At any rate, hope you all had a great memorial day, and that your team did better than mine last week (hahaha who am I kidding, of course your team had a better week than mine)
The week saw some, ah, extremely unexpected results, with The Cubs Way!! and the Patandrons turning in the top two point totals, and Luke's Six States putting up a shockingly low total for the way his team has been playing all year. This was, apparently, one of the first weeks Caleb has paid attention to the league, and having an actual lineup benefited him greatly. Always good to see a wayward manager come back and win a week. The Slumpbusters weren't the juggernaut they normally are. Oh, and Katie's team ran into another team's best week ever. That'll stop happening eventually, I presume, but its rare to see one team run into so many other teams getting so many multi-starts.
Its also officially after memorial day, which means standings are ok to look at! A quick glance shows only two division leaders are up by more than a game (Camp Campana and those indomitable Slumpbusters), so there is much hope left throughout the league, except for my team, which presently sits at 5 games back, the only such team in the league to be so out of contention...sigh...
This week also featured the much anticipated Clash of the Commisioners. In a very, very close battle, the Banhammers reigned supreme, and MG has bragging rights for ages.
And without further ado, here is the week in review as demanded by the masses

Ok, folks, I lost the files I was doing these in, and to be entirely honest, they're a gigantic pain in the ass. Maybe they'll return in the future, I don't really know. In the meantime, just remember that it's the Slumpbusters and then everyone else in this league, and then me basically at the bottom.
