I WON!! I WON EVERYONE, I WON!!!

There were a lot of close games this week, but, most importantly, I WON. AND IT FEEL SOOOOO GOOD. My pitching finally did what I thought it was going to, and I put up 451pts.

I'd go more in depth in to everyone else's games and some of the other storylines, but Ive got finals work so I need to keep this short. On with the review:

This week was brutal. You call it the demise of royalty, but we lost by less than 9 points combined. Both match-ups were back and forth all week, so it was fun regardless.

MG is going to take care of Toxic Beatz this week and I'm going to take down the juggernaut Camp Campana and reclaim my place atop the division.

Oh, goodie. I get 23ryan as he's coming off the week in which he led the league in points.

This could be a problem.

YAY! I benched Mr. 33 point Jayson Werth for Shane Robinson. difference in the week there and now Werth is (for all intents and purposes) done for the season.

Why did I bench him, you may ask...because I was all set to trade him but got greedy. DAMN YOU BASEBALL GODS!!! Should be either 4-1 with a worthless Jayson Werth or 3-2 with Mark Reynolds.

This week was why I love this league! Plenty of twitter chatter and smack all week then just when I thought I lost BAM Adam Jones dethroned the King with an 17th inning HR. So far this league has exceeded my expectations.

Well, the week just started and I think I'm down by about 300 points with no pitchers going until saturday, which by my calculations I'll be down about 600 points by then. Yay team!

Yeah, sorry about that. My boys like to run up the score. Very disrespectful.

It's all good. My team is good for allowing other teams to have great weeks. Glad I can help out.
