AZ SnakePit Fantasy Baseball: Week 1

The first week is in the books, and an odd, shortened yet trans-continental kind of week it was, starting in Japan with the Mariners-A's series, then taking a break, before finally getting back into action over the past four days. That made for some tight games, with no team scoring more than seven points or, consequently, less than three. Here are the short results from the Premier Division, with details and the standings after the jump. Hopefully, Clefo and BattleMoses will pop in with updates from their leagues as well.

AZ SnakePit 5, Mizzoula Osprey 3
Alabama Slammers 3, MyWieterGetzLongoria 5
Blonde Streaks 4, Waffles 3
Sofa King Juiced 7, Ignatius J. Rallies 3
The Fighting Amish 5, Lil Bitches 4

AZ SnakePit 5, Mizzoula Osprey 3
A rematch of last year's championship game saw Snake obtain a degree of revenge for their defeat, with Hitter of the week Miguel Cabrera (3 HR, 8 RBI) getting support from Corey Hart's three HR. Putz saved two, though an ERA over six wasn't good. Hosmer had two HR and five RBI for Osprey

Alabama Slammers 3, MyWieterGetzLongoria 5
Wieter used a great performance from Jered Weaver (W, 10 K, 0.00 ERA) as the cornerstone of their victory, also getting W's from Garcia and Hanrahan. Slammers picked up three Saves by Francisco, and Cespedes delivered three HR (one of which should probably count for two).

Blonde Streaks 4, Waffles 3
Runs, Wins and Saves all ended tied in this very close contest, and the single HR by which Blonde prevailed proved decisive. Kemp had two HR and eight RBI for them, while Waffles countered with Bruce's three homers. Both Blonde's victories came out of the 'pen, from Valverde and Clippard.

Sofa King Juiced 7, Ignatius J. Rallies 3
Sofa enjoyed the nearest thing to a blowout this week, sweeping hitting behind a well-balanced offense that saw six different players homer - Santana had two. On the mound, they also got ten strikeouts by Dempster, plus a W + 9 K from Lewis. Betancourt's save for the Rallies was the only by either team.

The Fighting Amish 5, Lil Bitches 4
Lil's auto-picked team didn't actually do badly, only going down to the Amish after RBI ended tied at 12, despite having four players on the DL. Markakis homered twice and Guerra picked up two saves for them. For Amish, Cueto got a scoreless W and Hamilton batted .455 for the week.

Los Wailoracles 4, Phoenix Platypi 4
Nothing could separate these two teams, with HR and RBI ending level. Freese drove in six for the Platypi, and Wright hit .667 for Los, who edged hitting by dint of taking BA by .001. The Platypi replied in kind on the mound, Johnson getting two of their three Saves and Verlander fanning seven.

soco knows 6, CompleteGameShutout 4
Ethier drove in eight for soco, who took four of the categories at the plate, with Fielder going deep twice on their account - Beltran did the latter for Complete. They also had Pitcher of the Week Billingsley (W, 0 ERA, 11 K), but soco's collective 1.29 ERA tipped the overall balance of this one in their favor.
