IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES THIS HAPPEN? I LOSE TO LINDSEY???? SERIOUSLY, HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? THE FANTASY BASEBALL GODS HAVE TURNED AGAINST ME! THE END IS NEAR! I MAY HAVE TO QUIT FANTASY SPORTS FOR GOOD.
Okay, I think I am done freaking out. Good for her on beating me. I am happy that her team has managed to make a bit of a comeback. And my team is starting to go down in flames. So many guys have minor injuries, like not being on the DL, but missing games all week. Eric Hosmer, Yasiel Puig, and Hanley Ramirez all missed time. That is not helping me out. Especially when it seemed like Hosmer and H-Ram could have been poised to heat up.
Also, how can a team have 13 holds in one week and the next only pick up one? That does not even make sense. At least my starting pitching was fantastic. Everyone pitched remarkably well. You know your starters are good when the worst week is Adam Wainwright because his ERA was 3.09. Greinke, Kluber, and Duffy all managed to pitch shutouts (well not complete game shutouts, but they did not give up a run).
I really need some help in the closer department. Steve Cishek had all five saves. I cannot rely on one guy to do all the work. Especially if the other guys are not picking up holds. That is just a rough week.
I am still leading my division with a record of 100-82-10. Fortunately for me, Pat also lost so he stays three games behind. Overall, I am still in third place and 12.5 games back of first. Gideon holds the top spot with Ryan now 3.5 games behind. This week I take on Stallions, who is in 11th place. I need one of those big wins.
Lindsey is 86-93-13 and still in 7th place. She takes on Ryan this week and I need her to crush him. Please my dearest, make Ryan look like a fool…
