For those of you who don't know, 23Ryan likes donkeys. AKA, he both scored the most points this week and did so against, arguably, the best fantasy team in the history of baseball: mine. Go Ronny. And Pat.
Also, I sang tribute to George Jones with an 80 year old blind piano player last night. Win.
Here are the top 5 scores of the week:
1. 23Ryan 480
2. BellyFlame 468.99 (what's up with this decimal BS?)
3. Edgar's small rod 444 (I'm rounding--Eff you, decimals)
4. Buck you 436
5 PATandRONs 420 (I rounded up. Sue me)
Brenly "Squeeky Tommy" over ChickenBecket. 416 to 406. Great offense, but a shit-ton of RP points helped Tommy eek out a victory. Cliff Lee helped, too. Well played.
Honorable mention: Boners tried to catch the hammer, but fell short. A good closer would have won you this week: come on down to Caleb's "Closers-R-Us" store for all your closer needs.
We're going to combine Sandberg and Cheeseberg for this one, because they both went doodoo in their pants. 180 and 160 point losses....yikes. Cheeseburger EXTRA deserved his, though, because he's trying to sneak Tepesch in as a starter in a relief spot. The fantasy baseball gods have spoken--hear ye or be cursed yet again.
Top 5 pitchers (overall)
Chris Sale 93
Mat "GODDAMMIT" Harvey 84
George the Rosa 75
Cliff Lee 73
James Shields 71
Best Actual pitchers:
Here we have 4 dudes with complete games. Note the score differences though...I still feel like removing perks like complete games, perfect games, etc, is bad. But whatevs--points are points!
Miller, Lester, Wainright, and Sale. Wouldn't that be a hell of a rotation?? Go Cubs. 66, 54, 54, 55.5.
Best Hitters and Stuff:
Evan Longoria: 81
Joe Mauer: 70
Ryan Doumit: 54
Scutaro, Gordon, Bautista, Pence, Goldschmidt--all around 53.
And...Vernon Wells. On the trading block, with 50 points. Go get 'em.
We had some veto action going on with some trades, so there's that. Jump on the message boards if you want to chime in.
Also, I put Rios on the trading block because 23Ryan is going to offer 1 through 10 picks for him. Eventually.
Slumpers and Goat are the two remaining 1-loss teams...please beat them. Especially Goat--he's getting cocky and soon the 144 character limit of twitter won't be able to contain him. Come on, Edgar. Get it.
Some good matches this week--I'm betting on Boners to mash Tommy up pretty good. Let's get rid of that asterisk, mmkay?
Goat, Slump, and TommyBoy are your top three teams, respectively. Not respectFULLY, mind you.
And about that Goat?? His pitching is scary good. And Chris Davis (Who??) is leading the universe in awesomeness. If he had a second baseman I might actually just have to concede ultimate victory to him.
I probably forgot some stuff, but cut me some slack. I'm still technically (and legally) inebriated.
Party on, BNFLers.
