What can you say? With the exception of the wins category, this matchup is completely up in the air. Meanwhile I want to punch J.J. Hardy and Chris Young as hard as I possibly can. My guess is Linc feels the same way about Alex Rios.
If you look up the word "anemic" in the dictionary you'll see a picture of Mr. 3000 holding a bat. Meanwhile, Yankee Mike is putting up some pretty decent numbers this week. Jorge Cantu has established himself as a top fantasy threat in this league. As the rest of the league is scrounging for saves, Both 3K and Yankee Mike has a combined 9 saves. Unreal. Unless ARodsACyssy does a complete 180, he'll be the newest cellar dweller in PG West.
Mr. Hackman has a tough road to hoe if he wants to walk away a winner this week. Client #9's pitching staff is coming up, in the words of Paris Hilton, HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE. So far, 5 starts, 5 quality starts, 41 K's, a 1.20 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP. How do you compete with that (much less beat it)? Hoosier Heat can stop the bleeding by swinging those bats. David Wright and Pat Burrell look to be key.
Classic split match. The Daddy's are dominating hitting, while The SwinGERS have the lions share of pitching categories. I always admired Raul Ibanez, and wanted to draft him, but Hef beat me to the punch. Looks like it paid off. The Ger is enjoying Dan Haren's dominance this week, what a shame he can't get that performance from Josh Beckett.
Clark & Addison-4
Looks like pitching and speed is saving Rocky Mike this week, as Clark & Addison continue their offensive onslaught. David Oritz is...wait...he's on the bench. Garret Atkins is simply...oh..wait..he's on the bench too. There are only 3 players in QBF's lineup that are hitting under .300 (and yes, Torri Hunter is one of them). Rocky Mike is getting awesome production out of his staff. The weirdest looking man on the planet, Edinson Volquez, pitched 8 strong for a win. King Felix threw 8 strong for a win. Even Joe Saunders is getting into the act. The key to this week is stolen bases and saves. QBF will live or die by those categories for the next 3 days.
Hey Fenway Ed, your 15 minutes are up. Proceed directly to 3rd place. T-Dub is coming through. This is not only a coronation matchup, it's an absolute message sender. Or, as they say at Fenway...a message senda!!!!! Time to regroup, Year2000! How do you like those apples?
