I'm studying for Law Finals, but I wanted to at least get this thread going. Plus, this weeked sucked donkey sack for me, so I hate everything now.
Headed into week 4 there were 4 undefeated teams: Myself (PatandRons), 105andCounting, Slumpbusters, and BeerBeckettChicken.
I was taken down by FTMitten by a decent margin, the fault of which I'm going to lay completely on the lap of Albert "I used to be good" Pujols. Beckett was taken down by Katie's Taint, aka Goat,on the back of Buster Posey scoring 52 points nad 82 (two starts) by Felix "I start every 3 days" Hernandez. 2 down. Slumpy-mcslumpterton was beat by Katie's tainted glove (don't be confused with all the taint) after yet another solid performance by "I'm good with my team as-is" Katie. Alex Cobb is apparently the best pitcher ever.
That left 105 to dominate Sandberg, handily. Correia got a solid 73 points for Sandberg, but 105 saw 84 out of TONY CINGRANI and 53 out of "I'm in the RP slot but I'm starting anyway" Hisashi Iwakuma. At least my former dude Daniel Murphy only scored 6 points. Well played, 105. Best of luck continuing your streak against Luke, who is 0-4 and ranked 22. He's got a couple of two-starters and a heating up offense though, so don't think you can roll through it.
Here are some stats for ya:
1. BobBrenly: 523
2.Cubbie Blues 505 (ima crush you this week)
1. Troutfield angels 172
2Scherzer Smashers (welcome back) 269
3. LUke 273
Top Offense of the week:
1. Nate Mclouth: 80
2. JOsh Donaldson 72
3.Edwin Encarnationmilk 66
2. Hernandez 82
3. Moore 80
But, to be fair, here is a top 3 *individual* start list:
1 Anibal Sanchez 62
2. Wainright 51 (holler)
3. Zimmerman 50
Closest match: FearBoners and StinkyPete. Poor boners... it's like having a BABIP of .001. It'll turn around--dont sell off yet.
Biggest Blowout: Soler over Angels: 280. Ouch. Second: Brenly over Luke 250.
Tommy, who unrelatedly implemented the new scoring system, is still your overall points leader with 1900. Second place is Beckett and 105 tied at 1786. Troutfield leads the losers with 1012.
Finally, good to see some trade movement going down. Lots of players out there, lots of unused value and potential moves to make. Don't be afraid to ask or get a conversation started, and don't be afraid to add in other teams if it's the way to get something done. Trust me, nothing feels as fullfilling as a threeway.
Also, if you've not seen the message board on fleaflicker, there was a discussion on trade review, expediting, etc. Jump in if you want, though it seems like the early consensus is to leave things as they are--tough luck be damned--unless there's some sort of system glitch.
PS I actually considered benching Pujols this week. Think about that.
2 points. Seriously?
PPS I can't copy paste from fleaflicker. Lame, Brett.
