Roscoe Village Hot Dogs-7
Clark & Addison-3
An instant classic (especially if you're PG). The Hot Dogs and C&A headed into Sunday night's Mets-Cards game with C&A all tied up. The entire week turned into Jason Bay vs. Colby Rasmus. With one swing of the bat (a three run homer) by Colby Rasmus, the Hot Dogs overtook home runs 6 to 5 and RBI's 28-26. Ironically, it was Rasmus' only hit of the week, going 1 for 18. That's right, one swing can mean the difference in a 5-5 stalemate and a 7-3 beating. Welcome to Sportsworld, Clark and Addison!
The Daddy's bounce back after a tough week to beat the highly touted Rockpile. The Daddy's put together a great combination of power and speed, and carried the day despite The Rockpile almost running the table on the mound (including a no-no from Ubaldo). I said it last week and i'll say it again, how awesome is Rocky Mike's pitching staff? Great stat matchup was the stolen base category, which Hef won by a score of 8-7 (including 4 from Ryan Theriot alone). Dan Uggla provided some great production for The Rockpile, while .800 hitter Benji Molina ended up at .529 for the Daddy's.
Salt Creek Sluggers-6
I liked this matchup because the seemingly outmatched, outplayed SwinGERS were able to cobble together a relatively close matchup, and averted absolute disaster. Consider, the sluggers absolutely mauled The Ger in homers 17-2, RBI 45-16, and Runs 34-27. Linc was also able to win 6 games, have an ERA of 2.18 and a WHIP of 1.02. Sounds like a skunk right? Wrong! The SwinGERS bested the SCS by putting up a 2.16 ERA and an amazing 1.00 WHIP. Add a 3-1 win in the saves category, and you've got yourself a game. A valiant effort by The SwinGERS, but the Salt Creek blitzkrieg was just too much. Chase Utley hit 5 homers last week for Linc, unbelievable!
The Fenway Franks-6
Take cover, 3K, I believe the trash talk is headed your way. A relatively close match at the plate, but a different story on the mound. The Cornholer rotation has to be giving 3K agita, with Jon Lester being an utter disappointment thus far. Homer Bailey has proven to be a bust, and Jorge de la Rosa wasn't able to replicate his first stellar outing against San Diego. All Fenway Ed needed was Doc Halladay, Johan, and Ricky Nolasco to put to stable numbers (which they did) to carry him across the finish line. A stat to note is the stolen base category, with The Cornholers garnering 8 this week. Quite impressive.
Nice win for Yankee Mike, who climbs back to .500 heading into week 3. Speed and pitching was the name of this game. Stealing bases, scoring runs, and solid pitching was the winning formula for the CO Yankees. Meanwhile, T-Dub followed up a monster week one with a flat out disappointing performance in week 2. The Rollins injury certainly hurts, as does the Scott Kazmir outing vs. the real New York Yankees. The CO Yankees received great production out of rookie Austin Jackson and youngster Elvis Andrus. What a shame they were riding pine.
An overall solid week by the Fighting Spitzers against an anemic Hoosier Heat. Shin Soo Choo and Matt Kemp lead Client #9 at the plate, with a combined 7 bombs, 19 RBI and 2 stolen bases. Client #9 remains 2.5 games behind the Fenway Franks, while Mr. Hackman is hovering around .500 at the bottom of PG West.
