Some people view fantasy baseball as a leisure sport. Something to do to pass the time while having your morning coffee. Not here in PG Sportsworld. The following text was sent to T-Dub from Mr. Hackman yesterday- "Jess (Mrs. Hackman) is in labor, what were our final scores".
All I have to say is wow. Talk about dedication to your squad. Well done, Mr. Hackman, you have earned our Miller Lite Quote of the Day. Hope all is well with the wife (and new baby). Congrats!!

Andy Pettite turns in a clutch performance last night to tie the game for the Baby Gorillas (lowering the team ERA to 3.55 for the category win). If only he would have had two more strikeouts, the Gorilla's would be tasting victory this morning.
Fairly close matchup here, as Rocky Mike continues to hover in playoff territory. The SwinGERS are showing power, but they need to button up that pitching staff. The Zambrano injury certainly complicates things.
Some people comes out of the gates guns ablazin, some hang with the pack and flex their muscle down the stetch. Jimmy's Daddy would be the latter. A weekend of offensive dominance firmly places the Daddy's atop PG East by 15 and a half games, while the Lawndale Longhorns attempt to do their best Boston Red Sox Choke Artist impression.
A very interesting matchup. Very rarely do you see 3 tied categories by weeks end. And make no mistake about it, this contest was as close as you can possibly get (with the exception of stolen bases and saves). The ERA category was 3.5474 to 3.5438. The batting average category was .2679 to .266. It's a tough pill to swallow for 3K, losses like this are hard to recover from. Meanwhile, Mr. Hackman is sitting in a hospital somewhere in Indiana explaining to his brand spanking new child that he won a nailbiter.
Tough week for Fenway Ed. First, Big Pop Out managed to make Alex Rodriguez look like a stand-up guy, with that embarrassing press conference that was deluged with slimy lawyer-speak and excuses cloaked in shades of gray. Then, he is absolutely MANHANDLED offensively by Yankee Mike and the CO Yankees. Brooklyn took New England and give it the old Patrick Kane FIST TO THE FACE. THEN, to add insult to injury, the New York Yankees ABSOLUTELY MANHANDLED the Boston Red Sox. Unlike the overrated and outclassed Boston Red Sox pitching staff, Year 2000! managed to win the lions share of the pitching categories(a silver lining in a cloud of suckiness). As the tattered and ragtag group of mopes from Boston put their tail between their legs and resume their rightful place as second fiddle to a real team, Fenway Ed literally fights to stay in the playoff race. Here's to hoping the two of you don't make it.
The Russian's cut!!!! The Russian's cut!!! The Fighting Spitzers made a statement this week that 1. they are not out of this 2. they can still win it all and 3. they can take on all comers. The difference? Power and speed. 15 total homers and an amazing 42 runs scores were the difference in this one. Meanwhile T-Dub is left scratching his head while looking at his 0 stolen bases this week. Amazing how important one category can be.
