So I'm sick, can't sleep, and am bored out of my mind. So I'm going to give this a shot. Trying to think of other things to throw in here as I go.

 

Best 3 Teams of the Week

  • League Leaders in Belly Fire - 520.33
  • Katie's Wrench - 432
  • Hamburglers - 420.5

Worst 3 Teams of the Week

  • Fear Boners - 264.49
  • Soler Power - 270.51
  • Sandberg! - 274

Best Eligible Hitter At Each Position
 

C - Buster Posey (Katie's Wrench...) - 45 Points

1B- Prince Fielder (Waving Wendells) - 65 Points

2B- Jason Kipnis (League Leaders) - 56 Points (Ryan Rayburn had 64 as a sort of FA)

3B- Miguel Cabrera (Cubbie Blues) - 77 Points

SS- Jean Segura (We Will Buck You) - 52 Points

OF- Carlos Gomez (We Score This Like Golf, Right?) - 79 Points

OF- Mike Trout (Angels in the TroutField) - 72 Points

OF- Starling Marte (We Will Buck You) - 68 Points

UTIL- Mark Trumbo (Stinky Pete) - 62 Points

 

Best Possible Pitching Staff (Only True RPs for the RP slot)

 

SP - Kevin "Who?" Slowey (The Hamburglars) 90 Points

SP - Justin "Who?" Verlander (Katies Wrench...) 87 Points

SP - Max Scherzer (Scherzer Schmashers) 81 Points

RP - Sergio Romo (The Hamburglars) 62 Points

RP - Edward Mujica (The Hamburglars) 45 Points

P   - Jaime "Don't Call Me Jamie" Garcia (Waving Wendells) 74 Points

P   - Tim Hudson (We Will Buck You) 73 Points

 

Worst 3 Owned Pitchers of the Week

  • Roy Halladay (Hamburglars) -46 Points (Bummer)
  • Marco Estrada (Bob Brenly...) -21 Points
  • Clayton Richard (Angels in the TroutField) -20 Points

 

Closest Matchup: PatandRons over Cubbie Blues (5.34 points)
Biggest Blowout: League Leaders over Hot 4 Rizzo (119 points)
Strongest Loss: Hamburglers (420.5 points, lossed to MG by 11.5 points)
Weakest Win: Stinky Pete (297.17 points, beating Sandberg! and his 274)

 

Most Glorious Owners After 5 weeks:

1. MG - 4-1 (2118.15 Points)

2. Spencer 4-1 (2101.67 Points)

3. Slumpbusters 4-1 (2071.98 Points) (That's me!)

4. Katie - 4-1 (2036.16 Points)

5. caleb - 4-1 (1948.5 Points) 

 

Owner who should be on the hot seat After 5 weeks:

1. Fear Boners 0-5 (1555.82 Points) (Hope the previous owner is coaching 1st base in the Mexican League by now.)

2. A bunch of other 1-4 teams.

 

Longest Winning Streak:

From the Mitten - 3 straight wins

 

Longest Losing Streak:

No Reason to single him out again.

 

Best Week 6 Matchups:

Cubbie Blues (3-2) vs. Tainted Glove (4-1)

105 and Counting (4-1) vs. Soler Power (3-2)

 

Worst Week 6 Matchup:

Katie's Wrench In Ya Taint (4-1) vs. We Score This Like Golf, Right? (1-4)

 

The Marlins vs Astros Matchup for week 6:

Angels in the TroutField (1-4) vs. Sandberg! Right Ahead! (1-4)

 

Best Multiple Start pitchers for week 6:

Clay Buchholz (Waving Wendells)

James Shields (23ryan)

Matt Harvey (23ryan)

 

Other Shit:

MG is 4-1 despite giving up the 5th most points in the league.

SirCub and Hansman are 1-4 despite giving up the 4th/5th fewest points in the league.

Every Owner has signed in within the last 2 days. That is Awesome! Keep it up!!!

 

 

Pretty Sure all that was accurate.

You forgot Best Looking Owner and Most Likely To Shit The Bed this week.
I'm off to a shoddy start with Bumgarner finally being human.

Nice work Vaughn! Remember: we wear caps and sleeves at this level, son.

I'm all for the taint to be shitty this week. Wait, that didn't sound quite right. I would love to see Cashner dublicate what he did against Miami later this week (and Bumgarner).

Go fuck yourself CB. It's early yet.

(And I'll probably lose. BUT I beat Slumpbusters and TC so I'm good for the season!)

Also, thanks for not calling me out on "dublicate", whatever that is. I wonder why it didn't show up on spell-check?

Nah, I make enough spelling errors to call anyone else out on them.

It's gonna be an interesting week. Best of luck to you!

"MG is 4-1 despite giving up the 5th most points in the league."

 

Yeah but I've had the best come from behind rallies in the league every week it looks like I'm toast by Wed/Thurs only to watch my team rally and win on Sunday night.

 

Whats worse than how many points I've given up is how I have beaten teams in the top five in points most weeks by being just above them in points.

 

Its been a fun ride but at some point it will catch up with me OR my team will start to score consistently and TAKE OVER THE LEAGUE.

Not only has my team been terrible, I've had a brutal schedule to start the season.  Including this week.  But I don't think Goat will need to worry about making a comeback this round.  I'm pretty confident my pitching staff will post enough negative numbers to let him sleep easy most of the week.

Nice work--but link to it on the message board!  I hate showing up late to the party.  Wait, that's the opposite of true now that I think about it. 

 

Great Goat comeback, as much as I hate to admit that. Also good to see Katie and Luke kicking ass this week. 

 

And, again, I watched a good size lead all week (60ish points) evaporate suddenly with a whippersnapper trying to make a rally. Luckily, the rallies against me seem to be Cubs-style 9th inning rallies, meaning that even though I--for a moment--was down 2.66 points, I again cruised into the lead with a 5.66 victory.  

 

These matches are too stressful.  I almost hope that 23Ryan blows my team away with his 9 pitchers all having 3 starts this week.  Or, alternatively, that they all go poopy on their pants and I lead by a comfortable few hundred points heading into the weekend.  We'll see.

That whole "leading by a few hundred points heading into the weekend" thing doesn't always work so well.

Yep.  The Goat gets an easy one this week.

 

McDonald goes on the DL and Peralta actually pitches a pretty good game against Texas.  After I moved McDonald off the bench and sat Peralta because Peralta was facing Texas.

Hansman's gonna be mad when his cheeseburgers all get charred from being so close from the fire emitting from the bellies of my players.

I'm off to a good start and that's before my aces come out to play. I sure to hope Cabrera gets a chance to play sometime this week though. The rain-outs are going to kill his numbers this week.

This season has been a shit show for my FearBoners. But I'm still hopeful I can turn it around. I've been plagued with bad pitching (ahem, David Price), injuries and weak starts (ahem, Josh Hamilton)..... Hey, I'm trying here....
