Salt Creek Sluggers-7
Roscoe Village Hot Dogs-2
The Hot Dogs were looking for like cocktail weinies as the Sluggers boiled, steamed, and grilled them in one swoop. And he did it with pitching. Both teams put up dreadful hitting stats (how do you win a week with a .171 batting average?), but Matt Garza, David Price, and Chris Carpenter lead the way to victory for The Counselor. That decisive win puts the Salt Creek Sluggers atop PG East and the Hot Dogs in the cellar.
Strong win for #9, as 3K and the Cornholers sink deeper into the cellar of PG West. Solid week for Joey Votto, who lead the way for #9, with Ian Kinsler and Jose Reyes cementing the win. Some of 3K's boppers are looking more like bloopers. Gordon Beckham (.105), Adam Lind .115), Kendry Morales (.222), sheesh!
Going into Sunday, T-Dub were leading the Franks 10-0, and I thought for a moment this one would be skunkarific. Instead, Fenway Ed was able to eek out WHIP and tie in RBI. This was by no means a thumping, as the majority of categories were close. That goes to show you just how important every at-bat is. What I would have liked to see was the 10-0 Cobra lead turned on it's head (with Fenway Ed stealing it). Instead, Ed embarrasses himself, his team, and the Boston faithful and T-Dub sits atop PG West.
Wow, a stalemate!! The SwinGERS dominating at the dish, and Rocky Mike toeing the rubber like a pro. While Tim Lincecum didn't record a win, he did rattle off 21 K's in two outings, that is filthy. Nice bounce back from Matt Holliday this week, and who can deny Miguel Cabrera's status as a fantasy God? Nice matchup, was a fun one to follow.
Clark & Addison-5
Another slatemate, what is going on in Sportsworld? 3 losses and 2 no-decisions for Linc stood in his way from running the table on the mound this week. The Daddy's were one swipe short of tying stolen bases (a combined 13 stolen bags, quite impressive). I'm sure Hef is excited to throw Cub savior Starlin Castro into the old lineup this week. Grab some pine, Theriot...you've been replaced.
What a week for Yankee Mike! Despite Posada sitting and Cano lacking luster, the rest of the squad picked it up at the plate. Alex Rios, Austin Jackson (what a stud), and Michael Young all had banner weeks. Ladies and gentleman, Elvis has left the base he was standing on (5 swipes, nice!!). After a big win against top notch Tallcorn, the Heat were trounced, and lost any ground (and momentum) they gained. Don't get me wrong, Mr. Hackman didn't have that bad of a week. The CO Yankees just had a better one.
