SnakePit Fantasy Baseball, Week 10

It seems no-one can hang on to the lead in Division 1, for more than a week. The Trail-Hitters move back to the top, after a comprehensive victory - but how long will they remain there?

Trumboner vs. Waffles is the ESPN Game of the Week. Trumboner find themselves in a playoff spot, despite not having yet won two consecutive games; Carlos Gomez and Madison Bumgarner have been their best players to date. Waffles have finally shrugged off the injury bug, and put together a strong run, winning four straight by a margin of 27-11. Nelson Cruz anchors a strong offense, but pitching is weak, with no players ranked in the top 50 this season.
