The RBIs, who finished sixth in the standings, are celebrating after defeating the top seeded Stuff 8-4 to be crowned champions. The RBIs took five out of six offensive categories, as Granderson hit four homers and drove in 12 runs, Cespedes homered three times, Moss drove in 10 and Hill scored 10. Lynn won two games, and Weaver, Miguel Gonzalez and Harrell each added victories while Rodney and Parnell combined for seven saves. The Stuff had plenty of speed from Everth Cabrera, who stoles six bases, and Trout, while David Hernandez picked up the lone hold and Wainwright, Latos and Wood helped take ERA and WHIP.

The Riverkings rebounded from their semi-final loss by defeating my Isotopes 8-3, taking five offensive categories on the way to third place. Howie Kendrick and Wright were the two top hitters, while Jackson also had a nice week and a bit and Solano and Butler each belted a pair of homers. Motte and Wilton Lopez took care of saves while Cobb, who won twice, joined Greinke, Sanchez, Hellickson and Carpenter in taking ERA and WHIP. Iwakuma, Kuroda, Price and Parker each picked up two wins for my Isotopes, while Thayer had three holds. AJ Ellis homered twice in an otherwise forgettable matchup for my hitters.

Victories in five offensive categories helped the Anglers defeat the Sox 7-5 in the battle for fifth. Chatham benefited from Miguel Cabrera sealing his triple crown, as well as a monster week from Torii Hunter and Buster Posey while Ethier led the team with seven runs. On the mound, the relievers had a big impact, as Storen had a win and a save, Benoit had two victories, and Casilla and Gregerson picked up a save each. The Sox took the remaining pitching categories thanks to Hanson’s strikeouts, holds from Cook, Grilli and Herrera and great ERA and WHIP numbers from Harang and Burnett. Hanley, De Aza and Jennings combined for seven steals.

SWAT ended the season with a comfortable 11-1 win against Iron Men to claim seventh place. Hunter Pence belted three homers and Doumit, Encarnacion, Donaldson and Beltran all went deep twice. On the bases, Pedroia swiped four bags, Bourn had three and Adam Jones a pair. Five different pitchers collected wins, with Kershaw, Medlen and Morrow helping take ERA and WHIP. Braun, Davis, Greene and Victorino helped Iron Men take average, while Frieri had a win and three saves.

 

AND FINALLY:

Thanks to everyone for playing this year. It’s great to see the league expand to 20 teams, a new high for this league, and we had many more people interested in playing than the 20 slots allowed in the league. Hopefully it’s been fun for the veterans as well as the rookies, and I look forward to seeing you back in the 2013 league.
