Week 1 results
DFA'ders 5, AZ SnakePit 5
Despite playing three man short, SnakePit held their own, thanks largely to DFA'ders pitching problems. The batting categories were mostly easy wins for DFA (such as 46-17 in RBIs), but SnakePit's better average was enough to give them a point, and leave the game tied.
Man of the Match: Matsui (DFA): 6 runs, 3 HR, 7 RBI, .400
BigLebowski 10, Uk Dbacks 0
Oops. The commissioner's office launched an investigation after the UK Dbacks benched all their players, but could find no evidence of collusion. "I think we're talking simple incompetence," a spokesman said. :-) Needless to say, Big took full advantage to roar into joint first place.
Man of the Match: Lee (Big): 7 runs, 3 HR, 6 RBI, .375
?Chalino Sanchez! 1 JByrnesIsMyHomie 8
JByrnes swept to victory across the board in the hitting section, but Chalino put up a better fight in pitching, and this could easily have been closer. However, the thrashings administered to Hudson and Peavy deflated the Sanchez challenge this week, and they'll want their aces to step it up.
Man of the Match: Atkins (JByr): 8 runs, 1 HR, 7 RBI, .462
The Loose Seals 6 Browncoats 1
This could also have ended up much tighter, with three categories (wins, saves and RBIs) ending in exact ties. Edmonds hitting only .174 helped down the Browncoats. Neither team managed to get a single save this week - that was particularly surprising for Seals, who had both Foulke and Rivera.
Man of the Match: Jones (Loose): 7 runs, 2 HR, 12 RBI, .310
7-2 Offsuiters 0 GregSchulteOverdrive 10
Another clean sweep, but this one was legit, with the Offsuiters unable to resist a tidal wave of offense and pitching hurled at them by GregSchulte. Saves and WHIP were the two closest categories, but both saw Offsuiters defeated, and left to lick their wounds, hoping for better to come
Man of the Match: Schilling (Greg): 2 wins, 1.93 ERA, 0.79 WHIP
BBTNG 2 The Fighting Amish 8
Strong pitching led the Amish to victory, with a team ERA of just 2.35, and a WHIP, remarkably, of 0.99. They swept BBTNG there, but the hitting categories were split, with BBTNG winning in HR and RBI quite convincingly, behind Pujols' 3 HR, 8 RBI performance. Six players had stolen bases for the Amish.
Man of the Match: Penny (Fight): 2 wins, 14 K, 1.50 ERA
Random Fandom 2 KarateMonkeyDeathCar 7
Karate's pitchers managed five wins and two saves, despite only posting 19 K's for the week. Fandom found themselves saveless, with both Gagne and MacDougal hitting the DL. They did push Karate close in hitting thought, with just one home run and 10 BA points splitting the teams there.
Man of the Match: Hafner (Kar): 8 runs, 4 HR, 6 RBI, .391
