New, comment

I haven't seen Jim online yet today so I thought I'd get this up - I think he's taking some days off of work to move, so while he is completely internetless, I am in charge. ;)

Week 11 Results

 

Blonde Streaks 4, Shoryukens 4
Good series between these two this week, as both categories were split. Y Molina, Hudson and Lopez each had 5 runs for Blonde, and lead with 36 strikeouts (16 from Cole Hamels). Huston Street and David Aardsma each had 3 saves for Shor, who also took wins and WHIP (barely). RBI and SB were tied and 21 and 3, respectively.

AZ SnakePit 4, Confederate General 6
Lots of big numbers (some good, some bad) put up by both teams. Ryan Braun had 10 runs and 8 RBI for Confederate, who lead in Batting Average by 65 points! Clint Barmes and Alexei Ramirez each had 7 RBI to help SnakePit win that category. Both team's wins were low and the ERAs were over 4, thanks to bad outings by Carlos Marmol (for SnakePit) and Ramon Troncoso and Matt Capps (Confederate). Confederate's lower WHIP and slightly higher Ks helped them win for the week.

GregSchulteOverdrive 3, The Fighting Amish 5
Another see-saw matchup with both teams taking some of each category. Greg had 27 runs to 25, and Amish had 3 wins to 2. Both teams were tied in saves (3) and stolen bases (6). Bronson Arroyo and Dallas Braden combined for 15 Ks to help Greg win there, but Amish held on to ERA and WHIP (despite a horrendous ERA of 18.00 by Chad Qualls!) to win for the week.

Balco's Boys 5, warlords 2
Three categories here ended up tied - runs, wins and batting average (and that's hard to tie!). Balco dominated pitching, helped by 5 saves between Brian Wilson and George Sherrill, while warlords' pitching numbers were hurt by Jonathan Sanchez and Joel Hanrahan. war did win in home runs and stolen bases (both 7 to 5).

Captain Douchebag 2, 7-2 Offsuiters 8
7-2 dominated. Plain and simple. All numbers were pretty widely on their side, with Captain just barely eeking out the win for strikeouts (44 to 43) and saves (3 to 1). Wins was close, but Captain took it 3 to 2. Captain's pitching staff (Calero, Peña) seemed to implode this week, and the offense was too anemic to put up much of a fight.

Arizona Muugens 7, Wimboes Barmy Army 3
Seems like some good splits in this one. Wins and saves were only one point apart, and both went to Muugens. Wimboes took runs, batting average and ERA by a nice sized margin with a lot of help from Skip Schumaker (.458 / 9 R) and Brandon Inge (.381 / 6 RBI) and 0.00 ERAs from Papelbon and Rivera, but it wasn't enough to overcome Brian Roberts and Jayson Werth's 14 RBI and Burnett's and Davis's 16 Ks.

Kapsaicin Kids 6, Desert Dingleberries 4
More one- and two-point differences in this series helped Kaps to the win his week. They barely took stolen bases (6 to 4), wins (4 to 3) and saves (3 to 2) but had pretty wide offensive margins thanks to Victor Martinez, Derek Lee and B.J. Upton. They could've taken batting average, with Upton and Hunter Pence both hitting over .400, but Pedro Feliz hit .083 to knock that down and give that category to Desert. Desert had nice pitching from C.J. Wilson (0.00 ERA), John Danks (1.28 ERA / 0.71 WHIP) and Aaron Harang (10 Ks).

Moving On Uptons 6, Baked 4
A pretty lobsided matchup here, it seems. Uptons won many of the offense stats by a wide margin and took ERA as well (Baked had 3 players with ERAs over 10!). Yet Baked dominated strikeouts 49 to 21, and their pitchers who happened to have low ERAs (Haren, Nick Blackburn) brought in some wins to help out. Baked also had good weeks from Justin Upton (.458) and Evan Longoria (.348) but the offense wasn't enough to win.
