Results

GregSchulteOverdrive 3, AZ SnakePit 6
League leaders Greg lost at the hands of Snake, despite posting five wins - two from closer Baez. That was their only pitching success, thanks to a 5.67 ERA. Lee provided all their homers but Snake took the hitting behind Iguchi, Sizemore and Willingham.
Man of the Match: Lee (Greg) - 5 R, 4 HR, 7 RBI

Browncoats 6, DFA'ders 4
What can Brown do for you? Pitch. A 1.81 ERA and 40 K's highlighted their week, though both W and SV went DFA's way, closer Jones notching three saves. Weeks' 4 steals were crucial for Brown, but Berkman's 7 RBI won that category for DFA.
Man of the Match: Glavine (Brown) - 0.00 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, 10 K

JByrnesIsMyHomie 5, Uk Dbacks 3
Sv and HR were tied, while Byrnes rolled to victory in hitting, behind Guerrero's 8 RBIs and CoJack's 7 runs. Howard hit three homers and drove in 9 for UK, who also got three saves from Ryan and a strong outing from Radke.
Man of the Match: Smoltz (Byrnes) - W, 13 K, 0.92 WHIP

BigLebowski 1, The Fighting Amish 9
For the second week in a row, Big were almost shutout, winning WHIP by just 0.01. Otherwise, it was all Amish, with Big being swept in hitting, despite a good week for Thome (8 R, 3 HR, 9 RBI). Valverde saved four games for Amish.
Man of the Match: Utley (Amish) - 9 R, 3 HR, 8 RB, .483

?Chalino Sanchez! 5, KarateMonkeyDeathCar 5
A tie seems right. Karate had the edge in hitting, but Chalino pipped them in pitching. HR was the closest category; Sanchez have 4 by Ordonez to thank for victory there. Gordon and Isrinhausen notched five shutout saves for Karate.
Man of the Match: Hafner (Karate) - 7 R, 4 HR, 13 RBI, .320

The Loose Seals 6, BBTNG 3
The TV encounter went to Seals on the back of strong pitching (1.09 WHIP) from Vazquez and Harang. BBTNG were lead by 13 K's from Bush; Hunter's .440 average gave BBTNG that category. Dunn's 3 HR (curse him!) countered a pair for Loose's Burrell.
Man of the Match: Vazquez (Loose) - 2 W, 1.32 ERA, 13 K, 0.95 WHIP

Random Fandom 8, 7-2 Offsuiters 1
7-2 were a one-man army this week: Glaus was great (9 R, 4 HR, 8 RBI), but the rest of their team couldn't withstand Fandom's overall assault. HR were tied; Sv went to 7-2; the rest was all Random, though W and SB only by a single point.
Man of the Match: Santana (Random) - 2 W, 20 K, 0.79 WHIP

ESPN's game of the week is Random Fandom vs. JByrnesIsMyHomie. Despite a "hands-off" approach by Fandom - they've made no moves since Draft Day - they have a record solidly above .500. They rely on solid starting, led by Webb, though have yet to get a save. League leaders JByrnes have Contreras as their ace, and a well-balanced offense that has six players with 20+ RBIs.
