everyday, but it was hard to look at results and see if I wanted to add or drop anyone.

My hitting was pretty good.  I mean, 11 HRs in a week is always a nice thing.  Normally 6 SBs would win that one for the week, but Don has plenty of guys who can swipe a bag here and there.  Hanley Ramirez was my best hitter by far (4/2/6/1/.545/.583).  That is the Ramirez that I traded for and hopefully this is the beginning of him going back to super-stud level.  I also had a few other really good hitters:  George Springer (9/3/7/0/.321/.424), Yasiel Puig (5/1/2/0/.333/.429), Xander Bogaerts (7/0/2/0/.367/.457), Devin Mesoraco (3 HRs), and Jose Altuve (3 SBs).

Obviously my pitching was a different story.  Last week I did not start Adam Wainwright twice and he was phenomenal.  This week I start him and he gets crushed.  Corey Kluber had a nice week yet again, picking up a win and twelve strikeouts.  I missed Zack Wheeler’s start, which would have given me the win for Wins and Strikeouts, but that would not have helped me escape a loss for the week.

The loss this week dropped me back to second place behind Pat.  In the other division, Gideon overtook Ryan for third place and is only a half game behind me.  My record is now 63-40-5.  I take on Pat this week, which could be the biggest matchup of the season so far.  Good luck Pat!

Lindsey destroyed her opponent 10-1-1.  She is now 51-51-6.  Finally at .500 and in seventh place.  The War Puigs are marching!
