Strasburg, Valverde and K-Rod helped the Yankees take all but one of the pitching categories, while Mauer and Montero made the difference in RBIs. Jeter had a three-homer week for the Expats, while Jay, David Murphy and Maicer Izturis helped take average.

So while the top three in the standings are sure of being in the playoffs, the remaining five championship playoff places are still up for grabs with just two weeks of the regular fantasy season left.

The week 21 matchups are as follows:

Riverkings (1st) v Base On Balls (9th)
Stuff (2nd) v daebhid2 (20th)
Sox (3rd) v Iron Men (8th)
Isotopes (4th) v Chasers (7th)

    Well done to the Riverkings, Wright Stuff and Super Sox for securing their playoff spots.

    I need a few more good weeks to keep in contention. Let’s see how the Chasers fare against the Isotopes this week!

    Cheers
    Matt
