A few housecleaning issues-
1. I received an e-mail from New Linc re: placing people on the injured list and co-commissioner T-Dub and I have decided to raise the roster limit to 27 (allowed two players to be on the injured list and having the ability to pick up two replacements for said injured players). Keep in mind, this doesn't allow you to just pick up two players (as the limit for reserve players is not being raised). The reasoning is it may cause a manager not to put a player on the injured list and picking up a free agent which, in turn, does two things 1. allow to manager's team to compete at the level they would like and 2. spend money on free agent pickups to replace the injured player. So it will cost no money to place a player on the injured list. But if you decide to place someone on the injured list and pick up a free agent to replace him, it will cost you $0.50 to add and $0.50 to drop (when the injured players comes off the injured list).
2. T-Dub sent me an e-mail re: max number of starts your pitching staff can acrue in one period. T-Dub is correct, the maximum number of starts is 7 and minimum number of starts is 5. Last week, Client #9 had 8 starts and this week Year2000! has 8 starts. I am not going to penalize teams yet but as of next week, you will be penalized for going over (or under) the limit.
Now, the scores...
Clark & Addison-3
And amazing power onslaught ended with the Gorilla's (23 total home runs between the two teams)coming out on top. Pitching certainly decided this, with the Gorilla's going 4-0-1 in those categories.
Ger, your 15 minutes is up, time to vacate the PG East throne. Good win though, the SwinGERS still impress with their hitting. Rocky Mike still waiting for a win, need to get those bats going.
New Linc carries the day, with a power surge being the deciding factor. Carlos Quentin's 5 homers and 9 RBI are indicative of the type of production the Longhorns threw up. The Daddy's need more Raul Ibanez and less Curtis Granderson.
Big win by 3K, and I mean big. Despite the very close score, the win gives 3K the confidence boost he needed. Hey 3K, looks like you drafted the Wang pitcher (hey oh!!). Keep ya head up, Hackman. A .500 overall record is nothing to be ashamed of.
Fenway Ed simply threw Yankee Mike a beating this week. Stellar pitching from Johan and Halladay lead Fenway Ed to a 2.82 ERA. Yankee Mike's hitting is fine, he simply needs more power production.
Baby Bisho's master plan for fantasy domination came together this week as #9 won decisively against the Cobras (with perhaps too much pitching from Baby Bisho). Notable is Client #9's whopping 13 stolen bases (with 6 alone from Ian Kinsler). Who would have ever thought Zach Grienke would bounce back from depression and become one of the game's best pitchers?
This week's matchup's-
Baby Gorillas at The SwinGERS
The Rockpile at Jimmy's Daddy
Year2000! at ARodsACyssy
Client #9 at CO Yankees
Hoosier Heat at Tallcorn Cobras
Lawndale Longhorns at Clark & Addison
The battle of PG East commences...let's do this, Ger.
